Kamal Kakdi Ki Chaat (Spicy Lotus Root Appetizer) – Manjula’s Kitchen
Kamal Kakdi Ki Chaat
- 2 cup sliced lotus stem I am using frozen, Kamal Kakdi
- 1 Tbsp oil
- 1 Tbsp ginger thinly sliced, adrak
- ½ tsp cumin seeds jeera
- ½ tsp salt
- ¼ tsp black pepper kali mirch
- 1 tsp green chili finely chopped, Hari mirch
- ½ tsp lemon juice
Also Need for Serving
- ½ cup whipped yogurt for serving
- 2 Tbsp tamarind chutney please add the link check the recipe
pressure cook the Kamal Kakdi in an instant pot for five minutes in two cups of water. I also drained the water. Kamal Kakdi should be tender. Notes: you can also, use the pressure cooker and cook at the same time, or you can also cook in a pot for 20 minutes.
Drain the water and pat dry.
In a frying pan heat the oil over low medium heat. Add the oil, oil should be just warm add sliced ginger. Stir fry for about 2 minutes and take it out in a bowl. I will use this ginger later for garnishing. Note: I feel adding ginger later it gives a nice kick to chaat.
Use the same pan and it already has some left-over oil. Oil should be moderately hot, add cumin seeds. As cumin seeds crack add kamal kakdi, stir and sprinkle salt and black pepper.
Stir fry for one minute add about 1 teaspoon of chopped green chiles and lemon juice stir fry for about 2 minutes, turn off the heat. Kamal Kakdi is ready to be served.
Plating the chaat, drizzle yogurt over kamal kakdi also drizzle tamarind chutney. And finish it off with some green chilies and roasted ginger.
