Paruppu Podi Recipe | South Indian Spicy Lentil Chutney Powder Recipe | Foodomania.com

Paruppu podi is a spicy lentil-based chutney powder eaten with hot rice and a hint of ghee. Paruppu literally translates to lentil and Podi is powder. Blends like this, Curry Leaves Powder and Milagai Podi come in handy when you are pressed for time or are in no mood to cook. All you have to do is cook some rice / reheat leftover rice, add a dash of Ghee (optional) and as much or as little of this chutney powder, mix and eat!

You can adjust the blend to suit your taste-buds. This is my Ma’s recipe.    (more…)

Molten Chocolate Lava Cake is one of my favorite desserts. I thought it would be apt to post something special today, for it is the 4th anniversary of Foodomania. Yep, I officially launched this website on August 1st, 2012. In the past 4 years, I’ve been able to post 500+ recipes with step by step pictures, build a community of food lovers and see my blog grow into a mildly popular food brand. I am grateful to have found a hobby that I’m so passionate about and that lets me be creative.

So, here’s how to make the eggless molten chocolate lava cake in under 15 minutes –   (more…)
