Tawa Brinjal Fry - Tawa Kathrikkai Varuval

Image
Tawa Brinjal Fry - easy and tasty dish with brinjal with simple cooking methods. You can serve this as a side dish for lemon rice, tamarind rice and curd rice. Just like other roast and fry dishes this tawa brinjal fry has many variations. In this recipe, the brinjal slices are dipped in thin buttermilk and then coated with seasoned besan flour and then fried in tawa. Some versions would skip the dipping, some would also use other ingredients like rava for crispy outer layer. If you use tender brinjals with less seeds it tastes so good. My son Siva who's not a big fan of brinjal, likes this tawa brinjal fry very much. I personally enjoyed this tawa brinjal as a snack but sometimes stuffed on dosa sprinkled with chilli flakes.  Similar Recipes Baby Corn Fry - Fried Baby Corn Senaikizhangu Chops - Elephant Foot Yam Roast Mushroom Fry Cauliflower Fry Paneer 65  Tawa Brinjal Fry - Tawa Kathrikkai Varuval Recipe Prep time : 20 minutes Cook time : 15 minutes Serves : 4 Category : side di

It's sure to become your favourite kesari dish because I felt that this naatu sarkkarai and wheat rava combination taste good. I have also tried naatu sarkkarai with regular fine sooji but the taste is not good as this wheat rava kesari. Last month I have already uploaded the video on my channel. Due to the online classes and work from home situation, I don't have time to upload recipes regularly. To prepare this kesari you will need samba wheat rava, naatu sarkkarai, ghee and cashew nuts. For kesari dishes I prefer to add 2 cups of sugar for 1 cup orava. Here also I have used the same technique in fact you have to add additional sugar because unrefined jaggery has less sweetness when compared to sugar. You can easily prepare this sweet as prasadam for pooja. Now we will see how to prepare Wheat Rava Kesari with a short

Jackfruit moongdal payasam - delicious dessert prepared with jackfruit, jaggery, moong dal and coconut milk.  Jackfruit is one of our family favourite fruit for its taste and aroma. For most of our family occasions or get together, my perippa always include a dessert with jackfruit. During such occasions, our house was filled with the jackfruit aroma and it was mesmerizing memories.When I prepared 30 varieties Nanjil recipes for the Aval Vikatan magazine, my Rema Athai taught me this payasam dish. She told me this chakka payasam can be prepared in two different methods. Traditional chakka payasam is prepared with jackfruit, jaggery and coconut milk. In this recipe, the only additional ingredient is moong dal and they both are closely related to each other. They both taste as good as they look. As I told in my previous payasam dishes, I would always prefer pagu vellam (dark brown jaggery) which is perfect for traditional desserts.  Here is a short video for Jackfruit Moong Dal Payasam
