Egg butter masala

Panner/cottage cheese butter masala is my favorite curry, but having it frequently is not good for health, so I have got an idea to replace panner with boiled egg and I call this curry as Egg butter masala. Panner is high in calorific value so, many people who have calorie conscious keep avoiding this curry though they carve for it!
here is the simple recipe just replace panner with boiled egg and I bet you will love it!
Boiled eggs-5( if you want to make with panner you will need Paneer/tofu -1 block, appx.2 cups of cubes)
Onion - 1 medium-sized one, chopped fine
Ginger-1 inch
garlic cloves - 2
Sesame seeds-3ts
Coconut milk-1/2cup
Tamarind- half lemon size
Green peas-1/4cup
Dhania powder/malli podi/Coriander powder - 1 tbsp
Cumin powder-1/2ts
Garam masala - 1 tsp
Red chilli powder - 1 tsp
Tomato paste- 1 tbsp (or 1 tomato, pureed)
Kasuri methi/dried fenugreek leaves - 1 generous pinch
cumin seeds-few
cinnamon stick-1 small
bay leaf-1 big
Butter-1/2 stick
Cream - 2ts
Oil - 3 tbsp
Salt - to taste

  • Boil and remove shell from the egg and keep them side.
  • Prepare the masala paste by grinding together tamarind+ sesame+ coriander powder+ cumin powder+ginger+ garlic+ kasuri methi. ( add little water while grinding, and make a fine paste).
  • Now take a pan and melt butter add bay leaf, cumin seeds, cinnamon stick, and saute it.
  • Add onions + geen peas and cook until onion turn transparent and add turmeric.
  • Add tomato puree and little water and cook until raw flavor of tomato disappears.
  • Now add the prepared masala + salt + red chili powder+ coconut milk and cream and cook for a while. Add water if required.
  • Finally add eggs  (you can dice the egg white like panner cubes / just maketwo half's  and add)
  • Add little garam masala at the end and garnish with cilantro.
The very rich masaladar and creamy egg butter masala is ready to serve. you can enjoy this with bagara/ biryani/ rice/roti.

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

Self rising flour-3cups(When measured with 160ml cup)
Salt-1/4tea spoon
Butter-1 cup(melted and measured with 160ml cup)

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.…
