Bakharwadi is one of the famous north Indian recipe. If you are among the people who love to eat sweet, hot and sourness together then this serves as a wonderful dish for you. It is a vacation time and I know lot of you will be planning for long trips and you want to make snacks that you can store for a while. Bakharwadi can be stored for a week or more, I feel it is a great picnic snack, every one can enjoy the wonderful spicy Indian flavors. We are planning for a 4 day trip shortly and I made these yummy bakharwadi's. They are simple to make, and one more thing is that you can surprise the guests/family members with this delicious treat if they are having for the first time. Most of the south Indians do not know about this recipe, so if you are a south Indian you can surprise your family with a variety twist like this. Kids will love the yummy fennel seed and sugar flavor in this recipe. I made them for the first time and got lots of compliments, you may better start trying now.

Wheat flour (generally Maida/all purpose flour is used)- 1 cup
Oil for deep fry
Salt to taste
Caramel seeds/vama-1/2 tap
For filling
Fennel seed-1tbsp
Sesame seed/till/nuvvulu-1tbsp
Coriander powder-1/2 tbsp
Cumin powder-1/4tbsp
Salt to taste
Lemon juice 2 tbsp
For dough:
In a bowl take wheat flour and add salt and caramel seeds and mix well. Then add 2 tbsp of oil and mix we'll. Add water and knead like a chapati dough. Add another tbsp of oil on top of the dough and polish the surface. Put a lid on it and let it rest for 10-15min. Meanwhile add all the filling dry ingredients mentioned  above to the hot pan and fry them at low flame for 5 min. Turn off the flame and grind it to a coarse powder by adding 2 tbsp lemon juice and keep aside.

Take the dough and divide it in to 6 equal portions. Make each of the divided part to round shape and with the help of rolling stick roll them like flat chapatis. Add 1 tbsp of filling and spread it on entire rolled dough.

Roll it inwards and cut them to 1/2 inch pieces each. Repeat this process. Now net oil in a pan at medium flame and fry these prepared bakharwadis till golden brown and take them on to paper towel to drain excess oil and store them in the air tight container for long run. Hope you like  them. Please leave your comments and suggestions.

IDLI batter became watery friends need your suggestions

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.

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