French style green beans in Indian style

French style beans are my hubby's favorite. Most of them will have them just by boiling them in the salt water and season with the spices they wish. I love having them in any way. Though it belong to beans family, it taste unique. I can just eat the curry with out rice/roti. French style beans are little thin compared to regular beans and they cook very fast. Now coming to Indian style recipe.

French style beans: 2 cups(350grms)

Chopped onions-1/4cup
Green chillies-2
chopped cilantro-2t.s
dry coconut powder -2ts
Cumin seeds-1/2ts
Mustard seeds-1/2ts
Chana dal-1ts
Urad dal-1ts
Salt to taste
Chili powder-1/2t.s
Tomato-1/2cup chopped
Red chili-1
vegetable oil-2ts

Heat 2ts of oil in non stick pan and add cumin + mustard + chana + urad dal+ red chili and wait until they splutter. Add onions and green chili and saute until they the onions become transparent. Add turmeric and cook for few min and add beans & tomato and cook in a closed pan under medium flame. Saute in between. Cook until they are done. Add red chili powder, salt, dry coconut powder and cook for few more minutes and turn off the stove. Finally garnish with cilantro and the yummy curry is ready to serve. Goes well with rice/roti.

Notice: Do not add ginger garlic paste/coriander/cumin powder. I tried it last time, it didn't taste better. If you cook this way the flavor of beans will retain and you can enjoy 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.…
