Ulundu Purana Kozhukattai, Urad Dal Kozhukattai


          Happy Ganesh Chathurthi ! I usually make Kadala Paruppu Sweet Kozhukattai and Chana Sundal on that day, but this time I am going to be at my mom's place, so before going there, I made two varieties of kozhukattais, one was the Aval Sweet Pidi Kozhukattai and then this Ulundu Purana Kozhukattai. Though I have tasted this many times at my friend's place, this is the first time I made it at home. I used organic Unpolished Arisi Maavu ( Rice Flour ) for the outer layer, the kozhukattais turned out very soft with a beautiful color and tasted very good with the savory filling..

Kovakkai ( Tindora/Dondakaya/Gherkins/Ivy Gourd ) And Peas Curry


          With Ganesh Chathurthi around the corner, I see a lot of kozhukattai and sundal recipes across blogs ( Indian food blogs ). Even my last post was a kozhukattai and I am planning to post another one too, but for today, it's going to be a curry, Kovakkai/Tindora/Dondakaya/Ivy Gourd/Gherkins curry along with fresh green peas. I love to try different combinations of vegetables and I made this curry to go with rotis/chappatis. It's not a dry curry but it doesn't have too much gravy either, and it tasted really good with the rotis..

Aval Sweet Pidi Kozhukattai, Rice Flakes Kozhukattai


          Since it's only a few days for Vinayakar/ Ganesh Chathurthi, I wanted to make a post about some kind of kozhukattai and made these aval/ rice flakes kozhukattais. I used red rice flakes ( slight thick variety ) to make them, and jaggery since this is a sweet version. It's a very easy recipe, the kozhukattais turned out very good, with the right amount of sweetness and flavor..

Soft And Fluffy Idlis ( Steamed Rice Cakes )


          Soft and fluffy idlis, I wanted to have a post on it, in my Basic Recipes section, for a long time now. Though I make it so often, I keep forgetting to take pictures or I put it off, thinking that I'll make a post the next time, when I make them. Finally, today I made it..
