Gluten Free Wheat Flour Pidi Kozhukattai / Diet Friendly Recipes - 20 / #100dietrecipes

Everyone must be familiar with a famous snack pidi kozhukattai, which is prepared using rice flour and my today's recipe is the healthiest version of pidi kozhukattai. I have used gluten free wheat flour to make it diet friendly but the same can also be prepared using wheat flour. Easy to prepare and perfect evening or mid - morning snack while dieting, which goes delicious with Roasted gram chutney or any spicy chutney. The onions and chillies are sauteed and combined with the gluten free wheat flour to form a dough and then, shaped into dumplings with a finger impression on top and steamed till it gets a glossy texture.

Ingredients :

1 Cup  Gluten Free Wheat Flour
1/4 Cup Water + 2 Tbsp Hot water
1 Big Onion, finely chopped
2 Green chillies, finely chopped
Few Curry leaves, finely chopped
1 Tbsp Ginger, Finely chopped
Salt to taste
2 Tsp Olive oil
1/2 Tsp Mustard seeds
1/2 Tsp Jeera / Cumin seeds
1 Tbsp Channa dal

Method :

Heat oil in a non stick pan and add mustard seeds.

Once it starts spluttering, add jeera / cumin seeds followed by the finely chopped ginger, green chillies and curry leaves.

Saute and add the finely chopped onion.

Saute till the color of onion turns into light brown, in a low flame and add the measured water followed by salt.

Let it boil and add the gluten free wheat flour little by little, by stirring constantly.

Mix well without any lumps, switch off the flame and transfer it to a bowl.

Knead the mixture to form a soft dough by sprinkling hot water.

Once done, divide the dough into 9 - 10 equal sized balls and keep aside.

Take one ball in your hand and press it to get a elongated shaped dumpling along with a finger impression on top.

Repeat the process for the remaining balls and steam it for 10 - 15 minutes or till the glossy texture appears on top, in a lightly greased pan.

Once done, switch off the flame and serve hot.

Serving Options :

Serve hot with Roasted gram chutney or any spicy 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.
