Pesara chiyali[moong idli fry]


Amma use to make this tasty and helthy,protein rich break fast when we are kids.And Iuse to run away from this ,I don't know why I hate to eat this .one at that time may be because it is a helthy food he he he...I know kids are like that only they don't want healthy food .In this I used whole moong dal which is very high in protien and also very less oil and the recipe is here..........

1 cup-whole green moong


1/2cup--split moong dal


idli batter--1/2cup


salt to taste


1inch piece-ginger chopped


1 medium onion--chopped


3-green chillis--chopped


a few curry leaves


1tebsp--oil


1/2 tesp-mustard seeds


1/2teasp-cumin seeds


1teasp-uard dal


a pinch--asafoetida


a pinch --turmeric powder


1 lemon juice[you can adjust lemon juice according to your taste]

METHOD:-

Soak dals in water for over night and next morning grind dals in to a coarse paste

Add salt to taste and idli batter mix well and pour the mixture in to idli moulds and cook like idlis in steem for 8-10 mins remove from fire and let it cool

Heat oil in a kadai add mustard seeds,cumin seeds,urad dal,curry leaves,asafoetida then add chopped onion ,chopped green chillis fry till onion become soft

In the mean while cut idlis in to bite size pieces and add idli pieces to onions add turmeric powder mix well and fry for just few sec.

now add lemon juice mix well and remove from fire and serve hot

If required you can sprinkle a little salt and idli podi[pappula podi] on it

If you don't have idli batter no problem you can make with dals but idli batter gives a smooth texture

And if you want you can sprinkle grated coconut
