Panner- Potato Tot's

Paneer is the magic ingredient which does not have any special taste on itself, but when prepared in combination with any vegetable it is a king in the recipe. For example, palak paneer the entire recipe is rich in palak but still it is worthless without the chunks of paneer. This is one of those wonderful recipe that I tried when my taste buds kept telling me try something different. Potato is also one of the magical ingredient especially for snacking, I tried every recipe with potato (Aloo, Alugadda) potato omlette, potato paniyarum,  bhajji's, bonda's, cutlet, samosa, pin wheels and curry puff's. Potato and paneer (Indian Cheese), are the best combination I tasted so far. Here is the wonderful recipe, I bet you will love it!

Makes 10 tot's and takes 30 min to cook.
For making tot's
Potato boiled and mashed-2 large
Paneer- 100 grams Crumbled with hand
oil- enough for deep fry
Green chili coarsely ground-1/2tbsp
salt to taste
cumin seeds-1/4tsp
Fresh garlic- finely chopped-1/2tbsp
Fresh ginger-finely chopped-1/2tbsp
(or you can add ginger garli cpaste-1/2tbsp)
Kasuri methi-/14tbsp (Optional)

For coating the tot's:
Maida / All purpose flour-2tbsp mixed in 5tbsp of water enough to coat the tot
Pepper powder-pinch (to mix with maida)
salt-pinch(to mix with maida)
Bread crumbs-as required (Optional, or you can just grind the fresh bread)

Mix all the above ingredients mentioned for making tot's in a big bowl. Heat oil enough for deep fry. Take a lemon size mixture in to your hand and roll it into a ball and flatten it like a cylinder. Now mix all the ingredients except bread crumbs in the coating mixture in the ingredients list. Dip the prepared tot into it and roll it onto bread crumbs and deep fry under medium flame till it turns golden brown. 
For me it tasted heavenly with the soft taste of paneer and potato inside and crispy out with bread crumb's and maida. I hope you like it too! Kindly, leave your comment before you leave, I would love to hear from you!!!!

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.…
