How to make Puran poli- festival recipes

Puran polis are always a favourite . My friends know how I adore these sweet polis and its sure to be there in the menu when I am invited to their homes during my India visits.I have tried my hand in making them around three times in last five years. Somehow I have always thought it was a time consuming and difficult and messy job to make them, but whatever, the results are definitely worth the efforts. I remember a very funny incident when I was making them for the first time after I got married. I had just come…

Aloo Palak Parathas /spinach bread with potato stuffing

Stuffed Parathas have always been our favourite …As I have already mentioned in my aloo paratha recipe, we were first introduced to the wonderful authentic parathas when we were in Gurgaon. We used to go to Haridwar for bath in the holy ganges. We would never miss the chance of accompanying our friends and relatives to Haridwar or any of the other places which fell in that route. The purpose of going everytime to the same place again and again was a secret… hehe.. We simply adored the parathas for which we used to halt at some highway dhaba for…

 

Chapati laddoo recipe- A leftover delicacy

My sister had this at her friend’s place and she loved it. She told me about this , but did not know the exact recipe. As I tried searching through the net , I found the recipe in Aayis recipes. Incidently I had a few left over chapatis of the previous day and I made this yesterday. I followed almost the same procedure. It tasted really good.

 

Methi parathas recipe / fenugreek leaves flatbread

I buy methi /fenugreek leaves whenever I go to mustafa (Indian stores) and certainly parathas and methi pulao is in the menu and the rest of the leaves is used for some kind of side dish with chapati, usually in combination with peas and potatoes. Methi parathas is a favourite at home and we all usually love it with carrot raitha.

Aloo parathas recipe

Though aloo paratha has always been prepared at home since my childhood, I got introduced to them in a true sense when I was in delhi for sometime. The parathas which we ate in the roadside “dhabas” (restaurants) with loads of ghee on it use to taste so divine especially on the cold winter mornings. I do make stuffed parathas at home, but not too frequently as I find the preparation very tricky. If the stuffing peeks out while rolling the dough, I lose all my patience and the whole thing becomes a huge mess. But this time I was…

 

Palak poori and chole recipe

Poori and chole in Indian cooking has always been a winner combination. You can checkout my recipe for authentic punjabi chole/channa masala here. The chole I made this time is a simpler and quicker version and tasted great too. And the pooris, this time I decided to incorporate some palak/spinach for the spicier and healthy touch and of course for a change from the usual pooris. I will also try to give some tips to make soft and puffy pooris which I learned from my friends and of course from practice. The dough for making pooris should be softer and…

A good healthy one , loved by children as well as grown ups, so thought of sharing it with you all.
