Hunger-pangs can strike anytime! Even at midnight! Then, just like Cinderella ran away from the ball, we run to the fridge or kitchen! If I feel hungry, I dish out the favorite recipes of mine in a jiffy! Okay, I am exaggerating! Jiffy is a very short period of time! To prepare anything good, we need to invest time and effort!
I am sharing this recipe that's easy to prepare and does not take much time either! I have named the title of this Post as 'Two-In-One Snack Doodle' as I have created a Doodle that illustrates the recipe for 'Moori Bhaja' or 'Chuda Bhaja'! Preparation for both is the same! But, the main ingredient may be 'Moori' (Puffed Rice or Kurmura) or 'Chuda' (Flattened Rice or Poha or Chirwa)! It's a dish that I simply love!
'Moori Bhaja' or 'Chuda Bhaja' is really filling and healthy! It tastes best with Mustard-Oil. It is non-oily as it doesn't require much oil! Note- 'Chuda Bhaja' needs a teaspoon more Oil than 'Moori Bhaja'. In Odia language, 'Bhaja' means 'fry'.
We can also prepare it as a dry snack using Moori and other ingredients and without using Gas/Flame at all! That ways, the recipe is 'Jhaal Moori' - that's a popular snack in Odisha and West Bengal.
Adding Sev, Papri, Chutney and Sauce can give it the taste of 'Bhel Puri' - Mumbai specialty, now relished nationally!
My Doodle is self-explanatory!
This is my entry.
