Andhra Gongura Pacchadi/ chutney and ONE USEFUL BLOGGER NOTE-Favicon

Gongura! is flavorful and tangy leafy vegetable, mostly available in south India especially Andhra. I love this chutney very much, because of its tangy taste. Just with chutney I can finish the full bowl of rice. Few days back I got it in Indian grocery store I already made Gongura and chanadal curry and now I made this wonderful chutney.

  • Big bunch of fresh gongura / red sorrel (wash and separate leaves from the stalks and leave them out to dry)
  • 10 whole dry red chilies (or you can use green chili)
  • 11/2ts cumin seeds
  • 11/2 tbsp coriander seeds
  • 5 garlic cloves
  • 2 tbsps oil
  • salt to taste
  • 4 tbsp oil (pickle made with red chilies needs more oil than green chilies)
  • 1 tsp mustard seeds
  • ½ tsp cumin
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 2 whole dry red chillies
  • 1 stalk of curry leaves (optional)
Onions for seasoning.

First dry roast cuimin seeds,Red chili/green chili (note: If you are using green chili roast them with 1ts of oil) and coriander seeds, and add them to mixe/ grinding jar. Now heat 2ts of oil in a pan and add gongura and saute until it changes its color and becomes mushy. Let it cook and shift this in to the grinding jar. Add salt to taste and gring this mixture well. you can add water if necessary. take the grinded mixture into a serving bowl. Now prepare the tempering/ thadka. Take a pan and heat oil add cumin+mustard+red chili+curry leaves and garlic cloves one by one and saute them until the garlic attains nice brown color. Add this tempering to the gongura chutney. Tempering/ Tadka/Talimpu gives the nice flavor to the chutney. Slice the onions to cubes and mix well with the chutney, after an hour onions become tangy and crispy. I love to have onions in this chutney. 
Hope you like my recipe :)

Did you notice the blogger edit design section. Now Blogger has updated with the new favicon edit section, you can keep the pic you prefer. 
you can keep the picture you wish to in that favicon, just have a look at the tab of my blog, you will not find the normal "blog symbol" instead you can find the "burning red chili" that is where I indicated with red circle.

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.

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.…
