Egg Paratha/Egg Roll




Egg paratha or egg roll is an easy, quick breakfast. Egg paratha is so easy to make if you have left over roti, some veggies and an egg. While growing up, I used to call it as egg roll, and amma used to packet it for lunch, she used to add chicken bits and cheese sometimes. I was one picky eater those days, and this way amma used to incorporate eggs and veggies in my diet...ahh! those were good old days..and terribly missing amma's food :(

Fast forward to present 2013; I make this for my kids, usually as a lunch box meal.....I wrap in a foil paper so that the roti retains its softness....sometimes when I am in no mood for an elaborate cooking, I make this with leftover rotis...its so quick and easy....you should try this :)


I am using only one egg and 2 rotis with little vegetables. I have used very minimal oil...sort of trying to reduce oil and cook low calorie food for everyday cooking.

Perfect breakfast or meal for your kids....your hubby....or just for you.
Pure whole wheat meal...with the goodness of egg and vegetables.

Author: Nisa Homey
Ingredients:
Egg: 1, lightly beaten.
Pepper powder: 1/2 tsp.
Tomato: 1 medium, chopped.
Onion: 1 medium, chopped.
Capsicum: 1/2, chopped.
Green chilly: 1, chopped.
Salt to taste.
A bit of oil to drizzle on the tawa or skillet.
Roti/Chappathi: 2 nos.

Method:
Break the egg into a bowl, add in salt and pepper powder, and lightly beat it. Meanwhile, heat tawa or iron skillet pan and simmer the fire.

Add the chopped vegetables to it and mix well.

Drizzle a bit of oil, (I used about 1/2 tsp); on to the tawa and pour half of the eggy mixture on to the tawa. Spread it lightly if needed with a spoon.

Immediately place a roti on top of it (no need to use hot roti, here I used leftover precooked refrigerated roti).Press down with a spatula...this for the egg to hold on to the roti while it is being cooked...wait for 1 or 2 min....remember fire is on low.

Then flip it over...that's it. Repeat the same with the other roti.....have you noticed though I called it a paratha it has very minimum oil....dieters are you listening??

Roll it and serve.

Notes: You can sprinkle grated cheese, boiled chicken bits or cubes and roll for that extra zing.
If you are packing this as a lunch box meal for your kids, do wrap it in a foil.

  10. This is similar to the breakfast burrito that is served everywhere in New Mexico. However, we don't create the flat egg mixture and then roll with the paratha. I love that idea! It makes a really cool breakfast!

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, …
