After a long time I baked bread,  English Muffin Bread...this is one of the easiest bread I have baked ever. This English Muffin bread doesn't require kneading, stretching or shaping the dough.

The final product was soft and yummy bread, this bread has nice texture perfect for toast, both sweet & savory toast. Also, No oil or butter required except to grease the pan. Cool isn't?!

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 | Indian Style Potato Patties Recipe | Aloo Tikki - Easy Snack Recipe

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.

Muttai Masala Recipe | Onion Muttai Masala | Egg Masala Recipe

Muttai Masala Recipe
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.,

Ginger Cardamom Tea Recipe | How To Make Ginger Cardamom Tea | Inji Yelakai Tea Recipe

Ginger Cardamom Tea Recipe
Today's recipe is a Kitchen Basics / How To's, Ginger Cardamom Tea Recipe with step by step photos. V and myself don't have the habit of drinking tea/coffee regularly but once in a while I make Tea and it is only Ginger Cardamom Tea. Or whenever we are sick or during winter evenings I prefer to drink hot and flavorful Ginger Cardamom Tea. Ginger and Cardamom has tons of medicinal and soothing properties. If you are feeling sick and down, just a small cup of hot Ginger Cardamom tea is enough to refresh and makes you feel good and warm. Making Good tea or coffee is really a challenging task to me, it comes only by practice.

Parotta Recipe | Parotta - Step By Step Recipe | South Indian Layered Bread - Hotel Style Parotta Recipe

Parotta Recipe
Parotta is a soft, flaky layered South Indian flat bread that is popular in Tamil Nadu & Kerala. Parotta is often served with Salna both Vegetarian and Non-Veg Salna. This is similar to the North Indian Lachha Paratha that is prepared using Wheat flour whereas the parotta are made using maida/APF. Many think that this parotta requires lots of oil to get the soft and flakiness and also requires too much labor like kneading, beating and shaping the dough but it is not true. You can make this Parotta with less oil and minimal work. Only thing it requires is "TIME". Yes.,it need couple of hours to be done without much oil and stress. The more you rest the dough more the softness and flakiness. The rested dough stretch by itself without use of much oil. I used only 2-3 tbsp oil for all the 4 parottas.
