Palli chutney for idli/ dosa

Palli/ moongphalli/ ground nut/ pea nut chutney is the most prefers chutney by many of the housewives if the coconut is not in availability. I make this chutney very often, here in USA getting fresh coconut is very difficult.
Ground nuts 1/2 cup
Putnalu/ roasted gram dal- 1/4 cup
Green chili- 3
Salt to taste
Garlic cloves 2
Tamarind soaked in water small marble size
For tempering
Oil 2 tbsp
Cumin seeds 1/2 tbsp
Mustard seeds 1/2 tbsp
Chana dal 1/2 tbsp
Urad dal 1/2 tbsp
Red chili 1
Curry leaf 2 optional

Take all the ingredients ground nut, putnalu, tamarind, garlic cloves, salt and green chili and grind them to fine paste with some water. The consistency should be very thin just like dosa batter. Now prepare tempering heat 2 tbsp of oil in a pan and add mustard, cumin, Chana dal and urad dal one by one and wait till they are light brown then add curry leafs and red chili and turn off the stove. Mix this tempering with chutney. Now the chutney is ready to serve. Hope you like my recipe. Come back again.

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

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.…
