Mushroom n Mint Ragi Adai

Everyone knew that Breakfast is an important meal of a day, so lots of nutritious menu's has to be included to make our self healthy and fit. My today's recipe is also a healthy filling breakfast which has mushrooms in it. Mushroom, a low calorie content vegetable has lots of nutritious value which is used in stir fry, gravy, briyani, sandwiches etc... Actually lots of delicious starters and main courses can be prepared using this. My mom never tasted mushrooms so I prepared pepper mushroom fry for her long back, from that she became a big fan of mushrooms but she never tries at home. So whenever she comes here I make sure to prepare mushrooms for her. And yesterday for a change, I made a twist by adding mushrooms in Ragi Adai and served it for her. The taste was very different from the regular adai and she loved it. Addition of mint also enhanced the flavor of it. Ragi is also equally very good for health as it contains fiber and helps to lower the cholesterol. Ragi is also best for weight control, diabetes and for cooling the body heat. Perfect breakfast to start a healthy day.

Ingredients :
  • 1 Cup Ragi Flour
  • 1 Onion, Finely chopped
  • 2 Green chillies, finely chopped
  • Handful of pudina leaves, finely chopped
  • 4-5 Mushrooms, finely chopped
  • Salt to taste
  • Water for kneading

Method :

Finely chop the onion, green chillies and pudina /  mint leaves or chop them together using chopper.

Measure one cup of ragi flour in a bowl.
Add the finely chopped onions, green chillies and mint leaves.

Now add the finely chopped mushrooms and salt.

Sprinkle water little by little and knead to prepare dough.

Divide the dough and make balls.
Heat dosa pan and smear oil.
Simmer the flame, place the ball on the tawa and slowly tap the dough to form Adai shape.

Smear oil and cook for 2 minutes.
Flip the other side and cook again.
Once done, remove from flame and serve.

Serving Options :

Serve Ragi Adai 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 ;)

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.
