Seyal Phulka – Leftover rotis in tomato garlic gravy

There is always 3-4 rotis leftovers at the end of the week. So I have make them gujju style dish called vaghariyu but got bored with same recipe so was looking to try new recipe where I can use my leftover rotis. In childhood mom used to roll up and deep fry those rolls or leave it match stick shapes and deep fry it but bachpan is gone and now all this healthy funda came in life so frying is not that much happening in the house, once a while I do fry puris as per my kids demand, which is now a days every weekend demand and I make an excuse and not doing it. Anyway so back to leftovers, found this delicious way to use rotis and tried it and have to share it with you all. I used my 3 left overs rotis which was two days old but after marrying in gravy and masala didn't feel like I am eating days old rotis. So next time you have leftover rotis or parathas use it this way.

Ingredients :

3 leftover rotis – bite size pieces
1 tsp. ginger, garlic and chili paste
½ chopped onion
1 tbsp. tomato paste
Few curry leaves
½ tsp. mustard seeds
Salt as per taste
1 tsp. turmeric powder
1 tsp. cumin –coriander powder
2 tsp. oil
Few fresh chopped coriander leaves
1 to 1 and ½ cup water, depend upon how old and dry your rotis are , add water as per that


In a pan , add oil. Add mustard seeds, when it crackles, add onions in it and cook till its little pink.
Add curry leaves, then add ginger, garlic, and chili paste along with tomato puree, cook for a minute. 
Now add both powder masala and salt and mix it, add chopped rotis along with water. Again depend upon how dry your rotis are, adjust the water.
Cook on low flame till water is gone and roti become soft.
When its done, add coriander leaves and serve hot.

Cookies and Cream Kulfi | Oreo Kulfi

I saw nice recipe of using oreo in dessert and specially making ice cream.But I wasn't sure about ice cream and its quality without ice cream maker, no matter how fool proof recipe is.  For me, my kids just love cookies and cream ice cream, they can finish Turkey Hill ice cream container in summer in no time. So I was not keen on making ice cream because I knew my picky eater will not eat it but I am sure about kulfi, that I can make nice and I know who can finish that, ME. So get my ingredients together, make it and chilled it and enjoyed it. You can make ice cream but my theory is if I am getting from store that particular item in less money and kids loved it why do I experiment at home ? so to save $1.99 I am not interested to make ice cream but kulfi is ready.

Ingredients :

2 cups heavy cream
2 cups whipped topping - Yes
Sugar as needed because oreo are pretty sweet
6 oreo crushed  - leave some big pieces if you like

Method :

Warm the heavy cream, repeat, warm not boiled.
Take it out, mix whipped topping, if adding sugar, add it now, and mix it with beater so whipped topping mixed nicely.
Add crushed oreo in it and put it in kulfi mould.
Put it in freezer for 8 hours, take it out from freezer after that and rub the mould in between your hand, take out kulfi and enjoy it while watching TV.

Strawberry Sparkling Water | Strawberry Soda

Now a days everyone like flavor water, fill up the pitcher with mint, cucumber , orange and lime wedges and drink it. Personally I don't like that because it becomes tart and Water does not smell fresh. Instead you can keep pulp ready and whenever you want it , you can add carbonated water in it and drink it or just add lime juice and make a lemonade out of it.  On Thanksgiving sale, we got soda maker, since then making carbonated water / club soda is very easy and fun. Kids love that and we can experiment with all kinds of flavors too. Its like making your own soda flavors. So this is kind of strawberry soda too. I make puree of strawberries with sugar and make a fine puree and sieve it so it has only pulp and not  seeds. You can lime juice and make strawberry lemonade or add sparkling water and make soda. So that's the recipe. You can adjust sugar as per the tartness of the strawberries.
