Dhokla is my family's most favorite snack..hmm.. Actually, more than a snack, I should say, its a breakfast meal in my home. Healthy, tasty and very filling along with a cup of green tea. Generally dhokla is prepared using Besan flour but till now, I had tried it with three varieties of diet friendly ingredients.Will post soon !
My today's recipe is a diet friendly version of Gujarati snack prepared using Gluten free yellow corn flour. Yellow corn flour is nothing but maize flour and it is called as Makacholam in Tamil and Makki in hindi. Gluten free yellow corn flour is easily available in most of the super markets. This can be served as snack or breakfast too along with Mint - Curd chutney.

Ingredients :

2 Cups Gluten free Yellow Corn flour / Makkacholam flour
1 Tbsp Bansi Rava
A pinch of Turmeric powder
1/2 Cup Curd
Salt to taste
2 Tsp Sugar

1/2 to 3/4 Cup Water
2 Tsp Olive oil 
1 Tsp Mustard seeds
2 Green chillies, Finely chopped
Handful of Curry leaves
1/2 Cup of Water 
A pinch of salt 
1 Tsp Sugar ( I have used Demerara sugar )
1 Tsp Lemon juice

Method :

Mix Yellow corn flour along with Bansi rava,Turmeric powder, Curd, Salt, Sugar and Olive oil in a large pan.

Add water little by little, mix well and prepare batter without any lumps.

The consistency batter should not be too thick or too thin.

Grease a wide pan with oil and keep aside.

Add eno to the corn flour batter and mix well. ( Mix eno only at the time you are going to steam ).

Pour the batter to the greased pan and steam it for 25 - 30 mins in a medium flame or till the skewer comes clean.

Once done, remove from the flame, cool it for 5 to 10 minutes and then invert to a plate.

Heat oil in a pan and add mustard seeds.

Once it starts spluttering, add finely chopped green chillies followed by curry leaves, water, salt and sugar.

Add the lemon juice and let it boil.

Pour seasoning / tadka water on the dhoklas and serve.

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.
