Akki roti using paneer and nuts

Its been long time i prepared akki roti. When i was in hyderabad, my neighbour(from karnataka) used to prepare her famous state dish every week in her home and  used to serve for me too with lovely coconut chutney.. Preparing akki roti is not so easy for me coz she used to tap the dough directly in hot tawa and prepare very thin and perfect round shape roti's. Those are lovely and memorable days, i used to learn lots of karnataka recipes from her and try out at home...and that too newly married, imagine the risk that  my husband took ;)
Tried this akki roti for yesterday dinner, very nutritious and healthy one for kids....I have seen so many kids of my cousin's who don't like nuts....You can try adding nuts this way too so that they get their nutrients in  diet...My memories of hyderabad made me to try this paneer n nuts akki roti :)

ok lets start our akki roti now.....

Ingredients :

1 Cup Paneer, grated
1 Onion, finely chopped
2 Green chillies
5 Cashews
5 Badams
2 Tbsp Groundnut, roasted
2 Cup Rice flour
Salt to taste
1/2 Cup Pudina and Coriander leaves

Method :

Grind Badams, cashews and groundnuts into fine powder, keep aside.
Coarsely grind green chillies, coriander leaves and pudina.
Now mix all ingredients and make dough by adding little water and oil.
Take handful of dough and make a ball.
Heat tawa, smear oil and rub it. Now place the ball in middle of the tawa and tap them gently to make thin round shaped roti.
Cook in medium flame.
Smear little oil. wait till one side get cooked and Slowly turn the roti's other side to get cooked.
Once done, remove from flame and serve hot with coconut chutney.

Sankara Meen Kuzhambu / Red Snapper Fish Curry

Tangy and aromatic flavor of the curry along with a delicious taste of fish, when served with hot rice gives a joyous feeling for a FISH LOVER like me ;) This four letter word makes me drool any time and love it in any form of cuisine.
Generally Meen Kuzhambu is served with hot rice but it tastes more delicious and yummy when served with Hot steaming Idlis for the next day. The more the time, fish swims in the curry, the taste increases. Flavor of the Fish gets blend well with the curry and enhances the taste and aroma, when served it for the next day. 
Sankara fish has its unique taste and flavor and personally, I feel it gives delicious taste when prepared as kuzhambu than fry. Even few Restaurants started serving "Nethi Vacha meen Kuzhambu and Idli" in their menu.  

Are you a Fish Lover ?? Then get ready to Drool ;)

Ingredients :

1/2 Kg Sankara Fish / Red Snapper Fish, Cleaned and Washed2 Big Onions, Finely chopped2 Medium sized Tomatoes, Finely Chopped3 Green chillies, sliced

Ekadesi Kali

Happy Ekadesi Friends!

Vaikunta Ekadesi  is celebrated every year in the month of December or January and particularly on the 11th waxing moon that falls in the Margazhi month. Early morning of this day “the gate to Lord Vishnu 's inner Sanctum” is opened and in tamil we used to call it as “sorga vassal”. And according to our family culture, we used to fast on this  particular day by taking only tiffin items ( No rice allowed). Along with that, Kali is made as offering for god. And the next day of ekadesi is called as Dhuvadesi, on which fast is broken with the preparation of rice and curry with 21 vegetables. My mom prepares karakuzhambu with 21 veggies and according to my in laws place we prepare sambhar with 21 veggies.
