Badam Kheer/Almond Kheer

Badam Kheer is a very easy and  rich payasam or kheer made with almond paste and milk.I make this often especially during navrathri. i make a lot to give people when they come home.
My mother also used to make it in bulk and store in the refrigerator during navrathri(i do the same).It is one of the tasty payasam that i like.I like it cold and hot, it tastes very good both ways.It is perfect drink to offer during festivals.

Rawa idli/Rava Idli/Rave Idli

Rawa Idli is a variation of the normal idlis.They are  made with rawa or sooji.It originated from the MTR restaurant in Banglore.It is popular dish in Karnataka and served in all the udipi restaurants.It is served with Potato Sagu and Coriander and coconut chutney.

Even today it is popular in Banglore and rest of Karnataka.I always make a visit to the MTR restaurant whenever i go to Banglore.My kids also love Rawa idli and we have it once in a while for dinner.I sometimes buy the ready made mix from MTR and make rawa idlis.But any day the idlis made at home are very soft and tasty.

Bhatura or Bhature Recipe

                                                        Bhatura or Bhature is a deep fried Indian bread very popular in north India and especially in Punjab.It is very similar to poori which is made with wheat flour but the bhaturas are made with Maida(refined fllour).
It is usually served with Channa masala or Chole,some Sliced onions and lemon wedges.It is a very tasty dish and Most kids would love it.In restaurants they make a plate size Large Poori but at home people make half the size of it.
When we were in college chole bhatura used to be our first choice of order in the canteen and i am making this after a very long time so hoping to enjoy the bhatures with chole this evening.....
