Today I woke up in the morning with a warm, festival feeling and thought why not celebrate Ganesh Chaturthi by starting with a traditional breakfast, so here we are, why don't you too get into the mood??
Recipe for poories/puris-(makes 8-10 puris)
- Wholewheat flour(atta)-1 cup .
- Warm water- 1/2 cup .
- Salt- 1/4 tsp.
- Oil for deep frying .
Take a large bowl and combine all the above ingredients, adjusting the amount of water, added slowly ,whilst kneading into a tight dough.Roll and shape out into poories,deep fry to a peachy brown .Drain on paper towels and keep aside.
Recipe for masaledaar- chane- (serves 4)
- kale chane-1 cup soaked overnight
- onion- 1 small (very finely chopped)
- tomato- 1 large
- cumin seeds- 1 tsp
- amchur(dry mango pwdr)- 2 tsp
- garam- masala- 1 tsp
- ginger- thinly sliced 2' piece
- green chillies- 2 sliced
- oil- 2 tbsp
- salt to taste
Boil kale channe in pressure cooker till tender, heat oil add cumin seeds and the onions ,fry onions till golden then add tomato ,let cook for 5 mins.,or till oil separates from the masala add kale chane and rest of ingredients and continue cooking for at least 10-15 mins. more, it should be absolutely dry. Serve with the hot poories and halwa.
Recipe for suji-ka-halwa- (serves 3-4)
I am following a slightly different method here ,one which is quick and easy ,yet tastes extremely good!
- suji(semolina)-1/2 cup
- powdered sugar- 1/2 cup
- green cardamom(powdered)- 1/2 tsp
- desi ghee- 2 large tbsp.
- water - 2 cups
- dry fruit (chopped)-2 tbsp
- coconut - (dry )- 2 tbsp chopped
Heat ghee in a heavy bottom kadhai, add the suji and dry roast for few minutes, add the dry fruits and coconut and continue stirring and roasting till it takes on a light brownish-creamish colour and the rawness of the suji disappears(this requires total attention and dedication!), next add sugar and water,let cook for another 10 mins. till suji absorbs water and swells up and the mixture turns thick and creamy.Serve piping hot,yum!
Dig into a great-tasting weekend breakfast!
