Yogurt (Pakora) Curry

Submitted by: EJOY-EVELYN

Introduction

In India, this healthy dish is typically served with pakoras (an Indian appetizer-like, fried dumpling).

Ingredients

    2 T olive oil
    1/8 t asafoetida powder
    1" ginger (15 grams ginger paste or 1-2 tsp ginger powder)
    1 t turmeric
    1 large onion, diced finely (8-12 oz)
    2 cups non-fat plain yogurt
    1 c besan/gram/chickpea flour
    4 c water
    2 t salt
    1.5 t chili pepper (cut in half first time)
    1.5 t amchur powder
    3/4 t garam masala

Tips

Making Substitutions: For the typical American household that may not have access to an Asian food market: Leave out the asafoetida and amchur powders, and replace the garam masala (typically made with 5-24 roasted or unroasted Indian spices unique to each family) with 1 tsp each of cumin and corriander powders. If you do not have chickpea flour, 6T of Wondra flour will substitute nicely). I like spicy hot, so don't hesitate to cut the chili or cayanne pepper in half, thirds, or even quarters (ie most Americans prefer a pinch (1/8 tsp per cup of finished product).

The optional veggies or cashews are not included in nutritional information. Be creative with how you use this substitution of a hollandaise-like sauce: For breakfast, I've added to a half serving to 3 or 4 diced eggwhites and 1 crumbled egg yolk served over a toasted english muffin a high protein meal.


Directions

In heated oil, saute asafoetida powder and ginger about 1 minute,

Add onion and turmeric. Saute about 5 minutes

To room temperature yogurt, whisk in flour, then water. Add to onion miture, with peppers and remaining spices. Boil/simmer 20 minutes, stirring often.

Serve with nann, chapaties, rice, steamed veggies, cashews, or pakoras (fried dumplings of onion and cauliflower mix). Not included in nutritional information.

Serving Size: Makes 6 1 cup (8-9 oz) servings
