Vada with left over Idli batter- Andhra punugulu

It's rainy season in India, I wish I was there. I love having chaat/ deep fry foods in this season. I remember during my bachelors when I fish my college, me with my  gang used to rush to have street food. I don't know why? but, how many times I prepare this chaat a fresh in my home I will not get street taste. When I pose this Question to my mother she will say that street food is untidy, may be you find it tasty because of street dust in it (hehe!!! just kidding) but i love street food, I'm missing it!

Now coming to the recipe
Left over Idli batter (for recipe CLICK HERE)-3cups
Onions finely sliced-1/2cup
salt to taste
baking Powder-1/2ts

Heat enough oil in a pan for deep fry. Mix all the ingredients and take small dumplings with hand and drop them in oil, fry them till they attain golden brown color.

Enjoy this rainy season with cup of tae and wonderful snack.

    Thats a good idea! I think I can try leftover dosa batter too, or will it be more runny? I dont make idli at home ..
    Have a nice day

  5. Looks tempting & a good way to finish off leftover idlis...Do nthey absorb too much oil when frying..?? I always assumed so & never tried it out tho someone had suggested this..:)

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)
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.…
