Aloo (potatoes) and Palak (spinach) are two vegetables I always have in my kitchen. Potatoes we all know are used in so many ways and have endless recipes. I also use spinach in many dishes. I thought I had done this recipe a long time ago, but today I made this dish for my family after some time and they enjoyed it very much and asked me if I have done this video recipe. I was looking on my website and realized I have not done this recipe yet. This is a common recipe, but this is my version of Aloo Palak. Adding fenugreek seeds and besan (gram flour) kicks off the flavor to the dish. For me and Alex, this is a comfort dish. This recipe is also vegan and gluten free. I serve this as a side dish, or I enjoy rolling it in a Roti or Paratha to make a to-go lunch. Alex especially enjoys making grilled cheese sandwiches filled with leftover Aloo Palak. I have done many recipes for spinach: Palak Paneer, Saag, Spinach Crisps, Chole Palak, Palak Puri This recipe will serve 4.

Add potatoes, spinach, and 1/­­2 cup of water, cover the pan. Let it cook over medium heat. The potatoes should be very tender but not mushy and should be covered with spinach. NotesDo stir in between besan can stick to the bottom of the pan. I did stir once in between. If needed, add a little more water. Aloo Palak should not be very dry, it should be moist. Add mango powder and stir, turn off the heat. Aloo Palak is ready. The post Aloo Palak (Spinach with Potatoes) appeared first on Manjula's Kitchen.

I hope everyone is doing well and getting used to our new normal.  I know this year our holiday celebrations don’t feel the same.  We are used to celebrating with large numbers of people and celebrating the festival season. I know it may not be ideal, but we can still make the most of the season by getting together in our backyards with small groups.   Some of our friends have planned to enjoy garba with three or four families.  That way they can still enjoy dressing up in nice clothes.  Of course, they plan on wearing masks and practicing social distancing. I don’t know about you, but I feel like masks have become a fashion statement and they are just a part of our daily life and just another accessory!

Happy Karva Chauth to all the lovely married folks!

November 4 2020 Manjula's kitchen 

Happy Karva Chauth to all the lovely married folks! Karva Chauth is a traditional Hindu festival in some parts of India. Married women fast all day, wishing for their husbands health and long life. In some cases, and for those who wish to make this holiday more modern, both husbands and wives may fast together. This is pretty new and Ive seen this only occasionally! My elder daughter-in-law is very traditional and really enjoys this special festival. She takes pleasure in all the rituals associated with Karva Chauth. This years menu is simple but delicious. I plan on making Gatte ki sabji (which is a Rajasthani dish and my daughter-in-laws favorite!), Aloo Methi, Puris, Rice, and of course Gulgula. It will be a satisfying meal for all of the fasting married women!  The post Happy Karva Chauth to all the lovely married folks! appeared first on Manjula's Kitchen.

Story Behind Recipes

September 23 2020 Manjula's kitchen 

Story Behind Recipes Dont you think it is true? Most of us have some story behind our favorite dishes. Most of the dishes I make have a story behind them. This may sound silly but this is the fact. My grand kids will vouch for me saying our dadima is full of stories. We all have some dishes we have enjoyed and admired. It makes a difference where and with who we dined. The presentation can inspire you, and that becomes the story behind that dish. I remember my first lentil dal I made: I used at least double the salt yet still my dad enjoyed it. I rolled my first roti into world map shape and my mom smiled and complimented it saying that was a piece of art. I gave the same compliment to my granddaughter when she rolled her first roti at five years old. She loved the idea of a world map. When my boys were young, I would make them puries; when they saw the puries being puffed, their eyes opened wide and they had so many questions. This happened every time they saw the puries, for I never came up with a good answer to satisfy their curiosity. Bengali Rasgullas are my favorite dessert. They are made with homemade paneer: round paneer balls soaked in sugar syrup. This is a delicacy from the state of Bengal. I will say one can never go wrong with this dish. When I was first learning to cook Rasgullas, they would turn out hard, not the right shape, or break in pieces. I learned quickly how to fix this, making them into different desserts in whichever way the imperfect Rasgullas would allow. My friends would ask me for the recipe. I tried explaining, but no one believed me. I decided to serve them differently and each time they were a hit amongst my friends. The bottom line is to enjoy your creation! I think I take every incident in my life as a story. Life is easier and more beautiful that way for me. It puts a smile on my face. Many of my viewers will ask how to make a certain dish restaurant style, but I like and enjoy simple home-made food. I dont even try to make restaurant style, but it does not mean I dont get inspired when I see some dish that is eye-catching; I will always see how I can make such a dish in homemade style. Thats how I came up with the recipe for Taco Samosa: I saw it made in the restaurant and then I put my own twist to it. A recent recipe I have cooked is Gulab Jamun Cake. My daughter-in-law wanted me to make it and asked me to add my own twist. I googled for the recipe; I was not happy with any of them, so I decided to create my own. After a few attempts to do so, I was very happy with the results. Sorry! I am the last person who can follow the recipes. It is strange then that I want you to follow mine. I enjoy it when I read the comments where you have made your own changes to the recipe. When we go out for dinner, visit friends and family, go to restaurants or I see some magazine that has a beautiful looking dish that catches my eye, I want and will try to make it. I think cooking is an art; instead of colors, you play with ingredients. Painters are inspired by something before they paint. I see cooking in the same way.

Course Appetizer Cuisine Indian Keyword Chaat, Cilantro Chutney, Cocktail Samosa, Cooking Video, delicious, Delicious Aloo Samosa, Gulab Jamuns, Homemade, Jain Food, jalebi, Khana, Kid Friendly, No Garlic, No Onion, Popular Snack, Potato Pastry, Potato Pattie, Punjabi Style, Puri, Satvik, Street Food, Stuffed Puri, Swaminarayan, Tamarind Chutney, Vegan, Veshno Cooking, Yogurt Prep Time 10 minutes Cook Time 30 minutes Total Time 40 minutes Servings 4 people IngredientsFor Crust1 cup all-purpose flour plain flour, maida 1 Tbsp fine sooji samolina 1/­­2 tsp salt 1 1/­­2 Tbsp oil 2 drops of lemon juice 1/­­4 cup water Adjust as needed For the Filling3 medium size potatoes boiled, peeled and chopped into small pieces, will make about 2 cups 1/­­2 cup green peas I am using frozen peas 1 1/­­2 Tbsp oil 1 tsp cumin seeds jeera 1 Tbsp coriander powder dhania 1 Tbsp green chilies chopped 2 Tbsp cilantro chopped, hara dhania 1/­­4 tsp red chili powder 1/­­2 tsp garam masala 1 tsp mango powder amchoor 1 tsp salt InstructionsMaking the DoughMix the flour, sooji, salt, oil and 2 drops pf lemon juice, mix it well rubbing with your fingers. Note: lemon juice should be just 2 drops, we are not adding to flavor, lemon is added to give the crispness. Add the water slowly, to make stiff dough and knead well. Cover the dough and let it sit for at least fifteen minutes. Making the FillingHeat the oil in a frying pan on medium high heat. Test the heat by adding one cumin seed to the oil; if it cracks right away oil is ready. Add cumin seeds as cumin seeds crack, add green peas, and turn heat to medium and stir until tender. Add all the spices coriander powder, green chilies, mango powder, garam masala, cilantro and salt mix it well. Add the potatoes and stir-fry for about 4 minutes. Potato mix should not be very dry. Add more salt or amchur according to taste. Let the filling cool to room temperature. Making SamosaTake 2 Tbsps of water and keep aside. Knead the dough again well. Divide the dough into 5 equal parts and make into balls. Roll each ball into 6-inch diameter circles, circle will not be very clean, that is fine. Cut each circle in half. Spread the water lightly all along the edge of one semicircle. Pick this semicircle up with both hands and fold it into a cone shape. Pinch the side of this cone so that it is completely sealed. Fill the cone with about 2 Tbsps of filling, do not over fill. Press this filling down with your fingers. Now close the top of this cone into a triangle shape, pinching the top edge so that it is completely sealed. Continue filling the rest of the samosas. Heat about 1 inch of the oil in a frying pan on low medium heat. To check if oil is hot enough place a small piece of dough in oil and dough should sizzle and come to the surface slowly. Place the samosas in the frying pan a few at a time. After samosas are floating on top of the oil turn them slowly. Fry the samosas until the samosas turn a light golden-brown color on all sides, this should take about 10 to 12 minutes. If you use a high heat, the samosa crust will be soft and not crispy. NotesTips - Do not over boil the potatoes. - Be careful not to poke the potatoes multiple times while they are cooking, as they will absorb the water. - Drain immediately and keep aside until cool off. - If the filled samosas sit for too long, they will dry. To avoid this, cover with a damp cloth. You will also enjoy Gulab Jamun, Jalebi, Aloo Tikki, Khasta Kachori Suggestions - Samosa can be prepared ahead of time and can be freeze for a month. - Before freezing, fry them enough until samosa changes the color to light gold brown. - After samosas are on room temperature bag them in zip lock bags and freeze them. - To use frozen samosas, take out as many you need and fry them on medium heat, make sure do not defrost the samosa before frying.
