Tofu and French cut beans stir fry

This is the first time I experiment with tofu. I tried many times finding it in grocery stores like Walmart and Kroger, but never found it. Few days back I found it in the vegetable section at Walmart and with out a anther thought I just grabbed two packets. I recommend you use extra firm tofu for this preparation.

Tofu -cubed 1/2 cup
French cut beans 3 cups
Oil 1 tbsp
Fresh grated coconut /dry powder-2tbsp
Ginger garlic paste -1/2 tbsp
Red chili powder 1/2 tbsp
Salt to taste
Coriander powder 1/2tbsp
Curry leaf 1 rib optional
Onion chopped 1/2 cup
Green chili-1
Mustard seeds 1-2 tbsp
Cumin seeds 1/2 tbsp
Urad dal 1 tbsp
Chana dal 1 tbsp
Turmeric pinch

Heat oil in a skillet and add mustard seeds, cumin seeds, urad dal and Chana dal. When they turn golden brown add green chili, onion and curry leaf and sauté till onion is tender. Then add ginger garlic paste and turmeric and cook till raw flavor goes away. Add beans , some salt and cook it till they are well cooked by closing the pan with lid. Then add tofu and fry it well. Add fresh coconut, red chili powder and coriander powder, mix well. Cook under medium flame for 5 min with out closing the pan. Now the curry is ready to serve. It goes well with plain rice or roti.

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.…
