Hello all, This is my first post in my food blog. Being Gujarati by birth, my love for gujarati food is unmeasured and incomparable. Being wife of software engineer and mommy of little angel, Jisha it becomes tough for me to get time for cooking food. Yet, I get time to cook and experiment few dishes from available ingredients in my kitchen. Being a lazy girl I love dishes that are made easily and tastes yummy.
Here goes my first recipe of Bread Locho, inspired by famous Gujarati Surti item Locho. I have replaced Chana daal with bread. and actual recipe needs 7-8 hours and this one is instant one.
servings: serves two
Brown Bread-4 pieces
Turmeric- 1/8 tablespoon
Red paprika-1/8 tablespoon
Salt-as per taste
Onion-finely chopped 1/2 cup
Curry leaves- 10 to 12 leaves
Green chili- 1-2 (optional)
Coriander and nylon sev
First of all cut bread in small pieces.
Mix turmeric, salt and red paprika in curd.
Add pieces of bread in curd and each and every piece must be coated with curd very well.
leave it aside for few minutes.
Till then place nonstick pan on stove and add oil.
As the oil heats , add mustard seeds and asfatedia.
Add curry leaves as mustard seeds starts crackling and after a while add onions and saute them. (Here in pics I forgot to add so I saute them separately)
As onions turn brown, add the bread mixture and saute on high and occasionally medium till the bread turns brownish in color.
Take out the mixture in plate. Garnish with Nylon sev and coriander. You can also add mint chutney and tamarind chutney with some curd.
