MIrchi ka salan- Best combination for Biryani Hyderabadi style

Green chili curry or Mirchi ka salan is very famous recipe in Hyderabad. It is a must for any dinner parties. Biryani is not complete with out it. I love this salan very much as it is easy to prepare and delicious in taste. Generally it is prepared with long finger peppers/ green chili that are available in India, they do not contain much heat. But here jalapenos are very very hot, I cried first time when I cut them. So please do not make this recipe with jalapenos. Serrano peppers are much better than jalapenos.

Coming to recipe
green chili/Mirchi- Finger peppers/Serrano pepper's -10
Vegetable oil-3tbsp
Salt to taste
Ground nut/pea nuts roasted-1/2cup
sesame/till/nuvvulu- 1tbsp
Red chili powder-1tbsp
cashew nuts-5 soaked in water for atleast 15min
coriander seeds-1tbsp roasted
cumin seeds-1/2tbsp roasted
Ginger-1tbsp chopped
Garlic cloves-4
tamarind pulp-2tbsp
Fenugreek/menthulu -dry roasted-1/2tbsp
Onions chopped-1 cup
Cilantro/coriander chopped-2tbsp

First grind Pea nuts+cashew nuts+ fenugreek  seeds+  red chili powder+salt+coriander seeds+ cumin seeds to form a fine paste with some tamarind pulp. Keep it aside. Now take the green chili and slit on one side and remove seeds. Heat 2tbsp of oil in a pan and fry these green chili until they become golden brown and take them in to plate and keep aside. Now add one tbsp of oil into same pan and add onions and fry them until they turn tender. Then add the grind-ed powder and cook well by adding water to required consistency. Cook this mixture by closing the lid under medium flame for about 10min, you will see the oil leaving the curry on the top. that means the curry is ready now finally add roasted green chili and garnish with cilantro. The curry is ready to serve.

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)

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.…
