Sojne Dal / Drumstick with red lentil

Sojne Dal / Drumstick with red lentil

  Don’t get confuse with the title. It’s not chicken drumstick. Drumstick / Sojne is a vegetable. I was so excited to find it my local vegetable shop. It reminds my grandma / my Father who think that Sojne has medicinal value. I was not very sure about medicinal value of it. When I google it, it has high in nutrition value.

Pat Shak Dal / Lentil with jute Leaf

Pat Shak Dal / Lentil with jute Leaf

  This one is my cheating recipe. No really cheat but short cut one. I think all of us can cook lentil. For Pat Shak Dal / Lentil with jute Leaf we need cook thick lentil and when lentil is cooked and add jute leaf. The trick of the recipe is how to cut jute leaf. Keep the whole leaf without stem. If you don’t keep whole leaf, you will get slimy lentil. Though some of us like slimy Pat Shak Dal / Lentil with jute Leaf. Traditionally lentil uses for a typical one (kalai dal) with is not available where I live so I used red lentil. If you cook with with Kalai dal, you need to soak it about 2hours then cook same way like red lentil. If anyone want full recipe, let me know. With lots of love thanks again and don’t forget like my facebook page or join my facebook group to keep in touch with me.
