Baked Potato Wedges with step by step recipe & images-Can be made on tawa too.
My son is finishing his first year at school and his institution is having a small party for kids.Parents were asked to send some simple party snacks and my friend Gouthami suggested this Baked Potato Wedges recipe from her blog last evening.She also suggested me to make the preparation works at night so that I can just bake /toast on a tawa today morning. I gave small tweaks to her recipe and made everything ready last night.I was so scared because I had failed twice before in baking gobi and potatoes but today baked potato wedges turned out to be a super hit.I am saving this recipe for all my further attempts.The colour , texture , taste ,flavour of baked potato wedges was so perfect and super yummy. And an additional good thing about this recipe is you make it by just shallow frying in a tawa too. Come let’s see the recipe while I keep waiting for my son to get back with his feedback.

Chapathi Noodles is usually made with leftover chappathis and mostly done with a Chinese tinge. When I got bored of the usual chapathi and felt so lazy to make a side dish for chapathi, this idea came into my mind.I didn’t want to add soya sauce because little one will also be having it.That was then this Masala Chapathi Noodles recipe was born.I made with fresh rotis only.You can use left over chapathi too.

Rasgulla-This is my most favorite sweet.Wondering how come a person who has avoided most whites in the pantry love Rasgulla!!Yeah-I used to just gobble up this Bengali sweet in no time.But it is a yearly twice kind of event. No harm right?Though I avoid whites in my pantry I don’t mind using once in a while or having them at a party or offering my kid during an outing.I tried making rasgullas at home some two years back and these recipe images have been lying on my hard disk since then. Accidentally a friend of mine wanted to know the recipe of spongy rasgulla,so posting it now. The images are of poor quality since they were clicked long back(before learning the techniques I use today).

Kesari-The most super quick sweet one can make which I have never made fearing that I wouldn’t be able to get the right consistency.Hubby and my paternal grand dad likes it so much.My paternal aunt would never come home without a bowl of this even if she visits us every week.Mom makes it in a jiffy and she had never failed.But to attempt this recipe I literally nagged her for a week ,pulled hubby inside kitchen and finally made it.Hopefully it is perfect.I was questioned by few friends that how I manage to cook without white ingredients daily.I try to replace with healthy alternatives.But I do include them once in 4 months or 6 months for dishes like kesari,milk halwa,gulab jamun etc.We don’t make these daily ,right?

Mirchi Bajji & a cold evening-This is an unbeatable combo.Hubby is huge fan of this molaga bajji but he doesn’t like much of gram flour.So we found an alternate with amaranth flour/mullai keerai maavu/rajgira flour.I really wanted to try my hands on this miracle flour with some innovative recipe.Usually people include them in making porridges/kheer/energy bars/soups/stews.I somehow wanted to use it very differently.So tried making biscuits and bajji. You will hardly find a difference and it was extremely delicious.Do try and let me know 🙂
And you know something ,this is my 300 th post 🙂 Not really great in 3 years but still I am all happy and excited about this journey.Thanks to each of you 🙂
