Kheera pickle(keera dosakaya) and Garnier fructis coupon link

Today I was craving for Indian cucumber. I used to have it weekly once when I was in India. It one of my favorite vegetable, it is called dosakaya In our language. It tastes like kheera but it is little sour. I love having this pickle with hot white rice and mudda pappu. Since I cannot get Indian cucumber over here I made an experiment with kheera, it is a grand success. My hubby loved it too.

Kheera(cucumber) 1 pealed and sliced
Cumin powder 1/2 tbsp
Coriander powder 1 tbsp
Salt to taste
Red chili powder 1/2 tbsp
Ginger garlic paste 1/2 tbsp
Fenugreek seed powder( menthu) - 1/4 tbsp
Lemon juice 2 tbsp
For tempering
Oil 4 tbsp
Mustard( avalu)- 1tbsp
Cumin seeds( jeera)-1tbsp
Garlic cloves 2
Red chili 1

Mix all the ingredients together including cucumber. Now prepare tempering. Heat oil on a pan and add mustard seeds and allow them to splatter then add cumin seeds and with until they splatter. Now add red chili and garlic cloves. Wait until they turn golden brown. Turn off the stove and add curry leafs(optional) and mix well. Allow this tempering(talimpu) to cool down to room temperature and mix with the cucumber mixture. Add 2 tbsp of lemon juice and mix well. You can serve this pickle after an hour. Hope you like my recipe.

IDLI batter became watery friends need your suggestions

We can play with the bread bun recipe. Every one has their own version of making them.

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.…
