Bean salad

I make this salad quite often at my home and also when we have a huge gatherings. It makes a great appetizer. It is full of beans and finely chopped vegetables. This salad is rich in fiber and keeps you full for a longer time. You can make it to impress the mild eaters! 





Here are the ingredients
Canned mixed beans- 2 cans
Canned sweet corn- 2 cans
Finely chopped onion, green peppers, red peppers, yellow peppers, tomato( deseeded), semi ripen Mango
For dressing- zesty Italian 
Salt to taste

Preparation 
Open the cans and combine corn and beans in a colander and rinse them under cold running water. Drain all the water and add them to a big mixing bowl. Add all the chopped vegetables and add two cups of zesty Italian dressing. Add salt to taste and refrigerate at least an hour before serving. You can add or remove the vegetables based on your taste, I love adding freshly chopped cilantro and mint. 

You can make it a day ahead and refrigerate it, it tastes much better and saves most of your time on the day of party. It tastes best with the scooped salsa chips. I went for a low calorie waffle thins ( they taste average with this combo to be honest, but as I am watching my weight I had no other option).

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.…
