Moong daal masala wada
Moong daal dahi wada chaat
Well after all the trial and bored with the moong dal wada and chaat... I decided to try something new... and see what I came up with? This tasty moong daal kofta... it turned out so good that I am surely gonna try it again.... leftovers or no leftovers...:P This poor picture was lying in my edit post for nearly 2 weeks (there are several more lying in the edit post for god knows how long.... craving for a write up and to be posted... there chance will come soon....) and I left it there as I felt my blog had got an over dose of moong daal... so now here I am back with the "leftover magic".
My leftover masala moong daal wada
The yummy kofta on its way to perfection and completion
To make this lovely kofta u need :
Moong Daal Wada : 7-8 balls (see previous moong daal masala wada post forthe recipe to make this.)
Yoghurt - 1 cup
Besan (gram flour ) - 2 tbsp
Red chilli powder - 1 tsp
Turmeric powder - 1 1/2 tsp (i love the yellow colour in my curry)
salt to taste
Sugar - 1 tsp
Garam Masala powder - 2 tsp
Oil - 1 tbsp
Bay leaves - 2
Ginger - 1 tsp finely chopped
Fresh coriander leaves for garnishing
soak the moong daal wadas in warm salted water for 2 minutes, squeeze and keep aside.
In a big bowl, whisk yoghurt and besan together. Heat oil in a pan an add the bay leave to it. Now add the chopped ginger and saute for a minute . Add the garam masala, turmeric powder and red chilli powder and cook in the oil for about 30 seconds on low flame..Add the yoghurt mixture along with salt and sugar. Mix well. If the curry looks too thick, add some water to it to get the consistency of dosa batter. Mix well and allow the curry to boil. Once the curry is boiling add the moong wadas to it. Simmer the curry for 2 more minutes and then remove from flame.Your moong dal kofta curry is ready.
What power this leftover has... it makes a person think so much out of the box....hmmm..So this way the leftover pesarattu batter story ended here, by being transformed into this gorgeous looking kofta curry. Isnt it how life is.... many a times we start with something and end up somewhere else. So true!! enjoy.
Garnish with fresh coriander leaves and serve hot with chapati ot rice.Enjoy!
