Daddojanam- Yoghurt rice is a very traditional rice recipe in southern parts of India. It is served as a holy food(prasadam) in almost all the temples. World famous richest Temple Tirumala tirupathi offers this as one of the food to God and give this food as holy food to the devotees. I personally love this prasadam. Coming to the recipe.
Curd/Youghurt-100grms/1 cup
Flattened rice/poha/Atukulu-1 cup
Carrot grated finely-1/4cup
Cucumber(kheera)-grated finaly-1/4cup
Onions finaly chopped-1/4cup
For seasoning/tempering:
Cumin seeds-1/2ts+1/2ts
Mustard seeds-1/2ts
Chana dal-1/2ts
Toor dal-1/2ts
Ginger-1/2 inch
Green chili-1 or 2 depending on how much hot you want
Salt to taste
vegetable oil-2ts
red chili-1

Note: In temples they do not use onion, cucumber, green chili & carrot. They use Black peppers instead of green chili. You can prepare the same dish with cooked rice as well.

Take a bowl and toss in curd, flattened rice, cucumber, carrot, onions $ salt to taste one by one and mix well. Add 1/2 cup water if you wish. Now keep this mixture aside. 

Take green chili+1/2ts cumin seeds+ ginger and grind it into a fine paste with hand grinder. Now prepare seasoning, for seasoning heat 2ts of oil in a pan and add cumin seeds & mustard seeds. Wait until they splatter the add chan dal & toor dal wait until they turn golden brown. Add Red chili  & green chili+cumin+ginger paste and saute until raw flavor vanishes.

 Add this seasoning to the curd mixture and mix well.

 Refrigerate it for atleast 30min. Now the Yummy daddojanam is ready to serve. 

Hope you like my recipe.

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.

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)
Egg-1+1 for wash (coat on surface of unbaked bun)
Dry active Yeast-1tbsp

Add dry active yeast to the warm milk (the milk should be lukewarm i.e., when you insert your finger it should not hurt you), close with lid and keep aside for15min during which the yeast becomes active. Now take a bowl and add self rising flour, salt and sugar. Mix well. Break open egg in a s…

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.…
