TOGARI-TARAKARI NUCHHINUNDE/ STEAMED DAL-VEGETABLE DUMPLINGS

Posted in : SNACKS / BAKED / DEEP FRIED / STEAMED on by : Divya Suresh

Generally we make this (nuchhinunde) with only dal. But I tried it by adding vegetables. Then I realized its a great idea. It can be eaten with any chutney or sauce. Here I have served it with sweet (tamarind & dates) chutney.

 

Below is the pic of nuchhinunde using only dal/lentil ie…. no vegetables used, You need to make just one change, add more fresh coconut ie… almost 1/2 cup of grated coconut can be added.

 

  

 

Ingredients:

  • Pigeon peas/ Toor dal – 1cup
  • Green chilli – 2 nos.,
  • Red chillies – 4 – 6 nos.,
  • Asafoetida(Hing) – 1/4 tsp
  • Grated fresh coconut – 2 tbsp
  • Curry leaves (chopped) – 2 tbsp
  • Salt to taste

 

        Vegetables:

  • French beans – 2 tbsp
  • Carrot – 2 tbsp
  • Fresh green peas – 2 tbsp
  • Corn kernels – 1/2 cup
  • Broccoli – 2 tbsp

        PROCEDURE:

  • Wash  and soak toor dal for 2 -3 hours
  • Grind the dal coarsely adding chillies and hing
  • chop all the vegetables and cook for 5 minutes and let it cool
  • Add coconut , curry leaves and salt to the dal
