Tomato Rice

If you are in a hurry, wanna try some quick, special, yummy and easy recipe, then this is the best one. I prepare this when my hubby gets bore with lemon rice. I feel this is the great way of using the left over rice. The rice no more looks like a left over one, they get steamed in the tomato puree and acquires and tangy and fresh flavor. Looks wonderful. Tomato bath is different from tomato rice. In tomato bath we cook the raw rice in the tomato puree where as in tomato rice we fry the cooked rice in tomato puree. 

Cooked rice-4 cups(Measured with 160ml cup)
Tomato puree- 1 cup(160ml)
Onions finely chopped-1/2cup
Cumin seeds-1/2tbsp
Green peas-1/4cup
Ginger- finely grated-1/2tbsp
Garlic- finely grated-1 tbsp
Green chili-chopped-2 big(depending on the heat you require in the rice)
Salt to taste
pepper powder-1/2tbsp
Curry leaf-5 in number(optional)
Cilantro/coriander-10 springs chopped
Bay leaf-2
Cinnamon stick-1 inch
cardamom -2 cloves
Dhaniya powder/coriander powder-1/2tbsp
oil/butter-2tbsp(I prefer butter,because it gives good flavor)


First prepare a curry paste with tomatos+Chili by grinding them together. Take a pan and add 2ts of oil/butter and heat it, to the oil add cinnamon, cloves, cardamom and bay leaves.  when all the spices get baked add onions, curry leaf, ginger,garlic,little turmeric, and green peas and fry until the onions are finely cooked. Now, add the first grinded paste coriander powder and cook until the raw flavor of tomato vanishes. Add cooked rice and mix them. close the lid and cook in simmer for 2min. Finally garnish with cilantro and the delicious dish is ready.

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.

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.…
