Spicy Vegetable Pizza....step by step.



This is my everyday low-calorie pizza. My simple spicy vegetable pizza.

I usually play with cheese here, I mean sometimes I use 3 to 4 types of cheese for topping, like mozzarella, processed cheese, cheese slices, cheddar etc. You can use any cheese no rule on that. Sometimes I like to add some boiled chicken.

This time I only grated some processed cheese......to make it less cheesy and low calorie.
I used dried oregano and basil leaves...please if you have access to fresh ones...use it!!
Ingredients:
1 ball of pizza dough.
Green pepper: 1, cubed.
Tomato: 1, cubed (I remove the seeds).
Shallots: 3 or 4, thinly sliced (optional).
Sun-dried whole Red Chilly: 2.
Dried basil: 1 tsp.
Dried oregano: 1 tsp.
Freshly ground black pepper: 1/2 to 1 tsp.
Tomato sauce: 1 to 2 table spoon.
Olive oil or ghee: 1 tsp.
Amul cheese: 3 cubes.
Cornflour: a little for greasing.
Salt as needed.
Method:
Please read this post for better understanding. Spread the pizza dough on a floured surface into your desired shape.

Brush olive oil or ghee on top.


Sprinkle finely chopped red chilly (or red chilly flakes), I just snip it with a scissor. Then sprinkle basil and oregano.

Then spread tomato sauce...well that becomes almost instant spicy pizza sauce.And oh if you cannot tolerate spice...forget the chilly altogether.

Spread shallots, green pepper, and tomato....

Top with grated cheese.....sprinkle a fat pinch of oregano, basil, pepper powder, salt, and 1 red chilly (flakes).

Put in preheated oven for about 20-25 min at 180 degree C or until done.

Tips: You can add mozeralla cheese for that cheesy oogey gooey.

Puff Pastry Recipe - Homemade Puff Pastry

Puff pastry recipe: Homemade puff pastry in 15 minutes, can you believe that??  Bakery style Puff pastry is so easy to make at home that you will never buy greasy bakery puffs. The best thing about this puff pastry recipe is that; it does not need any refrigeration (chilling the dough) or any other so called difficult method, you may see when you google for "puff pastry"

Easy puff pastry can be made with the most basic ingredients and in under 15 minutes.

Back in the 80's amma started making puffs at home; which my two brothers and myself used to enjoy a lot. She mostly used to make this for special occasions; like when a friend dropped in or when we long for something bakery style.

Fast-forward to 2014; my daughter, Nidhi loves puffs and I have been asking amma to teach me how to make and somehow things did not work out when I last visited her. Right now she is visiting us here in Calicut and I coaxed and buttered her to show me how to make puffs.

The first time she tau…

Caramel Pudding Recipe - Caramel Custard Recipe

Caramel pudding recipe; a delicious traditional dessert with creamy caramel over silky custard. Caramel custard is my favorite pudding.

All through my childhood, amma makes caramel pudding as a Sunday special.....achachen (my dad) love only this pudding...... 42 years of serving caramel pudding to him has made amma, a sort of an authority on caramel pudding recipe! Ah yes, like always this is amma's recipe. It is her signature, no-fail recipe. of caramel custard.



Okay lets talk about this pudding!!  I used 4 eggs because amma said so eggs are the show stopper here :)......it is needed to make the pudding silky-satin, and stand tall....and yes it will not crumble.....now you may wonder....won't this be eggy!!smelly!! I promise it won't....there wouldn't be too much eggy flavor! caramel flavor can do wonders!! Believe me!!



I am using my steamer or appachembu as it is known locally to cook the pudding. While the pudding is steaming, it is important that once steam comes, …

Vattayappam / Steamed Rice Cake / Kerala Style

Vattayappam is Kerala's own fermented SteamedRice Cake. One of the healthiest traditional tea time snack with almost no oil. It is popular in the Christian communities of Kerala, though not much popular in North Kerala/ Malabar.

 "Vatta" means "round" ......vattayappam is basically rice and coconut grinded together and fermented with yeast....it is very soft and pillowy.....a slightly sweet snack......these days, it has found its place in bakeries especially in Kochi and Kottayam...and when I got a request from an anonymous reader asking for vattayappam recipe...I thought of sharing the recipe...as it is very easy to make...and does not take much time to make. I usually make it as an after school snack as it is very healthy and filling for kids.
