I am trying and tasting dal khichdi for the first time. When ever someone says I had dal khichdi for lunch, I will be so so very much tempted to taste. I wanted to try for long time but I had no idea for the recipe. I browsed online too sometime back, but everything had ginger garlic paste, whole garam masalas, which I was imagining myself how it would be if we add all these things to south Indian pongal. But Sangeeta told me a recipe recently and which was very simple and just perfect to suit my taste. I wanted to try for few days but today was the perfect day to try. I think this is a perfect one pot meal for a rainy, lazy day, you can make and have it hot. Kids would love with ghee and its loaded with protien, carbs with added veggies to make you feel full and energized. I will make this often for myself here after. Dal khichdi recipe Recipe Cuisine: Indian  |  Recipe Category: Lunch Prep Time: 30 mins    |  Cook time: 20 mins    |  Serves: 4 Ingredients Rice  1/2 cup  Moong dal  1/2 cup minus 1 tblsp  Water  4 &1/2 cups  Mixed vegetables, chopped  3/4 cup  Turmeric  1/4 tsp  Salt  As needed    To temper Oil/ ghee 2 tblsp Jeera 2 tsp Finely chopped ginger 2 tsp Green chilli 2 Curry leaves 1 sprig Tomato 2 Coriander leaves, chopped 3 tblsp Red chilli powder 1 tsp Garam masala 1/2 tsp   Method Wash and soak rice and dal together for half hour and pressure cook with turmeric, vegetables and 1/2 the salt. Bring everything to boil and close the lid, put the pressure valve after steam comes. Pressure cook for 3 whistles. Make sure you use a big pressure cooker. I used my pot shaped cooker. After first whistle, put the flame to medium. Finely chop tomato, slit green chillies. Heat a kadai and temper with jeera, ginger, green chilli, curry leaves and give it a stir. Add tomatoes, add remaining salt, red chilli powder, coriander leaves and garam masala.  Fry until mushy and oil separates. By now the rice, dal, veggies will be done. Open the cooker and  mash well. Add the tomato with other masalas we fried, to it and mix well. Notes I used 5 beans, 1 small carrot and 1/2 cup green peas. You can add potato too. You can skip garam masala too. Keep 1/2 cup hot water ready, if the kichdi is too dry, you can add it and mix. Gives so much volume, so make sure you add salt accordingly. Soaking is really important. You can pressure cook and while its getting cooked, chop the other ingredients needed. Perfect for a rainy cold day, serve always hot. Tastes great as such, but you can have it with curd, pickle or even dahi kadhi. Technorati Tags: dal khichdi recipe,moong dal khichdi,dal khichdi without onion,garlic,no onion no garlic dal khichdi

  • The Saffron Vanilla Snickerdoodle Cookies sold at Blue Bottle Coffee are a favorite of mine. I like to sit in the sun on the beautiful stone slab benches across from the Blue Bottle Coffee kiosk in Hayes Valley, San Francisco with a macchiato a snickerdoodle to share. This, the first Blue Bottle Coffee location, is just a short walk from my house in an alleyway. A not-so-secret spot, slightly off the main strip – source of excellent coffee and cookies! I also love to have lazy breakfasts beneath the tall ceilings, light streaking through the massive windows, in their cafe at Mint Plaza. I’ve known there was a Blue Bottle Coffee book in the works, and each time I go, I find myself uttering the same nine words, usually with my mouth full – I really hope this recipe is in the book. In addition to their coffee, which I’m more than happy to brave a line for, I have a list of go-to favorites from their beautifully concise and inspired menu. My hope was that all would be in the book: these Saffron-Vanilla Snickerdoodles, the Pickled Fennel Egg Salad, the Sesame Absinthe Cigars, and Catalan Eggs with Braised Greens. Check, check, check, and check! Every one is in the book. And like all things Blue Bottle, this is worth the wait. The Best Snickerdoodle Cookies The book will be released October 9th (I originally posted this in 2012), but I’ve been hassling Ten Speed to get me an early copy for months. In part because I wanted to bump up my coffee know-how, but (no surprise) I was particularly excited about the recipes – the Saffron Vanilla Snickerdoodle Cookies were first up. In contrast to traditional snickerdoodles, Caitlin describes them as having “an unusual butterscotch flavor from the combination of saffron, brown sugar and vanilla.” If you love snickerdoodles, please try these! Now, I know these cookies well, and this recipe delivered a version that is a dead-ringer of the original. The same as the ones I would buy at the kiosk – buckle in the middle, kiss of saffron, a thin golden crust that gives way to a fudge-textured center. Thank you. Arguably the best snickerdoodle cookies I’ve ever had. I made a double batch for a family trip to Lake Tahoe last week – baking half for the drive there, freezing the remaining pre-scooped dough to bake at the cabin. Everyone loved them. I hope you like these as much as I do, make a double batch and freeze half of the pre-scooped dough for later baking. And be sure to measure the saffron carefully -it’s easy to go too light/heavy. xo -h Continue reading Saffron Vanilla Snickerdoodle Cookies on 101 Cookbooks
