Dahi chura : Yoghurt and flattened rice bowl; Gluten free.

Comments : 4 Posted in : Appetizers & Snacks, Recipes on by : Ratna Tags: , , , ,

The  world  of  Instagram  is  full  of  delicious  pictures.  I  am  being  drawn  towards  food  in  a  bowl.  The  varieties  are  mind  boggling.  Be  it  salad  or  smoothie   bowls,  the  choices  frankly  are  too  many.  It  almost  feels  like  an  artist’s  palette.   The  combination  of  colours,  the  selection  of  ingredients  are  done  keeping  in  mind  their  place  in  the  colour  wheel  as  well  as  their  nutritious  value.

.

In  Ayurveda  the  food  has  been  divided  in  three  categories.  Those  that  are  pure,  essential,  natural,  vital,  energy  containing,  clean  and  conscious  fall  under  the  ‘Sattvic’  category.  Yoghurt  is  a  sattvic  food.  All  auspicious  events  calls  for  Dahi  or  yoghurt.

Incidentally  today  being  Mahashivratri,  Sattvic  food  is  much  desirable.

Now  combine  it  with  Poha,  Chura,  or  flattened  rice,  garnish  with  some  seasonal  fruits,  and  the  result  is  health  in  a  bowl.

 

Recipe:  Serves  3-4  as   breakfast.

Ingredients;

Flattened  rice  ( thin )                                                                1  cup

Greek  yoghurt                                                                               1  cup

Persimmon  slices                                                                          1/2  cup

Fig  slices                                                                                            1  Tbsp

Goji  berries                                                                                      1  Tbsp

Almond  slices                                                                                 1  Tbsp

Method:

Wash  the  Poha  with  couple  changes  of  water.  Add  the  yoghurt  and   mix  well.  The  consistency  should  be  to  your  liking.  Adjust  by  adding  more  yoghurt  if  need  be.  Divide  it  in  three  serving  bowls.  Decorate  with  the  fruits  and  almonds.

I  did  not  add  any  sweetener.  The  persimmons  were  very  sweet.  Feel  free  to  add  honey  or  other  sweetener  of  your  choice.

Inside  Scoop;

Poha ,  Chura,  or  flattened  rice  is  available  in  Indian  grocery  store  or  in  the  world  food  section  of  Walmart.

It  is  very  light  and  easily  digestible.

All  measurements  can  be  tweaked  to  your  liking.
