Blogging Marathon# 28: Week 3/ Day 2
Theme: Sindhi Dishes
Dish: Sindhi Mung-a & Aloo Took
For day 2 of BM under ‘Sindhi dishes’ theme, I made 2 very delicious and simple dishes. Dal with moong beans and a dry curry with potato. I had a lot of Sindhi dishes bookmarked to try like this amazing Sindhi Saibhaji, Kokis and other veggies dishes. But my husband’s been travelling and I didn’t want to make these just for myself because even if I make just a little bit, there will be a lot leftover for me to eat for a whole week. So after browsing through Vaishali’s & Alka’s blogs, I ended up with 2 dishes that can be made with minimum ingredients and in small quantity, so I won’t have too much leftover.
First up is this simple dal made with whole moong beans. I love all beans, both for their health benefits and texture. When I saw the recipe on Vaishali’s blog, I thought how different can it be from the dishes I’m used to. But I was pleasantly surprised on how much flavor just finely chopped ginger and garlic imparts to a dish.
I had this spicy and tasty dal with some deep fried potato goodness, aloo took. I had the oil that I used to fry the pakwan and so decided to go ahead and indulge myself in this high calorie yumminess. Potatoes are double fried to golden, so they are crispy on the outside and creamy & airy on the inside. Recipe adapted from Alka’s recipe and Vaishali’s recipe.
