Easy Whole Wheat Coconut Cookies Recipe

Of course, you have savored branded coconut cookies innumerable times in your lifetime. It won't be wrong to say that you have also enjoyed the bakery coconut biscuits as well. But there is no comparison to home food. If you can bake cookies with healthy ingredients, there is no match to it.

Earlier, I shared a wheat coconut cookie recipe using ghee. This time I have blended ghee and oil for a healthier twist. The result is not disappointing; rather, I simply love these cookies more than ever.

Carrot, Capsicum Dal

Dals are a common accompaniment to rice or rotis (Indian flat bread). Since childhood, we have been savoring these pulses in one form alone. Yes, in Punjab, dals are usually made as plain curries. But after getting married in an Odiya family, I have realized that dals make a delectable serving when blended with vegetables of your choice - yes, we can get that wholesome meal kinda feeling!

I have tried different vegetables and blended them with arhar and chana dals but ever experimented with capsicum. This time I have gone ahead and used capsicum in moong dal along with carrot, after I came across a similar recipe in Yummy Tummy blog. My experiment was a success. Happy me!

Let's get back to the recipe!



Ingredients
1/2 cup yellow moong dal
2 carrots
1 capsicum
1 Garlic pod (10-15 garlic cloves)
1 dry red chilly, green chilly
1/4 tsp fenugreek seeds (methi dana)
hing
salt, haldi
coriander leaves, curry leaves (kadipatta)
1 tbsp- oil
1 tomato
1 1/2- 2 cups water
