Kara Chutney Recipe | Tomato Chutney(without Coconut) for Idli/Dosa | Hotel Style Red Chutney For Idli

Kara Chutney Recipe
Kara Chutney or Hotel Style Red Chutney is one quick & easy to make chutney that pairs well with many South Indian Tiffin recipes like Idli/Dos, Pongal, Chapathi, Paniyaram, Adai, etc., This Chutney tastes similar to the hotel red chutney, mildly tangy and spicy chutney without coconut. It requires only few basic ingredients and can make it in a jiffy. This is one of my favorite chutney and I love it with hot Idlis and Paniyaram. The color of the chutney depends on the variety of tomato used.

Mango Popsicle Recipe | Easy Fruit Popsicle | Mango Summer Recipe Ideas!

Mango Popsicle Recipe
Today I am here with an another easy, yummy kids friendly summer treat recipe, Mango Popsicle. I love mangoes in any form and if it is a chilled treat like Mango Milkshake, Mango Lassi, Mango Kulfi or Mango popsicle is my most favorite of all. I have already shared the Mango Kulfi/Mango creamsicle recipe and this time tried simple fruit popsicle with mango puree. This popsicle also doesn't require more ingredients just 2 or 3 ingredients is needed to make Mango Popsicle. Nothing can beat the homemade fresh fruit popsicle.
 Recipe is simple to make but I find it hard to take pictures of this Mango popsicle. It started melting soon, no matter temperature is hot or cold. I have seen many popsicle pictures showing nice and smooth texture of popsicle but I couldn't able to click one like that. May be next time will try to present fruit pop with neat pictures. Now off to the recipe...

Palak Puri(Poori) Recipe | Spinach Puri

Palak Puri Recipe
Poori is a deep fried flat bread that can be prepared using whole wheat flour & APF. Poori, Batura are my kids most favorite tiffin items but I rarely make it for them. Even though pooris are easy to make, I am lazy to do deep fry stuffs and will cook only to feed blog.  But the things are changing now, as my kids listing the menu to cook what today and what they like to have. And often Poori will be in their list, so this time it is Palak Puri/Spinach Puri. The little one was so much excited to see green colored puris and he loved it a lot. I also prepared Palak Rasam with the left over palak puree(I used a big bunch of palak to make puree) and that was super hit more than this palak puri. I wanted to make it again to share here as it tasted so good and healthy too.
Sometimes the simple things will turn out great in the kitchen and this palak puri is one such recipe. The color and flavor sure pleases everyone. For palak puree, I prepared the same way I used to do for Palak Paneer but you can also simply use the blanched spinach to make simple puree and mix it with wheat flour and make dough. I like to mildly spice up the puree with some ginger, garlic and green chilli. Here you go.,

Pressure Cooker Chicken Biryani
Easy and simple way of making Chicken Biryani using Pressure Cooker / Pressure cooker chicken Biryani recipe with step by step photos. At home, everyone loves Biryani/Pulao, at least once in a week or once in 10 days I cook Biryani or Pulao for them. Chicken Biryani is my most favorite of all and even my kids love it a lot. I usually prefer simple and one pot recipes on weekends and I very rarely make Dum Biryani or Layered Biryani. One pot cooking is not only easy also it saves
time spending in the kitchen especially during weekends. Pressure cooker Chicken biryani is a simple version of biryani with great taste and flavor.
As chicken does not take more time to cook,this whole cooking process takes 30 minutes or less time. A complete meal in 30 minutes or less. Here, I used 1 cup coconut milk but you can skip or replace it with yogurt or chicken stock or simply cook with water. Coconut milk enhances the taste and flavor also using chicken or meat stock/broth gives rich flavor to the dish. I have already share Chicken Biryani using Yogurt recipe and today lets see the easy pressure cooker method using coconut milk.

Oats Paniyaram Recipe | Easy Oats Paniyaram Using Idli Batter | Left over Idli Batter Recipe Ideas

Oats Paniyaram Recipe
Oats paniyaram is an Instant recipe that can be prepared using some left over idli/dosa batter. This oats paniyaram is a healthy, yummy and filling dish that can be served for breakfast, dinner or a perfect after school snack for kids. Here, I used store bought oat flour but you can make it home easily by grinding the rolled oats or quick cooking oats in blender and add it to the recipe. It is good to include oats and other whole grains in your daily meal. Whole grains are rich in fiber and low in calories and also they helps to reduce blood cholesterol and aids in good digestion. I use oats, millets, legumes and lentils in my daily cooking along with veggies.
Oats Paniyaram is one such healthy recipe with great taste. To make it even more tasty and crispy I also added some semolina/sooji/rava and rice flour to the batter. This oats paniyaram is not only my kids' favorite V also loved it a lot. If you don't have paniyam pan/Appam pan or Aebleskiver pan no worries, you can use your tawa/griddle or any wide pan and make it as thick pancake or Oats Oothappam. I tried that too, oats oothappam turned out soft and yummy. Now off to the recipe.
