Growing up, I lived on story books and the many different dishes that the characters enjoyed in the books. Be it Famous Five, Secret Seven or Harry Potter, the sandwiches, the cakes, the lemonade captured my fancy like nothing else. When I started baking, the first thing I wanted to bake was ginger man.
Pressure Cooker Recipes
As the theme says, the recipes have to be completely made in the Pressure cooker, including any and all tempering, seasoning made in the cooker. For most Indian recipes, cooking in pressure cooker is not a big task. However I must mention you should end up selecting recipes that are mostly done in other methods, but how you have adapted to a pressure cooker method.
Of course, all three days should feature recipes in combination listed below. If you take the first group, then you have to feature soup/stew, bread and rice for each day.
One Pot Meal
The recipes can be from any cuisine, course etc..
I know this is my favorite! and am sure many others too.
Let's talk about don't first, It can't be Onion pakodi...:)
It can be made with other tubers. the batter can be of any flour.
Has to have one with lentil as main ingredient. The batter can't be like bajji (liquid), meaning Bajjis can't be called Pakodis. The batter has to be thick, fritters. Guess you get the draft!
The finished product should not be like the regular Masala vadai or meddu vada, meaning not a flatten disc.
Cooking with Chickpea
The dish has to have the chickpea as whole
The dishes can be made with split Channa dal, Kabuli channa, Indian brown channa.
The dish can't be with Besan or with chickpea paste.
Dishes from West Bengal
As the theme says, select three authentic recipes from Bengal and post on your blog. Remember the dishes should not be fusion, must follow as per the cuisine style.
Cooking from a TV Drama Shows/Soaps
Select a TV drama show from any Channel and feature three dishes that are mentioned in the serial. Remember all three should be from the same show. It can be any language, only condition you got to cite the source, online mention, it can either be video or written where the character cooks these dishes. PS: This can't be from any Cookery show, should only be from a soap or drama.
With Deepavali being on November 13th, let's celebrate with Diwali special dishes.
