Bhindi Fry

At Dusk, little over two months ago when I was sitting beside the window of my balcony with a cup of tea,while I was about to take my next sip heard a brief shout of a familiar vegetable by a street vendor at the far end of the road... A big overdose of my ego convinced me that it was Okra or Ladies Finger  which I heard.... I rambled across the street to grab the Vegetable by  Making an guesstimate of all the delicious recipes I could prepare out of it... I could not trace the man I was searching for and came home with a heavy heart and saw my Husband standing at the door with a  carry bag...My joy knew no bounds when I saw Okra's peeking through the bag and smiling at me....  

Among many relishing recipes I decided to prepare 'Bhindi fry' or 'Okra fry'...

Okra is probably one of the widely loved vegetable,along with many nutritional benefits it also bestows many medicinal values...

Bhindi Fry (Okra Fry)is an easy to make tasty dish.The crispiness and the perfect seasoning makes it as one of the Idyllic Side dishes...

4)Pinch of Asafoetida/Hing

6)1 tsp Garam masala
7)2 to 3 Tbsp vegetable oil or any cooking oil
8)salt as per the taste

Method:

2)Mix all the dry ingredients and add 2 to 3 spoons of water make a thick paste
3)Stuff all the okra's with this masala paste 
4)Keep small frying pan on heat and add oil.

Rajma Curry

A few days ago a  Strange Craving Randomly popped in to my head and when ever this happens I generally wait before Plunging in to the Kitchen  giving enough time for the  Hankering  to Wane Off.


But this time the desire didn't shrink instead It kept pecking  me in the middle of the night and that is when I decided to give this recipe a shot..Though this recipe is one of the recurring recipes on my dining table, I feel I have not tailored this recipe to the perfection and hence kept thinking about Improvising to get an Impeccable result..


This time I could say I am almost successful in hitting the Bulls-Eye and hence decided to save the image and blog about it... 


Rajma Curry:
This Delicious healthy side dish  is a very popular north Indian dish  liked  not only in North   but allured all over the India as well..  
The Kidney Bean with its dark red skin is named for its visual resemblance to a Kidney...
 The preparation includes overnight soaking of the beans followed by the broiling of the beans and later mixing with whole spices.... 


Ingredients:
1)2 small cups Rajma/Red kidney bean soaked over night
2)1 large onion chopped finely
3)1 large tomato chopped finely
4)1 Tbsp ginger garlic paste
5)2 tsp red chilly powder
6)1 Tbsp coriander cumin powder
7)Kasuri methi(app 2 tsp)
8)1 tsp Haldi/Turmeric
9)1 Tbsp Garam masala
10)2 Tbsp fresh cream (optional)
11)2 Tbsp vegetable oil
12)1 tsp Cumin/Jeera
13) Coriander/cilantro for garnish
14)Salt and sugar according to the taste


Method:
1)Pressure cook Red kidney bean by adding a tsp of salt and few drops of oil.(min 4to 5 whistles)save the excess water..
2)take vegetable oil in a kadai,add cumin seeds,wait until it splutters,then add ginger garlic paste,onion and saute until it turns golden brown color(Add a pinch of salt)
3)add finely chopped tomato,haldi,the whole spice powder(garam masala,red chilly powder,coriander cumin powder) fry until the tomato becomes soft.
4)add cooked Rajma along with the water,add Kasuri methi(rub b/w the palms)salt,sugar and some more water if required.Cover the lid and allow it to cook for about 15 minutes until the Rajma bean cooks and soaks up all the flavor.
5)Finely add fresh cream,coriander leaves and cut the flame to off.








Rajma Bean curry is ready,Serve with hot Basumathi rice , parata ' or with roti's...


Note:
1)The preparation of the Rajma curry varies from region to region and from kitchen to kitchen ,Rajma bean tastes well if cooked with lots of whole spices..
2)Rajma should be soaked well and cooked well before consuming.. soaking for an overnight makes the bean softer and also helps in absorbing the flavor....
3)Adding little salt and oil while pressure cooking  avoids Rajma bean getting over cooked.   
4)Rajma curry makes a great combo with Jeera-Rice,plain Basumathi rice with pure Ghee and also with all kinds of Roti's..

Green Gram (Moong Bean)Curry

Some Dishes are Savored for its Uniqueness,few others are Favored for its Simplicity , Some more are Allured for its Flavorsome Touch,few Handful Dishes are Treasured for its Nutriment,Quite others  for its Lemony kick and many more for its Authenticity..
 Considering the above verdict  I just a gave a try to this Green Gram Curry and found myself Hankering for it over and Over again..When  the flavors come together they embrace all the above mentioned aspects to make it a Healthy and a Munch-able Choice..


In Green Gram Curry the main Flavor contribution is  by soaked Green Gram and the right amount of seasoning makes it rich and nutritious... 


Ingredients:
1)1 Cup whole Green gram/Moong Bean(Soaked over night)
2)1 onion finely chopped
3)1 tomato finely chopped
4)Cilantro/Coriander for garnishing
5)1 tsp mango powder
6)2 tsp garam masala or Curry masala
7)1 tsp Red Chilly Powder
8)1 tsp Turmeric/Haldi
9)Pinch of Hing
10)2 tsp sugar
11)1 Tbsp Cumin-Coriander Powder(Dry Roasted Powder)
12)Salt according to the taste
13)1 tsp freshly grated garlic


For Tadka:
1)2 Tbsp  vegetable Oil
2)1 tsp mustard seeds
3)1 tsp Jeera/cumin seeds


Method:
1)Pressure cook the soaked Green gram until it gets crumbled( by adding few drops of oil and salt)
2)Take oil in a kadai/wok,add mustard seeds and Cumin seeds
3)When the spluttering starts add finely chopped onion fry  until it turns golden brown in color(by adding a  pinch of salt) 
4)Add finely chopped tomato,garlic, Asafoetida/Hing,Haldi/Turmeric and fry until the water from the tomato dries out
5)Add the Masalas( cumin-coriander powder,mango powder,garam masala,red chilly powder)
and fry for a minute.
6)Add the cooked Green gram, sugar,salt  and some water to meet the required consistency
7)Cover the lid for about 2 to 3 minute until the green gram absorbs all the flavors..
8)Switch off the flame and Garnish with cilantro before serving.. 






Tip:
1)Generally this dish demands Heavy Cream,Butter or some fat to enhance the taste,but due to the health's point of view I excluded that..Non-Fat sour cream or less fat milk can do the trick..
2)Green Gram Curry makes a great side dish for Chapathi and Naan's.
3)Adding little salt and oil while pressure cooking the green gram helps in retaining the rigid texture..
