Prepare the sugar coating by mixing the sugar and cinnamon powder. Roll the fried churros in the sugar mixture until well coated. Thought will start off with something very simple and came up with this open sandwich with a cheesy mushroom topping.

Cut the paneer pieces into bite sized pieces and keep aside. Heat the oil in a pan and roast the ingredients mentioned under Kolhapuri masala. The original recipe used brown rice, but I did not have brown rice, so used regular basmati rice instead.

This time however decided to spice it up a little more with flavours and got the idea from Tarla Dalal’s recipe.
Estimating a date of mixture of ancestral South Asian populations Linguistic and genetic studies have demonstrated that almost all groups in South Asia today descend from a mixture of two highly divergent populations: Ancestral North Indians (ANI) related to Central Asians, Middle Easterners and Europeans, and Ancestral South Indians (ASI) not related to any populations outside the Indian subcontinent.
ANI and ASI have been estimated to have diverged from a common ancestor as much as 60,000 years ago, but the date of the ANI-ASI mixture is unknown.
Here we analyze data from about 60 South Asian groups to estimate that major ANI-ASI mixture occurred 1,200-4,000 years ago.
Some mixture may also be olderâ€”beyond the time we can query using admixture linkage disequilibriumâ€”since it is universal throughout the subcontinent: present in every group speaking Indo-European or Dravidian languages, in all caste levels, and in primitive tribes.
During my holiday to Bombay this time, I visited this Spanish dessert joint with friends and tried out their speciality called Churros for the first time. Add the flour, sugar, oil and salt to the water when it is still hot and using a spoon mix it well until it forms a soft dough. Place this dough into the piping bag or the murku press (which is what I used) and press out the dough into the hot oil.
The first look of it reminded me of chakli/ muruku. In fact I enjoyed it so much that I could not resist trying to make it at home.
