Kuska|Plain Biriyani|How to make restaurant style plain biriyani?

Kuska or Plain Biriyani recipe with step by step images.

Kuska or Plain Biriyani has always been my favourite ever since I had it in my college canteens and during my friends’ weddings.Being a pure vegetarian this would only be the option for me to choose in a lavish non-vegetarian menu.Mom doesn’t make this as it bit too spicy than the usual level we use at home. My sister was the one who first tried a kuska recipe from here during our last vacation and from then I got glued to it.I just tweaked a bit to adjust to family’s taste and now this has become one of my standard recipes.You can make it with even plain rice or basmati or seeraga samba.Hubby loves it when made with seeraga samba.

Methi Matar Malai recipe with step by step images and recipe.

Methi Matar Malai-I recently tasted this in a restaurant.I was so doubtful about how methi leaves would taste with cream.But to my surprise, it was really yum and I found that they had included Kasturi methi.Last weekend hubby wasn’t at home and I had to cook for only two people who love creamy dishes(Yeah me & my boy). Methi Matar Malai got done in a just few minutes and we both loved it and had it twice.You can use fresh methi leaves too in this recipe and try.

Baked Potato Wedges with step by step recipe & images-Can be made on tawa too.

My son is finishing his first year at school and his institution is having a small party for kids.Parents were asked to send some simple party snacks and my friend Gouthami suggested this Baked Potato Wedges recipe from her blog last evening.She also suggested me to make the preparation works at night so that I can just bake /toast on a tawa today morning. I gave small tweaks to her recipe and made everything ready last night.I was so scared because I had failed twice before in baking gobi and potatoes but today baked potato wedges turned out to be a super hit.I am saving this recipe for all my further attempts.The colour , texture , taste ,flavour of baked potato wedges was so perfect and super yummy. And an additional good thing about this recipe is you make it by just shallow frying in a tawa too. Come let’s see the recipe while I keep waiting for my son to get back with his feedback.
