Making Idli-Dosa Batter at home is a very common job that I do almost every week. I have been receiving a lot of requests for this recipe. Especially, after I made a round up post of 15 Chutney Varieties on Facebook, people went really wild with me!!

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. I normally prefer to make Ulutham Paruupu Satham with this karuppu ulundu, but it is quite difficult to trick Chotu because of the colour. 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

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 🙂

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.
