Wraps and Rolls

Finally, I made them – WRAPS!

Ever since I made the Peppered Paneer, I’ve been wanting to put it in a wrap. (On the Mumbai roads, they are called ROLLS)

So,

last night’s dinner was :

1. Paneer n Aloo (potato) wrap

2. Grilled chicken and Aloo wrap

3. Egg n chicken wrap

The results were amazing. They tasted quite like the ones on the streets. Yipeeee…………

Check out the pictures.

Hung Curd Dip

I enjoy making the Hung Curd Dip as my hubby relishes it. I usually make a big bowl of it on Friday so it lasts till Sunday evening.

We usually have it with a bag of potato chips. Sometimes, I add crudites (carrots and cucumber). We watch a movie, the dip and chips between us and a good 2 hours go by.

I like having carrots and Reliance potato chips with the dip. (See earlier posts).

MTR – Madras Sambar Powder

MTR Madras Sambar Powder

MTR Madras Sambar Powder

I used this powder to make Sambar last night . I served it with idlis (see earlier post) and malgapoodi chutney (post to follow).

Years ago if anyone told me to use MTR products, I would have desisted – and desisted hard. However, in the past few months, I have been using a lot of their products – and I am impressed. REALLY. I highly recommend MTR brands now. Most of the foodstuff I really really like and some like this is decent.

To make sambar – using Madras Sambar powder is quite decent. Just follow the directions on the back of the packet and sambar is ready. The only addition I made to this recipe was I added red chili powder for more a spicy flavour.

Brand name: MTR Madras Sambar powder

Availability in Mumbai: I picked this pack when I was in Bangalore. I’m not sure if its available in Mumbai as I have checked a couple of grocery shops here and they don’t stock this product from the MTR range. However, it is easily available in any of the store in South India.

Idli Sambar

I made a South Indian dish – Idli sambar for dinner last night.

Idli is fermented ground rice and lentil, which is steamed and served with sambar and chutney. On steaming each idli puffs-up and is quite delicate. Its a lovely light eat. Infact, it is served as a breakfast item on many menus.

However, last night, I cheated. I just bought the idli batter from the market, and steamed it. But the sambar was home-made. Its an MTR branded powder (see next post) and I definitely recommend it to anyone wanting to make sambar  – tasty and with no effort. The small side dish is the malgapoodi chutney (also spelled malagapodi). Add warm ghee to it and serve with idli or dosa. (see following posts for the brand I used)

Medfouna – Berber pizza

Again – A pizza!

No seriously, its not a pizza as we know it. Medfouna is a Moroccan baked flat bread with a flavorsome stuffing. Its a filling mainly of herbs and spices and meat. Its actually a calzone.

Medfouna literally means ‘buried’. In the ancient times, the burning coals would be doused in the sand. The bread would be lowered into this hot sand and covered till the bread cooked in the heat.

I had downloaded this recipe way back in 2011, but baked it only 2 days ago. I loved it. My neighbour loved it. I made the vegetarian version, so hubby said ‘liked’.
