Sabudana Or Tapioca Paratha With Sweet Corn, Green Peas And Paneer Or Cottage Cheese / Fasting Food

Sabudana or tapioca paratha or flatbread with sweet corn, green peas and paneer or cottage cheese. A delicious and easy to make fasting food. But you can also enjoy it without fasting. Serve it in breakfast or as a snack with tea or coffee. Make small sized paratha and fry on low heat till brown and crisp. Enjoy hot with any chutney or sauce, fasting or feasting. Sweet corn, green peas and paneer or cottage cheese and spices made this paratha lipsmackingly delicious. Normally sabudana or tapioca used on fasting days but I have made it without fasting and enjoyed in breakfast.

Monday again and this week’s 241 #Foodiemonday bloghop theme is Flatbread Fiesta suggested by Poonam Bachhav who blog at Annapurna. Poonam is a very talented blogger. I always love her different types of thali recipes and beautiful pictures. Visit her space for different types of mouthwatering recipes. Poonam already shared some different paratha or flatbread recipes like Mint and paneer stuffed paratha, Leftover dal paratha, Achari aloo paratha and many more.

Recipe is very simple and easy. Just mash the soaked sabudana well with all the ingredients. Make balls and flatten with your palm. Shallow fry with little ghee or oil till golden brown and crisp. To get crispy paratha shallow fry on low heat. And be careful while flipping the paratha upside down to avoid breaking. Use green chilli and crushed black pepper according to your taste. If you want your paratha more spicy, add some more finely chopped green chilli or freshly crushed black pepper powder. You can also use black pepper powder. Vegan people can skip paneer or use tofu.

Recipe

Sabudana or tapioca – 1/4 cup

Potato – 1, boiled

Green peas – 1/3 cup, boiled or frozen

Sweet corn – 1/3 cup, boiled or frozen

Fresh coconut – 2 tablespoon, grated

Paneer or cottage cheese – 1/4 cup, grated or mashed

Green chilli – 1 – 2, finely chopped

Cilantro or coriander leaves – handful, chopped

Ginger – 1 inch piece, grated

Salt or rock salt to taste

Cumin powder – 1 teaspoon

Chaat masala powder – 1 teaspoon

Or

Lemon juice – 1 teaspoon or to taste

Freshly crushed black pepper – 1/2 teaspoon

Oil or ghee/clarified butter to shallow fry

Method

1. Soak the sabudana or tapioca in water for 3 hours. After 3 hours sabudana will be soft. Check by pressing with your finger tips. If its not soft then let it soak for 30 to 60 minutes more. I have soaked for 3 hours.

2. Peel and grate or mash the boiled potato.

3. Drain the water of sabudana completely.

4. In a bowl mix soaked and drained sabudana, mashed or grated boiled potato, green peas, sweet corn, mashed or grated paneer or cottage cheese, grated coconut, ginger, green chilli, chopped cilantro or coriander leaves, cumin powder, freshly crushed black pepper, salt, chaat masala powder or lemon juice.

5. Mix and mash well. Taste and adjust salt and lemon juice if using.

6. Make balls to make paratha. Small or large as you want to make your paratha. I have made 4 paratha out of this dough.

7. Take a ball and press with your palm. If your dough is sticky grease your palm with little oil. Or keep the dough in refrigerator for 30 to 60 minutes. I kept the dough in refrigerator for an hour.

8. Make a round disc by pressing gently with your palm. Heat a pan and brush little oil or ghee in the pan. Place the circle on the pan and reduce the heat. Drizzle little oil or ghee over the paratha.

9. Shallow fry on simmer till edges becomes brown. Flip carefully to avoid breaking. Fry the other side too till brown.

10. Serve hot with any chutney or yogurt.

Notes

1. Use chilli according to your taste. Add more chilli if you want your paratha spicy.

2. You can use 1 – 2 tablespoon more coconut if you want.

3. Vegan people can omit paneer or use tofu.

Karela Nu Shaak Or Gujarati Bitter Gourd Stir Fry

Karela nu shaak or bitter gourd stir fry from Gujarati cuisine.
A no onion garlic delicious stir fry without any bitterness.
If you don’t like the bitterness at all then you can peel the skin of karela before using. This way you will get a finger licking taste without any bitterness. I don’t like to reduce the nutrients so I didn’t.

Considered the most despicable vegetable of all, the karela is high in nutrients and provides numerous health benefits.
Bitter gourd, or karela in Hindi, is relished for its benefits and despised for its bitter taste.
It is an excellent source of vitamins B1, B2, and B3, C, magnesium, folate, zinc, phosphorus, manganese, and has high dietary fibre. It is rich in iron, and contains twice the beta-carotene of broccoli, twice the calcium of spinach, and twice the potassium of a banana, according to Health.com

Earlier posted an easy Tamatari karela or bitter gourd with tomato.

Recipe is very easy to make. I have used peanut but its totally optional. If you don’t like peanut omit it. In Gujarati cuisine jaggery or sugar added to this stir fry. I have used jaggery powder instead of sugar and used only 1 teaspoon. If you like the sweetness, you can add more sugar or jaggery. If you are using jaggery, use grated or powderd jaggery. And if you don’t like the sweet taste skip jaggery or sugar.
Recipe source – Tarla Dalal

Recipe

Karela or bitter gourd – 2 large

Potato – 2 medium

Cashew nuts – 3 tablespoon

Peanut – 3 tablespoon, dry roasted and crushed, optional

Method

1. Cut off the tips from both ends of bitter gourd or karela. Cut lengthwise, make half. Now cut into thin slices. You can scrap or peel the karela if you don’t like the bitterness at all. Discard the hard seeds.

2. Rinse karela pieces and drain the water. Marinate with 1 teaspoon salt and keep aside for 15 – 30 minutes.

3. Press the karela with your palm and squeeze all the water well. Wash the karela 2 – 3 times again in running water. Squeeze well.

4. Peel and chop the potatoes in small cubes. Rinse and keep aside.

5. Cut the cashew nuts nuts into 4 pieces.

6. Heat oil in a pan.
Add cumin seeds, hing or asafoetida and turmeric powder.

7. When cumin starts to splutter add squeezed karela or bitter gourd in it.
Mix and cover the pan. Cook on low flame for 10 – 12 minutes. Stir in between.

8. Add cubed potatoes and salt. Mix well and cover again. Cook for 10 – 12 minutes again. Keep stirring.

9. When potatoes become tender and karela becomes crisp add broken cashew nuts, chopped cilantro or coriander leaves and dry roasted and crushed peanuts if using. Mix well and cook for 2 – 3 minutes.

10. Now add cumin powder, coriander powder, red chilli powder and amchur or dry mango powder.
Mix well and sate for 2 – 3 minutes.

11. Your karela nu shaak or Gujarati style bitter gourd with cashew nuts is ready. Garnish with cilantro or coriander leaves and serve with roti, paratha or steamed rice.

Notes
1. You can use sugar instead of jaggery.
2. If you don’t like peanut skip it.
3. In Gujarati cuisines jaggery or sugar must be added but if you don’t like the sweetness omit jaggery or sugar.
