Black eyed peas and Split green gram Burger patties

I love this recipe for green gram and black eyed peas patties because its easy to make as well as tasty, two of my favorite qualities in a recipe! They aren't quite firm enough to toss grill, but are good for and very nutritious.

  • 1/2 cup dry split green gram
  • 1/2cup black eye peas
  • 2 carrots grated
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 2 slices bread, crumbled
  • 1 tbsp of freshly chopped garlic
  • 10 springs of cilantro/parsely/coriander  chopped
  • 1/4cup finely chopped onion
  • 1/2 tsp seasoned salt
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • oil for frying
  • Amchur powder/chat masala---optional


Soak beans over night and cook them in a cooker, for 2 whistles. Cook them fine but keep an eye on it so that it may not turn mushy. Filter all water after cooking and dry them on a paper towel.
Sautee the onions and garlic till soft, about 3-5 minutes in 1tbsp of oil. In a large bowl, mash the beans until almost smooth(Let the some beans remain intact). Add sauteed onions and the rest of the ingredients, except the oil, adding the flour a few tablespoons at a time to combine well. Mixture will be thick.

Form bean mixture into patties, approximately ½ inch thick. Take plain flour in a bowl and dust the patties with flour and  fry patties in a small amount of oil until slightly firm.
Make veggie burgers with your favorite vegges, I made them with slice of tomato, onion and american cheese, mayo and mustard!
enjoy!!! :)

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.…
