Tried and Tasted on Tuesday's: Dec 21st 2010

Today is Tuesday and I am back today with a delicious dish that I tried and tasted in my kitchen following the recipe shared by one of my wonderful blog pal who presents her delicious dishes beautifully.This is a very healthy dish that could be made instantly and is ready in 30 minutes from start to finish.

Without further ado here is the bookmarked dish of the day--------

1)  Instant Quinoa Idli from Taste of Pearl City by Umm Mymoonah .

This was a very simple and easy to make dish and was a instant hit.We all enjoyed eating this delicious Instant Quinoa Idli with chutney.I followed most of her recipe as is except that I made the following changes:

I used red quinoa grains instead of regular quinoa and also used 1 cup sooji instead of 1/2 cup.I also added crushed ginger along with chillies to the batter.I also added 1/4 cup of grated carrot , a pinch of asafoetida,1/2tsp of ajwain(carom) seeds and few toasted cashews to the batter.

Thank you Umm Mymoonah for sharing this delicious and healthy dish with us.Please visit her blog for the recipe tried here today and also for many delicious dishes she has in store for us to try and to experiment.Will be back next week with more tried and tasted recipes.

This goes to Bookmarked on Tuesdays Event hosted by Priya Mitharwal .

Fried Baby Potatoes---Mom's Special Dish

I definitely have been missing many blog events and all the blog pals from around the world for the past few months.I am very thankful to all the blog visitors and blog pals for being around and supporting me even during my irregular presence.Thank you friends,there is a lot of catching up to do.

My mother is visiting us and we all have been enjoying and relishing mom's cooking for the past two months.A lot of simple and traditional dishes have become a part of our cuisine.Well, some dishes do include the use of deep frying and others are authentic dishes passed on to us from generations.So enjoying various dishes from mom's magic hand from modern dishes to traditional recipes.

For the past many years I was so busy taking caring of my little ones and forgot how nice it really feels to be taken care of.It definitely feels out-of-the world when your mom is here with you.It feels like being taken care of again and I feel like I have become a little kid around her asking her to prepare my favorite dishes and sometimes even enjoying her feeding me:-) .It's an awesome feeling to have my mom here with us and spend time with  all of us. 

The dish I am sharing today is a very favorite dish for all of us.It's simple and easy to make and yummy to taste.Let us see how this simple dish is made------

Main Ingredients :
Baby Potatoes....................1lb
Canola Oil..........................5tbsp
Salt.....................................to taste
Cumin flavored Paprika.......to taste

First clean the potatoes under cold water and boil them.Once the potatoes are boiled , peel the skin off them and keep them aside.Place a pan on the stove on medium-high heat and add oil.Once the oil is hot add the potaoes to the pan and let them fry for few miutes.(In the starting we want the heat to be on high so that the potatoes don't get mushy).

After few minutes slowly the potatoes start to turn golden in color.At this point turn the stove to medium heat so that the inside of the potatoes also gets cooked well and the outside stays crispier without burning.

After few minutes you can see that the potatoes have cooked well and turned crispier.Now you can tranfer the extra oil from the pan(after frying) to a bowl.You can see that there is no oil in the pan below.Now add salt and cumin-flavored paprika to the fried baby potatoes and stir for a minute and switch off the stove.

Crispy and delicious fried baby potatoes are ready to be served with hot rice and ghee.Believe me, if you leave them on the table they will all be gone before you even start your meal.Enjoy!
