Treat from Hubby and Son ~ not in a Dream - in Reality ! Crispy Potato Bhajiya and Banana Brulee

#pyara ek bangla ho, bangle me gaadi ho, gaadi me mere sang balma bawarchi ho#



In my house sending my hubby to the kitchen is not an easy task at all...although he loves making tea....but apart from that, any other cooking is a no no..His excuses are that I make the best food anyway! ....but to please me he goes in the kitchen and makes something...oh yes! Cheese on toast!! ya that's what I get in return.. few days ago while we were sitting in the garden, my son asked for Bhajiya...which he loves!!  I was about to get up and was surprised by hubby he said don't worry Jagruti I'll make it !! I thought I'm dreaming or what? pinched myself..no, I wasn't dreaming!!Smiley I asked him; but you don't know how to make it...he said he has seen my recipe book where I've written down this recipe,(I got this recipe from a relative,where I  tasted it for the first time) and he  can follow the recipe and make it, I just have to tell him where all of the ingredinets are? So I showed him all the ingrdients and he made these Maru Style Crispy Potato Bhajiya !! they are very famous in london amongst the Gujarati people....and oh boy he made scrumptious  Bhajiya!!Smiley I enjoyed it very much..in so many years I've eaten something that I'll remember my whole life...So from now on he is not going to give me any excuse atleast for making this dish....even my kids agree with me....

You will need:-

  • 2-3 big potatoes

  • 1 cup Chick pea flour(besan)

  • 3-4 tbsp Green chilli and Ginger paste

  • Salt to taste

  • Fresh finely chopped coriander

  • fresh finely chopped spianch
Method:-
Peel the potatoes and slice very thinly...put it aside. Now put ginger,green chillies in the potatoes you have kept aside and sprinkle besan(bengal gram flour)till all the potatoes are evenly coated with besan and keep it aside for half hour,don't sprinkle water the water from potatoes will marrinate everything.Now add finely chopped green coriander and spinach leaves to it and mix well. after half an hour add salt according to your taste. heat oil in a deep pan and fry the bhajias till golden brown.(he didn't wait till half an hour)...Serve with the any sause or chutney....but we like this particular chutney whic is very famous here..although he didn't made it but I'll give you recipe for it.

For chutney take 2 ripe tomatoes,1 carrot,1/4 cup cucumber,green chillies and ginger according to your taste and grind it in a mixture,add salt to it and serve it with bajias.  Enjoy !!

And next day came another surprise from him..me and my daughter went on a girlie shopping spree and when we came home he presented to us a very sweet dish- Banana Brulee....while we were out he saw this recipe in our local supermarket's food magazine(ASDA) and he made it..actually he involved my son in it too..he helped him to peel and cut the bananas...and I really enjoyed this dessert the fullest coz it was made with lots of love by my handsome son too....

You will need and method:-

  • Put banana slices in indivdual ovenproof dishes.  Bring a custrd to the boil and heat for 5 minutes.  Pour into the dishes.  cool then put in the fridge.  Once chilled, sprinkle the top generously with caster sugar and put under a hot grill to caramelise.  Ready to serve..Enjoy!! 

Sending both dishes to Priti's current event His Cooking....and Crispy potato Bhajiya to Diana's event MLLA # 24, brain child of Susan's .
