Green tomato puliyodharai

I have subscribed to vaah chef recipes! And this week i received a mail . The recipe was green tomato puliyodharai! I hadn’t heard about such recipe before and nor i have tasted green tomatoes !

I thought i should try the recipe soon and luckily i found green tomatoes in the nearby shop and picked up 1/2 kg! It was 27 bucks! Quite expensive! Nevertheless i had to try this!

I wanted to try this the OPOS way but i didn’t know how these green tomatoes taste or behave so i had to do it normally to see if i like it or not!

RECIPE COURTESY : VAAH CHEF SANJAY THUMMA

So here is what i did!

Chopped 4 tomatoes ! Chopped each tomato into 6 pieces ! That size !

In a kadai , added 3 tbsp groundnut oil , 1/2 tsp mustard , 4 chopped dry red chillies, 1 tsp urad dal , 1 tsp channa dal , 1/2 tsp jeera , 2 sprigs curry leaves , 1 slit green chilli and saute well ! Add 1/2 tsp turmeric powder and 1/8 tsp asafoetida and saute for 2 minutes ! Add 1.5 tsp salt .

Now mix 2 tbsp tamarind paste with 1/2 cup water and add it to the kadai ! Or 1/2 cup tamarind water made from a lemon sized tanarind and let it boil .

Add 2 tbsp coarsely ground peanuts to this and cook till it thickens.

After it thickens add the tomatoes and cook in such a way that it’s cooked but it’s not soft! You should see whole pieces! It shouldn’t become mushy! It should be crunchy!

Cooked yet crunchy tomatoes below!

Now take 2.5 cups of cooled cooked rice and mix it to this tomato paste!

I used measuring cups 1 cup = 240/250 ml

Yummiest puliyogara ready!!

It was so spicy typical andhra style but i loved it!!! 😍😍😍

Lipsmacking puliyodharai ready!!! I am gonna make it regularly!!

Thanks to vaah chef 🙏🏻😍

Instant Ragi dosai

We had a packet of sprouted ragi flour at home. Though we wanted to make different recipes using the flour we forgot about it ! Suddenly thought why not try instant dosa and started searching for the recipe in the net. Lot of recipes needed 30 mins resting time but we wanted it a bit early!

So finally ended up choosing the recipe from sharmis passion ! Such an easy and a fantastic recipe!

Please use measuring cups to get the exact result! 1 cup = 240/250 ml

Here is what i did

In a bowl add 1 cup sprouted ragi flour , 1/4 cup rice flour , 1 tsp cumin seeds, 1 green chilli finely chopped and 1/2 tsp salt . Mix everything well .

Then add 2 cups water and mix well. Rest it for 15 minutes.

Heat an iron tawa so well that if you sprinkle water , you get the woosh sound!

Then Make the flame medium and pour the batter from the outer edge and towards the inner edge like how you do for rava dosa! Make sure you don’t pour it again and again ! Else you will end up getting a thick dosa!

Here i used a technique suggested by my opos friend tazin to pour the batter ! I.e i used a tumbler to pour the batter . It was so easy and non messy!

Pour oil all over the sides and let it cook in medium flame till you see the sides coming out itself .

Then flip it the other side cook and remove it!

Serve it with chutney and sambar. Yummy ragi dosa ready!
