i found these mini burgers in the shop the other day and did not know what to do with them
so i made a burger pattice with boiled and mashed potatoes, boiled peas, jeera powder, chilli powder ,haldi powder , and if you like a little garam masala and crushed garlic
knead or mix them together form a cutlet or patti and shallow fry on a non-stick tawa.
I forgot to mention the very important chaat item which people are seen gobbling up...
I love dahi wadas the most, for which the recipe you will find here . i decided to combine the recipe of dahi wada and make it a little bit more nutritious by adding the following things sprouted moong, soaked and cooked kabuli chana, and some mashed spiced potato.
The recipe remains the same as for the dahi wada , here you will see that i have added the sweet and sour dates chutney made using dates, tamarind,jeera,chillipowder and jaggery .And garnished it with finely chopped coriander.

I feel there is no greater feeling or the experience of having a hot “butta” or roasted corn on such a day.
CORN SELLER ROASTING FRESH CORN(check out the matching dress of the little girl)
I have pleasant memories of the early days of our married life when we used to take short weekend trips to nearby places like lonavala , khandala . we used to go out when it rained heavily ,stood under one umbrella and used to devour these hot coal roasted corn which were roasted in front of you on a cart and garnished with chaatmasala , red chili powder and salt.
Both the types are so different from each other in taste and looks, i love the sweet corn for its juicy and sweet taste and it can blend well with any curry, soup and even as a garnish or snack.
The roasted corn you see in the above pictures are roasted at home on my gas stove and not purchased from the vendor you see in the picture above.
I would love to know how a omelette is prepared in your house I am sure it differs from home to home.
In my house my hubby and son, don’t like to have whole cumin seeds or jeera in their omelette while I love the flavour, so to balance, I put a pinch of ground jeera powder per egg in my omelette.
In a bowl mix together finely chopped onions, a pinch of jeera powder (per egg), freshly chopped coriander leaves, salt, green chilies finely chopped and eggs.
Heat a non-stick omelette pan with a little oil. Pour the above mix and let it cook till its light brown, turn and cook it light brown on the other side too.
Serve with bread and ketchup or plain.
I have mentioned only the method as the ingredients and the proportion changes according to individual tastes.

I am always on a lookout for good breakfast recipes which can be swapped in place of dinner if the need arises.
I found such a recipe on a Marathi program on television which was good and I tried it out the very next morning.
3 medium sized potatoes cut into cubes.
2 medium sized onions finely chopped
1 small tomato finely chopped
4-5 eggs as per requirement
1 tsp chili powder
½ tsp haldi powder
½ tsp jeera powder.
Salt as per taste
Coriander for garnish.
when the onions turn translucent add the tomatoes and stir.
The mixture will leave oil after sometime.
Now add the cubed potatoes, cover and cook till the potatoes are ready.
Add the powdered masalas. Add salt, the Aloo mixture is now ready.
Take the eggs and break them on the potato mixture taking care that you spread the egg white evenly. Leave the yolks intact on the potato mixture.
You can garnish the egg yolks with finely chopped coriander. Serve hot with toasted bread

Today to satisfy my thirst for innovation I made a fusion which has chat item with a main course item. Believe me it tasted great!!!
You will find the recipe of Rajma in my earlier RAJMA TACOS post which you can find here.
Rest of the procedure is simple
Take sevpuri top it with rajma masala and garnish with sev and chat masala.
You can add tomato ketchup or cheese on top which is optional.
