TIFFIN SAMBAR RECIPE -FOR IDLY/DOSA/PONGAL

NOTES:
  • You can add 2 or 3 pods of garlic while cooking the dhal.
  • U can add carrot also while adding potatoes with the dhal, but there is a chance for carrots become mushy, so only I didn’t add.
  • Otherwise you can cook the potatoes and carrots separately and add at last while adding dhal.
  • Adding asafetida 2 times gives very nice flavor to the sambhar, so don’t omit.
  • Adding chilli powder/sambhar powder is optional. You can omit this and add 1 or 2 more green chillies to adjust the spiciness. The amount of green chillies is depends on your spice requirement and the nature of chilli. My chillies are not so spicy. Remember the sambar masala will also be little spicy.
  • So at the If you want more spice you can sauté 2 or 3 red chillies in sesame oil and can add, or add one more teaspoon of sambar masala powder.
  • Don’t add more tamarind, because tomatoes will also give little sourness to the sambhar.
  • You can add 2 or 3 springs of curry leaves at the end along with coriander leaves. This gives nice fresh flavor to the sambhar.
  • Adding jaggery is purely optional. But it helps to balance the spiciness, and sourness of the sambhar. You can add a teaspoon of sugar instead of jaggery.
  • You can make this sambhar little more thinner and can serve along with pongal and vada.
  • You can add chopped brinjal also along with carrot.

MINI PIZZA is nothing but a smaller size of our normal pizza. Few days back I tried this mini pizza (cups) for my little daughter. This is the first time am giving her pizza. Actually in our family me and my husband, both are not a big fan for pizza. So very rarely that too unavoidable situations only we eat pizza. So till now only very few times, out of them the pizza which we ate before 5 months during our visit to France. Really that was so good and loaded with vegetables.

MINI PIZZA RECIPE USING WHEAT FLOUR- WITH PIZZA DOUGH RECIPE USING YEAST
                                                                                               
METHOD:
Firstly add the instant yeast in warm milk and sugar mixture. let it rest for 10 minutes (for yeast proofing). (Refer notes)

Grease the muffin pan with oil or spray and set aside.
In a mixing bowl take the wheat flour and add oil & water and mix well. It will look crumbled.
Then add the yeast and milk mixture and knead well. It will come as little sticky chapathi dough.


Apply some oil on the top and let it rest for around 1 or 2 hours for proofing by closing the dough with a wet towel. After the proofing time the dough size will be doubled.

Then take the dough and punch gently with your hands and gather as soft dough.
Make small equal sized balls and press each ball in the muffin pan as small cups.
Prick the pizza base with a fork or tooth pick on few places to get it cooked evenly.

Spread each pizza cups with the pizza sauce on the top generously.
Then keep the chopped vegetables on the top one by one and finally keep a paneer cube in each pizza cup at the center.


Lastly sprinkle some shredded mozzarella cheese on the top liberally.
Bake it in the preheated oven for 15 to 20 minutes or until the corner and the cheese on the top started to change its color as golden brown.

MINI PIZZA RECIPE USING WHEAT FLOUR- WITH PIZZA DOUGH RECIPE USING YEAST
NOTES:
  • The first step is purely optional, just to check the activeness of the yeast. If you are using instant yeast and you are sure that it is active you can directly mix the yeast in milk and add to the flour. No need to wait for yeast proofing.
  • I used the vegetables which I had in hand. You can add or reduce any of the vegetables as per your wish.
  • You can make it as single large sized pizza also.
  • You can replace wheat flour with all purpose flour. Adjust the water amount while kneading.
  • Proofing time for the dough will be depends on the climatic conditions. so let the dough to proof until it doubles in size.
