Uddina Hittu (Udnittu)

Uddina Hittu (Udnittu) is a simple and tasty Udupi dish made with Urad dal flour. It is very easy to make and always comes in handy when you really have no time and need to make something quick and easy. This is also called "Daangar Pachadi" in Tamilnadu. In Udupi, we use coconut oil for tempering, hence this contributes a unique taste to this dish. 

Ingredients :

2 tablespoons Urad dal powder
1 cup yoghurt
1 green chilli, finely chopped
1 teaspoon ginger, finely chopped
A pinch of asafoetida

For seasoning :

2 red chillies
1 teaspoon mustard seeds
1 teaspoon oil (preferably coconut oil)
A few curry leaves
A pinch of asafoetida
Salt to taste

Method :

1. Mix urad dal powder with curds/yoghurt and whisk well.

2. Add chopped green chillies, ginger and salt.

3. Heat oil, add mustard seeds, curry leaves, red chillies and asafoetida. When the mustard seeds start spluttering, pour the tadka in the prepared mixture.
