Gujarati Series: Kathiawadi Thaali

Sev-Tameta Shaak, Sliced red onions, Vagharela Marcha, Ohloh and Parothas.....A Kathiawadi delight.


Vagharela Marcha - Stir fried Peppers:

5-8 - Jalapeno or Chili Peppers- chopped
1 tsp - Mustard Seeds
Salt, Lemon Juice, asafoetida - to taste
1 tsp- Olive Oil

In a pan, heat the Olive oil till it is quite hot, add the mustard seeds and wait till they crackle. Add a pinch of asafoetida and the peppers. Stir fry until the edges look soft. Add the salt and some lemon juice. Serve as a side.

Sev-Tameta Shaak:

5-6 large, ripe red tomatoes (fresh is best in this particular recipe)-chopped
1 medium jalapeno- chopped
1 tbsp- Olive or any other oil you use
1 tsp each- mustard seeds, cumin seeds, chili powder, cumin-coriander powder
1/2 tsp - turmeric and asafoetida
salt, sugar - to taste
a handful of curry leaves, a couple of dried chilies (yes, this is a spicy dish)
Ready made Sev- besan/chickpea thin or thick noodles

Heat oil, add the cumin and mustard seeds. When they crackle, add the dried chili, curry leaves and the chopped jalapeno. Let the Jalapeno brown for a couple of minutes.
Add the chopped tomatoes and stir. Add the rest of the seasonings, except the Sev. Let the natural juices come out, if you'd like a bit more sauce, add a little bit of water. Cover and cook for 15 minutes on medium low heat. Add sev just before serving. if you add it too soon, it will turn soggy. Enjoy with some hot parathas.

Great recipes..so different from the Indian food that I know. Hey, does any of you ladies have a recipe for these amazing cookies that I had in India? Kind of shortbread with either Ajwain or Jeera seeds?
Thanks!
