MIXED RICE DOSA 

This is a famous konkani styled dosa made using two types dosa ,tastes awesome with a good flavour and taste… This dosa is populary known as Surai Ukde polo in konkani language..😀 Surai means sona masoori or dosa rice and Ukde means boiled rice also known as red or matta rice….

The dosa batter doesn’t need any fermentation but you need to soak rice for around 4 hours before grinding so that it can be broken easily ,the batter can be ground coarse or fine . If u coarse grind the batter then u need to make slightly thick dosa but i prefer to make it as per my family choice fine and make medium thick dosa.

Here i have served dosa with coconut jaggery mix  known as choorn tastes best with this or this dosa can be relished with any chutney or pickle of our choice or even with butter

INGREDIENTS 

•1 cup sona masoori 

•1 cup red rice 

•1 cup grated coconut 

•Salt to taste

•Oil to drizzle 

METHOD 

▪Wash and soak both rice together for around 3-4 hours 

▪Grind rice along with coconut gratings to fine batter using water

▪Remove to container add salt and mix well

▪Heat dosa griddle  well,simmer the flame and pour laddle full of batter and slightly spread or pour batter as u do while making neer dosa

▪Drizzle oil and cook closed on medium heat till the base is cooked

▪Flip dosa and cook other side till golden spots appear 

▪Serve with chutney of your choice or with Jaggery coconut mix

Coconut Jaggery mix: 

Freshly grated coconut (only white part),jaggery grated as per sweetness,a pinch salt and 2 pinch cardamom powder,mix everything well till combined .

NOTE l

Tip for beginners  :As there is no use of urd dal the batter sticks to the pan as u spread so always see that you keep flame on low heat then try to spread dosa evenly and then higher the flame to cook well..

EGG WITH POTATO CURRY

An Aromatic Egg curry recipe with no oil or no garam masala ,yet a fingerlicking curry ❤.. Its a bunt style preparation ,i simply loved it with my plate of hot steamed rice 😍

Its filled with lots of Flavour and taste ,i really wonder how🤔…. Using of pototo is something which adds plus point to the dish, How? ..Both an egg lover and egg hater can enjoy this dish to the fullest at the same time 😍 as my family do,my elder son likes eggs ,no potatoes and younger loves potato ,no eggs …i will always be in delima what to make 😓 so here is an end to it now 😍….

This curry is perfect with Parota ,neer dosa, chapati or even with steamed rice or matta rice (red rice) 😊….

Learnt this simple recipe from a very dear bunt friend Raksha Shetty .. 

INGREDIENTS 

•4 Eggs

•1 large /Medium pototo (washed and cubed with peel or without)

•1 medium Onion chopped/sliced

•1 cup grated coconut 

•12 fried badgi chilles(as per need)

•4 seeds Fenugreek 

•11/2 tsp coriander seeds 

•1/2 tsp cumin seeds 

•8-10 peppercorns 

•Small piece cinnamon (opt)

•2 cloves(opt)

•6 flakes garlic 

•A small gooseberry size tamrind 

•Turmeric

•coriander leaves chopped finely for garnish 

METHOD 

▪Heat a pan add 2 drops oil ,and fry coriander seeds, cumin, Methi, cinnamon, cloves, pepper, garlic till a good aroma … remove this to grinding jar
▪Add tamrind ,fried chilles, turmeric , coconut to grinding jar along with enough water and grind masala to very fine paste. 

▪In a pan add potatoes,water and boil till done add onion salt and boil awhile add ground masala and simmer the gas and allow to boil well with closed lid ,when it starts to bubble check salt ,drop eggs(break eggs directly) one by one and turn flame to medium ,close lid and cook till eggs get cooked

▪Garnish with freshly chopped coriander leaves and relish with hot rice or anything of your choice..

NOTES

*Curry consistency is medium thick not runny ,you check below picture for reference 

*i have used cinnamon and cloves here but as per my friends suggestion there is no need of it 😊

*Its always better to break egg  in a bowl first then drop in the curry one by one ,sometimes spoilt egg can’t be detected by outside and by doing this the risk is reduced 😀 a tip to be noted dear friends 🖒Happy cooking !…

Nankhatai/Narayan katar 

A melt in mouth Eggless cookies….. This easy to make crunchy sweet cookies were my child favourite and my Mom’s speciality cookies ,she used to make it very often when guests visted us or for distribution during some celebration or birthdays….

As Gowri Ganesha festival is on its way and I was wondering what to make to munch with my relatives and friends and suddenly i saw this post of nankatais by one of my foodie friend and tempted me to make this easy recipe…. I then called my mom for recipe and quickly pendowned the recipe and started making as the ingredients were very few and handy except vanaspati but got it and made dough at night and rested it well and baked it in the morning…. Within few minutes cookies where ready 😊I am happy to see them perfect crisp crunchy ❤❤❤

Recipe is as under

​Recipe

•1 cup all purpose Flour (Maida)

•1/2 cup Gram flour

•1 cup sugar powder

•1/2 tsp cardamom powder 

•2 generous pinch cooking soda

•A pinch salt

•3/4 cup vanaspati (Dalda)
METHOD 

▪Heat pan and add vanaspati,when it starts melting switch off flame and allow it to completely melt in its own heat present and allow it to cool..

▪Sieve  Maida, gramflour, salt and soda 

▪Now to the vanaspati pan add sugar powder and mix vigorously till a smooth paste see that no lumps are formed to this then add flour mixture,cardamom powder and mix to a stiff dough ,cover it and rest it for 8 hrs

▪After the resting time you can see the dough getting hard,again crumble it with fingers and knead well and make large marble size balls or any shape as per your likings and press gently with the help of ur palm 

▪place them on a baking tray with enough space in between each nankatai and bake them in a preheated oven at 180deg for 20-25 minutes or till done..

NOTES

*1/2 cup unmelted Ghee can be used instead of Vanaspati but using Vanaspati gives perfect bakery style crunch to cookies…

*for beautiful colour one can add 1/4 tsp of turmeric powder to the melted vanaspati …

*i usually add cardamom plus sugar and make powder 

*Timings from one oven to another oven may varry so keep checking after 15-20 minutes
