So you are sitting in the living room and staring at the gorgeous stuff that people that people click with their magical little boxes called camera. While you can sit there and feel about you not having the patience to do the same or you can work your magic in creating something you are proud of you.
I am of the latter kind. While I feel terrible at times for not paying enough attention to these details like presentation and story telling. So is it the ingredient that keeps me going, YES. I am a loyalist when it comes to food habits. I have always been a fan of the broken wheat/bulgur. My healthy eating days are here to stay so I have been giving this gorgeous ingredient a spin of all kinds.
You shall need: [Makes about 20 small balls]
1/2 cup broken wheat
3 cup water
1/4 cup chopped fresh corriander leaves
2 tbsp bajra/jowar/ragi/besan/while wheat flour [I used Bajra Flour]
Salt and red chilly powder
juice of half a lemon
Peniyaram pan/non stick pan
- Wash the broken wheat 2-3 times.
- Soak it in 1 cup water for 20-30 min.
- Bring 2 cup water to a simmer and add the broken wheat [minus the soaking water]
- Reduce the flame to medium and stir using a fork occasionally.
- Once it cooks, it will be double in volume and the water will almost be gone. – say 12-15 min or so
- Put the wheat in a strainer to get rid of extra moisture.
- Cover the strainer with a tea towel. Stir it with fork a few times till this cools.
- Move the wheat to a bowl once it is cool to touch.
- Add the flour, salt, corriander, lemon juice and red chilly powder. Taste to adjust the spice.
- Heat the pan and add a drop of oil in each slot.
- Using a spoon, scoop the mix and make tiny balls of it.
- Put these in the pan and let them brown well on all sides.
- Once done, serve with love.
