Atakula Daddojanam / Savory Dahi-poha / Jhaal doi chira

018

Daddojanam refers to tempered spiced curd rice – a comforting South Indian recipe  . When rice is replaced with flattened rice or poha/ chira , it is called Atakula daddojanam .

 I am on diet since couple of days!! So looking for healthy but yummy diet friendly recipes !!! Just got an awesome idea .. This is a South Indian speciality “Atakula Daddojanam” or Savory Dahi- flattened rice ( chira ) !!! Inspired by my Indian blogger friend Aruna Panangapalli of Aharam. Thank u Aruna !! I just modified a little !! A great recipe if you are looking for low-cal but healthy breakfast options !!! This is not more than 280 cal !!! If you are looking for more healthy option , you can try this with oats too . I’ll mention the process at the end of the recipe too .

Ingredients : ( serving for 1 )

1/4 th cup flattened rice / poha 

1/3 rd cup ,plain yogurt 

1/2 tea spoon musturd seed

2/3 dried red chilies 

1 tea spoon finely sliced ginger

1 tea spoon chaana daal

Some peanuts 

Few Curry pattas

Salt to taste 

1/2 ( half) tbl spoon oil

 

Procedure:

1. Wash and saok the chira in water for few minutes , until soft , around 5 minutes . Drain out the water .

2. Beat the yogurt and mix with chira . Add some salt , not too much .

3.  Put oil in a frypan and add musturd seed , before the oil is too hot . Otherwise the seeds will be burnt and will taste bitter . Now add the dried chilies , chana daal , peanuts . fry a little until the daal and peanuts are brown and crispy . Add the ginger . Add few curry pattas and pour the tempering over the Dahi-chira and serve !! 

 

Tips:

1. You can use oats instead of chira too . For that cook oats with water until it absorbs all the water . Let it come to room temperature , then mix with yogurt and temper like the process above.

2. You can add cubed fried carrots and potatoes , if you are not on diet . 🙂

  1. Hey Khadiza! I am so glad you liked it and made it so soon after I posted the recipe. Thank you for the link. 🙂

    • Thanks a lot my dear !! I really loved it !! Looking forward to many more mouth watering South Indian recipes from you !!! ❤

  2. dadhi + odanam = dadhyodanam; odanam, food, rice. I think this is the original derivation, now colloquially transmuted in ‘daddojanam’. Was very puzzled until I could work out the derivation! Namaskar.
