Hot & Spicy Pop Sickle!!!






Hot & Spicy Pop Sickle:

I still manage to bring some decent food, using only the basic gadgets at home(some are very primitive tho'). Yes, I prefer stone grinder over a blender for little things, I am the only Indian(atleast I think so') who never owned a pressure cooker!!! It has always been so easy for me trash and donate all the unwanted goods like (electric rice cooker, steamer, deep fryer, etc)considering the fact, that I will never use them! I do the same, when I visit my home...rearrange with only essentials!! Which really makes my Mom very mad(angry)!!!I dunno why, never been an electronic person!

Over the time, I have accumulated many kitchen tools, that is so unlike me! Like I discovered, untouched gadgets in my kitchen...electric mixer, coffee blender, immersion circulator (foam creator?), bullet mixie (used only once), food processor (simply untouched), marianation syringe, couple of thermometers...though I kept saying, I know how to take care of myself with basic essential goods, it happens to me too...shopped so much without any idea!!!

So, I also had this 'pop sickle mold' abandoned somewhere in my kitchen cupboard. Planned to fix something adult today, aaah don't get me wrong or anything, made some hot & spicy pop sickle, just to suit this lovely not-so-cold but yet 'breezy cold weather!!

Ingredients:

Tomatoes
Jalopenos
Cilantro
Salt to taste
Dash of Chaat masala.

Method:

Blend and puree everything together and fill them up in a pop-sickle mold, freeze.

Thaw them a little and enjoy:) Yes, I liked it:)

No pressure cooker? I cannot cook a complete dinner without it, especially for dal and meat dishes.
The spicy pops is such a cool idea :D

Spice said...

Dershana said...

Malar Gandhi said...

Ha ha...you got it, right Dershana:):)

Malar Gandhi said...

Dear Sayantani, Yasmeen, Spice

I use microwave for cooking rice, lentils, legumes, potatoes and stuff. Its pretty easy to clean and totally carefree. Better than presuure cooker...which are heavy to handle, loud and needs attention and cleaning gives me creeps.

So far, its never challenging...
