1/ cup pump­kin seeds (shelled, 2 roasted) 2 tbsp grated Parme­san 2 cloves gar­lic 1-2 green chill­ies

3/ cup co­rian­der leaves 4 2 tbsp fresh le­mon juice

1/ cups olive oil 2 salt to taste


Com­bine the pump­kin seeds, Parme­san, and gar­lic in a food pro­ces­sor. Pulse on and off, for about 20 sec­onds, un­til the seeds are al­most ground.

Add co­rian­der leaves, le­mon juice, and olive oil, and pulse on and off for about 40 sec­onds (you may want to scrap down the sides with a spat­ula in be­tween pulses), un­til all the in­gre­di­ents are com­bined. The mix­ture should be more like a course paste than a liq­ue­fied sauce, so be care­ful not to over-process.

Trans­fer to a bowl, taste, and ad­just the sea­son­ing with salt.


1 cup corn ker­nels 1/ cup corn meal

2 1/ cup wa­ter

2 1 tbsp ginger gar­lic paste

Flat­ten it on a greased tray. In a mixer, make paste of co­conut, chilies, co­rian­der leaves, curd & salt. Cut the round shape of flat­tened corn. On one cir­cle spread co­conut, spread and cover with an­other one. Like­wise make all. On a hot tava, shal­low fry with lit­tle oil on both the sides. Serve hot with chut­ney or sauce.
