Pithod is my favorite dish which i learn't from my grandmother. And of course everyone knows grandma's cooking is always the best :)Ingredients:
1cup curd
1cup Gram flour (Besan)
1 cup water
Salt to taste
1 pinch Turmeric powder
2 pinches red chilli powder
1tsp lemon juice
1. Mix all the above ingredients and blend it togther in to a smooth paste.2. Fry the batter on a medium flame till it becomes thick and starts to leave the pan sides or doesn't stick to your finger.3. Once above step is done, immediately spread the batter on a round plate evenly and sprinkle some red chilli powder. Spreading it too late may cause the batter to dry and will not spread evenly.4. Leave the above spread for about 15mins and then roll over slowly without breaking and cut in to small round shapes.
Garnishing :
1. Fry little mustard seeds, cumin seeds, curry leaves in 1tsp ghee and spread over the cut round shapes of pithod.
2. Garnish with coriander leaves.
