After many days i decided to cook something different.. And then this came to my mind.. I read the recipe in one of the cook book i have and tried it and it really turned up well...

1 cup mung daal
2 cup maida
2 spoon rava
2 tea spoons red chilli powder
1 spoon amchur(dry mango) powder
1 spoon garam masala
1 spoon saunf
1 spoon mustard
1 spoon jeera
Salt to taste
sugar to taste

  • Soak mung daal in water overnight
  • In the morning grind mung daal without water in the mixie to form a coarse mixture
  • Heat a 4-5 spoons of the oil and sputter mustard and jeera
  • Add mung daal to it and cook with cover
  • Once the mixture is little dry, add red chilli powder, masala, amchur powder, saunf, sugar and salt and stir well
  • Cook for some more time till mixture is completely dry
  • In a plate mix maida, rava and salt and add 1/2 cup of heated oil to it
  • Mix little water and prepare loose dough
  • Prepare lemon sized balls out of this dough
  • Press the ball with thumb and finger to form a cup shape
  • Add a spoon full of above cooked mung daal mixture to it and close the ball to form bigger ball
  • Press the ball with both hand to form thick plate kind of shape
  • Fry in oil on low-medium heat

Mung daal mixture should be coarse and not too watery so remove as much water as possible from mung daal before grinding it

I always relished the pudina chutney served with tandoori chicken or kababs. This is my try and it turned out quite well..

Pudina Chutney
1 cup punina leaves
2 spoon corriander leaves
2 cup curd
salt to taste

  • Grind the pundina leaves and corriander leaves in mixer
  • It will form watery paste, filter to get the pudina water
  • In a pot mix curd and salt
  • Now mix the pudina water spoon full at a time till completely mixed

Use thickest possible curd as we are anyway adding pudina water so it will be little thinner anyways

This item is a quick and delicious recipe.. Mom use to cook tomato omlette and i modified it little to get this new one :)

Tomato Corn Omelette
4 Tomatoes
1 cup sweet corn
1 cup bason
1 spoonful Rice powder
1/2 tea spoon Garlic paste
4 green chillies
1 spoon jeera
Salt to taste

  • Mix bason, rice powder and salt and keep aside
  • Crush the jeera slightly and add it to the above mixture
  • In a mixer add tomatoes, half cup corn, chillies and garlic paste and grind them to form puree
  • Add the puree to the mixture and mix well to form the uniform batter. Use little water if required
  • Add remaining corn to it and mix
  • Heat the tawa and take spread the mixture on it to form omelette
  • Cook it till the side on tawa is crispy, and cook on the other side till it turns brown
  • Serve with chutney or sauce

you can optionally add 1-2 spoons of corriander leaves in the tomato while crushing, but i served it with chutney which has corriander so i avoided it. But while serving with tomato ketchup it would taste good

Two days back when I had brownie in office i deciced that this is the item that i want to try at home.. Then i searched a lot on net for perfect (or so it sounded to me) and then combined all my results and made up mine one.. Here it is..

Choco Chip Brownie
80 gm Dark Chocolate bar
40 gm Milk Chocolate bar
1 cup butter
2 eggs
1.5 cups maida
3 spoon coca powder
1/2 cup castor sugar
1 spoon baking powder
Salt to taste

  • Put a pot with little water on heat
  • Put another pot in it such that it does not touch the bottom of the pot with water.
  • Add butter, dark chocolate bar and half of milk chocolate bar to the pot
  • Let the butter and chocolate melt compeltely and then mix them well to form chocolate syrup. Keep aside to cool down a bit
  • Beat eggs in a pot and mix the castor sugar in it. Mix well
  • Add prepared chocolate syrup to this mixture and again mix well
  • Sieve maida, baking powder and coca powder together around 8-10 times to form properly mixed flour
  • Add this flour to the mixture prepared earlier spoon by spoon with stirring and mixing it well
  • Cut remaining milk chocolate pieces into small pieces and add them to the mixture
  • Preheat the oven at 180C
  • Grease the baking tray with butter and put a butter paper
  • Add the mixture to this baking tray and level out the surface
  • Bake for around 30-35 minutes in oven (convection mode) at 180C
  • While serving reheat the brownie in microwave and serve with ice-cream and chocolate sauce if you like

Maida and coca mixing together took longer time.. i had to sieve it 10 times to get the properly mixed flour.
You can add walnut pieces to the same mixture and get walnut brownie

Bread roll is one of the simplest and yet tasties item one can have in snacks.. And yesterday when piyush visited us I thought this would be the best breakfast recipe i can serve with no preparation from my side at all... Here is how i prepared it...

Bread Rolls
2 Potatoes
6 slices of bread
1 spoon jeera powder
1 spoon red chilli powder
1 spoon corriander powder
2 spoon Amchur Powder(Dry Mango)
Salt to taste
Oil to fry

  • Cook potatoes in cooker or boil them till they are soft
  • Mash the potatoes and add jeera powder, red chilli powder, corriander powder, amchur powder and salt and mix well
  • Take slice of the bread and remove its thick edges using knife
  • In a pot fill in drinking water and put the bread slice on top of the water for few moments
  • Press the bread slice with both the palms and remove the water
  • Put a cylindrical ball of the potato mixture prepared earlier in the middle of the slice and close the bread slice to cover the mixture fully
  • Deep fry the rolls on medium heat and serve hot with tomato ketchup

You can try other fillings too.. I would be trying using lemon instead of amchur powder.
