Yes…. You heard it right.. An eggless butterless Chocolate Indulgence cake.. and guess wot ?? It didn’t taste any different and the texture and the softness stayed right throughout 🙂 This was one of my happy baking…time and I will truly cherish…. Using an egg is not an issue at all. The thought that if I bake a cake at any point of time in India, the elderly crowd wud just stay away coz its got an egg… So didn’t want to drive them away from such delectable desserts .
B ringing this Podi straight from my grandma’s kitchen. This was first among the recipes I jotted before moving to London . You will find a difference in my lingo in this post… 🙂 Coz its just as my darling granny told me in her broken tanglish and I did a literal translation. Till date I have never bought any of these kitchen essential powders.. Just love the home made aroma…
I had promised H a new snack if he comes home early on this lazy snowy day.. And he suddenly pinged a while later.. saying be ready with ur Surprise snack .. Will b home in 20 minutes…
Wondering wot to do?? Immediately started browsing this lovely easy vegetarian book that I picked from the library.Came across this yummy potato snack.. Rösti.But it had different seasoning like Sage leaves & thyme. Didnt have any of them.. Was planning for an alternative seasoning.. just then my neighbour Granny came over and handed over a Shortbread cookies for Chritsmas.. They were lovely
.. I was asking her to suggest me a sesoning .. and she said.. I could use Coriander and Parsley in Rösti and they will make a lovely Scandivian dish.
H thoroughly enjoyed & relished the taste .My 22 months old moster loved it for it was just melting in his mouth … Thats the verdict..

Frying creates a lovely crispy crusty layer just apt for Rösti. They are just delicious by itself or could be served with a green salad.

Thanks to the Capsicum vendor at the farmer’s market who sold me at a real bargain .This instigated me to have a hands on at it… Well a definitely good try…. and will suggest novice starters to try them as their first preparation.
Coming to the recipe… Google is the best open book ,picked up tips from here and there.. and finally collated into My recipe..
Apart from the Green Chutney , this is one more chaat essential that is always stocked in my freezer. Call it Red Chutney or Dates Chutney or Tamarind Chutney or Meeta Chutney or Sonth Chutney.. Its the Same… Quite an essential ingredient for chat..
