Dry fish with colocasia leaves


Colocasia is a tropical plant found in entire northeast India.  Its every part is edible.  Its leaves, stems and roots.  But Some may not like it. And some may be allergic to it. There are many varieties of colocasia found in this region. In this recipe  I am using small colocasia  plant's leaves with stems.


There are many varieties of dry  fish  available in the market. Here  in this recipe I am using small dry fish which are dried on smoke over the open fire cooking stove by the village people.


INGREDIENTS:

• A bunch of colocasia leaves with stems

• 2 tbsp lentil

• 10-15 dry fish

• 1/2 tbsp ginger garlic paste

• 1 small onion finely chopped

• 1/2 tbsp turmeric powder

• 1/2 tbsp black pepper

• 2 tbsp oil
&
• salt to taste


METHOD:

Soak dry fishes in warm water for 5 minutes.

Wash colocasia leaves with stems in running water.  Chop roughly.

In a pressure cooker take lentils.  Rinse and add 2 cups of water.  Add colocasia leaves with stems. Close  the lid. In high heat cook for 2-3 whistles.

Remove from heat. Let the cooker open itself.

In a pan heat oil.  Add ginger garlic paste.  Add chopped onions.  Add turmeric. Mix well.

Pour everything from the cooker.

In high heat cook for some time. Mix well.

Add salt. Add dry fishes.

Add black pepper powder.

Cook for 5 minutes in medium heat by covering the lid.

Remove from heat.

Serve hot with steamed rice.

  2. I totally think this recipe would work for me, minus the fish - vegan, sorry. If I'd take out the fish and make this with some beans I can see it becoming a delicious meal! :D

Potato Croquette / Aloo Chop

Potato croquettes are fried potato rolls, coated in breadcrumbs, crispy from outside and soft from inside.  In Indian potato croquettes are called aloo chop or potato chop. 

These potato croquettes are actually very easy to make.  You can use your leftover boil potatoes to make it.  You can also add meat, vegetables, cheese or anything of your choice.  The only rule to make these croquettes are that you have to roll croquettes over breadcrumbs and fry in oil.

Today I am going to share a easy vegan aloo chop recipe. Try it at home and don't forget to subscribe to my blog for more such easy recipes.

Assamese Anguli Pitha Recipe

Anguli pitha is a finger shaped recipe made from rice flour.  The Assamese word 'anguli' means fingers and 'pitha' is a type of rice cake. It's an Assamese style recipe that can be served as breakfast(jolpan) or as a snack with the evening cup of tea.

The recipe anguli pitha requires little time to prepare.  As today is Sunday, a holiday, I decided to prepare this recipe for breakfast. It's a very simple and less spicy recipe. This recipe that I am going to share is a salty one but there is one sweeter version of this anguli pitha recipe, which I will share some other day. The type of rice that I am using is called 'lahi chawl' in Assamese which I received from my maternal uncle who is a farmer and he grows rice on his own paddy field. You can use any other type of rice also.  You can also use ready-made rice flour available in the market.  But I preferred to make it myself and therefore I soaked 1 cup of rice on Saturday night to prepare anguli pitha.

Cheese Corn Toast Recipe

Cheese Corn Toast is a simple breakfast recipe that can be prepared within just 5 minutes. This cheese corn toast is my daughter's favorite.  I made this last Saturday.  If you are a follower of me on Instagram , I'm sure you have seen this pic.  With the similar idea I made Roti Pizza (Indian flat bread pizza) last Sunday.


As my daughter doesn't like onion and capsicum, I haven't added these two veggies on the toast. But if you like, you can add. I'm using ready to eat sweet corn here to save time. It's a no oven recipe.  I made it in a flat pan (Tawa).

Paneer Tikka (Grilled Cottage Cheese)

Paneer Tikka is an Indian dish made from cottage cheese cubes marinated in different Indian spices and grilled in a tandoor, microwave or tawa. We can also add pieces of onion, capsicum and tomato in this recipe. You can serve paneer tikka as a starter.

This is probably my last blog post of 2019. Only couple of hours left for 2020 while I'm typing this recipe. The whole day I was very busy. From evening onwards I prepared many dishes as a part of year ending celebration. I made only vegetarian food today. Today is tuesday and in India  tuesday is considered as a holy day and therefor many Indians eat vegetarian food on tuesdays. We too eat vegetarian food on tuesdays but we have a different reason for it.  As my father-in-law died on tuesday,  we don't eat non-vegetarian food on tuesdays.

As a part of year ending celebration, I prepared panipuri in the evening followed by mixed chat. 





Then I prepared paneer tikka for starter for the dinner.  For the main course I cooked tawa r…

Indian Red Lentil Soup with Lentil Dumplings/ Assamese style Bor diya Tenga Dail

I generally use sun dried lentil dumpling in red lentil soup which are easily available in markets and it also saves time.  But in this recipe I made dumplings myself from urad dal (split black gram). It is very soft and fluffy in comparison to the dried one. Dried one is little hard and you can directly add it to the dal after shallow fried.

Red lentil with sun dried lentil dumpling 
Indian red lentil soup with lentil dumplings can also be served as a side dish with rice. It is very easy to prepare as I'm using pressure cooker to cook red lentil.  You need to soak split black gram for few hours to make dumplings. The dumplings can be prepared by dip frying instantly after the batter is blended.
