Bread Pinwheel with Jam / Nutella in 10 min

DPP_0006 Sometimes ,somethings taste heaven if served fancily… Just like this pinwheel today.  The jam / nutella sandwitch that we prepare for the lil ones can be made attractive with these bite sized pinwheels . They can just gobble a few running around the house .. Why lil ones?? I found them quite attractive.. They make a lovely party starter at your lil one’s party.. Did I say 10 min to make the pinwheel ? Yes.. Infact its 3 minutes to spread & roll , 5 minutes to rest in the wrapped state and 2 min to cut the pinwheels. Get help from your lil ones to give them the pride of making their own snack..

Sabudana Vada | Sago Seeds Dumpling

L  ovely Weekend… With a picnic lunch at Virginia Waters Lake… A good 4.5 miles walk around the lake and enjoying the best of the british summers… on a perfect Sunda.y… Packed a few nans and roti’s from the birthday party on Saturday and made Kadai Aloo to go with it 🙂

Today’s post on Sabudana Wada is a creation out of no special occasion or treat. I m just on a spree in finishing the stocks in my pantry.. Thats when I came across this left over Sabudana . I love the way my momma makes Sabudana Khichadi… I havent reached her perfection point.. My hubby found my version not up to the mark.. though I tried a similar way… But not with the wada’s . Bingo!! Came out perfect and ideal as a starter or as tea snack . This Sago Seeds Dumpling hails from Maharashtra and is particularly made during fasting.

Chickpeas Sundal

Couple of weeks back ,we had a potluck tea party home . Each of us had cooked a snack ideal for the evening..But tea party went on and the snacks made up for the heavy dinner.  Menu was Spicy Maggie , Paneer Tikka , Spicy sundal  & Fruit Kheer . Offocurse we had it with tea.. Coz it was Tea Party!!
My dear friend Anu had made this Sundal soo beautifully with such simple ingredients that I couldnt stop myself from asking her to write for me…. Luckily I did manage to get some nice clicks…

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..
Sending it across to WYF: Tea Time Snack event organised by EC of  Simple India Food

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.

INGREDIENTS:

Large Potato: 2 Nos
Chopped Coriander Leaves: 3-4 Tsp
Dried Parsley: 1.5Tsp
Cheddar Cheese: 3-4 Tsp
Olive Oil: 4  Tsp
Salt: To Taste
Freshly Ground Pepper: 1/2 -3/4 tsp

DIRECTIONS:

  • Peel the potatoes and grate on the coarse side of the grater to get the texture. Pat dry using a kitchen paper and put it in a bowl. 
  • Finely chop coriander leaves . Add the herbs to the potato mixture and mix them well. Add the cheddar cheese , required salt and pepper and mix well. 
  • Using Hands , shape a heapful tablespoon into a ball.Repeat the process with the rest of the mixture. 
  • Heat Oil in a non stick fry pan , Now add the potato cake to the pan and flatten it with a long handled turner. Fry until golden brown in a low flame. Turn the Rösti over and cook for another 10-15 minutes until golden and cooked thoroughly. 
  • Repeat the process with the rest of the potato cakes. Transfer the rösti to a serving plate and serve with ketchup or with green salad.

KITCHEN NOTES:

  • We can also par boil the potatoes before grating. I havent boiled the potatoes in this procedure.
  • Also we can use butter instead of Olive oil for a lovely butter flavour. Increase the cheese for the cheesy twist.
  • I have added Salt & pepper while preparing the potato cakes. But some people prefer to add them just over the top before serving.

Cheers
