My favorite Vegetable Salad

People I'm on diet, why becoz I am planning to visit India soon. So, if you are planning to visit Indian is there any rule that you should diet (You say). Yup, I used to weigh 110 pounds when I was in India, here I put on 10 pounds so I am in a process to loose some weight and get the lost haute look. Now I am concentrating more on 30min exercises and diet. Every day 15min I'll do cycling and lift 8 pounds weights 20 times in 3 sets. That's it I'm done. I just planned this because it suites my body style. Coming to the diet I am planning to eat salads and roti every day. I'm gonna do this for 30days. So friends wish me all the best and lets see if I loose any weight.

Fennel seeds/ sonf- 1/2tbsp

Add the olive oil mixture (dressing) to the vegetables and mix well. Here is your wonderful salad ready to serve. You  can serve this chilled, it makes the salad more wonderful.

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.

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.

Ingredients:
Dokla flour- 1 cup
Curd/ Yogurt-1/2cup
Turmeric-1/4 t.s
Chilli powder-1/4 t.…
