EVERYDAY CHOCOLATE BROWNIE(FOOD REMAKE)

Tried and tasted by Nivedita
Hi All,
I know, I know, its not the time to post the recipe of Cakes and brownies... Its Diwali, I should post the recipe of some sweets and savories. But just thought of sharing a recipe with Demerara sugar and then I can share other recipes.
The brownies are very common in my house. Its almost once in 10 days , I bake the brownie. I got the recipe of Every day Chocolate Brownie from Aarthi which she had taken from one and only Nigella... I love her recipes, most of the times I have to read her recipes and be happy because I do not get many of the ingredients she has mentioned in my town :-(


Even Aarthi has got the fantastic space and the best part is all of her recipes are step by step in pictorial way which helps any one to remember and cook easily. Thanks a lot for that dear.
Coming to the recipe,
Usually I follow the regular recipe but today I thought of  giving a twist to it.. only because I wanted to use Demerara sugar instead of white or normal sugar. And I added the instant Bru Coffee powder at the end.

THE BEST SOFT AND MOIST BROWNIE I EVER MADE :-)
Ingredients:

All purpose flour - 2/3 cup
Demerara Sugar - 3/4 cup(coarse powdered)
Cocoa powder - 1/2 cup
Eggs -2 
Butter - 1/2 cup or little less
Baking soda - 1/2 tsp
Salt a pinch(skip if you are using salted butter, I always use salted Amul butter)
Vanilla essence - 2 tsp
any chocolate - 100 gm
(I like to use the cooking chocolate itself )
Instant coffee powder(Bru or Nescafe)- 1 tbsp


Method:

  • First preheat the oven to 190 degree c
  • Line a square tin with foil and brush it with butter on it. (Using foil is really a very good idea)
  • I use Microwave for making it, you can use the normal way(as shown in Aarthi's space)
  • Take a big M/W safe bowl.
  • Add butter and the sugar.
  • Keep in M/W on HIGH for a minute.
  • Remove, mix well and add cocoa powder. Keep in the oven for 10 seconds. 
  • Remove, add in the flour, baking soda and mix well to make it soft.
  • ALLOW IT TO COOL WHICH IS REALLY VERY IMPORTANT OTHERWISE IF YOU PUT EGGS WHEN HOT,  IT WILL BE SPOILED.
  • Now add the eggs, vanilla and mix well till you get very smooth consistency.
  • Fold in the chocolate pieces and mix well.
  • Now pour this mix into the ready tin.
  • Sprinkle the instant powder evenly on the mix.
  • Bake it in the oven for 20 minutes. 
  • Allow it to cool. Cut into desired size of squares. 
  • Enjoy it cold or warm or with ice cream or hot chocolate sauce.
Note :May be because I used the Demerara sugar, it was less sweet or may be it was because I used instant coffee powder. Whatever, the brownies were too good :-)
Wait for my next post with these brownies...
Brownie and Ice cream sandwich.. with hot choco sauce..


This is my first entry to my event which is a brain child of Jagruti

AN EVENT ANNOUNCEMENT~KNOW YOUR NATURAL SWEETNESS~MAPLE SYRUP OR DEMERARA SUGAR

Tried and tasted by Nivedita
Hi All,
Its more than a year that I hosted any event. Before, my blog had at least one event in a month and I always enjoyed participating in the events hosted by other blogging friends. Those events always encouraged me to try new recipes and I enjoyed those challenges.
Now a days, because of some personal hindrances, I am not able to post regularly any thing, forget participating or hosting any event.
Few months back, when Jagruti asked me whether I am interested in hosting her event I could not say no because I wanted to come back again and its always pleasure to host her event. She is a lady with so much enthusiasm.Check her blog and you will come to know, her site is hosting many events at a time with different and unique themes.
Coming to my theme for the event Announcing Series event~Know Your Natural Sweetness by Jagruti,
I have chosen two sweets!! yes!, Maple Syrup OR Demerara Sugar
To be honest, till today I have not tried Maple syrup in any recipes, so its new challenge for me. I have not tasted also how it tastes. Still I need to search for the Maple syrup in my town and not sure about getting it.
When I went through Wikipedia, I was surprised to see that maple syrup is extracted from maple tree. And its less in calorie!! That makes it more interesting.There are many things we don't know!! Click here to know more about maple syrup.
Demerara sugar is commonly used in baking substituting the white sugar for many reasons. Its known as natural brown sugar.


I am inviting you all to take part in the event..

SOYA BEANS IDLY

Tried and tasted by Nivedita
Hi All,
Idly recipe(Idly, Sambhar and Chutney) is already there in my blog.. but that is a regular method of making.. Here is another way of making your healthy idly healthier or healthiest... Yes, Soya beans are very good for health. We always think how to add these in our diet. I have many ways for it..
Soak the beans for 8-10 hours, drain and deep fry in the oil  or roast in the oven, add salt and chilly powder.
Make the soya beans powder and add it while making chapatis, Thaali peeth.
Or as usual make the curry, masala, salad...
These idly taste very good, same like normal idly. And the batter wont turn sour next day(it happens with the normal batter)

Ingredients:
Urad dal - 1/2 cup or 1/4 cup
Soya beans - 1/2 cup or 3/4 cup
Methi seeds - 1 tsp
Thick poha(puffed rice) - handful
Idly rava - 2 1/2 cup(ready available in the stores)
Salt to taste 
(the proportion is  1/2:1/2: 2 1/2 or 1/4:3/4:2 1/2)
If you are trying for the first time and not sure about the taste of soya beans in idly, go with 1/2:1/2 portion.

Method:
Soak urad dal, soya beans and methi seeds together in a vessel with enough water for 4-6 hours.(both the urad dal and beans get doubled in size in few hours and there is a chance that if you don't see they wont get soaked properly. JUST ONE HOUR BEFORE GRINDING, ADD POHA INTO IT.
Drain the water and grind into fine batter.
Transfer into a big steel vessel. Add the salt and mix nicely with your hands.
Keep it untouched in a warm place for 6 to 8 hours(In winter it takes more time)


Before making idly,
Add the water in a cooker and keep it on slow flame till you fill the idly mould with the batter.
Mix the batter properly, grease the idly plates with oil, Pour the batter to fill the moulds.
Keep it in the cooker and close the lid WITHOUT whistle.
Steam for 6 minutes on high and another 3-4 minutes on low flame.
Remove from the heat, allow it to cool.
Carefully open the lid and take out the idly stand.
Keep it like that only for 5 minutes. Then remove the idlys into a serving bowl.
Enjoy these softest idlys with Onion sambhar and chutney,.
(recipe for the sambhar and chutney is in my previous idly post)
Just add baby onions in oil before adding the masalas, which will make the sambhar into onion sambhar.

I love it....

SPICY SPROUTED FENUGREEK SEEDS MASALA

Tried and tasted by Nivedita
Hi All,
They say sprouts is good for health. Any sprouts? I am not sure, but this one is really a healthy sprout and I enjoy having it a lot.
Thrice a week I have a habit of having a tea spoon of methi seeds in the morning with hot water. I love methi seeds and never miss any chance of adding it into our food. I add it in curries, sambhar, dal, sometimes in some sabji. So how about making the whole curry with methi seeds. But that will go directly in to the dustbin as these seeds are very bitter if prepared directly. So the best way is to soak them, allow to sprout and then use in a spicy, tangy dry curry.
Fenugreek seeds have their unique taste and contribute a huge part when comes to health. Its good for diabetes. It controls the diabetes to some extent(of course with other intakes or controlled diet)
If we take a tea spoon of methi seeds with a glass of water when suffering with diarrhea, it comes under control. 
Soak the seeds in the night and paste it in the morning. Apply it to the hair for an hour and wash it, a very good tonic for your hair.  

Ingredients:

Cumin seeds - 1 tsp
Mustard seeds - 1 tsp(optional)
Onion -2 big, finely chopped
Tomato - 1 big, finely chopped
Ginger-garlic paste - 1 tbsp
Green chilly - 2 slit
Salt to taste
Red chilly powder - 2 tbsp
Turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp
Garam Masala powder - 1 tsp
Jaggery - 1 tsp
water - 1/2 cup
Fresh coriander to garnish

Method:
  • Heat oil in a thick bottomed kadai.
  • Add cumin seeds and Mustard seeds. 
  • Add onion and fry till brown. Keep on stirring.
  • Add Ginger and garlic paste. fry for a minute.

Fine Semolina and Oats Ladoo

Tried and tasted by Nivedita
Hi All,
A healthy and tasty Ladoo. And the easiest also. 
These were very common in our house during my childhood. Usually fresh coconut is also added in this but I like it the plain. And as we know the Oats now, I have tried adding the Oats powder. I never miss any chance to add Oats in my food preparation. 

To make 8(big) or 10(small) ladoos
Ingredients:
Fine Semolina (Bombay rawa) - 1 cup
Oats powder - 1/4 cup(can add more and reduce the qty of rawa)
Sugar - 3/4 cup
Water - 1/2 cup
Ghee - 1 tsp
Cardamom powder - 1 tsp
Almonds and cashew nut powder - 2 tbsp
OR 
Add whole cashew nuts(I used the powder as my younger daughter never likes dry fruits to eat directly.)


Method:
  • Roast the semolina and oats powder till you get nice aroma. This is must as it allows the ladoos to become softer.
  • Transfer into a wide plate and allow to cool.
  • While roasting the rawa, keep the sugar and water to boil.
  • Allow it to boil till you get one thread consistency. It may take almost 15 minutes.
  • Once the syrup is ready, remove from the heat and allow it to be warm.(This is very IMPORTANT)or else you will end up with making Semolina halwa :-)
  • Add nuts powder, cardamom and ghee to the semolina and oats powder. Mix well.

Now,
  • Slowly spread the half of the  syrup to the semolina mix. Mix well and keep it aside for 2 minutes.Try making the ladoos. If not possible, add some more syrup and mix well. Take little amount of the mixture and try to make into ladoos. This time you should get it. Repeat with the remained mix. 
  • Keep in a plate and allow to cool. 
  • Store in a dry place. You can keep it for a week also.


 Sending it again to Jagruti's event,

Rice flour and Oats Porridge

Tried and tasted by Nivedita
Hi All,
I am blessed with the kids who are not very fussy about the food. The little one is little choosy but always prefers the good food. Both are not much into junk food.
Everyday she should be ready by 7:20 in the morning, I should be always ready with her breakfast before 6:30. Usually I ask her what she would like to have in the morning for breakfast and will make according to that. Am I giving too much choice to her!! But, I feel the breakfast is the first food in the morning and I want her to have it full and enjoy it too. Anyways, her lunch is always my choice so I am not worried about the strict laws.
Coming to today's recipe, my younger one loves this! Porridge :-), I prepare porridge with fine semolina, oats, rice flour, ready idly batter.. She loves everything.
Today is the time to share the recipe of Rice flour and oats porridge. Its very easy and I know many of you also make it.
Here is my version,
The recipe is for one cup

Ingredients:
Rice flour - 1/4 cup
Oats or Oats powder- 3 tbsp
Water - 1/4 cup
Milk  - 1/4 cup
Salt to taste
Pepper powder - 1/2 tsp(do not add if giving for younger children)
A pinch of hing or cumin powder(optional)
Ghee - 1 tsp to serve



Method:

  • Take the water and milk in a thick bottomed vessel keep to boil.
  • When it starts boiling, add the rice powder and oats, keep stirring as there is a chance of getting rice flour lumps. 
  • Once it is mixed well, keep on low flame and cook for few more minutes. Keep watching for the water consistency. Add some more water if you feel the porridge has become more thick or its still not cooked.
  • Add hing or cumin powder and pepper powder.

Stuffed Noodles, 3 ways(reposted)

Tried and tasted by Nivedita
Hi All,
As usual, my last minute entry for the event.  Re posting  the whole post after editing it as the old one is very lengthy. 
Noodles are mom's best friend in the world. Kids love noodles in any form and with anything. My friend Vaishaly and I tried this together. After trying few shapes and the way of cooking we decided to make veggie noodles rolls for the competition.
Interesting thing in this is that the masala mix is the same, only the way of stuffing and cooking is different. Choose the one you want!!




First is the recipe for making masala mix :
For Stuffing:
Mixed Vegetables – 200 gm
(Carrot, Cauliflower florets, Capsicum, Cucumber, Onion, Sweet Corn, Peas, Beans, thinly sliced cabbage)
Garlic – 2 cloves, chopped
Green Chilly - 2 finely chopped
Red chilly flakes – 1tsp
Salt to taste                 
Oil – 1 tbsp

For Sauce:
Tomato Ketchup – ½ cup
White vinegar – ½ tsp
Red Chilly flakes - 1 tsp
Maggi veg.cube – 1
Black pepper powder – ½ tsp
Mix all the ingredients for sauce in a bowl and keep it aside.

For Batter
Corn flour – 3 tbsp
Veg. Stock – 1 cup
Mix it in a bowl and use as required

For the layers:
Flat noodles – 2 packets

(you can mix the normal one also)
Salt to taste
Maggi veg.cube – 1
Corn flour – 1 tbsp
Black pepper powder – ½ tsp
Mozzarella cheese to spread
Butter

Method:


To make Vegetable mix masala:
  • Heat the oil in Microwave safe dish on HIGH for 2 minutes.
  • Add chopped garlic and keep it back in oven on HIGH for a minute.
  • Add mixed vegetables. Sauté it and keep on HIGH for 5minutes. Keep on stirring in between.
  • Add the butter, ready sauce, batter and half the quantity of Veg. stock.
  • Keep back in oven on HIGH for 2 minutes. Stir it after one minute.
  • Check it after 2 minutes. If the mix is slightly thick remove it or keep again for one minute.
  • Cool it.  Divide it into equal quantity for stuffing.
To cook the noodles:
  • Boil the water with salt in a microwave safe dish on HIGH FOR 2 minutes.
  • Add Maggi Veg cube, salt and flat noodles and boil on HIGH for 1 minute.
  • Be careful not to over cook the noodles.  The noodles should be paraboiled.
  • Remove, drain the water and transfer it into colander. Pour cold water on the noodles and drain it properly to remove all the water. Sprinkle powdered Veg cube, corn flour and pepper powder. Mix properly and keep it aside.
To  Make Idly:

Making stuffed noodles idly was my idea and tasted great too. Check out the photos.

  • Take the Microwave safe idly plate. Spread the noodles in a thin layer. 
  • Take a tbsp of masala and keep it in the middle. Spread the mozzarella cheese on the top. Cover it with another thin layer of noodles. Repeat with all the moulds.
  • Keep it covered on HIGH for 3 minutes. Remove and allow it to cool. 
  • Stuffed noodles idly are ready to serve.

To stuff the roll:
  • Divide the noodles according to the size of the roll you want to make.
  • Take one portion; spread it on an even plate to make a round shape.
  • Press with wet hand to combine it.
  • Spread the grated cheese to make a thin layer.
  • Keep the ready vegetable mix in the center.
  • Cover it to give the roll shape. Apply the corn flour batter to close it properly.
  • Brush it with butter.
  • Repeat with other rolls.
  • Brush the microwave safe big plate. Keep the rolls in it.
  • Bake it oh HIGH for 3 minutes. Open and turn the rolls. Brush with butter. Again bake it on HIGH for few more minutes.
  • Allow to cool.
  • Serve with Ketchup or sauce.


Going little oily,
Take the stuffed idly shaped noodles, fry in the hot oil and serve it with ketchup or sauce.
