Wheat flour sweet seedai, Gokulashtami recipes

Sweet seedai is a very simple seedai made with wheat flour, sugar and few other easy available ingredients. I have posted Vella seedai recipe where we add jaggery for sweetness. For beginners if you are still not confident  of the consistency of vella paagu for vella paagu, you can make this sweet seedai. This is a no fail, no burst seedai recipe. I saw this recipe of sweet seedai in a youtube video and made few changes in that. We all loved the sweet seedai.
Actually my plan was to post Milagu seedai but unfortunately it popped. I think the home made pepper powder is not so fine and thus this disaster. So found this recipe so easy and attempted it. Check out my full collection of Gokulashtami recipes.

Spicy Pomegranate raita with Alvas Natural Yogurt

Alvas Yogurt - A review

Yogurt|Curd|Thayir, we Indians include in our everyday meal, either in the form of curd rice or buttermilk or masala chaas.  I got a mail from Alvas, an Indian Diary Producer in Singapore, to  write a review on their yogurt. I readily accepted it and they sent me their products in 2 days.
Alvas Natural curd comes in 3 different sizes, 200ml, 500ml and 1litre. 
Alvas Natural Yoghurt is available in Sheng Shiong outlets, FairPrice shops and Mustafa Center in Singapore. I felt the availability of the yogurt is quite reachable to all, as we have Sheng Shiong and FairPrice outlets island wide. Apart from these places, it is available in all Indian Mini marts. Coming  to the price, the 200 ml is priced 1.20 SGD , the 500ml is 2.80 SGD and the 1 litre is priced 5.40 SGD. 
This review is based on my personal opinion. I am not paid by the company to write the review. I was given only the yogurt by Alvas Natural.

You can make koftas also with this White gravy as base. I adapted the recipe from Tarla dalal's website, with little changes. Even for parties or potlucks you can include this along another spicy tomato based gravy, it will be a great combo to pair these with naan, rotis and pulao.

Onion Bajji recipe, Vengaya bajji

Onion bajji |  South Indian style vengaya bajji is a deep fried onion fritters. They are dipped in a flour batter and deep fried in oil. Bajjis take place in our home very rarely but when we were kids bajjis are made on all Sundays. Amma used to make Vazhakkai bajji often as we get fresh home grown vazhakkai(raw banana) always from the garden. Also kathrikkai(eggplant) bajjis are our most favorite ones too. We feast on bajjis and skip our dinner or just drink some buttermilk and sleep off. Onion bajjis are made rarely as amma makes it whenever there is some extra batter left over. That too she will finely chop all the onions and mix it with the remaining batter and fry in the oil. It is more similar to the north Indian style onion bhajiyas. We love to eat this with curd rice.
Vengaya - bajji
  When i called up amma yesterday that i am going to make onion bajji for post, she told me to try out bajji by soaking channa dal and rice. The procedure is to make a thick batter out of this and make bajjis with that batter. My appa's mami sued to do this and she told it would taste awesome. But i didn't have time for that as i already kept everything ready to take video of bajji. But will try this method and post the recipe soon.

Generally i never write reviews about any product in Jeyashri's kitchen but since i am very fond of aprons i accepted to do this review for Perfico.

You can make your loved ones very happy by giving customised gifts for them on their birthdays and wedding anniversaries. They even have customised aprons for men.

I would have loved to have the apron in some other colour as well, but since I was running out of time, I couldn't get the colour I wanted.They also have only a few colour options. The apron was neatly packed and delivered to me. My mom was the first one to wear that ๐Ÿ˜Š
