Not getting enough time to devote much time to my blog as this whole month is very busy for us. Initially we were under the grip of Durga Puja fever then came Bojoya celebrations and my b'day. So need to catch up in this blogging world but even today we are preparing for Lokkhi Pujo. Yes today is the Lakshmi Puja day after the hustle and bustle of Durga Puja( See Previous Post). After Goddess Durga is immersed, Lakshmi Stays back . As she is the Goddess of Wealth so this evening we decorate the house, offer tributes and keep the main door open till the time the Puja ends ( so that she enters the house without any hindrance).
And after the ceremony, a veg preparation of kichudi and fritters are the order for the day. Here I have prepared urad dal kakore for lunch. The recipe is below. Hope you like them.
3/4 cup Urad Dal (White Skinned Lentils)
2 Onions, chopped
3-4 Green chillies
Handful coriander leaves, chopped
1/2 tsp Cumin seeds
A big pinch of Soda
1/2 tsp Red chilli powder
1/2 chopped Ginger
Salt to taste
Oil for deep frying
Wash lentils and soak in water for 5-6 hours. Transfer it into a wet grinder and with very little water (2 tbsp) and grind into a fine paste. Place the paste in a large bowl and mix everything into it. Heat oil in a frying oil and once the oil is hot add 2 tsp into the batter to make the pakoras more crispy. Take small quantity of batter and drop into hot oil and fry until they get a golden tinge. Use kitchen tissues to absorb excess oil. And serve with ketchup or garlic chutney.
