Sanna Polo | Konkani style Cabbage Dosa

This is one of my favorite dishes for this month. This is a quick breakfast dish from the Konkani cuisine. Though it is a part of Maharashtra, Konkani cuisine has its own distinct flavours and style making it unique in itself. This is another cuisine, like Karnataka, which has many dosa style dishes, each tastier…

Eerulli Dose | Onion Utthapam

I was quite worried about what dish I would get for alphabets like E but thankfully not only did I get a dish, I got one of the easiest and tastiest dishes. Eerulli dose is nothing but the popular onion utthapam as it is known in Karnataka. The humble onion utthapam is so simple yet…

Oven roasted carrot soup

If you want to make anything delicious, I suggest you roast it in the oven. Tomatoes, yes…onions, yes….carrots, yes….sweet potato, yes….garlic ,yes. I think I have made my case. Roasting in the oven gives the dish a lovely aroma and an explosion of flavours that are otherwise not unearthed. I know I have two more…

Mixed Vegetable Sagu – Karnataka Special Meals

I am back to Blogging after what seems like ages though it’s actually been just a month. This week I will be posting three different thalis or combo menus. When Valli announced this theme, she was benevolent to allow us to post one recipe from our previous thali menus. So when I checked on the…

Kadala Thel Dala | Stir fried Chickpeas

The second dish for the Sri Lankan cuisine theme is a popular snack called Kadala Thel Dala which is quite similar to the sundal prepared in Tamil cuisine. One main difference is the addition of onion to this dish which is not usually added to sundal but which makes this a simple yet delicious bowl…

Bansi Rava Upma

When the husband heard about this week’s theme and my first two dishes, he was pretty upset. He felt that by documenting those elaborate breakfasts alone, I was not being completely honest. Though I do make elaborate breakfasts for the weekend, it is not quite as often as he would like it to be. So,…

Yang PaBbang

We are almost at the end of our baking mega marathon. I was quite worried at the beginning because I wasn’t as prepared as I should have been and the strategy was to bake almost everyday. But surprisingly I enjoyed this month immensely. My routine would be to finish the day’s cooking by 7 in…

Clear Onion Soup

I am not a huge fan of clear soups. Therefore the logical conclusion is that the husband is. He does not understand why soups need to be creamy, rich purees as against light soups with lots of flavour and I fail to comprehend why I need such clear soups when water will do the trick….

Onion Coriander Soup #MonsoonMojo

    I totally hate the end slices of store bought bread. My brother and I always traded favours so that the other person would have the end slice. It sounds silly to me today but I still try to pass those slices to the husband (who thankfully doesn’t mind). So when my mom found this…
