Bombay Chutney with a twist

This chutney i learnt it from my m-inlaw who does this chuntey for poori or rotis when there are no veggies at home.My sister too does this but to eat it with idlies and she twisted the recipe by adding boiled potatoes to it.I blogged about this recipe before here and this is just addition of potatoes to this chutney and i am sure potatoes lovers will love this combination of besan and potatoes.


Onion 1 sliced
Green chillies 2 silted
Boiled potatoes chopped into big pieces 10 pcs
Ginger 1/2" pc
Besan/Chanaga pindi 5 tbsp
Lemon juice 2 tbsp

Rai 1/2 tsp
Red chillies 2
Curry leaves few


Mix besan with little water and keep aside.
Head kadai,add all the seasoning and when curry leaves are fried add ginger,onions and green chillies.Fry for just 2 minutes (don't fry it completely).
Add boiled potatoes and fry just about done,be careful not to fry completely.Add 2 cups of water.
Bring into boil.Add besan into the boiling water and stir simultaneously.Cook for 3-4 minutes until semi liquid.
Just before serving add lemon juice and serve it with rotis.

Oriental style Paratha

I am a big fan of sanjeev kapoor in particular his indian recipes.Even if the recipe is tough,he shows it in a simple way and his measurement if taken properly will never go wrong.I am yet to see his new cooking channel but heard about it a lot in FB.This recipe is from Sanjeev Kapoor website Sanjeevkapoor.com.I replaced maida with wheat flour as i don't use maida much at home other than using for baking cakes and muffins.Here goes Sanjeev kapoor recipe:-


Wheat flour 2 cups
Salt as per taste
Oil  3tbsp

For filling:-
Cabbage shredded finely 1 cup
Carrot grated 1 cup
Soy sauce 1/4 tsp
Beans chopped finely 1/2 cup
Pepper 1 tsp


Make a soft dough with wheat flour and salt.Set aside until use.

In a pan take oil,add cabbage,carrot and beans.Stir fry on high till the veggies change colour.Add soya sauce,pepper,sugar and salt.Mix well and fry until the veggies are dry and cooked.

Roll out a thick roti.Place 2tbsp of the stuffing and close the edges.

Flatten it and dust it with more flour and roll out until the stuffing is not seen

Fry both sides with oil.Serve hot with curd and chat masala.
