Kidney beans, Black eye peas & vegetables Healthy soup

Yesterday I made this yummy soup for dinner. This smells awesome and tastes delicious. Apart from haing excellent smell and taste we have to look at the another important and intresting feature of this recipe. It is healthy and can be had with roti(Indian Bread) or Bread or Rolls. We had with toasted white bread. You can also have this soup with out any bread. You can modify this recipe to your taste, that is you can add more spices or reduce the spices and cook. You can even choose your favorite vegges also. That is why I like this soup a lot. Try it and you will ike it for sure.

Kidney beans 1/2 cup
Black eye peas-1/2cup
water as required
carrot-1 medium size sliced
Tomato-1 medium size schopped
Cauliflower/broccili-1/2cup florets
Green chili-2
salt to taste

I am making the mild spicy version of this recipe. you can prepare it to you taste by reducing or increasing the amout of ingredients. Wash and soak Kidney beans and Black eye peas for about 4-6hrs.
Now take a pressure cooker and add Kidney beans, black eye peas, chili, carrot, tomato, cauliflower and cook it for 3 whistles by adding required amout of salt. When all the pressure escapes from the cooker open it and mix well with spoon. Serve hot.

For more spicy version
Prepere tempering (talimpu/thadka). For this heat 2tbsp of oil in a pan and add 1tbsp of cumin seeds and 1/2tbsp of fresh garlic crushed. When the garlic turns golden brown mix with the cooked soup. You can also add 1/4tbsp cumin powder and 1/4tbsp of coriander powder and cook it again.

Garnish with coriander/cilantro and serve hot.

Hope you like my recipe.

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

Makes 8 medium size buns
Self rising flour-3cups(When measured with 160ml cup)
Salt-1/4tea spoon
Butter-1 cup(melted and measured with 160ml cup)
Egg-1+1 for wash (coat on surface of unbaked bun)
Dry active Yeast-1tbsp

Add dry active yeast to the warm milk (the milk should be lukewarm i.e., when you insert your finger it should not hurt you), close with lid and keep aside for15min during which the yeast becomes active. Now take a bowl and add self rising flour, salt and sugar. Mix well. Break open egg in a s…

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.…
