Pudina (Mint) coconut chutney

Pudina kobbarai /coconut chutney (pacchadi) is the is my favorite chutney after gongura chutney. I enjoy this chutney with rice/roti/idli/dosa/ even in bread sandwich. It is very simple to prepare. I'm sending this to Roti puchadi/chutney by Shrav's Culinary Concepts.

Pudina leaves-4cups
Fresh coconut shreadad-1 cup
Green chili-4 in number
Tamarind-1/2 lemon size
Cumin seeds/Jeera-1/2ts+1/2ts
Mustard seeds-1/4ts
split black gram-1/4ts
chana dal-1/2ts
Coriander seeds-1/2ts
Salt to taste
Garlic cloves-2
Whole Red chili-1


  • Wash the Pudina/ Mint leaves and keep them aside.
  • Dry roast the cumin and coriander seeds.
  • Heat 1 ts of oil in a skillet and fry Mint leaves in it, after the mint leaves are nicely fried take them out and keep aside.
  • Now heat 1ts of oil in the same pan and fry green chili and keep them aside.
  • Take the Mixe jar and add roasted cumin seeds + coriander seeds+ pudina + green chili.
  • To the same jar add fresh grated coconut + salt + garlic cloves and grind them finely.
  • Finally prepare tempering, take a skillet and heat 2ts of oil in it, and add cumin seeds + mustard seeds+ chana dal + black gram dal and whole red chili.
  • Add this tempering to pudina chutney, & the chutney is ready to serve.
Hope you all like my recipe, for the better taste use kitchen mortar (rokali/kalwam) and grind the chutney coarsely.

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

Self rising flour-3cups(When 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.…
