semiya spring rolls-Great idea with leftovers

Semiya is Indian Vermicelli made of durum wheat, it is free of egg. Like upma this serves as an easy making breakfast in the busy mornings. You can make this in several variations. I made with mushroom and tofu. Now a days people are taking lot of care on their diet, I am sure that you will also check for the nutrition label before you eat anything. Cultivating these food habits in your daily life is very important, make sure that what ever you eat you know the consequences of it on your health. So, friends eat healthy and stay fit. But I also suggest you not be so strict on your diet, sometimes it is OK to have kind of unhealthy fatty foods. I would like to have jilabi, any time. My all sensory neurons will stop working and only olfactory (Smell) neurons will work at that time, if I'm in front of Jilebi. Don't worry if you skip your strict diet on one day. After all you should enjoy all the pleasures to your life.

Now this recipe is made from leftover semiya upma, seasoned and modified. I already posted the recipe of upma on this blog you can click here to find it.

Spring roll sheets-6
Mushrooms chopped-1cup
Onion finely chopped-1/4cup
Lemon juice-2tbsp
oil-2tbsp and for deep fry.
Mix 2tbsp of all purpose flour with 2tbsp of water.


Heat 2tbsp of oil in a pan and add onions. When the onions are tender add mushrooms and keep sauteing them till they are well cooked. Then add leftover semiya/vermicelli. Mix well and turn off the stove. Now take the spring roll sheets, put one tbsp of semiyo on one corner and start rolling. stick the edge of the spring roll with maida/All purpose flour paste. Heat oil for deep fry in a pan and fry them under medium flame. Enjoy with tomato ketchup/green chutney.

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. 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

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.…
