Maha Shivaratri – Feb 28th – March 1st 2022

shiva_Pooja

Maha Shivaratri is celebrated onFeb 28th in USA and March 1st in India. Please check your local calendars. It is mandatory to visit the temple and seek the blessings of Lord Shiva during this day. In many customs they do fast on this day, but in our Madhwa tradition it is a festival and we do not fast. I remember visiting the Shiva Temple at Vijaya College in Bijapur which had 1001 Lingas along with my parents every year.

Attached below are prayers to say for Lord Shiva and seek his blessings.

Vandhe Sambhum Umaapathim Suragurum
Vandhe Jagath Kaaranam
Vandhe Pannaga Bhooshanam Mrigadharam
Vandhe Pasoonaam Pathim
Vandhe Soorya Sasaanga Vahnni Nayanam
Vandhe Mukundha Priyam
Vandhe Baktha Janaasryam Cha
Varadham Vandhe Sivam Sankaram

Meaning:

I bow to Sambu the Lord of Uma and the teacher of the Devas. I bow to the Lord Who is the root cause of the entire world. I bow to the Lord, Who has the serpent as His ornament, Who carries a deer. I bow to the Lord of all beings. I bow to the Lord Who has the Sun, the Moon and the Fire as His three eyes. I bow to Him Who is fond of Mukundha. I bow to Him, Who is the refuge of all devotees and Who grants boons to them. I bow to Siva, the creator of all auspicious things.

Sprouted Moong Beans Spinach Poori

I planned on making dosa, was doing it almost every week, felt bored to eat dosa again. As I poured the ground batter into a bowl, kept thinking how boring to eat dosa again and again. Why not eat something else, why not Poori for a change and completely transformed the dough from dosa batter to Poori batter and fried pooris for a change. Day 1 we had 5 pooris. By the time we ate 3, we were full. This poori is quite protein rich because of Sprouted moong beans. The second day I made, we just ate 3 each.

You can easily use the same recipe for making parathas. It becomes an healthier version with all nutrients.

Ingredients:

  1. 2 cups Whole wheat flour
  2. 1 cup spinach leaves – washed
  3. 1 cup sprouted moong beans or hesaru kalu
  4. 1/4 inch ginger
  5. 3-4 green chillies
  6. 1/2 tsp cumin seeds
  7. Water to mix
  8. Salt to taste
  9. Oil to fry

Method:

In a mixer, grind the sprouted moong beans, washed spinach, ginger, green chillies and salt and grind to a smooth paste. In a large bowl, add the flour, salt, cumin seeds, ground mixture. Knead well to make a soft dough. I didn’t need any water. I had maybe 1/4 cup of water while grinding and so used the same.

Roll poori and fry in oil.

I served with potato, tomato, capsicum curry.

Lots of other poori recipes can be found in the blog:

Lots of recipes for Paratha as well:

Enjoy what you eat, and once a while eat foods that you crave.
