Hi, I tried this on Christmas with my bhabhi (she got it from some blog).. all my bhaiya's friends enjoyed this a lot, and it was realllly yum!! better than hara kababs someone had got from some restaurant!!

Recipe for Peanut Corn Vada -->

Raw peanuts - 200 gms (about a cup)
Corn kernels (fresh or tinned or frozen) - 200 gms
Fresh green chillies - 2-4, depending on chilli tolerance
Corn flour - 2 to 4 tbsp
Rice flour - 1/3 cup (optional)
Onion - 1 large, chopped
Coriander leaves - a handful
Curry leaves - a handful
Fennel seeds - 1 tsp
Cumin seeds - 1 tsp
Salt - as per taste
Oil to fry


1. Soak peanuts in water for half an hour. If corn is frozen, make sure it is thawed completely.

2. Then grind corn and peanuts coarsely along with the green chillies.

3. In the last run of the grinding, add the saunf (fennel) and jeera (cumin) seeds, onion, coriander and curry leaves, as well as the salt.

4. Grind the mixture using no or very little water. It has to be roughly the consistency that can be patted into a flat, round shape that won't come apart when you fry it - this is a bit of a hit-and-miss, but practice makes perfect.

5. To the ground mixture, add the corn flour and rice flour and mix well (add more flour if necessary, and adjust seasoning). If you have added too much water to your mixture while grinding, then you may need to add some extra flour to thicken the mixture - don't worry, you can't go wrong with the flour.

6. Take a small ball of the mixture (size of a plum) and flatten it on an oiled surface (your palm or a plate or whatever) to make a flat round disc of max 1 cm depth.

7. Meanwhile, heat the oil. When the oil is at the right temperature, drop the discs in slowly one by one. Fry till then are a dark golden brown, then drain - and then the best bit - eat hot. Note that because of the peanuts, the vada will be much darker than the normal vada.

These are the tastiest vadas I've ever had and it was difficult to stop at just one or two.

Iron-rich though these vadas are, thanks to the peanuts, they are not for the extreme diet-conscious. But once in a while, especially if it's a rainy cold day, they're awesome. Especially when had hot.

Starting bus srvice is just a single point which could help there are many more.

Cost factor for buses
Most schools have school buses which are free on sundays and saturday evenings. Employ them. Several other buses catering to office staff are available on holidays. So cost can be brought down. Though I said free before ,however if nominal fares are charged not many will crib because driving in cities is not a pleasure any more with traffic jams all around. With good eateries , some small indoor activities for children to keep them engaged while parent shop and may be a small 2 screen multiplex a retail supermart in outskirts of a city can be made a full family get away ,thus adding more fun to shopping.

a similar concept that has been working in my city (indore) since quite few years....

there's a store named pakeezah...its a store of clothes, kitchen accesories, jewellery etc..

there are few auto-rickshaws that are owned by pakeezah.. they stand at some of the happening/crowded localities, and they take u to the store free of cost in the afternoons. these are especially meant for ladies who usually find it easier to shop in afternoon when their husbands are out working...

pakeezah has one of the highest turnovers in indore..


The most important fact of multiplication of integers is called the Fundamental Theorem of Arithmetic. It says that every whole number greater than one can be written *uniquely* (except for their order) as the product of prime numbers. This is so important that we tailor our idea of what a prime number is to make it true. If 1 were a prime
number, this would be false, since, for example,

7 = 1*7
= 1*1*7
= 1*1*1*7 = ...,

and the uniqueness would fail.

Hey Noops.

I think the explanation is not completely satisfactory

By your logic, 0 is composite
Since 0 has all factors

Think it over


One is neither a prime nor a composite number. A prime number is one with exactly two positive divisors, itself and one. One has only one positive divisor. It cannot be written as a product of two factors, neither of which is itself, so one is also not composite. It falls
in a class of numbers called units. These are the numbers whose reciprocals are also whole numbers.

Zero is not a prime or a composite number either. Zero has an infinite number of divisors (any nonzero whole number divides zero). It cannot be written as a product of two factors, neither of which is itself, so zero is also not composite. It falls in a class of numbers called zero-divisors. These are numbers such that, when multiplied by some
nonzero number, the product is zero.

composite numbers are non-prime numbers.
P.S. 1 is neither prime nor composite.

QQAD version 2: Care to explain the highlighted part?


P.S: Sorry Aarav and Vineet.

A prime number is a whole number that only has two factors which are itself and one. A composite number has factors in addition to one and itself.
The numbers 0 and 1 are neither prime nor composite.

PS: I do not know what a composite number ..... will please some one help me out..... (if 31 is a composite no, the answer is d)

composite numbers are non-prime numbers.

P.S. 1 is neither prime nor composite.

You must be kidding. Don't tell me there is a Harry Potter movie with a A rating.

I was asking about the book. 2 different books sell - Harry Potter adults book and childrens book. Are horcruxes described in detail in children's books also. I thought JKR was going overboard with horcruxes funda about needing to kill someone to break a piece of your sould to put in an object to gain immortality. Not an idea I would be too comfortable putting into the young impressionable heads of children.

There is no difference between the content of the books, only the covers are different. The adult covers appeal to older readers.

Another HP Fan on board
