Black eyed Peas and Kidney Beans Salad

Salads are very comforting and filling food. It is a healthy recipe. I love having this salad at any time. This was told by one of my friends who lives in California. She said this recipe with black eyed peas and I just included kidney beans to make it real healthy. "Too much of anything is too bad". Yes, this saying is true, you might be wondering why I quoted it! I quoted it to say that too much of having any raw kind of salad is not good to health. Have a cup daily. Now coming to recipe

Black eyed peas-1/2cup
Kindey beans(Rajma)-1/2cup
Mustard(Salad Dresser, choose the flavor you like)-1/4tbsp
Pepper powder-1/4tbsp
Salt to taste
Carrot shredded-1/4cup
Onions finely chopped-1/4cup

Soak black eyed peas and rajma atleast for 6hrs and cook them. Now take a mixing bowl and add all the ingredients and mix well. Now the salad is ready to serve. It tastes delicious. Hope you like my recipe.

    I did double the receipe and added more bacon for flavor!

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.

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.…
