Poriyal Podi-urad dhal

Poriyal Podi-urad dhal:

It’s the second day of Blogging Marathon, and I have not broken my promise, of making one variety of dhal out of Seven Days of Delicious Dals.

UradDhal+RedChilli
While cooking, powders viz., Sambar Powder, Rasam Powder, Poriyal Podi/Palya Powder/Curry Powder will help you to make the things easily. Powders is not only restricted to these you can make anything which you feel it would be a must for your cooking. Other Powders are Masala Powder, cardamom powder, fenugreek powder, dry ginger powder. You name the ingredient a powder can be made out of it.

Today, I have selected urad dhal to make curry powder or poriyal podi.

Ingredients:

  • Urad dhal – 50 gms
  • Ground nut seeds – 100 gms
  • Fried Gram – 50 gms
  • Fried Gram Dhal
  • Red Chillies – 50 gms

Method:
  1. Roast urad dhal till reddish brown or a kind of aroma comes out
  2. Roast red chillies but watch out it might get burnt out if it is roasted more, it should be roasted either with one teaspoon of oil or without any oil
  3. Roast ground nut seeds
  4. Remember, roast everything separately
  5. Curry Powder/Poriyal Podi
  6. Add roasted ingredients with fried gram dhal and grind them to make a fine coarse powder










Today’s breakfast was Aloo Rice which is made so easily due to this curry powder. Here is the recipe:

  • Chop aloos into small pieces
  • Heat 2 tsp of oil in cooker
  • Add mustard seeds wait till it splutters
  • Add curry leaves and powdered salt
  • Add chopped aloos to the above mixture and mix well
  • Leave it for 3 whistles
  • Once it cools down add curry powder and mix well
  • Serve it with cucumber raita.

Aamvada-channadhal


Aamvada-channadhal:

I feel great to take participate in Blogging Marathon event hosted by Srivalli on Spicing up your life.

Blogging Marathon is an event which is celebrated last two weeks in a month which comes up with some group events. Instead of just blogging it’s an important rule to pass comments in the group on other posts. So Srivalli had made a group in google called as blogging marathon. In this way the communication develops not only between food bloggers but also in the house to find the different recipes related to the group selected. To prepare a dish there might be more than one variety of making it for example check out my versions (1st - gojju mix with rice, 2nd - without gojju) of tomato rice.

I have selected the concept of Seven Days of Delicious Dals. Today is my 1st day, I am posting “aamvada” a vada made from Channa Dal. In my family all of us love to eat vadas, and this is one of them.

Ingredients:
Channa Dal – 100 gms
Baking soda – 1 tsp
Coriander leaves – few
Green Chillies (small sized which will be more spicy) – 3 to 4
Salt – to taste
Oil for deep frying

Method:
Soak channa dal atleast for 3 hours
Remove the water and grind it along with baking soda, green chillies with little water as the consistency should be thick
Add salt and coriander leaves and mix well
Leave the oil to become hot
Make small dough from the hand and make it like a plate drop it in hot oil
Leave it to fry until the color becomes reddish brown
Turn to the other side and leave it to fry
Remove it from the Stove and put it on to vessel which has pores (a vessel which removes extra oil)
Serve it hot with chutney

Walk through the memory lane
Walk through the memory lane by Gayathri @ Gayathri's Cook Spot is an event which says to learn and prepare from our elders. I learnt this from my mother-in-law and for festivals this is a must in my house.
