Quinoa Adai


          Though I have been cooking quinoa for so many years now, I have been using it only, in the place of rice in pilafs or just cooked it as such or with some rice and used it with sambar and curries. Only now, I have started using it in dosa batter and muffins and the next in that list is this Quinoa Adai. This is not a big recipe, we make it the same way as regular adai, using quinoa in the place of rice, the adai came out well and the quinoa gave a nice taste to the it..

Sorakkai Chutney, Bottle Gourd ( Lauki ) Chutney


          Today's post is going to be another healthy and delicious chutney with bottle gourd, Sorakkai Chutney, Bottle Gourd or Lauki Chutney. The first time I tasted it, I was even surprised to know that there was bottle gourd in the chutney, but now when I think about it, we make chutneys with almost all vegetables and greens. Though, basically this chutney is made to go with idlis and dosas, you can still have it with rotis or even have it with some plain rice..

Suran Sabzi, Senai Kizhangu Curry, Yam Curry


          Whenever I bought Senai Kizhangu/ suran/ yam, the first dish that I made with it was always the senai kizhangu fry, and the next one would be the masiyal and sometimes I have made a gravy/ kuzhambu with it to go with rice. I have never tried making a curry with it to go with rotis, this is the first time that I tried this sabzi with suran. It's a curd/yogurt based gravy which gives the thickness and creaminess to it and it goes very well with both rotis and rice..

Soy Chunks Pulao, Meal Maker Pulao


          We like soy chunks at home, it's a good source of protein in a vegetarian diet, usually I add it to kurmas, briyani and I have also made parathas with it too. Recently I made this pulao with soy chunks, it's a simple and flavorful dish and very nutritious. Serve it along with a vegetable raitha or kurma for a complete and delicious meal..
