Potato Hearts#Foodieextravaganza

Today is  event day for Foodie Extravaganza  our  Host is Anne Lawton. Since February 8th is National Potato lovers day  she asked us to share our favorite  recipe. Thank you Anne for hosting this month's event.

These potato hearts are pan fried. Made these as starter for girls who came home to practice for the Mehendi dance. 

Ingredients 
6 Large Potatoes
1/4 Cup Olive oil
1 Teaspoon Salt
1 Teaspoon freshly ground pepper
1 Teaspoon Mixed Herbs
½ Teaspoon Paprika powder
Juice of Half a Lemon

Method

Fill a pot with about 2 liters of water, add a tablespoon salt, bring to boil, then reduce heat to gentle simmer.
In the meantime peel potatoes, slice them, into 1/4 inch thick slices, then take a small metal cookie cutter and cut into hearts,  and keep aside. 
Cut out as many hearts as you can. 
Cook potatoes in simmering water for just 2 minutes, drain potatoes and let them cool slightly  and  coat them in oil.
Combine all the ingredients for the marinade, coat the potatoes, let it sit for 10 minutes.

Then heat a non stick pan  and pan fry them till golden on both sides. 
Serve hot.  These are really yum and  do not require any dipping sauce.  Potato Hearts will vanish as they are being served, be sure of that.

Oats & Split Green Moong Chillas/Pancakes#Foodieextravaganza

A Happy and Prosperous New Year to all my friends.
The month of December was only parties, weddings etc..
enjoyed food and drinks to the hilt. Now it's  time to start a healthy life style, hope I can maintain this. 

Starting 2019 with a healthy breakfast dish for Foodie Extravaganza. Since the theme for this month is Oatmeal, our host is Wendy Klik . Made these fabulous, healthy pancakes that are high in protein, low in calories and filling.
.
Ingredients

1 Cup Split Green Moong Dal
1 Cup Oats
3 Big Cloves Garlic
2 Green Chillies
½ Teaspoon Grated Ginger
1/3 Cup Rice Flour - * see notes
Salt to taste
Water as required

For garnishing

Grated Cheese or Cottage Cheese - optional
Chutney or Sauce for Serving
Method 

Wash and soak the split moong dal overnight or for at least 4 hours. 
Drain the water and then grind it with rest of the ingredients using water just necessary to make a coarse paste. 
This batter should be thicker than a pancake batter.
 Heat a pancake pan and brush it with oil, take a ladle full of batter spread it into a thin chilla / pancake. Drizzle little oil on it. 
When it cooks it one side then flip it and cook for a minute ( this is optional). 
Fold it into a triangle and serve with chutney or sauce . Garnish with grated cheese.
These were fabulous, healthy and are high in protein.
My Notes
If you do not have rice flour at hand then soak 2 tablespoons heaped of rice grains along with the dal.
Do not brush too much of oil on to pan or else you will not be able to spread the batter.

Baked Chicken Borek#Foodieextravaganza

Turkish cuisine is famous for its  varieties of layered pies and pastries, called ‘Börek‘. Borek is a  made of thin layers of dough called yufka or phyllo, that can hold variety of fillings like cheese, spinach, meat or chicken etc. 
Borek often described as flaky  pastry pie ; made with several layers of yufka or phyllo sheets with oil or butter in middle of each layer.
This dish is best for your parties or tea times and this is a must try delicious recipe. Made this for my anniversary tea party with my trekking group. Made two of these one chicken and the other vegetarian one, which I will be posting later.
I have used the homemade phyllo sheets.. check this here Phyllo Pastry Sheets - Homemade

Ingredients  
12 Filo pastry  Sheets  or as required
For filling  
500 Grams Chicken Mince
2 Large Onions - finely chopped
1 Teaspoon Minced  Ginger  
1 Teaspoon Minced Garlic
Salt to taste
¼ Teaspoon Turmeric powder 
1 Teaspoon  Paprika powder
3 Tablespoons Finely Chopped Coriander leaves
2 Tablespoons Oil
For the pastry
100 Grams Butter  - melted 
A small Egg for brushing the pastry on top
Method
To make the filling  
Heat oil in a pan add the chopped onions and saute till they soften , now add the minced ginger and garlic and saute till then start to release an aroma.  Add chicken mince and turmeric powder  stir on high heat until  turns pink to white.  Add the paprika and salt, mix well and let it cook till  all the  juices evaporates and turns dry. Let it cool. Now add the coriander leaves and mix well.
For the layering 
Grease baking pan,  with melted butter well . Layer a sheet of filo pastry, brush it lavishly with melted butter, I layered 6 sheets and brushed each with melted butter.  After the 6th sheet , spread the chicken filling evenly and press it lightly.
Now add the remaining 6 sheets, brushing each sheet with melted butter and then keep the next sheet.  After all the sheets are placed, brush the top lavishly with butter.  
Now brush it with egg 
Give cuts  with knife , as per your desired size pieces right till the bottom taking care not the separate the sheets.  
Bake it in a preheated oven at 170 C, for 35 to 40 minutes or until it gets a nicely  golden. 
Chicken Borek is ready to serve.  
These were flaky and scrumptious, enjoyed by all.
My Notes:
While layering the sheets tend to tear or break, but do not worry since they will be covered with other sheets. You can use even the cut sheet or torn sheets for layering. Even I have used the some pieces of sheets or torn sheets for layering.

Chicken Ramen Soup#Foodieextravaganza



Since November 12th is National Chicken Soup for the Soul Day. We are asked by our host Stacy to create our chicken soup recipe. 
My niece who often visit's Dubai is famous for posting her favorite Ramen Soup pic.  Inspired by her love for this soup, here is my take on the Ramen Soup. Though I, have never tasted this soup, made it as per the pic she post. It was simple to make yet very delicious and soul comforting. Loved having it.
Serve 2
Ingredients

1 Chicken Breast
5 Button Mushrooms- sliced
1  Bok Choy - chopped
1 Celery stem - chopped
2 Cups Chicken Stock
2 Tablespoons Light Soy sauce or according to your taste
A Dash of Chilly Flakes
Salt And Pepper to taste
1 Teaspoon Parsley
1/4 Teaspoon each Butter & Sesame Oil
2 Soft Boiled Egg
2 Small Packs Ramen Noodles

Method

Heat a grill pan with butter and on high flame sear the chicken breast till it changes color  and get grill marks on both sides
In the same pan add the mushrooms and saute for a minute.
In another sauce pan add the stock, celery stem, bok choy, parsley, the chicken and mushrooms bring this to a rolling boil. Cover and let it simmer for 5 to 7 minutes on medium low flame. Now add the soy sauce, sesame oil, salt, pepper and chilly flakes mix this well and let it simmer on low flame again for 3 -4 minutes.
In the meantime boil the egg and noodles. Keep aside.
When the soup is done serve it hot.
First arrange the noodles in the center arrange the chicken slices and egg slice as shown in the pic and pour in the broth and enjoy.  This is a healthy and filling soup, does not require any accompaniment.
