Sweets and snacks form a part of every Indian celebration. There is a clear distinction between north and south Indian snacks & sweets. Yet there are many popular dishes widely accepted across the country. Here I provide some simple tips to make your traditional snacks and sweets a little more delicious.
While preparing chilli baji – Split the chilli to two and fill inside a little tomato sauce. Then dip in green gram batter and deep fry in hot oil. They taste better.
While preparing jilebis – While preparing jilebis using black gram batter, prepare jilebis as soon as you grind gram. Otherwise they turn a bit sour after preparation.
While preparing Athirasam – Add two dates along with bananas while preparing athirasam. They taste better.
While preparing ice cream – If cream has separated during preparation, once it cools blend well in a mixer.
While preparing mixture – Add a pinch of sugar to gram batter used for the preparation of batter. Your mixture tastes better.
While preparing Gulab Jamun – While preparing dough for Gulab Jamun add a little butter to make your jamuns soft.
While preparing cakes and pudding – While caramelizing sugar for cakes and pudding, add 3 or 4 drops of lemon juice. Sugar never changes its colour to black.
While preparing Uzhunnu Vada (Medu Vada) – Allow the prepared batter to ferment well. Then only your vadas turns crispier. You can add a spoon of curd to make your vadas soft. You can also mix the batter well instead, till its volume increases, and also add a little dosa batter (brought into room temperature).
While preparing bread bajis – Apply a little curd on the surface of bread pieces before frying. They absorb only less amount of oil.
