Dahi Barey

TRADITIONAL FRIED LENTIL 
DUMPLINGS IN YOGURT



Today I am here with a typical traditional dish named
Dahi Barey

Dahi means Yogurt and 
Barey are the fried dumplings of two lentils ...
They are Tea Time treat and
you can freeze them after frying for around a month ...
Very easy to serve if you have some unexpected guests at any time
Just put them in hot water for 5 minutes and 
press a little that excess water drain out  and dip them in yogurt ...


Please check your pantry that you have all these things...
For Dumplings
White ivory lentil ... 1 cup
Mung Bean ... 1/2 cup
pinch of salt
3 clove of garlic 
3 fresh green pepper  ( optional)
cooking oil for deep frying


Soak both the lentils over night


Now grind them with little water in 3 to 4 batches
include garlic and green pepper at this time
( used the water in which the lentils were soaked)


You have the batter like this


Now you can fry them in two ways...Like this
Simply scoop a table spoon of the batter and carefully
drop down in the hot oil and fry them in low medium heat
until beautifully light golden


Like this


Second method ...
Oil a frying pan a bit and spoon the mixture
in round shape like a biscuit


 $ to depending upon your frying pan size ...
leave them on low heat for about 3 to 4 minutes 
Or they fried a bit that they can hold their shape ...


Now shift them in a skillet for deep frying
This shape look more beautiful while presenting


Now dip them in hot salty water for two to three minute


In the meantime prepare your yogurt 
1/2 liter Yogurt
 1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon sugar
Whisk them well


Drain out excess water and soak them in yogurt for 5 minutes


In a dish arrange them in this way


Oh it looks so tempting... Now you can understand that 
why I am saying that this shape look more presentable ...
Pour remaining yogurt over the dumplings 
and set aside for sometime...
They are moist, refreshing and 
They can be good appetizer before lunch


I garnish it with sweet and savory tamarind chutney 
roasted powder of cumin and coriander seed

For Tamarind chutney

Soak 1/2 cup tamarind in 1 1/2 cup hot water
2tbsp brown sugar
1 tsp salt
1tsp red chilli powder
1 tbsp powder of dried ginger and cumin

Soak tamarind about 1/2 an hour ...
squeeze and strain out juice ...
mix all the ingredients and cook it  until  moderately thick
cool it and store in an air tight jar in the fridge...
it can be stored upto 3 months ...

Cumin and coriander powder

Roast cumin and coriander seeds in a frying pan 
or in microwave... when aroma comes
grind coarsely and sprinkle over the dumplings


Hope you like the dish
Let me know the result if anyone of you try it
I am waiting
