Welcome to my Blog

Hmm you'll say...yet another food blog! And I'll beg to differ, although I must say my recipes are not hi-funda, and sometimes the pictures do not do justice to them (I'm working on that) but you'll find them extremely easy to cook, hassle free and down right delicious.
So if you are a newbie in the kitchen department or has not ventured into the kitchen for some strange reason (like me)...then you have come to the right place.

Happy Cooking!

French-Fried Bhajiyas

Ramadan Mubarak to all the Bloggers!

Now that Ramadan has officially gone underway and the summer almost out the door...Iftaars are all about something hot and piping. Something hot...hmm, the first thing that pops up in your mind will be those sinister looking oily delicacies which you actually avoided eating all these days and which you can't resist no more!!

2-3 potatoes
1-2 tbs chana besan flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp ginger garlic paste
1 tsp red chilli powder
a pinch of baking soda
few cilantro sprigs
3-4 tbs oil, for deep frying

Peel the skin of the potatoes and cut them length wise-french fried style. Keep them aside.

In a bowl, take chana besan and mix salt, ginger garlic paste, red chilli powder, soda and cilantro. Add water little by little, just enough to make a thick batter and hold the potatoes together.

Toss in the potatoes and coat them well in the mixture.

Spoon out the potatoes and deep fry till golden brown. Serve with chutney or sauces of your choice.
