Garhwali Recipes: Phanu (फाणु)

Phaanu is a very easy to cook dish of Uttarakhand. Phaanu is mainly made out of Gahat dal ( Arhar or green Mung dal can also be used). 

1 cup: Gahat or Kulath (Horse gram)
4 to 5 cloves: Garlic
1/2 inch piece: Ginger
3-4 : Green chillies
1 tsp: Jakhiya or Cumin seeds
A pinch: Asafoetida
1/2 tsp: Dry coriander powder
1/4 tsp: Turmeric powder
3 cups: Water
2 tsp or to taste: Salt
1/2 cup: Oil ( preferably mustard oil)

Let us cook now:
1.Soak Gahat daal in water overnight. For Arhar dal, soaking for 1-2 hours is enough.
2.Grind the dal till it becomes a dry thick paste in a mixer or on a silbatta (set of stones used to grind in Uttaranchal) along with green chillies, garlic and ginger.
3.Place a tawa on a moderate flame. Put some oil and make thick pancakes ( like cutlets) daal paste. Use only half of the paste for making the cakes.
4.Mix water with the remaining paste making it of pouring consistency. Heat oil in a pan and add jakhiya seeds and heeng. Now add Gahat paste, turmeric powder, dry coriander powder and salt.
5.Cover and cook for about 10 minutes on slow fire. Add the Gahat cakes to the gravy and continue simmer for another ten minutes. The gravy should have pouring consistency. If thick add some more water and heat till it boils.
6.Garnish with pure ghee and chopped coriander leaves.
7.Serve with hot steamed rice.
