Baati Recipe: Wheat Pockets

Wheat pockets following baati recipe. You may call it stuffed baati, but it's open like a basket. Just stuffed the wheat basket with potato filling. Worth a try for occasional oil-free treats! Made on gas stove.


baati
Recipe:

1 cup wheat flour
2 tbsp oil
salt as per taste
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp carom seeds (ajwain)
Little water to make dough - should not be too soft nor too hard

Mix everything and make a dough. Keep aside for 20-30 minutes.

Potato Filling:

2 boiled potatoes (mashed)
1/2 tsp fennel seeds (saunf)
1/2 tsp cumin seeds (jeera)
1/2 tsp coarse coriander powder (I used home made)
Salt as per taste, 1/4 tsp oil, 1 tsp ginger- chilly paste
Sambar powder- 1 tsp (optional) (I used home made)  Here's the sambar powder recipe.

Take a pan, heat oil.
Add cumin seeds, fennel seeds. Stir
Add coriander powder. Mix and add ginger-chilly paste.
Add salt
Add mashed potatoes.
Mix everything well. Add sambar powder. Switch off the flame.

Let's prepare the baatis.
Roll out small balls from the dough. Take one ball, roll it out like a small chapati. Add the filling. Close the sides like a basket. Follow the same process for all baatis. Brush baatis with little oil.
I used little dough to make baked wheat chips along with baatis as shown in picture.

Take a skillet (tawa). Keep a greased pressure cooker over it. Place baatis on the surface of the cooker. I also placed the wheat cubes along with baatis. Cover the cooker lid and remove the whistle.
We need to bake on a medium flame. Keep an eye on the baatis after 5-10 mins. You may have to switch sides intermittently for even baking. 
It may take 18-20 mins or more. Keep an eye on the sticks, which may bake quicker than baatis.

Eggless Cake Without Raising Agents: A No Baking Powder, No Baking Soda Sponge Cake Recipe

When you are able to bake an eggless cake without raising agents, your happiness knows no bounds, right? This is exactly what I am in for today. What started as an experiment has worked out wonders for me.


I was trying to hone my cake baking skills while learning a few baking basics. Then struck this idea of baking a cake without baking powder or baking soda. A loved one is suffering from histamine sensitivity, and these chemical agents trigger urticaria, which gives me goosebumps. So I decided to go the other way round - baking an eggless cake without raising agents.

You need a light flour here - something that would effectively replace maida/all-purpose flour/refined flour/white flour. I remember one dhaba wala telling me once about how they replace maida sometimes - using a mix of jau and rice flour.

So this is exactly what I needed. This has given me one of the simplest yet tastiest cakes. Please do not change the flours, as I am unsure how any other flour would work here. I will…

OPOS Sambar: Hotel-Style Sambar With No Fuss; Ready in 10 Minutes

Think of South Indian food, and idli, sambar, and dosa would strike your mind first of all! Isn't it?






















Yes, this is the quintessential south Indian menu that has become widely popular world over for its rich taste, unique flavors, and nutritional boost! Well, this is exactly what inspires most of us north Indians to cook south Indian food. I  must admit I love Chettinad cuisine, Malayali food, and of course, Tamil recipes.

Savor any recipe bursting with coconut flavor and you would want to have it again and again. At least, this is my experience! South Indian food has been instrumental in making me a coconut lover. Don't believe?
