Thakkali dosai recipe, Tomato dosa recipe

Tomato dosa
     I came to know that this variety of dosa can be made through one of my room mates Usharani, during my hostel days.I tasted the dosa and it was very similar to the dosa my mom makes just by grinding rice and fermenting it for the next day. And this dosa need not be fermented as tomato is there for tanginess! We all love this,family favourite. Sorry I could not click stepwise this time.

Cabbage paratha
       I tried this paratha for first time when my kid got cabbage as ‘Vegetable of the week’ in his school. This was perfect for his lunch box and he loved it a lot and brought back empty lunch box back homeApplause! I too loved the taste very much and this is sure going to be a regular item at home,as it makes me and my kiddo consume some vegetable! There are two versions of cabbage paratha,one is this version and the other is stuffed cabbage paratha,but I love this version as this is easy and mess free job at the early morning hurry buriesAt wits end… Do try this yourself,if not so far and you too will agree with me..

  4. rolledtoast

Notes:

  • I have tried both grating and chopping the cabbage,both comes out very nice,if you are grating the cabbage,one thing you have to be careful is with water quantity,takes very very less water.
  • Adding oil in the dough helps to make the parathas soft and rolling easy…You can add oil in the dough and reduce accordingly while cooking.
  • Ginger is very nice add to this paratha,so make sure you add it.
  • Refer side bar for the sambar powder recipe.

Serve with any kind of raita or even tastes great with curd and pickle.

PAPAYA HONEY SMOOTHIE

    I have never tried anything with papaya,just eat the fruit until I saw Bharathy’s papaya milk shake. I tried very soon after she posted.
