I had some leftover idlis left three days back. When I was thinking how to make use of the leftover idli, this Fried Idli recipe came to my mind. You can make a lot of recipes using leftover idlis like Idly Manchurian, Kaima Idli, Masala Idli, Idli Upma etc. I have already posted Idly Manchurian recipe. This time, I thought I’ll make some crispy fried idlis. It came out very well. The Fried Idlis would be crispy and little hard from outside while soft from inside. You don’t have to make any side dish for this recipe. I made it as a snack for Gj and Sanvi. Sanvi likes any recipe that has Idli Milaga Podi because she loves the podi so much. Even if she is not in the mood to eat dosa or idli, she will still eat it if I serve the same with idli milaga podi. Gj was too tired from work, and he liked the Fried Idli so much. He had enough, but felt hungry within two hours. You can have Fried Idli as a snack, but it would not make your stomach full. This is a very good travel recipe and stays good for 2 days.
Whenever I look at a Banana plant/tree, I always see it with a sense of gratefulness. We benefit from each and every part of the plant say its fruit, leaves, flowers, and trunk. Mother nature has gifted this magnificent plant to us. Bananas are rich in Potassium, lowers blood pressure and helps a lot in constipation. The leaves are used for cooking, storage, and serving food. Banana flowers and trunk are also used for cooking. Banana fiber and bark are used to make papers.
In my family, all of us freak out when we hear about Tandoori Chicken. It is our damn favorite dish, and my mom makes it every Sunday for my father and brother. I make once a month and have it along with Coriander Yoghurt Raita or Mint Yoghurt Raita. I love the dips, and they go vey well with Tandoori Chicken. Sometimes, when I crave for the dips, I’ll make Tandoori Chicken. My God…they both get along very well. Okay, I have already posted two versions of Restaurant Style Tandoori Murgh, Tandoori Chicken and this one in the third version. I think this is the only recipe in my blog which has three versions apart from Hara Bhara Kabab, which has two versions: Hara Bhara Kabab and Hara Bhara Kabab | Spinach and Potatoes Patties.
Dal Tadka is a very easy and quick recipe that you can make during your lazy days. This is Sanvi’s favorite dish, and she would have it every other day. I have posted a similar Tadka recipes earlier in my blog like Dal Tadka and Sindhi Moong Dal . It is a popular dish in India and cooked often in most of the households. It is very simple to make, and you can serve it with Chappathi as well as Rice. If you are thinking why this is called Dal Tadka then let me explain it to you. Tadka in Hindi means tempering. In this dish, we cook dal and then temper it with the seasonings. You can also add any veggies you want. Lets learn to make this Dal Tadka recipe.
For most of them who loves Chinese Cuisine, Honey Sesame Chicken would be one of their favorite recipes. It is very easy to make too. The fried chicken pieces will be sauted in a sticky sweet and savory honey sauce. When you eat it, the chicken would give you a crunchy feeling. This is a very versatile dish and you can make it in many ways. Hope you all like it.
Mor Kuzhambu is my all time favorite, and I would never say no to it. My mom would make this on Fridays along with potato curry or brinjal fry. I think most of us love Mor Kuzhambu, and I have not seen any one who does not like this Mor Kuzhambu. It is a very easy and quick kuzhambu to make at home. I have posted many versions of Mor Kuzhambu in my blog like Cucumber Moru Kootu and Poosanikai Mor Kuzhambu.
Mango Cream recipe is kind of similar to Mango Shrikhand recipe. It is very easy and simple to make. Once the Mango Cream is ready, you can even freeze it and serve it as an ice cream. It tastes so good. My family just loves it.Last year also I planned to post several mango recipes, but was able to post only Mango Lassi. This summer, I am planning to post some mango recipes. Let’s see if I am able to post them as planned. Mango Cream is a wholesome and refreshing summer dessert. Hope you all like this Mango Cream recipe.
We have tea every evening along with Rusk or Cookies or Bread Rolls. I bake French Bread Rolls at least once a week. Both Sanvi and Shreeya loves them. It is also super easy to make. It comes out spongy and super soft. It also tastes more like English Muffin. Sometimes, when I take them out of the oven piping hot, I spread it with little butter and have it along with tea. My family is hooked to this Bread Rolls and we all love it. It is also perfect for sandwich recipes. Bun and Bread lovers, try it out and you will also get hooked to this recipe.
When I was 3 months pregnant with Sanvi, I was craving for Chicken Kola Urundai. My mom came here for help, and she made this Chicken Kola Urundai the very next day itself. My God….it tasted so good. The taste still lingers in my mouth. She made it for Gj’s friends too. They simply loved it. Along with Chicken Kola Urundai, my mom made Chicken Kuzhambu, Fish Fry and Chicken Pakora. My happiness knew no bounds. We had enough, and could not resist at all. That was one of the best lunches I had in my life. When you crave so much for a dish, and all of a sudden you have so many favorite dishes in front of you, how much happy would you be??? When I think about Chicken Kola Urundai, I can only think of the lunch my mom made. You can serve the urundai with Coriander Yoghurt Raita and Mint Yoghurt Raita.
My mom loves Lychee a lot, as she used to have it when she was in Malaysia. Whenever, I go with my mom to market, when she sees Sapotta fruit, she would tell me that Lychee has also got similar appearance but would be quite small. I remember having it in Malaysia, but that was when I was 5 year old. Those days, we get Lychee very rarely in India. I heard from my friends that these days during Summer, you get lychee often. I hope most of you might have tasted the lychee fruit. Still, I can tell you that the white part of the lychee fruit tastes kind of sweet as well as refreshing. All you have to do is peel the red skin of lychee and have the white part of it. Make sure you remove the seed.
Pavakkai is my favorite veggie. I know for some of you it may sound weird. Yes, myself and Gj love Pavakkai so much especially if it is roasted or fried. I have already posted Crispy Bitter Gourd Fries recipe. I am glad that many of you liked it. This is a very similar recipe and goes well with Sambar, Rasam, Buttermilk and Curd Rice. Hope you like this recipe too.
I make egg dishes rarely at home. If I make any egg dishes, then it would be an omelette (GYM Omelette, Rice Omelette) most of the times. This Egg Kuzhambu goes well with Rice,Chappathi, Phulka and even Idli/Dosa. When I am lazy, I will make this Egg Kuzhambu so that I can serve it with rice for lunch and with Rotis for dinner. Gj loves this Egg Kuzhambu so much. I wanted to post this Egg Kuzhambu recipe for a long time. Finally I am here with this tasty Egg Kuzhambu recipe.
I should agree that I am not a lover of puli kuzhambu, but once in a while I make it for Gj. For Gj, Puli Kuzhambu should taste spicy and also have a tangy taste. In the past, I have tried several Kathirikkai Puli Kuzhambu recipes but none of them satisfied mine or Gj’s tastebuds. I tried this recipe from Chef. Jacob’s book and it tasted absolutely delicious. Both of us loved it. You can have this kuzhambu with rice and even idli/dosa. Hope you like it!
