White food

So this morning , I woke up early and was so hungry. Tried having an orange but still wanted to eat something soon . Could feel trains inside stomach . Early in the morning no shops are open .

Ingredients required
Split Bengal gram
Mustard seeds

1. Add oil in the pan , add the mustard seeds, ginger, red and green chilli,curry leaves and Bengal gram .
2. Fry it till golden.
3. Pour some water according to the semolina to add .
4. Let the water boil .

Once it's cool . Make it to small ball shapes or triangle , square whatever and steam it in a vessel.

Coconut chutney should go well with it !

    2. we boil it in water and it is like a thick curry or dal.


Take it easy .
