November 11 2018 Manjula's kitchen 

Crispy Shakarpara (Almond Biscuit) Recipe (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); Crispy Shakarpara A traditional tea-time biscuit-like snack often made during festive occasions, shakarpara is the perfect sweet for any gathering. They are deep-fried sugar crisps with almonds and hint of cardamom, which adds to their unique flavor.

Baked Vegetable Idli

October 21 2018 Manjula's kitchen 

Baked Vegetable Idli (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); Baked Vegetable Idli Baked vegetable Idli makes for a healthy and delicious appetizer or side dish. They are very eye-catching and great to present at a gathering for guests to pop into their mouth. They are the perfect addition to any menu because they are so easy to make. Idlies have a unique texture because they are soft but also slightly crisp on the bottom. Baked vegetable idli are best served with coconut chutney if served as an appetizer or with sambar if served with the main meal. - 1 cup coarse sooji (semolina) - 1/­­2 cup yogurt (dahi, curd) - 1/­­2 cup bell pepper (finely chopped, capsicum, I am using green and yellow for color) - 1 green chili (finely chopped) - 1 piece ginger (finely grated) - 2 Tbsp cilantro (chopped, hara dhania) - 1 cup water (as needed) - 1 tsp ENO (fruit salt) - 1 tsp salt For Seasoning - 1 Tbsp oil - 1/­­4 tsp cumin seeds (jeera) - 1/­­4 tsp mustard seeds (rai) -  Preheat the oven at 350 degrees (F). - Seasoning: heat the oil moderately in a saucepan. Add mustard and cumin seeds, as the seeds crack turn off the heat and set aside. - I am using mini cupcake tray, will make 24 idli, oil it and set aside. - Mix sooji, salt, yogurt, and water (as needed) to make a pancake-like batter. Set aside for at least 30 minutes. - Add the vegetables bell pepper, carrots, ginger, green chili, and cilantro. Add the seasoning and mix. The batter thickens as the semolina absorbs the water. At this point, add a little more water if it is too thick. - Add Eno Fruit Salt to the batter and mix well. The mixture will begin foaming. Immediately begin pouring into the cupcake tray. Place the tray in oven. - Bake the idlies for five minutes, then lay over the aluminum foil. Bake it again for 15 minutes. Idlies should be lightly brown from the sides. - Cool for few minutes before removing each individual idli. They should come out easily and not stick to the tray. The idlis should be spongy, and light golden color from the sides and bottom. Notes:  First, I baked the idlies without covering, then after 5 minutes I covered the Idlies, if you dont cover Idlies, they will be dry and will lose the softness and texture. you can prepare Idlies 2-3 days in advance, after they cool of refrigerate them in air tight container. Before serving heat the Idlies in microwave for about two minutes. Idlies will be soft. Baked vegetable idli are best served with coconut chutney if served as an appetizer or with sambar if served with the main meal. The post Baked Vegetable Idli appeared first on Manjula's Kitchen.

Khasta Mathri - Indian Savory Crackers

August 26 2018 Manjula's kitchen 

Khasta Mathri - Indian Savory Crackers (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); Khasta Mathri – Indian Savory Crackers Khasta Mathri is a popular, classic savory snack. You can serve these Mathries with pickle at tea time or you can enjoy as is! For all the upcoming holidays, Mathries make a good snack to have around to serve to all guests. They also make for a simple but special homemade gift. - 1 cup all-purpose flour (maida or plain flour) - 2 Tbsp sooji (semolina flour) - 1/­­2 tsp salt - 1/­­4 tsp black pepper (crushed) - 1/­­4 tsp cumin seeds (jeera) - 2 Tbsp oil (canola or vegetable oil) - 1/­­2 cup chilled water - 2 drops lemon juice - oil to fry -  Mix the flour, sooji, salt, black pepper, cumin seeds, lemon drops and oil. Note lemon should be just 2-3 drops, we are not adding this to flavor, lemon is added to give the crispness, also Mathries will absorbed less oil. - Add the chilled water slowly, mixing with your fingers as you pour. Do not knead the dough. The dough should be soft. -  Cover the dough and let it sit for at least fifteen minutes. Divide the dough into about 20 equal parts, I decided to make 14. - Take each part of the dough and make a flat ball shape. Roll them into 2-inch circles. Prick each mathri with a fork about 6-8 places, both sides each, to prevent puffing the mathri when frying. - Heat the oil in a frying pan on low medium heat. The frying pan should have at least 1 inch of oil. To check if the oil is ready, put a small piece of dough in the oil. The dough should make the oil sizzle and come up slowly. -  Fry mathri in batches, making sure to place just enough mathri to cover the frying oil. Fry them until both sides are a light golden-brown. This should take about 5-7 minutes. Take them out over paper towel, which will absorb the extra oil Suggestions Serve the Khasta Mathri with cranberry pickle, or Chatpata Aloo Khasta Mathris can be stored for a couple of months in airtight containers. If the mathris are cooked on high heat, they will be soft.   The post Khasta Mathri – Indian Savory Crackers appeared first on Manjula's Kitchen.

I traveled across Kashmir & Ladakh, trekking through mountain villages and exploring towns and cities, staying mostly with families and cooking together in their kitchens. Then I went deep into the Northeast: West Bengal, Assam, Sikkim, and Nagaland. I even met with world famous chefs at their restaurants - and homes - for incredible eats and great times in the kitchen. Now I’m back in Berlin, recreating the culinary wonders of the Indian subcontinent in my own kitchen. As with my previous 4 cookbooks, I have written, illustrated, cooked, photographed, and designed this book myself. It’s a labor of love and the ultimate combination of my passions: art, travel, vegan cooking, and photography.

Pizza Dough

September 24 2016 Vegan Dad 

Pizza Dough Every Saturday we have pizza and watch a movie. Needless to say, I have made a lot of pizza dough in my day. For years I have made fairly wet doughs (Neapolitan, focaccia, New York, etc.) which produce thin and crispy crusts with some chewiness when baked on a hot stone. More recently the kids have been asking for a thicker crust and I was happy to oblige. I wasnt happy with recipes I found since they tended towards the dense and stodgy, so I made my own recipe. This crust is thicker (and can handle a truck load of toppings) but is still crispy and chewy. The cold ferment imparts great flavour which is the most important thing of all. INGREDIENTS Makes six 10 crusts - 6.5 oz semolina flour - 14 oz bread flour - 13 oz all purpose flour - 2 tbsp sugar - 2 tsp salt - 1 tbsp instant yeast - 4 oz oil - 13 fl oz cold water - 6 oz cold water METHOD 1. Add all ingredients to a mixer bowl and bring together into a rough dough with a dough hook. Let dough rest for 5 minutes, then knead with the dough hook for 5-7 minutes, or until dough is smooth and slightly tacky (but not sticky). Add more flour or water as needed. 2. Turn dough out onto an oiled baking sheet. Divided into six equal pieces and shape into balls. 3. Mist with oil, cover well with plastic wrap, and place sheet in the fridge over night. 4. On baking day, take the dough out of the fridge at least two hours before you want to start baking. Reshape the balls and leave to rise in a warm place. The dough is ready to shape when it is warm and has risen. 5. Preheat your baking stone in a 450 degree oven. 6. Lightly spray six separate pieces of baking parchment with oil (you can reuse these from week to week). With your fingertips, spread the dough into a 10 circle, creating a ridge on the outside if you want. Let the dough rise, uncovered, for another 30 minutes. 7. Top with whatever suits you, and bake until crust is golden and cheese is melted (about 8-10 minutes), removing the parchment once the crust swells and begins to firm up.

Recipe will make about 40 Masala Puri Preparation time: 15 minutes Cooking time: 20 minutes Ingredients: - 1 cup all-purpose flour (maida, plain flour) - 1/­­2 cup fine sooji (semolina) - 1 teaspoon salt - 1/­­2 teaspoon cumin seeds (jeera) - 1/­­2 teaspoon carom seed (ajwain) - 1/­­8 teaspoon asafetida (hing) - 1 teaspoon red chili flakes - 2 tablespoons oil - 1/­­2 cup water Also need oil to fry Method - In a bowl mix all the dry ingredients all-purpose flour, sooji, Salt, Cumin seeds, carom seeds, asafetida, and red chili flakes. - Add oil to the flour mix and rub with your fingers to mix it well. Add the water little at a time, making into a firm dough. - Cover the dough and set aside for about 10 minutes or more. - Divide the dough into about 40 equal parts, and roll them between your palms. - Roll the puries into 3 inch circles. - Prick each puri with a fork in 3 to 4 places, this will prevent the puries not to puff while frying. - Heat the oil in a frying pan on medium heat. - The frying pan should have about 1 inch of oil. To check if the oil is ready, put a small piece of dough in the oil. The dough should make the oil sizzle and come up slowly. - Fry few puries at a time, make sure to place just enough puries to cover the oil. Fry them until both sides are a light golden-brown. Take them out over paper towel and repeat the process. Tips: - Masala Puries can be stored for a couple of months in airtight containers. - If the puries are cooked on high heat, they will be soft. these are some more gift ideas!

Making the Filling - Heat the oil in a frying pan on medium 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 stir-fry for about 2 minutes . -  Add all the other ingredients, potatoes, coriander powder, red chili powder, garam masala, mango powder, salt and green chili. Stir-fry for about 2 minutes , potato filling should be moist not very dry. Making Taco Shells - Knead the dough for few seconds. Divide the dough into 8 equal parts, and roll them into balls. - Roll each dough ball into about 4-inch diameter. Prick each rolled up Taco with a fork in several places both sides, this will prevent Taco from puffing and make them crisp. - Heat the oil in a frying pan over medium heat. The frying pan should have about 1 inch of oil. To check if the oil is ready, put a small piece of dough in the oil. The dough should sizzle and come up slowly. - Place one rolled Taco in the frying pan and press with a skimmer, turn and fold in half. Doing this it will become taco shape. Do not press, between the fold there should be space to fill the potatoes filling. Gently do the next one same way do not over crowd the frying pan. Fry them until light golden brown on both sides. This should take about 2-3 minutes . Take the Taco out and place them on paper towels to absorb the excess oil. Repeat the process for remaining Taco. - You can prepare the taco shells in advance and store them in air tight container. Assembling the Tacos -  Fill the taco shell with potato filling (filling should be hot) and drizzle with chutney. Suggestions Taco Samosa you can prepare in advance and assemble before serving. Taco shells should be good for two weeks or more. Potato filling also can be refrigerated for 3-4 days just heat the filling before serving. Chutneys I always have ready.
