ARISI VADAI RECIPE | VADAI RECIPES | NO ONION NO GARLIC RECIPES

arisi-vadai
Arisi vadai is a very easy vadai recipe, which was introduced by my friend when i visited her house for the first time on a navaratri day. She served this vadai with getti chutney (thick coconut chutney). After that i never tried it athome but tasted it at her house so many times. She will always send for me whenever she makes this arisi vadai. Some recipes have strong memories associated with that right!.This vadai is a perfect and easy evening snack too. This recipe was featured in the supplement i compiled for Kungumam thozi . Arisi vadai is a perfect one to make for guests on a vrat day as it has no onion and no garlic too.
    Though the name is arisi vadai it looks like a kunukku only.

THINAI PESARATTU RECIPE | FOXTAIL MILLET PESARATTU | EASY BREAKFAST RECIPES

Thinnai arisi -pesarattu Thinai|tenai was first introduced to me by my mom during our India trip in June. She made delicious thinai payasam for us and she told me to try it out too. My sister also gifted me with a cookbook containing millet recipes. Actually 2 years back my younger co sister gave me some organic millet and asked to try out some dishes with that. But i didn't even touch that . Right from the day she got married, she has been telling all of us to include millet into our food by replacing rice. But after reading so many healthy benefits of the variety of millet, i started loving the millet and slowly introducing in our diet. My mom sent some Thinai arisi ( also called as Kangni in Hindi, Korra in Telugu, Navanne in Kannada and Thina in malayalam)through my friend in very small quantities.  So far i have tried out few recipes using different types of millet.
  So posting my first millet recipe with Thinai - Foxtail millet. Will posting a recipe with different types of millet once a week.
  Thinai or Foxtail millet has lot of health benefits. It has a very good source of protein and iron. This millet can be easily digested and  controls blood sugar too. I came to know about these information in that book which my sister gave to me.

CURRY LEAVES IDIYAPPAM | KARUVEPILLAI SEVAI | SOUTH INDIAN TIFFIN RECIPES

 No onion no garlic recipes

curry-leaves-sevai
Sevai | idiyappam is a rare thing in my kitchen as kids are not a big fan of these. My amma makes a lot of variety in sevai and she always makes the idiyappam from scratch. Last month when i invited my friends and neighbours for Varalakshmi pooja evening, i made this sevai . It was a huge gathering with almost 50 plus people and so i opted for the instant rice sevai only. I used concord and double horse brand also works out best. It was actually an instant idea and without much thinking i made this and it was a super hit among the guests.
