Ragi Poori - Finger Millet Poori - Simple breakfast, Dinner recipe - Millet recipes

Ragi is one of my most favourite millets. I use Ragi millet at least on alternate days. I have tried different mixes and I find that the 1/2 and 1/2 mix works the best. So This recipe is using 1/2 portion of Wheat and 1/2 portion of Ragi flour. Only recently my kids started taking Wheat flour based poori. Before this they used to take only Maida (All purpose flour) poori. This version of Ragi poori is something my kids also loved

Valaipoo Pakkoda - Valaipoo pakora - Plantain flower fritters - Snack recipes - Appetizers recipe - Tea time snack

I love crunchy pakora esp Onion. Since my 1st son doesn't eat any onion, (without grinding) I seldom do onion Pakora. The other time I tasted Valaipoo Pakkoda at my friends place and it tasted almost same as onion (even though not exactly same. I kind of liked it) I wanted to try it out. I tried it once sometime ago and it tasted bitter. So I called her after a long time and asked about it. She said that I should use young flower to get nice a taste. So this week when I visited Serangoon I saw fresh Valaipoo. I bought it without any hesitation. It came out pretty good. So make sure you use the young and Fresh Plantain flower / Valaipoo.

calzone - Whole wheat Calzone - Snack Recipe - Kids friendly Snacks - Baking Recipes - Eggless Baking

When I saw this recipe on the internet / in few blogs it sounded more like Pizza pockets or Naan with yeast. I am a little vary of using Yeast in my recipes. I had a couple of total flops with yeast esp with dry yeast. Most of the time I buy bottle of yeast and leave it without use for a while and it dies... Now we started to get small sachets of yeast so it is a very convenient way of using it. Since kids are at home I wanted to try this for their evening snack. I used 50% whole wheat and 50% maida (all purpose flour). You can use full all purpose flour. Also you can add more vegetables like Broccoli, Tomatoes etc...

Red Pumpkin Dosa - Parangikai dosai recipe - Parangikai dosa recipe - Healthy dosa recipe - breakfast, dinner recipe

Yet another Vegetable dosa.. This dosa is really with a mix of flavour. I was postponing trying this recipe as I thought Parangikai would give some sweetness to the dish as now days my kids are fond of sweet dishes for a meal (they are ok to try a little but not for a full meal). However I had pumpkin in the fridge and was really forced to find option to deplete it . So I decided to spice it up with Red chillies hoping that it would really make this dish really spicy. To my surprise it turned out to be really good
