fenugreek powder : little

PREPARATION:

  • First cut lemon into two pieces horizontally. In a bowl take 1 1/4 tspn salt and init squeeze lemon juice (this process is to avoid bitter taste of lemon)


  • heat a pan and pour 3/4 tbspn oil and add urad dal, bengal gram, groundnuts .after 1min add cumin seeds,mustard seeds,dry red chilly, fenugreek seeds powder , asafoetida, green chillies.dont fry dals too much before adding greenchillies since after adding greenchillies it takes 3 mins to get fully fried in that time dals may get over roasted.finally add curryleaves and switchoff the stove.

  • after straining pour plenty of cool water on it to avoid sticking.



  • after straining within 5-10 mins take a bowl and add strained semiya.donot dry it for long time as how we do lemon rice. now immediately add squeezed lemon juice and seasoning and mix well. if u like u can add chopped coriander .



  • after 15 mins u can have ur semiya pulihora.



  • if u feel that adding turmeric in boiling water may cause stains to bowl then u can add turmeric in seasoning itself.

    Hi Preethi,

    You recipes are amazing..we make most of them in the same process.. i was reading through to find something different...When i make this dish it always sticks.. so i stopped doing it. Do you have any tips for making sure the semiya is not sticking

    Hello Padma , wat i normally do is first i will squeeze lemon juice in sufficient salt and put it aside . Next i will make talimpu and put it aside now i will start boiling water along with oil and little salt . In that boiling water i will add semiya . When it is done just strain semiya and put it under cold running water . Put this aside . Just after 5 mins add lemon juice and talimpu . Mix nicely . After staining if u keep it long even more than 5-10 mins it will become sticky. Try this tips .
    With Cheers,
    Preethi.

    Hi Preethi
    Semiya Pulihora is colorful and mouthwatering......
    I want to try this.So one quick question, Do i need to fry semya?
    MY WORLD OF RECIPES said...
    Hi Niharika , u dont need to fry semiya. Just directly add semiya to boiling water and boil for 3-4 mins and strain.

    -Cheers,
    Preethi.

    hey preethi...
    I got a prob here ya.. My semiya isnt coming nicely.. i mean semiya is sticky yaa.. dont know wat to do... and i am still a learner :(((
    MY WORLD OF RECIPES said...
    I guess u are over cooking the semiya . Important points u should remember is
    1) let water boil fully then add semiya and it doesnt take more than 2 to 3 mins to get semiya boiled . If u overcook here then semiya will stick .
    2)As soon as semiya is boiled strain it and pour cool water on it and strain it and immediately take it in to a bowl and add tadka and lemon juice and mix well . serve after 10 mins .

    Follow my tips and try again .

    Cheers,
    preethi
