Dishes from my Other Blog - Quinoa and Lentil stew (Day 162)
I probably should have done this 161 days ago, but better late than never. I also write a daily blog that occupies a lot of my time, These are dishes that I make for my family's daily sustenance, a l'il bit of this, a pinch of that.. and if it tastes good, I take a photograph & post the recipe (on most days, if my lethargy doesn't get the better of me). A no frills blog. You can catch up with all the recipes by clicking on the Dish a Day Tab on the top of the page.
I made this as a protein rich vegan stew to be made in the pressure cooker in one shot. In the end, I blew it by adding a dollop of Labneh. I'd also added 1/4 cup of dehusked urad dal, in the original version, but did not care for the glutinous texture it yielded.
1/2 cup each of quinoa & split red lentils (masoor dal)
2 cups crushed tomatoes
1 tablespoon minced ginger
1 green chili, slit lengthwise
1/2 teaspoon Garam masala
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1/4 cup powdered cashew
Salt to taste
Cilantro for garnish
Wedges of lime for serving
Combine all the ingredients in a pressure cooker pan, Cover with the lid and allow to cook on mediun until the weight releases 2 - 3 'whistles'. Allow the cooker to cool, transfer the stew to a serving dish, Garnish with the cilantro & serve hot with Naans or Roti
