Pan Cake with self rising flour

Yummy I love pan cakes they are somewhat near to our Indian Dosa. They are fluffy, soft and delicious in taste. I love having them any time during day with honey!!!!....

Here is the recipe for easy pan cakes.
Self rising all purpose flour-2cups
Sugar-2table spoons
Salt 1/4 table spoon
Cinnamon powder/nutmeg powder/ cardamom powder-1/2ts ( optional)

  • Take self rising flour in a bowl.
  • Take eggs in a separate bowl and beat them add little milk and beat  them well.
  • Add sugar + salt to this mixture and mix again now add remaining milk and  mix well.
  • Add this complete mixture to the all purpose flour and mix well. The consistency of the mixture should be just  like the dosa batter i.e when you take little flour and drop from top it should fall in a single line.

  • Refrigerate this mixture for about 30min.
  • Now, take the skillet and heat it add olive oil / butter to the pan and take one big spoon of batter and add just like dosa on to the pan.

  • Wait for some time, when the bubbles start appearing on the top flip the pan cake and cook untill golden brown, always medium flame is preferred while making them.

  • Decorate this pan cake with honey and fruits you like.

Hope you like my recipe :)

IDLI batter became watery friends need your suggestions

Morning while talking  to my hubby, I was adding water into over night fermented Idli batter, while talking I didn't realize how much water I'm adding. Few more water drops spoiled my whole batter. Consistency now is thin. I left it that way in refrigerator. I can make utappam but I want Idli, friends any ideas to repair it?

How to make delicious soft bread buns with self rising flour?

We can play with the bread bun recipe. Every one has their own version of making them. I had experimented with different kinds of recipes and came out with my own recipe which is perfect for making soft buns. These buns are perfect for making sandwich/tea time snack. I love self rising flour and its uses, I had already posted pan cakes and cake with self rising flour. It is very easy to use and yields very fruitful results.
Now coming to recipe

Makes 8 medium size buns
Self rising flour-3cups(When measured with 160ml cup)
Salt-1/4tea spoon
Butter-1 cup(melted and measured with 160ml cup)
Egg-1+1 for wash (coat on surface of unbaked bun)

Dhokla with the readymade flour available in the market

Dhokla is one of the dish I always wanted to try, this time I bought some ready made dokla flour form the "Patel brothers" one of the Indian grocery store in our near by area. The ingredients on the pack say that it contains besin (Gram flour) and rice flour. I was little confused, about the kind of ingredients that goes into the recipe. Later I did a little research and came up with my own recipe. It worked, dokla came out wonderfully. I never tasted dokla before, but now after making this yummy and healthy Indian flour cakes, I regret for not tasting them before. Form now dokla always stays in the weekly snack menu of our home.

I feel so dumb sometimes, because I bought dokla flour but forgot the fact that I do not have dokla plates. If your case is same like me, give me "high-5"!! No problem you can use the idli plates instead. Problem solved!  Now coming to the recipe.

Dokla flour- 1 cup
Curd/ Yogurt-1/2cup
Turmeric-1/4 t.s
Chilli powder-1/4 t.…
