You do:

1. Cook pasta in big vessel with boiling water. Once cooked, drain all water, clean with some cold water and then drizzle one teaspoon of oil.
2. In heated yok with butter, add minced garlic and onion. Sauté till onion turns pink.
3. Add corn + sliced mushroom + colored sliced capsicum. Half cook these.
4. Add about one tablespoon of flour, mix till it covers all veggies. Add salt + black pepper + oregano +Italian seasonings.
5. Add about 1C of full fat milk and mix to make white sauce.

Working Mother Rant
Being a working mother of two, I am always dead tired at the end of the day, frankly cooking that too something special is not in my list. But the guilt of working mother overrules my tiredness and makes me cook and then if both the crazies finish what’s served – it just makes my day worth it !

Bedmi Puri | How to make Bedmi Poori at home | Crispy Urad Dal Puri

The foodie gets this so called “foodie vibes” in between of trying out some old lost recipes or dishes which he had long back.

So we tried searching bedghi – Bedai puri – that’s what he mentioned – which we concluded is bedmi puri – it’s a specialized puri from north of India. It is normally served with Aloo ki Sabzi (Potato tomato gravy).

You do :

· It requires say ½ C of URad dal to be soaked for around 4 hours, then grinded to coarse paste.

· Take Wheat flour + Rice Flour + Rava + salt – red chilli powder – turmeric as per taste.

· Mix the flour with about 2-3 tbsp of oil to make crumbles, then add the #uraddal paste. And this makes the Bedmi Poori atta .

· Add water if necessary – make a stiff dough.

· Make small puris – use oil if necessary and fry in medium high oil to make fluffy – crispy puris .

We had some leftover chicken gravy, me and kids had it with it and the Foodie had with his favorite Puri Bhaji which was Aloo Tamator zol.

Add this to the Recipes to try this weekend - Happy Weekend !

Hello

It’s been ages that I have posted here.
So much has changed, the time I used to blog – “food blog” was a new term. And today there are so many professional bloggers with awesome food snaps, beautiful posts, detailed recipes , videos of details – really I feel I was the pre- historic blogger :D
Frankly, with so much going on in my life, blogging was not in the priority, but then the old habits hobbies don’t go away so easily.
Though I have been hardly cooking nowadays, sometimes it just makes me go ahead and click a snap.
But then the snaps used to just lie around.
So I tried my hands on something called as Instagram which is like food snaps hub. There are so many foodstagrammers (is that a word ?) with million followers putting on again scrumptious snaps making you eat your mobile.
The only positive of Instagram was I did not type much, just post a click and add some hashtags – but I did miss my blog here.
So thought of posting here too- same – I have no idea how long I might post or how regular but then it’s my space so trying to be just being around.
Enough for today, and hope more comes by.
