These are the delectable methi flavoured puries loved by everyone in my family. These are great for breakfast and also as a great snack for tea time. It is also a perfect food to take for long journey as there is no need for any side dishes. I love to have this methi puri with Tomato thokku which I learn from my niece. Recipe for tomato thokku coming soon ;)
In this I have used simple dried kasuri methi leaves which is easily available in super markets. Or else using fresh methi leaves also taste good. Additional of besan gives you a bright colour and nice texture to your puries. Do try this recipe for sure :)


1 Cup Wheat flour

1/ 4 Cup Besan

1 tbsp Rava.

1 1/2 tbsp Kasuri Methi.

1 tsp Chilli pd

1/4 tsp Haldi

1/2 tsp Ajwain

1 tsp Grated Ginger.

3 tsp Oil

Pinch of Hing

Salt to taste.

Oil for deep fry

Water as per needed.


In a big mixing bowl add all the ingredients one by one except water and oil for deep fry. Mix well so that all the masala and methi leaves spreads equally. The amount of water depends on the quality of wheat flour so add water accordingly to make a tight firm dough. Cover and keep it aside at least for 15 min. Divide the dough into small balls. Meanwhile heat oil in a pan\ for deep frying. Now roll the small balls into thick puries and gently slide them into the hot oil. Fry them on both the sides. Drain them on a tissue and serve hot hot.

This is a tried recipe from Raks Kitchen. As always I am a big fan of her :) Each and every dishes ends up into perfection. One among is the Potato kurma  which is very flavourful and rich. It goes well with puries. I usually make kurma with mixed veggies but this is somewhat unique only with potatoes and i am sure its a super hit recipe for the potato lovers.

Quail eggs or the kaada mutta has 4 times nutritious value than a chicken eggs or duck eggs. It has lots of health properties in them like it increase your immune and memory, cures cough and asthma, balance cholesterol, reduce blood pressure, prevents chronic diseases and many more. The long list of minerals and proteins found in these tiny little eggs :)
On my current visit to kerala, I tasted boiled quail eggs for the first time in one of my cousin's place and I really loved it. The taste was pretty much like the normal eggs. The outer appearance and the size just nailed me. The very next day, I was lucky enough to see my nieces bought few eggs for me to take back to my home. I wish I get those eggs here in Mglore :( ....
Back to my dish, These Quail egg pepper roast is a great side dish  which is very popular in Kerala. It is a flavourful pepper based masala that can goes well with any of your favourite main course. I added Soya sause in my recipe as I would say thats one of my secret ingredients that not only makes the dish delicious but look wise it look more appealing and dark.  My daughter likes to have like a snack ..hahah .....

1 tbsp Crushed pepper pd

1/2 tsp Turmeric pd

1 tsp Dark Soya sause.

Salt to taste.


Remove the shell of boiled quail eggs and keep it aside. Heat a non stick pan. Add 1/2 tsp pf oil and drop the eggs. Roast them all till you see a nice brown crunch on both the sides of eggs.

Now add the turmeric pd, half of pepper pd, and a pinch of garam masala and stir well. Add soya sause and season it with salt. Once the masala are fry ed drop in eggs and cover for a min.
