Punjabi Dal Curry.



Dal is something which is relished with roti all over India. This is one of my favorite dal curry, it is simple and easy to make.

You will need:
Sambar Dal: 1/2 cup.
Turmeric powder: 1 pinch.
Chilly powder: 1 pinch.
Asafoitida: A pinch.
Coriander leaves.
1/4 onion chopped.
1/2 tsp Jeera.
2 whole red chilly or chilly flakes.
Salt.

Method:
Pressure cook dal with a pinch of turmeric and red chilly powder and add water and salt to it and bring it to boil. In another pan heat ghee or refined oil, put in jeera and wait for it to crack,  add 2 whole red chilly split, chopped onion, asafoitida and pour it into the dal. Garnish with chopped coriander leaves. Serve hot with roti.
Note: Sometimes I add a tomato along with the dal. You can also add chopped lauki, ash gourd etc along with the dal.

Puff Pastry Recipe - Homemade Puff Pastry

Puff pastry recipe: Homemade puff pastry in 15 minutes, can you believe that??  Bakery style Puff pastry is so easy to make at home that you will never buy greasy bakery puffs. The best thing about this puff pastry recipe is that; it does not need any refrigeration (chilling the dough) or any other so called difficult method, you may see when you google for "puff pastry"

Easy puff pastry can be made with the most basic ingredients and in under 15 minutes.

Back in the 80's amma started making puffs at home; which my two brothers and myself used to enjoy a lot. She mostly used to make this for special occasions; like when a friend dropped in or when we long for something bakery style.

Fast-forward to 2014; my daughter, Nidhi loves puffs and I have been asking amma to teach me how to make and somehow things did not work out when I last visited her. Right now she is visiting us here in Calicut and I coaxed and buttered her to show me how to make puffs.

Vattayappam / Steamed Rice Cake / Kerala Style

Vattayappam is Kerala's own fermented SteamedRice Cake. One of the healthiest traditional tea time snack with almost no oil. It is popular in the Christian communities of Kerala, though not much popular in North Kerala/ Malabar.

I usually make it as an after school snack as it is very healthy and filling for kids.

Thyroid Diet Plan For Weight Loss

thyroid diet for weight loss, sharing a vegetarian full day thyroid friendly diet plan which not only helps you to lose weight but also nourish your thyroid gland.

banana is an integral part of thyroid health and it is one fruit that is available all through the year round in Kerala and sadly we have instilled this myth in our minds that banana is FATTENING!! Banana on the other hand is packed with nutrients and is rich in potassium, vitamin B6, and iodine!! yes, they contain iodine and so does carrots!! and can help nourish your thyroid cells. And ladies, if you are over 45 and nearing menopause then you need them in your diet and younger ladies if you are pregnant or lactating then you need them more! Did you know that without adequate supply of iodine in your diet you are more vulnerable to osteoporosis and diabetes?

whole grains are also rich in iodine source and the reason why I included whole wheat roti (homemade, of course) and poha (flattened rice) in this plan. I have divided …
