dosa

‘Dosa’ is the king among all the south indian breakfast dishes. Specially in Andhra Pradesh. A must dish to be included in Breakfast almost every week. Who doesn’t love it once tasted! A simple plain dosa is a fermented crepe or which looks like a pancake made with the batter of soaked rice and soaked black lentils/black gram(urad dal/minappappu). This dosa can be turned out into ‘n’ number of variations of your choice. Sometimes there goes a Dosa mela(Dosa fest) at restaurants with minimum of 30 and more dosa varieties. Interesting isn’t it! I will bring out to my blog as many as I canRead More →

sorakaya_cocogravy_curry

Found this fast, easy and tasty recipe while browsing some squash curry recipes. Wanted to try something different with this Indian squash other than the regular spice curries. I like the flavor of coconut in curries and thus, this recipe caught my attention. I am so sorry for not saving the original post’s address! 🙁 Have tried this a while before and it came out so well. This is a no-oil curry. Isn’t it interesting??? 🙂  It’s good if you can avoid oil in certain curries replacing it with some coconut. You won’t consume much oil that goes in the tempering and will just haveRead More →

Potlakaya Perugu Pachadi / Snake gourd curd chutney

Welcome back!! Beautiful summer vacations are literally keeping me away from blogging. Anyways.., I am back! Our town does not have any Indian stores and when on vacation, I make sure that I come back with lots and lots of Indian vegetables.

The same procedure holds good with Tomatoes, Bottle gourd, Radish, Cucumber. These areRead More →
