Here is yet another comfort food that can be made in a matter of minutes in a pressure cooker. Such one pot meals are always great when cooking for one. The husband has lunch at office and I need to find some inspiration to cook lunch for me. I tend to stay with one pot meals or easy fix lunches like sandwiches and soups. This is one such lunch I made for myself. I have used the split green moong dal for this recipe. This can be substituted with the yellow split moong dal or the whole green moong dal as well. if using whole green moong dal, make sure to soak it for an hour in advance before cooking it with the rice. Ingredients Rice - 1 cup ( I used sona masoori rice) Split green moong dal - 1/2 cup Tomato - 1/2 roughly chopped Salt to taste For the tempering Oil/ghee - 1 spoon Jeera/Cumin seeds - 1 teaspoon Garlic - 1 clove finely chopped Ginger - 1/2 inch - finely chopped Green chilly - 1 Curry leaves - 1 sprig Instructions Wash the rice and dal with water and drain the water. In a pressure cooker combine the rice, dal, tomato and salt and add about 3 to 3.5 cups of water. Pressure cook until you get 5 to 6 whistles. Once the pressure gets released, mash the rice and dal well with a potato masher or a wooden ladle. It should be very mushy. In a saucepan, do the tempering with the ghee, jeera, garlic, ginger, green chillies and curry leaves and pour it over the cooked rice and dal. Mix and serve it with pickle and papads. Ultimate comfort food ready in minutes! This is my entry for day 4 in the 7 day blogging marathon! Check out the Blogging marathon page for the other Blogging Marathoners doing BM#12.

  • 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
