Tangdi kebab- Nawabi style

   Tangdi kebab is my all-time-favourite and that too at hyderabad, that is available 24/7.  But rather than traditional masalas, i enriched my kebabs more my adding khoya/mawa along with usual spices with a touch of cheese.  The kebabs turned out to be quite delicious, and i called it a NAWABI style of kebab :) :)

Ingredients required:

For home-made masala, one red chilli, one tsp jeera, 8-10 garlic pods, 1tsp kasoori methi, 1/2 tsp dhanya, 1/2 tsp peppercorns,1/2 tsp saunf/sombu, and dry garam masalas like 2 stick of cinnamon, 3 cardamom, 3 cloves.  Just grind all the above for home-made masala

And of course, two BIG tangdi's (about 350gms of chicken)

One cup home-made khoya, one cube cheese and mixed masala(our home-made masala+1 tsp salt+ pinch of haldi+1tsp dahi+1tsp chicken masala+1 tsp tandoori masala+1/4tsp amchoor powder)


At first, mix all masalas, khoya and cheese.  If possible blend all three to get a uniform purree of fine masalas, (I blended them )

Toss the chicken legs all around, and let this marinate this form some ten hours in refridgerator.

Finally grill them at 200 degre celcius for 30 to 45 minutes, turn them around for a while.  Our delicious tangdi kebab is now ready to serve

Want a bite?????

Aloo ki paratha- tiffen box idea

Aloo paratha is favourite for my kid, because she has craved a love for it eversince she was one year old, whenever we went out in weekends, we would order her one non-spicy (they used to add chopped green chillies and chilli powder usually) aloo paratha for our kid first and then go with our menu.  I dedicate this recipe for my sweet varsha kutty!!

   Ingredients required:

   We need half a cup of mashed potatos, and dough made of 2 cups aata and half a spoon salt

Other ingredients are ginger-garlic paste, chopped greenies(i used mint leaves and methi), spice mix consisting of a pinch hing, salt, white pepper and one tsp cheese scrappings

 The above mixture got by mixing mashed aloo with other ingredients, this is stuffing



From the aata, roll out a tiny circle of dough and spoon a filling in it

Fold it on all other sides and bring the edges to connect each other, to resemble circular dough

Roll it using pin to normal partha shape and toss it in tawa, drizzling with oil

 Now it is ready to pack in our kutty's lunch box, dont forget to add sauce sachet

Varshu!! i am having a surprise
