I have taken quite a big break between Idea No 3 and Idea No 4 . But here it is for you.
This box contains :
Carrot ,spring onion and coriander parathas,
Homemade Apple Muffin,
Apple Juice and of course Water.
Sorry I took so long to post the recipes . Yesterday was a busy day with unexpected guests coming over in the evening and you know what. After the guests left I did remember about the unposted recipes but was too tired to type. But today morning while eating the same parathas that were leftover I knew I had to complete my post as soon as possible. So here they are.
The parathas are the simplest ones ever.
You need :
1.5 C Whole wheat flour, 2 green onions finely chopped, 1 carrot grated, a handful of fresh coriander finely chopped, 1 heaped tspn coriander powder, 1 heaped tspn cumin powder, 1 heaped tspn saunf powder, 1.5 tspn chilli powder, 1 tspn sugar, 1 tblspn oil, salt to taste
Method: Mix all the ingredients, and knead into a dough not too soft not too firm. At the last stage oil your palm and knead the dough until nice and smooth .
Roll out thick parathas and roast on both sides. A few minutes before you want to pack these spray a tiny amount of oil on to the skillet and warm the parathas on both sides spraying oil on the other side of the paratha too.
I spread some hummus on one paratha, ketchup on the second one and sprinkled dry chutney on the third one before rolling them up.
Now for the apple muffins. I tried these for the first time but they turned out well.
1 heaped tblspn butter, 1/2 C sugar (use brown sugar preferably, it's delicious), 1.5 C plain flour, 1.5 tspn baking powder, 1/2 tspn salt, 1 egg, 1/2 tspn vanilla essence, 2/3 C milk, 1 cup pureed raw apple, 1/2 tspn cinnamon, 1/2 tspn nutmeg
Mix all the wet ingredients in one bowl along with the sugar (the butter , egg, milk and apple puree) . In another bowl sift together the flour , baking powder, and the spices . Next add the dry ingredients to the wet ones and fold gradually. Don't over mix or the muffins will turn out dry. It's OK if you have a lumpy batter.
Spray oil on a muffin tray and spoon the batter into it. Bake at 230 deg C for 12 mins
Try these out!!
