The traditional deep dried Samosa is and will always be the best way to make this snack. However, one has to look for better alternatives if he/she plans to eat this often.

They take a little bit longer to get ready than the regular version; but if you could avoid all the fat and yet retain all the flavor – wouldn’t you wanna make them this way all the time?  Baked Samosas are almost exactly same as deep fried Samosas. The only difference is in the method of preparation. You could use your favorite filling for these or make the typical Samosa filling we all love. Similarly, you could make them in the conical samosa shape – or do what i did – roll them into bite sized pieces and call them Samosa bites! 🙂 They all taste the same – no matter what shape you roll them into!   (more…)

Punjai Samosa Recipe | How to make Samosas fro scracth by Foodomania

A Punjabi Samosa is one of the most popular deep fried delicacies in India. In fact, if you are an Indian cuisine enthusiast, I’m sure you’ve heard of a Samosa. Making samosas is an art that requires some patience and skill – both of which I seem to lack. However, what I do believe is that a little bit of off-shaped Samosa shouldn’t keep you away from making these at home – for homemade samosas are just the best! (more…)

Mysore Rasam

The aroma of freshly ground spices in this Mysore Rasam will enchant your taste-buds like no other South Indian Rasam ever has!

Made with freshly ground spices and coconut in a tamarind based stock, this rasam served with hot rice and some crispy stir fried potatoes makes an awesome lunch or dinner meal. Even if you want to avoid the carb in rice, you can drink this lentil soup like broth as is… It is an instant energizer! In almost every South Indian function, you’d find this Mysore Rasam as a part of the meal.  (more…)

It is as easy as throwing all of them together in a pot and cooking them for 45 minutes until all the flavors come together to make a hearty bowl of paal payasam.

Which brings me to the word “paal payasam“. For all my non-south-Indian friends out there, it loosely translates to “milk sweet“. But that doesn’t really give out much information about the dessert itself because off the top of my head – I could give you 10 other sweets made with milk. (Hellllooo… remember Rabdiiiii??) But it is what it is. I don’t know much about its nomenclature. But I could tell you that making this milk & rice dessert could not be easier.  (more…)
