So this is the extension to the first part of Amazing Quick breakfast recipes for food lovers (Part 1)
This extension has got some more familiar, quick and easy recipes to cook and are also easy in terms of ingredients in your daily kitchen to cook.
- FRENCH FRIES.
We all love them and wish some more when our bowl of French fries finishes when we are out. So the advantage of cooking it at home is it’s of course healthier and you have them in loads to eat and store for future use too.
You only need good big potatoes for this to get long fries.
Grate the peeled potatoes sliced in a slicer. If you do not have a slicer you can always use your knife but make sure you cut them in the right shape. Cut in in circles first and then vertically.
Later drop them in ice cold water. Soak them in water till 8-10 minutes.
Then you can steam it for 2 minutes they are half cooked. If you do not have a steamer boil them till 5 minutes. It should be half cooked.
Dap them with a cloth and dry them out. Once they are nice and dry place it in a zip pouch and place it in the freezer for 15 minutes.
The reason why it is kept in the freezer is when it hits the oil is cooks slowly and gives the perfect brown color.
After 15 minutes fry them in hot oil. When it is crunchy and turn the color remove them out and drain the excess oil.
Sprinkle some salt and pepper when out with light hands.
Serve with tomato ketchup.
If you want to store it for long time – flash fry them for a minute and then cool them down, store it in a zip lock bag in the freezer.
- PANEER PAKODAS.
Pakodas are the best tea time breakfast with hot cup of tea. India have got a variety in the pakodas section but this one is my favorite. It’s yummy and different from the other typical pakodas. It’s quick also with the main ingredient being paneer.
Cut the paneer into cubes of size you prefer but don’t make it too small. It should be quarter the size of a bread.
Now we will make sandwiches out of 2 paneer cubes and the green chilly chutney. Spread the chutney on one paneer nicely all around and place the other slice on top of it making it a sandwich. Do this with all the paneer slices.
Now the batter has to be made. In a bowl – take gram flour, salt to taste, some pinches of turmeric powder, red chili powder, coriander and cumin seed powder, fresh chopped coriander leaves and water according to the required consistency. Make the batter’s consistency a pouring one.
Now dip the paneer made sandwiches slices into the batter. Flip them with a fork and make sure each corner touches the batter.
Take a pan and heat the oil for frying the pakodas. Drop the paneer slices once the oil is hot. Flip them once they turn little brown.
As you take them out drain the excess oil and immediately sprinkle chaat masala and serve with ketchup or any chutney you like.
This are best served with hot tea.
