Samosa- yummy snack

Samosas are my favorite snack during tea time. I even like to enjoy them when raining. They are crispy and yummy. Although there are many kinds of stuffing's made in INDIA, I always like alu samosa. 
Boiled, pealed and diced to small cubes-2cups
Carrots boiled and diced-1/2cup
Green peas-1/4cup
onions diced-1/2cup
Cumin seeds few
Ajwain-1/2 tea spoon (very little)
green chilies very finely chopped-3ts
salt to taste
chat masala/ pudina chutney powder-1ts
cilantro-10springs chopped


  • First prepare the dough for the outer crest of the samosa.
  • for crest preparation take the all purpose flour/ maida in a mixing bowl along with ajwain, salt and 2ts of vegetable oil.
  • Mix all the ingredients together, It is better to use hands instead of spoon or spatula, the oil should coat the  flour very well, then add water and knead like pizza/ chapati/roti dough.
  • Rest the dough for 15-20min, mean while prepare the stuffing.
  • For stuffing, heat 2ts of vegetable oil in a pan and add cumin seeds and allow them to splutter.
  • There after add onions and green chilies and saute until onions become transparent.
  • Now add turmeric and green peas and garlic and cook this mixture in a open vessel under medium flame until the green peas are well cooked, then add salt and chat masala/ pudina chutney powder and cook for few min.
  • Now add potato and carrot and mix well, cook this mixture for about 10min under medium flame.
  • Finally add cilantro and turn-off the stove.
  • Now take the dough and divide in to equal parts and roll each part like disc .
  • Cut each of the disc shaped dough into half, roll each half into a cone shape and fill with potato curry and wet the edges of the cone with little water and close it.
  • repeat this steps for all samosa's.
  • Heat oil for deep for in a pan and fry these samosa's in medium flame.

Enjoy with tea or pudina chutney.
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)
Dry active Yeast-1tbsp

Add dry active yeast to the warm milk (the milk should be lukewarm i.e., when you insert your finger it should not hurt you), close with lid and keep aside for15min during which the yeast becomes active. Now take a bowl and add self rising flour, salt and sugar. Mix well. Break open egg in a s…

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.…
