Adai Upma – Upma with Adai Batter

September 21, 2015 Breakfast/Dinner  12 comments

Adai Upma is an easy breakfast/dinner recipe. I simply love this Adai Upma, when compared to other upmas like Aval Upma or Semiya Upma!! Whenever I make Adai , we prefer to have it for 1 or 2 servings only. After that I make this Upma which we enjoy much better than Adai. It also serves as a good use of the leftover batter. Once u try this recipe, u will prefer to reserve a portion of adai batter to make this from next time 🙂

Palak Poori

September 25, 2014 Breakfast/DinnerKids BayLunch Box MenuRoti/Paratha  7 comments

Poori and tomato thokku has always been my favourite combo since childhood. This Palak Poori is a slight twist to the normal poori. Its a very good method to sneak-peek some spinach for kids who are fussy about it. This does not require any side dish as such, just goes well with any pickle or simple raita. You can serve it for breakfast/dinner or pack it for kids lunch. Am sure kids would love the green color Palak Poori.
