Ragi And Dill Nippattu Recipe

Crunchy Ragi and Dill Nippattu are a great twist to the classic rice nippattu. They have a beautiful cocoa hue and the aroma of chilies, peanuts, sesame and sabsige/dill leaves. Ragi is gluten free and so it is mixed with rice flour to help make the nippattu with ease.

Ragi is a super healthy millet. It is rich in calcium, helps in weight loss, has a high fiber content, battles anemia, reduces blood cholesterol and also regulates blood sugar levels. Because of its low glycemic index, it helps reduce food cravings and slows down absorption of starch, thus helps in regulating the blood sugar for diabetic.

Serve Ragi And Dill Nippattu with hot Masala Chai during your tea time break.

Rawalpindi Style Chole Recipe

Rawal Pindi Style Chole is a dish made with chick peas which belongs to the Rawalpindi region in Pakistan. Pind means village and Rawal is a region in Pakistan, hence the name is Rawalpindi Chole. Pindi chole is made with white chick peas or kabuli chana, onion, tomato, ginger garlic paste and lots of spices. To enhance the colour, we should add a black tea bag while pressure cooking the chana.

The addition of anardana and other spices like coriander seeds, chili powder, dry mango, turmeric powder and cumin makes this dish different from the normal chole and gives a spicy and tangy taste to the curry. This dish is normally served as a dry curry. But if you need gravy, you can add a little water to it. You can serve this dish with finely chopped raw onion and phulkas. Use it as a filling in wraps or sandwiches and pack in your kid’s lunch box.
