This is another method to prepare kozhukattai mavu. Instead of using dry rice flour, we can make a batter out of the soaked rice and then cook the batter to make a dough. This method is quite simple and we don't need to worry about the ratio of flour and water. Even if the batter is very thin, cooking the batter eventually make it like a dough. Some of the beginners find it difficult to work with water and rice flour. So, they can follow this method to make the Kozhukattai Mavu Outer cover. Hope this helps!

Gongura Pachadi (pickle) is a very popular & authentic dish in Andhra Cuisine.  Its made of fresh Gongura leaves and spices. Spice, sour are the main aspects of the dish. We can mix the Gongura pickle with rice or serve with curd rice or Idli / Dosa. Even if you are abroad, you can easily find this gongura leaves in any Indian Grocery shop. Palak leaves & Gongura are the greens commonly available. We also find this Gongura pachadi as a ready mix in shops especially Grand Sweets. All those ready mix available in bottles are having preservatives. So, we can prepare this at home for a healthier version. 

Cooking veggies in Peanut based gravy always made me mouth-watering. Brinjals taste so good with peanuts & onions based curry. We can also make the same curry using capsicum instead of brinjal. Peanuts, sesame seeds and poppy seeds are the base to the underlying gravy. We will enjoy the coarse texture of these ingredients in each bite. Try this Brinjal Peanut Curry with any Indian Bread of your choice and let me know your experience!

Another variety of spicy vadam/vathal. We can use this vadam dough to make ommapodi or thenkuzhal vadam. Ommapodi or thenkuzhal vadam is a spicy and crunchy treat for any Indian Rice Varieties. Just with right ratio of rice batter and water, this would be one of the easiest fryums (vadam) to make at home. Every tamil calendar month "Maasi" (feb mid to mar mid), its a tradition in most of us to make crispy vadam at whole lots which we could use it till next year. Crunchy and spicy Ommapodi madam is a perfect accompaniment for many SouthIndian gravies too :-)

For Seemandam / Valagappu, its a tradition in Tirunelveli to keep Varavarisi as seer bakshanam. Indian pulses like green moong, cow peas, black chick peas, yellow peas dal along with peanut, poha, sesame seeds, rice are all dry roasted and mixed together with salt and spice. A very healthy snack as we are using all healthy pulse and we are dry roasting without frying anything in oil. Especially for valagappu its a tradition to make this nutritional rich dish. We need little patience to finish this dish. So nowadays most of us are getting this varavarisi from Grand Sweets and keeping it for seer bakshanam. But its not a complex dish, so we can very well make this and it would be a healthy snack for kids too. Instead of giving fried snacks this Varavarisi (varapayiru) is a healthy snack too !

Aloo Poha or Batata Poha is one of the popular NorthIndian Breakfast dish especially in Gujarat and many parts of Mumbai. A simple to make breakfast. We can exclude onions in this dish and use it as a fasting (vrat) dish also. Aloo Poha/Urulaikizhangu Aval Upma/Potato Poha, a quick and delicious breakfast which we could make it 10 minutes. Aloo poha is much more tasty than simple Poha/aval upma. Evening during the evenings, we can make this wonderful dish for the children in our home. Try this and let me know your comments!!!
