How Can Coconut & Cilantro Savory Pancake Make You Feel Great?
Appropriate for any meal of the day, Coconut and Cilantro Savory Pancakes are made with sour idly batter. They are similar but thicker than crepe-like dosas. A traditional Indian dish, this variation was happily discovered in Pune, India where it is called "Coconut Uttapam." It's impossible to study Ayurvedic cooking without an Indian dish or two- your taste buds will begin to understand the complementary dance of the six tastes, thrill at new flavors, and ways of making delicious, healthy food. Coconut & Cilantro Savory Pancakes are an excellent addition to your repertoire of cooking!
Magically Mutable Mung BeansThe humble and bland little bean is your passport to enjoy the rich and exotic flavors of India. Mung bean is a versatile legume that absorbs flavors of other spices and herbs, retaining their purity and vibrancy. They offer a mesmerizing belly full of contentment; a bowl-full of satisfaction that can easily become wonderfully addictive. While it fills your belly, you'll also enjoy many health and nutritional benefits. Mung beans and kitchari have a long history of food and medicinal use throughout Asia and have now made their way into kitchens here in the United States. Here, experiment with mung bean flour as your pancake medium - it offers more protein and fiber and less sugar than traditional batters, all while remaining naturally gluten-free. The batter used for a number of Indian dishes including these Savory Pancakes, is fermented, offering increased digestibility and lightness.
Healthier Fried Food!Who doesn't love fried food? One of the most fantastic elements of Ayurveda is that you can discover how to make tasty fried treats that are better for you and your family than average fried fare! Mung bean flour and coconut oil are healthy alternatives to peanut oil and heavy wheat batters used in most restaurants. Vata types can rest assured that this recipe supports their airy nature. Pitta and Kapha need to be mindful of whether fried food is a healthful choice for their more oily, earthy nature.
Mung Beans & Weight LossMung beans are a low-calorie, natural choice to help you overcome the hardest challenge of weight loss: curbing your hunger pangs and keeping your cravings quiet. How many other ingredients can boast comfort and satisfaction while restoring lightness to your step and clarity to your mind? If you have a weakness for fried food, this recipe offers a better choice than typical American fried fare. It won't derail your healthful efforts, and the high fiber content in mung beans aids in cholesterol reduction and lowers blood sugar levels. Plus, mung beans are a mild diuretic which helps to reduce excess water weight. Add a little extra spice, and this dish becomes a supportive choice for your new, healthy lifestyle.
