Momos Simply Veg | Appetizers

Veg Momos, aka Steamed Dumplings is one such thing that makes everyone crave from toddlers, to teenagers like me, to youth like my sissy, and adults like my dad. 😀 And, every time we make it, we literally have a hard time rolling so many dumplings as we all love it so much. Jokes apart, Momos is traditionally a Tibetan dish, years after its popularity in the Tibet people in Nepal, Bhutan and North-eastern India have claimed it to be their dishes. No offences here guys. We respect food, let it come from anywhere. So, the below version is a simple recipe which you may find similar to some of the Veg Momo stalls in Darjeeling!

Guests coming in? Well, you can definitely make it for the appetizer. (Disheartening fact, Darjeeling street vendors sell 7-8 of these at INR 10-15 bucks, crazily low priced)

Pizza Uttapam | Alternative to Classic Pizza

Hey Foodies,

When I first had the thought of preparing pizza uttapam, I and my family had expected this one to be like the normal uttapam taste with cheese. But, when I made this, we all were astonished with the outcome. Not only, it literally looked like a pizza, it does taste too. This is also one of the recipes which got published at the Deccan Chronicle, by the lovely Amrita di. And, I remember when she tasted this pizza, she din’t know that this was out of rice until it got over 😛

Pizza Uttapam is a healthy yet tasty alternative to our very own pizza. Touches from the south India make it truly stand out and keeping you safe from frequent consumption of maida which is not quite great for health.

Lets begin.

  3. Heat a pan/tawa, add 1-2 big ladle fulls of the batter. Dont spread, let it spread on its own. Add a tsp of oil, let it cook until golden.
  4. Mix in ketchup, italian herbs, salt and chilli flakes.
  5. Flip the uttapam now spread the sauce. Sauce is optional! But definitely enhances taste! After the sauce, add the toppings and cheese, salt, pepper, chili flakes. Now some coriander. Cover and cook for 4-5 min in med-low flame.

Hey Foodies,

Biryani, the pride of Hyderabad, is definitely one dish which everyone knows to cook in their very own ways and styles. Biryani is one such thing which totally distinguishes itself with the plain rice we eat daily and the regular pulao. Biryani is the BIRYANI. So, lets look into the detailed procedure of the much loved Hyderabadi delicacy, the vegetarian version. Oh yes, this is the Hyderabadi Dum Veg Biryani!

This recipe would take 380-400 grams of uncooked Basmati rice which would serve 6.

  • Green chili - 4-5 slits
  • Water - ¼ cup
Instructions
  1. For Veggies: In a kadhai add oil. Now add whole garam masala, ginger-garlic paste. Saute for a minute. Now add carrot, potatoes, cauliflower, peas and salt. Saute until they are lightly cooked.
  2. After the veggies are a bit cooked, add in biryani masala, red chili powder, garam masala powder and gradually add yogurt stirring well to prevent curdling of curd.
  3. Now add mint, coriander, paneer. Cook until the moisture gets dried out which was caused due to adding yogurt. This would take approx 5 minutes. Veggies should not be cooked completely as we will dum it later on. It should 70% cooked.
  4. After the moisture is dried, add some fried onions and transfer to a bowl.
  5. For Rice: Boil water. Add oil, whole garam masala, salt. Boil until roaring boil. Add the soaked rice. In about 3-4 minutes in high flame rice will be 70% done. Test by eating some if it has a bite but its tastes like cooked or press between ur fingers. If breaks into 2 parts its ready. Strain it and spread on a big plate.
  6. For Dum: Take a cooker, add half of the vegetables, yogurt, green chilli, a pinch of salt and some nuts. Let it heat. Now add a handful of mint coriander. Now top it off with a good layer of rice.
  7. Next add the remaining vegetables, remaining mint-coriander(leave 1 tsp. for top), fried onions and the rice. Spread the rice and add the saffron mixture with a bit of mint-coriander, fried onion.
  8. Now sprinkle ¼ cup of water over it, Cover and cook for 2 minutes in lowest flame.
  9. Transfer the cooker to a big pot with some water. This water bath prevents the dum to get burnt.. In about 30-35 minutes the Biryani is ready to make you dig into it.
Notes
Cut vegetables in a uniform size.
Veggies are less, but the rice is used more for Biryanis.
You could use raw chopped nuts or saute them in oil and add.
Make sure to soak rice for atleast 1 hour.

Instructions
  1. Sponge: Add the salt to a cooker, use a idli cooker or a normal cooker(without whistle). Then keep a rack, cover and heat in low flame!
  2. Take a bowl and add in the room temp. butter, beat it. Then add the sugar and cream until light and fluffy. Takes 2-3 mins! Now add condensed milk, whisk for good 3-5 mins.
  3. Take a sieve and sift in the flour, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda. Fold the flour into the wet ingredients using a spatula or a spoon.
  4. Slowly add in Milk or hot water and make a smooth dropping consistency batter.
  5. Apply butter to a cake tin preferably a 6" or 7"(depending upon height required) or a steel/aluminium container of such diameter. Then a butter paper(for smooth, perfect, cake!) in the bottom and again butter it.
  6. Add the batter to the cake tin and then tap it twice!
  7. Keep the tin in the cooker which must be preheated by now, Cover it and make sure its in low flame!
  8. Bake for 25-30 mins*. Check after 25 mins with a toothpick, if the toothpick comes out clean, cake is ready! If not, bake for another 5 mins.
  9. After cake is baked, take it out and let it cool for 10 mins. Loosen the sides with a knife and then transfer the cake into a plate then a cooling rack!
  10. Chocolate Sponge is ready.
  11. Icing: Chill a stainless steel bowl and a wire whisk in freezer for about 15-30 mins. Also make sure the cream is chilled!
  12. Add the chilled cream, powdered sugar and vanilla(i don't prefer) to the chilled bowl and whisk until soft peaks! Then keep the cream in the fridge for another 15-20 mins and then beat for 3-5 mins or until stiff peaks!
  13. Whipped Cream is ready!
  14. Filling: Take the cherries and crush them lightly to take the seed out!
  15. Syrup: Take out syrup from cherry tins. Add sugar to it and then heat until sugar melts! Don't over heat, just until sugar melts.
  16. Shavings: Take dark compound chocolate bar and peel it with a peeler! After peeling, freeze for 10 mins or more so that they get stiff and its easy to crush and apply!
  17. Lets Assemble: Take 3-5 bowls and keep a plate over it. Or simply use a turn table!
  18. Cut cake into three layer horizontally by turning the table. Transfer the layers to a plate.
  19. Touch the turn table with cream to ensure safe decoration and then add the bottom sponge layer to it.
  20. Spread 3-4 tbsp of syrup to it. Spread a good ½ inch layer of cream to it. Then some cherries. Now the middle layer, syrup, cream and cherries.
  21. Now the final layer, keep it upside down and then spread syrup!Take a big dollop of stiff cream and then spread it on top as well on sides. Then make it smooth! If crumbs are seen, do a crumb coat!
  22. Keep the cake in freezer for 10 mins(optional). Makes easier to transfer to serving base!
  23. Transfer the cake to Cake base using palette knife. Be careful!
  24. Now add the remaining cream to a piping bag fitted with a star nozzle. Pipe with circular motion on top which makes rosettes.
  25. And pipe and lift on bottom.
  26. Sprinkle chocolate shavings all over sides and top.
  27. A cherry on the top of each rosette!
  28. Its ready!
Notes
Cocoa Powder Quantity: It depends upon quality. I would recommend to use 3.5 tbsp!
Milk/Hot water: You can use either one. I prefer both. About 2-3 Tbsp Milk and rest hot water. Using only milk can produce a milk chocolate type of taste!
Baking Time: It depends upon the stove.. It can take upto 45 mins.. But dont overbake.. Once the toothpick comes out clear, switch off the flame and take it out! Overbaking can result into hard cake!
Usually Kirsch(Cherry Rum) is used in this cake as a syrup. We are making at home, so we'll use the cherry syrup from tin!
You can use any of red cherries, black cherries, maraschino cherries. They are available in tins!
 

Black-Forest

Chill and serve. I found that the taste enhances and the flavors of cherry is intense, sponge is soft and overall is deliciously delicious after 12 hours!

Enjoy..  Such an easy recipe, and its without oven.. Why are you hesitating? Very easy to make too.. And it tastes better than bakeries.. Also the comfort of making at home, Bake it.. I am sure you’ll love it.. And you will always make cakes at home from now on.. No excuses, Just make it!

Feel free to ask any queries! I will be very happy to answer them!
