25th May 2010 - Dinner - Paat Vadi

I had made Paat Vadi last year too, and there was an entry on the blog, but since it was the first time I made it in Canada, I thought I would post a new entry. I am generally nervous with Besan dishes - Besan is a relatively precious commodity here, so I don't want to screw a Besan dish.

How did it look?
A posteriori
  • Since I don't have a blender here, I had to make a plain yoghurt gravy with finely chopped onions. My mom tells me that the original gravy has lots of coconut - another thing I don't get here very easily.
  • I was afraid that the vadi would disintegrate once put in the gravy, but luckily that didn't happen!
  • Pahle jo gravy thee, wo kam lagi, so Sangram was like - make more gravy!, so we made more of it in another pan and poured it on top and mixed the whole thing.

  1. Well, hats off to you for trying out complicated things like this in a land where the ingredients are sparse and charged astronomically!! :)
