Khatti Dal

Khatti dal is the most common side dish in hyderabad and it is made with lentils. This is made with toor dal or masoor dal, mostly it is in running consistency. Khatti dal means tangy lentils. I prefer eating khatti dal with roti or fulkas. Recipe is simple and quick to make. Many prefer this khatti dal with rice and with any non-veg fry. Here is the recipe.


Toor dal/Masoor dal 1 cup
Onion 1 chopped
Tomato chopped
Green chillies 4
Turmeric powder a pinch
Tamarind a small piece

Pressure cook all the above ingredients. The dal has to be soft and mash the dal.

For seasoning :-
Rai/mustard seeds 1/4 tsp
Zeera/cumin seeds 1/4 tsp
Curry leaves few

Season the dal with the above ingredients and garnish with coriander.

Dates Ladoo / khajoor laddu

Year is going to end and I was not much active here. I revived by other blog with 30 days posting without a break.
These dates laddu I made it for Diwali. I thought of making something healthy without extra carbos. So these laddus are sugar free as dates itself are sweet.

Dates 2 cups shredded
walnuts 1/2 cup
cashews 1/2 cup
Almonds 1/2 cup
Pista unsalted 1/2 cup
Dry coconut powder 3 tbsp
Ghee 3 tbsp
How to make them ?
Take all the nut in a grinder and crush them. Here we are not making fine powder but coarsley grinding them.
Take a pan. Add ghee.
when ghee melts add dates.
Saute for a while, dates starts sticking to each other.
Turn off the flame. Add nuts.
Take little ghee on palms and make round balls.
In a plate take dry coconut powder and roll the ladoos in it.
Isn't it very simple. The time taken to eat is less than time taken to make them.😜😜😜
