Khaman Dhokla using Curd Recipe in Hindi | Besan Dhokla without ENO | Gujarati Snack Recipe

Hey Foodies,

Dhoklas is something I gorge on often, not just because these little steamed cakes are healthy, light, spongy & high on protein, but also because I love them! 😀

Mithai Patakha Parfait

Hey Foodies!

Deepavali, the festival of lights or the brightest festival of India is so close. Meeting Old friends, Family Gatherings, following traditions, Distributing Sweets, Enjoying Good Food, all that happens in this festival.

Diwali2015_PatakhaParfait-5672

It’s our tradition to serve sweets to guests, but why only serve the good old Motichoor Ladoos, Rasgollas, Gulab Jamun, Rasmalai, etc,.. when you can make something new? Here I bring a Patakha Recipe to you! Mithai Patakha Parfait, not the one you’d eat as breakfast but the one you would be happy to eat as dessert. What all is in? Mini Gulab Jamoons to take care of the tradition, Pepper Shrikhand for that creamy element & cut down extra sweetness with black pepper, Popcorn Chikki to bring an exotic crunch to the dessert, Nuts to make it nuttier and finally Popping Candy for all that pops in the mouth or I must say Patakha 😉 !

Why delay, here’s the video & text recipe for you!

[widget id=”text-5″]

Mind you, I din’t eat that mug alone! 😛 That was made for 3 servings in one, as mentioned in the recipe notes you can make this in any sized glass you prefer. Shots are perfect for individual servings.. Don’t introduce the recipe to the guests and let them enjoy first and you get to see the surprise 😉

That’s all for today.. CookingShooking Team wishes you & your family a very very Happy Diwali 🙂

Puri Chaat – Easy Indian Snack Recipes | Diwali 2015 Recipes

Hey Foodies,

Deepawali or Diwali, the brightest festival of the year is here and this time around, we’ve curated two recipes for you to stir up, serve & impress your guests!

d2015_purichaatir2

The best part? Both of these recipes are damn easy to make and are as scrumptious to the palate.. Why delay? Let’s get started.

Puri Chaat, a distance cousin of Raj Kachori. Easier to make, easier to impress your guests. I mean literally who can say no to a chaat. I can’t. Ofcourse, I’m a chatora. 😛

A crisp puri with bubbling hot vatana, ice cold sweet yogurt, tangy tamarind chutney, zingy coriander chutney, spices, sev, onions is this.

That’s easy ain’t it? Make it & Enjoy 🙂

This recipe was inspired by my relative Manisha Bhabhi, her mom makes a slight different version of this. She calls it Bhar ke Puri and she recently started blogging at www.foodnspoons.com. She shared her mom’s recipe for Bhar ke Puri with me years back, and since then I’ve been making it every now and then with different variations and it comes out great all the time 🙂 Check out her version here.

That’s all for today, one more diwali special recipe to come very soon! 🙂
