My version of Paaknam, a Manipuri cuisine

Updated: Jul 13, 2019

This is the first time I am sharing a recipe. Ha3, by the way, I am a great cook.๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ So, when I was about to get married, I was in a hurry to learn "Paaknam", a Manipuri cuisine because my "would be husband" loves it. Love, you know! ๐Ÿ˜œ So, My sweet sister-in-law (Enama), my Guruji, taught me this quick " delicious,but no oil at all" recipe.This is my "kaam chalau" version. Here we go... 1. Spring onion or dhaniya patta( coriander leaves)๐Ÿ”ช๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿƒchop chop (for veg ) otherwise you can mix both, spring onion will be tastier. 2.Besan 3. All the masalas and salt, chilli... Don't think, just put everything ๐Ÿ˜‚ ๐ŸŒถ๏ธ 4. Roasted Fermented fish(otonga).For veg people, avoid it๐ŸŸ๐Ÿ™Š And now mix everything with water to make a loose dough in order to flatten it like a chapati. ๐ŸŽถ๐ŸŽถTan tana...๐ŸŒฌ๏ธ inhale and exhale๐ŸŽถ๐ŸŽถ ...Get a banana leaf/ turmeric leaf(more than one) ...put the flat dough on it and wrap it properly ...where is the cooker? Oh yes, fill it with a little water and place a Tiffin box(with lid) and now place the dough wrapped in the leaf 'on' the Tiffin. Yuhu... Perfect. ๐Ÿ™†๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘Œ ... Now let the cooker whistle for five/six times and then open it when it's ready , take out the Paaknam. ...heat it on a pan, sing a song,turn it over and you will know when to turn off the gas. Congratulations, get ready to eat.๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿค
