Batata Nu Shaak With Doodhi Thepla

 
This is my second gujarati meal after preparing khichadi with kadhi a few days back. You might have noticed I am preparing simple dishes as this cuisine is new to me. It took me only 45 min to prepare both the dishes side by side n I enjoyed it. I got this recipe from from Nandinis Blog. Thank you Nandini for keeping a beautifull collection of recipes.So here is the recipe...

Ingredients:
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup chickpea flour/besan
  • 2 tbsp rice flour
  • 1 cup grated bottle gourd/doodhi
  • 1/2 tsp chilli powder
  • 1/4 tsp turmeric powder
  • 1/4 tsp cumin powder
  • 1/2 tsp coriander powder
  • salt to taste
  • 2 tbsp oil
  • 2 tbsp cilantro /coriander leaves
  • 1/2 tsp oil for frying each thepla

 
Cooking Procedure:

Mix all the above ingredients except the oil needed to fry the thepla into a soft firm dough. If needed add very little water as the bottle gourd already contains lot of moisture.Let it sit for 10 min.

Divide them into small 1 inch diameter balls, make them into circles with a rolling pin n fry on a pan on both sides till golden brown with a little oil.

Batata Nu Shaak

  • 1 tbsp oil
  • 1 tbsp chopped cilantro
  • 1/4 tsp cumin seeds
  • 1/4 tsp sugar
