My Twisted Recipe – Papeta Par Eeda Cupcakes

I like to see the New Year, as a day that helps me dream up the future and ponder over my past. I think it is important to learn not only from my mistakes but also from the challenges that get to see my shining set of teeth smiling back at them.

How many times, have you heard someone tell you the past was shitty and tomorrow is going to be a better day? Note to ourselves, hasn’t the past made us who we are today? Should we not be stronger than who we were last year? Are we so blind that we are unwilling to see that we are, who we are? Loosened nuts and bolts and all of that.

I read a smart line in a very dumb book last year, it said “Life is beautiful, as long as you see it that way.” and if like me, you do not judge your book by its cover, you too will find the beautiful things that occurred this past year. Figure them out and boldly go where you have never been before.

Therefore today, to lead by example I am going where I should have gone before, to my own judgments and results from trials and errors, all with the same Bawi Bawarchi flair – The Twisted, Papeta Par Eeda Recipe that will blow the delish out of your taste buds and add some chub to your cheeks.. Can’t end it without saying it – Eat And Be Merry For Tomorrow Is  Definitely Another Day To Eat – Navroze Mubarak Everyone, Have a Happy New Year

Papeta par eeda

For Crust
– Sift the flour with the salt and add cubes of cold butter
– Using your fingertips lightly rub the butter into the flour until it  resembles breadcrumbs

For Potatoes
– Heat butter in a pan and add the onions and chilies till the onions lose their color
– Next add the potatoes and cook for till done and ready

-Roll the crust into circular rounds and place them in the cupcake baking tray and bake them blind

(Baking blind is a term used when you add weight to your baking dish. Simply wrap uncooked rice or beans in silver foil to add weight to the piecrust to prevent the pastry from rising)

– Bake in a preheated oven 350 degrees F for 10 – 15 minutes till it  resembles the shape of a cup
– Remove the foil covered rice and add the potatoes, then break an egg on the top and bake for 30 min

    Hi Yasmine, I am sure you can change the potato recipe as you please even a little coriander instead of cheese on the top will blend in just perfect..

    Do let me know if you try the recipe and how it turned out?

    The pastry is a basic short crust I learnt in baking school in Bombay a few years ago and I swear by the recipe, it has never let me down.

    The same pastry can also be used in a sweet pie all you need to do is replace the salt with some castor sugar. 🙂

    When you say “1 stick of cold hardened butter” – would you know the weight of the butter?

    • laishacooper March 26, 2013 at 9:16 AM Reply

      Hi 3T, 1 stick of butter = 4 ounces.
      4 ounces = 8 tablespoons approximately.
