Spinach and Moong dal Curry

Spinach is my favorite leafy vegetable loaded with lot of vitamins and minerals. I love having spinach in the form of curry/dal. This recipe is not dal but curry, however it calls for moong dal.

Moong dal:-1/2cup
Spinach/palakura-2cups (Washed and cut)
Chopped onions-1/4cup
Green chillies-2
chopped cilantro-2t.s
garlic- chopped-1ts
dry coconut powder -2ts
Cumin seeds-1/2ts
Mustard seeds-1/2ts
Chana dal-1ts
Salt to taste
Chili powder-1/2t.s
Red chili-1
vegetable oil-2ts
Semi-cook moong dal, filter and keep aside. Now heat 2ts of oil in non stick pan and add cumin + mustard + chana + moog  dal+ red chili and wait until they splutter. Add onions and spring onions + Garlic and saute until they the onions become transparent. Add turmeric and cook for few min and add spinach. Close the lid if you want to retain the color of the spinach always cook in open vessel.  When the spinach is completely cooked add Moong dal and cook until it is cooked but its structure remain intact. Add Salt and red chili powder to taste and cook for few more minutes under simmer. Now the yummy curry is ready to serve it goes fine with 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. 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.…
