Instant green chilli pickle ' microwave recipe'

Instant Chilli pickle 'microwave recipe '

A quick concoction that you can make whenever you have a few extra chillies in your vegetable basket or in garden . Shelf life is good so you might like to make it in a larger quantity .




Ingredients:
3/4 cup mustard oil
2" piece ginger , ground
6-8 cloves garlic, ground with ginger
1/2 tbsp each cumin, fenugreek seed , mustard seed pounded
250 grams chillies , washed and chopped
1/2 cup vinegar
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
1/2 tsp salt or to taste
1-2 tbsp sugar

Method:

Wash and spread the chillies on a kitchen towel to dry. Once they are dry cut them in 1” pieces. Place in a bowl.
Put the oil in a microwave- safe dish and microwave at 100% power for six minutes. Drop in the ginger garlic and seeds, and continue to cook at the same level for 3 min more .
Add the chillies and cook another 2 min.
Add the vinegar , turmeric , salt. Cook at the same power level for 2 min or till the vinegar starts boiling . Reduce power level to 60% and cook another 6 min . Stir in sugar, dissolve and cook 2 minutes more .
Cool and bottle.

Note:

This pickle improves with keeping , as it sits you will notice that the oil will come up to the surface and thus help to preserve the pickle.

Choose medium spicy chili which are long and thick. I choose Indian green chillies thick one which we generally use for pickles and fritters.

If you are not comfortable with vinegar you can add juice of 3 lemon instead .Finish pickle within a week then.

Like all pickles make sure all the utensils you are using is dry. Sterilize the glass jar by boiling it in a hot water for a few minutes and let it dry completely before using it. This will increase the shelf life of the pickle.

Oats dosa with drumsticks sambhar

Oates Dosa

Health is wealth .....it is really important to be fit and healthy. I realised that, some change in lifestyle can help in maintaining a balanced diet. To apply it in daily routine...I have started a Diet food series.
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! I love dosas and in fact I'm planning to make one today in breakfast. And it's not just because they taste divine but also because they're really fun to make: Right from grinding down the urad dal and rice, letting the white stuff ferment to running your ladle through the batter checking for lumps, it's almost therapeutic. After your pour the batter down a hot sizzling pan, even the wait to figure whether the dosa will stick or not is a delicious feeling....Dosa with healthy twist will make this delicious treat more interesting.

 Jaggery Coated roasted chickpeas 


Ingredients:

GURWALE SHALGAM ( SWEET AND TANGY TURNIPS) punjabi style

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.
This recipe is from my mother in law's cook book , my mom In law was an excellent cook and being a panjabi, her excellency was panjabi cuisine. She was excellent at cooking all panjabi dishes like sarson ka saag, makkai ki roti, gur ke chawal  or any vegetable like turnip or kormas, . I have learnt almost all panjabi dishes from her and I really wanted to thank her for that , today whatever I make related to punjab reminds me of her . Lov…
