Starting your Sunday morning or any morning with dosas just off the tawa, sounds like a great idea. But want to try making a different kind of dosa? So here it is, cucumber neer dosa or southekayi neer dosa. Lacy, soft cucumber neer dosa speckled with light green cucumber not only sounds nice but also looks and tastes great!
You can soak rice overnight or just for 4-5 hours. Then you can grind rice with the remaining ingredients and then immediately make dosas. You can also keep the batter overnight/or few hours to lightly ferment and then make cucumber neer dosa. Either way they are delicious.

Karnataka special, sabsige soppu akki roti, the perfect, nutritious breakfast
02/25/2019 9:30:12 PM vindhyadesai
My go to dish for breakfast or sometimes for dinner is akki roti and especially sabsige soppu akki roti. Coming from Karnataka, I have a soft corner for akki roti. At home, this is the most sought after dish, if we cannot think of anything, then we go for akki roti. This Karnataka style sabsige soppu akki roti or dill leaves akki roti is the best of its kind!
The main things for a good sabsige soppu akki roti, is good rice flour, lots of grated coconut, well grown dill leaves chopped finely. Optionally, you can add a bunch of chopped onions to give it a sweet taste and crunchy texture. Remember to let the rice flour rest by adding a little boiling water to it. This will make rice flour nice and doughy and pliable. ... “Sabsige Soppu Akki Roti | Akki Roti | Breakfast Recipes”
Soft fluffy buns with a twist, nutella braided bread to enjoy at tea-time
02/23/2019 10:02:49 PM vindhyadesai
These days I try to bake most things at home. But kneading the dough to make bread, buns or rolls takes some effort. Nevertheless it is worth the effort and so this time I wanted to try something a bit more fancy. So I tried a nutella braided bread which is basically bread dough filled with hazelnut chocolate spread. This is braided into a nice plait and then baked off till golden brown.
A hot cup of coffee and some ooey gooey nutella braided bread to go with it can set you right up. I know chocolate spreads are rich in calories but hey cannot hurt to make this once in a while. A small piece would not hurt anyone and share your nutella braided bread. It is just fun to make it and eat it. In fact involve kids while making this, yes a bit of mess will be on your hands to clean up later. But who’s complaining! ... “Nutella Braided Bread | Chocolate Bread | Bread Recipes”
Lacy and soft, very light on the stomach, ganji dosa or kalikanji dosa
02/3/2019 7:42:40 AM vindhyadesai
Who does not love dosas! I am a big fan of finding new ways of making dosas to bring in variety. So many textures, so many flavours all in a dosa. Soft, lacy, crispy, with filling, without filling, thick or thin, find them all in a dosa! You can make it simple and humble or grand and elaborate. So this time I have come back with a soft lacy dosa recipe ganji dosa or kalikanji dosa I learnt from a magazine.
Ganji dosa or kalikanji dosa is made with a simple rice batter. The most important thing about ganji dosa or kalikanji dosa is the rice does not require a lot of time to soak. Just soak it for a couple of hours. Then the rice is ground with little coconut and some batter is boiled into a ganji (rice porridge). This ganji is poured into the batter after it cools down making it ganji dosa or kalikanji dosa. ... “Ganji Dosa | Kalikanji Dosa | Dosa Recipes”
Perfect to pack for lunch box, kid friendly, lauki thepla or lauki chapathi
01/18/2019 7:27:05 PM vindhyadesai
As I mentioned in my post, bharwa karela posted a few days back, karela and lauki are one the most used vegetables in India. They are staples, nutritious and healthy. But how do we disguise these vegetables in this age of fast food seeking people. A simple lauki sabzi or lauki dal will not sell and it will remain as cooked. Lauki thepla or paratha is one easy way to hide lauki and kids will love it! By the way, this is healthy recipe #5 in this series.
Knead usual chapathi dough with grated lauki and here I have added roasted ground groundnuts. It enriches the flavour and it goes very well with lauki. Lauki has a soft velvetty texture and groundnuts impart nuttiness and texture to these delicious lauki thepla. Feel free to add jeera, ajwain by slightly pounding them. ... “Lauki Thepla | Lauki Paratha | Sorekayi Chapathi | Lauki Recipes”
Crisp, tasty, full of nutrition, oats in a different form, ragi oats dosa
01/16/2019 9:43:01 PM vindhyadesai
Keeping up with the theme of more healthy recipes this new year. Incorporate some high fibrous content and different grains/millets into your diet still in the form of usual dosa, idli and chapathi. Eat what you like and how you like but a few changes in the recipes makes a difference. So after dry nuts, spinach and oats in the form of dry nuts ladoo and spinach oats rava idli, today is the turn of ragi. Ragi oats dosa it is today, one more simple dosa recipe made healthy, your everyday dish!
I believe one should eat what they really like to eat and not force oneself to eat something made up for a diet. Your everyday dishes can be made healthy and yet kept simple. Use the ingredients you have on hand, plan a little and you will get a balance of all essential nutrients. Ragi oats dosa does exactly that!

Pongal of a different kind, Sankranti special, tasty rava pongal

Pongal, khichdi or huggi, whatever name it is called by, it is one of the best dishes in this world! Really, comfort food at its best! And best part is we celebrate our festivals with such fervour and make a simple and humble dish really festive. So for this Makara Sankranti or Pongal, try a pongal with a different ingredient, rava or sooji!
Rava pongal is a very hearty dish to eat with warming black peppercorn and cooling mung dal. The texture is like plain upma but the taste is like pongal, what a super combination! For the festival I generally add cashews to make it more festive. Feel free to omit cashews and just make it plain. ... “Rava Pongal | Rava Huggi | Pongal Recipes”
