Aloo Tikki | Potato Patties for Chat #chat #streetfood

Photobucket  I   have already posted  Aloo Tikki recipe earlier.. Will call this Version 2 ( V.2) .Much more simpler Alu /Potato Cakes recipe and  less time consuming. Got this recipe from my Gujrathi aunt who lives in London. She is quite an expert.. at it:) I was making Aloo Tikki chat and planned the next day some Ragda Patties .. When I was having a quick regular conversation with her.. Thats when I got this sooper easy recipe !!

Eggless Chocolate Chip Cookies

Eggless Indeed !!! My second treat for my family in India was Chocolate Chip Cookies. This got to be a bit chewy  …. Some of them were chewy… and some were crispy.. Its entirely to do with the time we bake 🙂

My grandpa made it a point to ring me after he had them with his evening Filter Coffee… coz he really cherished and thoroughly enjoyed the taste.. and more over it was his darling grand daughter who had made it!!!

My standard egg replacer is Yogurt.. Very easy to use and we are bound to get it right in the first attempt. My brother picked up Ener-G  , the egg replacer powder.. from US.. Definitely my future try’s will have them instead of yogurt!!!

Eggless Shortbread Cookies

 Excitement at its peak in hosting my first ever event …Thank you Cilantro in giving me this opportunity to host Global Kadai’s event this month. So wots the theme ??? Indian flavoured flatbreads….

Flatbreads is not a new terminology !!Infact its more like a  staple food for many of us.. We are all quite familiar with Paratha’s , Roti’s Puri ,& Tortilla’s.I was very surprised to learn that flat breads are not just Indian.. but very global…  So why not get Creative & bring out your imagination in creating Indianised Flat breads..  There are ample ways to get creative here.. Just get Vegetarian and cook ur Flat bread !!Happy Flat bread making  ….

According to Wikepedia,
A flatbread is a simple bread made with flour, water, and salt and then thoroughly rolled into flattened dough. Many flatbreads are unleavened—made without yeast or sourdough culture—although some flatbread is made with yeast, such as flatbread made with whole wheat flour. There are many other optional ingredients that flatbreads may contain, such as curry powder, diced jalapeños, chili powder or black pepper. Olive oil or sesame oil may be added as well. Flatbreads can range from one millimeter to a few centimeters thick. Flatbread was already known in Ancient Egypt & Sumer .
A whole variety of flatbread varieties from the world are listed here. Pick up any of them and give an indian & vegetarian twist.
