Baddhi Moong Dal, Puri : Sindhi Breakfast

Baddhi Moong Dal , Puri is a sindhi breakfast, you are familier with aloo puri, chholey puri but this combination is very popular among sindhis .
moong dal ( pulses) with pori sindhi breakfast recipe instructions
 Simple and delicious, easy to cook and no extra  preparations are needed, if you have soaked yellow moong dal earlier, it will hardly take 15 minutes for you to ready with your breakfast. Ingredients required for the recipe are as follows:
For Puri: 2 cups of wheat flour.
cumin seeds : 1/2 teaspoon
red chilli powder: 1/2 teaspoon
salt : to taste
garam masala powder: 1/2 teaspoon
kasoori methi: 1 teaspoon
water: for kneading the dough.
Oil : for frying.
 For daal
moong dal : 1 cup
turmeric powder: 1/4 teaspoon
salt to taste
ginger grated : 1 " piece
green chillies: 4 Nos.
Let me inform you one thing that in normal daal we heat oil , mix jeera rai etc, after cooking it for seconds, mix it in dal but in this recipe, raw spices are sprinkled over the daal and than hot oil is poured over it, this gives  a unique taste to the recipe.
Oil :  1-2 teaspoon for each katori daal
 red chilli powder, amchur powder, coriander powder, roasted cumin powder - all these ingredients are required as tadka has to given on each katori , hence you can sprinkle these ingredients according to your taste.
  • Mix  all the ingredients of puri except oil  & water, knead stiff dough with the help of water, keep aside.
  •  wash soaked moong dal,  ( if you are not in a hurry and ready to spend some time for cooking I suggest you to boil  dal in a heavy bottomed vessel (in sindhis we call it Sipri) you will feel & understand the difference of taste , try it for once). If you are using pressure cooker take dal, add salt, ginger, green chillies, turmeric powder and two cups of water boil till one whistle. In a pan you have to check in between  till dal is cooked and water is absorbed. Consistency of dal should be thick but you can adjust according to your taste.
  • heat oil in a kadhai , roll out puris and fry them .
  • pour dal in a bowl or katori, sprinkle red chilli powder, amchur powder, coriander powder & roasted cumin powder to it, pour 1-2 teaspoons of hot oil over it. 
  • serve hot with papad and pickle of your choice.
