Fafda-SSF

Dear All,

Welcome to the blogging world. Its a great pleasure to say that I am participating in "Blog Hop Wednesday" started by Radhika on Tickling Palatea.

This is the second version of Blog Hop Wednesday which happens monthly once on every 2nd week of Wednesday. Earlier version used to happen once in 15 days in last year. 

Concept: In this version, every month one would be partnered with other fellow blogger and she/he can cook any number from her partner blog. On 2nd Wednesday you have to link it with partner's blog as source/courtesy and link it with Tickling Palatea

Rules: 
a. If one blog hop is missed also, you are not entitled to get into the other blog hop. Reason: Your partner for that month will definitely feel bad as her dish from her site did not get displayed.
b. You cannot enter in between as partners are already made for that month. But if registered then you are allowed from the following month. Click here to register.

I was partnered with Nayna Kanbar, a citizen of London who writes her posts in her own blog - simply.food. She submits her post to  City.Connect, she says "simply.food is a featured recipe author @ City Connect an online magazine which promotes everything from businesses to events, connecting people to each other in the local area and beyond."

Fafda - Chora Fari
I thank Radhika and Nayna to gave me a wonderful chance to provide an option and to partner with me respectively on this Blog Hop.

It was really tough to select one dish from her blog as it had many varieties of dishes. I had selected Fafda - a crispy snack as my partner dish and linked it here. It is also called as "chora fari", Indian tea time snack.

Ingredients: 
Fafda - B & W
  • Maida - All purpose flour - 200g
  • Besan - 50g
  • 1 tablespoon chilli powder
  • 2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon turmeric powder
  • 1/2 tablespoon sesame seeds
  • 1 tablespoon groundnut oil (Dhara)
  • 3 green chillies finely chopped
  • 1/2 tablespoon freshly chopped coriander
  • Water for making dough
  • Groundnut oil for deep frying
Never do this: As in my house Maida and Besan is stored in refrigerator they were cold and to get to normal temperature I made a mistake of adding little rice flour which made my fafdas to become hard. 

Method:
  • Put Maida, besan, chilli powder, turmeric powder, sesame seeds, chopped green chillies, salt, chopped coriander, oil and by adding water as required kindly make a dough.
  • Leave the dough for sometime to get settled down.
  • Make small doughs and roll them using rolling pin and cut them into desired shapes.
  • Fry them in hot oil and put them into vessel which drains oil. Vessel would have small pores.
  • Serve it hot with tomato ketchup or chilli sauce.
I had made into my desired shapes same like bajjis just because my son would love to eat thinking it is same. Great this idea worked out, he had 10 with tomato ketchup.


Aditya's activity: He came and prepared fafdas as rolls and round.
Do: Store these into air tight container to use them upto a month.  I made these yesterday(10thJan2012) and unfortunately I did not do that and lost the crispy-ness the today (11thJan2012).
