Horse gram - Spring Onion Leaves Paratha / Diet Friendly Recipe - 43 / #100dietrecipes

Spicy and flavorful roti using horse gram and spring onion leaves is an excellent option to serve for any meal of the day along with low fat curd raita or diet friendly curry or kurma. Check out my diet friendly series to get more options for side dish varieties. The finely chopped spring onion leaves and red chilli are added along with pav bhajji masala to the flour and combined well to form a smooth dough. Rest the dough for sometime, so that the flavors blends well with the roti. I have used fresh red chilli in this recipe which can also be substituted with the regular green ones but adjust spicy level according to taste bud.

Ingredients :

1 Cup Wheat Flour 
1/2 Cup Horse gram flour 
1/2 Cup Spring onion leaves, finely chopped
1 Fresh red chilli, Finely chopped ( Green chilli can also be used ) 
Less than 1/4 Tsp Turmeric powder
3/4 Tsp Pav bhajji masala 
Salt to taste 
1 Tsp Olive oil 
1/2 - 3/4 Cup Water ( Adjust accordingly )

Method :

Take wheat flour in a large bowl along with horsegram flour, turmeric powder, pav bhajji masala powder, finely chopped spring onion leaves, salt and finely chopped red chilli.

Add water little by little to the flour and combine together to form a dough.

Add olive oil and knead well to get a smooth dough.

Cover it and keep aside for 15 - 30 minutes.

Divide the dough into 5 - 6 equal sized balls.

Take one ball and roll it into roti shape using rolling pin.

Heat tawa ( use non stick to reduce oil ) and place the rolled roti on it.

Cook on both the sides by brushing very little oil and remove from the flame.

Repeat the process for the remaining dough and serve hot.

Serving Options :

Serve hot with raita or kurma.

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 ;)

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.
