Pain Brie| Crushed Bread of Normandy

I am not sure whether I should be happy or sad about this loaf. Pain Brie is a traditional bread of the Normandy region of France and it gets its name because ‘brier’ means ‘to pound’ and ‘pain’ is french for bread. So Pain Brie is pounded bread because the dough is pounded many times…

Lolo Buns | Fijian Coconut Buns

For the second day of this month’s Blogging Marathon, I am picking a dish from another country whose name starts with F- Fiji. These amazingly soft and delicious coconut buns are a very popular dish in Fiji. Popularly called lolo buns, these coconut buns are made with bread flour, butter and milk and topped with…

Finnish Rye Scones

After an entire month of dosas and more dosas, I am back to my breads in October. This week’s theme for our Blogging Marathon is to pick one alphabet and blog about three dishes from three countries of that alphabet. I picked F because I thought it is quite a neglected alphabet. It is not…

Tahinli Ekmek | Turkish Tahini Bread – #BreadBakers

After a month long dedication to dosas and pancakes, I am back to my first love – breads, more specifically the yeast based bread. A friend gifted me a bottle of tahini and that got me excited to use it in a bread before all of it goes down the hummus route. So when I…

Zucchini Utthapam

This morning, the husband was not happy when I made these delicious zucchini utthapams because he likes his dosas plain and simple. Then he looks at the date and goes ‘Ah! Z!’ It is amazing when the family is so into our mega marathon and it also is awesome that we have completed another mega…

Yellu Dosai | Sesame Seeds Dosa

This simple, tasty and easy dosai is a special one for me. It is my mother’s favorite dish and probably the only one she made for herself exclusively. I remember there were days when my brother and I would want to order in and dad was having dinner out or the rare days when mom…

Xacuti Paneer Dosa

Ever since I made this Xacuti Bread for last year’s mega BM, I was sure that every A-Z marathon would have a Xacuti dish for X. It is a flavorful spice and goes with quite a few dishes and blends in well. My first instinct was to mix a little of the spice in the…

Today’s dish is from Konkan region of Maharashtra, India. It is a unique dish which uses the watermelon rind (the white part) in making this delicious watermelon dosa. I searched for this recipe and found multiple variations of it. One of it mentions that we can use even the red fruit portion of the watermelon…
