I love undhiyu and first followed Nupur's recipe - and blogged about it a while ago. It truly is a labor of love and the flavors of the different vegetables and the methi dumplings are phenomenal. However, wanting a quick fix solution that will allow us to indulge in this curry on a weekday, I devised this shortcut method of using a combination of frozen foods and some fresh vegetables and this doesn't disappoint. This is in no way a traditional way of making this curry but it satisfies my undhiu cravings fabulously and enables us to have it more frequently.You can change the veggies around to your preference. I use the Bhagwati brand Methi Gota (frozen) - see picture below for the Undhiyu recipe and also to make Kadhi Pakodi effortlessly and it has a great flavor and all it needs is some heating up in the toaster oven. SHORTCUT UNDHIYU Ingredients: Methi Gota - half pack, frozen Potatoes - 2, small to medium Surti Papdi Lilva -  1 pack frozen Carrots - 2 (or use 1 small sweet potato) Suran (yam) or Raw banana - half cup (optional)- cubed Oil - 1 tbsp Sugar - 1/4 tsp  ( to maintain green colour of curry) Salt - to taste Lemon juice - about half tbsp To grind to a coarse green  paste: Shredded Coconut - half cup, loosely packed Green Chillies - 5 to 6 Garlic cloves - 3 to 4 Ginger - 1.5 inch piece Cumin seeds - 1 tsp Coriander leaves - half bunch, (stalks and leaves, ends trimmed) Method: 1) Pressure cook (in separate pans) the surti papdi lilva, yam & sweet potato (if using) and potatoes. Peel potatoes, cut into big cubes and set aside 2) Cut carrots into small rounds. microwave or parboil with a bit of water for about 5 minute. 3) Cook the frozen methi gota in a toaster oven for about 10 minutes (or follow package directions). Cut each into half.   4) Heat oil in a wide pan, add the veggies and continue to saute for a few mins.  Add about half cup water to this mixture with some salt, sugar and the ground green paste.  Cover and allow to cook on medium-low flame. 5) Once the water has evaporated, stir in the methi gota and continue cooking for about 10-15 minutes more with occasional stirring. 6) Finally switch off the stove and stir in the lemon juice.  Delicious with rotis.

  • The Saffron Vanilla Snickerdoodle Cookies sold at Blue Bottle Coffee are a favorite of mine. I like to sit in the sun on the beautiful stone slab benches across from the Blue Bottle Coffee kiosk in Hayes Valley, San Francisco with a macchiato a snickerdoodle to share. This, the first Blue Bottle Coffee location, is just a short walk from my house in an alleyway. A not-so-secret spot, slightly off the main strip – source of excellent coffee and cookies! I also love to have lazy breakfasts beneath the tall ceilings, light streaking through the massive windows, in their cafe at Mint Plaza. I’ve known there was a Blue Bottle Coffee book in the works, and each time I go, I find myself uttering the same nine words, usually with my mouth full – I really hope this recipe is in the book. In addition to their coffee, which I’m more than happy to brave a line for, I have a list of go-to favorites from their beautifully concise and inspired menu. My hope was that all would be in the book: these Saffron-Vanilla Snickerdoodles, the Pickled Fennel Egg Salad, the Sesame Absinthe Cigars, and Catalan Eggs with Braised Greens. Check, check, check, and check! Every one is in the book. And like all things Blue Bottle, this is worth the wait. The Best Snickerdoodle Cookies The book will be released October 9th (I originally posted this in 2012), but I’ve been hassling Ten Speed to get me an early copy for months. In part because I wanted to bump up my coffee know-how, but (no surprise) I was particularly excited about the recipes – the Saffron Vanilla Snickerdoodle Cookies were first up. In contrast to traditional snickerdoodles, Caitlin describes them as having “an unusual butterscotch flavor from the combination of saffron, brown sugar and vanilla.” If you love snickerdoodles, please try these! Now, I know these cookies well, and this recipe delivered a version that is a dead-ringer of the original. The same as the ones I would buy at the kiosk – buckle in the middle, kiss of saffron, a thin golden crust that gives way to a fudge-textured center. Thank you. Arguably the best snickerdoodle cookies I’ve ever had. I made a double batch for a family trip to Lake Tahoe last week – baking half for the drive there, freezing the remaining pre-scooped dough to bake at the cabin. Everyone loved them. I hope you like these as much as I do, make a double batch and freeze half of the pre-scooped dough for later baking. And be sure to measure the saffron carefully -it’s easy to go too light/heavy. xo -h Continue reading Saffron Vanilla Snickerdoodle Cookies on 101 Cookbooks
