Green Peas Idli

Green peas idly

Recently  when we went to a restaurant i noticed chilli idly as the days special item. out of curiosity i ordered it. even the person who took the order said me, that its newly introduced and i should try it for sure! I thought it will do for me, so i did not even think of placing order for the other items. So when i saw my chilli idli coming in a small bowl, i was clean bold! It was just 5 mini idli's coated with milagaai podi.

Podi Idly ~ in a different way

This Podi idly is more for adults, as it has onions and spicy podi spread over the idly. When i saw this podi idly recipe on a TV show, i instantly tried it on the same day. We all found this a different and  a tasty way to eat idly, than always opting for chutneys as sides.

Methi Matar Paneer ~ white gravy

This was the long break i took in blogging. I slowly detached myself from this place. I should not have done that, but blame my least interest in cooking. i very rarely tried new dishes in this break. but my blogging aspiration was always there in me. i kept telling me that i should start again. and here i am. Today i want to thank my two friends Sharmilee and Nirmala. They both bothered and asked me to resume blogging. I Owe you both a tight Hug! even my Son asked me to blog. He is proud of me for blogging and keeps checking the site, for the number of visitors and their countries. this way he could recognize few countries flag!
