My family loves chapatti and parathas more than rice. I try to make it even more special adding some hidden veggies or greens  to taste a bit different than a usual one. So here is one special parathas from Tomatoes. A very healthy variation to the usual parathas. Its spicy, tangy and flavourful.


2 Cup Wheat flour.

2 Medium Size Tomatoes.(ripe)

1 tbsp Red chilly pd (kashmiri pd)

1 tsp Grated Ginger.

1/2 Jeera pd.

1/2 tsp Ajwain.

1 tsp Ghee.

1 tsp Oil.

Salt to taste.

Water as needed.


Heat oil in a kadai. Add roughly chopped tomato followed by salt and stir till it becomes mushy. Add red chilly powder, jeera pd and mix well. Keep it aside. Now take a big vessel, Drop in wheat flour, grated ginger, tomato mixture, ajwain, ghee and knead it a soft dough adding adequate amount of water. Then divide the dough into small balls and roll out little thicker parathas. Heat pan, drizzle some oil or ghee and cook these parathas on both the sides.

I always loved Pannacotta. The very first I tried was with mangoes which was a super hit. Herez the link i tried. Click here

Using the same procedure I tried with pineapple which was equally tasty and flavourful. The freshness of pineapple was just outstanding.


1 Cup Fresh Pineapple juice( hommade )

2 tbsp Sugar.

1 tsp Lime juice.

Yellow colour ( optional )

3 tbsp Agar Agar


Take the pineapple juice and gently boil on a low flame. Add rest of the ingredients and keep it aside to rest. Sidely prepare agar agar mixture as mentioned in the link posted above and mix with the pineapple mixture and refrigerate.

The bottom layer of milk cream ingredients are same just like the one I made for mango pannacotta.

It is one of the best finger licking paneer dish made from the chunks of deep fried marinated paneer mixed with capsicum and onion sauteed in Chinese sauces. That can be served a s starters or as an accompaniment. More than gravy, I just love the dry version when it is flavoured with roasted garlic. Its totally yum.


2 Tbsp Maida.

2 Tbsp Cornflour.

1 Tsp Soya sauce.

Pinch of Cooking soda.

Water as needed.

Salt to taste.


3/4 Cup Cubed Paneer.

1/4 Cup Diced Capsicum or Bellpeppers.

1/4 Cup Diced Onions.

2 Tbsp Chopped Garlic.

1 Tbsp Chopped Ginger.

1 Tsp Pepper pd.

1 Tbsp Soya sauce. ( if its dark one, reduce the quantity )

1/2 Tbsp Chilly tomato sauce.

1 Tbsp Cornflour mixed in water.

Pinch of Sugar.

Salt to taste.

Oil for deep fry.

Green part of spring onion.


Combine all the ingredients given above for making batter adding water. Batter should be thick enough to coat the paneer cubes easily. Dip the cubed paneer and deep fry in hot oil till both the sides become slight brown. Drain on absorbent paper and keep aside.

Heat oil in a pan. Fry chopped garlic and ginger followed by onions, capsicum adding a pinch of salt. Make sure the veggies are not over cooked. Add all the sauce,  pepper pd, sugar and cornflour paste. Bring them to boil. Drop in the fried paneer and mix well. Garnish with greens of spring onions and serve hot hot :)
