Taikile Khadi

Image
I remember those variety of Kadi’s which Mamama(granny) and Amma prprd and I always relished them… My last post was Taikile Chutney so I thought y not post something of tht leaf itself and made kadi…. Which is very simple and yum….   

Taikilo (cassia leaves)  are found during rainy season and there r varities made out of this leaf. JJJJJJJ


So here is Another Variety  Taikile Kadi First prepare Taikile  Chutney. The recipe is HERE. Then add water to liquidize it (don’t make it too watery) Add salt if required as we add salt to the chutney already J. Now boil this well until u get 2 bubble boil. Heat A tbsp ghee or Oil. Add crushed Garlic ( I add lots as I love Garlic) and fry until done . Now temper it on the Kadi Serve with Hot Rice.




Tastes Yum Yum  when u add lozza love in it.

Paneer Butter masala to relish with hot Phulka's

Image
Its been long time since both of these ver in my blog…. But I cudn post them with one or the other reason… I guess its ryt time now….
I m not a big fan of Paneer as of mushrooms but one fine day as I was curdling milk for rasmalai I realized there was some extra paneer and did not want to waste it so I made paneer butter masala. And when matter comes to phulkas I m very bad at rolling them round and if tht happens they wont fluff like a bubbly…. And when I was in doha I had electric coils but not gas stove…. And there I saw this way of making phulkas and tried it… and it turned to be a supe success… I continued this method until I was there…. And now I can proudly say m good at making phulkas…. Nd now I roll them far better than before J


1 cup Wheat Flour
Salt to taste
sugar ½ tsp
water to mix
Flour for dusting
Method: 
Mix well the flour, sugar and salt. Start adding water till you get soft pliable dough. Knead well for 5 minutes. It will become smooth. Rest the dough for 30 minutes. Again…

The making of pav was a super flop twice so I decided to borrow yeast from one of my friend who is good at baking…. I loved tht yeast and it gave me delicious Bread…I got to know now which brand was it and let u all know.  It just fluffed like a darling and I enjoyed making the bread and we enjoyed the bread with bhaji (instead of Pav).
