Tandoori Chicken Pizza Recipe - How To Make Tandoori Chicken Pizza At Home




Tandoori chicken pizza, how to make tandoori chicken pizza at home. Tandoori chicken is a popular Indian dish and using it as a topping for pizza is a treat for all Indian food lovers.

This pizza is an easy one, I usually make pizza for dinner. It is slathered with my quick pizza sauce, shredded tandoori chicken, and cheese.....and the best part is that this dough is made with my food processor....my quick-homemade-no-knead-pizza-dough-in-my-food-processor...just put flour and yeast mix in the processor and blitz, scratch that....just count 1-2-3 ...homemade pizza dough is done....and I love this kind of lazy-indulgence while making food....(if you need some more food processor recipes, pls read my post).

I used my basic homemade pizza dough recipe with all purpose flour.....I did spice up the flour with dried seasonings to give the base a more Italian flavor....I love creating fusion pizza, my other favorite is butter chicken pizza.


This pizza is perfect for the baking beginner, a no excuse homemade pizza....so easy!

Note: Since the tandoori chicken is a bit spicy, I did not add any pepper powder or dried chilies.

Author: Nisa Homey
Ingredients:
For the base
Flour: 1 1/2 cups.
Instant yeast: 3/4 tsp.
Warm water: About 3/4 cup, it can be a little less or more.
Sugar or honey: 1 tsp.
Salt: 1/2 tsp.
Olive oil/refined oil: 1 tsp.
Cornflour: Little to sprinkle and grease your hands.( If you have cornmeal then Great! its the reason for that extra crunchiness).
Dried oregano: 1 tsp.

Dried basil: 1 tsp.

Pizza topping:
Shredded tandoori chicken:About 1 cup (I used left over tandoori chicken breast).
Quick pizza sauce: 3-4 tbsp.
Cheese of your choice: 3 cubes, grated.

Method:
Mix yeast and sugar into the warm water and keep aside.
Put the S blade in your food processor. Add the flour, dried oregano, dried basil, and salt into the food processor and blitz away.


With the machine still running, pour the yeast water mix through the feeder.....(sometimes u might need a little less or more water, so be careful)


Until the dough comes together


Plop the dough into a bowl. Grease your hands or drizzle 1 tsp of oil into the dough and just bring together the dough again....and keep it near the warmest place in your kitchen for about two hours.


Did I warn you that you will be running to the nearest dealer for a brand new food processor....food making is so easy...hmmm


I bake pizza on my baking tray, sprinkle cornflour or cornmeal on the tray and plop the dough in the middle.


Spread it out in your desired shape with your finger tips.....grease your fingers with a bit of cornflour, so that it does not sticks....those little specks of Italian seasoning makes it more yummier.


Slather quick pizza sauce on top of it.


And then the best part, shredded tandoori chicken on top.

And lastly grated cheese.


Bake in preheated oven at 180 degree C for 20 to 30 min or until done.

Serve while still warm.
The best thing about being a food blogger is that, there is never a shortage for tasty food ...now you know the tremendous support my family gives me for blogging...grin :)...grin :)
Enjoy homemade pizza...with all its goodness.

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.

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, …
