Kadalai Paruppu Pooranam – For Mothagam

August 29, 2016 Pillayar Chathurthi Recipes  7 comments

Kadalai Paruppu Pooranam is the most common stuffing used for making Mothagam. Last year I had posted Mothagam with coconut and jaggery stuffing. This is with chana dal, coconut and jaggery. My most favourite. My mom usually makes some extra for me, as I love eating this stuffing as is without even being stuffed in a Mothagam. I am just making this as a separate post for easy reference. Mothagam with this stuffing is coming next. I have tried with a mothagam mould. So stay tuned for those cute little mothagams!!

August 15, 2016 Potato RecipesRice Varieties  No comments

Biryani is always a breeze to make. We love one pot meals, especially during travel or for those busy days. This Baby Potato Biryani is a flavourful biryani with baby potatoes. I saw this recipe in a cook book and made a few changes to suit our taste buds. This is yet another biryani made easily in a pressure cooker. All u need to do is marinate the baby potatoes and then the rest of the procedure can be done quickly. Baby potatoes are always a favourite and will be in my shopping list! I simply love the cuteness of the tiny potatoes.
