Aloo poori or Alu ki poori is a perfect breakfast or dinner recipe which tastes super delicious. They are prepared by adding mashed potatoes and few Indian spices in the Amaranth flour. We can also use the conventional wheat flour. But in North India, especially on fasting (vrat) days, they have a tradition to use Amaranth flour or Buck wheat flour or Water chestnut flour as they are gluten free. Here we are going to make aloo puri using Amaranth flour, which in tamil is a flour made from thandu keerai seeds.

Most of the sundals required overnight soaking, but Moong dal sundal just needs an hour of soaking or we can just skip soaking too and we can start the cooking directly. Just soaking an hour before quickens the process of cooking the dal. Very simple and easy to make Sundal Variety!

Chickpeas (Kondakadalai) Sundal is the delicious recipe that will be prepared by all devotees on the auspicious occasion of Navarathri.

Kadamba means mixed, we are going to use mixed veggies and also rice and lentils thats why we call this as Kadamba Sambar Rice.

Gulab Jamun is a traditional and popular dessert variety of India. For Diwali and many other occasions, we tend to make this delicious dessert. Gulab Jamun are simple and easy to make. Most of us have the habit of getting ready mix for Gulab Jamun. But making Jamun using store bought Khoya is one of the quickest method and also the Jamun will be really really soft and delicious. Some of us make Khoya at home which we can use it for making soft Jamun. In this video, I have used store bought Khoya which I brought it to room temperature and crumbled it and then used with maida to make soft and yummy Jamun. Try this method of making Gulab Jamun using Khoya and you will never think of buying ready mix again!

Most of the restaurants have this wonderful dish in their menu. Also this is a popular dish in Punjabi Cuisine. "Lababdar" means "Strong desire for something and indulge to fulfill the desire.

Ada or Ela Ada (Ilai Ada), is an Indian sweet and traditional Kerala delicacy, consisting of rice parcels encased in a dough made of rice flour, with sweet fillings, steamed in banana leaf. For Onam Sadya, many Keralites has a tradition to make Ela Ada. The sweet filling is usually the traditional coconut jaggery puran. But we also use chakka varatti as the filling. Making Chakka Varatti is a separate recipe so this will make the ela ada little complicated. So instead of chakka varatti, I used jackfruit pieces in the coconut-jaggery puran and used this delicious filling inside the rice pocket. Steaming in banana leaf gives a nice flavor to the dish. Those who living abroad who don't have an option of banana leaf can use parchment paper to steam the rice parcels.
