Entries for the Theme of the Week -Dried beans :)

Firt entry fot this week is from Trupti . She has sent me her delicious way of making Toor Dhokli. Such a neat idea. Just look at the pic above and you will rush for the recipe search here.
Here is her way to make this etirely new and healthy dish. In Trupti's own words...

1.5 cup Dried Tuver beans - soaked overnight, then cooked in the pressure cooker till soft (make sure to add some salt to it)
For the Dhokli:
1 cup wheat flour, 2 tbsp besan flour, turmeric, chili powder, Salt, a little bit of oil to bind, warm water.
3-4 cloves of Garlic- chopped, lemon juice, turmeric, chili powder and sugar to taste, jeera seeds and oil for the tempering.
Method:Make a stiff dough by adding all the ingredients to the flour. Make sure it isn't too soft. Set aside.After the tuver beans have been cooked thoroughly, heat some oil in a pan and add jeera seeds and the garlic. Add the cooked tuver to it along with the water that it was cooked in. Add some more water according to the kind of gravy you want, this shouldn't be too thick to begin with. Bring to a boil.Roll out the dough into a big circle and cut out small diamonds or squares. Drop these dhoklis one by one in the pan with the beans. Make sure to keep stirring to avoid the dhoklis from sticking to one another. Add the seasonings, taking care not to add too much salt. Cook until the dhoklis are soft...but not too soft. Serve hot with rice and yogurt or on its own. This is a delicious way to include some protein and fiber to your diet. Enjoy.
