Karthigai Pori - Karthigai Vella Pori Recipe

Image
Karthigai Pori - a classic prasadam prepared for karthigai festival. This karthigai pori looks different from the regular rice pori and you can get these pori during karthigai tamil month in pori shops.


They are one my favourite, favourite...... prasadam dishes. This tastes so good on the next day because the jaggery will enter each poris after cooling down. For this karthigai pori dish you will need the nel pori, jaggery, black sesame seeds and coconut. To prepare jaggery syrup, I recommend to use pagu vellam (jaggery) which is dark brown in colour because it gives a nice taste and colour to this dish. You have to dissolve the jaggery with little water and then strain it if needed. Then continue boiling the syrup on low heat, stirring occasionally, until it reaches to a thick consistency. Watch your jaggery syrup closely as it gets thicker or browns quickly. Before preparing the jaggery syrup, add the nelpori in a big container or in a vessel. Add the roasted sesame seed…

Millets and Toor dal dosa

Millets toor dal dosas are simple dosas made with millets, toor dal, red chillies and a small piece of tamarind. It is an easy recipe and can be made with any millets as you wish. In this dish I have used proso kodo millets. This dosa makes a great dinner without any much effort.


The secret to this crispy dosas is in the grinding the batter in correct consistency. After grinding the batter, I have added finely chopped onions and curry leaves. These dosas require no fermenting, so simply add the onions and any other chopped vegetables or greens and start preparing the crispy dosas. You can serve this dosa with any chutney or sambar. The combination of millets with toor dal is perfect for dosas plus this recipe is easy too.

Grind them by adding water in regular intervals. 



 Grind the batter coarsely. Transfer it to the vessel.
