Spinach and Chickpea curry

Chickpeas with spinach is the wonderful combo for the naan/rice. I made this curry for the first time. These chick peas are available in many varities I would prefer white large chickpeas (Senagalu) for this recipe. If you are planning to prepare this curry you should plan a day before, because you have to soak the dry chickpeas overnight. If you have canned chickpeas, you can just wash and use instantly.

Spinach washed and chopped-3cups
Tomato chopped-1 cup
onion-1/2cup chopped
Ginger-1 inch
Green chili-2
Red chili powder-1/2tbsp
Salt to taste
Mustard seeds-1/2tbsp
Cumin seeds-1/2tbsp
Red chili-1
Curry leaf- 1 spring(Optional)

Heat oil in a pan and add cumin seeds and mustard seeds when they splatter add red chili and saute. Add onion, turmeric, curry leaf and cook till it is tender, meanwhile grind tomatoes, ginger and green chili add this mixture to onion. Close the pan with the lid, cook till the oil leaves the curry from sides. The add spinach and cook till it is well done. Then add chickpeas,1/2 cup water and mix well. Finally add red chili powder and salt to taste and mix well. Check for taste and cook well.

Enjoy this curry with roti/naan/rice. 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.…
