Kasuri methi baturas – easy indian deep fried bread

When I visited kailas parbat for the first time, something which really piqued my interest were their chole baturas. Of course, it was not the first time, I was coming across or having chole baturas. To tell you the fact, I have had the authentic ones during our stay in Delhi. I have devoured different varieties of them and have really enjoyed them to the core. But here in Kailas parbat, they had something different to offer.

 

Corn dhokla recipe – easy snacks recipes

I had made this some ages ago for an evening snack and we had gorged on it and loved it.I buy corn many times as my kiddo likes it. But I often forget about it leaving it in the refigerator perhaps for a fortnight. It happened this time until I finally thought of making bhutte ka kees. But thinking of the meagre amount it will be after all the process, I dropped the plan and thought of making this dhoklas. I referred to a number of recipes in the net. Nothing special about the recipe, its almost same as we…

 

Millet (kuthiraivali) dhokla recipe – Easy snack recipe

If you are a regular reader here, I have mentioned before that I make use of millet once or twice a week.Thanks to blogging that I have actually come to know about this important healthy ingredient.

Bhutte ka kees recipe- Grated corn upma – Easy corn recipes

I buy corn quite often as my son loves it.I roast the corn directly on fire and coat them with spices and lemon juice and he loves it this way. Sometimes I microwave the corn for a few minutes and then serve it. I have also tried pakode/fritters with corn and posted it before. A couple of years ago in India , I used to buy lot of sweet corns and bring back home. They used to sell fresh from the farms near a place I worked. I really miss the farm fresh fruits and vegetables we used to get…

 

Indori poha recipe – Easy indian breakfast recipes

Poha has been a regular thing at my place since my childhood. Its made once or twice every week for our breakfast or sometimes even a snack. Its made so often that I never ever thought of posting it in my blog. My mother used to serve poha often garnished with some sev or grated coconut on the top. But I make it quite plain without much of the fancy ingredients and garnishings. But when I saw the recipe for indori poha in several blogs , I thought of making it that way for breakfast one day as it was…

 

Stuffed Aloo puri recipe – kids lunchbox recipes

Its definitely a challenge to cook for the kids. Its difficult to please them. But its so satisfying if they eat something so well, especially if we have put a lot of efforts cooking something for them. I have a tough time cooking for my 7 year old. He is my best food critic, definitely a tough job to please him and a happy “me ” if he gives me a thumbs up!! He usually loves the cakes I make, especially if it is chocolate. I often wonder about what to send for his school lunch time. He has his…

 

Rava dhokla recipe – Easy and healthy Indian breakfast recipes

I have had the best food of my life , I mean I have really enjoyed to the core different kind of delicious food during my stay of two years in Gujarat. The different kinds of chaats, icy desserts like gola , khaman, dhokla etc was so tempting and so very tasty. I experienced that real authentic taste of different chaats.
