Oats-Pesarattu (Oats- Moong dal Dosa)

This morning I realized that I soaked only a little moong dal (Pesara pappu /Green gram) yesterday night. It didn't make enough batter for making dosa for two. I thought I might do upma on a side. But I am out of upma ravva too! the next alternative was to add rice flour, but excess addition of rice flour makes dosa's firm and very crispy, and they do not taste great! so my next alternative was to grind some quick oats and add that powder to the batter. This worked really well, I just loved it!!! from now I know what I should do, if I do not have enough batter to prepare pesarattu. 

Recipe for two
Moong dal/ pesara pappu/split green gram-1cup
Quick oats powdered coarsely-1/2cup
Green chili-2
Ginger 1 inch
Salt to taste
Onions chopped

oil- as required

wash and soak split green gram overnight or for 6 hours at least. Next day remove excess water and add this soaked dal to a grinder jar and also add green chili, salt, ginger and grind it to a coarse paste. Take this batter into a bowel and add oates powder, add some water and mix well. The consistency of a batter should be neither thick nor very thin, it should be somewhat like a idli batter. 

Heat pan and add 1/2tbsp of oil and spread all over. Take a laddle full of dough and put this entire batter at the center of the pan and spread into a thin sheet like dosa. add 1/2 tbsp of oil with a spoon around the sides of the dosa, add some chopped onions at the center of the dosa. Cook till it turns golden brown and flip it to cook on the other side, for 30seconds.  Transfer it to a serving plate and serve with a tomato chutney. I hope you like this healthy version of pesarattu!!!!

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)
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.…
