4 bread slices

1/2 cup milk

1/2 tsp sugar

1 tablespoon raisins

1 tablespoon chironji

1 tbsp. coconut grated-optional

1tbsp. green coriander leaves chopped

1 tsp ginger finely chopped.

salt & pepper to taste

1tsp. cumin powder or Chaat masala

1 cup fresh curd..sieved to make it smooth

Cut of the crust from bread slices.

add sugar in the milk.

Mix coriander,ginger,chironji,raisins in a plate........fillingTake a slice in hand, dab it with the milk and then put one tsp filling and close the ends by hand pressing it firmly.

Put dahibaras in a plate and pour the curd over them. You may put a little ( half tsp ) sugar in the curd.

after 2-3 minutes...sprinkle salt, pepper and cumin powder..........ready to be eaten:),Its a healthy and tasty dish without any sugar or oil.

RenuDi, what is chironji? I have a feeling its not the same as kalonji (which I do have :)

Renu said...

r right, kalongi is a spice and chironji is a dry fruit, its very small and pinkish in color,its available at indian stores in US, if not then u can make with whatever dry fruits u like.we normally use chironji for halwas,kheer etc.
