Wheat Rava Idli

I saw 'Ennakul Oruvan' tamil movie this week end. Its not the old one of Kamal Hassan but the one featuring Siddharth, although both bear the same title. I liked it a lot. It was conceptually similar to 'Inception' but very well screen played for the tamil audience. It was a bold attempt and one such film which takes on the fascination of movie buffs to a level ahead. Though during the course of the movie, at times.... we feel tired.... but the climax was so neat and cleanly narrated to convince and park itself in the good movies shelf of cinema library. Hats of to the director for such an attempt. 
And by the way, did you watch the ICC semi-finals between the Black caps and South Africans? What a fight!!!!!!!!!! It was heartening to see Villiers shed tears on the ground as he gave his all in that fielding.... Yes sometimes... hard work always doesn't pay off!! Lets move on to the recipe.....

Flaxseed Moong Dal Bok Choy

I'm neither a cricket follower nor a fan. But yesterday's match.... especially the after match ceremony has made me slightly inclined towards the game. What a modesty was displayed by MS Dhoni when he said that the catch which made him have a big smile was because it was a fluke that he landed with that catch. He could have easily taken the credit for himself instead of admitting that it was a a surprising piece of luck though that wicket was badly needed to bring a turn to the match. Hats off to the Indian captain!!!!!!
OK now lets move on to this recipe. This is one interesting way to intake Bok Choy in an Indian way. Rather than always making sambhar with dal, this could be an interesting re placer....

Tofu Beans Bhurji

Tofu..... as I already said has become a weekly ingredient as a replacement for paneer. I am on a hunt for new Tofu recipes and this is one such find!!! As you all know, Tofu does not have a taste of its own.... it is quite bland, but when accompanied with spices and other veggies it goes on very well. This is a normal bhurji but since I had beans in hand I added them along.... For the first look its similar to an egg bhurji and also close to it in taste... So, lets move on to the recipe.....

Greens Stir-fry

Nowadays, I think I'm becoming obsessed by the term 'healthy'..... but must really get out of it. Not in any other sense but just be particular to have it in a corner of my mind rather than clouding my mind entirely with it. Its good to eat good food... but coining it with the term 'healthy' rather makes it irritating at times.... so I've decided to eat good and keep quiet, as everyone knows whats good for them and whats not.... So turning back to today's recipe.... its the greens stir-fry. I usually get these Asian greens only during the summer season here. Though plucking off the leaves might become the most difficult job as the end of the season approaches, as they start shrinking in size indicating this might be the last bunch you might have for this season!!!! But when you dump them in the kadai, the rustic flavour it emanates pays off for all the time spent plucking!

Kadai Tofu

I am an ardent fan of Paneer..... but when health issues popped in, there popped out a thought that paneer on a regular basis is not recommended. But once in a way...... its a big OKAY (atleast for me!!!!!) After googling a replacement for paneer, I found TOFU which had similar look and feel of paneer but it weighed heavily on the health basis though there was a certain amount of compromise on its taste. This is a paneer recipe in which tofu took its place.... Try it out and you will never regret it!!!!

Palak Pulao with Sweet Potato

Spinach comes in on our menu very often. Due to its repetition, I always surf in for recipes with it. I came across this one which interested me. After a few additions and deletions I arrived at my Palak Pulao with Sweet potato. The taste was great and it was a wonderful way to push palak into everyone's tummy!!

Ragi Dosai & Capsicum Chutney

Yeh!!!!!!!!! This is my 100th post....... I'm happy for this..... Thanks to all those who are viewing my posts.... I always try regular recipes with healthy replacements and this is one such try. The Ragi dosai went along very well with the capsicum chutney and the combo has become a great hit at home. The dosai was more likely like the regular one but remember this is a healthy version.... a guilt-free one!!! So when something is healthy and exotic why should you long for anything else......
