Dahiwale Aloo ki Sabzi

Dahiwale aloo is nothing but potatoes in yogurt gravy.  This  is a very creamy and flavorful gravy.  Its quick easy and tastes delicious.
Ingredients
For the  Aloo 

10 - 12    Peeled Baby Potatoes
1/2 
Teaspoon Cumin seeds
1/2 Teaspoon Mustard seeds
1/2 Teaspoon Onion seeds 
1/2 Teaspoon Fennel seeds
1/4 Teaspoon Asafoetida
2 Bay leaves
3 Cloves
1 Stick Cinnamon
A Sprig Curry leaves
1 Green Chilly - slit
2 Teaspoon Red chilly powder
1 1/2 Teaspoons Coriander Cumin powder
1/4 
Teaspoon Turmeric powder
1 Cup Yogurt - whisked
2 Tablespoons Ghee
Salt to taste
For The Garnish

2 to 3 Tablespoons Coriander leaves - chopped
Method 

Heat the ghee in a kadai/pan,  add the cumin seeds, mustard seeds, onion seeds, fennel seeds and asafoetida. When the seeds crackle, add the bay leaves, cloves, cinnamon, curry leaves and green chilli and sauté for a few seconds.
Add the potatoes, chilli powder, coriander-cumin powder, turmeric powder, salt and sauté till the masala coats the potatoes evenly. 

Add ½ cup of water and bring to a boil.
Add the curds and bring to a boil while stirring continuously so that the gravy does not split.
Garnish with the coriander. Serve hot as a side dish or have as a main course meal with rotis, naan or paratha.
My Notes


As this gravy cools, potato will absorb some of it, so serve hot. If serving later then add a little more water and make a thin gravy. By the time you reheat/serve, you will still have some gravy left.

Potato Hearts#Foodieextravaganza

Today is  event day for Foodie Extravaganza  our  Host is Anne Lawton. Since February 8th is National Potato lovers day  she asked us to share our favorite  recipe. Thank you Anne for hosting this month's event.

These potato hearts are pan fried. Made these as starter for girls who came home to practice for the Mehendi dance. 

Ingredients 
6 Large Potatoes
1/4 Cup Olive oil
1 Teaspoon Salt
1 Teaspoon freshly ground pepper
1 Teaspoon Mixed Herbs
½ Teaspoon Paprika powder
Juice of Half a Lemon

Method

Fill a pot with about 2 liters of water, add a tablespoon salt, bring to boil, then reduce heat to gentle simmer.
In the meantime peel potatoes, slice them, into 1/4 inch thick slices, then take a small metal cookie cutter and cut into hearts,  and keep aside. 
Cut out as many hearts as you can. 
Cook potatoes in simmering water for just 2 minutes, drain potatoes and let them cool slightly  and  coat them in oil.
Combine all the ingredients for the marinade, coat the potatoes, let it sit for 10 minutes.

Then heat a non stick pan  and pan fry them till golden on both sides. 
Serve hot.  These are really yum and  do not require any dipping sauce.  Potato Hearts will vanish as they are being served, be sure of that.

1½ Cup Milk

2 Tablespoons Honey
Handful chopped nuts and fruits (Dates, Almonds,Cashew nuts, Walnuts and Raisins)

then add the oats and give it a quick stir,
Now add the honey and  chia seeds mix in well, keep stirring for 3 - 4 minutes  or till the porridge thickens a little.
Keep stirring in so that it is not burnt at the bottom.
When the oats is  cooked, turn off flame and transfer the contents to a serving bowl,

The porridge will further thicken as it starts to cool , so adjust your water and milk quantities accordingly.
Here is the goodness of fruits
Sprinkle all the chopped nuts and fruits on top.

Oats & Split Green Moong Chillas/Pancakes#Foodieextravaganza

A Happy and Prosperous New Year to all my friends.
The month of December was only parties, weddings etc..
enjoyed food and drinks to the hilt. Now it's  time to start a healthy life style, hope I can maintain this. 

Starting 2019 with a healthy breakfast dish for Foodie Extravaganza. Since the theme for this month is Oatmeal, our host is Wendy Klik . Made these fabulous, healthy pancakes that are high in protein, low in calories and filling.
.
Ingredients

1 Cup Split Green Moong Dal
1 Cup Oats
3 Big Cloves Garlic
2 Green Chillies
½ Teaspoon Grated Ginger
1/3 Cup Rice Flour - * see notes
Salt to taste
Water as required

For garnishing

Grated Cheese or Cottage Cheese - optional
Chutney or Sauce for Serving
Method 

Wash and soak the split moong dal overnight or for at least 4 hours. 
Drain the water and then grind it with rest of the ingredients using water just necessary to make a coarse paste. 
This batter should be thicker than a pancake batter.
 Heat a pancake pan and brush it with oil, take a ladle full of batter spread it into a thin chilla / pancake. Drizzle little oil on it. 
When it cooks it one side then flip it and cook for a minute ( this is optional). 
Fold it into a triangle and serve with chutney or sauce . Garnish with grated cheese.
These were fabulous, healthy and are high in protein.
My Notes
If you do not have rice flour at hand then soak 2 tablespoons heaped of rice grains along with the dal.
Do not brush too much of oil on to pan or else you will not be able to spread the batter.
