No Ghee Moong Dal Burfi

Here I come with another healthy treat. Moong dal (yellow lentil) makes a delectable halwa, ladoo, and burfi. It tastes equally great as a humble curry, which we have been savoring since childhood.

However, traditionally it uses a good amount of ghee (clarified butter) to churn out moong dal halwa. But I tell you the authentic recipe of moong dal burfi/halwa is just perfect to tantalize your taste buds.

Today, it was my savitri Amavasya fast. In Odisha, this fast is observed by married women for the longevity of their husbands. Traditionally, Odiya women observe this fast by praying for the long life of their hubbies before Savitri Ma, who according to folklore had brought her husband Satyavan from the clutches of death. Odiya women soak moong dal a night before and have it with coconut and sugar on the fast day.


Though hubby is opposed to fasting, I do it for my mother in law, who is traditional to the core and wants her daughters in law to fast for her sons Motherly love, you know!


Shallow Fried Suji Kachori With Vermicelli Stuffing

Here's another healthy take on kachoris. After pan fried suji kachoris, it's time to get a step further and increase the amount of oats in the recipe. As a taste enhancer, I have added roasted bengal gram, and the idea works fine.

The stuffing in this suji kachori is of vermicelli, instead of the typical boiled potatoes. Does the experiment disappoint?

Na, not at all.

This is the reason I am sharing the oats kachori with you!

Oats seem to have become my go-to grain/cereal when it comes to doing food experiments. Why not! This healthiest, fiber-rich cereal offers umpteen health benefits, from being a rich source of dietary fiber to being an appetite-suppressant that immediately creates a feeling of full.

Other oats benefits include:

boost immunityreduce diabetes 2 riskcontrol appetiteimprove bowel movementlower bad cholesterolimprove insulin sensitivitycontrol blood pressure
Do you still need more oats benefits to make this healthy grain a part of your regular diet?

Anyway let&…
