CHANNA CHAT/ALOO CHOLAY

Assalam o alaikum everyone:)
Long time and no posts,i apologize.Since i got back from my vacations, life has been very hectic.Its been close to impossible to update the blog.but now that i a am free ,how about one of my all time fav dishes....
street food in Pakistan is just incredible.All the aromas and flavors are such a delight for some one like me(i am a self proclaimed street food addict).But the one treat that i always like to have on a trip to a food stall is Channa chat :)

Sorry for the inconvenience people :) Be back in a month. Till than browse through these wonderful recipes.I am not a trained cook.I have learned pretty much everything from my mom (like most of you).So do let me know how the recipes turn out for you.Any questions, suggestions are most welcome:)Comments are on "moderation" so if you comment and it doesnt automatically show up, dont worry.I am accessing the blog from my cell currently (lack of reliable internet) so it may take me some time to "approve" & answer the comments.
And PLEASE "follow" if you like the blog. I can always use more encouragement :)

CHICKEN CROQUETTES:

When masala tv started broadcasting, it changed the whole concept of the food industry in Pakistan,It basically gave access to someone sitting at home , who had no idea about cooking , a "how to" manual about anything and everything food related.Nothing was off limits any more.I swear, no where in the world has chicken been cooked in so many different ways ;)

PAKORA 101

When i was in middle school i was a very chubby kid.In fact my nickname was "moti" (or fatso).... ;)I hated that nickname with a vengeance but i couldn't do much about it as i loved to eat(and also i had not yet been introduced to the concept of starving my self to death in the name of dieting).In time i lost most of my baby fat and Allah gifted me with a metabolism that is too fast for my weight to catch up:) But my love for food is still there in all its glory.I am a junk food addict (literally). I can eat from food stalls on my street for the rest of my life and not complain.
 
My mom is a great cook(as all Pakistani moms are). I always wanted to cook like her but for some reason i could never get quiet the flavor profile that she has in her food. Pakora's are the first thing i learned to cook exactly like her.So i am really proud of this recipe.

Pancake Rolls:



One day i was just channel surfing (b/c i was bored out of my mind) & i came across this chef who was making these rolls.The problem was that he was speaking Punjabi(& the only Punjabi i speak or understand is limited to the phrase"Aae shadi nai ho sakdi oye!!!").So the first time i attempted to make these,it was more or less from visual memory than from any real understanding of what the chef was trying to teach:)Suffice it to say , i failed miserably.Since than i have tweaked the recipe quite a bit.Now at least it is edible & presentable(lolz).
