Haleem Dosa

I never get bored of trying interesting recipes from the leftover foods. The variations in food gives an immense pleasure while tasting it. And today's post is about my recent dosa which is topped with leftover Haleem. 

Haleem is a very popular dish which is prepared during Ramzan season and it is basically an Arabic dish. This is mostly served in the evening as it gives an instant energy during fasting. Haleem is a high calorie dish which is made of meat/ chicken / beef but nowadays lots of improvisation is done and varieties of haleem is available in markets like Veg haleem, Emu haleem and Fish Haleem. 

As it contains loads of ghee in it, I feel very heavy and completing a bowl of haleem is a big task for me. So, I wanted to try them in a different n easy way to complete my leftover Haleem and ended up with preparing Haleem Dosa. Very easy to prepare and as it contains ghee, the dosa was crispy and tasty. Sprinkled pepper on top of dosa to make it spicy. Personally I enjoyed eating this delicious dosa as such with no side dish and It was yum yum for me :) It can also be served with chicken or mutton curry.

Do you have leftover Haleem at home ?
Rush into kitchen and try this flavorful crispy Dosas ! I was very generous in spreading the haleem on top of dosa, So prepared 4 dosas with the given measurements. Haleem Dosa can also be improvised by adding tomatoes, onions, coriander leaves...etc... 

Ingredients :

  • 2 Cups Haleem
  • 4 Eggs
  • Dosa Batter, as needed
  • 2 Tbsp Pepper powder
  • Oil, to smear 

Method :

  • Heat Dosa pan and take one ladle of dosa batter.
  • Spread it in a circular motion and spread 1 - 1/2 tbsp of haleem on top of it in a simmer flame.
  • Meanwhile, break one egg and beat it with a fork.
  • Pour the beaten egg over the haleem and sprinkle pepper powder on it.
  • Cook it for couple of minutes and then slowly flip the other side to cook.
  • Once done, remove from the flame and repeat the process for remaining Haleem.
  • Serve Hot.

Serving Options :

Serve hot with chicken curry or Mutton curry.

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.
