DAHI PAPAD KI SUBZI

DAHI PAPAD KI SUBZI


The recipe for this simple yet interesting dish from Rajasthan called Dahi Papad Ki Subzi is adapted from the YouTube video by Master Chef Sanjeev Kapoor.

Notes:

  • This recipe calls for the use of  Bikaneri Moong Papad, but to try something different I have instead used Garlic Papad from Lijjat. 
  • Also, instead of ghee, I used the regular cooking oil.
  • Please use yogurt that is slightly sour. 
  • In this recipe, the besan (gram flour) helps to prevent the yogurt from curdling.
  • Boondi is also used in this dish. For those who don't know, it is a popular snack from Rajasthani made from fried besan or gram flour.

This dish turned out to be very tasty.



Ingredients:
  • Garlic Papad ( in place of Bikaneri Moong Papad), 2 to 4 
  • Yogurt, 1 and 1/2 cups
  • Gram Flour, (Besan) 3/4 tbsp
  • Turmeric Powder, 1/2 tsp
  • Salt, to taste
  • Red Chilli Powder, 3/4 tsp
  • Pure Ghee/Oil, 1 and 1/2 tbsp
  • Cumin Seeds, (Jeera) 1 tsp
  • Asafoetida, (Hing), 1/2 tsp
  • Dried Red Chillies, broken into bits, 2
  • Coriander Powder, 1 and 1/2 tsp
  • Ginger, chopped, 1/2 tsp
  • Boondi, 1/4 cup
  • Garam Masala Powder, 1/2 tsp
  • Fresh Coriander Leaves, chopped, 1 tbsp
Method:

Dry roast the papad over a gas flame on both sides, let it cool and keep aside.
Mix together yogurt, besan, turmeric powder, salt and red chilli powder by adding 2 cups of water in a large bowl. Take care that no lumps are formed and you get a smooth mixture.
In a non-stick pan, heat the oil and when it gets hot add the cumin seeds
When they sizzle add the hing, followed by the broken red chillies and coriander powder and saute for 1 minute
Next add the chopped ginger and saute for 1 more minute
Add the yogurt mixture and stir continuously till the mixture comes to a boil
Reduce the heat
Break the roasted papad into pieces and add them followed by the boondi
Mix well and cook over medium flame for 2-3 minutes
Add the garam masala powder and remove from the flame
Garnish with chopped fresh coriander leaves and serve hot
