Aash/ Aush

Aash sometimes referred to as aush, is a varity of thick soup.

I saw this recipe on a TV show named "Lost recipe" but when I googled, I saw so mร ny recipes of aash which were totally different. 

Usually this recipe is made with tender mutton along with some basic spices and the key thing in this recipe there is that tadka is added 7 times at an interval of every 1 hour.

But as i am vegetarian I always try to make veg version. 

I made it with raw jack fruit and followed all the steps as needed. 

The recipe turned out to be so delicious.

As I mentioned there are so many recipes of aash but they are totally different from the recipe which I saw on TV, so I followed the recipe which I saw on TV.

As I have made this recipe with raw jack fruit so I gave a little change in this recipe and added the tadka at an interval of half an hour. 

The cashew nut paste and cream gives it nice creamy texture. 

I think in future I will make more recipes using Jack fruit but when I made this one, I felt so proud of myself ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š

Mini Aloo Cheela/ Potato Pancake

Aloo cheela is one of my favorite breakfast which is quite easy to make.  As only I am vegetarian in my family so mostly I prefer aloo cheela for myself. 

Cheela or chilla is an Indian version of a pancake which is made from various cereals or lentil flours.

I always add aloo or some grated vegetables in my cheela like carrots,  cabbage,  onions or spinach etc.

Today I made my aloo cheela  in mini uttapam pan which is quite easy to make and my mini aloo cheela has turned out to be super delicious. 

Potatoes are prepared in many ways: skin-on or peeled, whole or cut up, we can make it with any green vegetable or any leafy vegetable.  Also make it in various dishes like aloo dum, aloo chokha, aloo paratha, aloo ka halwa and aloo ka bharta etc.

Potato is a root vegetable and the English word potato comes from Spanish, Patata.
Potato are generally grown from seed potatoes.

Potatoes are packed with antioxidants compound that fight free radicals from causing damage to our cells.
