Murungakeerai and Ragi (Moringa Leaves and Finger Millet) is a great combination. We get Murungakeerai almost all through the year in Kuwait. It is locally grown I hear. So whenever I see a fresh bunch in the store, I pick one. I make soup or add it to Adai or Ragi dosai. This can be made for breakfast, evening snack or even as a healthy … Continue reading Murungakeerai Ragi Roti
It is that time of the year when the sun goes home early and the evenings are longer, darker and colder. We spend to get more time indoors and go for an additional round of coffee, tea or any hot beverage demanded by the weather. Biting into something nice along with a cuppa would not harm anyone!

But this changed after wedding and moving to Kuwait. There is no weekday/weekend for non-vegetarian food. I started trying my hands with meat and seafood and I can safely say that I can cook some decent non-vegetarian meal now. You … Continue reading Chettinad Mutton Kola Urundai (Fried meat balls)
The habit of reading Vikatan magazines is in my blood! Every Thursday, the happiness for my grandmother and my dad is to have the fresh copy of Anandha Vikatan in hands and they will not be in peace till they finish reading it. We even have some of the treasured very old copies at home. Sometimes, my dad will be the one to get the first copy … Continue reading Moong dhal Pesarattu
One of my weekend protocols is to prepare and store the idly/dosa batter for rest of the next week. I’m sure it is the case with many of the working women and the dosa batter is a saviour when you are already battered at work! But monotony is boring, hence I prepare the batter for millet dosa or adai or aapam in addition to the plain … Continue reading Kambu (Pearl Millet) Dosai
