Muthia( Indian healthy snacks)

Muthia is new to me. This is the first time I gave a try. They came out really good. My hubby who never like to try new varieties tried this on my request and he liked it a lot. Now this snack is approved in my home and I am happy that I have got another healthy snack item in my kitchen menu that I can prepare very instantly. Muthia is similar to khandvi but it has got cabbage extra. Believe me it tastes awesome.
Without being late coming to the recipe.
This recipe will serve 2
Cabbage washed and finely chopped 2 cups
Basin/gram flour/senaga pindi- 1cup
Oil 4 tbsp divided
Salt to taste
Green chili paste 1 tbsp
Fresh Fenugreek leaves chopped 3 tbsp(or kasurimethi powder)
Cumin seeds 1/2 tbsp
Citric acid 1/4 tbsp or eno fruit salt 1/4 tbsp
Turmeric 1/8tbsp

For seasoning
Sesame seeds/ till/nuvvulu- 1tbsp
Whole red chili 2
Mustard seeds 1/2 tbsp

Mix all the ingredients together leaving the seasoning ingredients. The water in the cabbage should be enough for mixing or you can add little water if you require. The consistency of the batter should be little thicker than idli batter. Now grease the idli plates( microwave safe) and pour the batter in to the moulds and cook in microwave for 5 min and check with fork. If the fork come out clean they are done else cook for another 2 min. It took 7 min to cook my muthia. You can make them in ordinary cooker or steamer, if you are using ordinary cooker do not keep whistle on top and cook for 10-15 min like idli. Now when the muthia's are ready take them out let them cool and cut them to 4 equal parts. For seasoning heat 2 tbsp of oil in a pan and add mustard seeds when they splatter add red chili and sesame seeds when they are done cooking add Muthia and sauté them till they turn golden brown. Finally garnish with cilantro if you wish. 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. 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)
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.…
