Achari Paneer Tikka

Achari Paneer Tikka's are a delectable snack bites. The word achar means pickle & the spice mix that is used here in making these tikki's is used in most of the Indian pickles. This spice mix adds flavor to paneer when mixed in marination. While making the spice mix I fried spices a little crisp to get fine powder rather than coarse. I oven baked  these tikki's, but you can also pan fry them for a quick finish. To extend this recipe you can make a creamy tikka masala using this tikka's. For now I'm sharing this tikka recipe with you all. Here is a recipe for pan-fried Paneer Tikka dish, which can also be converted as a baked dish.

Gobi 65

Gobi 65 is a easy to make quick snack. My favorite version of 65's is Paneer 65 & always loved to order it or make it at home. This time I tried baked version of gobi 65 & interestingly it turned out to be great. As I have mentioned in my blog many times, I'm not a fan of deep-fried foods. I love shallow frying anything & everything. It kinda gives me a satisfaction that I'm taking control on what I dump in to my tummy. So with that inspiration I made Gobi 65 in both baked & shallow frying versions. I liked both the versions, but loved the shallow version as it has right amount of crispiness & oil to it. Sharing both versions of this dish here. Enjoy them as you like.
Prep Time- 45mins {30mins marinating + 15mins}
Cook Time-30mins
30 to 40 Cauliflower florets
4Tbs oil {for shallow frying}
2Tsp {For baking}
1/2Cup corn flour
2Tbs all-purpose flour
2Garlic cloves grated
1Tsp grated ginger
1/4Tsp turmeric
1Tsp red chili powder
1Tsp garam masala powder
2Tsp lemon juice
Salt to taste
- In a bowl take all the ingredients under batter. Add in little by little of water to make a some what thick batter. Adjust taste if needed.
- Now add in florets to batter & coat them well. Allow them to sit in batter for 30mins.
- Pre-heat oven @350F & line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Lay marinated florets in line on the sheet & in to the oven for 10mins.
- Remove from oven & by now the batter should be dried out. Brush oil on the florets on both sides & again in to oven for 15mins.
- Now you can see a nice crust on top of the florets.
- Remove from oven & cool them off on counter.
Shallow Frying
- Heat pan with 4tbs oil. To pan add few battered florets & fry them on both sides.
- Remove them on to a paper towel & repeat with rest of the florets.
- Serve them with ketchup & enjoy.
- Chili powder I use for cooking is extra hot & spicy. Adjust it in recipe as needed.
- You can replace garam masala with chat masala powder.

Baked Green peas

Baked Green Peas is a guilt free snack & it is also a sister dish of Fried Green Peas. This fried peas are widely available in Indian stores, but the sad part is they are deep-fried with god know's what oil they have used. I'm too reluctant in buying any kind of snacks from out side & that gives me a chance to experiment these dishes at home. I made this baked green peas to make them healthy & at the end result was yummy as the deep-fried one's. Try making this guilt free snack & enjoy !!! 
Prep Time-30mins {Thawing + Drying}
Cook Time-30mins 
1/2Cup green peas 
1Tsp oil 
Salt & chili powder for taste
- If using frozen pea's then thaw them & fresh peas are the hero then cook them ahead. 
- Dry peas on a kitchen towel & make sure they are dry before baking them. 
- Pre-heat oven @400F & line a baking sheet with parchment paper. 
- In a bowl take peas, oil, salt & chili powder. Mix them well & make sure that peas are well coated.
- Layer up the arranged baking sheet with green peas by leaving a little distance in between them.
- In to the oven @400F for 30mins or until green peas are crisp.
- Remove from oven & cool them on counter. 
- Store them in an airtight container.
