Akkaravadisal

                                                               Akkaravadisal is a popular Iyengar sweet.You must have tasted it in a lot of vaishnav temples as prasadam.It is similar to sarkarai pongal except that it is cooked in water for sarkarai pongal whereas the Rice and Dal are cooked in milk for Akkaravadisal.In the original recipe, it is sweetened with Jaggery while I have used Sugar. You can use either one.

Payatham Paruppu Payasam

                                                                           Payatham Paruppu or Paasi Paruppu payasam(yellow Moong dal) is the easiest paruppu payasam to make.Today being Friday of Tamil Aadi Masam I made this Payasam. My daughter loves payasam with Jaggery.This payasam is made in most of the festivals at home.It is also called "Payatham Kanji"and made on fasting days especially on sivarathri.(while  making payatham kanji ususally they do not add cardamom powder)
I have added milk to this payasam you can either add milk or coconut milk to it.If you are adding coconut milk do not heat it too much after adding the coconut milk.

Baked Curry Puffs

                                                       "Baked Curry Puff "- You can call it a Puff, Calzone or Empanadas. It is bread dough with a filling of your choice. I made potato and peas curry for the stuffing, but you can use your imagination and make stuffing with paneer,peas or mixed vegetable.
Whatever be the stuffing it is a real treat for the children.It could be a perfect children's party snack too.You could prepare the filling and the dough keep it ready and just bake it when the party begins and enjoy the hot and fresh puffs.
