Bhindi Fry and Dal Fryl For Dinner
On Thursday, its time for Sai Pooja and arati. My pooja room is filled with lots of positive vibe from the Thursday pooja and the Big picture of Shiridi Sai. Obviously,there will no Onion-no Garlic food at my home on thursday.Not new to me because, my husband goes to sabarimalai once a year (missed out this yr).
Eventhough, he loves onion more than me, its his will power to sacrifice both onion and garlic on this day. Yet, I dont want to compromise on the nutrition that onion and garlic gives. So I substitute with Dal and one extra subji. This time, its Bhindi Fry and Toor- Moong dal fry.
For Bhindi Fry:
9-10 Bhindis washed and drained nicely.Should be done 1/2 hr before cooking, in order to retain crispiness.
For the stuffing powder: In a vessel, add Turmeric powder, Jeera Powder,Coriander Powder,Red Chilli Powder and salt and mix it.
1) Dry pat Bhindi and slit it in two. Stuff with the powder and start frying with little bit oil if you have nonstick. If you dont have non-stick, oil consumption is more.
After doing it, place it on the tissue paper to take the excess oil.
Moong Dal- 1/4 Cup
Toor Dal- 1/4 Cup
Tomato- 1 chopped finely
Curry leaves - Few
Mustard - 1 tsp
Jeera - 1 tsp
Green Chilli- 1 or 2 slitted
Ginger grated - 1 tsp
Coriander Leaves for Garnishing
1) Let the dal cook nicely in cooker or microwave.
2) In a kadai with oil, put the mustard,jeera.After it splutters, add green chilli,curry leaves, Asafoetida,tomatoes and fry for 5- 10 minutes.You can add Dal Water/Broth or Just water.
3) Add dal,salt and cook for couple of minutes. Garnish with Corainder Leaves.
