Chow Chow Chutney

January 19, 2015 Chow ChowChutney RecipesSide Dish for Idli/Dosa  4 comments

Chow Chow is called Chayote in Engish. I normally make kootu with it. Chotu is not a big fan of kootu varieties, so I end up making this Chow Chow Chutney to sneak peak this veggie. Its an easy and simple chutney and the good news is that no coconut is needed in this recipe. Pairs perfectly with idli/dosa.

September 5, 2014 CondimentsPodi/PowdersSide Dish for Idli/Dosa  3 comments

Ellu Milagai Podi or Sesame seeds gun powder is a great accompaniment with idli/dosa. I have already posted a Dosa Milagai Podi recipe earlier. This ellu milagai podi is a slight variation, with a nutty flavour and goodness of sesame seeds. Dosa Milagai Podi is Chotu’s favourite and as far as I have seen kids love it for idli/dosa. This Ellu Milagai Podi is a great method to sneak in some sesame seeds.

Brinjal Chutney – Kathirikkai Thuvayal

March 20, 2014 Aubergine/BrinjalChutney RecipesSide Dish for Idli/Dosa  10 comments

Brinjal, Eggplant, Kathirikkai is my hubby’s hereditary enemy. Unfortunately it is a favourite for me & Chotu. So I end up making dishes with brinjal only mostly when hubby eats outside.
