Days have a tendency to simply disappear and this week was no doubt was the fastest! With December soon coming to closer, we have hectic work at the office with deadlines looming over us. The funny part is for some departments it's a lean time and we decided to have fun events at the office. Part of the fun event was me cooking for a day.
Seeing the Snack mela going on, my colleagues decided we would have a snack mela at offie. Will write about it in leisure, though the result being I have been busy with that and couldn't do much in terms for this BM.
Today is the last day in the BM's first week and I enjoyed doing it with the lunch box dishes which really helps me plan for a variety in my box.
Chow Chow / Bengalore Vankaya - 1 medium
Moong Dal - 3/4 cup
Cumin Seeds - 1 tsp
Onions - 2 tbsp
Mustard Seeds - 1/4 tsp
Curry leaves few
Salt to taste
Turmeric powder a pinch
Green Chilies - 2 long
Oil - 1 tsp
How to make Bengaluru Vankaya Pappu
Wash and peel the outer skin on chow chow. Chop into 1 inch cubes. Microwave in just enough water for 10 mins.
Wash and microwave the moong dal for 10 mins. Both chow chow and moong dal can be microwave together.
Heat a pan with oil, season with cumin seeds, mustard and curry leaves. Saute with onions and chopped green chilies. When the onions turn colour, add the chow chow and moong dal. To get little thickness to the dal, add 1/2 water and salt. Bring to boil and simmer for 5 mins.
Serve with rotis
