    Default Double Decker Idli - impress your family & friends!

    Make masala, fairly dry, quite spicy with potatoes, onion & tomatoes.

    In any greased aluminium mould, first place a layer of masala & over that pour idli batter.

    Steam for 5-7mtes.

    Cool & unmould.

    I used a ringmould & muffin tins.

    Friends, you may think that my presentation is 'bizarre'!
    This is the result of my watching the Master Chef Programme - Australia & India, faithfully!!

    Default Multigrain(Navadhanya) Upma - if in bread & roti, why not in upma??

    I used mainly whole lentils & not cereals. The photo shows the names of the ingredients.

    You can omit any one lentil or two, by choice.

    In navadhanyams, wheat & black til are also included. Though not shown in the photo, I dded them also, the next time I made the mix.

    Take equal amounts of all lentils & roast on a dry kadai till light brown. If on a low flame, you can roast them together.

    Cool & crush in a mixi, not too fine. Sieve with a rava sieve. The grains should be rava size.

    Follow the recipe as in
    Step By Step photos for Tiffins

    This takes 2 cups of water, unless you grind it fine. It is preferable to cook it in a vessel, inside the pressure pan. Afteer the first whistle, simmer & cook for 10 mtes. Open only after 10 mtes & fluff it up with a fork.

    Default Alu Sev - a quick Gujarathi snack.

    Believe me, with totally different masalas, it tastes very much unlike our omapodi. I think lime juice gives an interesting twist!

    Booil, peel & mash fine a medium potato.

    Besan - 1 cup

    Mashed potato - ¾ cup

    Red Chillli powder - 1 tsp

    Green chilli-ginger paste - 1 tsp (grind fine, mix with water & strain – the liquid should be added to prevent the sev from getting blocked in the sev-press.). This ingredient is optional.

    Lime juice - 1 tsp (this gives a nice, mildly tangy taste)

    Salt, haldi, hing

    Hot oil - 1 tbsp

    Knead to a dough using plain water or the strained water, given above.

    Heat oil; when very hot, press directly using sev press; gradually simmer the gas, flipping twice or thrice for uniform cooking. Bubbles will stop when completely cooked.

    Remove to a kitchen-tissue, cool thoroughy & store airtight.
