Halwa-Puri (poori)

Happy Varamahalaxmi!



Varamahalaxmi virtha is an important Hindu festival  observed on the Friday before the full moon in the month of Shravana by  hindu women and is dedicated to Goddess Laxmi It is mostly celebrated in  many parts of South India and Maharashtra .Women either gather at a nearby temple or  at somebody's home where the puja is arranged. The main puja takes place with holy offerings of flowers, sweets and coins. A semi-circle is created and an idol of Goddess Laxmi is kept in the middle.When the puja gets over women offer fruits, flowers and other holy items and seek blessings of Goddess varamahalaxmi for marital bliss.




Like every year, we celebrate Varamahalaxmi virth with family and friends and lots of yummy dishes are served  and naivaidya in the evening.
So today on this auspicious occasion  i thought of making this easy to make dessert.Sooji ka Halwa /Halwa along with Poori i a indian breakfast delicacy . Halwa is usually served at breakfast with puris and when it comes to festivals like laxmi puja or any other indian festivals Sooji ka halwa is most famous dessert prepared though out india. There is a wide range of recipes for making sooji ka halwa, here is an easier one for you. 
  1. 1 cup Semolina (Sooji )
  2. 1 cup Sugar 
  3. 4 Cardamom ,crushed
  4. 2-3 cloves
  5. Saffron a pinch
  6.  21/2 cups Water
  7. Raisins & cashew nuts for garnishing
  8.  3/4 cup Clarified butter/Ghee

  • In a medium size pot heat clarified butter and fry cloves ,let it splutter.
  • Add semolina and stir constantly on low heat till its color turns pale gold and becomes fragrant.
  • In  sauce pan add water, sugar, saffron and boil till sugar dissolves. 
  • Now pour this sugar syrup over the fried rava and keep stirring and let it cook until most of the moisture is gone. Add the cardamom powder, mix it in, then cover and set on low heat to steam for 2 minutes. 
  • Garnish with nuts before serving. 
For the Puris/pooris:
  1. Sift the flour, add the baking powder, salt, yoghurt and oil. Gradually add in the warm water and knead to a soft dough. Let it sit for about 20mins, then divide the dough into 10-12 pieces. Roll each one out to about 4 inches diameter.

For soft puris proceed as follows:
  1. Heat your oil, make sure it's quite hot. Put in a poori in the hot oil and immediately start splashing hot oil over the top of it with a spoon.
  2. Gently press down on the poori with the back of a wooden spoon or spatula, and you will see it start to puff up. If the poori turns dark in less than a minute, the oil is too hot. Reduce the heat of the stove. Gently press down with the spatula, and wait till it puffs completely, it should take only few seconds.
  3. Flip the poori over and cook the other side until golden brown.

For crispy Puris, this is what you need to do:
  • Before rolling out your pooris, dip each ball into the rava and roll each one out to about 4 inch diameter. This will help puris to become firm and crisp. Fry them in the oil on both sides until golden and remove.
  • Drain on paper towels.

At the end of the meal, almost everyone will be seen licking their fingers and requesting for more.I got the recipe from my Blogger friend Nutan kini. This pickle is a  perfect balance of Hot,sweet and sour and i am sure all these flavors will dance in your mouth and will tickle your taste bud.

  • Now let it cool completely. Store in air-tight bottles.
Tip:
  1. Be careful when pickling, no water should come in contact and the fish should be fried thoroughly and bottle should be sun dried and clean and use only hot oil.
  2. This pickle should keep for more than a week at room temperature or you can put them in the fridge to be on the safer side and it will keep for months....no worries. I hope this helps.
  3.  You can use any type of boneless fish or fillet for making this pickle.

    Usually they prepare this dish with country chicken or free range, which is little hard and chewy compared to our broiler or farm fed chicken.This dish tastes goes well with our manglorean dishes  like idli,neer dosa or pundi/ oondi .Country chicken with skin tastes good.

  • For second paste : In the same jar grind coconut along with Cumin seeds to a coarse paste without adding any water ( just one or 2 round is more than enough while grinding.In this dish you should feel the coconut and jeera/cumin ,so keep it as coarse as possible).

  • Now spread the rava,on a plate to cool a bit.

cabbage sandigey(cabbage vodi in konkani).

Vodi is a specialty of GSB konkani's a type of sun dried rice fryums .Its also very famous in other parts of south india,but this type of vodi is only prepared by  Konkani GSB's. Actually we love to have papad or vodi along with  our rice and dal whether its lunch or dinner some fried item is a must.
vodi is a dried snack which is light and crispy when its fried and goes well with rice and dal or sambar .It aslo goes well with our south indian kanji/ ganji /pej ( boiled red rice with starch) in konkani .Normally people prepare this in summer and use it for rainy season.
          Every year i prepare this with different combination,i use garlic or onion in place of cabbage.




Ingredients:-
Rice(dosa rice)-11/2
Sabudana-1/2 cup(soak for an hour)
       or
Beaten rice-1/2 cup(grind it along with rice)
Cabbage-2 cups(chopped finely)
Red chilly-15
Coriander-1tbsp
salt to taste

Method:-

  • Soak rice for about 10-12 hours in 11/2 liters of water
  • Grind  rice to fine paste along with chilies and coriander.(if you are using beaten rice instead of sabudana then grind it along with rice)
  • Now heat a heavy bottom pan and mix the paste,soaked sabudana and salt.
  • Now add  2 lts of boiled water to the paste and keep on stirring to avoid any lumps.If it is too thick then add some more boiled water and keep stirring all the time.cook over a low flame.
  • Cook till it starts bubbling. cook further for 5 mins.
  • Now switch off the flame and add chopped cabbage.
  • Cover and keep over night.
  •  To prepare vadies, spread some plastic sheet outside or in the balcony or in the terrace ,drop the mixture with a spoon or with the fingers into small lumps.Dry in sun for  a day and next day turn over,dry again for 2 or 3 more days till its completely dry.
  • Store  in an  air tight container.t
tips:

 1. Be careful when you are adding salt to the vadi batter,as it shrinks to 1/2 of its original size when it dries.So add little less salt than normal.
2.its better to make the mixture night itself to save your time and energy so that you can start spreading this as early as possible in the morning.
