Chicken Chalna Recipe | Hotel Style Chicken Chalna Recipe | Chicken Chalna For Parotta

Chicken Chalna Recipe
I thought, after sharing my pain with my friends and readers, I will feel bit better but it didn't helped me. I only felt so down and weak, not able to do any thing. Past two days went simply sitting and crying, today somehow pushed myself and started writing this post. Coming to the recipe, Chicken Chalna or Chicken Salna is a spicy south Indian Style Chicken Gravy that is served with Parotta or Idli /Dosa or even with Biryani. This Chicken Chalna recipe is my Mom's recipe and she got this recipe from a Parotta Master who lived as our neighbor in my Home Town. He just gave the hint of the recipe and she recreated it perfectly. This Chalna is tend to be darker in color which we couldn't with natural spices. I think they may use some artificial color to get that deep greenish brown colored gravy. Other wise the taste was similar to the hotel chalna. Instead of Chicken, You can even use vegetables to make vegetable chalna. Now off to the recipe...

Indo-Chinese Veg Fried Rice Recipe | Vegetable Fried Rice Recipe | Restaurant Style Veg Fried Rice(Indo-Chinese Style)

Veg Fried Rice Recipe
Amma/Mom, the word itself gives so much happiness, energy and hope to life. No one and nothing can compensate a Mom and her unconditional love and care. I lost my MOM  on May 20th 2016 due to sudden cardiac arrest at the age of just 50. I never thought that I will not meet her forever.
It is one month now but I am in that same state of shock, pain, fear and loss. I have no good reason to console myself and stay strong. She is not that much old or not sick person. On May 19th night 9.45 pm India Time, I spoke to her and she was normal happy and excited because of her daughter( My sis) and grand daughter's arrival. It was only a 13 minutes conversation, usually our call will not end before 2 hours but that day I wasn't feeling well  with severe dizziness and headache that i couldn't lift my head. So she felt sad for me and told me to take rest and said, that she will call me in the morning to check how I am doing.

Baked Chicken Patty Burger
Tandoori chicken burger recipe with step by step photo. I came across this recipe from a Facebook Page food recipe video. I slightly tweaked the recipe and also instead of shallow frying i baked the chicken patties. I made this Tandoori Chicken Patty Burger last Sunday for our lunch along with baked potato Tots. Baking method is not only healthy but also it gives perfectly tender and juicy chicken. I skipped Egg and Used only breadcrumbs to coat chicken that resulted in crispy crust.
I prepared Mint Flavored Yogurt Dip as spread for Chicken Burger. The patties tasted yum with that dip. Try this Indian Style Baked Chicken Patty Burger for a change from your usual chicken recipes and am sure kids will love it. These patties can be made ahead and also it freeze well.

Aloo Tikki Recipe
Shallow fried aloo tikki
My kids wanted to have some snack after coming from school and daily the lil' one gives idea for the snack. Some days he ask for some simple snack like Rice Flour Puttu, Kara Pori and deep fried delights like Onion Pakora, Dal Vada. Most of the days I make something for their after school snack and some days I plan to make something that I haven't shared here so that I can feed both my kids and my blog :) I made this aloo tikki last week for their snack and also clicked some pictures to share here. I often make aloo tikkis or patties either for snack or for lunch as Aloo tikki Roti Roll which was my kids' favorite lunchbox recipe. I have shared the recipe in my Instagram Page.
You can make this tikkis in large portion and freeze it for later. Whenever required just thaw and toast it in tawa and serve as a snack or as sandwich or with roti roll. Either way these aloo tikkis tastes great with chaat chutneys.

When ever I don't have veggies at home I prefer to cook Egg recipes like Egg curry, Poached Egg Kuzhambu or this Muttai Masala. There are some simple dishes that I make way often but never shared it here, some quick sabzis, onion tomato masala, muttai masala, Indian Style Beans Soup, Simple Salads, Masala Pasta, Tomato Pasta and more day-to-day recipes I wanted to share here but didn't get chance to click pictures OR I have to cook it specially to take pictures like this Muttai Masala.
One fine day I was completely bored and free and thought to cook and take pictures to feed my blog. But no proper veggies or cooked beans in hand, then immediately this Muttai Masala came to mind and without any second thought prepared and clicked some pictures :) Onion Egg Masala is a quick and simple side dish prepared using boiled eggs and more onions. This muttai masala pairs well with plain rice and with rotis too.

Bread Omelette Recipe | Omelette Sandwich Recipe | Easy Indian Breakfast Sandwich Recipe | Quick Sandwich With Omelette & Chaat Chutney

Bread Omelette Recipe
I often make Omelette for kids & V's breakfast and if I have bread at home either Homemade Sandwich bread or Deli's Fresh Bread then it will be Bread Omelette or Savory French Toast for Breakfast. This is very quick and easy to make breakfast recipe that involves only very few ingredients but feel free to use more or less desired vegetables for omelette and also add a slice of
cheese for your sandwich. But we love this simple way with a touch of  Chaat Green Chutney as spread. Green chutney pairs well with omelette sandwich and gives unique taste and flavor to the simple dish.  I am sharing two recipe with same ingredients, Bread Omelette and Omelette Sandwich. For both recipes the ingredients are same and only the final step differs and so the serving way. So two recipes in one post. Here you go.,
