Missi roti and panchmel dal --Rajasthani recipes

One good thing about food blogging is it makes me hunt for more recipes and try out those food which I never thought of making. Now for the RCI Rajasthan event, after googling and debating on what to make out of so many dishes, I settled on making Rajasthani dal and missi roti. So here is how I made them.

Missi roti-
Wheat flour - 150gms
Besan -250gms
Red chilly powder-1tsp
Dhaniya Powder -1tsp
Ghee -3tsp
Jeera -1/2tsp
Kaala Jeera -1/2tsp
Salt -1tsp
Ajwain -1/2tsp
Mix all the ingredients well and knead them into a stiff dough. Roll into thick rotis and roast them on a tava. Brush little melted ghee on the roti.

missi rotiServe hot. Shahi ghatte is a good combination with missi roti.

Rajasthani panchmel dal - (side dish for chapatis /rice)
Chana dal/bengal gram- 1/4 cup
Mung/Green gram- 1/4 cup
Udid dal/Split black gram- 1/4 cup
Tuvar dal/Pigeon pea split-1/4 cup
Masoor dal/Red gram split- 1/4 cup
Salt-To taste
Green chillies-2
Ginger- A small piece
Whole red chillies-2
Coriander powder- 1 tsp
Cumin powder-1 tsp
Red chilly powder-1/2 tsp
Turmeric powder- 1/2 tsp
Tomatoes-2 chopped
Oil- 3 tb
Cumin seeds- 1/2 tsp
Cloves- 4-5
Asafoetida-1 pinch
garam masala powder-1/2 tsp
Soak the lentils for around two hours. Add salt and turmeric powder and pressure cook them. Make a paste of green chillies and ginger. Add little oil in a pan.Add asafoetida, cumin seeds, cloves and dry red chillies. When cumin starts to change colour, add the ginger-green chilly paste and saute for sometime. Stir in some cumin powder, coriander powder and red chilly powder. Add the tomatoes and cook till oil separates. Add the cooked lentils and water if required. Cook for 10 mins stirring well. Add garam masala powder and serve hot with rice.
