Chicken 65 & Happy friendship day wishes to all bloggywood foodies!!!!

I learnt some traditional dishes from my mother, but not very good at it. After my marriage, I came to USA last November and started cooking on my own. If I were in India my mother or mother-in-law would have helped me, but here I have to learn on my own(that's so sad!!!!!). First I used to follow youtube video's by vahchef and now I'm able to cook on my own. I love the way how he explains and explores the dish. He is always ready,  right from history of the dish under lime light to share with us. Thank you vahchef for your yummy recipes. So, now how this dish got it's name is a big question mark for every one, out of several myth's vahchef reviled the original story behind the name of the recipe. This chicken 65 originated in a military canteen in Tamilnadu(one of the state in south India) and this recipe used to be the 65th item in the menu list and every one used to order it as "chicken 65". That was a lovely story, now coming to the recipe.

Chicken cleaned and chopped to medium size cubes-1/4KG
Oil for deep fry
egg 1
pepper powder-1tbsp
salt to taste
red chili powder-1/2tbsp
Ginger garlic paste-1tbsp
Green chili-3 in number
Corn flour-1tbsp
curry leafs-1 spring
Ginger grated-1tbsp
Garlic minced-1tbsp
cilantro/coriander and onions for garnishing
lemon juice for extra flavor

Mix egg, pepper powder, little salt,ginger garlic paste, aginamoto, corn flour and chicken and deep fry the marinated chicken pieces. Keep them aside. Now take a pan and heat 2tbsp of oil and add ginger, garlic saute until raw flavor goes away, add green chili and saute it till they are completely done, then add some red color if you wish. (to prepare red color take 2tbsp of water and add 1/4pinch of color and dissolve well). Then add salt and red chili powder and mix well, cook for few minutes under simmer. Now the chicken 65 is ready to serve with lemon juice & onions.

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.…
