How to Make Egg Roll

Egg Roll Recipe

It is one of the favorites to eat when you are strolling in market. They even say Kolkata rolls are the best, well I would not disagree because I have tasted them. But what if you want to make these egg rolls at home? Well, not the Kolkata style but easy basic egg roll. There are so many varieties of egg rolls. Find out here more about egg rolls.

This is what I am going to share with you. Nothing rocket science about it and the fillings that I will tell you about are the regular ones. You can try other things but then the regular fillings are the ones to beat.

How to make Egg roll
Egg Roll
Egg Roll is something that everyone loves with their ketchup and green chutney. But I don't like these sauces and chutneys. I feel they make the roll soggy. I like it crispy.

A roll should be crispy outside and till the last bite. That is what I feel.

Recipe

Ingredients:
  1. Maida or Refined Flour
  2. 1 egg per roll.
  3. Shredded Cabbage
  4. Sliced onions.
  5. Shredded Capsicum
  6. Any other vegetables if you want.
  7. Salt
  8. Chaat Masala
  9. Green Chutney if you like it or any other chutney/sauce.

Chicken Chargha

How to cook Chargha

Hi People,

How are you? 

Well, Navratri is over and I celebrated it with inviting my sisters and their kids over and made one of my favorite chicken recipes. Kids prefer something snacky or gravy-less because somehow it appeals more to them and well to me as well. So, I decided to make Chicken Chargha, a typical Pakistani dish which is so wonderful that I have cooked it so many times at home.

Chargha is a deep fried chicken dish from Lahore, Pakistan. The authentic Chargha is little different from what I have done and used pot steam process from my Chicken Roast Recipe (click for recipe) dish as a variation. Best part is that it is cooked as whole chicken and I loooooooooooooooooooveeeeeeeeeeee cooking whole chicken. I don't know but there is so much fun in it!!! :P

Apart from the process, I have also done some variation in spices that I have used but I have kept very similar in taste which is mild and not too spicy. But, having said that, you can make it spicy if you wish to. But what really excites in this dish is the juicy and succulent meat inside and crispy outer layer. It is just too good. Also, it involves deep frying, so I really won't say that it is healthy!!

Anyway, lets get to the recipe:

Recipe

Ingredients:
  1. Whole Chicken about 1 KG.
  2. Salt as per taste.
  3. 1 table spoons Degi or Kashmiri Red chilli powder.
  4. 1 table spoon Garam Masala
  5. 1 table spoon coriander powder.
  6. 1 tea spoon Cardamom powder
  7. 1 tea spoon cinnamon powder.
  8. Oil for deep frying the chicken

Chicken Recipes using Chicken Breast.

I have always found Chicken breast to be one of the easiest cuts to work with. It is so dynamic and versatile in nature that you can do wonders. All you need is your imagination and you can win hearts with the results using your improvisation and innovation. It cooks fast, easy to manage while eating, it's everyone's favorite.

My wife actually loves continental and I love non-veg. So, whenever I want to cook for my wife, first thing comes to my mind is how can I do something new with chicken breast.

But today, I will make it easier for you by sharing my best 5 recipes which I have done using chicken breast. You will see how different they are but basics are almost same. Some are stuffed, some are pan fried, some are baked in oven.

Piri Piri Chicken

Piri Piri Chicken or Piri Piri Chicken Recipe


Portugese had ruled Goa for a very long time and were involved in spice trade. It was them who made a wonderful spice mix called Peri Peri or Piri Piri which literally means Pepper Pepper in Portugese. So, as the name suggests it has to be spicy. And Peri Peri Chicken was something that has always fascinated me and this time I got the chance to make it. The bright red color, the aroma of the peri peri spice mix. Its just so wonderful. It is totally different from what I have been cooking in that versatile pan in my kitchen.

As I have been mentioning in my previous posts, making these european/english dishes is super damn easy. They are not complicated like Indian cuisine. It stands true for this cracker of a dish too.

Piri Piri Chicken

Now, the main part of this dish is making the Piri Piri Spice Mix or the Piri Piri rub, whatever you might want to call it because that's what gives it the amazing taste. Rest all is basic.

Now that you have made the spice mix, let's start with the recipe:

Ingredients:

  1. Piri Piri Spice Mix. Click for recipe.
  2. 2 chicken breasts.
  3. Oil for cooking.
  4. 1 big garlic clove.
  5. Chopped Veggies: Cauliflower, Carrots, Beans (get french beans if you can), Capsicum (funnily I had it ready but forgot to add). But veggies are totally based on your liking.
  6. Mixed herbs. Can be easily had from any store.
  7. Salt.

Butter Garlic Prawns

Butter Garlic Prawns is one of the simplest and fastest recipes I have made which has amazing flavor and natural wonderful aroma of Prawns when they are cooked.


One thing that I have always loved but seldom get to eat is Prawns. My mother-in-law stays in Orissa and cooks amazing Prawn curry. But if you know me well, I am not really curry person. So, today I bought prawns, as I am in Delhi, and thought, OK, let me try Butter Garlic Prawns.


Butter Garlic Prawns
Butter Garlic Prawns

I had the best prawns of my life in a restaurant in Puducherry (formerly Pondicherry). They were Golden Fried Prawns and I was totally bowled over by them. I never had those kinda prawns ever again.

So, with Butter Garlic Prawns or Shrimps, I did not even try to match it. Anyway, its a different recipe but It came out good, in fact too good. The wonderful warm taste of garlic and the natural taste and bite of prawns make it super delicious and the butter makes it so much glossy and juicy. It's a perfect sea food snack to be had with amazingly chilled beer in afternoon. Oh my, I am thinking of Goa here!

Butter Garlic Prawns

Let me take you through the recipe now:

Ingredients:

  1. 10-12 small Prawns: de-shelled and de-veined. This is very important. If you do not know how to do it, ask the person at the shop to do it. You can also buy packed prawns/shrimps which are already de-shelled and de-veined.
  2. Butter - 1 tablespoon.
  3. Finely chopped garlic.
  4. Salt and black pepper.
  5. Half a lemon juice.
  6. Coriander for garnishing.

Mutton Korma Recipe

Mutton Korma or Mutton Korma Recipe


When it comes to serious cooking, cooking mutton poses real challenge. I got this legacy of cooking mutton and well done mutton from my father who would cook up a storm in kitchen every time my mom went out for 2-3 days leaving dad and me alone. He would cook up cracker of non veg dishes, especially mutton. He would just cook mutton slow. That's how you give time for the spices and mutton to bind and get to know each other and end up in Happy Matrimony! Spicy Mutton Korma is one dish like this.

Fish with Pesto Sauce

Fish with Pesto Sauce recipe


Hi,

My wife is Odiya and she loves her fish. She makes that wonderful fish in mustard seeds gravy though I am not a big fan of fish with gravy. I like my fish to be pan friend or simply fried. Just few days back I shared the classic Fish & Chips Recipe.


Fish with Pesto Sauce
Pan Fried Fish with Pesto Sauce


I have had some inclination to make continental and European food and made this wonderful Pan Fried Fish with Pesto Sauce. Thought of sharing it with you folks here on my blog, after all, love is when you share.

The star of the dish was the Pesto Sauce which made my hardcore Punjabi food loving mom say WOW! So, you can imagine how good it was! This sauce is full of strong flavor of different herbs and nuts, truly amazing and it is sharp. 


Pan Fried Fish with Pesto Sauce

Here it is, Pan Fried fish with Pesto Sauce recipe:


Pan Fried Fish with Pesto Sauce

Pan Fried Fish with Pesto Sauce recipe. Amazingly easy and even more amazingly delicious

Prep time:
Cook time:
Total time:
Yield: Serves 2

Ingredients:
Fish Fillets. Well, you can use any fish that you want which can be filleted and doesn't have those tiny bones. I used Singhara (Cat Fish).
Mixed Dried herbs.
Salt and Pepper.
2-3 tablespoons oil to pan fry the fillets.
Basil leaves.
Mint Leaves
4-5 Garlic cloves
Walnuts. You may use Cashew nut as well if you don't have walnut.
Olive oil.

Method:
  1. First, we will make the Pesto sauce and It is very simple.
  2. Mix Basil, Mint leaves, Garlic cloves, 1 table spoon of olive oil, Walnuts, little salt and pepper in a grinder.
  3. Grind it well but not to a fine paste. You should grind it only to the level where you can feel the grains of walnut. It should have a nutty bite.
  4. Your Pesto Sauce is ready. Keep it aside.
  5. Now, season the fillets with Salt, Pepper and Mixed herbs.
  6. Heat oil in the pan. Though make sure oil is not too hot. We will cook it on medium heat else on high heat fish will burn from outside and won't cook from inside.
  7. Sear the fillets and cook for 5 -7 minutes from both sides. Do check how well your fish is done. It should be white and fibery from inside once cooked. If it's pale or off white, its not cooked.
  8. Once done, using a spoon, smear the pesto Sauce on one side while the fish is in the pan. Let it cook for another 2 minutes for the fish to absorb some flavors of the sauce.
  9. Serve it hot.

Now, once you take a bite, I assure you, you will have a totally different warm taste of pesto. The garlic flavor really comes out along with aroma of basil. Serve it to your guests at home and they will go bonkers.

I hope you liked the recipe. If you wish to continue getting more recipes, do subscribe to my blog and also leave your comments below.

Love,

Kacche Gosht ki Dum Biryani

Now this one is all time favorite of everyone who loves his/her non-veg! But then why do I call it Kacche Gosht ki Dum Biryani?

Gosht Dum Biryani
Gosht Dum Biryani


It is called so not because it has raw meat, LOL! But because mutton is not cooked separately but with the rice. Normally in other Biryanis, mutton/chicken would be prepared separately and then mixed with rice and cooked further.

Dum Biryani
The rice and mutton are sealed like this and cooked on Dum.
But let me also tell you, cooking Biryani is a tough task. It is a long process and you just cannot perfect it the first time. But, the result would be worth the effort.

The first time I cooked it, my house was filled with such aroma and fragrance I had never felt before. My brother-in-law whom I invited for dinner mentioned to me at the door itself that it's fragrance is filled to the staircase. I could imagine my neighbors enjoying it too!



Anyways, lets get to the Dum Gosht Biryani recipe:

Gosht Dum Biryani



By

Rice cooked in it's own Dum (steam) in indian spices along with marinated meat.

Prep time:
Cook time:
Total time:
Yield: Serves 4

Ingredients:
750 grams Mutton with bone
Basmati Rice 600 grams
4 tablespoons Desi Ghee or clarified butter
1 tablespoon Jeera or Cumin Seeds
1 tablespoon Ginger Garlic Paste
Salt to Taste
1 tablespoon Red Chilli Powder
1 tablespoon Garam Masala
1 teaspoon of Turmeric Powder
1 tablespoon of Dhaniya powder or Coriandar Powder
1 teaspoon of Nutmeg Powder
1 cup of Hung Curd
flour Dough to seal the pan
1 Onion, sliced, deep fried and browned
4 tablespoons Kewda Water
4 tablespoons Rose Water
Pinch of Saffron mixed in i small cup of milk
Chopped Coriandar


Method:
Marinade:
  1. We will marinade the mutton in the patila that we are gonna cook the Biryani in. Refer to picture above, I had used aluminium patila with thick base which is very important as it will save your mutton from burning.
  2. Put the mutton and hung Curd in and add all masalas in point # 5 in ingredients list except nutmeg powder.
  3. Add some ghee and ginger garlic paste.
  4. Mix well ensuring marinade covers all the mutton completely.
  5. Do taste the marinade as after this you will not be able to alter the taste. I wanted my Biryani to be spicy so I ensured that marinade was very spicy because this will also mix with rice. So, if your marinade doesn't have the spice, your Biryani will turn bland. Same with the salt.
  6. Leave it to marinade for at least 2 hours.

Gustaba - The Kashmiri King

Gustaba Recipe or How to make Gustaba

The one cuisine that I have been itching to try was Kashmiricuisine. I have heard about it so much from my wife and my friend. Especially I had heard about Gustaba and Rista. I even had Gustaba at Delhi Haat few months back and just loved it. It was so different from the usual north Indian cuisine and really non-spicy but yeah, extremely rich. I knew I had to make it one day and this weekend I did. And guess what, nailed it in first go because though it involves a lot of steps, it is extremely simple.

Kashmiri cuisine uses mainly 2 spices in almost every dish which are key to Gustaba, the recipe of which I am going to share. Saunf and Ginger powder (Saunth). This recipe has meatballs which I had never made before. The way Gustaba tastes, you will feel all wonderful and amazing flavors in your mouth.

Mutton Chaap Masala

Mutton Chaap Masala Recipe

I have been sharing mostly Chicken recipes but if you ask me, I am a mutton person. I love mutton which was not always from start but I developed strong liking for it as I grew older, I am not that old mind you!!! ;-)

My father used to makes delicious curry and I would accompany him to meat shop and that's how I learnt how to choose mutton cuts. Yes, knowing what cuts you want is so important when you are buying any form of meat.

So, I especially like mutton chaap because it has bone and bone in any mutton dish is what gives you flavors.

So, I made this whole dish with only chaaps calls Mutton Chaap Masala.

Chicken Malai Tikka - Recipe

Chicken Malai Tikka Recipe


As you walk bye the lanes of Old Delhi, the smokey fragrance and aroma in the air of tikkas and kebabs will pull you so strongly that you will not leave without having a bite. That's actually true today in almost every part of Delhi with those vendors serving hot smokey Chiken Malai Tikka or Chicken Tikka.

When winters set in, I took our my barbeque, set the coal on fire and started sipping my scotch while I was smoking and charring those Chicken Malai Tikkas. I did it 4 consecutive weekends treating family and friends and it was so good to see them coming up to the barbeque and eating them piping hot. They just could not wait for it to be served. This thing comes out so juicy and succulent and the smokey flavor will take your breath away. Even the process will have your drooling as those juices will fall on hot coal and that sweet sizzling sound will enchant you.

Though this Chicken Malai Tikka recipe requires specialy equipment like a barbeque like Weber and seekhs. But you can have one locally made by local lohars. The seekhs that I used, I got them from a local lohar and it made my work so easy. However, the actual recipe is super easy. If you wanna know how to actually burn coal, take a look at this video on How to Burn coal in charcoal

Alternatively, you can also cook it in oven if you don''t have BBQ. Though, you will never have that smokey flavor.

Keema Stuffed Chicken Breast

When I started experimenting with chicken and western cuisine, one of the first things I tried was stuffing chicken with variety of stuffings. And the first one I tried was using Keema (mince) as the stuffing. It was not only a totally different thing for the punjabi family, but it was also cherished and loved. This Keema Stuffed Chicken Breast had the unique combination of different textures of chicken and it had my family and kids drooling over it. Now it's hard to please kids, isn't it?

If you are looking for something new and unique, read on:
