Kadamba Dosai

Is there any South Indian who hates Dosa? Everybody loves it, easy to make and it is the most significant food of TamilNadu. Generally our dinners are Dosa/Chappati/Adai, but I wanted to make something special instead of plain dosa and Chutney/Sambhar (simply carbs and little amount of proteins).

So I started chopping all the veggies very fine and added them as toppings. To my surprise both the DDs didn’t reject them. My Parents and DH really enjoyed it, but couldn’t eat more than 3 or 4 dosas, because it is so heavy like Uthappam.

Onion ---------------------> 1 cup
Green Chilles -------------> 2
Broccoli -------------------> 1 cup
Zucchini -------------------> 1 cup
Cauliflower ---------------> 1 cup
Carrot ---------------------> 1 cup
BeetRoot ------------------> 1 cup (optional)
Cabbage ------------------> 1 cup
Tomato --------------------> 1
Sprouted Green Beans --> 1.5 cups
Cilantro ---------------------> ½ bunch
Salt -------------------------> A2Y taste


v  Finely chop all the veggies. Food Chopper(I have exactly this one) does the job in seconds. I chopped just the Tomato, and Cilantro using Knife.                
v  Mix all the veggies, Sprouted Green Beans, salt in a bowl                   
v  Make dosa in a dosa pan, spread the veggie mixture nicely on top of it; cover it with the lid             
v  After couple of minutes,  turn over the dosa and add oil around the dosa edges.                  
v  Serve with any kind of Chutney or Idli Sambhar                      

Delicious, Healthy Kadamba Dosa is ready for you!!!  Sprouted Green Beans also tasted ver good.

Kids Special - Corn Potato Nuggets

...I am Back from Break

It is been sooooo l-o-o-o-o-o-ng time since I blogged, almost 2.5 years, I took a break from my blogging. Our family is grown, little DD(Bouncy is her nick name) is 21 months already. DD(Bumpy) started Kinderkarten and my parents are here now having fun with DDs. Time is flying faster than you expect.

I don’t think I’ll be able to recollect everything, but I’ll try to pen it down when something flashes in my mind.
Since my DM is around, I'll try to post regularly.

I wanted to make Vegetarian Nuggets for my DD and I came up with this receipe. I make this for DD's lunch, sometime for DH also(but adult version)
Sago Pearls ---------------------> ¼ cup  (Javarisi or Sabudana)
Frozen Corn Kernels ------------> ½ cup                                              
Potato  --------------------------> 1 cooked         
Bread Crumbs  -----------------> ½ cup             
Pepper - Jeera Powder --------> ½ tsp 
Salt -----------------------------> A2Y taste          

v  Soak the Sago Pearls overnight          
v  Mash the potato and mix the Sago Pearls, Corn, and Salt
v  Add a pinch of Pepper-Jeera Powder
v  Make small ball from the mixture and roll it in the bread crumbs
v  Make patties and fry in the pan.                         

Yummy Nuggets are ready!! Since it is not deep fried, you don’t need to worry about trans fat.
