Congratulations Nisha for hitting it off with the Foodies in Pune. This goes on to show that its not exemplary plating which generates a sensation. Food when presented in the form of quiz can also be of great interest with the foodies. And you cracked this code pretty well !

Nisha has shared the recipe for her followers.


The name of the dish which generated so much sensation is TIBETAN VEG THENTUK


In her own words Nisha explains ....

One can very well customize the Tibetan Thentuk by using a variety of vegetables like capsicum, potato, broccoli, tomatoes, zucchini, spinach, mint leaves, corn etc. As per ones choice. Chop the vegetables into medium small pieces. Take 1 cup of Maida, add 1 teaspoon of salt, 1 teaspoon of oil, some water and knead it into soft dough. Once the dough is ready, keep it covered in an air tight jar for about 20 minutes. Now, take a big Kadai, pour some oil, add some ginger garlic paste, green chilly and onion, mix it well and sauté until the onions turn slight golden. Add all the cut vegetables and let it cook for about 2-3 minutes. Add some spring onion leaves/mint leaves and also pour ½ glass of water. Add sauces like green chilly/red chilli/soya sauce as per your taste, ½ teaspoon of vinegar and let it boil. Once boiling starts, make Chapattis of Maida, cut it into rectangular/square strips and elongate/stretch it and put it into boiling soup. Cook for 2-3 minutes. Thentuk is now ready to be served. If you are a non-vegetarian, add some neatly sliced chicken pieces also along with the vegetables.
