Luchi & Ghugni :)

When I was a kid, my mother used to prepare Luchi a lot. On every Sunday morning & whenever there is some guest, she will definitely prepare Luchi. So in our area - the small place Nutanpara, my mmother was famous as Luchi-Lady. It was a kind of tradition for our family to serve guests with Luchi :). Now a days, I prepare Luchi when I am having fever or in weekends :)

I first prepared when I was in class IX or X. One of the very old friends of my Baba came on that day & my mother was in school. So my Baba/Dad told me to prepare tea & omelet. But I prepared Luchi (to impress my Dad as well as my Ma). Long story short, my Baba was very happy as we were able to serve Luchi in spite of my mothers absence.

Here the way she used to prepare. One more thing, these Luchis go gret with Ghugni. The recipes are given below.



For Luchi:

Ingredients:

Maida - 500 gms.
Sugar - 1tea spoon
Salt - to taste
Oil to fry.

Method:

1. Sieve the maida well with salt, sugar and place in a flat dish. 
2. Make a bay in the center and put a little of oil for leavening. 
3. Add cold water and make a stiff dough. 
4. Make roundels of 15 gms and form dough. 
5. Roll out on an oily surface into thin discs. 
6. Briskly fry in smoking oil till puffed up and turn over. 
7. Serve hot.



For Ghugni:

Chick peas - 250gm
Onion - 4 (medium / 2 for paste, 2 for slicing)
Garlic paste - 2 tbs
Ginger paste - 1tbs

Cumin powder - 1tbs
Coriander powder - 1tbs
Chilly Powder - 2tbs
Green Chilly - 2
Tomato - 1 large
Potato - 1 large
Salt to taste
Sugar - 1tbs

Method:

1. Soak the chickpeas overnight, so that they become soft easily. Even after soaking also you have to put them in pressure cooker for 4-5 whistles.Add little bit salt while in cooker.After that drain that water.

2. Now heat a pan with mustard oil. Add garlic paste and then add the onions paste & slices.
3. Add chopped green chilies and fry the onions till they become soft.
4. Now add potato pieces & tomatoes and stir for  2 min in medium flame.
5. Now add the cooked peas in the pan. Increase the flame a bit and fry this whole mixture properly.
6. After 5 min of frying, add turmeric powder,cumin powder,coriander powder, chilly powder and ginger paste in it. Again stir properly so that masala can mix properly.
7. After frying all the peas and masalas, now add water. Add sugar & salt.
8. Now cook for 5-7 min in high flame.
9. Finally add garam masala just before finishing.Stire it properly.You can garnish it with chopped onions and chopped coriander. Even you can also add chopped green chili.






Note :  Sometime I like to have a sweet & spicy Ghugni. To do that you can add more sugar. Adding more sugar means, you have to add more chilly powder

Salad for Lunch: Cucumber & Beet

In today's lunch, I tried some creativity with my salads.

The recipes are simple. Just cut the vegetables & give a shape :) . Simple, isn't it? :)

I generally do not like salad that much, so tried these creativeness to make myself attracted to have them. I was successful in my work.

Here a few pics of them.

The Simple Cucumber Salad

Cucumber with its Skin
Cucumber with Beet Rose





For this one:
Using a vegetable peeler, slice the cucumber lengthwise into paper-thin strips. Roll the strips. Cut in the middle breadth-wise.
Start peeling the beet continuously in a long spiral. Roll the strip of beet inner skin tightly. Form a beet rose from the roll and place it carefully on the plate
Cucumber & Beet flowers



I am working on more salad variations & creative decorations.

Stuffed Zucchini Roll

This one is a very recipe. I was trying to prepare some easy but different salad for my lunch. So came up with this.



Ingredients:

1 small zucchini
salt and pepper

For the filling:
Carrot - grated
Onion - sliced
almonds, for decoration


Method:

1. Cut off the stem end of the zucchini. Using a vegetable peeler, slice the zucchini lengthwise into paper-thin strips.

2. Season with salt, pepper. (For better taste, you can leave to marinate for at least 20 minutes.) The zucchini strips will be more translucent and pliable after resting.

3. Mix the grated carrot & onion slices. Season with salt and mix vigorously until thoroughly incorporated.

4. Place about 1 tablespoon of the filling on the cut end of the zucchini strips.

5. Roll the zucchini strip over the filling and plate.

Note: You can use different vegetables as fillings with cheese. But since I am avoiding so much fat in my food, so not using cheese.

Mushroom with Zucchini

This is the first time I had Zucchini in my life. In my hometown, we cannot find these & after coming to the new place, this was the first time I saw them in the local market.

This recipe is slightly adapted from cookingforengineers.com



Ingredients:

Mushroom - sliced
Zucchini - cut the zucchini lengthwise twice and chopped into quarter inch sections
Salt
Oil
Turmeric powder
Onion
Cumin seeds



Method:

1. Heat a pan with one tablespoon oil. When the oil started to shimmer, add cumin seeds. When the seeds started to splutter, add the minced onion and keep it moving in the pan until evenly browned.


2. Turning the heat to medium-low, add the sliced mushrooms & toss. Add salt over the mushrooms. After a few seconds, toss them again. 

3. Once a decent amount of liquid had evaporated from the mushrooms, add the chopped zucchini to the pan, sprinkling on an additional dash of salt & turmeric powder.

4. Turning the heat to medium-high, allow the Zucchini to cook, tossing them every ten or fifteen seconds. Once some of the zucchini picked up some brown caramelized bits, remove from fire.

Mushroom Jalfrezi

Jalfrezi or “dry fry” is an Indian curry in which marinated pieces of meat or vegetables are fried in oil and spices to produce a thick, dry sauce. You can use bell peppers, onions, paneer, French beans, or any of your favorite vegetables.

I always want to try different vegetables, spices & other ingredients in different ways. So yesterday evening when I was with R in the market, suddenly some colorful vegetables came into my eye. This was the first time I found these vegetables in the market in my 1year staying in Marathahalli. While buying the colorful vegetables I decided what I would prepare in the next day lunch. 





I saw the vegetable jalfrezi recipe of Sanjeev Kapoor once in some TV show, so I tried to remember the recipe & modified that with mushrooms.

Hope you like it!

Baked Egg in Banana Leaf

That day, I was not feeling well. So I wanted to prepare something different (my friends know it very well that when I am not feeling right I'll cook something different). But there was only eggs in my room & a few onions, three small banana leaves & tomatoes.

So the output was a modified recipe. The method is somewhat similar to the we use for Hilsa fish recipe. I was not very sure about the recipe but result was very less-oily tasty kofta :) . Now my friend R is waiting to taste it again.

The recipe is here. Enjoy!



Ingredients:

Egg - 2
Flour - 2 tb spoon
Onion - 1 big
Tomato - 1 medium
Salt to taste
Turmeric powder - 1 tea-spoon
black pepper powder - 1/2 tea-spoon
>oil

Method:
1. Beat eggs with all ingredients;beat until it becomes smooth.
Heat up a sheet of banana leaf (make sure no holes) either by placing it on top of a heated pan or oven for a few minutes, or rinsed in boiling water. This softens the leaf and also releases the aroma.
3. Place the heated banana leaf in a baking tray (in case the juices seep out, which it will) and place batter on the banana leaf and wrap with the leaf. There is no need to wrap it tightly.
Bake for 15min in a tawa or oven.
5. Cut the baked egg in small pieces. If you want you can fry these cakes & make curry.


Tri-Colured Roti

Life is full of colours & I love to add this colour in my foods also.

I wanted to prepare paratha with some vegetable stuffing. But my friend R was not into a mood of oily foods. So while preparing roties for dinner, I thought to use those vegetables (which I wanted to use in stuffing) in roti as colours.

So the result came out a beautiful colurful recipe which made our dinner tasty :)

Enjoy the recipe!





Ingredients:



Wheat flour - 2 cup

Salt - 1/2 tea spoon


For red Colour:
Beet root

For orange colour:
Carrot

For green colour:
green capsicum, green chilly & green moong chana



Method


1. Divide maida in three parts.
2. Mix each part of maida with different coloured liquids separately; knead into three soft & smooth doughs. If required add water to make it smooth.
3. Divide each dough into 8 equal portions & combine one portion from each three coloured doughs together. Repeat the same thing for remaining 7 portions. Keep aside.
4. Roll out one portion of the dough into a circle of 75 mm. (3") diameter using whole wheat flour.
5. Cook on a hot tava (griddle), until both sides are ready.
6. Repeat with the remaining dough and stuffing to make 7 more roties.
7. Serve hot with daal tadka, daal pakoda & Onion.
