A very late Happy New Year to all of u. Its been a long time since I disappeared from here. Sorry about that. Hope u all had a good start to the new year. This recipe is about Red Rice Adai. A healthy mix of red rice and lentils. It is a very simple recipe to make. All u need to plan is the soaking time. No fermentation required. Can be used immediately. Adai is a favourite at home. I usually make another dosa/adai variety (batter) handy to cope the busy weekdays along with the Idli/Dosa batter. It also adds a variety to the normal boring dosa!

April 26, 2018 Breakfast/DinnerDosa Corner  No comments

Adai is always welcome at home. This Godhuma Rava Adai is fully packed with fibre and protein. We are not using rice in this recipe. I always find it as an easy option too, as it is a quick fix recipe for breakfast or dinner. All u need to plan is the soaking time. Usually it is made with rice, chana dal & toor dal. But I add what all lentils is available in hand and make it as a Multi Grain Adai. So thought of sharing it as a post here πŸ™‚ Wheat Rava/Godhuma Rava/Dalia however u call it, is the HERO of this recipe. It is a totally guilt free adai and keeps us full too.

Aloo Poori – Potato Poori

December 23, 2017 Breakfast/DinnerKids Bay  2 comments

Aloo Poori is a delicious poori flavoured with potato and spices. The golden colour of this poori is really very attractive for kids. It is a good method to get the hidden benefits of the veggie for those totally fussy kids. Poori is always my favourite since childhood. Poori & tomato thokku is my most wanted combo. This would be my standard demand on my birthday’s! πŸ™‚ I served this Aloo Poori too with the same thakkali thokku, though this can be had without a side dish as it is fully flavoured.

Here is t...

Rava Dosa – Instant Rava Dosa

July 12, 2017 Breakfast/DinnerDosa Corner  6 comments

Rava Dosa had been in my to-do list since a long time. I usually make it for dinner, so could not click the pics due to poor lighting. As its summer now and the day light is extended until 10 pm, its comfortable to click pics even when I make it for dinner. The trick of making the perfect crispy & lacy Rava Dosa lies in the correct batter consistency. Have shared a video as well as tips to get it right. I have made it as a plain one. U can make it as onion rava too. The best combo for this would be coconut chutney.
