Faluche Du Nord

Faluche is a traditional bread in the Nord- Northern region of France. It is usually flat in shape and soft with white crust on top which is used for making sandwiches. It can also be served with butter and Jam or Nutella.
Learned this recipe from Jan month Home Bakers Challenge  but got an opportunity to try these yummy breads only yesterday. All these days, I never knew that adding only salt to the yeast, slow downs the process. I was worried when the dough did not rise in an expected time but after reading few reviews about yeast, I waited for another couple of hours and it worked perfectly. So approx. it took 4 hours for my dough to rise and patience is more important while working with yeast :)


  • 2+1/4 cups All purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup Water
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1 tsp Active Dry yeast
  • 2 tbsp Olive oil
  • Extra flour for dusting & rolling
  • 1 tsp Oil (for brushing the top)

Method :

  • Mix yeast and salt in a Luke warm water and keep it aside for 5-7 minutes or until it turns frothy.
  • Add flour in a large bowl and add the yeast mixture slowly along with olive oil.
  • Knead everything to a smooth and soft dough.
  • Transfer the dough to a greased bowl and let it sit it for 1 and 1/2 hours.
  • Remove the dough, sprinkle some flour in a working surface and roll the dough as a large disc with enough thickness.
  • Using round shaped cutter, cut and make round shaped discs.
  • Place it in a flour dusted baking sheet and let it set for another hour (1 hr).
  • Pre-heat oven at 180 degree C.
  • Brush the top of faluche with the olive oil.
  • Sprinkle some flour on the top and bake it for 10-15 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven and serve.

Serving Options:

Serve with Butter, Jam or Nutella.

Note :
Faluche should have white crust so do not bake it for long time.

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.
