Recipe source : Nupur adopts from ''Lajjatdar Masale'' by Mrs.Vaijayanti Kelkar
1/2 Cup Coriander seeds
1/4 cup Cumin seeds
2 tsp Shahi jeera (Black Cumin seeds)
Dry Roast all the spices (I used a 1/2 tsp of oil) in a medium flame, until all the Ingredients change colour, cool it down and Grind it into fine powder, and store it in a cool dry place in an air tight container.
This Masala Nupur says is mostly used in making Amti Bhaat Bhaji translated as Lentil dal.
I used in making this Matki/Moth Beans subzi.
MATKI/ MOTH BEANS SUBZI
Sorry doesn't look good, but tastes good!
1 Cup Matki/ Moth Beans sprouted (yields 3 to 4 cups of sprouted Matki)
2 Medium sized Potatoes
2 Medium sized Tomatoes
1 Large Onion
1 tsp of Turmeric powder
1/2 tbsp of Red chilli powder
1 tbsp of Amti Masala
1/2 tsp of Amla powder
1 Tbsp of oil
1 tsp cumin seeds
1 tsp Mustard seeds
few curry leaves
Heat a pan with oil, when hot add the seasoninngs, when they are done, add chopped onions saute, them then add the chopped Tomatoes, sprouted Matki and cubed potatoes saute them together then add 2 cups of water, bring it to a low flame cover with a lid and allow it to get well cooked, then add all the spices mix well, allow it boil and to get it thickened, if it doesn't add a tbsp of corn flour/Rice flour, but I prefer to mash a few potatoes which are well cooked, helps the gravy to thicken, adjust your spices to your taste, don't have to use the same amount as said above, because usually the spices we use might be different from yours, Add salt as required mix well, Garnish with fresh coriander leaves and serve hot with chappatis/pulkas or with anything you wish to eat it with.
