For the stuffing

1 Broccoli

1-2 inch Ginger

IMG_8945 

Method

Make a soft dough out of the flour and water. Knead it till it becomes soft and smooth. Add oil into it.

Grate the Broccoli florets with the help of a grater. You can also grind the Broccoli in a grinder. In the grated broccoli add some salt and keep it aside for 5 mins. It will leave water, squeeze it tightly with your palms to remove excessive water.

Now heat a pan on medium heat and put 1-2 tbsp of olive oil into it. Once the oil heats up add the grated broccoli to it. Saute it for 2-3 minutes by adding some more salt, red chilli powder and garam masala. Once sauteed, put the heat off and take the mixture in a plate.

For the paratha, make a small ball from the dough and roll it to make a circle. Spread some flour and put the stuffing in the center of the rolled dough. The flour will absorb the excessive water of the stuffing. Now carefully close the paratha from the center so the the stuffing does not come out. Softly start rolling the paratha with light hands by dusting it with flour on both the sides.

 

On a medium heated tawa, cook the paratha from both sides. When you start observing brown spots, sprinke some oil and cook for some more time.

The Parathas are ready. Serve hot with green chutney or dahi!!

Enjoy

🙂 🙂 🙂

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 cup of dark chocolate chips or chunks

a pinch of salt

Method:

In a bowl, mix togetherbutter (at room temperature) and sugar. They can be mixed in a electric mixer. Mix them till they become light and fluffy, about 3-5 minutes. Add egg, vanilla extract and caramel syrup and beat for 1 more minute.

In a medium bowl whisk together all purpose flour and cocoa powder,baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Add the dry ingredients all at once to the butter and egg mixture. Mix them well for another 3-4 minutes.

Now add the chocolate chips. Put this mixture in the refrigerator for around 10 minutes.

Cover the baking tray with a baking sheet. Scoop the dough on the tray leaving about 2-inches between each dough ball.

Now put the cookie tray in a preheated oven (350 degrees F). Bake for 11 to 12 minutes or until cookies are just done.  It is even ok if these cookies are slightly under baked. Try not to over bake them.

Once the cookies are done, move them on a cooling tray. Let them cool & then enjoy the delicious cookies !!!

Tip: If brown sugar is not available, just increase the amount of  white sugar.

Instead of baking sheet, silver foil can also be used.

It is not necessary to put the dough in the refrigerator. Cookies can be bake directly. Putting the dough in refrigerator just makes it smoother.

ENJOY!!

Now take the slices of bread and cut its outer edges. If you wish you can use the whole bread without cutting its edges. Apply the paste on one surface of the bread slices.

Heat a pan on medium heat. Apply some butter or ghee on the pan. Now put the bread slices on the pan, with the mixture coated surface below. Toast the bread slices on medium or low heat as the semolina takes time to get cooked properly.

Toast the bread from both the sides till it is light brown in colour. Cut the bread slices in to desired shapes and serve hot with green chutney or tomato ketchup!!!!!

YAaaaayyyy…!! Enjoy!!
