This one is my kid's alltime favourite and on seeing an event hosted for kids love i thought of sharing it. Obviously this is transferred through ages . My granny's mother is a great cook it seems. I have never seen her in my life. Still my mother in law used to recall her cooking skills, whenever she do this. A small story and am praying GOD that my dear hubby shouldn't read it. I am married to my uncle's son. So all the relatives are common for us. My hubby was born on an Ashtami (Lord krishna's birth was also during an ashtami) with the naval chord around his neck (similar to krishna). My maternal grandma was so scared that, this birth may lead to any disaster in my family, especially to my MIL's brother or her family. This is believed as Krishna's birth killed kamasan, his uncle. So when my MIL got discharged from hospital and reached home, this great granny took the aarti for the kid(My husband). Soon after that she was paralysed and within a week she passed away. I dint have belief on all these, it may be coincidental. But I and the whole family used to tease my husband with this story and he will get damn angry for this. So that's the story of my great granny and my MIL will always point out this story along with her cooking skills.
Ok lets soon jump into the recipe part.
Green chillies - 2(as my kid is having it)
Toor Dhal - 1/2 cup cooked.
Pearl Onions - 10
Tomato - 1
In a kadai, add 1 tsp of oil and add the onions, tomato and chilly and saute well.
Add 1/2 cup of water and add the keerai. Close it with a lid and cook for 5 mins.
Add the cooked dhal and grind it with a mansatty or mixer to a coarse paste.
As i am giving it to my kid, i usually grind it smooth in the mixer. So that he can eat it well.
I can really say this is my kids favourite for his lunch. I feel good nutrients along with proteins is sent to my kid through this recipe. So I often prepare it at least for him.
This keerai kadaiyal enters the Cooking for Kids with Love a sweet event hosted by Jigyasa and Pratibha. I know its a late entrant. I am hoping for the best.
