Tomato Capsicum Bath with Chicken Broth in Rice cooker

I am really addicted to the Mexican recipes these days. Few days back I tried Mexican rice and they turned awesome, now I just tried the same recipe in Indian style. From past month I have been making one pot meals for my hubbys lunch box, which are very simple and delicious recipes. Similarly, I tried this today, and just now I got a phone call my hubby telling that the rice is fantastic!!! This is the best compliment that I have ever heard from my hubby, he is a bit inexpressive tells about the recipes unless you ask him!! But today to my surprise he called and told me about it!!!:) Now stories apart coming to the recipe..

Long Grain rice(Available in all most all grocery stores)- 3cups
salt to taste
Chicken Broth-4 cups
Capsicum finely chopped-1/4cup
Cilantro/coriander-10 springs chopped
Green peas-1/8 cup
Tomato puree-1/2cup
Green chili-2
cinnamon-1 inch stick
Bay leaf-1
Pudina powder-1/2tbsp(or fresh pudina leaves/Mint leaves)
Butter/ Olive oil-2tbsp

Wash rice and add chicken broth, water and salt (remember chicken broth already contains salt so better be careful). Now take a skillet and add butter/olive oil and heat it. Add cumin seeds, mustard seeds and allow them to splatter. Then add cardamom, cinnamon, cloves and bay leaf, saute under medium flame. Then add onion, green chili and cook till the onion turn tender. Then add capsicum and green peas, saute for 1min(Do not over cook capsicum as they will cook well along with rice). Finally add tomato puree, pudina powder, coriander and cook till the raw flavor of tomato goes away. Shift this mixture in to the rice bowl and cook like you cook normal rice.

Finally you can squeeze some lemon juice on the top, if you like tangy flavor. You can also add garlic in the seasoning if you wish.

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.…
