Hello Foodies,

       Naga Panchami is a traditional festival, on this day worship of snakes observed by Hindus throughout India. Panchami is the fifth day among the fifteen days of the moon's waxing and/or waning. This special day of the snake worship always falls on the fifth day of the Hindu month of Shravan (July/August). (This year nagpanchmi is on 15th August 2018). Hence this is called Naga

Panchami. On the Nag Panchami day, cobras(Naga), and snakes are worshipped with milk, sweets, flowers, wheat flour and jaggery lamps(कणकेचे दिवे), Wheat Kheer(गव्हाची खीर) and this puranache dind(पुरणाचे दिंड). In villages, the anthills(वारुळ) where the snakes are thought to reside, are searched. Incense is offered to the anthill as prayer along with milk (a traditional story of folklore to feed milk to the snakes) to ensnare snakes to come out of the anthill. After this, milk is poured into the hole in the anthill as a libation to the snake god.
            Nag Panchami is around the corner and to celebrate this nag Panchami I am sharing here Dind recipe. This traditional Maharashtrian sweet recipe is a steamed wheat flour wrap and chana dal and jaggery stuffed sweet dumplings recipe. There is tradition or ritual that, on Nag Panchami day, no deep frying is done by those who celebrate the Nag Panchami festival. So mostly steamed food such as dind(पुरणाचे दिंड), wheat flour lamps (कणकेचे दिवे), wheat kheer(गव्हाची खीर), bajra lamps (बाजरीचे दिवे), patolya, etc. are cooked on Nag Panchami. You need a steamer to make this all steamed recipes. I have used instant pot(electric pressure cooker) to steam Dind. You may use an idli steamer or modak steamer or pressure cooker too. So let's start with the recipe.

Instructions :

To Make Dough :
  1. In a mixing bowl add wheat flour, salt, and veg.oil and knead into a dough using enough water.
  2. Drizzle some oil over dough,
    cover and keep aside.

To Make Puran / Stuffing for Dind :
  1. Clean and wash chana dal.
  2. Turn on instant pot and add a cup of water.
  3. In another pan add water 2 cups, turmeric powder, chickpeas/chana dal, and veg.oil.
  4. Place pan into the instant pot and close the lid with the vent on sealing position.
  5. Cook on high-pressure manual mode for 8 minutes and followed by NPR.
  6. Add the cooked chana dal into the strainer to drain all the water. (You may use this water to make 'Katachi Amti').
  7. Heat a pan and add cooked chana dal and jaggery, mix well and cook on a medium flame for 10 to 12 minutes or till the mixture thickens, while stirring continuously and mashing at regular intervals.
  8. Now, turn off flame, cool Puran or stuffing slightly, mash it using a masher or place it into the grinder and grind it to make excellent consistency.
  9. Add the cardamom, nutmeg powder, and crushed dry fruits and mix well.
  10. Divide it into equal portions and roll to make square shape stuffing. 
To Make Dind :
  1. Knead the dough a little and make equal size small balls and roll into a circle of about 3 to 4-inch size.
  2. Place a stuffing square in the middle and fold into a square or rectangle.

To fold the Dind :
  1. Fold the top and bottom sides of the circle over the stuffing.
  2. Then fold the remaining two sides and press very lightly to keep them together.
  3. Place a banana leaf in the steamer and grease it with ghee / veg.oil.
  4. Place the dind on the banana leaf in a single layer. Do not put them in a double layer, as they will stick when cooked. 
To Steam the Dind :
  1. Turn on instant pot and pour 1 cup of water.
  2. Now place the steamer and close the lid of the instant pot.
  3. Place the vent on sealing position and steam it for 10 minutes using steam mode of the instant pot.
  4. NRP for 5 minutes and then quick release.
  5. Once done pour ghee and serve hot with kheer. Enjoy!!!
To Serve Dind :
  1. Make a hole in the Dind and add ghee in that and its ready to serve.
  2. You may also serve dind with wheat kheer.
My Take :
  1. You may cook chana dal on the stove top in a pot or in a pressure cooker until it is soft or need to cook chana dal about 2-3 whistles.
  2. If you don't have a banana leaf, you can use a cloth, or you may grease the plate with a little oil.
