sunnunda- Urad dal Andhra Pradesh Laddu-Happy Diwali

Sunni vunda/Sunnunda is Andhra Pradesh's famous laddu. It is very simple and you can just prepare it instantly. It is considered as the energy food. My grand mother used to say that it is must for the kids and teenagers. Generally Kids and teenagers are more prone to hunger than the middle age and old age people. This is because they require lot more energy to built muscles, bones etc.,for this deepavali you can prepare this laddu and enjoy with your family members.
Split Urad dal-1 cup
cardamom/elachi cloves-3

Dry roast urad dal till it is about to turn golden brown. Grind it to a fine powder and sieve(Jallada) it. Take the sieved fine powder in a mixing bowl. Grind sugar and cardamom seeds together and add this powder to the urad dal fine powder. Mix well and add ghee. Do not add all ghee at a time, first add half cup and mix well. Try to make a laddu shape by taking hand full of batter in your hand and pressing it hard to make it into a round shape. If you are able to get hard laddu, (that is it should not break if you pinch it slowly) then stop adding ghee and continue making laddus. If not add ghee and make laddus till you get the right consistency. The nice aroma of cardamom when mixed with ghee and urad dal makes this laddu perfect festival treat. For the working women I think this will the best choice to make instantly for this diwali. Wish you all very happy and safe diwali.

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)

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.…
