    I love Malabar Paratha. I like to call this Parotta. A popular Kerala street food, this is a great alternative to flatbreads liek roti or paratha. It is similar to lachcha paratha, but made with all purpose flour instead of wheat.

    Thin layers of dough neatly stacked on top of the other and fried to crispy perfection makes this flatbread unlike any other. It is traditionally served with Vegetable Kurma, but honestly- it tastes brilliant with any spicy Indian side dish.   (more…)

    Vada Pav. The name alone is enough to bring a smile on every Mumbaikar’s face.  I have fond memories of eating this delicious and filling snack almost every day during college. Vada Pav and Pani Puri were solely responsible for my brush with obesity in my late teens and early 20s. I’m healthier now, it’s all good. But my love for this snack still continues with an intensity like never before. I was delighted to recreate one of my favorite fast foods at home!

    Go make some Vada Pav and enjoy it with a hot cup of Masala Chai.    (more…)

    Milagai Podi is a spice blend made with lentils and chilli. It is mixed with oil and eaten as a condiment to various Indian dishes… typically south Indian dishes such as Idli, Dosa and more. It is even used as a dip to be eaten with chips by some people.

    Milagai (or as some people like to call it Molaga) is a Tamil word for Chili. This literally translates to chili powder. But it isn’t exactly just powdered chili. There are blends of lentils and seeds to give it additional flavor. You can make this and store it for a long time. It comes in very handly when you’re short of time and cannot make chutneys as side dishes. Just add a splash of sesame oil (or coconut oil or water) to some of the powder and you have a fabulous dip ready!
