A Small Tutorial for Blogger's on Using Blogger Draft to make comment form appear below the post

When i started blogging, i wondered a lot on many of your blogs, like what is RSS. whatever i saw was an unsolved puzzle for me. later googling helped me to learn many stuffs. Today iam driven by some instinct in me to post a small tutorial that would help you out. If you already know about this..ignore it.

The feature iam gonna speak about is Blogger in Draft. This is under test and even we can use the features of this. so let's get started..

We login to our blog , with the screen that look like as shown below, with

In Blogger Draft, you can login thru clicking on here where you could see a screen like this.

after logging on, your dashboard will look like this...

On your top right corner of the screen, there will be a blue box, stating make blogger in draft as default blogger. you can check in the box, if you want to login always with blogger in draft.
there are many features on can explore there. the feature i used from blogger draft is my comment form. earlier if someone wants to comment on my post, a pop-up window will appear and it takes time to load the profile pictures of the blogger's who already commented. and we need to go under a test, to check whether we are robot's:)

so here in this new comment form feature in blogger draft, bloggers can comment easily without all those hassle's. The comment form will look like those of in wordpress blogs. try this for a change.

How to do:

1. Go to your Settings Tab

2. Select Your Comment's Sub Tab

3. Stop at the third bold heading...Comment Form Placement

4. Choose the Embedded below post (To see the preview of the comment form, scroll down this page and look at my comment form.)

5. Save it

6. Check the blog post which has comments. and check by posting a comment.

7. If you are not happy or if it is not working...continue the steps from 1 to 3 and select the pop-up window and save.

Hope this tutorial help's you my friends..If you really liked it just share a word with me.
You can also request for a tutorial on particular aspect here.

Carrot Thuvaiyal(Chutney) & Carrot Rice

My Mom used to prepare this thuvaiyal/chutney for us to make us eat the carrot atleast in this form. she also makes coconut thuvaiyal, which is my favourite one. the taste of it will stay on my tongue even after eating.

Coming to this Carrot Thuvaiyal/chutney, i prefer this Carrot Thuvaiyal along with Rasam and Pappad. it used to be my simple and light meal. also i prepare this thuvaiyal and mix it with Rice and pack it for my hubby lunch box.

Coming to the Ingredients:

Urad dall-1tbsp
Red chilli-2
Tamarind-Half-inch size
Oil-2 tsps
Mustard-half a tsp
Curry leaves-6


arrow_42 Peel the outer skin of the carrot and Grate them and keep it aside .

arrow_42 Now in a kadai add 1 tsp of oil. fry urad dall till it becomes golden color. also fry the red chilli's.

arrow_42 Add the fried urad, chilli and tamarind to the grated carrot and grind it into a thick coarse paste by adding little water and required salt. Grind it coarsely.

arrow_42 Now add 1tsp of oil in the kadai, add mustard seeds..when it crackles, add curry leaves and add the grinded paste to it.

arrow_42Fry it till the raw smell of the carrot leaves and the color changes to darker, when it starts sticking to kadai remove it from the flame.

It also Suits for Dosa's.

This can be mixed with it as carrot rice.. I just seasoned it with ghee fried cashews.

Semiya Upma

Semiya upma is my favourite break-fast, as it could be done in minutes, and also taste's yummy. On the other hand, i also love to have Rava Upma, but the thing is i feel sleepy on eating it. so i shifted from rava to cracked wheat rava.

Here is my Recipe...


Semiya-2 cups
Ghee 1 spoon
Green chilli-1
Dry Red Chilli-2
Oil- 2 spoons
Onion-1 (finely chopped)
Mustard- 1 spoon
Urad Dal- 1 spoon
Curry leaves-8
Water- 1 and half cup
Salt for taste.


arrow_42Fry the Semiya in a spoon of ghee for a minute or two,
till they get wrapped in ghee.keep them aside.

arrow_42In a kadai, heat 2 spoon's of oil. add the Mustard seeds, Urad dal, slitted green chilli, red chilli and Curry leaves.

arrow_42 Now add onions,salt and fry them well. when they are fried, add the semiya and mix well.

arrow_42Now add the water and let it boil. when it boils, add a spoon of ghee or oil and let the semiya cook.

arrow_42after cooking the semiya, close it with a lid and let it rest in the stove for 5 minutes.

You can add Carrot, beans, capsicum, peas to the upma.
