I have been seeing lots of very impressive dosa varieties being posted in many blogs. After googling for some dosa recipes , I decided to combine flour,oats and carrots to make a instant mixed dosa.It tasted good and was quite filling, at the same time very healthy too. I am sending this to Srivalli’s dosa mela and also to WBB#20- balanced breakfast hosted by Mansi.
This is something which is quite filling and can be had as a healthy drink with breakfast or a refreshing drink after you come back home from work in the evening. I made with the fruits available with me. You can add your choice of fruits and nuts.
I have never tried anything with sweet potatoes.These are widely available and eaten during the shivrathri in the month of feb or march. I was googling for a recipe with sweet potato and was surprised to find its culinary use all over the world. Sweet potato pie, cakes ….and indian food like gulab jamuns,koftas,kababs etc and many more.. Anyway, I decided to make simple stuffed paratha with them. It definitely tasted different.It had a sweet taste and by adding the regular spices,made it a little spicy too. And for the side dish I usually prefer curd for any parathas. But…
Kathirikai pitla , a cuisine from tamil nadu , is a nice side dish with rice and morkozhumbu( tamil version of kadi,though not exactly). But I just love it with simple rice and dal.
I wanted to make bread rolls since a very long time , but always thought it involved lot of work and so was very lazy to try them. I was scared of the edges not getting sealed properly and the stuffing falling out and creating a big mess. But I gave it a try and this was the result. This can be easily made for potlucks and get togethers. You can just prepare the bread and stuff them, keep them refrigerated and fry it when you want. I am sending this to Sia’s Ode to potato. Bread rolls are indeed…
Our native place is Tirunelveli , a beautiful place in Tamilnadu. It is located very near to kerala. So we have imbibed many cuisines of kerala, one of them being olan made with pumpkin. Olan can be a wonderful side dish with rice and sambar.This is how I make olan.
Tofu or soybeancurd is a highly nutritious food ,rich in protein and a good source of B vitamins, iron and calcium. It is low in saturated fats and contains no cholesterol. I personally did not find it as tasty as paneer,especially the last time when I made minced tofu (similar to paneer bhurji). This time , I fried them and added the required spices. It sure tasted quite good .It makes a good spicy side dish for chapatis.
I read in the internet (as well as many blogs) that cakes come out very beautiful using a microwave oven. Though it may not turn brown as in the convection oven , yet they are moist and spongy. And as most of the times the cakes are frosted , the browning really doesn’t matter much. So I thought of giving it a try. It did come out well. I liked the colour of the cake due to the carrots added , that I did not feel like decorating the cake in any other way.
I wanted to make something really quick and with whatever I had. So for the first time I made subji using microwave. This recipe is adapted from 100%microwave cooking though I made minor changes. It tasted nice. I did not have tomato puree, so used pizza sauce (which contained around 80% tomato puree and spices and herbs). Tomato puree must have tasted better. Serve with chapathi.
