“In order for our daily diet to be balanced, it must contain a
share of protein,” says Vaidya Mishra. SVA recommends using
either, or both, vegetarian or animal sourced protein – depending
on individual needs.
Here is a quick, easy, nutritious way to introduce protein from
lentils to your diet with "vadi" - pronounced "ba-ree!" A
vadi is a "lentil dumpling" popular in North India. It
adds a unique texture and flavor to any meal or as a stand-alone.
It is light yet highly nutritious in content.
Directions: Place the amount of vadis of your
choice (1/4 cup to 1/2 cup) in a dry pan, stir and toast until
color turns golden and aroma is released. Add some Mum's Ghee or
the oil of your choice, add the spices of your choice (cumin seeds,
ginger, curry leaves, or Mum's Masala), mix well, then add 1/2 cup
water. Cook for 3-5 minutes on medium heat until your vadis are
soft. Your vadis along with broth are ready to serve. You may add
some fresh squeezed lime and a few sprigs of fresh cilantro. You
may also add vegetables or protein to your vadis - add these just
before adding the water to make the broth. If you are adding
paneer, it will not need additional cooking time, however, chicken
will need to be precooked or pre-steamed.
Vadis, with or without vegetables or protein, go great with rice
