Sabudana (Sago/Tapioca) Vada

This is one of the delicacies of Indian food which makes you loose control on your apatite. This was the first time I made this delicious savory, my hubby was very pleased and had them all without leaving a single bite for me, all I had was the one for the taste test. Sago is a carbohydrate and it has very little vitamins, proteins and minerals. I especially do not recommend to have sago deep fried very often because it looses most of its scarcely present vitamins when deep fried and we get nothing but the carbohydrates when we have it, but you know some times I feel it's okay to enjoy these toothsome delicacies putting aside the calorie count. 




Ingredients

Time 30min
Makes-10 vada
Serving size 5 no.'s
Sago/Sabudana- 1/2 cup after soaking (Soak 4 tbsp full of sabudana in a 250 ml water over night)
Potato pealed and grated- 1 large
green chili- finely chopped- 1/4tbsp
onion finely chopped-1/4cup
Curry leaf- finely chopped- 4 leaves
salt to taste
Rice or corn flour-2tbsp for binding
Oil for deep fry
 Tips: If you like celery you can add it after finely chopping.

Method:

Before preparation squeeze out water from all potato. Mix all the ingredients above listed and make them into a tight dough like chapati. Divide the dough into 10 equal parts and make them into small balls and press them on your palm like a vada and deep fry them under medium flame till they turn golden brown. You can enjoy this without any side, but if you wish to have a side coconut chutney or groundnut chutney or tomato chutney will go well.

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.

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.…
