Time really flies ! So far completed 90 diet friendly recipes and only, 10 more days left to complete my healthy challenge.. Here comes my today's healthy meal - Tomato bhath using wheat rava. Tomato bhath is a tasty and easy meal which can served for breakfast or dinner along with raita. To make it diet friendly, I have used wheat rava ( big / mota ) in this recipe which can also be substituted with Bansi rava, regular wheat rava or Bombay rava.

1/2 Tsp Jeera / Cumin seeds
1 Tbsp Channa dal 
A pinch of Hing
1 Onion, Finely chopped 
4 Green chillies, chopped
2 Springs of Curry leaves
3 Big Tomatoes, Finely chopped 
1 Tsp Ginger, Finely chopped
Less than 1/4 Tsp Turmeric powder 
Salt to taste
Mint leaves for garnishing

Method :

Heat oil in a pan and add mustard seeds.

Once it starts spluttering, add jeera seeds followed by channa dal and hing.

Add green chillies followed by ginger and curry leaves.

Add finely chopped onion and saute till the color of onion changes to light brown.

Now add turmeric powder followed by chopped tomatoes and salt.

Saute till the tomatoes turns soft and mushy.

Add the measured water and let it boil.

Add the wheat rava and mix well.

Cook it for 5 minutes or till the water reduces.

Simmer the flame and cook it for another 5 minutes.

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.
