Traditional Poori Masala / Poori Masal / Poori Kizhangu

Restaurant menu  for breakfast starts with Idli ,Dosa ,Puri ,Vada , Pongal etc…. it goes like this…  If there is Poori then there should be Poori masala , this combination is fantastic. I do love my pooris with Kurmas as well as Coconut chutney . But hubby dear and  kid likes traditional side so I mostly go with this masal . You can also use this masala for making masala dosa or a stuffing for sandwich. Lets learn how to make traditional poori masala

தக்காளி சட்னி / Tomato Chutney

Tomato Chutney is a very delicious combo for Idlis and Dosas . Chutney recipes are staple side dishes for breakfast in South India and this is my mum’s version which I like most . I have already posted Onion Tomato Chutney without coconut , click on the link to check it . In this tomato chutney , my mum used to add a little coconut and that really enhances the taste . This is so easy to make and tastes wonderful .  Hope you all love this simple chutney . Lets see how to prepare it….

இட்லி–தோசை /How to make Idli–Dosa

This is a traditional South Indian item , mostly prepared daily in every household for breakfast or dinner . Every week I used to ground this batter. The batter should be nicely fermented to get soft Idlis . Click here to check how to prepare the Idli Dosa Batter . Usually I will prepare Idlis for the first few days . The freshly fermented batter gives nice soft idlis . Then will start making dosas . You can prepare idli dosas with the same batter . Just make the batter a bit loose while making dosas , the consistency should not be runny.   This post is specially for beginners and will be so helpful for them with step by step pictures .  Lets see the preparation….

மிளகாய் சட்னி / Red Chilli Chutney

Milagai chutney is a common South Indian side for tiffins . This really goes well with hot soft idlis and crispy dosas. Pearl onions / Sambar onions  are preferably used  but its so rare in my place so I used big onion . My mom generally don’t use onion and tomato to this spicy chutney and she grinds using a manual grinding stone ( ammikal ) . I too sometimes prefer without onion and tomato . In that case you should soak the chillies in hot  water for 10 mins and use some water to grind to a smooth paste . Sesame oil gives a nice flavour and is highly recommended as it reduces the spiciness . I love the combo of coconut chutney or sambar with this spicy side . Try this hot chutney with your idlis  , sure its a comforting side for all spicy lovers…
