crispy moong dal namkeen

Ok, I'll be honest, I've been spending wayyy too much time on Twitter following #workingfromhome. And I'm jealous, of the lovely co-workers, read pet cats and dogs, that so many folks have. And here I am stuck with actual humans. But I guess that has some advantages too, at least I don't have to do the dishes. But I still feel, one look at that smushy puppy face and I would have forgotten all my stress and anxiety. This working from home thing has me discovering some new things about myself. One, I like hoarding vegetables. Yes, I'm less of a grocery or TP hoarder, but leave me with less than 3 types of veggies in the fridge, and I'm anxious. Two, I can live without chips, chocolate and ice cream. I know the rest of the world ran out of TP, but Bangalore ran out of chips. Apparently, that's what we need to fuel us down here. Three, I still am not a fan of exercise, well that's not a new one. Four, I love cooking more than I ever thought.

I've discovered in the absence of travel to work, I'm left with a lot more time, and I am investing that in cooking and prepping. We are eating more and more hot breakfasts that take a little longer to make, I've sundried two batches of potato chips, I've made 3 bottles of instant mango pickle, a few bottles of ice tea and pineapple squash, and I'm making a lot of snacks. Last week I posted the Paper Avalakki Mixture, which has been kind of a lifeline, because it also doubles up as breakfast when required. I've made loads of Churmuri Chiwda to much on along with tea. And this week I made this Crispy Moong Dal, in total Haldiram's style.

crispy moong dal namkeen


Crispy Moong Dal or Moong Dal Namkeen flooded the Indian market in the late 1990s and took the urban population by a storm. Everyone loved this simple salty snack. It became a family favorite, something to serve when your family and friends dropped in unannounced on the weekends. Kids loved it, double dipping their wet fingers into the bowl and amused when the dal stuck to their fingers, eh, just for this reason, always give kids their own bowl of moong dal. I've loved Moong Dal namkeen from the time I first ate it. But I never attempted to make it. Frankly I had no clue it was so easy to make it, until now.

Crispy Moong Dal requires just 3 ingredients in reality - the moong dal, salt and oil to fry it in. While the time taken to make the crispy moong dal is long, it is mostly effortless. The moong dal needs to soak for a good 3 to 4 hours and dry for nearly 1 hour before you can start frying it. This soak and dry time makes up for most of the time taken. Once the moong dal is dry, we fry it using a mesh strainer. The reason for this is simply because the dal is too small and if directly dumped in the oil, will spread all throughout and it will take a lot of effort to fish out every grain from the oil. A mesh strainer makes it much easier to fry. The temperature of the oil matters a lot here. If the oil is not hot enough, you will end up with a box of moong dal that is hard and not crispy. Very unpleasant. To test the temperature of the oil, drop in 1 or 2 grains, if they immediately rise to the top, the oil is hot enough.

Once you have fried the moong dal, use a clean paper napkin to remove the excess oil and immediately add seasoning. If you allow the dal to cool, the salt will not stick to the moong dal. I only added salt, you can add spices if you want.

Crispy Moong Dal stayed crisp and fresh for about a week in an airtight box. It didn't last beyond it for me to determine the shelf life.

Almond Flour Cookies Recipe | 4 Ingredient Gluten Free Almond Cookies [Video]


Gluten-Free Almond Cookies recipe with step by step video instructions. Gluten Free Almond cookies are crescent shaped eggless cookies made with almond flour, butter, and sugar. Crescent Almond Cookies are dusted with powdered sugar to make them super delicious treat!

gluten free eggless almond flour cookies

Friday evening, a retro song, a hot cup of tea and these almond cookies (and of course Instagram!). A perfectly relaxing moment in my week.

That's exactly what I was doing until I started writing this post. It's a beautifully warm evening, not too hot not too cold, just like how Goldilocks likes it. My trusty laptop is playing melodious songs on YouTube, I have a nice cup of tea and these sugar-coated almond flour cookies, that I dunk into my tea amidst browsing Instagram for the latest trends (and also cute puppy videos). This is exactly how I found this recipe.

gluten free eggless almond flour cookies


gluten free eggless almond flour cookies


I was as usual browsing through Insta when this cookie caught my eye. Just 4 ingredients and virtually no work. Making them is as relaxing as eating them. I had to make them, especially, since I have been experimenting with going gluten-free. Off the shelf gluten-free cookies are super expensive and not that great either, I am yet to find a one I love. But this one was love at first lick. Yes, lick. Did I not mention that these cookies are rolled through powdered sugar? So yummy....

Almond flour, while extremely common in other countries, isn't yet so easily available in India. I found a lot of options at Food Hall in Bangalore. It is also available online on Amazon. But if none of those work out for you, you can make your own at home. I found this recipe on Minimalist Baker that seems simple enough - How to make Almond Flour.

gluten free eggless almond flour cookies


Once you have the almond flour, you are all set. Oh, yeah, you also need butter at room temperature. If you forgot to keep the butter out of the fridge (like me!), then the best way to use it is to grate the cold butter and use it in the recipe. So almond flour, butter, powdered sugar and vanilla, that is all you need. The original recipe that I remember skipped the vanilla, but I love the aroma of vanilla wafting through the house. Plus I like my cookies flavored with something.

Mix all ingredients in a bowl until you have a dough that you can shape. If it feels loose, add a little milk or water or more butter. Everyone loves more butter. Shape it how you like it. The recipe I followed had them crescent shaped so I stuck to it. Once the cookies are shaped and baked, you have to do the most important step - the rolling in sugar. The rolling has to happen while the cookies are still hot or warm so that the sugar sticks to the cookie. So, either cool the cookies for 5 minutes on a wire rack and roll in the powdered sugar or if you have fireproof hands, just drop them in the sugar immediately from the baking tray and toss well until all the cookies are coated.

Enjoy it with your cup of tea or coffee or milk, whichever is your sin!

Patoli Recipe | Sihi Kadabu Recipe | Goan Patoleo Recipe [Video]


Patoleo or Patoli is a traditional Konkani sweet made for Nag Panchami or Ganesh Chaturthi. Patholi are jaggery-coconut stuffed rice rolls that are steamed in fresh Turmeric leaves. This dessert is also made in Udupi-Mangalore as Sihi Kadabu.

Patoli Recipe, Sihi Kadabu Recipe, Goan Patoleo Recipe

Patoli or Patoleo or Sihi Kadabu, a sweet with many names and just as many different recipes. Last year when I saw fresh turmeric leaves in the market, I felt the desire to make this sweet. After all, Gee loves it and so does Raj. Me? Not as much a fan of it. but I will still eat it because it is sweet and my sweet tooth can rarely pass an opportunity to be indulged. 

And then began the quest to find the perfect recipe - my mom's recipe. It is times like this that I feel the huge gap my mom's absence has left me with. She never wrote down her recipes or even remembered it enough to tell us. She believed we need to watch and learn when she cooked something. And most often, we did not, because I think we believed she will always be around to help us out when we needed it. So there I was with these fresh seasonal leaves and no recipe.

Patoli Recipe, Sihi Kadabu Recipe, Goan Patoleo Recipe


The first thing I did was look up recipes online, only to find so many variations, that I ended up confused. Next, I messaged by Goan friends, hoping to find some commonality there. Alas, there too each one had their own version. I called up my aunt to get her recipe, wishing she had my mother's recipe, but it wasn't it. I could make any one of the 100 recipes that I find online, but just 1 will taste close to what she made it. And I was on the lookout for that recipe. I'm not sure this is exactly the one, but it sure came close. I had photos from the last time she made them for us and I just found them the other day, so when I saw those turmeric leaves again in the market, it was go time. 

It is a simple recipe I'm sharing today, 7 ingredients including the fresh turmeric leaves. And that sounds just like amma. She never over-complicated her cooking. It was the simplest one with the least ingredients but tasted delicious, I guess it was the magic in her hands. Last year, I cooked the filling, this year the pics showed me, my mom, just mixed it and there was no cooking involved. Last year I soaked raw rice, then ground it to make the dough, this year I just used rice flour, as one of the pics seem like that's what she did. This is the only step I don't have photos of. The rest is similar to all the recipes. And guess what, this year, the patoli came damn close to the real deal. And we've all wolfed down so many, that we've lost count. I only hope I've done justice to her recipe.

Vegan Omelette Recipe | How to make omelet without eggs [Video]

Vegan Omelette or Vegetarian Omelet without eggs! This omelet is made using chickpea flour and plain all purpose flour.  Enjoy it guilt free!

In a hurry? Jump to Video or Jump to Recipe

eggless omelette made with chickpea flour

This Vegan Omelette HAS to be on your breakfast menu!!

Eggs have always been so tightly associated with breakfast, that if you don't eat any (like me), you are left with very few options. Well, until now!! Presenting the Omelet without eggs, that tastes just like it was made with eggs. You can hardly tell the difference.

This Omelet has become a go-to breakfast for us on those busy weekday mornings or on those really lazy Sunday mornings. Sometimes, dinner too.

I have to thank Gee for introducing me to this recipe. She saw this online and made it for me. We LOVED it!! We were surprised that this tasted so much like the real deal. I've tried the cheese omelet and trust me, that is so so close to the Cheese Omelet made with eggs that you could fool anyone.

eggless omelette made with chickpea flour


Wondering what makes this taste like the real egg omelette? Black Salt. Just one simple ingredient.

The funky smell of black salt has always been equated to that of eggs. The smell comes because of the high sulphur content in the salt. Much like those hot water springs, but much milder. Black salt is now easily available online and pretty much all over the world. If you do buy black salt, you can use it in so many more recipes or sprinkle it over fruits or that salad for a different taste.

Why you SHOULD make this Omelette:

  • If you turned vegan and miss eating eggs, then you should make this and be guilt free. You can eat the cake and have it too!
  • It is so easy to make, you should definitely add it to your breakfast recipes list. After all, we are always looking for one more of those to add to the kitty.
  • If you've never eaten eggs in your life, at least, now you will know what they taste like and what the hypes all about.
  • Got any more good reasons? Leave a comment.

Summer is almost over and the love of my summers is going to go out from markets soon. Until then we are going to honour the king of fruits - Mango. For us, in the tropics, summer isn't all about the Sun, we see the Sun all year round. But summer brings with it the delicious juicy selection of seasonal fruits like the mango, jackfruit, guavas and melons. But it has always been the mango that rules my heart.

If you love Mangoes as much as I do, you may enjoy these other mango recipes:

Lalbagh in Bangalore has been hosting the annual Mango Mela or Mango Festival for years. Every year farmers from around Bangalore set up their stalls to sell naturally ripened mangoes and organic mangoes. In 2019, it started from 1st June and it is scheduled to be around for 3 weeks. So if you are in the city, do not miss it. They have a wide variety at very competitive prices. We went there on Saturday ago and bought several kilograms of Alphonso, and some of these tiny Sugar Baby or Sakre Gutti. 

I bought the Sugar Baby mangoes only to make this sweet and sour ripe mango curry. You heard it right, ripe mango not raw. The first time I made it I called up several people and collected 5 different recipes, before I decided to make this one given to me by my very close friend from Goa. The Goan version uses Turmeric and Asafoetida, which is optional in the Mangalore version.

There are 2 major variants of this curry - cooked and uncooked. The recipe listed here is the cooked one. The other one, where the coconut masala is not cooked, resembles this Tambuli recipe.

This Mango Curry is best served with rice, but can also be served with bread on the side.

Enjoy the mango season while it lasts!

P.S - This is a repost of a 2015 post. Video instructions are added and the post is altered slightly, but the recipe remains the same.

Sweet and Sour Mango Curry | Saasav | Pashingiri

Sweet and Sour Mango curry made with ripe mangoes and fresh coconut. This recipe is famous along the Konkan coast (Western coast of India) and is a popular curry in Summers.

Recipe Type:  Main Course
Cuisine:          South Indian/ Mangalorean/ Goan
Prep Time:     10 minutes
Cook time:     30 minutes
Yield:              3 Servings

Ingredients:


8 small Ripe Mangoes
1 cup Desiccated Coconut
1 tsp Mustard seeds
2-3 Dry red chillies
2-3 Tbsp Jaggery or Sugar
A marble sized ball Tamarind (Optional)
8-10 Curry leaves
1/2 tsp Turmeric powder / Haldi (Optional)
A pinch Asafoetida / Hing (Optional)
2 tsp Oil
Salt
Water

Method:


1. Wash and peel the mangoes and keep aside
2. Soak the tamarind in half a cup of water and keep aside
3. Dry roast 1/2 tsp of the mustard seeds in a pan on low heat for 1 min. Be careful not to burn it otherwise the curry will turn bitter. 
4. Heat 1 tsp of the oil in the pan, add the red chillies and fry for 30 sec or until the chillies are crisp.
5. Grind the coconut, roasted mustard seeds and red chillies into a coarse paste with a little water. 
6. Heat the remaining oil and add the remaining mustard seeds
7. Once they splutter, add the curry leaves and lower the heat
8. Add the coconut paste, turmeric and asafoetida and mix well. Add 0.5 cup of water and simmer for 6-8 minutes. Turmeric and Asafoetida are used in the Goan version of the curry, while it is optional in the Mangalore version.
9. Slightly mash the mangoes and add to the curry
10. Add water to achieve the desired consistency. Add more if eating with rice and less if with bread.
11. Add salt and jaggery. Do not add all the jaggery at once, taste and add. If the mangoes are very sweet, you may not need much. 
12. Squeeze the tamarind in the water and remove the pulp. Add this sour liquid to the curry. Again, like the jaggery, do not add all the liquid at once, taste and add. If the mangoes are very sour, you may not need it.
13. Cook on low heat for 5 mins.
14. Serve warm with rice or bread.

A quick weeknight fix. That's exactly what this Mavinkayi Chitranna or Raw Mango Rice is.

We've had a week of thunderstorms here in Bangalore and it's been scary. I scare easy, but thunder has never scared me, but I have been pretty jumpy the last weekend. The sound was akin to the sky ripping apart and a few of these extremely loud ones even managed to wake me up. Although we've been swamped with unseasonal rains, I still believe it is Summer, because mangoes, you know. While Bangalore really doesn't have a season for most things, that is, you can find pumpkins and beets all year round, but Mangoes, come only once a year in Summer. So when Summer gives you mangoes, you make sure you make use of it to the fullest. Ripe, raw and everything in between. If you like Mangoes, as much as me, you may also enjoy these other Mango recipes:

I usually shop for the week on Saturday and then prep my veggies for the week ahead. Amidst the thunder and the crazy winds and the heavy downpour, I barely managed to get any meal prep done last weekend. So this Raw Mango Rice just pulled me through Monday. No prep really required, except may be cooking the rice.

Mavinkayi is the Kannada word for raw mangoes and Chitranna, well that's just colorful rice. In all other seasons, Chitranna is made using lemons or limes, but come Summer, tart raw mangoes are the preferred choice. Mavinkayi Chitranna is more of a South Indian fried rice in which leftover rice is tossed with a raw mangoes.

To make Mavinkayi Chitranna, use firm and tart raw mangoes. All green mangoes aren't raw, so pick carefully. Once you have the raw mangoes and some leftover rice, you are all sorted. To make the Raw Mango Rice, all we do is make a tempering of mustard seeds, a few lentils and then toss in grated raw mango along with turmeric and salt and allow the raw mango to cook down slightly. Then toss in the rice and add salt and mix well. Yes, it's as simple as that.

This tastes amazing with a side of Mango pickle, yes more mangoes, or a simple raita.

P.S. - This is a repost of a 2015 post. Only video is added and a few photos. Recipe remains the same.
