Ragi Pakoda – Finger Millet Pakoda

August 19, 2015 Snacks / Starters  11 comments

Pakoda is an addictive snack, especially on a rainy day it is divine to munch with a hot cup of coffee. This Ragi Pakoda is a healthier version made with ragi flour/finger millet flour. I already have a few pakoda recipes posted earlier. This Ragi Pakoda was a super hit like the other pakodas as well. Chotu did not like the look of it, but after tasting he just loved it. So if u are like him, do not underestimate this pakoda by its looks!!

Tomato Gotsu – Thakkali Gotsu

August 12, 2015 Kuzhambu/Rasam VarietiesSide Dish for Idli/Dosa  11 comments

Tomato Gotsu or Thakkali Gotsu is an excellent side dish for idli/dosa. It is a very easy and quick fix sambar kind of side dish. When u run out of time, this can be made very quickly without much preparation work. Chotu is a big fan of hot, crispy dosa and sambar. I mostly make this tiffin sambar or this tiffin sambar. This Tomato Gotsu is a nice variation to it. Chotu calls this tomato sambar.

This pairs equally well with Ven Pongal too..

Now to the recipe...
