A healthy traditional tiffin that is easy to make

This is a quick, tasty, and filling tiffin. I learnt this recipe from my grandmother way back in 1965 and it has always found many takers.

What you need

Rice flour - 1 cup

Curd - 2 cup

Salt - 1 tsp

Edible oil - 5 tsp

Mustard - 1/2 tsp

Green chillies - 2

Asafoetida powder – 1 tsp

Cooking instructions

Mix rice flour, curd, salt and asafoetida powder in a bowl. Pour oil in a kadai and add mustard. When it sputters add the rice flour and stir continuously. When it turns semi-solid (around 3-4 minutes), cover with a lid and cook ensuring that it does not stick to the sides of the pan. When it browns a little turn off the flame and let sit in the kadai for two more minutes. Garnish with coriander leaves.
