Chickpea Cilantro Patoli


(Click image for enlarged view)

One day my hubby was raving about hummus and I was amused that he is so excited about such a simple arabic dish made with chickpeas...little did he know I would make a indian version too....

Patoli is a pure andhra recipe, there are many variation of patoli,the popular version is a dry version which my mom used to make with chickpea flour and my MIL used to make with channa dal.But I like it soft .

This is my version for this, to make patoli I used chickpeas and cilantro to give it a unique flavor. And in whatever way you plan to use as a curry,spread or dip I am sure you will enjoy it.

Cooking Time: 30 min
Serves: 2

Ingredients:
  • 1 cup chickpea(after soaking overnight)- also known as garbanzo beans
  • 1/2 cup chopped bell pepper
  • 2 tbsp chopped onions
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
  • 1 tsp chopped garlic
  • 1/4 tsp turmeric powder
  • 2 green chillies (sliced)
  • 1/2 tsp (mixture of urad dal,cummin seeds,mustard seeds)
  • pinch of hing(asafetida)
  • 1 spring curry leaves
  • 1 tbsp oil
  • salt to taste
Cooking Procedure

Boil the chickpeas in pressure cooker with 1:2 ratio with water with one whistle and 5 min waiting.After it cools grind it into a smooth soft paste with the water.

Heat oil in a pan,add the mixture of urad dal(black gram),mustard seeds,cummin seeds, once mustard seed splutter,add green chillis,chopped onions,curry leaves,turmeric powder,chopped garlic and hing and let it fry for a min then add bell pepper and let it fry till bell pepper becomes soft.

Once bell pepper becomes soft add cilantro and chickpea paste to it and blend nicely and cook for another 5 min.

Serve hot with rice, spread on a bread, use in a wrap or just use as a dip.


Health Benefits of chick peas / garbanzo beans
Prevents Constipation,Lower Cholesterol,Stabilize Blood Sugar,Iron for Energy as growing children and adolescents also have increased needs for iron n excellant source of protein.

Health Tip:
Increase garbanzos' cardio-protective effects by spicing them with garlic, which also lowers cholesterol, and turmeric, which not only lowers LDL "bad" cholesterol, but also increases HDL "good" cholesterol.

I am sending this patoli to 5 wonderful events
