Monthly Blog Patrolling,a blog event by Coffee which is exciting and interesting and a very nice way to thank our fellow foodies by cooking one of their recipes.This time MBP's theme is finger foods.So i decided to try out Shaheen of Malabar spices 's Meat samosas.Thanks Shaheen for sharing this delicious recipe and other authentic kerala recipes like pathiri,puttu etc..i can go on n' on about her delicious recipes.There are only few number of blogs that are dedicated to share these authentic, traditional kerala recipes and i bet shaheen's is one of the top ones.On another note, her contribution to Daily tiffin is amazing and very helpful.
I had added one boiled potato to the meat filling for extra quantity, which didn't affect the taste.I had used store brought chinese vegetable roll pastry sheets.Here is how i made samosa wrappers.Working on one sheet at a time, fold it diagonally to make a triangle.Seal all the edges using your fingers dipped in water.Then again fold once, to form a triangel and seal the edges.Finally place a tbsp of filling in the sheet and again fold to form a trinagle.Make sure all the edges are closed properly.Deep fry them.
Tips: While working with these pastry, always cover them with damp paper towel to keep them from drying out.And cover prepared samosas also with damp paper towel before deep frying.
5 Things Most people Don't Know About Me
Saneepa had tagged me for this meme.First thanks to sandeepa for this, i enjoyed writing it.I am basically a very open person, like blah..blah..person.You will notice that when you first meet me :D.So i did my best to come up with five things that people don't know about me (people close to me know some of these things ).
1.I am crazy with my bedtime rituals.I am afraid of dark and i won't sleep on one end.Still i am sleeping on H on side and Lil' one's crib on other side.i need a small night light and radio on while going to sleep.thank god, h and lil' one got used to it.Now lil' one wakes up as soon as the radio is off...so we hear the news all night long.I say three prayers before going to bed which roughly takes about 20 minutes.I have a strong feeling that the next day won't be good if i don't say those prayers.
2.Whenever i am watching my fav. show on tv, watch with my mouth half open..(full open if the show is very interesting,particularly most of the L&O , CSI shows).I can't hear anybody calling me if i am infront of the tv.
3.I hate doing laundry.Especially folding clothes.Every week when my mom calls me, the first que. she asks me is "so did you do laundry this week?".she know how much i hate it.Nowadays H makes sure i do it once a week atleast..:)).
4.I go crazy if i can't find something.Crazy means very crazy..the whole house will be turned upside down..Especially the TV remotes and Lil' one is very good at hiding those.Today he had hidden H's watch, and deperately searching for it till now.He loves that tv ad (for an insurance company i guess) where a kid flushes her dad's watch and says "uh..oh..".If that's the case..:(((
5.Last but not least, i speak lil bit (?) loud..H complains that his hearing ability had gone considerably down during this 5 years of marriage.People close to me can find me by my voice in a big crowd..:)).Got even published in a malayalam newspaper called malayala manorama for screaming n' making halla for college election.Parents got know about it through uncle who saw the paper, but couldn't do anything to me except for calling me over the phone and yelling.'coz by the time it got published, i was long gone for engineering college..:))
