Garjalu/kajjikaya/gujiya

It is called in different names in different locations. We call them garjalu. It is the very simple sweet filling inside a crispy shell. Again the filling can be done using several different ingredients. Coming to recipe

Ingredients
For shell
Bombay ravva/upma ravva/souji-1cup
Maida/All purpose flour-4cups
Salt-1/2tea spoon


For coconut- pea nut filling

Dry shredded coconut-2cups
ground nuts-1/2cup
Putnalu/roasted gram dal-1/4cup
Sugar-2cups
Cardamom powder-1/2tbsp
Kismis/golden raisins-1/4cup
Cashewnut/jedipappu-1/4cup
Ghee/butter-2tbsp
Dry roast groundnut and grind it to a fine powder along with putnalu. Heat ghee in a pan and add kismis/golden raisins and roast them till they turn light brown. Then add groundnut mixture and roast until it turns light brown. Add fresh and dry coconut and roast until the raw flavor goes away. Now turn off the stove and add sugar mix well and keep aside to cool.

For coconut and souji/upma ravva filling
Dry shredded coconut-1.5cups
Fresh grated coconut-1/2cup
Sugar-2cups
Cardamom powder-1/2tbsp
Kismis/golden raisins-1/4cup
Cashewnut/jedipappu-1/4cup
Ghee/butter-2tbsp
Heat ghee in a pan and add kismis/golden raisins and roast them till they turn light brown. Then add souji and roast until it turns light brown. Add fresh and dry coconut and roast until the raw flavor goes away. Now turn
off the stove and add sugar mix well and keep aside to cool.

Final method for making garjalu
Take maida and souji in a bowl and add salt. Knead like a chapati dough by adding water. keep this aside for 1hr and then divide the dough into small equal parts. Each part should be a cherry size. Now roll each ball like roti and place the filling at the center which you have already prepared. Now apply water on the edges which makes them to bind easily. Fold the dough as shown and press the edges tightly. Heat oil enough for deep fry and fry them under medium flame. You can fry 5 at a time. Serve hot. They can remain good for 15days or more.

Hope you like my recipe.

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.

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.

Ingredients:
Dokla flour- 1 cup
Curd/ Yogurt-1/2cup
Turmeric-1/4 t.s
Chilli powder-1/4 t.…
