Chimichurri Rice

This is quite late to wish everyone a grand 2019 but in my defense I have been busy with holidays and family reunions and then recovering from the hangovers of the holidays and family reunions. So happy 2019 to everyone. I begin this year, surprisingly, not with a bread recipe which is usually the norm….

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…

Davangere Benne Dose

This is a classic dosai and one of the first ones I decided on when I was compiling my list of dishes for this month. I am absolutely in love with the various doses of Karnataka but like everyone I love the benne dose the best. Benne means butter and like its name this dose…

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…

Balehannu Dose|Banana Dosai

For the second day of the mega marathon, I have the Balehannu Dose or the banana dosai. Thanks to this marathon, I discovered the amazing variety of dosais made in Karnataka. I have been consciously trying out more local food since I moved back to Bangalore two years ago but my dose knowledge was kind…

Dun Thel Bath | Ghee Rice with Green Peas

The theme for this week is Sri Lankan cuisine. When I picked this theme, I did not know that the cuisine is very similar to Indian, more specifically South Indian 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…

Mushroom Egg Rice

My second recipe with vegetable sources of protein is this simple mushroom and egg rice. Mushroom is one of the veggies to be high on protein. But like I mentioned yesterday, most of my recipes for this week has an additional protein source to truly qualify as a ‘protein rich’ dish. This dish is one…

Dal Khichdi

Today’s recipe is another classic dish. Dal Khichdi has as many recipes as there are people eating it and I thought I should put my version on paper (or screen) and send it into the world to jostle for space among the other simple and complex khichdi recipes. This is the version that the family…

Pongal

One of the easiest, simplest and hearty breakfast is Pongal. It hardly needs you to be around while it hets ready. You can put it in the pressure cooker and disappear for a while and saunter in once its done and add a few finishing touches and voila! Healthy breakfast ready. This is usually my…

Tamarind Rice

  The husband loves rice and I can easily live without rice for the rest of my life. I love cheese and the husband runs away at the mere mention of it. So most of our fights are about food – what to make, what to eat, where to go out for a meal.    Back…
