Sweet Paratha with toor dal (Kandi pappu Bobbattu)

For this ugadi I made puran poli and bobattu with toor dal (Click here for Moong dal Version). I already shared Puran poli/Pappu purnam recipe(CLick here for recipe) with you, and now it is time to share Bobattu recipe. My mother used to prepare this for sure on every ugadi, making these kind of traditional recipes and having them will not only make us to follow our traditions, they will also evoke the beautiful memories bound with them. I would like to give the same tradition and culture to kids that my mother gave me (When I have kids though ).

For inner stuff (Purnam):
Jaggery (grated)/ Sugar -1 Cup
Toor dal (kandi pappu) / chana dal cooked -1 cup
Elachi (Cardamom) powder (Tip: grind by adding 2 spoons of sugar) -1/4 tea spoon.

For Chapati :
Maida - 1 cup
Rice flour -2 tea spoons
Sujii/ bombay ravva/ Upma ravva - 1 table spoon
water- 1 cup
salt - to taste
Plastic cover (Zip lock bag/ Aluminium foil)--->surface to roll the dough.
  1. Soak toor dal for about an hour and cook it in pressure cooker for 4 whistles.
  2. Jaggery + Dal + Elachi powder--> Grinder/ processor---> smooth paste
  3. 2 tbl spoon oil + all flours + salt ---> Mix well--->make like chapati dough (wait for 10min)
  4. Take a lemon size ball of dough--->keep some oil on plastic bag and roll the dough on the bag to make like chapati.
  5. Take a double the lemon size inner batter and wrap it with chapati. (now it should appear like boiled egg).
  6. Press gently with hand to make flat disc of DVD size.
  7. Heat pan and apply oil and fry the paratha on both sides.
  8. Serve with ghee (optional) and Enjoy with your loved ones.

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.…
