Tea Time Lemon Bread/Cake

Bread and cake both are my favorite. This is the combination of both. It tastes like cake and looks like bread. I feel this is the best combination for tea. It can also be served as a evening snack for kids. They will enjoy it for sure. The tangy lemon flavor and orange juice gives it a fresh and yummy taste.

All purpose flour-2cups(when measured with 200ml container)
Milk- as required
salt pinch
Baking powder-1/2tbsp
Lemon zest-1tbsp
Orange juice-1/4cup
Golden raisins (optional)

Take two bowl's. In one bowl break open egg and add sugar, melted butter, milk, lemon zest, orange juice and mix well. Now in another bowl take all purpose flour(Maida) , salt and baking powder and mix well. Now add this mixture to the egg mixture while stirring slowly. Mix well. Finally add golden raisins and just give a gentle stir. Pre heat the oven at 350F. Take a baking loaf pan ( 8 1/2 x 4 1/2 x 2 1/2) spray it with baking spray or coat it with oil and dust with flour.  Transfer the bread mixture in to baking pan and bake for 30-40min at 350F. Insert tooth pick and when it comes out clean then it is done. Take the baking tray out of oven and let it cool for 5min then  slice it and enjoy.

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.…
