Image
Jhal Muri
Kolkata's Jhal Muri is a simple yet delicious snack. It is served as street food in Bengal. The word 'Jhal' means spicy and 'Muri' means puffed rice/murmura. So it's a spicy Indian street food recipe that can be put together in just 15 minutes. To make this dish, you need just a few ingredients. Starting with puffed rice/muri/murmura, it should be fresh. Otherwise, microwave it for a minute to make it a little crisp. You can also dry roast it in a pan if you want. The other key ingredients are mustard oil. cumin powder, chaat masala, chilly powder and black salt. The raw mustard oil gives a nice pungent taste to the dish. Along with this, lemon juice, freshly chopped coriander leaves, tomatoes, onions, green chillies, boiled green peas, boiled potatoes etc are also added. Just mix all the ingredients in a bowl and serve immediately. It's the perfect tea time snack for you and your family.  Happy Cooking!

Baked Multigrain Chips | Homemade Chips with a Tangy Tomato Flavour

Image
Baked Multigrain Chips
Healthy and crispy multigrain chips with a tangy tomato flavour. These baked chips are a great substitute for the store-bought fried potato chips. To make these chips at home you'll require, all-purpose flour, wheat flour, corn flour, gram flour, ragi flour, cornmeal, rice flour and semolina. To add the tomato flavour, I have used tomato soup powder. Then just mix all the ingredients in a bowl and make a soft dough. Using a kitchen press, make small chips. If you don't have a kitchen press then you can also roll it out using a rolling pin. Then cut it into squares. Bake them in a preheated oven for 10 to 15 minutes. You can easily store these tangy chips in an air-tight container at room temperature.
