Prawn Cucumber Curry
Today I will share another recipe with small size prawns (kucho chingri). There are different…
Here is the recipe:
1/3 cup Chana Dal
1/3 cup Urad Dal
1/3 cup Moong Dal
1/4 cup Tuor Dal
1/2 tsp Turmeric Powder
1/2 tsp Dhania (Coriander) Powder
1/2 tsp Garam Masala Powder
1/2 tsp Kashmiri Lal Mirch Powder
1 bay Leaf
1/2 tsp Raw Jeera (Cumin)
Pinch of Hing
Salt to taste
1 tsp Tamarind Paste
1 tsp Amchur (Optional)
1 tbsp Ghee
For Baati :
1 Cup Wheat Flour
1/2 cup Sooji
1/2 cup Besan
1/2 tsp salt or as per taste
2-3 tbsp ghee
Pinch of sugar(Optional)
Preparation of Dal:
Properly wash all kinds of dal & put in a pressure cooker with 1-2 green chillis & salt.
Cook for 5-6 whistle in low flame.(I cooked upto 8 whistle as I like it more mashed).
In a bowl, mix Turmeric, Dhania, Lal Mirch & Garam Masala Powder with 3 tbsp water.
Heat ghee in a pan & make a tempering with Cloves, bay Leaf, Raw Jeera.
Now add the water-spice mixture in that & stir properly until it leaves the oil.
Pour the boiled dal in that & cook for 5-6 min with Tamarind paste & a pinch of Hing.
Check for salt.
If you want you can add little amchoor powder & a pinch of sugar as they enhances the taste.
Preparation of Bati :
By the time you put all kinds of dal in the pressure cooker you can start preparing the Baatis.
Mix all the ingredients in ‘For Bati’ section & make a dough.
From that dough make around 5-6 round balls & flatten them a bit with the use of your palm.
Now boil water in a big vessel & add the batis.
In that, cook them for 15-20 min in high flame.
Drain the water & make them dry with the help of a soft cotton cloth.
Now grill them in an oven until they are properly done.
Generally, OTG takes a bit more time to cook, so I cooked them for 20 minute & after 10 minutes, turned the batis to cook the other side.
If you do not have an oven, after boiling, you can fry the batis in ghee until both the sides are done.
Serve them hot with Dal & Churma. (As I could not prepare Churma today I served Boondi instead, which was also a great combo!)
