To prepare white sauce, heat butter in a heavy bottomed pan, add flour. stir continuously on medium heat, until flour turns light brown. Remove from heat and gradually add milk, stirring continuously so as not to form lumps. if lumps do appear, press them against the sides of the utensil to dissolve them. Take out 3 Tbsp of white sauce from it and keep aside.

Put the sauce pan back on fire and cook till the white sauce turn very thick and start leaving the sides of the pan. Add salt, pepper and cheese . Remove from heat

Now add boiled vegetables, paneer , green chilies, coriander, onion and 2 Tbsp bread crumbs, mix well, refrigerate the mixture for a while so that it become easier to handle the mixture.

Shape the mixture into 12 rolls.

Dip each roll in remaining white sauce and coat well with bread crumbs.

Oats dosa with drumsticks sambhar

Oates Dosa

There's nothing more inviting than hot South Indian breakfast: strong filter coffee, piping hot drumstick sambher with little bits of coconut, tasty coconut chutney gunpowder and golden-crisp Dosa!

 Jaggery Coated roasted chickpeas 



Turnips are called Shalgam in Punjabi/Hindi, Gonglu in Punjabi and Gogji in Kashmiri. They are mild in taste and absorb spices well. We love it in various forms. Shalgam is a winter vegetable and is a popular recipe from Punjabi cuisine. Shalgam (Turnip) belongs to the radish family. Shalgam ki sabzi is very good for health as it is very low in calories and fat, and a good source of fiber and several vitamins like Vitamin C, Vitamin B, VitaminB3, Vitamin B6. Gur is Hindi/Punjabi for jaggery.  This creamy version from Punjab is one of our favourites.
