Moong Dal Khichdi

July 20, 2017 Bachelor Friendly RecipesRice Varieties  3 comments

Moong Dal Khichdi is a recent favourite! I really loved it when we had it in a Rajasthani restaurant in Chennai. The flavours were subtle and the khichdi’s consistency was more like a porridge, making it just melt in the mouth. This one is quite different from the Dal Khichdi which is made from moong beans. Its a kids friendly recipe. Am in the look out for some one pot meal when I run out of time. This suits perfectly. All u need is to saute a few ingredients and cook it along with rice and moong dal. Thats it! Yummy and simple meal will be ready in no time! All the bachelors out there would find this very handy and useful 🙂

Bisi Bele Bath

June 21, 2017 Rice Varieties  2 comments

Bisi Bele Bath is a speciality of Karnataka. It is quite similar to our Sambar Sadham except for some changes in the masala! I so so love both the versions! Its such a breeze to make. U can have it with a simple papad as it is loaded with veggies and does not need any side dish as such. I prefer to make this on a weekend as we love to have it hot! And also the consistency is best when served hot & fresh.

Coconut Rice – South Indian Coconut Rice

February 9, 2017 Bachelor Friendly RecipesNavaratri SpecialRice Varieties  5 comments

Coconut Rice is a simple and yummy lunch box rice variety. It can be made in just 15 to 20 mins. Not much cooking skills are needed to make this. In the sense, it is perfect for bachelors. Am not a big fan of variety rice, but once in a while I like to have it. Puliyodharai is an exception though! Coconut Rice and potato fry is an unbeatable combo! In fact I would say it is the default combo at home 🙂 Finally not to forget that this Coconut Rice tastes very flavourful when made with freshly grated coconut.

Lemon Rice – Rice Varieties

Lemon Rice is a very common and popular South Indian rice variety. It is an easy and quick lunch box recipe. All u need is rice, lemon juice and tempering. I pretty much told the recipe here. Actually this is not a fancy recipe to be published here, but there are many beginners/bachelors who really need this. My favourite among these rice varieties is Puliyotharai especially with home made Pulikaichal. This Lemon Rice is good to go as is or divine with any potato sabji & papad/crisps.

I love Biryani, especially Paneer Biryani. It is a festive meal for almost all vegetarians. This Paneer Biryani is a simple one pot meal made in a pressure cooker. Unlike the normal Veg Biryani there is not much chopping work or grinding involved here. The only step that u have to plan ahead is to marinate the paneer. I usually make Biryani during weekends. It is an easy lunch box option to make during weekdays too.
