ఉగాది అంటే తెలుగు నూతన సంవత్షరం!!!!! మీకు అందరికి నందన నామ సంవత్శర ఉగాది శుభాకాంక్షలు!!!!!!  In sanskrit Yuga means era, Adi means beginning.Ugadi is one of the biggest festival of Telugites, it is also celebrated in Karnataka, Maharastra and Kashmir. We telugites during this festival, clean our homes, wrap ourselfs in traditional clothes and cook a special food and offer god, do prayer and listen to Panchanga sharavanam, means horoscope for the coming year! The special food made for this festival is Puran poli/Pappu purnam, baksha/roti stuffed with lentil halwa, Ugadi pacchadi, pesarappu payasam and mamidikaya pulihora (mango Rice). I cannot wait to nibble puran poli, some time I can even grab half a dozen of them and gobble up. Ugadi pacchadi is the special soup which is made out of shadruchulu ( 6 tastes). I'll post teh recipe of Ugadi pacchadi soon!!! now we will see the puran poli/pappu purnam preparation, with kandi pappu/Toor dal. Genarally it is prepared with sanaga pappu/ chana dal, but I ran out of chana dal.

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)

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.…
