Every happy occasion is celebrated with “Kuch Meetha” in our culture. And almost all festivals or occasions are associated with a ritual of making something sweet. I am sharing this post of Sweet Coconut Samosa with a twist of salted caramel sauce. Sounds interesting? These baked sweet samosas can be made for any occasion or even on festivals for guests and salted caramel sauce makes it tastes even better. One more recipe with a twist is on the blog Rice pudding with Vanilla Flavor.

The coconut filling I used in these samosas is inspired by Udiche Modak. Yes, right those steamed Modaks made during Ganpati festival because I simply love it. The sweetness given by jaggery with a dash of freshly grounded cardamom powder  to the shredded coconut tastes so good. I used the Sprig’s Whole Green Cardamom and it’s the best. I was having some spring roll sheets with me so I used it to make the samosas but you can use the regular samosa dough too, just ensure you roll it thinner than regular samosas.

I am a true lover of salted caramel flavor be it popcorns, frozen yogurt, shakes. I am the happiest person after  receiving a jar of Salted Caramel Sauce from SPRIG gourmet. This luscious milk cream caramel has a  touch of pristine sea salt. I am totally hooked to it and simply licking it with a big spoon just like that because it is soooooo yum. You may also top this Sprig Salted Caramel sauce over a cake or fruit salad, fill in pies, or drizzle over ice cream or puddings.

In this recipe, I have baked the samosas in the oven instead of frying it however you can fry it too. Once, the samosas are done finally top it up with lots of salted caramel sauce. With Christmas and New Year around this is a recipe you can definitely try. Let me know, if you try the recipe and do share your feedback in the comment section.

Since holi is around so this post becomes special as making Dahi Vada is like a ritual at my place. This Dahi vada post becomes more special because it’s non-fried and steamed.

Fried Vada or Steamed Vadas?

Why opt for fried food when we can recreate the same taste with the healthy alternative. You should bookmark this steamed dahi vada or non-fried dahi vada recipe or try it on this Holi festival and surprise your guests by telling that it’s not fried.

Dahi Sev Batata Puri or Dahi Puri is a popular snack or chaat item which is especially popular in Maharastra. Dahi Puri is simply yummy with sweet, sour and spicy flavors in it. The puris are filled with boiled potatoes, chutney, onion and dahi. You can use tamarind and green coriander chutney for making Dahi Puri. If you follow me on Instagram you know I love chaats and street food and especially Pani Puri. I start craving for it if I don’t have it for long.

This Dahi Sev Batata Puri Recipe video is also very special because this is my first recipe video and let me tell you this blogging has made me learn so many new things. I was a complete zero in all this video making and editing thing but I thought of diversifying into vlogging as well and thus, my research and study about video making and editing started. I am glad I made my first recipe video ALL by myself and posted it with lots of thoughts and fear in my mind but I am glad as the comments and response are really encouraging.

Egg Chop or Dimer Chop Recipe

Delicious Egg chop

 

Egg chop is a lip smacking deep-fried snack option. It is made from boiled egg and boiled potatoes. I first time had egg-chop in Varanasi where it is available on almost on all the egg stalls so you can easily get your hands on it. These deep fried ball shaped chops are bound to attract you. Whenever I am in Varanasi, I try to relish kachoris, samosas, chaats, sweets and yes…egg-chop. The mention of egg-chops makes me nostalgic and I start missing Banaras.  It’s very popular in Bengal too by the name of “Dimer Chop or Egg Devil”. I read that they make it in two ways either the egg is coated with mashed potatoes or minced meat. If you love eggs like me then do check this recipe of Egg Pepper Fry.

Egg Chop

Egg chop is one of my favorite snack and must-have item when I am in Varanasi. The egg chops topped with green coriander chutney, chopped onion and some chaat masala sprinkled over it tastes simply amazing. It is very easy to make and you can be served to your egg-e-terian guests too. It’s a hit item for the kid’s tiffin box also. You can make some changes in the recipe like making the mashed potatoes more or less spicy as per your preference. However, to give it more crispy texture people roll the chops in bread crumbs before frying since I was not having crumbs prepared so I added cornflour to the potato mixture which acted as a binding agent during frying. I strongly feel that the green coriander chutney enhances the taste of these chops. Will be sharing the recipe of green coriander chutney on the blog.

Do give it a try and let me know your feedback or how you make it in your home. If you try this recipe and post it on Instagram don’t forget to tag @savorytales.

Chana Dal Fara /Gojha / Peetha – Steamed lentil stuffed dumplings

Chana Dal Fara

Chana Dal Fara is another popular dish of UP and Bihar. I posted the Kala Chana Ghugni recipe earlier and hope to post more regional cuisine recipes. Fara is also called gojha or peetha in different parts of the state. It is a gujiya shaped steamed lentil stuffed dumplings. There are two variations of fara or gojha, one is made with wheat flour and another one with rice flour. At my place, we prefer to make the wheat flour fara. We use soaked chana dal mixed with some spices as stuffing and stuff it in poori sized fara shells.
