Chicken and Egg puff

Puff the name itself tells us.......It is puffed up,fluffy and flacky.It is the basic thing to make with various stuffings.A vegetarian,Non-vegetarian or even sweet.It is so crispy and flaky by the way it is prepared.Needs more attention and patience to make this pastry.I tried it for 3 or more times but got it right only now.........

Now remove butter from fridge and place them outside for 10 mins.Knead the dough dusting with  maida flour into a rectangle.The dough should be bigger than the rectangled butter.

Place butter in center of the dough,close the sides well.Butter should be covered well with the dough.Dust them and roll into a long rectangle.Shape three times bigger and fold one edge into the centre and then cover with other edge.The fold should be three layers.Then turn the dough and knead again to a long rectangle.Don't worry when the butter comes out.Just dust them and roll.Fold again in three quaters and roll again.Do it for 3 times wrap them with clingfilm and place them in fridge for 20 mins.Now again remove from fridge dust them roll and fold then dust roll and fold for 3 times and cover,,refrigerate again for 20 mins.Repeat the process for 3-4 times and cover them well and refrigerate till use.......................

Gavichi kheer

This kheer is the authentic recipe from maharastra.All over India people make this kind of sweet dish in many names kheer,payasam,pradaman etc....Wheat is a good fibre and very good for health.The original recipe contains wheat germs soak them in water whole night,grind them and use....It's a long process I've done a cheating work by using bulgar(broken wheat).

It is as healthy as whole wheat germ and easy to cook.To make the kheer thick use rawrice soaked in water and grind to a fine paste.you can use rice flour simply.And  when we comes to jaggery you all know ,It contains Iron,calcium etc.........But beware It may contain mud so make a syrup,strain and use...On the whole this Kheer isa healthy and nutritious one............Lets see the recipe now.......

                                         Kadi Gole( Maharastrian kadhi)

We make kadhi in different versions from different parts of India.In South India,we make with buttermilk and turmeric powder mixed with rice paste named as "morr kulambu".North Indian will mix butter milk with gram flour named "kadhi".......Any boiled vegetables can be added to this to enhance the taste.This maharastrian Kadhi is made of GOLE,a dhal dumpling boiled in butter milk and mixed with spices......The dish is awesome and goes well with Rice,Roti.The consistency of dal batter should be very thick otherwise it will break and mix with butter milk.

This recipe I made for Divya pramil's SNC challenge hosted by prerana khanwalkar.So sad that Divya is winding up the SNC group from August.Only one recipe rest to make for this group.It makes me feel so bad but no other way than to go with Divya...............

                               Cauliflower scones

                               This is my first post for the secret recipe group by priya.She will give us partners and we have to discuss two ingredients each and we have to prepare a recipe with both or one of the choosen ingredient.It's an awesome experience with my partner srividhya and We have become good friends now and sure we'll keep in touch always.Thanks to priya for giving me such a good friend. My secret ingredients suggested by srividhya are cauliflower and milk. 

                                    I just thought of making a different dish but didn't know what to prepare with cauliflower.Suddenly scones came into my mind and not even know whether I can make a scone with a vegetable.A scone is a single-serving cake or quick bread. They are usually made of wheat, barley or oatmeal, with baking powder as a leavening agent, and are baked on sheet pans. They are often lightly sweetened or unsweetened.It is basically belongs to british tradition.

                                   I made scones with cauliflower and prepared a stuffing with onions and cheese. I feel so happy with the result I've got and the taste is awesome.It made a fantastic combination and I've got many guests to eat the scones.They all enjoyed it a lot.
