Patoli


I don’t know what exactly the meaning and how the name evolved. When we don’t have time to get vegetables and available vegetables at home are not sufficient for the members  we can prepare this. This can be made with bengal gram and also green gram. The main ingredients are Bengal gram and that’s all. The quantities specified in this recipe are for 10 people.

Ingredients:

Bengal gram-1cup
Red chillies-8 or 10
Salt-to taste
Oil-2tbsp
Mustard seeds-1tsp
Cumin seeds-1tsp
Black gram-1tsp
Red chillies-3(split)
Curry leaves-fistful of
Asafoetida-a pinch
Turmeric Powder-a pinch

Preparation:

Soak Bengal gram for one hour.
Add red chillies and grind it to make a fine paste.
But be cautious about adding water while grinding, do not add more water. The paste should be in thick consistency.
Pressure cook it for three whistles.
Allow this to cool and mash it with hands and make it a powder.

Procedure:
Heat oil in a wok and add mustard seeds, cumin seeds, red chillies and black gram.
When they start splutter add curry leaves, asafoetida and turmeric powder. 
If we are interested we can add onions and garlic also to it and fry them till they turn soft.
Now add the powdered Bengal gram. Stir continuously till it turns light brown colour. 
Add salt and fry again. Serve it with curd chillies and asafoetida fried oil.  It can be taken with rice or as it is.
