Palakura Pesarpappu Fry

Another VahChef special. I didn’t have a lot of ingredients (like onions, curry leaves, urad wash, chilis) but it still came out so good.

My modified recipe:

Fry big chunks of garlic in a (very) generous amount of oil. Cook pesarpappu in a separate ginne for a while till it’s half cooked. Then add it into pan with oil. Cook it a bit. Add paspu and karam. Add spinach and salt. Mix it real good and cook it for a while. Add some water and cook it. The mung beans don’t have to be all the way done like in regular pappu.


I had not realized u can make a fry with pappu n spinach and not just like gravy pappu!!

also i made phulka on the flame style.

Pics + Notes

1. Tomatoes and some masala or podi make curries taste great. The curry can be mixed vegetables or spinach+tofu or anything.

2. Avocado and podi/pickle with rice is great too.

3. Easy cookies from Chocolate Covered Katie. They were soft and brownie-like as promised.

4. 3 ingredient almond butter cookies. I used rice cups instead of actual cups for measuring. These taste great and are really easy to make, but they use up almond butter really fast.

5. 5 whistles is too long to cook black-eyed peas (soaked overnight). Maybe try 2-3 whistles next time?

Spinach patty things

  photo 4 (11)

Spinach mixed with moong flour, corn flour, fennel, coriander seeds, garlic, some other things my mom put.

Form into “logs” and pressure cook for some amount of time that my mom knows.

Cut and freeze for later.
