Mooli Bhajja My Style

mooli sabzi
A few days back, I came across a recipe from South India, which was different from what we are used to relishing. I was yearning to try my hands at it, but we hardly get banana stem/flower here in north. So I had to keep waiting. Then today, I decided to experiment with mooli (raddish). The experiment is a hit with me and hubby.

I must tell you my hubby does not eat mooli, nor does he like it. So I did not tell him before starting with this experiment. When I served him lunch today, he immediately loved the new dish. I was on cloud nine for sure!

So let's get back to the recipe.

Ingredients
1 mooli (grated)
1/4 cup- bengal gram dal
2 tbsp- oat meal (powder)
2 tbsp- fresh coconut powder
ginger piece
salt, jeera, mustard seeds
1 green chilly or more
oil- 1/2 tsp
1 spring onion
red chilly powder

Procedure
mooli bhajja


  1. Wash Bengal gram dal and put it into the grinder along with ginger, green chilly, and coconut.
  2. Churn it until the dal is ground and everything is blended with each other.
  3. Add salt and mix well.
  4. Next we need to steam this mixture. Better to steam in idli stand.
  5. Meanwhile, grate mooli and chop spring onion.
  6. When the mixture is steamed, take it out and let it cool. Then break it down - just like upma.
  7. Take a pan. Add oil.
  8. Next add mustard seeds and jeera. Let them splutter. Add spring onion. Stir fry little.
  9. Now add mooli along with the steamed mixture.
  10. Check salt. Sprinkle little red chilly powder.
  11. Cook & cover for 5 minutes.
  12. Done! Enjoy this delectable mooli bhajja and your family will never again hate mooli. This is the best way to relish this healthy vegetable -which is usually eaten as salad or stuffed in paranthas.

Sugarless Besan Ladoo : A Healthy Chickpea Gluten Free Recipe

besan ladoo Is chickpea gluten free? This is one of the most common question asked by few besan lovers. I have always been fond of besan (gram flour) ladoos. But hubby doesn't find them interesting enough to relish them. Yes, I am not joking. He loves boondi ladoos. So I have never tried making besan ladoos before. This Diwali, I wanted to give my favorite ladoos a try. But yes, the health freak in me questioned whether I was really prepared to give in my health goals to relish my favorite besan ladoos. Then the thought of giving a twist to these ladoos struck my imagination. The rest is history - the besan ladoos use just 1 tbsp of ghee (clarified butter) with no SUGAR.
