Togari Nuchina Unde (Broken Toor Dal Steamed Dumplings)

 

A very healthy steamed dal dumplings from Karnataka. My dad used to love this. Usually served for breakfast or snack along with chutney for dipping.

 

What you’ll need:

  • Toor Dal – 2 cup
  • Fresh Grated Coconut – 1/4 (to 1/2) cup
  • Green Chilies – 2
  • Ginger – 1 to 1 1/2 inch piece
  • Onion finely chopped – 1 medium
  • Carrots Grated – 1 cup
  • Hing/Asafoetida – 1/4 tsp
  • Cilantro – a few sprigs
  • Salt to taste

Method:

1. Wash and soak the Toor Dal overnight or for atleast 4-5 hours.

2. In a food processor, add the soaked Toor Dal, Grated Coconut, Green Chilies, Ginger, Cilantro, Salt and Hing. Pulse to grind coarsely.
