Ingredients: Macaroni 250 grams; Urad dhal 250 grams; Channa dhal 100 grams; Grated coconut 100 grams; lime juice 2 tablespoons; Red Chillies 6; Green Chillies 4; Ginger paste 1 spoon; Mustard 1 teaspoon; Asafoetida 1/2 teaspoon; Cooking oil 100 grams; Curry leaves 3 sprays
Method: Soak the dhal for two hours and grind them to a fine thick paste along with red chillies, green chillies, ginger paste and salt. Steam the ground ingredients in a pressure cooker separately till it cooks well. [Once the steamed dough cools disintegrate the mass with a dry spoon.]You should attend to the ingredients in the pan from time to time, adding half a spoon of oil every now and then to prevent it from burning at the bottom. Once the dhal turns into a golden brown add the grated coconut, cooked macaroni and curry leaves and stir well. Add the lime juice finally and mix it well with the other ingredients just before you remove the contents from the fire. Serve hot with either Mint chutney or pickle.
