MOR KOOZH (OFCOURSE ITS MORE COOL)

Sending this recipe to Eat Healthy - During Pregnancy Event hosted by Sangeeth and FIC White hosted by Lubna and Sunshinemom.
Sudeshna's Harvest -the festival of rice Event.

Buttermilk is lower in fat than regular milk, because the fat has been removed to make butter. It is also high in potassium, vitamin B12, calcium, and riboflavin as well as a good source of phosphorus.
During pregnancy time indigestion is common problem we come across. Those with digestive problems are often advised to drink buttermilk, as it is more quickly digested. Buttermilk has more lactic acid too.
It helps to keep our body cool and prevents the side effects of body heat especially during pregnancy time. One cup of buttermilk has 99 calories and 2.2 grams of fat. In this dish, added cumin and hing helps more in digestion and good for heart too. As it is well known that pepper is a very good appetizer and good for ulcer. Hope it will be useful to some extent for future moms.


INGREDIENTS

Butter milk 2 cups
Rice flour 1/2 cup
Hing a pinch
Cumin powder ¼ tsp
Salt to taste
Pepper a pinch
Dried red chilli/green chilli 3 to 4

For Tampering

Oil 3 to 4 tsp
Mustard ½ tsp
Chenna dal ½ tsp
Urid dal ½ tsp
Curry leave few

METHOD


Dilute the butter milk to 3 cups add hing, cumin, pepper powder and salt to it.
Add rice flour and whisk it for few mts. Now u can get the nice thin batter (thinner than dosa/idly batter.)
If the batter is too thick add some more butter milk or water accordingly.
In a pan pour gingelly oil, pop up mustard seeds, fry both dals n chilli it turns golden brown. Pour the batter stir continuously without taking hand. Be Careful not to form lumps. Sprinkle few drops of oil now and then approx to 2 tsp. If u can use oil liberally it will not be sticky. Cook until it done and looks shinny and not sticky to the sides of the pan.

Very tasty and easy dish for evening time. This is our child hood favo dish. My mom always prepares this dish whenever she gets extra curd. We love to have with lemon pickle we don’t prefer spl or particular side dish for this.
Serve hot with any pickle or as per yr taste.

This is really interesting. The dish itself looks very tasty, and I had no idea about buttermilk's usefulness during pregnancy.
