Sweet Potato curry Puffs

Sweet potatoes are the excellent source of vitamins and nutrients. These sweet potatoes come in several different varieties viz yellow, Orange & purple etc., Orange sweet potato is some times called as Yam in North America. While browsing in the Internet I found out that it serves as a great food for the type-2 diabetes patients. It will induce the production of insulin to certain extent. Apart from this it contains fiber which is a major health beneficiary.

In India sweet potatoes are had during the long fasting hours for instant energy. In villages I remember my grand mother used to grill them on a direct flame, and later serve by removing the skin and seasoned with salt. These are cooked in many different varieties all over the world. I am presenting you the little Indianised version of a puff pastry.

Sweet potato-1big
Onion finely chopped-1cup
Green chili finely chopped-1/2tbsp
Curry leafs-finely chopped-10 leaves
Salt to taste
Pepper powder to taste
chat masala-1/4tbsp(optional) or Amchur powder/dry mango powder-pinch(optional)
Lemon juice-2tbsp
mustard seeds-1/4tbsp
cumin seeds-1/4tbsp
Puff pastry sheet-1 (makes 6 puffs)

Cook sweet potato with little salt. Peal skin and mash it. Now heat 2tbsp of oil in a pan and add mustard seeds and cumin seeds. When they splatter add onion,curry leaf, salt, pepper powder, chat masala and green chili. When they are cooked finely add mashed sweet potato and mix well. Then add lemon juice and mix well. Turn off the stove and let the mixture come to room temperature.

Take the pastry sheet out of the pack and wait till it comes to room temperature. Unroll the pastry sheet and cut it into six equal pieces. Place the curry in every sheet and close it. Pre heat the oven to 400F. Mean while place the puffs in the refrigerator for 5min and bake for 20-25min. Till puffs are golden brown. Enjoy these puffs with tomato sauce.

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.…
