It’s so wonderful to have visitors to Indian Food Kitchen submitting various recipes. Unfortunately my work has kept me from posting many of these and others from my mom’s Kitchen. I’ll promise to be more regular and some more surprises also await in the near future By the way, if you are on Facebook, join Indian food Kitchen over there and you can meet a lot of foodies.
Ok, back to the main topic, Beula from faraway New Zealand has contributed this recipe for Chicken 65, a popular appetizer / starter / non-veg snack, which surprisingly many Indian restaurants seem to have forgotten these days.
Many thanks to Beula for sharing the recipe for this popular dish. India seems to be a chicken crazy nation (food wise, that is) and this dish sure is a non-vegetarian delicacy. Enjoy and do post your comments below.
Recenlty my cousin was on a trip to Bhuj in Gujarat and was remarking how everything tasted sweet there. I recently tasted a Gujarati dish called Handva which was a baked dish garnished with sesame seeds. This isusually served as a snack in Gujarati cuisine.

I’ve posted a video (courtesy – Show me the Curry) here. Try this and let us know the results.
Note: I’m not the author of this video. I’ve just posted it here for spreading the word on Indian cuisine. The video is about 9 minutes long and may take some time if your internet connection is slow.
Long time no see! I have been having problems with the blog with some spammer / hacker freezing things around. I finally seem to have sorted out that problem by upgrading to the latest version of wordpress.
Ok, that aside, I wanted to search for more recipes to add to the eggless cakes collection. Previously I had posted delicious eggless pineapple cake video from Manjula aunty. This time, the lady-duo from Show me the Curry have created a cake delicacy with dates and walnuts. This can make for a good tea time snack or maybe a weekend try.
Note: This video is not produced by me; I have only shared it with permission from the original authors. The video is about 8 minutes long. If you are on a slow connection, press the play button / pause and let the video load for some time.
Bhagi Atma from Bangalore submitted this recipe for Mysore Set Dosa. Unique to Karnataka, ‘Set Dosa’ is called so because it is usually served in a set of 3 dosas. You can find them in most restaurants and ‘darshinis’ around Karnataka.

Got some leftover Idlis from yesterday or from today morning’s breakfast or for a snack? Then why not make a tasty dish out of it? It’s called Idimas. Though I’m not certain where this name comes from, my granny used to call by this name; mostly I think it is popularly known in Tamil Nadu or other South Indian states. It also goes by the name of Idli Uppuma (Tamil ) or Idli Uppittu (in Kannada).
You can either use left over Idlis or even make fresh Idlis for this purpose. There is a recipe for making Idli
