Rice cooker chicken rice

Just now I noticed my baby blog crossed 1million excited...then how I will sit without sharing this news to you people....thank you thank you so much for the support. Being a lazy blogger I reached here ... it's really unbelievable....

To share this news I picked one simple recipe from my draft, this is the easiest rice (biriyani) recipe I ever made. When you feel so lazy and don't want to spend more time in kitchen do try this recipe. This one is my life saver recipe (it saved my time during my exam period), for this recipe you don't need to worry about how you cut the veggies, don't need to stir continuously but keep an eye on veggies while they cook.

¾ - 1 kg chicken (medium size pieces )
2 ½ cup biriyani rice (I used jeerakashala)
1/2  cup oil

a)       1 cinnamon stic
4 cardamoms (open the pod)
4 cloves
1 star anise
1 bay leave
b)         2 onion sliced
3 garlic cloves (big ize)chopped
1 inch ginger chopped
7 green chilli chopped
1 big size tomotto chopped
½ tsp garam masala powder
1 tsp pepper powder
mint leaves and coriander leaves
½ tsp lemon juice
salt to taste

1)    First switch on the rice cooker. Heat the cooker with oil (if you washed the pot before this then you need to heat your pot without adding anything)
2)   Once the oil heated open the lid and add the ingredients listed in a) section. Once the nice aroma spread add the ingredient listed in section b) exept mint leaves, coriander leaves and lemon juice.  Close the lid and cook for 6-8 minutes. In between you need stir and make sure the masala is not getting burnd.
3)    Add chicken pieces. Mix well and if needed add more salt (salt should be high because we are adding rice and water in it so the salt distribution should be equal in all). Now add ¾  cup water, close the lid and cook
4)    Once the chicken cooked in 80% add the water as your rice cooker instruction
5)    Now add washed and drained rice, leaves and lemon juice. Finally make sure the salt. Close the lid and cook. Once the rice cooker automatically switched off mix it well and serve

Banana semolina fritter

Overripe banana is a common problem in my house. What to do with this banana? This is the question I use to ask every weekend so my first preference goes banana cake, cookies… now I come up with another solution, yes this recipe. I loved when it came out as really tasty snack. Now I am addict to it J . Fortunately my son also loved it, though he is a picky eater.

2 overripe banana (Cavendish banana or 3 small banana)
1 cup semolina
¼ cup sugar
½ cup grated coconut
¼ tsp cooking soda
¼ tsp cardamom powder
pinch of salt
oil to fry

Mix all ingredient together except oil. Make soft dough (I am not sure should I call it as dough, it will be look like some what thick batter).
Heat oil in a pan.
Then take a small ball shape portion and drop it in hot oil.
Fry at medium low flame till it become golden brown color.
Repat the process till the dough finishes.
Have it with tea or coffee

Thank you for taking time

Your comment and suggestion will be my inspiration
