Pesarattu Dosa – Moong Dal Dosa

May 10, 2017 Breakfast/Dinner  No comments

PesarattuDosai_0555

Pesarattu Dosa is a very popular breakfast recipe from Andhra Pradesh. It is very healthy and nutritious as it is made from whole moong beans. I learned this recipe from a friend. I tried it for the 1st time and we all loved it. It is a very flavourful dosa variety. One more to the Dosa basket :) Unlike the normal Dosa we do not have to ferment this Pesarattu. The only planning to be done is to soak the moong beans the previous night or for 8-10 hours.

Rosemilk – With Homemade Rose Syrup

Rosemilk_0785

Rosemilk brings back a lot of childhood memories. We used to make Rosemilk with Roohafza syrup. Am not sure if that is still available in the market. Trust me, making Rose Syrup at home is not a big deal. Moreover it does not contain any preservatives, making it a much better option than the store bought ones. I made Rosemilk Popsicles earlier. U can make this Rosemilk and pour it in popsicle moulds and enjoy too. If u ask me, I would not be patient enough to let it freeze and would simply slurp it with a straw :)

CoconutRiceCurdRicePotatoBananaChips_0758

In the lunch menu series, this week its a very simple yet delicious South Indian Variety Rice menu. I made this during the weekdays to pack as a lunch. My favourite among variety rice is puliyodharai and curd rice is always a comfort food. I made a batch of raw banana chips as an evening snack, but most of it got over for lunch itself. So this added some crunchiness to the simple Variety Rice Menu. See below for other options of variety rice and side dishes.

Panagam or Panakam is a traditional drink made especially on Rama Navami. It is a Hindu festival celebrating the birth of Lord Rama. As Rama Navami falls on the 5th of April, thought of posting this traditional recipe. This is a child hood favourite. My grandma used to make this for her daily pooja as a prasad, especially during summer time. It is a perfect thirst quencher too. The addition of cardamom and ginger powder gives a divine taste to it.

I agree with you, the waiting time to let it freeze is really boring. But it’s worth the wait! So try it out. :)

StuffedBrinjalFry_0546

Brinjal is my all time favourite! I can eat brinjal in any form. This Stuffed Brinjal Fry is a simple and flavourful curry to go with rice or roti. The freshly ground masala does the magic here. Usually the stuffing will be made with peanuts and sesame seeds. Since am not a big fan of that combo, have changed the flavours according to our taste buds. If u are like me, try this combo. Have given the usual masala powder option in the tips.
