Banana Sweet Pidi Kozhukattai

3

Kozhukkatai is a traditional south Indian delicacy prepared in both sweet and savory versions. There was a stage when my son started preferring foods which he can hold and eat. Paniyaram was my instant saver on many days. One day I prepared Savory pidi Kozhukattai for us and he liked.

Knowing the fact he loves sweets and  to include banana into his diet, generally I prepare sweet pidi Kozhukattai with jaggery and banana.

Check out my other Kozhukattai recipes,

Potato Smiley – Guest post from Mullai

Potato Smiley

Snack mania continues and today we have Mullai from SpiceIndiaOnline. Mullai and I become friends recently but in a short span of time, we have become close to each other. Though I am a Amateur blogger when compared with her blogging experience, she never treats me so. She is friendly and kind, shares her blogging techniques and things which worked for her.  My India trip is fast approaching and time to prepare something for my hubby and freeze it when was thinking what to do, Mullai gave me a lot of interesting ideas. I have to check her blog for more recipes. During our calls one day I told about Guest post and she squeezed sometime between her busy schedule and gave this yummy snacks. Can someone say no to this beautiful crispy snacks??

Over to Mullai,

Writing a guest post is all new to me… one fine morning Vidya casually pinged to chat and from then on we became good friends. That  fun chat still continues with never ending conversations until duty calls. Vidya Srinivasan,  who i’ve  known for a few months now is a very dedicated food blogger..runs this beautiful, very impressive  blog called “traditionallymodernfood” with wonderful collection of both traditional & modern recipes.  She mostly shares  simple recipes with easy instructions and keeps it interesting & neat. She is one sweet person with humble attitude and when she asked me to write a guest post on toddler friendly food I couldn’t say no.

https://plus.google.com/u/0/b/104988302656588183755/+SpiceindiaonlineRecipes/posts

While googling  for a good one, I ran into YummytummyArthi’s space which had this fun recipe called Potato smiley faces which caught my eyes, which made me feel like a kid in the candy store! Well this recipe is inspired from that with few alterations to suit my taste. Though not that healthy, it will for sure impress your kids and I can assure that it will definitely bring a smile on their face. Try it out!

Ingredients:

Medium size Potatoes    3

Corn flour    5- 6 tablespoons

Salt  3/4 teaspoon

Black pepper  1/2 teaspoon

Oil    2 cups (for deep frying)

Method:

  • Boil potatoes and keep aside. Let them cool completely. Finely grate them or mash like how you would do for mashed potatoes
  • This mixture will be very sticky, add salt, black pepper powder and just half of the corn flour and make a stiff dough. Add more corn flour until the dough looks firm.

  • Cover and refrigerate for atleast an hour.  By now the potato dough would have turn stiff.Dust corn flour on a board and roll out the dough flat for about 1/4 inch thickness.

  • Using a cookie cutter cut them out into small circular discs. Using big hole straw punch the discs as shown for the eyes. Then using a spoon press to shape the mouth.

  • Heat oil and deep fry the smileys… they just dance around in the hot oil, bubbles of oil oozing out from their eyes and mouth will look as if they are talking to you. Once they turn golden brown on both sides, remove and drain excess oil by placing them on a paper towel. Serve hot with ketchup!

potato smiley1

  • This recipe will yield about 15 smileys, make them ahead of time, dust with corn flour and refrigerate. Make it in the morning and refrigerate and fry when the kids long for an evening snack. Oh…there’s already a naughty one licking up the ketchup!

Baked Quinoa Croquettes – Guest Post from Anupama

baked quinoa croquettes

Its guest post day, and today we have Anupama from Easy bites Online. Social media is playing a great role in finding new people, I happened to see Anupama’s post in a FB group and started visiting her space. I am a big fan of her healthy recipes. I  apporached her to do a guest post for Toddler friendly recipes, she instantly agreed and here is her healthy snacks.

Anupama says,

Quinoa, although less known, this super grain is making a definite way into our lives, rightly so if you ask me. Packed with all the eight essential amino acids (and thereby a complete protein), fiber, magnesium, phosphorous and iron, quinoa has made its way for sure into my kitchen.

Nearly every meal of ours entails either rice or wheat, our habitual grains. I am aware that to bring in quinoa can be tricky especially with picky toddlers!

When Vidya Srinivasan, from Traditionally Modern Food, asked me for a toddler-friendly guest post on her blog, I could not refuse; not because I find it hard to say ‘No’ to anyone, but because being such a professional, enthusiastic blogger, lovely and a thoughtful person that she is, I simply could not bring myself to say no. I feel this has opened up another channel to know Vidya and her wonderful blog better. Do visit her blog for numerous delicious, healthy recipes.

I decided this would be another opportunity to bring in quinoa and make it toddler-friendly!

An eye-catching finger food presented to hungry kids after school is sure to entice them to dig in. As anticipated, the array of Baked Quinoa Croquettes sitting at the table with some ketchup, drew my kids to it. They simply grabbed one each, dug into the dip and ‘puff’ it was gone.

These are baked, however, can be deep-fried too.

Ingredients:

cooked quinoa – 1/2 cup

finely chopped onion – 1/2 cup

finely chopped green bell pepper – 1/4 cup

garlic – 1 clove chopped fine

ginger – 1 tsp grated fine

fresh mint leaves – 6-8 roughly chopped

fresh coriander chopped fine – 2 tbsp

raisins, roughly chopped cashews – couple of tbsp as stuffing (optional)

salt and pepper to taste

lemon juice – 2 tsp (or to taste)

corn slurry prepared using a tbsp of corn flour mixed in 1 tbsp of water

bread crumbs prepared using brown bread powdered in a blender

olive oil – few tsp to drizzle over and to grease the tray

Method:

– First cook quinoa as per the instructions on the pack.

– Add this 1/2 cup of cooked quinoa to a bowl, add the rest of the ingredients.

add quinoa, potato, paneer, onion, ginger, garlic, salt and pepper to a bowl (1)

– Mix everything well. it should come together nicely like a dough.

– Now take small portions of the mixture of the size of a golf ball.

– Flatten it over your palm using your fingers.

– Place a couple of raisins and cashew pieces (if preferred). cover this up by bringing together the mixture all around and over the stuffing. make a ball shaped croquette.

flatten a portion of the mixture. place a couple of raisind. cover them over to make a ball.

– Now, dip this in cornflour slurry, then roll over bread crumbs to cover all over. Pat gently all over to allow bread crumbs to stick well.

roll the prepared balls in corn flour slurryroll over bread crumbs to cover all over

– Place this on a plate or tray. Repeat the same with the rest of the mixture.

place the prepared balls over lined greased baking tray, bake at 190 deg C until golden

– Pre-heat the oven to 190 deg C.

– Allow these balls to sit for 10-15 min. this will allow the corn flour to harden a bit. This will ensure that the balls do not open up when deep-fried. It retains its shape well too when baked.

-Now drizzle over or brush gently some olive oil over each of the balls.

-Place them on a lined, greased baking tray.

-Bake them for 22-25 min or until nicely browned up.

-Serve with ketchup.

Notes:

Since this is meant for kids, green chili has not been used. but if tolerated, can be used.

If preferred, the cornflour slurry can also be seasoned with salt and pepper powder.

The finer you chop the vegetables, the easier it will be to prepare balls.

Stuffing with raisins, nuts is optional. if stuffing is not preferred, make smaller balls.

Keep an eye on the bake.

Allow it to cool slightly before you attempt to remove from the tray. Use a flat plastic ladle to gently dislodge it from the tray.

Karadaiyan Nombu Adai (Sweet and Savory)

IMG_5281Last Saturday was Karadaiyan Nombu for us (Sunday in India). Karadaiyan Nombu is a traditional festival celebrated in our community. Ever since childhood I have a big fascination when it comes to nombu because of the yellow thread.  I always ask my Mom I not married why are you tying this over my neck, my mom used to say this is a different thread. Even in school I hide this thread as I don’t want my friends to think I got married:-)

Specialty of nombu is preparing Sweet and savory Adai and tying yellow thread. Myself and sis enjoy Adai with a big chunk of room temperature butter. I can talk about how I enjoyed for the entire post, but let me get into the recipe:-)

Typically Amma soaks the rice and dries in a cloth and pulse it, but I have preapered Adai with store bought rice flour

General steps:

  • Dry roast 2 cups of rice flour for 2-3 minutes and keep aside

IMG_5219

  • Dry roast the black karamani for 2-3 minutes and soak in warm water for 2 – 3 hours, strain it and add twice the water and pressure cook for 1 whistle. Avoid mushing the karamani

IMG_5223

Having a sweet tooth, I always prefer Sweet Adai over savory, and hence the post:-)

IMG_5284

Sweet Adai

Ingredients:

Rice flour – 1 cup, sieved

Grated Coconut (Fresh/Frozen) – 1/4 cup

Jaggery –  1 cup

Karamani – 3 tbsp

Warm Water – 1 cup + 3/4 cup (keep 1/4 cup warm water separately)

Cardamom powder -1/4 tsp

Salt – a pinch

Sesame oil – to grease

Method:

  • Soak jaggery in 1 cup + 3/4 cup of hot water. Since I had big chunks of jaggery it took a while, but to speed up the procees, jaggery can be cut into small pieces or cooked with water

IMG_5221

  • After the  jaggery completely melts in water, strain the impurities.
  • In a pan, add jaggery syrup and bring to boil. Add the coconut, black eyed beans and cardamom powder; mix well. Add the rice flour

karadayannombu2

  • Cook till it comes to non sticky dough consistency. Cover the dough with a damp cloth, as it tends to dry soon

karadayannombu3

  • When the dough is cool enough to handle, make small spheres, flatten it and gently make a small dent in center. Since rice flour is gluten free, they tend to be sticky, so greasing hand with sesame oil helps to make Adai

IMG_5247

  • Steam it in a greased idli plate for 10-12 mins.

IMG_5272

My Notes:

  • If the dough becomes dry add extra water. For the flour that I used, the extra 1/4 cup water was not needed. If you feel dough is dry, add 1 tbsp of water else no need to add. Water added should be boiling hot water, so its better to keep 1/4 cup hot water separately
  • Color of the Adai depends on the jaggery color

Savory Adai

Ingredients:

Rice flour – 1 cup, sieved

Grated Coconut (Fresh/frozen) – 1/4 cup

Karamani – 3 tbsp

Salt  – as needed

Water – 2 cups ( keep 1/4 cup warm water separately)

Sesame oil – to grease

For tempering

Coconut oil – 1 tsp

Mustard Seeds – 1/4 tsp

Green Chilli – 1, chopped (Adjust according to your taste)

Channa Dal – 1/2 tsp

Ginger -1 tsp, peeled and finely chopped

Curry leaves – 1 sprig, chopped

Asafoetida – a generous pinch

Method:

  • Add oil to the pan. Once the oil is hot, temper with mustard seeds, channa dal, ginger, green chilli, curry leaves and asafoetida. After it splutters, add 2 cups of water and salt. Bring to boil. Once the water starts boiling add coconut, karamani and rice flour

karadayannombu

  • Cook till it comes to non sticky dough consistency. Cover the dough with a damp cloth, as it tends to dry soon
  • When it is warm make small balls and flatten it into patties and make small holes in the middle as we do for pinwheels.

  • When the dough is cool enough to handle, make small spheres, flatten it and gently make a small dent in center. Since rice flour is gluten free, they tend to be sticky, so greasing hand with sesame oil helps to make Adai

IMG_5244

  • Steam it in greased idli plate for 10-12 mins.

My Notes:

  • In the dough becomes dry add extra water.For the flour that I used, the extra 1/4 cup water was not needed. If you feel dough is dry, add 1 tbsp of water else no need to add. Water added should be boiling hot water, so its better to keep 1/4 cup hot water separately

Baked Corn Tortilla Chips

1

This weekend it was freezing cold here, couldn’t go out anywhere. For the chill temperature felt like having some crispy snack. When I was thinking what to do, many recipes came to my mind like Baked Pakoda, baked bonda, baked bread roll, baked bread Tikki but all those recipes demanded some work, lazy me was thinking of some quick snack without much work. Hubby suggested Microwave potato chips but I was out of potatoes, immediately Corn tortilla  in kitchen pulled my attention. Got them for Quesadilla, had some 9 tortilla left, so decided to do tortilla chip. These chips is great way to finish your leftover tortilla

IMG_3332

  • Bake for 14 – 18 mins, turning them in between (after 7/8 minutes) or until chips are starting to get crispy and slightly golden brown at the edges (check every 1-2 minutes after 14 mins)

  • Can add spices of your choice like chilli powder, cumin powder,coriander powder, chat masala, onion powder, garlic powder , cayenne pepper, paprika, etc
  • Can add grated cheese like mozerralla cheese, parmesan cheese, cheddar cheese, pepper jack cheese on the top of tortilla

Baked Healthy Mixture

IMG_0041

Mixture is my sister’s favorite snack. My sis had a peculiar habit of eating mixture when she was young, She would soak the mixture in water and eat it. Till today I couldn’t figure out the reason;-) As a teatime snack or a side for rice, Mixture is a winner. I couldn’t get the Indian Mixture here, so I started to eat Hunter mix and loved it. I tell myself its kettle roasted, so guilt free snack;-) wanted to avoid eating that and make a healthy homemade alternative. Traditional mixture recipe is bit lengthy, though it tastes yummy. A lazy cook like me wanted to make it quick and simple. I frequently do Puffed Rice Mixtute for teatime snack. Baking fever (that’s how hubby calls my addiction to baking) told me to try mixture with puffed and flattened rice, and with nuts. I have baked Honey Glazed Almonds, but had second thoughts to bake flattened rice. I saw my friend Chitra’s oats poha granola post and confidently tried mixture, and it was a big hit at home. This is a simple and easy mixture. Need to try my luck with some more ingredients next time.

Baked Healthy Mixture:

Preparation Time : 5 mins | Cooking Time : 15 – 20 mins

Recipe Category: Snack

Ingredients:

Puffed Rice / Pori – 1 cup

Thin Flattened Rice/  Poha (White/ Red) – 1 cup (I used white)

Walnuts – 3 tbsp ( cut into big pieces)

Peanuts – 4 tbsp

Almonds – 3 tbsp

Sunflower seeds – 4 tbsp

Turmeric powder – 1/4 tsp

Coriander powder – 1/4 tsp

Chilli Powder – 1/4 tsp (Adjust according to your spice level)

Asafoetida/Hing – a generous pinch

Oil – 1/2 tsp

Salt – as needed

Cooking Spray/ Oil – to grease (I used cooking spray)

IMG_0040

Method

  • Pre-heat the oven to 150 degree Fahrenhait. Line the baking tray with aliminium foil (or any Baking paper) and grease with cooking spray
  • Combine puffed and flattened rice along with nuts and mix well

IMG_0032

  • Add the spice powder (Turmeric, Chilli etc.) and oil to the mixture. Combine everything well

IMG_0034

  • Spread the mixture on a foil and bake in the preheated oven for 15 – 20 mins

IMG_0037

  • Check for the seasoning and add if required. Store in a Airtight container to maintain the freshness

IMG_0045

IMG_0043

My Notes:

  • Can add Fried gram, cashew nut, curry leaves, raisin or any other Nuts of your choice
  • Instead of baking, you can also deep fry flattened rice, and shallow fry puffed rice and nuts. Combine everything together
  • My oven took around 17 minutes but watch out after 15 minutes
  • Can also use thick poha but it takes extra cooking time
  • Can also microwave poha for 2 minutes instead deep frying

Baked Thattai

IMG_9670

Thattai is one of my favorite snacks. When my mother in law came to visit us, she used to prepare thattai and put them in big box. We snack them all day. On krishna jayanthi, i wanted to do some thattai. Generally they are deep fried in oil.  After seeing Baked Seedai result, I was confident enough to try my luck with baked healthy thattai. Thattai and seedai are almost similar – for thattai, chilli powder is the additional ingredient. Crispy and yummy thattai without much oil was ready. After Krishna jayanthi, I posted this pic in my FB page. Somehow it took me so such time to draft this post. Thanks to everyone who messaged me in FB for thattai recipe, and sorry for the delay in posting it.

Baked Thattai

Preparation time:  5mins  |  Cooking time: 25 – 30 mins

Recipe Category: Snacks

Ingredients:

Rice Flour- 1 cup

Urad Dal – 2 tbsp

Butter – 3tbsp

Red Chilli powder – 1 tsp heaped (Adjust according to your spice level)

Salt – as needed

Asafoetida – 1/8 tsp

Oil – to grease

IMG_9669

Method:

For urad dal Flour:

Take 1/4cup of whole urad Dal and dry roast till they are golden brown. When it comes to room temperature, grind them into fine powder

  • Preheat the oven to 350 F. Line a baking tray with parchment paper and grease the parchment paper with  oil
  • Dry roast the rice flour in low flame for 2/3 minutes. Do not overcook till they change color
  • In a wide vessel, add the rice flour and 2 tblsp of urad dal flour and salt. Sieve them for even mixing. Add asofetida and chilli powder to sieved flour and mix well

IMG_9339

  • Add water slowly and knead them into a pliable dough

IMG_9341

  • Grease your hands with coconut oil and make small balls (approximately 1 tsp dough). Flatten the balls on greased palm (2-3 inch in diameter) and carefully place on baking tray
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 12 – 15 minutes. Then flip over very carefully and bake for another 12-15 minutes

IMG_9674

My Notes:

  • Cumin seeds, sesame seeds, curry leaves and Chana Dal can be added
  • If you are frying, the thatti has to be fried in a medium low flame, as it will help for even cooking. Heat oil in a pan, When the oil becomes hot gently put the thattai to the oil. Cook till the hissing sound of oil subsides.
  • I used the store-bought rice flour. Alternatively you can wash and soak the raw rice for 1/2 hours and dry them in a cloth till moisture completely dries, and grind them into fine powder

Baked Onion Pakoda

IMG_8909 Two weeks back it was raining, and both hubby and I felt like having some pakoda. But the calorie factor alarmed us. Hubby suggested trying some baked pakoda, like Baked besan Bonda.  As the consistency of batter differs for both, I googled for some tips, and saw Shruti’s baked pakoda recipe. Her pakodas attracted me a lot, and I tried them with few changes

Ingredients

Besan/Chickpea flour/Garbanzo flour/Gram flour – 1/2 cup

Onion – 1 thinly sliced

Semolina/ Rice Flour – 2 tbsp 

Red Chilli Powder – 1/4 tsp

Baking Soda -1/4 tsp heaped

Hing – genorus pinch

Carom Seeds –  1/8 tsp

Oil – 2 tsp (I used olive oil)

Cookong Spray/oil – to grease ( I used Pam Olive Oil spray)

Salt – as needed

IMG_8914 Method:

  • Preheat the oven to 400 degree Fahrenhait
  • In a bowl add all the listed ingredients and mix well. Sprinkle about 1 tbsp of water
  • Add aluminum foil to the baking tray and grease with cooking spray
  • Take small portion and place it in such a way they don’t overlap

IMG_8880

  • Bake them for about 20  minutes turning sides in between or until they are crisp and golden brown

IMG_8900

My Notes

  • Instead of 1/4 tsp of baking soda, 3/4 tsp of baking powder can be used
  • I let the onions turn brown, as we like crispy onions. You can take it out a little early as well

Baked Bread Rolls

IMG_8247

In our home both hubby and I like to have Snacks with tea. Though I like deep fried snacks, the calories in them causes some worry! Had half loaf of bread, so thought of trying something with that. I generally bake bread whenever I use them in vegetable biryani, bread upma and other dishes. This time I wanted to keep some stuffing and bake it. Crispy snack is ready, with minimal oil.

Baked Bread Rolls

Turmeric powder – a pinch

Fennel(Sombu) powder – a pinch

Ginger garlic paste – 1/2 tsp

Red chilli powder – 1/8 tsp

  • Add 1 tsp of oil to a pan. Add ginger garlic paste and sauté for 30 seconds. Add onions and saute till onions are cooked. Add garam masala, red chilli powder, fennel seed powder, turmeric powder and allow it to cook for a minute. Add mashed potato and peas, and cook covered for 2-3 mins. Switch off and keep the stuffing aside

IMG_8237

  • Trim the edges of the bread and roll them as thin as you can with a chapathi roller. Add approx 1 tbsp of stuffing in the middle, and seal the edges with little water

IMG_8225 IMG_8228

  • Take a baking tray and put parchment paper on top. Use some cooking spray on the paper, and brush little oil on  both sides of bread rolls. Bake for 8-10 mins. Turn over and cook for another 8-10 minutes, till the rolls turn golden brown. Serve it with ketchup/ranch

IMG_8243

My Notes:

  • The timing differs from oven to oven, so keep an eye after 8 minutes
  • You can add ghee to make them rich
  • Any vegetable of your choice can be added in the stuffing
  • Can grill them instead of baking
