Masala Chaas

                                                                   Spicy Buttermilk is made in different ways in different parts of India.In south India especially in Tamilnadu we churn it with some chillies,curry leaves,coriander leaves,asafoetida and salt.It is made slightly different way in North India with black salt,cumin powder etc.I have tasted this in Rajdhani restaurant along with the meal.Being summer i thought let me try it at home today.It is a real welcome drink for the summer!!!!!!!!!

Masala Bread/Easy Bread Recipes

                                                                  I am posting some easy and quick recipes for the summer.It gets very hot in the evenings to go in to the kitchen and cook.I have seen this recipe but have not tried it before.I saw Venkatesh Bhat making Masala Toast with egg.He also mentioned the way to make without egg so i just followed the one without egg and made it.It is really simple and easy and a quick fix for anytime snack.HonestlyIt is a real treat to those who eat egg!!!you can even sprinkle some cheese on top!!!!!

Neer Dosai

                                                              I have not heard of Neer Dosai until recently.I have not tasted it in any restaurant or elsewhere.I tried it myself watching the recipe.Neer Dosai means Water Dosai it means that the batter is so watery that the dosas are really thin and lacy.
It is very popular in Karnataka and more in Manglore.It is easy to prepare and does not need any fermentation.I tried it and it tastes good and flavourful and goes well with sambar,chutney or onion and tomato gotsu.

Tomato Onion Gotsu/Chutney

                                         There are so many different types of chutneys and gravies you can make with these two vegetables(Tomato and Onion).The combination is so tasty that it goes well with all the south and North Indian breads and Rice as well.These are  the basic ingredients for making most of the north Indian gravies.However coming to this simple gotsu it is a perfect accompaniment for idlis and Dosas and it is very popular in Karnataka as an accompaniment for Neer Dosai.I watch this cookery show by venkatesh Bhat and he was making these two dishes and i thought of recording and blogging them.

Aloo Methi Paratha

                                                         Aloo Methi Paratha a little healthier version of the Aloo Paratha.I have tasted this Aloo Methi Paratha in Creme Centre Restaurant.It was very tasty and aromatic with the Methi leaves.Whenever i order the Indian platter i would go with this one which is usually served with Dal makhni,raita and pickle.I tried to copy the same menu at home today yes i made Aloo methi paratha,Dal makhni and of course some rice to with it.
