Ragi is my favourite millet. I try to make many different dishes using Ragi. Ragi Malt, Ragi Puttu, Ragi dosa are some of my favourite dishes. Recently, I made Ragi Banana Cake and my daughters love it so much as Ragi and jaggery go very well together. Ragi with jaggery in any form would be a wonderful dish and so I tried these ladoos. I have added nuts to make it richer and tastier. But, I want this dish to be healthier, so, I have used walnuts instead of cashew nuts. Walnuts are healthier than cashewnuts. Finally jaggery instead of sugar. So, overall the dish is healthier. My mom used to make Maladu or Ravaladdu when we have summer holidays. Ragi Ladoo is also an healthy snack for the kids. The preparation is same as maladu. Lets see how to make this healthy and tasty Ragi Ladoo...

Thinking of tea time snack which is quite simple and easy to make and also healthier? All of us have a carving of eating some snacks especially during weekends or holidays. We would we checking our groceries to find if we have any snacks or if we can make simple snacks with available groceries in home. This yummy Masala Pori is a right option for you... We can concoct this in minutes and also with less oil so it is a very healthy evening snack. Also this would be a great crunchy snack for kids returning from school. Most of us make bajji/bonda or other fried items for a evening. But instead of deep fried snacks, this masala pori would be better option. Lets see, how to make this Kara Kara Muru Muru masala pori...

Palak Paratha is a healthy Indian bread made of wheat flour, spinach and mild spices. Many of the kids show aversion to spinach. Everytime, I grind the spinach nicely and make keerai kuzhambu or spinach paratha or spinach vada to make my daughter eat. We should include little spinach in our day to day cooking. Atleast try to use coriander leaves in most of the dishes. The main problem with the kids is they don't like to chew the chopped leaves. So, we can grind it and make a pulp and add it to our dishes. Spinach Paratha is one such yummy and healthy dish. Instead of plain chapati / roti, kids would love this delicious and yummy dish. Lets see how to make this simple and healthy spinach Paratha (Palak Paratha)...

Vegetable Kolhapuri is a very popular Kolhapuri dish which is rich in vegetables and spices. Usually served with Chapati, poori or any Indian Breads. Kolhapuri is a city in Maharashtra and this is one of the famous and popular dish. Also the good part of this dish is the veggies. We are going to add many vegetables and make this dish really healthy and yummy.Spice is on the little higher side in this dish and I love this spicier gravy with Indian Breads. This subzi is good with fried rice or pulao also. Its a way to make our kids eat the veggies. But make sure you add less spice if you want your kids to eat the veggies. 

This week, its NorthIndian Lunch Menu at home. I made Missi roti with Achari Paneer and also Coconut milk masala rice with tomato raitha. Sundays are very special. My daughter loves paneer so much. She asked me to make some paneer dish. She loves paneer butter masala. But, this time, she asked me to make Achari Paneer. Achari Paneer has a nice flavour of pickle which she loves so much. Instead of plain roti, I made missi roti. I was panning to make vegetable pulao. But I was short of some vegetables. So finally I decided to make simple and yummy coconut milk masala rice. For the rice, a best combination is any raitha. This time, I made tomato raitha. A simple and delicious lunch menu which can relish with your whole family!

Coconut milk masala rice and tomato raitha are very simple to make. Missi Roti and Achari Paneer are a bit time consuming. But the combo is a perfect meal. So, overall the menu is compensated by simple and little complex dishes. Your family would surely enjoy this tasty menu!!!

This week, I have decided to make some healthy baking. Then I decided to make Ragi Banana Cake. When I think of Ragi the next ingredient that goes to my mind is jaggery. Ragi and jaggery goes very well. So, I decided to use jaggery instead of regular sugar. So, I decided to use ragi, wheat flour, and jaggery to make this cake more healthier. Also, I have used pressure cooker method to bake the cake instead of using oven. This would be not only a healthy cake but the taste is also so delicious as ragi with jageery gives a nice flavour to the dish. Also the final texture is awesome. The cake is so soft and spongy. Lets see how to bake this Eggless Ragi Banana Cake recipe using pressure cooker.

Semiya Kesari (Vermicilli Kesari) is an alternate for Rawa Kesari. This delicious dish is served in many marriages now a days. The preparation is same as the rawa kesari. Nowadays many of us are trying different sweet dishes. Rawa kesari is the conventional sweet dish in my childhood. But now, we all are opting for some different kesari or sweet dishes. In kesari, we can make many varieties like Pineapple Kesari, Beaten Rice (Aval) Kesari, Semiya kesari, Banana Kesari etc. Vermicilli kesari would not be more soft than other types of kesari because the cooked vermicilli will become slightly become hard after we add sugar. But if we cook the vermicilli is nicely cooked and if we are generous in ghee then this would be a very tasty and yummy kesari!

Most of the Indian Snacks especially evening snacks are deep fried in oil. Many of us are nowadays diet specific and tend to ignore the oily dishes. But still sometimes we feel like devouring some yummy snack in the evening with our tea / coffee. So, this time, I have come up with simple onion vada but baked instead of oil fried and also I have made with wheat flour. This recipe is very simple and it will be like a spicy biscuit. If you don't have an Oven, then don't need to worry. We can deep fry them in oil also. But believe me, baking of crackers consumes less oil than deep frying. Also for most of the Indian Snacks, we use besan / gram flour or maida. But in this recipe we are going to use wheat flour which makes it little healthy. Baked Savory Onion Crackers are really crunchy, crispy and tasty! So lets see how to bake this Onion Crackers!

Mirchi Ka Salan, is one of the popular dish from Andhra Cuisine. Hot Chillies are stuffed with potatoes and cooked in peanut based curry. This is one of the popular accompaniment for Hyderabadi Biriyani. Stuffing of chillies are optional. Generally, it is served as sauted long green chillies cooked in a peanut based curry. Stuffing with paneer or potato is our choice just to enhance the taste. Andhra dishes are generally very hot and spicy and very aromatic. With this same gravy we can make Baingan(Brinjal) ka salan, Tomato ka salan, Capsicum ka salan and many more. The peanut based gravy is very tasty and yummy and we can even saute some fresh paneer and add it to the gravy and serve it for Indian Breads. If you prefer a mild version, then try the same recipe with other vegetables. But this Mirchi ka salan is a perfect spicy and yummy gravy for any Indian breads. 

Asparagus is one of the most nutritionally well-balanced vegetables in existence. Asparagus is a nutrient-dense food which in high in Folic Acid and is a good source of potassium, fiber, vitamin B6, vitamins A and C, and thiamin. Asparagus has No Fat, contains No Cholesterol and is low in Sodium.Thin asparagus does not require peeling. Asparagus with thick stems should be peeled because the stems are usually tough and stringy. Remove the tough outer skin of the bottom portion of the stem (not the tips) with a vegetable peeler. Wash asparagus under cold water to remove any sand or soil residues. It is best to cook asparagus whole. Most healthy way to cook asparagus is to cook it as a whole and then chop it into pieces. We can add chopped asparagus to our favourite salad. We can toss cooked pasta with asparagus with our favourtite pasta spices and olives. We can also saute asparagus with garlic, mushrooms and tofu for a complete meal.

This week, its vegetable rich lunch menu. Yeah, all the main dishes are rich in vegetable. Omam Vendhaya kuzhambu with ladies finger, Chow Chow kootu, Brinjal rasam, curd, rice and papad. Simple and veggie rich menu, a healthy menu for our family. 

This is one of the simple menu which our family would love. Vendhaya kuzhambu is a very tasty main dish. We can add any vegetable to the dish. Generally, I use pumpkin or ladysfinger. This time, I have ladysfinger in fridge so I have used it. Next is Chow Chow kootu. We all know Chow Chow is nutrition rich veggie. So I have made stew out of it. My daughters always love stew compared to poriyal varieties. It is very easy for me to feed them if I make stew instead of poriyal. I mix some dal with hot rice along with ghee and mix the stew. That would be more healthier for kids also.

Next is rasam. Generally tomato is the only veggie (Sorry its a fruit variety) we add in rasam. So, this time, I have selected Brinjal as an additional veggie. Brinjal rasam is a spicy and yummy rasam variety. Oil fried brinjal added to tamarind-tomato rich pulp along with spices to make a wonderful rasam. Finally serve curd, papad and hot steaming rice. Ok.. Lets see the individual recipes that make up this yummy menu!

Chayote (Chow Chow) is an edible plant and like bitter gourd, ridge gourd, this also belongs to gourd family. Chow Chow is is low in Saturated Fat,and a very good source of Dietary Fiber and vitamins. We can make poriyal, stew and thugayal out of Chow Chow. We can serve Chow Chow stew with hot rice and any kuzhambu varieties. We can also mix the stew with hot steaming rice and feed the kids. It is a very healthy and tasty stew and you should try this Chow Chow kootu and share your suggestions.

Pav Bhaji is one of the popular Indian Fast Food dish from Maharashtrian cuisine. Pav is a Portugal word of bread. Pav Bhaji is a spicy mixture of mashed vegetables along with a generous dose of fresh tomatoes, a dollop of butter, optional toppings of cheese and dry-fruits and fresh fruits, consumed with warm bread gently or crispy fried in butter. Pav means bread. Bhaji in Marathi means vegetable dish. Pav bhaji consists of bhaji (a thick potato-based curry) garnished with coriander, chopped onion, and a dash of lemon and lightly toasted pav. The pav is usually buttered on all sides. More than a snack, its quite a meal. The Bhaji makes a good stuffing which fills our tummy nicely. Most of us are using store bought Pav Bhaji Masala which eases our work. But still some of the NorthIndians prefer to freshly make the masala and add it to the bhaji. Either ways the taste is much similar. I have used the store bought masala. I have also mentioned in the ingredients, how to make Pav Bhaji Masala at home. Lets see how to make this easy and tasty Pav Bhaji Masala

When I took stock of the published recipes, I found that I have missed to publish the easy Bajji Recipe. So thought of publishing it today as a first thing. Bajji is a very simple and easy to do snack dish for a nice evening. Mostly for treating our guests, we plan to make bajji. But now a days, I have seen many women using the ready made bajji mix but I always feel our own mix is better than ready mix. We can make bajji using many vegetables. Conventionally Bajji milagai, raw banana, potato are frequently used. I personally like Mirchi Bajji, but for kids, it would be more spicy. If we have unexpected guests, raw banana saves our life. Vazhakkai Bajji (Raw Banana (Plaintain) Bajji) is one of the traditional and yummy snack. Now lets see the recipe...
