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.

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.

Kala Chana Ghugni or Kala Chana Curry Recipe

Kala Chana Ghugni

Black chickpeas curry or kala chana masala is very popular in UP and Bihar by the name of “ghugni” yes, kale chana ki ghugni. Chana ghugni makes me nostalgic and reminds me of those special Sunday breakfasts when this spicy chana ghugni was served with piping hot puris. It even reminds of those small eateries located in the Varanasi’s lanes where they use to serve it with crispy kachoris. The “kachori galli” is certainly the “must visit” place when in Varanasi.
The best part about this curry is that, black chickpeas are “powerhouse of nutrients”, a good source of protein and fibers for the vegetarians. It is a spicy and flavorful curry where the masala envelops the black chickpeas. There are two versions of it which are usually cooked dry and gravy depending upon with what you plan to serve it . I am sharing the curry version here which goes very well with parathas, puris or rice and I will share the dry version too in coming days. I prefer not to tamper with the original recipe because nothing tastes like the authentic “chana ghugni”.

I would love to hear how you make this curry at your place and do share your feedback or suggestions in the comment section and yes, don’t forget to show your love if you liked the recipe.

Who doesn’t love piping hot Momos or Dumplings or Wontons served with fiery schezwan sauce or spicy tomato garlic chutney? Momos is one of my favorite street food and I crave for it often. You can find many street food vendors in Delhi or Mumbai also selling these steaming hot beauties. Every new place has a unique taste and there are so many variations now available like tandoori momos, fried momos, etc. I prefer the steamed version as it is more healthy compared to the fried ones. My recipe is inspired by the chicken momos recipe by Sanjeev Kapoor but I have modified it a bit by adding whole wheat flour to avoid the all purpose flour. So, follow this chicken momos recipe step by step and make your family and loved ones happy with these Nepali delicacies.
