I got the recipe for roganjosh from one of my favorite blogger.In a short period of time we became very good friends.Apart from being an excellent cook with great plating skills she is warm ,friendly and a comfortabe person to talk to.With a lot more push from all of us she can simply create wonders.Still wondering whom i am talking about?I am talking about none other than JZ of Tasty treats .

From the day i saw her roganjosh dish recipe i was really tempted and knew it would be a sure winner in my house and i was right.My hubby loved it so much that he has asked me to make it more often.I made slight changes in the recipe.I used chicken instead of pork and skipped the use of cream as i didnt have it at the time.But that didnt compromise the delicious flavor of the dish.I am sure it would only make it tastier.The recipe also called for cooking the dish in the oven but since boneless chicken breasts cooks up fast i did it over the stove top.Original recipe can be found here .

It tastes great with rice or rotis.We had it with some yummy mooli ka parathas .
I am sending this dish to vandana rajesh's chicken event.


Chapathi flour - 2 cups

oil - 3-4 tbsp

grated radish - 1 1/2 cups

onions - 1 cup , grated

red chilli pdr - 1 tsp

green chillies - 3 nos , chopped fine

coriander odr - 2 tsp

garam masala - 1 tsp

Hot water - approx. 1/4 - 1/2 cup

salt to taste

In a bowl mix flour,salt and oil.Nicely mix it together until the flour is evenly moist from the oil.Squeeze out the water from the grated onion and radish and add it into the bowl.Now mix the rest of the ingredients except water.Slowly add the hot water and combine everything together until it forms a soft, smooth dough.Refrigerate it for atleast 1 hr before making the parathas.Make small lemon size balls of it.Heat a griddle. Roll out the dough on a lightly floured surface.Do not make it as thin as a chapathi,keep it slightly thick. Put it on the hot griddle and toast it until both the sides get slightly brown.

I am sending this for Sri's roti mela event.

Awards time :).

Last week i was showered with some more awards.No matter how many times i receive it i feel the same thrill and excitement each time.

JZ gave me the rocking girl blogger and good chat blog award.Thank you so much JZ.I am really happy to receive this from you.

Shubha and Sireesha gave me the yummy blog award.Thank u so much Shubha and Sireesha.I am very grateful to you gals.

I also received an Inspirational award from Suma,Madhavi and JZ. The thought of me inspiring someone itself is so inspiring to me.Thank u so much gals, you are very sweet and kind.This is a very special award that i will cherish it forever.

This award was started by Jamie of the Flavour Pantry. According to Jamie,

“This is given to bloggers whose stories and recipes inspire us. Whether it’s to eat healthier, dive back into our past to conjure up something we ate as children, or just make the light bulbs in our brains go on with a new idea for a recipe. As recipients of this award, please share with us what inspires you and then pass on the Inspiration Award to 4 other deserving bloggers. Please let them know what the award means and what to do with it.”

Wow!!what a wonderful concept Jamie.Thank u so much for starting this award that is so inspiring and motivating many of us to do better.

What inspires me?

1)My parents with their unconditional love and support always keep me on the positive outlook.

2)My bro who always keeps me laughing with his great sense of humour and with his suggestions that helps me improve.

3)The almighty god who gives me strength to face difficulties in life and gives me hope that helps me move forward in life.

4)Many bloggers who motivate me with their encouraging and sweet words.
