BANARES KE BHARWA ALLOO ,..GHARWALI KHEER KE SAATH..

WHEN I SAW THIS RECIPE WHILE BROWSING THROUGH BOOKS IN LIBRARY,..WAS REALLY AMAZED,..LOOKED REALY YUMMY ,..SO THOUGHT OF PREPARING BANARASI BHARWA ALLOO,,ONE MORE REASON TO PREPARE THIS RECIPE WAS I WANTED TO KNOW HOW DIFFERENT IT TASTES FROM THE MASALA BHARWA ALOO WHICH WE PREPARE AT HOME..SO HERE COMES MY VERSION OF THE RECIPE
INGREDIENTS
POTATO THREE
GREEN CHILLI THREE CHOPPED
GINGER GRATED ONE TSP
CHOPPED DRYFRUITS ONE TABLESPOON
JAGGERY ONE TABLEPOON GRATED
SALT TO TASTE
FRESH CREAM ONE TABLESPOON
AMCUR HALF TSP
PULP OF TAMARIND ONE TABLESPOON
SEEDS OF CUMIN AND FENNEL ONE TSP
TOMATO PUREE HALF CUP
AND POWDER OF RED CHILLI AND TURMERIC ONE TSP EACH
OIL TO COOK
COTTAGE CHEESE
(PREFERABLY HOME MADE ONE)
PROCEDURE
FOR THE POTATOES
PEEL AND DIVIDE THE POTATO INTO PARTS,.WASH AND PAT DRY,KEEP ASIDE
HEAT OIL IN WOK SUFFICIENT TO SHALLOW FRY THE POTATOES,DRAIN OUT THE OIL AND KEEP ASIDE
ONCE THE POTATOES HAVE COOLED DOWN ,SCOOP OUT THE CENTER PART OF EACH HALF OF THE POTATO
CHOP THE SCOOPED PART AND KEEP ASIDE
FOR THE FILLING OF THE POTATOES
IN A MIXING BOWL ADD MASHED COTTAGE CHEESE ,CHOPPED GREEN CHILLIES,CHOPPED POTATOES ,DRYFRUITS AND SALT,MIX WELL
STUFF THE POTATOES WITH THIS FILLING AND KEEP ASIDE
FOR THE GRAVY
HEAT ONE TABLESPOON OF OIL IN WOK
GIVE TADKA WITH ASAFOETIDA,FOLLOWD BY CUMIN AND FENNEL SEEDS
ONCE THEY START CRACKING ADD GRATED GINGER AND FRY FOR A MINUTE OR TWO
NOW ADD TOMATO PUREE,TURMERIC POWDER AND RED CHILLI POWDER,.
ADD WATER TO THE MIX AND KEEP STIRRING
NOW ADD TAMARIND PULP,AMCHUR,JAGGERY AND SALT
KEEP STIRRING,NOW ADD THE STUFFED POTATOES TO THE GRAVY,,AND KEEP COOKING ON LOW HEAT
ADD FRESH CREAM,..AND ENJOY WITH HOT RICE OR NAN...
GHARWALI KHEER
WHILE COMING BACK FROM GYM,.I FELT LIKE EATING KHEER,CALLED UP HUBBY AND ASKED HIM TO BOIL MILK AND SOAK RICE,.FOR KHEER,.BY THE TIME I REACHED HOME,..MILK WAS ON STOvE,..AND HUBBY WAS ADDING SOAKED RICE IN THE BOILED MILK,,..AFTER THAT I CONTINUED,..I DONT LIKE KHEER WHICH IS IN LIQUID STATE,,AND I KNEW IF I ASKED HUBBY TO CONTINUE,,HE WOULD HAVE PREPARED THAT WAY...SO I KEPT STIRRING..ADDED FEW STRANDS OF SAFFRON,SUGAR NEEDFUL AND FINALLY AFTER SOME MINUTES,,DELICIOUS KHEER WAS READY,,..
I AM SENDING BANARASI BHARWA ALLO AND KHEER FOR SWC UP HOSTED BY NUPUR OF CINNAMON HUT
