Green peas and Onion Samosa

Samosa is one of the most famous and delicious snacks in India. I guess there is no Indian who would refuse to have a Samosa. It is basically a fried flaky pastry with a savory filling such as potato, onions, peas, cheese, etc fragrant with plenty of spices like coriander powder, cumin seeds, etc. It is triangular in shape and usually served hot with mint chutney or Ketchup.

This recipe calls out for a cumin-studded whole wheat flour dough which is healthier than APF and a filling made out of spicy green peas and onions...which gives a unique twist to the traditional samosas that usually uses potato as the base for the filling.

These are a tasty treat and a go-to appetizer for any parties...loved from kids to elders. It can also be served with evening tea or coffee. They are absolutely tasty and easy to make. Let's dig into the recipe.

For the dough:
Whole wheat flour 1 cup
Cumin seeds 1 tsp
Ghee 1 tbsp
Salt to taste
Water to knead

For the filling
Cooking oil 1 1/2 tbsp
Mustard seeds 1 tsp
Cumin seeds/Jeera 1 tsp
Asafoetida a pinch
Turmeric powder 1tsp
Chopped onion 1
Green peas 1 cup
Chat Masala 1 tsp
Red chili powder 1 tsp
Garam masala powder 1tsp
Coriander powder 2 tsp
Salt and Sugar to taste
Lemon juice 1 tsp

For Frying:
Cooking Oil 

For applying 

1. Firstly let's make the dough, add all the ingredients mentioned 'for the dough ' in a bowl, and make a soft but firm dough. Keep it aside covered under a damp cloth.

2 . Next, let's make the filling. In a Kadai or Pan, Heat oil, add mustard seeds, cumin seeds, and let them crackle, add Asafoetida, turmeric powder, chopped onion and saute for 2 to 3 minutes till they are translucent.

3. Now add green peas, and mix well. Add chaat masala, red chili powder, garam masala, Coriander powder, and stir well. Also, add salt and sugar as per taste. Close lid and cook for 2 to 3 minutes. Off the flame, Add lemon juice, stir well and keep it aside to cool down so it is easier to stuff.

4. Let's make the Samosa cases to fill the stuffing. Divide the dough into small balls and roll them into thin circles. Cut each rolled out circle into two halves by running a knife in the center. So you get 2 semi-circles. Take one semicircle, shape them into cones, and with a spoon fill them with Onion peas mixture.

5. Now dab some water on one side of the cone, press the two edges together and seal. Continue with all other dough circles.

6. Place them on a plate and cover with a moist cloth.

7. Heat the oil in a deep Kadai or pan for frying on medium heat. Deep fry the prepared samosas in hot oil till they are golden brown. Fry them in batches of 2 to 3 and don't overcrowd.

8. Remove them from the Kadai using a slotted spoon and drain them on a kitchen paper. Serve them hot with green chutney or ketchup.

Eggless Brazilian Cheese Bread

Pao de Queijo (pronounced as pown -deh- kay-zho) aka Brazilian Cheese Bread is a small baked cheese bun, a popular snack and breakfast food that originated in the state Minas Gerais of Brazil. These are bread/buns usually made with tapioca flour, milk, oil, cheese, salt, and egg/egg substitute. Since I don't use eggs in my baking I have used vinegar instead. These are soft, chewy and so addictive. I love to make healthy bakes from all around the world. Inspired by this YouTube video by Something Dave and I gave it a try as it was an eggless version.These came out so well. These are super simple and easy to make with just five ingredients. A must try because they are gluten-free, contain no yeast, no baking powder, yet so soft and cheesy😋 I had never tried baking with tapioca flour...and found it so interesting to bake with. The dough is too sticky and you will need some extra flour to be dusted to make balls out of it. I have used plant-based pa

Huli pudi (Sambar Powder) North Karnataka style

Huli Pudi is one of the authentic traditional Sambar powders which has been passed on from generation to generation. This is specially made in North Karnataka. There is a wide variety of sambar powders not only within Karnataka but within South India. Each region has it's own way of adding ingredients and making them. In North Karnataka brahmin families, you can usually see two types of Sambars, firstly 'Saaru ' which can also be called Rasam with Toor dal. The consistency is thin and usually made with Tur dal and tomatoes or Tamarind. The other one is 'Huli' which is thicker in consistency and usually includes some veggies or greens. So here I am sharing the Sambar powder that is used to make a typical Huli. This is so unique and different from South Karnataka Sambar powders. The main difference being the omission of urad dal and Tur dal. This powder is just made with dried spices. This can be made in advance in large quantities/batches and stored in a
