potato bajji instant Indian snacks

This recipe is for 2
Potato 1 big-pealed
Gram flour-2tbsp
Rice flour-1tbsp
red chili powder-1/2tea spoon
salt to taste
Ajwain/ Vama-1/2tbsp
Oil for deep fry

Peal and wash potato. Choose a thin blade slicer(If you have mandolin slicer it is well and good). Slice the potato to very thin pieces. Now take a bowel and add all the ingredients and mix well. add 1tbsp of water and mix well. To this mixture add all thinly sliced potato pieces and mix care fully. Now heat a thick bottom deep pan. Pour enough oil for deep fry and heat it under medium flame. Add one by one potato piece and deep fry till it is golden brown. Take them out and place them on a paper towel so that excess oil gets absorbed. These bajji will be crispy only when they are fried under medium flame, this is the healthy way of frying the vegges. Under high flame there is a chance of converting fatty acides to cis for to the trans, which is very dangerous. And another advantage of cooking them under medium flame is they will cook completely. The crispness of the chips also depends on how thin you slice them, thinner the slices more crispy they come!!!

Here is the list of the cooking oil that you can use for different purposes.

Oils that are suitable for high-temperature frying (above 230 °C/446 °F) because of their high smoke point
  • Avocado oil
  • Corn oil
  • Mustard oil
  • Palm oil
  • Peanut oil (or groundnut oil)
  • Rice bran oil
  • Safflower oil
  • Sesame oil (semi-refined)
  • Soybean oil
  • Sunflower oil
Oils that are suitable for medium-temperature frying (above 190 °C/374 °F) include:
  • Almond oil
  • Cottonseed oil
  • Diacylglycerol (DAG) oil
  • Ghee, Clarified butter
  • Grape seed oil
  • Lard
  • Olive oil (Virgin, and refined)
  • Rapeseed oil (Canola oil or "vegetable oil" )
  • Mustard oil
  • Walnut oil
Hope you find this infromation usefull!!!!

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.

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.…
