The other day, was thinking of what to cook, and the sprouts came handy. The innovation that came to my mind was the addition of lasun chutney to the curry.The result was a fabulous curry bursting with flavor and minimal ingredients. The Nutty Yogi Rajasthani Lehsun Chutneyis a keeper. Use it as a sidedish for rotis/ theplas/paranthas and you are hooked.
The chutney is spicy and the flavors too good with garlic being the hero. Add a little more for spicier version Go ahead and try this and I am sure you won’t regret. A meal in itself, if you wish to cut the carbs and the rotis. Just Indulge.
Here goes the recipe:
Moong Dal: Sprouted or otherwise ( I used Sprouted)
Onions: 1 chopped ( I skipped since I was running out of it)
Tomatoes: 1-2 medium sized chopped finely.
Turmeric Powder: 1 tsp
Red Chilli powder: 1 tsp
Nutty Yogi Rajasthani Lehsun Chutney: 2 tsp
Coriander leaves: a handful
Salt to taste
Jaggery: 1 tbsp
Oil: 1 tbsp
Mustard Seeds: 1 tsp
Hing: a pinch
Take a small pressure cooker and add oil+ rai and hing. Allow to crackle.
Add the chopped onions and fry till golden brown. Add the chopped tomatoes cook till done.
Add the sprouts and the spices. Check for salt. Add 2-2 ½ cups of water and jaggery.
Pressure cook for 2-3 whistles.
Serve hot with Rotis/ Rice Khicadi or even Pav/ Bread with sev topped . J

PS: I got the product for review but the recipe was modified with tastes suiting my taste buds and the opinions shared here are mine.
The other day we tried Tea Monk Global, brand. I tried the green tea variant for obvious reasons 😛 These days; thanks to health awareness lots of brands are entering the green tea market. Customers now are spoilt for choices as there are lots of options to choose from like Tulsi, Cinnamon, Ginger ,Lemon,Oolong to name a few.
The other day tried and I must say it was just yummy. J Loved the sour flavor. Much healthier than the regular besan one. Also filling and the quantity enough for a family of 3. Also the flax seeds give a nice crunch.
This ready to eat packs are a boon when you get up blank in the morning but still want to fix a healthy breakfast, when you run out of batter and bored of making upma. I loved this Dhokla and since kiddo too loved this it’s going to be a regular at home.
Tasted the Pillsbury Cookie cake. The vanilla one is salty; I found the chocolate one laced with Choco chips better. It’s soft, chewy and decently sweet; as in somewhere between cookie and brownie. Comes in single serving packs.
Got to hear about this new version of crispy but not fried or baked and I was very curious to try that. Got the products from DesiVdesi a food brand that is using natural techniques in keeping the snacks retain the nutrition. You can know more about them here
Tried their Chikoo Chips which are crispy, without any preservatives or added color. . Not very sweet which means no much sugar added. Makes a good option for kids who are fussy eaters. Maybe this version would tempt them to try this fruit.
After trying the Mumbaiya flavor we tried the Chennai style one. I just added tadka to it.Now for me it was a fusion like Sāmbhar rice meeting noodles. The noodles tasted like Sāmbhar rice with curry leaves and tamarind extract. Maybe we can co relate the flavors but I didn’t find them very interesting.
