Coming back home… wanted to try and make my version of the dish…

Cheesy Veggie Bombs



This is a very easy starter or snacks for the evening. I am sure children will love it too... vegetables like zucchini, brinjal, spinach, boiled raw banana are used with cottage cheese or grated cheddar cheese. To enhance the taste used mozzarella cheese cubes in the center of the veggie balls. Serve with tomato ketchup. 




Ingredients 
1 medium size  Brinjal peeled and chopped into small cubes 
1 medium size Zucchini peeled and chopped into small cubes 
Few Spinach Leaves chopped 
1 medium size Onion chopped 
5 to 6 Garlic Cloves chopped 
Few Green Chillies chopped 
Few Coriander leaves chopped 
1/2 cup  Cottage Cheese mashed or grated Cheddar Cheese 
Mozzarella Cheese cut into small cubes
Salt to taste 
1 /2 to 1 tsp Pepper powder 
1/2 tsp Curry powder or Cumin powder  (Optional)
1 cup + 1 cup Bread crumbs 
1 tbsp Oil + Oil to Fry

Method 
Take a pan, add 1 tbsp oil, once the oil heats up, add onion and garlic, sauté till the onions are translucent. Add the brinjal, zucchini, spinach and green chillies. Sauté and cook until the vegetables are cooked and the moisture has dried up. Add the salt, pepper and curry powder, stir and cook all the ingredients together. Switch off the flame. Let the veggie mixture cool down. Add 1 cup of the bread crumbs, cottage cheese or cheddar cheese  and coriander leaves. Mix and bind all the ingredients together. The mixture should not be wet,  as it has to form into a ball. Incase it’s wet, add more bread crumbs. Apply oil on the palms. Take a big lemon size portion from the veggie mixture. Create a cavity and add 1 to 2 mozzarella cheese cubes  into the cavity.  Roll the portion back into a ball. The mozzarella cheese should be well covered. Roll the ball in the remaining bread crumbs. Heat the oil, repeat the process with the remaining veggie mixture. Once the oil heats up add the veggie bombs into the hot oil. Fry on medium heat until golden brown on all the sides. Serve the veggie bombs with tomato ketchup  and a hot cup of tea.

Malai Tangdi Kabab


Now the best way to enjoy restaurant food is to make it at home, one of my favourite restaurant dish is Malai kabab... I had 6 pieces of chicken tangdi at home. So marinated the chicken tangdi. Since the kababs are made in tandoor and we don’t have at home, we can give a smokey flavour by burning a charcoal piece and placing it on a small plate and placing the plate on the chicken pieces and pouring little oil over the charcoal and closing the bowl with a lid, before grilling the chicken pieces. 
This dish can be had as a starter. Garnish the Kabab with onion, mint, tomato and green chutney. 
Ingredients 
6 Chicken drumsticks 
1 tsp Garlic paste
1/2 tsp Ginger paste
Juice of 1/2 Lime 
1/4 tsp Fresh Green Chilli paste 
1/4 tsp White Pepper Powder 
3 tbsp Fresh Cream 
4 tbsp Hung Curd 
1/2 tsp Shahi Garam Masala powder 
Salt to taste
1 tbsp Mustard Oil 
1 tsp Butter 
Onion rings, Mint leaves and tomato for garnishing 

Method
Take a bowl, add the curd, ginger, garlic, green chilli, lime juice, salt,  pepper and garam masala and mix well, add the chicken tangdi. Rub all the ingredients well. Marinate it for minimum 2 hours. The longer it’s kept it’s better. I had kept it for 8 hours. Now add the cream and the mustard oil and keep it for another 2 hours. 
Preheat oven at 200 degrees celsius. Place a aluminium foil on the baking tray. Place the marinated chicken drumsticks on the foil. Add some marinated juices, put the tray in the preheated oven and grill it for 15 minutes, remove the tray and turn the chicken pieces, add the remaining marination and grill for another 15 minutes. Remove the tray from the oven, apply butter on the chicken tangdi.
