yoghurt chutney/ perugu pacchadi/raita

Perugu pacchadi/ curd chutney/ raita is my favorite combo for bagara/biryani, I can even have it with white rice/paratha or simply eat it directly. It tastes that good. It is very simple to make and delicious to taste.

Here are the ingredients for simple raita:
Green chilis chopped-2ts
onions chopped-1/2cup
Carrot chopped-1/4cup(optional)
Cumin seeds-few
Hing/ asafortida-pinch
Mustard seeds-few
red chili-1
curry leaf-1 rib (optional)
Cilantro/coriander for garnishing
Salt to taste

  • Mix yogurt +half of green chili+salt+ half of onions and carrots in a bowl.
  • Prepare tempering: Take 2ts of oil in a pan and heat it.
  • Add cumin + mustard + hing+ remaining onions and green chili's and wait until the onions turn transparent.
  • Now add this tempering to the yogurt mixture and mix well.
  • Finally garnish with cilantro.

Note: you can add little water if you want thin consistency.

IDLI batter became watery friends need your suggestions

Morning while talking  to my hubby, I was adding water into over night fermented Idli batter, while talking I didn't realize how much water I'm adding. Few more water drops spoiled my whole batter. Consistency now is thin. I left it that way in refrigerator. I can make utappam but I want Idli, friends any ideas to repair it?

How to make delicious soft bread buns with self rising flour?

We can play with the bread bun recipe. Every one has their own version of making them. I had experimented with different kinds of recipes and came out with my own recipe which is perfect for making soft buns. These buns are perfect for making sandwich/tea time snack. I love self rising flour and its uses, I had already posted pan cakes and cake with self rising flour. It is very easy to use and yields very fruitful results.
Now coming to recipe

Makes 8 medium size buns
Self rising flour-3cups(When measured with 160ml cup)
Salt-1/4tea spoon
Butter-1 cup(melted and measured with 160ml cup)

Dhokla with the readymade flour available in the market

Dhokla is one of the dish I always wanted to try, this time I bought some ready made dokla flour form the "Patel brothers" one of the Indian grocery store in our near by area. The ingredients on the pack say that it contains besin (Gram flour) and rice flour. I was little confused, about the kind of ingredients that goes into the recipe. Later I did a little research and came up with my own recipe. It worked, dokla came out wonderfully. I never tasted dokla before, but now after making this yummy and healthy Indian flour cakes, I regret for not tasting them before. Form now dokla always stays in the weekly snack menu of our home.

I feel so dumb sometimes, because I bought dokla flour but forgot the fact that I do not have dokla plates. If your case is same like me, give me "high-5"!! No problem you can use the idli plates instead. Problem solved!  Now coming to the recipe.

Dokla flour- 1 cup
Curd/ Yogurt-1/2cup
Turmeric-1/4 t.s
Chilli powder-1/4 t.…
