Batata Vada Recipe | How To Make Batata Vada | Easy Batata Vada Recipe

Batata Vada Recipe
Batata Vada is a spicy and delicious deep fried snack prepared using potato/aloo/batata. This recipe is almost similar to the south Indian Urulai kizhangu Bonda/Masal Bonda, expect the use of spices and potato filling preparation is different. Anything with potato is most welcomed at home and that too a deep fried snack is sure a hit. My kids enjoyed this snack. Batata vada can be prepared in no time, if you have some boiled potato in hand then you will need only 10-15 minutes to make this yummy snack.
I prepared this batata vada last week especially to share here, because I lost all my drafted food pictures due to hard disk issue. I usually, I write the recipe and save it in blogger and only on the day of posting I upload the pictures till that time it will be in my personal laptop. And Now, all the food pictures were lost due to my laptop issue and we couldn't retrieve any data from hard disk. So, I have to cook and click for my further posts. I will try to cook and share some easy recipes.

Cabbage Aloo Sabzi | Potato Cabbage Dry Curry | Aloo Cabbage Sabzi Recipe

Cabbage Aloo Sabzi
I like to make dry curry or sabzi with Cabbage for Phulka or sometimes to go with Dosa. Once my neighbor friend gave some rotis and sabzi for us when I was sick and under treatment. That sabzi which she gave was prepared using cabbage and potato combo which my kids loved it a lot. I was happy that my kids loved eating cabbage sabzi because of  some potatoes in it. So, why not to cook it my way for them and even we liked the combo.
This cabbage aloo sabzi or potato cabbage dry curry is a very simple and easy to make side dish for rotis/phulkas. It requires simple ingredients and less time to make this healthy and filling side dish. This sabzi is perfect for making wrap or roll for kids lunch box. You can also drizzle some green chutney or tomato ketchup or simply the sabzi alone for roti roll, my kids love to have wrap/roll kind of stuff for their lunch box.

Asparagus Pakora
Deep Fried Asparagus Or Asparagus Pakora/Bajji Recipe with Step by Step Photos. I have more recipes in my draft but in order to overcome my anxiety pangs I decided to cook or bake a recipe to blog at least once a week. And this week, I cooked this Asparagus Pakora/Deep Fried Asparagus. This is a simple and easy to make snack recipe.

We like to eat Oven Roasted Asparagus just like Roasted Broccoli. But, kids did not like the roasted asparagus and for them I made this Yummy and crispy Asparagus Pakora. These pakoras are vegan, gluten free with full of flavor and taste. To mask the slight bitterness of the stem, I added chaat Masala to the batter and it worked very well. My kids loved the pakoras to the core and enjoyed with sweet chilli sauce.

Cheese Paratha Recipe | Cheese Stuffed Paratha Recipe

Today's recipe is a kids friendly recipe - cheese paratha/cheese stuffed paratha. This is one of my kids' favorite paratha that I often make for their breakfast. These parathas tastes great when they are served hot or warm and is not suitable for lunch box as the cheese gets hard when cooled. If you want to pack for lunch box, add less cheese and more vegetables(onion, capsicum, carrot) so that the moisture from the vegetables gives softness and taste to the paratha even after cooling.

Cheese Paratha is nothing but a regular wheat stuffed paratha with cheese(i used Mozzarella ) and spices filling. I did not use much vegetables here as per my kids' preference, and also chopped the onion and capsicum finely..just only for flavor.

I made this last winter on a cold afternoon, so within few minutes the hot cheesy parathas turned cold and couldn't able to click the gooey cheesy texture. May be i should try this now as weather is too hot these days. If possible, will make it sometime soon and update the pictures. Now off to the recipe..
