Someday's i would not like to make two or three dishes for lunch and want to come out of kitchen soon with less work. tamarind rice, chitranna, vangi bath, arisi paruppu sadham are all the one's that i make to free me.
well the next day i cant do the same, literally i cant survive without sambhar and poriyal. may be genetically my tummy is trained like that:)

Carrot cake, i love this cake, as each piece is full with goodness of carrot. i tried this cake with wheat flour long back and loved it. this time i tried it with all purpose flour(maida). this time the cake was soft and turned out moist and good. but i recommend you to try with wheat flour, which makes the cake super healthy cake.

Nankhatai is a cookie, famous in pakistan and in india. Nankhatai is a basic eggless cookie made with clarified butter(ghee). When Bina posted her nankhatai recipe on daily tiffin, i tried it immediately and fell in love with these cookies, but it took too long (2 years) to post here.

I always stock up this podi, while i was in boarding school, which will help to swallow the hard idli's. even at home, our typical breakfast would be two idli's with pottukadalai paruppu podi. We used to have two different podi's at home, one is this mildly spiced pottukadalai podi for the kid and the other is spicy idli milagaai podi for adults. Pottukadalai podi is me and my son's favourite podi. we have it with hot idli's or with hot rice and ghee.
Lunch with carrot beans poriyal, cabbage poriyal, rasam and 2 portions of pottukadalai podi sadham

Maravalli kizhangu / Tapioca is a seasonal root. My Dad used to tell that, maida is obtained from this root. even i learned from web that sago(javvarisi) and arrowroot are obtained from this veggie. anyway i am not sure about all this. At home mom used to steam this kizhangu and give for us with sugar.
