Pala Puri Recipe -- How to make Pala Puri -- Poori soaked in Flavoured Milk

Hi, Good Morning. Thank you friends and viewers. Today I will post how to make pala puri recipe.
Puri soaked in sweetened milk or flavoured milk. I picked it from my mother in law. Prepare flavoured milk and make simple puris with all purpose flour and soak them in the milk for a while. While serving pour some milk on top of the puri. It is really an awesome sweet dish to be served during festival season. I like that milk also, most of the time I consume the milk standalone also, without puris. My BIL's most favourite sweet
He always asks for this.

Hayagriva Recipe -- How to make Hayagriva -- Madhwa Hayagriva

Hi, Good Morning, Thank you, friends and viewers. Today I will post how to make Hayagriva recipe.
Hayagriva or hayagreevam is a sweet dish made with chana dal or bengal gram. We picked it from our far related grandmother. It is said that some of our family ancestors belong to Karnataka and we too have relatives and connections with Madhwas. So she must have picked it from them.
This dish is made particularly during Navaratri days in my home. On the sixth day or seventh day of these nine days, we have to offer sweet dish made with chana dal or besan. Every time I make this dish thought of taking photographs, but could not for some reason like running out of time or not arranged it properly or something else. This time, first I took the photographs, then only offered it to the goddess. ;-)
A very simple and less time taking dish to make. The maximum time it takes is for soaking chana dal only. We can add coconut and some dry fruits to it, but I did not add anything. Except for some cashew nuts. But I will be giving where to add coconut to it, so anybody who wants to add can add it too. We can make it with jaggery or sugar. To get the authentic Madhwa temple taste, prefer to make it with only jaggery.

Coconut Rice Recipe -- How to make Coconut Rice -- Festival Special

Hi, Good Morning. Thank You friends and viewers. Today I will post how to make coconut rice recipe.
During festival season we do not use onion and garlic. We collect a lot of coconuts and to make the best use of it, we make different varieties with it. Coconut curry, coconut rice, coconut ladoo, coconut laskora, coconut powder, coconut burfi, coconut in vegetables are some of them. This coconut rice is made during a festival season without onion and garlic. The sweetness of coconut and spicy green chillies makes it a flavourful rice. It can be served without any side dish. I prefer to add freshly shredded coconut, instead of ground coconut powder.

Sojjappalu Recipe -- How to make Sojjappalu -- Andhra Special

Hi, Good Morning, Thank you, friends and viewers. Today I will post how to make sojjappalu recipe.
Ah! after 10 days of hectic schedules of puja, making different varieties of dishes and arranging bommala koluvu and also visiting the temple for bathukamma, today I am really feeling relieved of stress. We celebrate two festivals at a time, one is our custom of arranging bommala koluvu and the other is going to temple for playing and watching bathukamma a floral festival of the state of Telangana. It is a vibrant and colourful festival with a lot of flowers arranged on a plate in a circle. All the bathukammas are brought to one place and ladies play around them in circles. While playing they sing nice folk songs. Really it is a must watch and the way it is played is a good exercise also.
Now coming to the recipe, it is a sweet made with sooji and a special to Telugu states. This is made especially during Diwali. We have to deep fry them. I was always hesitant to make them because of deep frying, but my mom gave me the idea of shallow frying. I tried it, the taste is awesome and I fell flat for the simple procedure. My mom is an expert in making it.

Hi, Good Evening, Thank you, friends and viewers. Today I will post how to make paneer fried rice recipe.
Paneer is the most favourite item for me and my kids. We love to make anything with paneer. I already posted how to make paneer tikka, shahi panner, paneer butter masala, Palak Paneer, Paneer 65 and chilli paneer. I really don't know hoe to make this paneer fried rice. But my kids wanted it, I donno how they got to know about it also. They chant the name so frequently which gave me the idea of the recipe. I made simple fried rice with the available vegetables and then lastly added roasted paneer to it. Simply roasting paneer won't give any extra flavour so I thought of marinating it and fried them and then added to the rice.

Peanut Tomato Chutney Recipe -- How to make Palli Tomato Chutney

Hi, Good Afternoon. Thank you, friends and viewers. Today I will post how to make peanut tomato chutney recipe.
Our day starts with a cup of coffee or tea, then will have sumptuous breakfast. It can be idli, dosa or upma or sometimes poori, pesarattu or pongal etc., Poori is served with potato curry, pesarattu with ginger or coconut chutney. Pongal can be served with simple coconut chutney. Idli tastes good with sambar and chutney. Dosa with curry and chutney. But with a busy and hectic schedules every day we may not be able to make all the specified accompaniments. But one chutney should be there to have with them. We need some modification in the daily chutney. Peanut tomato chutney is a simple variant in the peanut chutney. Tangy tomatoes and roasted peanuts added with chili give a spicy taste to the chutney. If we want we can reduce the spiciness.
Dosa and idli are mild in taste so we need to have a spicy accompaniment. This chutney occupies the place. I served it with uthappam.
