Khyati's Health-O-Meter Says:

Lachko dal is an authentic Gujarati dal preparation. Dal [lentil] is high in protein, folic acid, and dietary fiber.

  • Split Pigeon Peas [Tuver / Toor Dal] - 2 tbsp
  • Turmeric Powder - ¼ tsp
  • Oil - 1 tsp
  • Black Mustard Seed - ¼ tsp
  • Asafoetida - a pinch
  • Curry Leaves - 3-4 
  • Green Chili [sliced] - 1
  • Dried Red Chili - 1
  • Salt as per taste
  • Water as needed
Step 1 Rinse the split pigeon peas [Tuver/Toor dal] Step 2 Combine the pigeon peas and turmeric with 6 cups of water [use 3 cups if not making Osaman] in an Instant Pot or pressure cooker. Step 3 Cook at high pressure for 8 minutes. Then allow the pressure to release naturally for at least 10 minutes. Step 4 Using a large sieve, strain the dal mixture. Set the liquid aside to make Osaman. Transfer the sulids to a medium-sized bowl. This is your Lachko dal.

Baked Modaks

No one would ever miss having modaks, during the Ganesh Chaturthi festival, they are high in calories, but still the nutrition we get from coconut & jaggery can't be avoided. Fresh coconut is a quick source of energy & it also improves digestion & absorption of nutrients. They also keep your skin & hair healthy. Jaggery is also a good source of iron, thus good for anemics. If we neglect the number of calories, then 1 modak a day is always better than the chocolates or sweets which we get in the market.

Thai Salad Dressing

Sesame seeds are rich in mono-unsaturated fatty acid and oleic acid which helps lower LDL. Olive oil is rich in essential fats especially heart friendly mono unsaturated fatty acids.

Vrat Ki Kadi

Vrat ki kadhi is good for health as it contains some major ingredients like curd and rajgira flour (amaranth flour). Curd enhances the digestion and also strengthen the digestive system and it is a good source of protein and calcium.Rajgira is a good source of magnesium, vitamin A and vitamin B. Since it is high in fiber and slow to digest, it makes you full for longer, eliminating the urge for repeated unhealthy snaking.
