Hie foodies,

We all relish that glass of falooda, even after a huge meal on any hot summer day.  Well there’s something special we all like in it. And, I am here today with it, making it in the comfort of home.

Faloodanoodles (4 of 5)

Well, one of the most important ingredient of falooda is the noodles or sev, hence it comes! 😀

Faloodanoodles (3 of 5)

 

Commercially, falooda sev is made with Tapioca/Sabudana. Today, I am doing an easy version by using corn flour.

  • Sugar - 2 and ½ Tbsp
  • Oil - to grease

Hey ya,

Pav Buns, Ladi Pav, Dinner Rolls. Whatever you call, but making them at home is a pain isn’t it? Well, Not now..

1 (1)

Textie Version is what you are for? Lol, here you go!
[widget id=”text-5″]

Eggless Ladi Pav Buns Recipe - Feather Soft /Dinner Rolls| Eggless Baking
 
Ingredients
  • Plain Flour / Maida - 2 Cups / 250 Gms
  • Milk - ¾ Cup + 1½ Tbsp / 190 Ml
  • Salt - 1 Tsp / 5 gms
  • Butter - 4 Tsp / 20 gms
  • Milk Powder - 1½ Tbsp / 15 Gms
  • Instant Yeast - 2 Tsp / 8 gms
  • Sugar - 1 Tbsp / 15 gms
  • Milk & Butter - For Brushing
  • Maida/Flour - for dusting
  • Oil - for greasing
Instructions
  1. Warm the milk, Add the sugar, yeast. Mix well and keep aside for 10 minutes.
  2. Add the maida, salt and milk powder in your kitchen platform mix well and make a well.
  3. After 10 minutes yeast mixture should look frothy(if it does not, then throw and restart or get another brand of yeast), Add this mix to the well and make a dough. It would be on the sticky paste side. Its absolutely perfect.
  4. Now add the butter to the sticky paste and start kneading. It will turn from sticky mass of dough to a dough that is a dough and turns to a bowl. I mean it turns to a dough, that's when the gluten is activated and it is ready will take 15 minutes of kneading for reaching that stage. Use scraper to scrape the dough that has stuck. And knead for 15 mins.
  5. DO NOT add any thing i mean do not add any flour or any oil or anything while kneading, all the magic happens just like that. It will be not soft if you add anything while kneading.
  6. After 15 mins of kneading, transfer this dough to a big bowl, cover and keep aside for 45 mins to one hour.
  7. It will double in volume after one hour, take some maida dust your hands and punch down the dough. Take out and knead for one minute, if it sticks too much, sprinkle some maida. Dont add too much maida otherwise the pav would not be that soft.
  8. Now divide this dough to 16 portions, about 30-31 grams each. Now keep one portion in your pan and with other hand roll this in circular motion to make a round shape.
  9. Take a 8" square cake tin and grease with oil, place the shaped dough. Keep the dough portions very close touching each other. Otherwise they wont rise up, but rise sideways and become flat.
  10. Now cover the tin with damp cloth and keep aside for another 40-45 mins.
  11. Preheat your oven to 200C for 10 minutes.
  12. Carefully remove the damp cloth after 30 minutes so that they dont stick to the cloth.
  13. After 45 minutes, brush the pav gently with milk. Gently place the cake tin in the oven and bake for 15 minutes at 200 C.
  14. If the buns dont look brown, bake for some more time. Take them out immediately and brush the top part with butter. Keep aside till they cool and ENJOY!

Atta Pizza Recipe / Wheat Crust Healthy Pizza | Made without oven, Eggless Baking Without Oven

Whatsup Peeps? Lol, me trying to change the way 😛 Hey foodies is better 😛

Hey Foodies,

Healthy Pizza, can it be?

2

Yes, ofcourse, this pizza is cheeesssyyy, heeeallthhyy, and scrumptious! Whole Wheat Crust or Atta Pizza is the one most of us look for.. So days back, i was returning from Mumbai and one of our foodie friend recognized me, i mean she watches our recipes and likes them a lot.. So we were talking about food ofcourse, the conversation came to pizzas and she said, now-a-days we dont even touch normal base, we get multigrain or whole wheat base only. It would be great if you could tell me how to make atta pizza at home.. Finally, here it is.. And not only she but many of you have requested me this, so.. 🙂

[widget id=”text-5″]
Atta Pizza Recipe / Wheat Crust Healthy Pizza | Made without oven, Eggless Baking Without Oven
 
Ingredients
  • Wheat Flour - 1 Cup
  • Warm Water - ½ Cup
  • Olive Oil - 2 Tbsp
  • Mixed Herbs - 1 Tbsp
  • Sugar - ½ Tsp
  • Salt - To Taste
  • Yeast - ½ Tbsp
  • Onions - ¼ Cup {Chopped}
  • Bell Peppers - ¼ Cup {Chopped}
  • Corn - ¼ Cup {Blanched}
  • Pizza Sauce - 3 Tbsp
  • Cheese - ½ Cup
  • Olive OIl - 1 Tbsp
  • Salt n Herbs - Your Preference!
Instructions
  1. In a bowl add the warm water, sugar and yeast. Mix well and keep aside for 10 minutes.
  2. Add the atta, salt, herbs in a bowl or a kneading plate and mix well. Pour in the yeast mix and knead to a sticky soft dough, if required add more warm water.
  3. Transfer to a oil greased bowl and cover with a damp cloth and keep aside in a warm place for about an hour.
  4. After one hour, heat a gas tandoor/cooker in med-high flame or a oven at 250 C for 10 minutes.
  5. Dust you hands with atta and knead the dough out for a minute. Then roll it dusting atta in between to prevent sticking as thin or as thick as you prefer. I roll it to 26 cm diameter.
  6. In a pizza pan or any bakeable tawa add one tbsp oil and then place the rolled pizza dough and adjust the shape if needed to.
  7. Place the tawa in the tandoor and bake the base for 2 minutes. Wheat crust pizzas have a tendency to have a raw after taste/smell if not cooked well.
  8. Take the base out and spread the sauce, scatter the cheese, onions, capsicums, corn. Season with salt and smear the edges with oil.
  9. Transfer this to the tandoor and bake for 10 minutes in med-high flame.
  10. Pizza is ready, rub the herbs and add those in as well, slice and enjoy!

Healthy, Cheesy, Yummy, Scrumptious and you cannot just stop eating this 😀

Pizza Base Recipe | Without Yeast and Oven | Eggless Baking Without Oven

Hey Foodies,

Pizza, Pizza, Pizza!

1

We all get a pack of pizza base and make pizza in a jiffy.. Well, many reasons behind, some dont know how to make one at home, some dont get the so overhyped “Good Yeast” to make that and some just for the sake of the instant thingy!

4

 

Well, Here I bring my Pizza Base Recipe, its made without oven, its without any yeast, and ofcourse gets ready in 10 mins! And the freshness is out of the world! Also, you can add your favorite ingredient to the

base, from onions to basil! I’ve tried onion, garlic, basil. chili flakes, oregano and it tastes fantastic!

2

Let’s make pizza bases, 10 minutes in total and a fresh pizza base which tastes awesome!!


[widget id=”text-5″]
Pizza Base Recipe | Without Yeast and Oven | Eggless Baking Without Oven
 
Ingredients
  • Plain Flour/Maida - 1 Cup
  • Yogurt - ½ Cup
  • Baking Soda - ½ Tsp
  • Baking Powder - ½ Tsp
  • Salt - To Taste
  • Mixed Herbs - ½ Tsp {Opt.}
  • Olive Oil - 1½ Tbsp
  • Plain Flour - For Dusting
  • Salt - 1½ Cups {For Baking}
Instructions
  1. Take a idli cooker or pressure cooker or any huge pot and add in the 1½ cups of salt to it. Spread it well and place a wire stand and put up a perforated plate over it.
  2. Cover and heat it up in med flame. Remove the whistle if using pressure cooker and loosen the whistle if using idli cooker.
  3. In a bowl or a kneading plate add the plain flour, salt, baking soda, baking powder and herbs{if using}. Mix well and add yogurt and make a sticky soft dough.
  4. Once dough is formed, add oil and knead for a minute. Divide the dough into two for 7" medium thick pizza bases. Adjust if you want thin crust/thick or small/big pizzas.
  5. In a dusted platform roll the portion, if required dust some flour.
  6. Take a 7" cake tin or any plate/utensil. Grease it well with some oil. Sprinkle some flour. Only flour also might work! I've not tested so far. but there's a risk of it getting stuck to the utensil/tin.
  7. Now prick some holes into it using a fork. Transfer this to the cooker/pan and quickly close it.
  8. Bake for 5-6 mins in medium flame. Take it out and enjoyy!
Notes
As there is yogurt, I'd not suggesting storing this for more than 2 days. Do not refrigerate.
If you have made normal dough without herbs and want to add herbs like i did for one. Just knead in the herbs to the dough!

3

Oh Yumm! Why buy that stale base when you can spend your just 10 mins for such an awesome base which you can customize as well!

No more excuses, cannot get any simpler! Do write in to how it goes via comments section or via email at yaman@cookingshooking 🙂
