Day 3:

Gold!!??..You heard it right.I first thought what do I name it.Then I thought in India, Gold is one treasure which is common all across all states-NEWS and is the most precious during all happy occasions and of course impresses every Heart and also is a life-saver in times of need.

Now how did I find it in my kitchen?!!…Think of that one thing which is common and loved by all in our kitchens-NEWS, is the only life saver even in the most remote parts of India…Yes u guessed it right! It is our very own POTATO! :D……the Gold in my kitchen :)….

My art of camouflaging it is as follows…



Maida – 1 cup

Pinch of salt

2 spoons of yeast

baking soda



Potato or Alu (that/s the pet name ;)…)

green chillis

Mustard seeds



2 teaspoons of Oil

Stages of Art:

Mix all the ingredients mentioned to make a tight dough.Knead it until your hands fall down tired ..:D….Just kidding…But do knead it well and keep aside.

Bake 4 Medium sized potatoes in the micro oven  for 5 minutes until it is soft.Peel n smash them well

Prepare a thadka with oil-mustard seeds-hing-green chillies-haldi. Add the smashed potatoes and a little salt to taste.

Flatten a small part of the dough as shown in the pic and stuff it with a spoon of the alu mix.Seal it well and place it on a baking plate.

Preheat the oven for 10 minutes and then bake the little treasures on your baking plate at 380 Deg Celsius for 25 minutes.

Voila! Your camouflaged treasure is ready to be savored as an evening snack with a hot cup of masala tea with your loved ones !

Enjoy your evening folks….:)….Image
