Sugar Stuffed Flat Breads(ಸಕ್ಕರೆ ಚಪಾತಿ )

Tried and tasted by Nivedita
Hi All,
This one is nostalgic. I love these chapatis. It was very regular in my house. My mom used to make these a lot. Me and my brother were always happy to eat these rolls. 
Unfortunately, my kids don't like sweet. So this one remained only in my memories( Me too scared of having the whole sugar or powder more!) 
The other day I suddenly felt like having it and here it is :-)
What am I talking about? Sugar stuffed flat breads.. We call it "Sakre Chapati" in Kannada..

Ingredients:
Wheat flour - 1 cup
Salt a pinch
Water to make the dough ready

For Stuffing
Powdered sugar - 1 tbsp for each chapati
Ghee or Butter - 1 tsp for each chapati + 1 tsp for frying or roasting



Method:
  • Prepare the wheat flour dough by adding little by little water. The dough should be soft. 
  • Divide into equal lime size balls.
  • First Method:
  • Take one ball and roll into small circle(small puri size)
  • Take one more and repeat.
  • On one rolled puri, spread ghee or butter and on another spread the powdered sugar.
  • Keep the buttered one on the sugar stuffed puri and close it tight.
  • Slowly dust it with the flour and roll in to medium sized chapatis.
  • Keep the tawa on heat.
  • Roast it on both the sides and apply or drizzle ghee on it before removing it.
  • Repeat with remaining dough.
  • Second Method
  • Roll three small size puris.
  • Spread one tsp butter or ghee on first one.
  • Keep the other puri on it and close it.
  • Spread the sugar powder on it.
  • Close it tight with other puri.
  • Roll it(as shown in the photo)
  • and again roll it to give round shape.
  • Do it slowly.
  • Roll into medium size chapati and roast it.
  • Serve hot with spicy pickle or pack and take it while travelling.
  • Best breakfast for kids and me:-)

ALOO PATTICE (Re posting)

Tried and tasted by Nivedita
Hi All,
If you really know me and follow my blog, you know that I am a person who finishes the work at the last minute. As the last date is nearing  for any contest puts me into pressure and I do the cooking or posting.
Here is a recipe which I am re posting it for my dearest Jagruti. But Promising that next two days are only for her... for her ongoing event  :I'm well stuffed.

Directly going to the recipe,( Aloo Pattice  is the original post)
Ingredients:

Potato -4 big
Haldi - 1/2 tsp
Kiraksali - 3 bunch(Washed, cleaned and finely chopped)
(In Harsha Bennur's blog (http://girmitt.wordpress.com/2008/07/25/roasted-kirkasaali-tandulsa/), he has given the name as Tandulsa for Kiraksali, I do not know which language it is.)
Green Pea(fresh or frozen) - 1/2 cup
Green chilly - 3 small chopped
Curry leaves - few chopped
Raisins - 8 to 10
Cashew nuts - 8 to 10 cut into pieces (optional)
Khus khus(poppy seeds) - 2 tbsp
Oil - 1 tbsp
Dalda or Vanaspati - 1 tbsp
Salt to taste
Lime juice - 1 tsp
Rice flour to dust the pattice
Oil to fry the pattice

Method:
Boil the potatoes. When cool, mash it. Add little salt (1 tsp) and haldi, mix it properly and keep it aside.
Heat oil and vanaspati in kadai, add curry leaves, peas (if frozen, keep it out of the fridge for 10 minutes before using it), green chilly. Saute it for a minute, now add raisins, cashew nuts and poppy seeds. After a minute add kiraksali. Add salt and haldi. Mix it and let it cook till the green leaves are cooked. Now add lime juice and mix it and keep it aside.
Next step is to make pattice and fry them in oil.
Make equal size(Big lemon size) of mashed potato. Take one, and press it on your palm to make it flat. Stuff it with ready leafy vegetable. Take care to cover full vegetable with potato. Otherwise all the masala will come out while frying. Do for all the potato balls. Dust the ready balls with rice flour.
Now, heat the oil in kadai. When hot, fry the pattice one by one till golden color.
4 to 6 pattice can be prepared with this quantity.
