Food Idea- Aata Fara or Stuffed Dal Aata Pittha (stuffed lentils steamed wheat flour dumplings)

Advertisements

What you call Fara or Pittha, in my native place we call it Pittha and traditionally they are made from rice flour. But I like wheat flour one too.. especially I find them super easy as most of the time I keep some extra kneaded dough.

Mostly for the filling Chana dal is used but I have used moong daal for it.

  • wash and soak Moong dal for minimum of 30 min
  • in a pan take a spoon of oil splutter cumin seed, green chillies, crushed garlic and ginger

  • put the moong dal and roast it for 2-3 minutes

  • let it cool down completely and then grind it without using water just add salt as per taste.

  • add coriander leaves in the mixture

This is the filling I made. I have shared the recipe link you can follow the same.

Quick Chana Chat- Healthy Recipe

Advertisements

This healthy salad is my favourite these days. It’s simple to make/assemble and is without any oil and if you want without any sugar too

Soaked and boiled chana is roasted in pan so that water gets evaporated completely
In a bowl mix chana+ whisked curd+ chopped onion, Tomato, potato..you can add carrots, cucumbers etc etc+ roasted jeera powder (chat masala can be used)+ if you want it to be more tangy add a spoon of tamarind extract (I add a bit of jaggery for mild sweetness)+ green chillies and coriander leaves+ salt

This is very tasty and at same time very healthy too

Its very soothing aromatic tea. It’s not exactly a tea but herb mix. Fragrance is medium to strong but in pleasant way and have floral notes.

Caffeine level is zero so can be taken at any time. Best way is to take before sleeping, it’s soothing and relaxing

It’s a Sampler and can make around 4-7 cups depending upon your cup size and how strong you want the flavour

As per website their all tea Variant can be rebrewed so is this one too. I do rebrew it after a gap of around 1 hour and it taste good only

The sampler pack and the Saffron Kahwa Green tea

Texture

This green tea is ultimately luxury kind of royal feel. Saffron Kahwa Green tea is one of the best from my haul.

My Views-

It has strong spicy Fragrance as it contains cardamom, cloves, cinnamon, ginger, almonds, rose petals and saffron

Caffeine level is medium

It’s a Sampler and can make around 4-7 cups depending upon your cup size and how strong you want the flavour

As per website their all tea Variant can be rebrewed so is this one too. I do rebrew it after a gap of around 1 hour and it taste good only

As it contains crushed almond the brew look cloudy but as per website it’s totally normal and is safe for consumption.

Taste notes are warm, nutty and spicy.

This tea has detoxifying properties. It helps in digestion after a heavy meal. Rose petals and almonds have skin benefits too

Because of presence of rose petals, almonds, saffron and other spices it has a royal feel and touch. Very comforting and warm.

Cloudy brew

It’s brewing

Overall I really liked this tea and either will buy more samples or will go ahead with full size. Taste wise and benefit wise I find it worth investing.
