Mini Pizza Tart

Pizza is a popular American food which is readily available in many restaurants. Kids always get very excited just hearing the word Pizza, but we all know it contains a lot of cheese and is not very healthy if consumed regularly. Therefore, when you prepare it at home you can control your own ingredients and make it more healthier. You could reduce the amount of cheese as well as add more veggies or meat. To make mini pizza tart, you will need mini tart pans which are available in stores. For a more appealing look, add handles to your pizza tart as shown in this recipe. I am sure your guest and kids would be impressed with this mini pizza tart. 

Churma Ladoo

Churma is a popular and traditional Rajasthani delicacy. Churma is part of a main meal known as Daal Baati Churama which is very famous in Rajasthan, India. Churma is a prepared using coarse ground wheat flour, cooked with ghee and sugar/jaggry. Although it is a very simple recipe however it takes long time to prepare and requires patience. The Churma balls are cooked on low to medium flame to ensure it is cooked well. There are two ways it can be served as a Churma granules or made as a Ladoo. These ladoo looks very similar to besan ladoo and takes time to make each one of them. These delicious ladoos are also used to worship Lord Ganesha. I am very thankful to my friend for sharing this delicious recipe.

Methi Wheat Garlic Naan (without yeast)

Naan is an Indian flat bread, made with fermented all purpose flour and roasted in clay tandoor or oven. This yummy soft & fluffy bread is famous across India, and varieties of naan are served in Indian restaurants. In my earlier post, I had shared tava garlic naan using all purpose flour. The process to make wheat methi garlic naan recipe is almost similar except for the dough preparation. This recipe is made using wheat flour and fenugreek (methi) leaves and topped with garlic, coriander leaves, kalongi (nigella seeds) and sesame seeds and roasted on stove top on tava. The texture is slightly different but is still soft and fluffy and tastes great. Naan breads generally taste great with paneer or chicken curry. The texture of the wheat naan are very close to the restaurant naan. In this recipe, I have used baking soda and baking powder but you use yeast too.

Garlic Naan Without Yeast

Naan is a very famous Indian flat bread across India and now even in other part of the world. My kids are big fan of naan and kulcha. There are many type of naan you can find, like plain naan, butter naan, garlic naan, paneer naan and so on. The garlic naan is made using all purpose flour(maida), yogurt, baking powder, baking soda which is kneaded with warm milk. This recipe is without yeast but also you can make naan using yeast. The garlic naan is topped with chopped garlic, coriander leaves and Kalongi (nigella) seeds. You can also make it using normal wheat flour however the texture and taste would be different.  Traditionally, naan is made in a clay tandoor however generally we won’t have it at home so we can use a stove or oven. This naan is prepared using iron tava and cooked on stove flame/heat. The texture and taste is very close to the clay tandoor. To make soft and fluffy naan leave the dough for overnight after preparing. You may have to try it few time before it starts coming up nice. Enjoy restaurant style naan at home with your favorite curry.

Veg Pizza Pav (Dinner Roll)

Pav is an Indian bread which is used in making many street foods such as dabeli, pav bhaji, vada pav and many more. Making pav is easy and made with all purpose flour (maida) or refined wheat flour. Other ingredients include salt, milk, yeast and butter. Making pav is simple & easy however it is very important to prepare a right dough mix, dough rising and baking time. You could easily find pav (dinner roll) in supermarkets however making fresh pav at home always tastes awesome. This recipe is made with all purpose flour but you can make it using wheat flour as well. Veggie pizza pav sound interesting, isn’t? The same pav stuffed with veggies flavored with pizza seasoning. This is perfect for lunchboxes or after school snacks for kids. Pav is all time kids favorite and pizza pav would be a delicious twist to original pav. If you don’t want to make pizza pav, you could just make simple pav.
