Pudachi Wadi | Coriander Rolls for ICC April

Tried and tasted by Nivedita 
Hi All,
This is frustrating........ Yesterday I kept the whole draft saved for ICC. Now its gone. Thanks to
Again I need to write down. I don't mind rewriting,. But time is the main problem. Tomorrow I am going out of station and will be back in the night and no time to write in detail. Even my saved draft did not had detailed recipe.
(hey I got the saved draft back in my blog, but I am posting the new one with few lines taken from the old draft.)
Last month I could not attend the challenge as I was in holiday mood. But this time again I am back for Indian Cooking Challenge for April month and Srivalli has chosen the traditional Maharashtrian dish Pudachi Wadi(Coriander rolls) The recipe is taken from Archana of Tried & Tested Recipes.
I loved these wadi or rolls. I had never tasted these. And, I loved the stuffing as I always feel fresh with its freshness and its aroma. Now, this recipe in my menu for an extra snack for guests. Thanks Valli for choosing this recipe for the challenge.

  • The recipe is simple but the trick or challenge is to roll out THIN phulka or puris AND covering these properly after you stuff the coriander masala in it. 
  • And then comes roasting the wadis on tawa, BE CAREFUL to roast on low flame or else your wadis will have black spots.
  • I am not going to write down the whole recipe but you can check Valli's  link for the detailed recipe.
My pictorial recipe:
The wheat flour and gramflour atta with hot oil, the onion and fresh coriander masala, Tamarind paste, garam masala and oil paste.

 dough rolled into puri size, tamarind paste spread and coriander masala stuff.

The roasted wadi.

Another shape of wadi(followed Archana )

The triangle shape wadi is getting fried.

Both shape wadis before getting cut.

Wadi's ready to serve with green chutney or sauce. 
I loved the challenge and as usual waiting for the next challenge and I hope to participate also :-)

Keep Smiling,

Plain green biryani rice

Tried and tasted by Nivedita
Hi all,
When I prepared this rice few weeks back, my daughter was like "wow mamma, only chicken pieces are missing in this" She was happy to have this rice after many months.

After coming to India, as I stopped preparing non veg, I totally forgot about this rice. As I have told before, my daughter loves to take rice for her lunch box, I am learning to make varieties. And suddenly this rice came in my mind. When in UAE, I used to make this rice  with  chicken or meat curry.
Now a days,  once a week, this rice is in her lunch box.
Here, I prepared plain with one small potato. If you want you can add Soya nuggets in this.

Coming to the recipe,
Any long grain rice - 1 cup, washed and kept aside.
Onion - 1 cut into long thin slices
Bay leaf - 1
Oil - 2 tbsp
Salt to taste
Water to cook the rice
For grinding,
Fresh coriander - 1 small bunch or 1 cup
Green chilly - 2 to 3 as per your taste or depending upon chilly
Ginger - 1" piece
Garlic - 1 small bulb, peeled
Jeera - 1tsp
Cinnamon - 1/2" piece
Cloves - 3
Cardamom - 1
Put all these in a grinder and make it into fine paste.

Heat oil in a cooker or kadai (I prefer cooker). When hot, add onion and cook till brown. Now add bay leaf and the ready paste and fry for 5 minutes. When you start getting aroma add rice and salt. Fry for a minute. Add water till the rice level. Close the lid and give two whistles.

You open the lid and the aroma will take you  in another world!!!

Keep smiling,
