    My Views-

     As I spend my childhood in Sonepat,Haryana and married in Kolkata, Usal Misal is not so popular in these regions. But I first tasted it in my friend’s home ,when I was in college. It is something different from usual punjabi and bengali dishes. It is a nutritious dish as some used sprouts Moths,which is healthy. The pack which I received has  a mix of puluses as rajma,chhola,beans, gota moong daal ,black gram etc. All of these are mixed in a unique quantity to make it something different and more nutritious. You have no need to mix all these seperately. It is a ready made pack of all mixed pulses. You just have to open and cook. The quality of pulses is good . So for me its a good product 👍as you do not have to make labour of mixing so many pulses. 

    Method of making usal- misal-

    This usal- misal is a healthy dish which can be had as breakfast, snack or as a brunch.It is delicious and wholesome meal. For kids also It is a full nutritious diet. I promise you that you cann’t forget the flavour and taste of this Maharashtrian cuisine. I used coconut along with spices, which gives it a coastal taste and flavour. 

    INGRIDENTS-

    Usal-Misal- 1 cup

    Onion- 2 medium sized

    Red chilli- 1 tsp or as per taste

    Turmeric- 1tsp

    Garam masala- 1/2tsp

    Dessicated coconut- 1/2 cup

    Fennel seeds- 1 tsp

    Tomotoes- 2 medium sized

    Coriander leaves- 1/4 cup(chopped)

    Salt- as per taste

    METHOD-

    1. First wash and soak usal for 2 hours. Pressure cook till they are cooked . It generally takes 10-15 minutes. 

    2. Take a kadahi, pour oil or ghee,add sliced onion and fry untill become translucent. Add fennel&coriander seeds to the onion and fry till their aroma starts to spread. Add ginger-garlic &fry for 1-2 minutes. 

    3. Add coconut and mix well ,fry the coconut till brown. Turn off the gas and after cooling ,make a paste in the grinder.

    4. In another pan, heat the 2tbs oil. Add onion and paste. Just fry for 1-2 minutes. Add Turmeric & red chilli poeder. Add coconut paste ,salt and simmer for 15 minutes. 

    Now just serve the delicious usal-misal with pav and lemon slices.I served it with burger bread as I couldn’t get pav bread due to short supply of bread😣!

    I also served it with rice. You can also try to serve with roti /Indian flatbread. Believe me it goes very well with rice  and roti also.


    P.S.- This is an honest review of the product. All views are mine and all pictures are photographed by me.

    Cooking Tips

    Hello friends,

    Hope you all are doing well! Today I am going to share you some useful cooking tips.  

     Storage of Spices- Being a housewife Its a big problem to store spices after opening its seal or packet. There are chances of it being spoil. So we have to find a better option to store it. Some tried to store in glass bottle or some tried to put in plastic bottle. There is no need to transfer your spices from its original packing. You have just to do one task. Make a space in your fridge to place spices there. Just store there . They will remain fresh for many months. As for example If you keep  chat masala outside in any container then after some time its texture change and it appears wet. So to cop up with these problems just put your all spices in fridge and free from all tensions. As you agree with the fact that spices are not so cheap😊. Try this at once and I am 100%  sure that you all will thank me for giving such a tip😀!

    Storing onion,ginger-garlic paste- If you are interested in making onion,ginger&garlic paste in fridge for a long time without adding any preservative then I have a nice tip for you,guys. After washing and cutting all these you have to fry all these in a kadahi after pouring one tsp of oil. Try to do in a nonstick kadahi. When they all become dark brown then give some time to cool it. After cooling make a paste in your mixer without adding water . After that store in a plastic lid glass bottle. Store it in your fridge. Whenever you need some paste ,take it out and use it . You can store it for 20-25 days. What a easy tip 😀! Try this.

    Tips regarding your pressure-cooker- As you all are aware of the fact that pressure cooker is an important thing to cook our meal quickly but do you know that we should not cook sour things in aluminium based cooker. Because due to chemical reaction , it is bad for your health. So, If its necessary to add tomoto then you can add it seperately cooked in a steal vessel and then mix it in. You can also increase your cooker gasket life by just put in fridge after using it. When you are not using your cooker then after cleaning the gasket (rubber) , which is used in cooker lid and essential for a cooker , put it in a plastic packet and store in your fridge. It will increase the life of gasket.                                             Hope you all will like it.Share your experience with me and also the problems if you are facing regarding anything else. I would love to help you in your problems😀!        

    P.S.- All pictures and tips are solely mine.
