What to Cook Today?

What to Cook Today? This is a question which has to be faced by every women daily. Specially in summer season when everyone is asking for light food and avoid heavy stuff like meat and eggs. There is a limited list of vegetables available. When you try to make some different dish, it requires numbers of ingredients. Some are not even easily available in local markets.  This is such difficult question that a website named Myfridgefood have been built to let them decide. Aah!! could we have website to make food as well?
Today, I am sharing two simple recipes using basic ingredients like floor, rice and lentils etc. That can be prepared with very lesser effort and ingredients, but it tastes so yummy. Must try if you looking to make something new with routine grocery.

1. Bread Made of Rice:

I am not going to tell you the recipe of Bread made of rice flour. Its bread made of rice grain. If you have plain boil rice as left over meal, do not waste it instead make a tasty snack out of it. All you need is:

  • Plain Boil Rice
  • Onion
  • Green/ Red Chilies
  • Salt
  • Wheat Flour
  • Cooking Oil
Take a bowl of plain boiled rice, Chop some onion and green chilies finely into it . Add chopped onion in Rice Bowl. Put some salt as per taste. You can used Grind red chilies if you love spices. Try to make a dough of it. Sprinkle Wheat Flour in to it, so that dough can be made easily. Put some cooking oil in pan, no more than 2 teaspoon. Spread  the rice dough over pan and cover it. Let it cook until golden brown color appear. Similarly fry the other side. Bread made of Rice is ready to serve. You may have it with chutni at lunch or you may enjoy it as a snack with tea. A crispy fried rice bread is too appetizing to have with a cup of tea, lemon tea or green tea. It will take just few minutes to make it ready. Also you can save leftover meal by going into waste. 

2. Daal Pithi

Many of you have watched the KNORR cube advertisement which add the taste of chicken in Daal, so that Kids enjoy eating it. I am sharing you a recipe that will make your Daal more appetizing than that of Knorr cubes. Daal is simple you made using yellow and orange lentils of  Moong and Masoor. Pithi is cute dumpling made of wheat flour. Instead of making Daal Roti, try this recipe. Ingredients are:
  • Orange Lentil (Daal Masoor)
  • Yellow Lentil (Daal Moong)
  • Tumeric Powder
  • Red Chillies
  • Salt
  • Wheat Flour
  • Cumin
  • Oil
Make a Daal of Moong Masoor as you do in routine. Make a Roti with Wheat Flour but do not cook it. Make square pieces of approximately 2"x2" with it.  Join the diagonal corners of square piece and make a dumpling as shown in figure. You may involve your kids in the activity of making dumpling, they will definitely love to do it. Add dumpling in Daal and let it cook for half an hour. Add fried cumin over it for taste. Daal Pithi is ready. You can serve it with green chutney and achaar. 

Well, the dish is not something new. But many of us have forgotten the traditional taste in this age of fast foods which is actually not fast but junk. If you know such traditional dishes, please share them here and bring the healthy food tradition back. Trust me, you will forgot your pasta after having this homemade pasta. You may add tarmarind or tomato as per your taste.
