Pindi Chole/Pindi Channa

                                                               I have tasted this Pindi chole when i was little and i used to wonder why this channa is so different in colour and where the colour came from????Later when i started cooking i learnt from my North Indian friends that they put Tea leaves or Tea bags while boiling the channa.
Anyway it used to be very different from the normal channa i did not even realise it is made differently and callled different.Now i have started making with Bhaturas!!!!!
I like the tangy taste in this channa and it is best suitable for Bhaturas!!!It is a little dry so it can be had like a snack or a sundal along with some chopped onions and lemon juice.

Chili Bajji/Stuffed Mirchi Bajji

                                                        Mirchi or Chilli Bajji is a popular  Indian Fried snack. It is an ideal snack on a rainy day with a cup of Masala Chai(Tea).I have tried this Bajji with a stuffing of potato and a little bit of Paneer. You can create stuffing as per your taste and liking. It came out good and tasted great.

Banana Milkshake

                                                                There is no better or  tastier way to make the kids eat Bananas.Especially when it is really ripe, no one will touch it in my house. I will just chop and put them in a mixer and make a tasty milkshake with a dollop of ice cream in it and a few decorations on top and even before you realize, the bananas are over. A healthy and effective start to the day !

Garlic Rasam/Poondu Rasam

                                                            Garlic rasam is one of my favourite rasam.My mother used to make it once a week especially on Sundays when everyone is at home more for its medicinal values.
It helps in digestion,cough cold etc.sometimes she just used to add some boiled garlic to the normal paruppu rasam.My aunt(athai) is a specialist in making this  Garlic rasam.She used to make it with two other spices "kandathippili" and "Arisithippili".She used to make it really spicy and mix it with some mashed rice and ghee and make us drink in our empty stomach so that we feel really hungry for  sunday feast!!!!!

                                                              Now it is plenty of Red Tomatoes everywhere i wanted to make this kozhambu.All of us in our family, my aunts and uncles are fond of Tomatoes and we have an extra doze of tomatoes in all the dishes.My aunt makes this vathakozhambu with tomatoes.It brings down the spice of the vathakozhambu and it is very tasty.It is a variation from the normal vathakozhambu and a treat to those who love tomatoes.

Gobi Kaju Masala/Cauliflower and cashewnut Masala

                                                                   Cauliflower is one of our favourite vegetable.Now because of its availability it is very fresh and good.It is a very good choice for making north Indian gravies and subzis to go with all types of Indian breads.I am sure the north Indians make a hell lot of them.I have tried a few and few south Indian gravies and subzis and Cauliflower "Sadam".
I have eaten this subzi in a restuarant it was called gobi kaju mawa curry.Cauliflower and cashewnuts in a rich cahew gravy and mawa or milk fat added to to it.I have tried to make a simpler version of that.You can add some creme or mawa to the gravy at the stage when you add curd.

Instant Ragi Dosa Recipe

                                                                  I have always included ragi flour in my chapathi flour(wheat flour)to make chapthis daily and tried the ragi kanji sometimes but i have not tried any other recipe.I have just started making  dosas with ragi flour.Considering its health benefits i include ragi in my dishes and make things out of ragi flour.
Ragi dosa is a easy to make and it tastes best when eaten hot.It takes a little longer to cook than the normal dosa.You can add a few tbs of ragi flour to our normal dosa dough and make dosa too.Include ragi flour in your dosa and chapathi dough and enjoy its helath benefits.
