Brinjal/Egg plant/Bengan/Vankaya chutney

Brinjal is one of my favorite vegetable. I love Hyderabadi style bagara bengan. Sone are very allergic to this vegetable. I find some people who are allergic to Gongura are also allergic to brinjal. I love this chutney it smells awesome. I found this brinjal in Kroger super market near my home. It is garden grown/organic, so I felt it will  taste better than the one you get in market.

Brinjal- cubed to pieces- 1 cup
Cilantro/coriander- 1/2cup
Ginger- 1  inch piece
Garlic- 4 cloves
Tomatos chopped-1/2cup
green chili-2
salt to tase
cumin seeds few
coriander powder-1/2ts
red chili powder-1/2ts
Chana dal-1tbsp
vegetable oil-2tbsp
For seasoning
Cumin seeds- few
mustard seeds-few
chana dal-1/2tbsp
Red chili-1

Heat 2tbsp of oil in a pan and add brinjal saute until half cooked and remove, now add all the remaining ingredients and cook them under medium flame in a closed pan. When the tomatos are well cooked add brinjal and cook for few more minutes and turn off the stove. Now grind them into fine paste and take it into bowl. For tempering heat 1tbsp of oil in a pan and add red chili, cumin, mustard and chana dal one by one and wait till they spalatter. Now add this tempering to grind mixture and mix well. Enjoy this 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

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.…
