♥She deserved it! ♥ I am a Celebrity's daughter ;)

My mom, Susy Mathew a caterer for the past 10 years was featured on a Travelogue by Surya Tv on 12.09.09 The video's are in our regional language, Malayalam. She demonstrated two recipes:
1.Stuffed Bun (recipe follows)
This has been a favourite with all who ever got a taste of it! Super easy and highly satisfying!!

2.Potato Tikki(recipe follows)
These small golden balls are filled with an unusual filling, but trust me , they just melt in your mouth. Try to serve them hot! A perfect starter!

Hi Ria,

Commenting for the first time. I saw that episode on Surya TV, great recipes and today you were on Surya TV's Taste Time, right? Great job.
Congratulations to both of you.


Maria said...

Hey, I made this stuffed bun other day. It came out so well, it looked like a store bought bun and the texture was amazing. I was so happy with it. Please convey my special thanks to your mom.


Sne said...

Made these for the fourth time yesterday but the chicken mix came out bland, not sure what I did wrong. The last times I made it with an egg mix. Also, for some reason, all 4 times I had to use an extra 1/2 cup of flour but no biggie.
Either way I love it and so does my husband and 17 month old daughter so this recipe will be saved.
Thanks Ria for these recipes!
