Ensaladilla Rusa#FoodieExtravaganza

Welcome to this month's event in Foodie Extravaganza {Party}. We are celebrating World Tapas Day our Host Juli Meyers asked us to prepare Tapas.
This traditional tapas is served throughout every region of Spain, with little variation. Ensaladilla Rusa is easy and simple Spanish salad , a version like the Russian Salad - except in this no fruits are added.  
This colorful salad is served at nearly every tapas bar; it is even served free at times with an order of alcohol.
Serves 3
Ingredients

1 Medium Potatoes - skinned and cubed
1 Carrot -  diced
1/4 Cup  Green Peas - I used frozen

1/4 Cup Chopped French Beans
1 Small Onion - chopped
1 Tablespoon Each Red & Green Bell pepper - diced
3 Tablespoons  
Pickled Gherkins /Dill Pickle - sliced
1 Tablespoon Capers
1 Hard Boiled Egg -  chopped
1/2  Cup Mayonnaise
1 Teaspoon Lemon juice
1/2 Teaspoon Dijon mustard
Freshly ground Black Pepper, to taste
Chopped fresh Parsely, to garnish


Method
In a saucepan, cook the potatoes and carrot in lightly salted water. Bring to a boil and allow to simmer until almost tender. Fold in the peas and beans, and cook until all the vegetables are tender. Drain the vegetables and transfer them into a serving bowl. Add the onion, bell pepper, gherkins,  capers and egg slices.
In a separate bowl,  combine the mayonnaise, lemon juice and mustard  very well. Add this mixture to the serving bowl, mixing well to ensure all the ingredients are coated. Sprinkle with pepper and toss. 
Garnish with chopped parsley and dash of black pepper powder,  refrigerate. Serve this salad cold.
The remaining next day I filled in a crusty bread and had it for breakfast.. it tasted so ooo good.  Yummy..yum.

My Notes
 As any dish made with mayonnaise, ensaladilla should be refrigerated and will not keep for more than 1 to 2 days.

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.
