Hi! Wish you all a ‘Very Happy Valentines Day’.
Today I’m here to share a recipe which I had heard from my dear friend Anu ages back when we studied together and she was all gaga about this preparation which her elder sister would make for her. Every time she mentioned this preparation my mouth would water and I would crave for it, the only thing that I remembered clearly about it was that it had peanuts. Somehow I never asked her to tell me the recipe until recently and this time I wrote it down and after I finished writing my first expression was ‘is that all, only a few ingredients in it’.
A few days back I made the preparation and gave it to my kids in their lunch box and I must tell you it was a hit as both of them came back and asked me what it was, as it tasted very nice. Thanks Anu for sharing such a wonderful preparation with me and many thanks to Aparna didi for innovating this recipe.
This time I made the preparation in the exact fashion but I realised that that many more innovations can be done with it which I will surely try. This preparation can be an excellent starter or an evening snack for kids. Do not go by it’s colour, it surely tastes awesome .
7-8 slices whole wheat bread
1 cup roasted and pounded peanuts
2 tsp. soy sauce
4-5 green chillies finely chopped
salt to taste
1 tsp. white pepper
For Corn Starch Mix
4 tbsp. corn starch + 1/4 cup water and a pinch of salt
Take milk in a pan and bring it to a boil, add chopped chillies and bread and with a wooden ladle keep mixing, the bread will soak milk and turn mushy. Add the soy sauce, salt to taste, peanuts and white pepper and mix thoroughly.
Grease a square plate and spread the bread-peanut mix evenly and refrigerate for half an hour. Cut into square pieces, dip in corn flour mix and roll in bread crumbs then deep fry or shallow fry. Remove on a kitchen towel and serve with tomato sauce.
