Green soybean-stuffed and
INGREDIENTS Green soybeans soaked overnight: 2 cups Freshly chopped ginger root: 3 tbsp Garlic cloves: 4-5 Black pepper corns: 2 tbsp Cumin seeds: 2 tbsp Chopped coriander leaves: 1/2 cup Green chilies and salt to taste Fermented whole wheat sourdough: 2 kg Ghee to deep fry the bhatooras; the sidu is served with some ghee on the side METHOD Make a coarse paste of the soaked green soybeans and the other ingredients. Add coriander leaves to the paste and mix well. This paste should not be runny, so grinding on a stone mortar and pestle would be a better choice, if possible, or use the pulsating mode of the grinder. To make bhatooras, divide the dough into 60 gm portions. Take each portion and make a hollow cup out of the dough. Place a tablespoon of the soybean paste in the cup and seal it. Now flatten the stuffed ball of dough and roll on a floured surface to make the bread flat. Repeat to make more such breads. Deep fry the breads in hot ghee or oil and serve hot with chutney, raita, etc. To make the steamed bread sidu, roll a portion of the dough in a circle of 10 cm diameter. Spread a little soybean paste over it, fold the circle like a book and seal it to make crescent shaped stuffed bread. Repeat the process for all dough balls. Arrange them in a steamer lined with lime leaves and steam. Serve hot with ghee.
