Stuffed Perwal

Ivy Gourd(Perwal in hindi) was one of my favorite vegetables. I tried stuffed perwal this time. My DH tasted stuffed perwal, while having lunch with his friends at office. He liked it too much and he came back home with fresh perwals for me to try my hands on it. He told me the recipe which his friend shared with him. So here is my stuffed perwal .

French Fries

French fries, fries, or French-fried potatoes are thin strips of deep fried potatoes. Americans often refer to any large, tall or fat pieces of fried potatoes as fries, while in other parts of the world, long, thinly cut slices of fried potatoes are called fries to distinguish them from the thickly cut strips called chips.

Paneer Pakora

Pakoras can be made from nearly any vegetable be it, spinach, onions, cauliflowder, potatoes and even chillies by dipping them in the batter of besan (chickpea flour) and then deep-frying.   This is a very delicious snacks. This simple pakora is prepared with paneer peices coated with besan flour, spice powders and deep fried to golden crisp. 
Pakoras taste best when eaten hot. Chutney is the perfect accompaniment to this wonderful snack. This can be served as a tea time snack or as a starter.
There are several ways to make paneer pakora. Today I'm posting the method I used this time.

Dahi Vada-Lentil Dumplings in Yogurt

 I spent my growing up years  in a small town in India. Small towns, small buildings,  greener trees and wider skies . This town I am talking about was so small that it did not even have an air-conditioned restaurant. Though the town had no decent restaurant, but Dahi Vada chat from a small shop carries a big name. I can not think of visiting that town without  enjoying that chat....mouth watering.
 Dahi Vada is  an Indian 'chaat' item popular all over India. It can be served as a great starter or a cold appetizer. Dahi vadas are lentil (moong dal) based savory balls. The hot deep fried vadas are fist put in the warm water and then transfered to fresh beaten yogurt.  To add flavor, it can be topped with coriander leaves, chilli pd, black pepper pd, chat masala, cumin pd or boondi with tamarind chutney.
My love for Dahi Vada convinced me that Dahi Vada is "fried but not oily". I do fry it, though  soaking of the vada in water after the deep frying gets rid of most of the oil, I thinks! It can be my excuse to eat it more and more :-))

Cauliflower-Paneer Paratha

One of the easiest recipes that can be prepared for a breakfast (or in fact goes with any meal) is a stuffed paratha. They are very filling and can be served with butter, chatni, yogurt( dahi in hindi) or any dipping as per your taste. My daughter likes to eat it with jam or tomato ketchup.
This is most sought after dish in my family.
