Assamese Anguli Pitha Recipe

Anguli pitha is a finger shaped recipe made from rice flour.  The Assamese word 'anguli' means fingers and 'pitha' is a type of rice cake. It's an Assamese style recipe that can be served as breakfast(jolpan) or as a snack with the evening cup of tea.

The recipe anguli pitha requires little time to prepare.  As today is Sunday, a holiday, I decided to prepare this recipe for breakfast. It's a very simple and less spicy recipe. This recipe that I am going to share is a salty one but there is one sweeter version of this anguli pitha recipe, which I will share some other day. The type of rice that I am using is called 'lahi chawl' in Assamese which I received from my maternal uncle who is a farmer and he grows rice on his own paddy field. You can use any other type of rice also.  You can also use ready-made rice flour available in the market.  But I preferred to make it myself and therefore I soaked 1 cup of rice on Saturday night to prepare anguli pitha.

Indian Red Lentil Soup with Lentil Dumplings/ Assamese style Bor diya Tenga Dail

I generally use sun dried lentil dumpling in red lentil soup which are easily available in markets and it also saves time.  But in this recipe I made dumplings myself from urad dal (split black gram). It is very soft and fluffy in comparison to the dried one. Dried one is little hard and you can directly add it to the dal after shallow fried.

Red lentil with sun dried lentil dumpling 
Indian red lentil soup with lentil dumplings can also be served as a side dish with rice. It is very easy to prepare as I'm using pressure cooker to cook red lentil.  You need to soak split black gram for few hours to make dumplings. The dumplings can be prepared by dip frying instantly after the batter is blended.

Cheese Corn Toast is a simple breakfast recipe that can be prepared within just 5 minutes.

As my daughter doesn't like onion and capsicum, I haven't added these two veggies on the toast. But if you like, you can add. I'm using ready to eat sweet corn here to save time. It's a no oven recipe.  I made it in a flat pan (Tawa).

Paneer Tikka (Grilled Cottage Cheese)

Paneer Tikka is an Indian dish made from cottage cheese cubes marinated in different Indian spices and grilled in a tandoor, microwave or tawa. We can also add pieces of onion, capsicum and tomato in this recipe. You can serve paneer tikka as a starter.

This is probably my last blog post of 2019. Only couple of hours left for 2020 while I'm typing this recipe. The whole day I was very busy. From evening onwards I prepared many dishes as a part of year ending celebration. I made only vegetarian food today. Today is tuesday and in India  tuesday is considered as a holy day and therefor many Indians eat vegetarian food on tuesdays. We too eat vegetarian food on tuesdays but we have a different reason for it.  As my father-in-law died on tuesday,  we don't eat non-vegetarian food on tuesdays.

As a part of year ending celebration, I prepared panipuri in the evening followed by mixed chat. 





Then I prepared paneer tikka for starter for the dinner.  For the main course I cooked tawa r…
