Chakuli Pitha

When I started compiling the list of dosais, I knew it would have a Southern region bias because dosais are such a staple in these parts. I knew I would get some similar dishes from Western parts like Maharashtra or Gujarat but I honestly did not expect to travel east in my dosai exploration. Today’s…

Adai|Lentil Crepes

This is the first day of our Mega Marathon when we blog about Flatbreads & More. As I declared yesterday, I am doing A to Z of Dosais thanks to a mutiny by the husband and daughter. My original dish for A was to be Appam which is not only my favorite dish but also…

Dal Makhni

I have made this dal quite a few times yet I missed blogging about it. I checked and rechecked the blog to confirm I hadn’t written about it before. Well, I haven’t as yet and so here it is. The best part is that the daughter too loves it and we make it for lunch….

Palak Dal

My daughter has reached that age where she has become super picky about what she eats and one of the things she doesn’t like is spinach. So I have to find different ways to make her eat spinach. This dal is one of those attempts. She loves the regular toor dal and so I figured…

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.

Because the country is an island, there must be coconut trees in plenty which is reflected in the cooking too. The same goes for…

Peanut Porridge

I just finished a mega marathon of Protein Rich Dishes but I am clearly not over it. My theme for today is ‘Dishes from the Caribbean’ and what do I pick? Another protein packed dish. This one is so simple and delicious, not to mention easy to make with most ingredients readily available in your…

Protein Rich Dishes Recap – Mega Marathon BM#80

We come to the end of another Mega Marathon when we blog for all days of the month except Sundays. The theme, as we know, is Protein Rich Dishes and I have showcased 26 different proteins of which 25 are vegetarian. This is my third Mega Marathon after – September Cooking Carnival 2016 where I posted…

Ras Malai

This is the last post for this mega marathon under the theme, ‘Protein Rich Dishes’. I can’t believe how quickly the month went by and I am so glad that I successfully completed my third mega marathon in a row. My protein for today is my favourite, that I was saving up to be the…
