Tomato chutney- Side dish for Idli, dosa and rice

Tomato pacchadi is one of my favorite chutney with which I can munch on with out any hesitation. This is little healthy too. I just got bore with coconut chutney for dosa and thought to try different, I just called my mother and said the same and asked for suggestion. She told me tomtato chutney recipe. Though I know it before but I never gave a try. This is the first time I made this chutney. Thought my hubby will not like that much, surprisingly he loved it a lot. Thank you amma for the yummy recipe. Now coming to the recipe.

Tomatos chopped-2 cups
Green chili- 3 in number
Garlic cloves-2
Ginger-1 inch chopped
Salt to taste
Oil as required
Cumin seeds-1/2ts
Coriander seeds-1/2ts

For seasoning:
Cumin seeds-1/2ts(Jeera)
Mustard seeds-1/2ts(Avalu)
Whole red chili-1/2( endu mirchi)
Chana dal-1tbsp(senaga pappu)
Toor dal-1tbsp(minapa pappu)

Dry roast cumin seeds & coriander seeds, keep them aside. Now heat 2ts of oil in a pan and add tomato and cook by stirring occasionally. While tomato is cooking add green chili, tamarind, ginger, garlic and cook this mixture well. When all the ingredients are well cooked, turn off the stove and let them cool down to room temperature. First grind coriander and cumin together then add tomato mixture and grind well. Finally prepare tempering and add it. For tempering, Heat 2ts of oil in a pan and add cumin seeds and mustard seeds after they start splattering add chana dal and toor dal and saute until they turn light brown. Finally add red chili and saute for 1min and turn off the stove. no wthe tempering is ready and this goes into the chutney. Tempering/seasoning gives a wonderful flavor to your dish. If you are in hurry you can skip this step.

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

Self rising flour-3cups(When 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.…
