Mosaru Kodubale

I am a big fan of these crisp crusted and soft centered Kodubales. It has never happened that my guests have disapproved of this particular dish whenever I made them on special occasions. A perfect snack for winters, rainy season to sit back and enjoy with a cup of hot drink of your choice.

You Need :

Rice Flour : 2 cups
Sour Curd : 1 cup
Greenchilli paste: 1 tsp
Oil for deep frying

1. Dilute 1 cup of sour curd with 1 cup of water. Add green chilli paste and salt. Bring this mixture to boil. Add rice flour to boiling water and reduce the heat.
2.Let the rice flour cook for 3-4 mins on low heat. Switch off the stove and mix the contents. Let the flour mixture cool down.
3.If you have a food porcessor fix the dough kneading blade and charge the flour mixture to the FP and let it run for few seconds or till the flour gets kneaded. It should take less than a minute. Remove the kneaded dough to a clean vessel. Alternatively you can knead the dough with your hands till you get lump free soft dough.
4. Pinch a small ball from the dough. Rub little oil to your hands and roll this dough to make long pencils. Seal the edges of this pencil to get a circle. Deep fry them in hot oil till crisp. Tip: Heat oil on medium heat to get crisp kodubales.
5. Enjoy them with coconut chutney or just plain will also taste equally good.

Frothy, Tasty Coffee- Barista?? not sure...

My good old comp has given up! We are trying to revive it back. It needs some urgent IT medical services before it starts working again. Till then you all have a caffiene boost and relaxx ..

Our love to coffee is more than words and probably too much to describe in words and sentences. One fine rainy evening, a friend of mine made this frothy and tasty coffee and I fell in love with it. My friend calls it Barista. Since I have not tasted Barista coffee..I will take it as Barista.

Eversince I tasted it I made sure that every other coffee lover tasted it and err..passed on the addiction to my dear colleague A. What else! we enjoy this cup of coffee even in office now :D

Now, moving on to the need the following to make 'our style barista coffee' :

Nescafe : 1tbsp
Sugar: 3tbsp
Water : 2 tbsp-5tbsp
Hot Milk: 1 cup (200ml)

Take Nescafe and Sugar in a bowl/coffee mug and add sugar. Add little water at a time and beat sugar and Nescafe with the help of a spoon. Dark brown colored mixture starts changing its color. Dark Brown to Light Brown. The resulting mixture also becomes light and fluffy as shown in the picture below.

Please bear with the picture as my old comp is yet to get repaired.

Take a tbsp of the mixture and mix it with 100 ml of hot milk. Mix it with a spoon and add more sugar if you require. ENJOYY; your hot cup of coffee..I can surely say that a coffee lover would surely fall in love with 'our style Barista' :)

Avalakki Dose/Bread Dose

Avalakki Dose or Bread Dose makes a yummy breakfast. Taste is different from usual dose and is a good alternative too for regular dose. I stumbled upon this recipe at Chitra Amma's Kitchen and from then Bread Dose has been added to our breakfast list.

You need the following to make Avalakki/Bread Dose :
Akki/Rice : 2 cups
Avalakki/Pressed Rice/Poha/Rice Flakes/Beaten Rice : 1/2 cup
Mosaru/Dahi/Perugu/Thair/Curd/Yogurt : 3 cups

We can make it in two different ways. Method1.Wash Rice and Pressed Rice and soak in Curds for 4-5 hrs and grind it to make smooth batter. Mix salt and make start making dosa.This method suits if you are using sour curds to soak rice and poha.

Method 2 : Wash Rice and Pressed Rice and Soak in Curds for 2-3 hrs and grind to make smooth batter. Mix salt and let it stand overnight before you make dose. This method suits if you are using sweet or fresh curds.

Do not forget to cook dose with lid closed. Enjoy hot dose with your favorite chutney. We had ours with coconut chutney.
