Carrot Salad

This is another easy and simple salad. Carrots are a salad regular and I usually make it South Indian style. This recipe from the book, Diva Green, had a different flavour combination for the ubiquitous carrot.

Raagi Dosa

       It’s my constant endeavour to feed the husband and kid some finger millets. But I am usually unsuccessful. So whenever I get a chance, I make raagi dosas which is the least hated form for the duo. I also like the fact that it’s quick and easy to make. I have tried various…

Bottle Gourd Juice & a refreshed morning

Wheat Jaggery Cake

My mother gave me almost a kilo of jaggery the last time she visited. She expected me to make puran poli and kozhakatai for the husband. But I was very keen to try baking with jaggery. It is definitely healthier than sugar and I could bake more often without adding a teaspoon of guilt along…
