What is Fara?

Healthy breakfast/snack recipe from Uttar Pradesh, Varanasi, to be particular, made with rice flour and lentils, is fara recipe. It has a coating made with rice flour and the stuffing of lentils, flavored with green chilies, ginger, fresh coriander leaves, etc. It can be customized in a number of ways. Fara can plain, stuffed, sweet, savory, etc. Further stuffing can also vary. This is the recipe for steamed stuffed savory fara. The USP, if I can say so, is the appearance of the dish. It looks very appealing and interesting. It is a gluten-free recipe. Further, it is also an oil-free recipe. It is prepared by steaming and is, therefore, a healthy and weight loss recipe too.

Let’s talk about the ingredients for Fara recipe:

Rice flour or chawal ka aata is something I use a lot in my breakfast recipes. It helps me to make gluten-free recipes. Also with rice flour, I can make quick snack recipes. Likewise, I love to include even lentils for my breakfast recipes. What better than proteins for breakfast and what better source of proteins than lentils (at least for the vegetarians).

As already mentioned there are a number of ways to prepare Fara. This recipe is for the steamed version. Steamed Fara can be tempered in a little oil and mustard seeds etc. Let’s see what all is required for this Fara recipe:

Rice Flour: Dough is prepared using rice flour. Same is rolled and then stuffed with the lentil stuffing to make Fara.

Dals: I have used chana dal and urad dal in the proportion of 1:1. There are recipes which use only chana dal to make Fara.

Flavoring: A bunch of fresh ingredients i.e. green chilies, fresh coriander leaves, and ginger are used to flavor Fara.

Spices: I have not used any spices to flavor the Fara. I like to flavor with the fresh ingredients only, mentioned above. You can add red chili powder, turmeric powder, etc.

Ghee: Spoonful of ghee is used while preparing the dough of rice flour.

Hi! I am CA Vini Mehta. A Chartered Accountant by profession, a food blogger by passion! First of all, I would like to thank you for stopping by at Viniscookbook, I hope you have a good time. Here, yo...u will find the recipes which have been tried, at times re-tried in my kitchen and relished on the dining table. I am mother of two kids and the wife of a person with a high and selective taste sense, so basically anything, before finding its place on the blog, has many levels to cross and clear. This journey started a couple of years back. Before that I was making the most usual kind of food. The only experiment used to be asking my mother how to make something new or different☺. Then, one day, I tried a recipe for butter cookies. And they did not get to go in the container as they were over before I could store them. That day I was introduced to the joy of experimenting with recipes. And I loved everything else that followed especially garnishing and photographing food. I am still not well versed with the photography dos and don’ts but I love to experiment and learn, be it photography or cooking. Hope you too enjoy this journey as much as I do☺! Stay healthy, stay tuned!.
