And we are done. :-) Here comes the roundup of the Protein rich recipes that I prepared in my instant pot. I chose my sub theme as legumes and Pulses from Indian states. I posted legume and pulse based recipes from 26 Indian states all through September. Here is the recap of those 26 Indian Legume recipes that I prepared in Instant Pot.
Last but not the least, here comes a super-rich, creamy dal from the state of Uttar Pradesh. A dal can’t get any richer than this. It’s the smoky flavored Sultani dal prepared with split pigeon peas, yogurt, milk and cream, butter and of course ghee. Yes, we need all those dairy products for this dal. I said it’s a smoky flavored dal too. :-) Check out the detailed recipe and how to add the smoky flavor to this dal.
Today’s recipe is one of the traditional Garhwali cuisine recipes from Uttarakhand – It is the super healthy Gahat Phaanu or the Kulath phanu. Simply put, it is the horse gram lentil stew. I noticed different spellings for phanu. It is written as phanu, phaanu, phanoo. Phaanu is prepared by grinding lentils that are soaked overnight. Based on the lentil you add, it is named accordingly. Gahat is horse gram, and that’s what I am going to share today – Gahat ki Phaanu.
The next recipe in this series is the Dal Dhokli, precisely the Rajasthani version of Dal Dhokli without any onion and garlic. So what’s dal dhokli? Humara Apna wheat pasta in lentil sauce. ;-) ;-) Isn’t our Indian version of wheat pasta in yellow sauce aka lentil curry. :-) Here comes my Pappardelle shaped dhokli simmered in a simple dal curry.
