If you are looking for a protein rich, filling and delicious breakfast, then you have just landed up right. It’s truly a Karnataka special recipe that has mainly protein rich lentils. I never knew that the dumpling made out of lentils alone would taste this great. Because I had never got a chance to taste it when I reside there. It’s now in UAE I could actually taste this lentils dumpling “nuchchinunde” in a food fest. Seriously guys, an Indian food fest with all the good food from Karnataka had happened here last week. Scrumptious, drool-worthy food from most corners of Karnataka had been embraced by we expats. It was truly a foodie mood that drove us crazy to taste everything from every stall set up there.
More than the dumpling, it’s the yogurt dip that tickled my taste bud. Nuchchinunde was served with a thick, creamy, light dip which enriched the deliciousness all together. When I had my first bite, I was like the dip is quite interesting. I proceeded to next bite to find out what ingredients would have been in to it? The flavor of fenugreek seeds was significant to me. Finally I couldn’t resist myself from asking the lady at the counter about Nuchchinude – yogurt dip recipe. The lady was pretty good who briefly explained the complete, begin-to-end process of making this deliciousness. And my food loving mind imprinted the same. So today here are these golden lentil dumplings with a best of best side dish.
When birds chirp and sun shine tomorrow morning, you make this protein rich breakfast and see how many accolades you get from your dear ones. Though you can serve them with normal coconut chutney, try making yogurt dip too. Because it really makes much difference in taste department. Loved it.
