Variety dosas, idlis too are our favorite in breakfasts. Miss A loves Instant Oats Idli, Rava Idli and Instant Poha Idli so much that I even make these as her evening snack sometimes. She devours them with ghee, like always. So I casually told my hubby that it would be good if we had more instant idli recipes in hand so that it would be a change in taste buds for her. And as usual, he sat looking for recipe ideas and told me that people make Vermicelli Rava idlis too.
"It has been long you have not blogged a cake recipe", declared the husband. My last one was this rose flavored Jaggery cake and though there was this easy Chocolate Jaggery Brownie which I posted last month, he felt it had been very long. Okay! Maybe he was craving for some cakes. ;) So I asked him to look for some good recipes and who knew he would find this gem of a chocolate cake. Made with jaggery, wheat flour and banana, this cake is the healthiest chocolate cake you can ever bake and no doubt the yummiest as well!
Apart from being an ardent dosa lover, my hubby is a huge fan of fruit juices. Though I love juices too, my way of fruit intake mostly is eating them as they are, without juicing them up. Most juices need sieving which sieves the fiber in them. Also sugar is added to juices which makes it very unhealthy. So the healthiest way is to eat the fruits just like that. But what if you love juices? Yes, try and make them the healthy way. Like this Mango Tangy!
Pulao's are normally made with a whole lot of veggies in them. So how can this simple carrot pulao taste good? Simple, because it is filled with a mother's secret and most prized ingredient. Love, of course! Though my pulao tastes very close to what my mom makes, I can never get the exact taste due to the extra love she adds in all her dishes. Is it not the same with all moms?
Ever since I received many positive feedbacks for my Instant Wheat flour dosa, my hubby was giving me many instant dosa ideas. He went through older recipes and we kept discussing various combinations. Finally, I got this idea of combining oats and poha (Like my Oats Poha idlis ) and grinding it with rava istead of rice (which needs soaking).
