Home made salsa recipe

Salsa is a kind of dip/sauce a very famous and healthy Mexican food. I am a vegetarian, it is really hard to find the vegetarian food in Kentucky. I really had a bad experience in one china restaurant "East meets West", that day when I have been there, they arranged a buffet system. That means we have to serve our self and the meals will be placed at one place. My hubby is non vegetarian and he served what he like and sat on a table waiting for me. I went there and I was really confused with the vegetarian food and non vegetarian. In noodles I saw a shrimp, when I asked the server he said it was vegetarian noodles but some one by mistake would have thrown that in noodles. My God!!! that was really horrible, because the noodles was only food that are vegetarian in that restaurant. I will never visit that restaurant again. One fine day my hubby took me to Mexican restaurant and I found really good vegetarian dishes there, they first served Salsa with triangles. Wow that was fabulous. From then that became my favorite. Enough of the story and now let's see the preparation.

Fresh tomato puree-1 cup( just take fresh tomatoes and grind them to paste)
green chili- different chili have different heat so take depending on the heat you want(Finger peppers-1 or jalapenos-1/2 or Indian green chili-2 in number)
Garlic cloves- 3
Salt to taste
Finely chopped onions-1/4 cup
Finely chopped cilantro-10 springs
Lemon juice-1/2 lemon full squeezed out
Vinegar- 1tbsp
Pepper powder-1/4tbsp

Take tomato puree in a bowl. Grind green chili, little salt and garlic cloves in a hand grinder and add it to the tomato puree. Add cilantro, onions, lemon juice, vinegar, pepper powder and salt to taste. Mix well and serve with tortilla triangles.

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.…
