Mango Panna Cotta
Mango mango everywhere and I love to eat them all! :) I love mangoes and cant just stop eating them. They dont get boring because of the vast varieties of mangoes available in the market :) Little sour, too sweet, subtle sweet, juicy etc. Though I like to eat it just as it is, the amount of mangoes at home demands me to make something with it to pep it up :)Panna cotta is an Italian dessert with means cooked cream. It is my favorite dessert and when I had mangoes in hand, I quickly came up with version :) Slurp :)Ingredients:Mango puree - 200 gms (1 large mango)Milk - 100 mlSugar - 60 gmsFresh Cream - 200 mlGelatin - 15 gmsMethod:Chop mango into large chunks and puree it in a mixie. Take milk, cream and sugar in a heavy bottomed vessel and heat on low flame until it boils. Meanwhile take the gelatin in a microwave safe bowl and add 50 gms of water to it and soak it in water for two mins and then microwave it for a minute for it to melt completely. Reserve 4 tblsp of mango puree in a bowl and also reserve 1 tblsp of melted gelatin in a separate bowl.Now add the mango puree to the cream mixture and mix well until it is well blent and smooth. Allow it to cool down a bit. Spoon the mango panna cotta into serving glasses or moulds. Set it in the fridge for 2 to 3 hours. After a couple of hours mix the reserved mango puree with the reserved gelatin and spoon it over the already set panna cotta to achieve the top mango glee. Set it again in the fridge for few hours and serve chill :)Spoon some chopped mango pieces and corn flakes for crunchiness before serving!Written by: NithyaSend in your queries by clicking here.
Broccoli Vada Pav
Vada pav is the asset of the North! Yup they are the best selling snack or chat any where in North India. I have enjoyed them during my visit to Pune and longing to have them sometime from Mumbai too :)Ever since my visit to Pune, I have been wanting to make some Vada pavs at home. Browsed loads of recipes but ended up making my own version of it with broccoli addition and guess what, it was a super duper hit too :) My cousins who visited me enjoyed it so much that they wanted the recipe too :P sometimes random cooking brings fame! :PIngredients:Pav buns - 10For the filling:Broccoli - 1 Potato - 3 largeGarlic - 5 podsGinger - 1/4 inch piecePepper powder - 1 tspJeera powder - 1 tspLemon juice - 1 tspSalt - for tasteFor the coating:Besan flour - 1/2 cupRice flour - 1/4 cupSalt - for tasteChilly powder - for tasteAsafoetida - a pinchFor Green chutney:Mint leaves - 1 cupCoriander leaves - 1 cupGreen chillies - 2Lemon juice - 1 tspGaram masala - 1/2 tspSalt - for tasteFor Red chutney:Coconut - 1/2 cupRed chilies - 2Garlic pods - 4Tamarind paste - 1 tspSalt - for tasteMethod:To make the filling:Boil potatoes, peel and mash thoroughly. Grate broccoli using a grater. Chop ginger and garlic into small pieces. Take two tsps of oil in a pan and fry the ginger garlic for few minutes. Add the grated broccoli and sprinkle few drops of water and cook in low flame for 5 minutes. Now add the cooked and smashed potato to it and saute. Finally add the salt, pepper powder, jeera powder and the lemon juice to it and mix well. Allow it to cool down and make small balls of the filling. To make the coating:Mix the besan flour, rice flour, chilly powder, asafoetida and salt together by adding adequate water to it to make a dropping consistency batter. Now take the above made broccoli potato balls and dip it in the batter and deep fry the vadas. I used a paniyaram skillet to fry the balls to avoid deep frying. Once it has browned on all sides, remove from oil and strain the excess oil on a tissue. To make the chutneys:Grind the coriander leaves, mint leaves, green chilly, lemon juice, garam masala and salt together by adding little water to it. Once it becomes a smooth paste collect it in a bowl. Green chutney is ready. Grind the coconut, red chilly, garlic, tamarind paste and salt together into a smooth paste to make red chutney. Now slit open the pav buns. Apply green chutney on one side and red chutney on the other side. Place one vada in the center and assemble the vada pav.Serve hot and enjoy the delicious vada pav :)Written by: NithyaSend in your queries by clicking here.
