Can someone please help me with telaga pindi recipe and where can i get it in Bangalore?

Telagapindi is the residue left after extracting oil from sesame seeds. Usually available with small oil extractors. Considered very nutritious. Famous in Andhra.

I don't know where it will be available in Bangalore but I can let you know the recipe of telaga pindi podi if you need.

1. Telaga pindi - 500 grams
2. Red Mirchi - 20 in number (approx)
3. Jeelakarra - 2 table spoons
4. Salt - as per the taste

Procedure:

1. Grind red mirchi along with Jeelakarra
2. Add salt to this mixture
3. Add Telega pindi and grind for 10 seconds

P.S.: Not advised for pregnant woman

Thanks,

My wife does a similar "pindi" with white sesame seeds, it would be a bit moist due to the oil but tastes great, is there any reason why you need the "residue" rather than the seed? would be curious to know.

I learnt from my grandmother that there are multiple reasons mainly -

1. Taste
2. This increases lactation for feeding mothers post pregnancy
3. This is rich with calcium so helps people ailing with knee pains.

My mom's recipe calls for the "residue" rather than seeds themselves.

It is great to know that the seeds can be used directly.

How much Basmati rice to use with 1 kg of chicken while making biryani? Biryani has only chicken with bones, no eggs. What is a good ratio to use?

Hmm, this is apparently tapioca starch. What's special about this?
That it can thicken without application of heat?

Saw this demo'd by a Michelin-star chef during an interaction in Delhi.

He turned freshly pressed orange juice into a gel just by adding 2 teaspoons of this, then used it while plating a fondant. The texture and flavour of the gel in the mouth had a far more *wow* factor to it than any orange juice I've ever tasted.

Will share the recipe in a bit, but I'd love to get hold of this ingredient.

No. This is a 'modified' (i.e. chemically treated / made in a lab) derivative of tapioca starch, not tapioca pearls powdered as such. More about it here: http://msk-ingredients.com/Ultratex-2496.

Correct assumption ksmrsm

750 gms of cooked rice or about 500 gms of raw basmati rice.

Basmati Rice do not have very good yield and normally is about 1.2 times/dry weight.
