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.
Lets check out what my fellow marathoners have cooked today for BM# 28.
Wow Pavani, awesome job with those moongs.they look very well made and so glad you liked them.ok the aaloo took need not be scored, infact the scored aaloos that we make are called cheera wara aaloo..will write to you in detail on that...but totally delicious meal..loved it.

Ur pics are very good & I love the way the aloo looks. I am now inspired to make this tomorrow
wonderful combo,looks super tempting...
Some dishes are so generic that you can't categorize them into particular cuisine I guess. Like the vermicelli kheer or this moong dish. Aloo dish caught my attention. Have to try it later. 🙂
Super combo!! Excellent pictures!
