Boondi ki Sabzi


My colleague's mother is a great cook. Even the simplest dishes taste slightly different and anything she dishes out is truly out of this world. I have to sample everything colleague, P, brings in her lunch box. Many a time, I try the recipes at home too. This is one dish which I tried almost immediately. It didn't turn out exactly the way she makes it, but it was very nice.


1 cup Boondi

1 Onion, chopped finely

1 Tomato, chopped finely

1 tsp Ginger Paste

1 tsp Chilli Powder

1/4 tsp Turmeric Powder

1/2 tsp Coriander Powder

1/4 tsp Garam Masala

1 tsp Oil

Salt to taste


Heat the oil in a kadhai. Add the onions and fry for a couple of minutes. Add the ginger paste along with the turmeric, coriander and chilli powders. Add the salt and the tomato and fry for 3-4 minutes. Add half a cup of water and bring the mixture to a boil. Add the garam masala and the boondi. Mix well and serve immediately. This is perfect with chapattis.

Oh Raaga, thank you so much for visiting my blog. I so what to venture into the world of Indian cooking. I don't know what is holding me back. I LOVE the idea that you gave it a go even though as you say It didn't turn out exactly the way she makes it. This gives me all the more reason to someday try. Thank you so much for your inspiring post. I have been here before but now I must add you to my blogroll so I remember to return:)

I wanted to say, I've stopped waiting for kadugu and jeera to cracke, because that takes oil to smoking point, and that's when free radicals (carcinogens) form in huge amounts, in the oil...
fyi...

As the Idea ad goes, "accha idea hai sirji!"
I love boondi raita and also add it to my salads sometimes, but this is excellent. Your mum is definitely a good cook.
