Idli Milagai Podi Recipe | Homemade Idli Podi | Idli Podi | Chutney Podi for Idli & Dosa

Making Idli Podi at home is one of my dreams come true. I felt really excited and proud when I made my first batch of Idli podi. When I was in the hostel, mom used to send me bottles of homemade idli podi and I am addicted towards the podi that she makes. After mom, Vanitha akka follows her recipe and sends me a lot of Idli podi whenever dad visits Chennai. After coming to Sydney, I wanted to try my hands in making this podi. However, my first attempt was a failure and I thought of asking dad to send me the podi from home. During my recent India trip, I asked Vanitha akka to prepare it for me and I was with her when she made it. I got the confidence to try it again and I prepared it soon after I came from the vacation. It came out super awesome and I am here with the recipe. This version is simple with very few ingredients and I will be posting another version of Idli Milagai podi soon. Let us move on to the recipe:

Sprouted Green Gram & Chicken Sandwich Recipe | Chicken & Sprouts Sandwich | Chicken Sandwich with Sprouted green Gram | Sandwich Recipes

When I was in Paris during our outings, I often relish on the cold chicken sandwich made with Baguette. It tastes so delicious with the creamy mayonnaise and the chilled chicken. At home, I always grill or toast the sandwich. When I was thinking of making a sandwich with sprouted green gram, I thought of making it as a cold sandwich. It came out really awesome and we all liked it. You can make it either cold or grill it and both tastes equally good. Check out my other sandwiches that I have posted earlier.

How to Sprout Green Gram at home | Sprouted Green Gram |Sprouted Mung Bean

A few months back during our usual phone conversation, my mom-in-law told me that she is tempering the sprouted green gram for the mid-afternoon snack. She told it is very tasty and it has a lot of health benefits. She explained to me the procedure of sprouting since I was not aware of it and asked me to try it for Happy. After a week, I tried it at home and I was very much excited when I saw the sprouts. From that day I started exploring many recipes using sprouted green gram and I have a few recipes in my drafts as well. However, before sharing those recipes, I wanted to share a post for beginners like me about sprouting the green gram at home. Hence, I was delaying the recipes that I have in hand. This weekend when I sprouted the green gram, I captured the steps and I am here with the preparation steps:

Potato Fry Recipe | Urulaikilangu Varuval | Aloo Fry | South Indian Style Potato Roast

Weekends are always busy for us and if I think of posting something on the blog, mostly it will not work. Today I found some time when Happy and Jany were busy with the swimming practice and I am here with the recipe of easy to make potato roast. Potato is one of my all time favorite vegetable. However, I don't make it quite often thinking it causes gas and bloating. Recently, Happy started liking the potato roast and hence we are indulging on the potato frequently. I add a lot of asafoetida and garlic for easy digestion. The potato roast that I am posting today goes very well with Sambhar rice and Curd rice. I use the same roast potato as the filling for breakfast sandwich if I make it in excess. Let us move on to the preparation steps:

Paneer Kheer Recipe | Paneer Payasam | Chenna Kheer | Payasam Recipes

Finally, I am clearing all my very old posts from the draft. This post is almost two years old and I made it when I was living in Navallur, Chennai. Hence, the quality of the picture is not too good. Actually, on that day I was planning to make Kalakand and got the ingredients ready. However, when few unexpected guests turned out for that day's lunch, I made this paneer kheer as a dessert along with the lunch. It was a super hit and the guests liked it a lot. It is a simple and easy to make dessert with very few ingredients. Do follow my homemade paneer recipe and prepare fresh paneer at home for this payasam. Check out my Payasam/Kheer collection too.

Mushroom & Spinach Sandwich Recipe | Mushroom & Spinach in White Sauce Sandwich | White Sauce Veggie Sandwich

Because of the sudden change in the Sydney weather, I was down with flu and cold for the past few days. Hence, I was not able to post anything on the blog and I did a very minimal cooking as well. Today's post is a simple and healthy sandwich, which we can make it for our morning breakfast. The sandwich can be served with any smoothie, boiled egg and fruits for a filling and healthy weekday breakfast. I made this mushroom spinach sandwich with white sauce and hence it is a little heavy and cheesy. If you don't prefer white sauce, then you can add the sauteed veggies alone as the filling. Let us move on to the recipe. Check out the below-listed sandwiches too and plan your breakfast.
