Recipe : How to cook Egg Roll

Swiss Roll recipe ~ a traditional, old fashioned tea time treat that is also served as a dessert. It is one those easy dessert recipes prepared with sponge cake. Swiss rolls are part of most Indian bakeries and a favorite among kids and adults alike. Nehal is very fond of jam filled swiss rolls and he asked me to bake them for his school snack. It is basically a sponge cake filled with a delicate layer of jam or any creamy filling like chocolate or strawberry buttercream or whipped cream. You can use any filling of your choice, even nutella and ganache.

I adapted the recipe from Sprinkle Bakes baking blog and Heather has included a cool video on how to bake, fill and roll the cake. Do watch it before you start making the swiss roll. Just follow the instructions to the T and you will have a pretty swiss roll in minutes. 🙂

Sweet Corn Chicken Soup

Sweet corn chicken soup is my most favorite Indo Chinese soup dish. When I eat Chinese at a restaurant, this heart warming chicken soup or sweet corn vegetable soup is always a part of our meal. One of the simplest soup recipes that can be made at home and I guarantee you that this soup will give any good Indian Chinese restaurant a run for its money. Seriously, its that good.

Basically one needs to follow three crucial steps while making this soup. These include the use of cream style corn, chicken stock and egg drop that gives the soup its wonderful texture. The soup has a sweet-salty flavor where shredded chicken is simmered in a sesame oil toasted chicken broth and cream style corn. I use white pepper powder to season my soup which lends a subtle hint of spice. You can also add finely chopped carrots and beans, thought its purely optional.

Kothimeera Atukulu ~ Coriander Poha

Poha aka beaten rice/flattened rice is a humble ingredient that graces many an Indian home cook’s pantry across the sub-continent. Basically it is dehusked rice that is flattened into flat light dry flakes that vary in thickness. The common Indian names given to beaten rice are poha, aval, avalakki and atukulu. It is versatile in terms of the numerous varieties one can prepare, be it savory or sweet dishes. It is much loved by mothers who look for quick kid tiffin recipes using poha. Few quick and easy poha dishes that I have blogged earlier include atukula upma and kanda pohe that make for a quick breakfast or evening snack and festival recipes like atukula payasam, atukula laddu and teepi (sweet) atukulu.
