Pindi chole recipe | Pindi chana recipe

pindi chole

Pindi chole | Pindi chana is a popular one in Punjabi cuisine generally served with bhatura or Kulchas or pooris. When i came to Singapore 8 years back, i bought a ready to eat pindi chole masala of some popular brand. And it tasted horrible and i discarded it immediately after the first bite. Later after many years, i tried this at home but still not convinced by the output. Last week when i was again browsing for pindi chole recipes, got hooked up with this recipe by Vah chef and tried at home yesterday. It was a huge hit recipe at home. It tasted like the pindi chole which is served in restaurants. Will post the recipe of bhatura soon. Check out my

Mochai and Potato curry | Mochai urulai kara curry

mochai potato curry

Mochai |field beans and potato is a match made in heaven. Even the combo of brinjal and mochai is also will be awesome. Last year itself i wanted to post this curry but somehow couldn't make it. Few days back when i went to little india, i found the fresh mochai |pacha mochai (called as field beans) I have already posted mochai sundal and mochai brinjal kara kuzhambu, but both recipes are using dried mochai. Thsi curry i have tasted many times from our neighbour aunty's house in madurai. Again called her up and confirmed the recipe with her. In the original recipe, she mentioned to add whole garlic before adding the onions. But since mine were too big, i didn't add. If you have the small garlic with you add it whole , without chopping it.

Kharabath recipe | MTR style kharabath recipe

MTR style kharabath

Kharabath is a popular breakfast of Karnataka. I have heard about this through my friends many times, but never tasted the authentic Kharabath which is served in MTR restaurant. Few weeks back a reader asked me for this recipe and it so happened for me to visit the MTR restaurant here the next week. I ordered for the kharabath and it tasted very nice. It is similar to the rava kichidi but red chili powder was added instead of green chilies. Also it was loaded with ghee. The next day i called up my friend who is a native of bengaluru and living in Australia now. She told me few tips on this Kharabath recipe. Do try this recipe at home and let me know the feedback.

Hyderabadi Dum Biryani | Veg Dum biryani

Hyderabadi dum biryani
Hyderabadi Dum  Biryani is a popular one in Mughlai cusine. Actually it is popular for the non veg versio. I wanted to try the Hyderabadi Veg Dum biryani for quite a while but i somehow keep on postponing it. During our December trip to Chennai, happened to eat the Veg dum biryani at Cream center chennai and i got hooked with the taste of it. From then the urge to try it was more. Last weekend when my sister, told me that she tried Dum biryani for Sunday lunch and later shared with me the pictures too. I immediately decided to give it a try and tried it on the Republic day as kids were around on that day. I must say it is a bit lengthly procedure compared to the Pressure cooker biryani, but it is worth trying. Generally i am a kind of person who never gets satisfied with my work, though everyone at home says it was awesome !!. Very rarely i pat myself, wow you did a good job. This Hyderabadi Dum biryani is one among the "wow", that i was telling appreciating myself a lot. Do try this at home this weekend and let me know the feedback.

Maravalli Kizhangu Chips | Tapioca Chips recipe

Home made kuchi chips recipe

Tapioca chips
Maravalli kizhangu| Tapiaco | Kappa|Cassava chips is a popular one in Kerala. I still remember eating kuchi chips during my childhood days more than potato chips. This chips we used to get everywhere easily and also in the pack of 250 grams it will be many as compared to the potato chips. But i never remember amma or paati making this at home. Only Vazhakkai chips is made at home so often as we have many vazhai maram at home. .As it is now the season of this maravalli kezhangu, my sister was insisting me to make something out of this. So i tried the kuchi chips which is one of my personal favorite. Only peeling the skin of the tapioca was bit difficult, other than that, the making of this chips at home was so easy. But my helper later told me there is an easy way to peel the skin and showed it to me. I will take the video of it next time and update it here. The chips can be served as a teatime snack or can be served with  rice too.
