Butter Chicken Pizza.



Do you know which is the most popular recipe on my blog-Its Chicken Butter Masala....and my favorite chicken recipe......yes, I make it often as it goes perfect with roti, fried rice, methi pulav, gobi paratha.....

Butter Chicken Pizza is my Inidianized pizza makeover.....you could say that this is an Indo-Italian delight....hey, fusion food is the latest fad.


This pizza is so easy to make with left over butter chicken gravy and a few pieces of chicken......with the cheesy topping....nobody could resist.....why go to pizza hut...when you can make healthy homemade ones??

I added dried Italian herbs to the pizza base....and that gave a subtle Italian flavor with the Indian topping...this pizza was a huge hit with my family and neighbors....try it...you will love me more, honestly :)


So lets begin..
Please read my homemade pizza dough post if you are a beginner....or a new reader.

Ingredients:
Flour/Maida: 2- 21/2 cups.
Instant yeast: 1 1/2 tsp.
Warm water: 1 cup plus about 1/3 cup.
Sugar/honey: 1 tsp.
Salt: 1/2 tsp.
Ghee/olive oil: 1 tsp.(can add more if you are not calorie conscious)
Cornflour: Little to sprinkle and grease your hands.( If you have cornmeal then Great! its the reason for that extra crunchiness).
A tough spoon.

Dried Italian Herbs: Basil and Oregano (1/2 tsp each).
 For the topping:
3 to 4 tbsp of the gravy of the chicken butter masala.
2 or 3  chicken pieces, shredded.
1 capsicum chopped.
Coriander leaves to garnish (optional).
Processed cheese: 1/2 cup or 3 cheese slices or cheese cubes. (you can use your favorite cheese, I  just used what I had in hand, I used Amul Cheese).

Method:
Sprinkle yeast on the water....sprinkling works best!!

See it is starting to work.

Mix the flour with the yeast, salt, sugar and herbs with a spoon.

Lastly knead with greased hands or add little oil to the dough and knead....cover and keep in a warm place for 2 hours.

After two hours the dough will be doubled.

Sprinkle cornflour or cornmeal on the baking sheet. Spread the dough on to the baking sheet with your fingers....Nidhi was helping me with the dough :)

Put a nice dollop of the curry gravy in the middle.

Spread it out.

Sprinkle the chicken pieces.

And the chopped capsicum.....coriander leaves.

Lastly add cheese.....yum that's the best part....I used Amul cheese slices and cheese cubes... just crumbled them on top....you can use mozzarella or any other of your choice.

Bake in a preheat oven for 20 min at 180 C....or until the cheese melts.

Enjoy!!

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…

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.

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, …
