Today came up with this idea of spinach and cauliflower cutlets. Ideally you use a piping bag with a star nozzle to pipe out the churros, but I did not have that, so used a murku press which works just as well, except for the thickness. Approximate preparation and cooking time: 1 hour Serves: 3-4 Have been so caught up with work that the time I spend in the kitchen has reduced drastically. In the same pan heat the ghee and add the chopped dates to it.
Approximate preparation and cooking time: 20 minutes Italian pasta with a desi twist was on the Saturday menu. This is what you’ll need Pasta: 1 cup (dry pasta) (I used fusilli, you can use any pasta) Onion: 1 (finely chopped) Carrot: 1 (finely chopped) Peas: 1/4 cup Mixed peppers: 1/2 cup Tomatoes: 2 Garlic: 3 cloves (finely chopped) Ginger: 1/4tsp (finely chopped) Chilli powder: 1tsp Turmeric powder: 1/4tsp Coriander powder: 1/4tsp Garam Masala powder: 1tsp Chilli flakes: 1/2tsp Oregano: 1/2tsp Grated cheese: 2tbsp Olive oil: 2tbsp Salt and pepper to taste Let’s get cooking 1.
Add the chopped carrots along with the peas and a little water (around 1/4 cup). Keep the remaining bread crumbs aside, to be used for coating the cutlets.
Add the dry powders Chilli powder, turmeric powder, coriander powder, garam masala and salt. In a bowl add the chopped spinach along with the shredded cauliflower, ginger, chilli powder, turmeric powder, garam masala, chaat masala, cornflour and salt. Grate in the boiled potato and add 1/4 cup of the bread crumbs to the above mentioned mixture.
Pour in the tomato purée along with the mixed peppers. Spinach: 1 cup (finely chopped) Cauliflower: 1 cup (finely shredded) Potato: 1 (boiled) Ginger: 1tsp (grated) Chilli powder: 1tsp Turmeric powder: 1/2tsp Garam masala: 1tsp Chaat Masala: 1tsp Cornflour: 2tbsp Bread crumbs: 1/2 cup Salt to taste Oil: To shallow fry 1.
Was feeling so guilty, that the night before Diwali made Rava Laadoos and this simple Date and dry fruit roll.
Shape into small round shaped vadas and deep fry in hot oil. This was probably the first Diwali where I had hardly made anything specil.
