Methi leaves a good for health and aloo methi combination rocks. Punjab is one of the northern state in India. This curry style originated from that place so the name.

green chili-1( jalapeno) sliced
Salt to taste

Remove extra fat from chicken and cut it to medium size pieces. Remove skin from drum sticks and make deep cuts. Wash them and allow water to drain completely. Now take a wide mouth skillet and heat oil in it. Add cumin seeds and when they start splattering add onions and green chili. when the onion turn tender add ginger, garlic, salt and turmeric and saute till raw flavor goes off. Then add Potatoes and mix well. cook by closing the vessel for 2min and keep sauteing in between. Then add coriander powder, cumin powder, curd, coconut powder and 1/2cup water and mix well. Let this cook under medium flame for 2min by closing the vessel. Now add chicken mix well and add more water if required and cook till chicken is completely cooked under medium flame. It takes about 15min to completely cook the chicken. When the chicken is done add methi leaves,and garam masala. Mix well and cook it under medium flame.

IDLI batter became watery friends need your suggestions

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.…
