Tomato Pasta – Cheesy Tomato Pasta

February 2, 2017 Bachelor Friendly RecipesBreakfast/DinnerKids BayPasta / Pizza Recipes  6 comments

I am a big fan of pasta & especially this Cheesy Tomato Pasta. There are many shapes of Pasta. I have tried many shapes and this Farfalle is my favourite. I usually make Tomato Pasta with homemade pasta sauce, but when not available I use tomato sauce and spice it up with seasoning just like I have done in the video. I should say this pasta tastes much better than the ones that we get in restaurants & pizza outlets. Especially here, it tastes totally bland.

September 16, 2016 Breakfast/DinnerDosa Corner  3 comments

Kambu is a millet variety, known as pearl millet in english and bajra in hindi. It has a very unique flavour and aroma by itself. As a child, I never used to like this Kambu Dosai. But now-a-days I love these kind of recipes. To my surprise Chotu also liked it. Unlike me, he is a good child 🙂 This Kambu Dosai does involve grinding/fermenting like the normal dosa. It is a much healthier option than the normal dosa.

Black Urad Dal Dosa – Karuppu Ulundu Dosai

February 21, 2016 Breakfast/DinnerDosa Corner  14 comments

Karuppu Ulundu Dosai is an added healthy twist to the normal dosa. It is made with black urad dal i.e urad dal with skin.

So I make this Karuppu Ulundu Dosai to sneak-peak black urad dal. It tastes almost the same as normal dosa. The only difference is again the colour, but it is manageable with him
