Palak Kachodi and Kofta for the Krishna Janmashtami 2014

Last week was Shri Krishna Janmashtami

 so this year decked up the entrance with Krishna idol

 and prepared Lord Krishnas favorite dessert kheer 

.Since childhood festival means another excuse to indulge in delicacies like poori ,kachdodi.So for dinner thought of preparing Palak Kachodi and Kofta Curry. Had  heard about Palak Kachodi a lot but never tried at home .So this meal was prepared to get into the festive fervour after all festivals are something which bring break to the otherwise monotonous life.

For the Spinach Kachodi
whole wheat flour two cup
salt as per taste
carom seeds one tsp
red chili powder half tsp
garam masala powder one tsp
oil to cook
spinach leaves one bunch
remove the leaves from the stalk
chop and wash the leaves keep aside
boil water in a sauce pan and boil the leaves
drain the water and let the leaves cool
blend the leaves in a blender and keep aside
In a mixing bowl mix pureed spinach with flour
followed by salt ,carom seeds, red chili & garam masala powder
add water and knead to make a smooth dough
healt oil in wok for frying the pooris
divide the dough into equal sized discs
flatten each disc and roll out the shape of poori
once oil hot enough fry the pooris
drain on kitchen towel and keep aside.
that's all guys,will be sharing few more Krishna's Janmashtami pics in the next post
take care and happy blogging.
