Pizza- Quick to make!

Pizza is ready!

Pizza is ready!

 

Let me start by wishing everyone a very Happy Independence Day! I had a very nice time attending the Flag Hoisting ceremony at my son’s school. It is amazing to see these young kids render the National Song so melodiously and remember our freedom fighters. Love you guys!

Now over to the Pizza….back in the times, Mom used to make Pizzas for me and Bro, she still does….:-) and those pizzas were our special treat. We’d be so excited about a ‘Pizza Party’. She’d make the sauce at home and the pizza base too. I am not half as good as her…so  I get the base from the super market and well sauce…..and well with a lot of cheese and some seasoning, sauce is optional.

We make the pizza in a very simple way, it comes out so delicious, try it and you’d go for it again and again!

Ingredients & Method

Pizza Base (Thin Crust)

Onion, Capsicums, Tomatoes – finely chopped. Mix these in a bowl and add salt as per taste.

Garlic finely chopped (optional) add to the above mixture.

Pizza Seasoning- Oregano

Mozzarella or Processed Cheese

Ghee (Clarified Butter)- 1-2 tsp per pizza

Spread some ghee on the pizza base. Now spread the mixed vegetables evenly over this. Grate the cheese generously 🙂

Heat the oven to 225 C and place the pizzas for twenty minutes. Done!

Tips:

You can have additional topping of your choice- you can zucchini, chicken tikka, chicken sausages, paneer cubes (cottage cheese)  or pepperoni.

If you don’t have pizza base at home, you can also use Bread- Brown Bread or any other bread of your choice….comes out equally delicious.

And the most important thing- the man in your house can make this simple pizza himself, ask him to do it for you, in my case, I don’t have to ask, my man makes them perfect!

Bhutte Ki Kachori

So..this will be my first post from my new home….all settled in our new home- and the icing was a month (well…almost) long vacation, with family 🙂 Can anything get close to this? Well rains and bhutte ki kachori can! Past few days have been super awesome and refreshing- It has been raining heavily here in Hyderabad…aah monsoons! How I love rains, it is fun and beautiful and what if you were served hot bhutte ki kachori with Dhania Chutney? Perfect!

Here it goes- I hope you guys try and like it!

Ingredients for Bhutte ki Kachori (Makes 10-12 Kachoris)

6 cobs (farm fresh bhutta) corn- should be soft (I never use sweet corn- we always prefer fresh corn)

Salt as per taste

Red Chili as per taste

2 tsp Cumin seeds (Jeera)

2-3 tsp coriander seeds (saboot dhania) – semi crushed

1 tsp turmeric powder (haldi)

Oil for for frying.

2.5 cups All purpose flour (maida)

Water For the dough

Method:

For the filling-

Grate the cobs. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a pan.  Add cumin seeds (jeera) & crushed coriander seeds and once they crackle add grated corn cobs.

Keep stirring for few minutes (approximately 7-10 minutes) continuously.

Add salt, red chili powder, turmeric powder and stir.

Take it off the flame and keep aside to cool.

Mix maida, 1 teaspoon salt (or as per taste-just for the dough) and 2 tablespoon oil to form stiff dough. Beat the dough on the kitchen platform to make it stretchable and smoother.

Preparation-

Take a small piece of dough, press and flatten it on the palms, put a little bhutta mixture (gathered into a ball) and wrap it back carefully into a ball of maida. Packing back is similar to doing a stuffed Paratha, just that this is smaller and you have to be more dexterous with your hands. Take extra care to leave no open ends while wrapping it back

Flatten it again.

Deep fry in oil at a low flame till crisp and golden.  Take a wooden spatula to move around the kachoris when frying them.

Serve it with Dhania (coriander) chutney and enjoy! 🙂
