Onion Samosa is one the recipes I wanted to try for a long time.Normally a potato filled samosa which is also called Punjabi Style Samosa would be the thing I try for weekend snacks.This was a new thing to me, but I have seen this in trains where vendors would be selling and also in school canteens and theaters.I always am scary when it comes to making samosas.Because the pastry dough should be soft and moist and not dry.Also the dough should be kneaded to the right consistency and the samosa should be golden brown. In spite of all the…

 I never had a sweet tooth, but have always awed at my mom who used to make sweets and savories with much ease.In my growing years in New Delhi,when kitchen was almost unknown to me,every now and then a new delicacy would pop up and surprise us.This is one such traditional recipe which my mother made and that too in no time.I have also seen my grandma who used to sit painstakingly near the stove to make these deep fried dumplings. As I had this post long pending in my draft,i thought of posting this today.Children nowadays have a liking of desserts like doughnuts,cakes and pastries,but have you ever thought that in our Indian Cuisine there are innumerable desserts that you might have not even heard of.This Karjikai is a sweet made with maida dough which is rolled as a chapati and filled with sweet filling of coconut,roasted gram and sugar.As you can see it is in the shape of semi circle.Besides making this sweet for Diwali,people also make this for Ganesh Chaturthi.But you can make this at any time of the year to treat your loved ones,right?Over to this sweet recipe of Karjikai.
