    EVENT: FOODIEMONDAY/BLOGHOP THEME: #256 DOSA DEN RECIPE : RAGI DOSA/ FINGER MILLET DOSA What is Ragi Dosa? First of all, let me explain what a dosa is. Dosa is a flatbread or pancake more like a crepe that is the staple breakfast in the South Indian Cuisine. Ragi Dosa is dosa made using ragi or finger millet. The fermented batter is spread on a flat pan or tawa into a thin circular crepe or pancake like dosa. Having said that, you will find that dosa is available in any nook and cranny part of India. While most South Indians consider dosa as a breakfast or snack option, for Gujjus like me its a main meal. Rice and lentil fermented batter is used to make dosa.…

    EVENT: FOODIEMONDAY/BLOGHOP THEME: #255 DAHI DELIGHTS DISH: PEACH CARDAMOM LASSI This Week’s Theme on FoodieMonday/Bloghop Group: This week’s theme Dahi Delights  has been suggested by Poonam who blogs at Annapurna. Poonam’s suggestion was to try and use dahi as a main ingredient, for any dish be it a drink, starter, main or dessert. Before I go into explaining what is dahi, I have to mention that Poonam’s crisp, clear and colourful photos of all her dishes is a treat for the eyes. Her blog is a a wonderful balance of vegetarian dishes from India and International. What is Dahi? Dahi is the Hindi/Gujarati word for yogurt. The word yogurt is also referred to curd in India. If you ask a shopkeeper for yogurt, he probably…

  • Samo Tikki/ Barnyard Millet Pattis

    July 6, 2020mayurisjikoni

    EVENT: FOODIEMONDAY/BLOGHOP THEME: #254 FARALI FARMAISH DISH: SAMO TIKKI/BARNYARD MILLET PATTIS This Week’s Theme on FoodieMonday/Bloghop Group: This week’s theme FARALI FARMAISH  has been suggested by Kalyani who blogs at Sizzling Tastebuds. Kalyani’s guideline for the theme is pretty simple –  prepare a dish that our family enjoys during any fasting day. And let me tell you if you were to go from north to south, east to west in India, you’d probably land up fasting everyday as there are so many fasting days. Kalyani’s blog largely focuses on vegan and healthy dishes. Having said that, it doesn’t mean she doesn’t have recipes for desserts, bakes and Indian sweets. For this week’s theme I made Samo Tikki or Barnyard Millet Pattis. A good way to…

  • Beetroot Blueberry Pops

    June 29, 2020mayurisjikoni

    EVENT: FOODIEMONDAY/BLOGHOP THEME: #253 MUNCHKIN MEALS DISH: BEETROOT BLUEBERRY POPS This Week’s Theme on FoodieMonday/Bloghop Group: This week’s theme was suggested by Narmadha who blogs at Nams Corner. Her blog is a treasure trove of kids friendly recipes, bakes and Indian Cuisine recipes. Do check out her blog. Narmadha’s suggestion for the munchkin meals was to try and make them as healthy as possible. Desserts are always difficult to make them kids friendly with no sugar. That’s when I thought of Beetroot Blueberry Pops. Kids Friendly Meals When my kids were growing up making meals for them was never stressful. Back then we didn’t have restrictions, no don’t give that and don’t give this. When my kids started pureed food it was always made at…

  • Kabuli Chana Biryani/Chickpea Biryani

    June 22, 2020mayurisjikoni

    EVENT: FOODIEMONDAY/BLOGHOP THEME: #252 CHANA TIME DISH: KABULI CHANA BIRYANI/CHICKPEA BIRYANI How did I decide to use Kabuli Chana? The local ISKCON temple opened up its restaurant for take aways only, after having been closed for 2 months because of the Covid 19 pandemic. Last Saturday, my neighbor placed an order with the temple restaurant for Sunday Lunch and I jumped for joy as I’m really fed up with daily cooking. It was a much required rest from the kitchen for a while at least. For hubby and me he ordered one thali but it was enough for two. After we finished our lunch, a bit of the vegetable biryani and a bit of Chole (Chickpea Curry) was left over. I mixed both and put…

  • Semolina Sesame Seed Bread

    EVENT: FOODIEMONDAY/BLOGHOP THEME: #251 RAVA RAAGA DISH: SEMOLINA SESAME SEED BREAD Theme this week on FoodieMonday/Bloghop After all the celebration, for the 250th theme by members of this awesome group, we are back to suggesting themes whereby all members have easy access to ingredients. Though many countries are trying to get back to some sort of normal life…which by the way is never going to be the same for anyone, some ingredients are still difficult to source. Keeping this in mind, Aruna who blogs at Vasus Veg Kitchen suggested that we use Semolina to prepare a dish.  What is Semolina? Also known as Suji, sooji, rava, rawa, it is actually the middle part or endosperm of the hardy durum wheat. While milling the bran and…

  • Eggless Pear Upside Down Cake

    EVENT: FOODIEMONDAY/BLOGHOP THEME: #250 LET’S CELEBRATE WITH CAKE   Theme this week on FoodieMonday/Bloghop This week FoodieMonday/Bloghop is celebrating 250th theme. What better way to celebrate this milestone with some cake. We’ve had some interesting themes, some repeats and some challenging ones too. For a group to continue strongly for 5 years and that too with recipes every week of the month is no small feat.    My Journey with FoodieMonday/Bloghop I joined the group on 14th march 2016 for their 31st theme which was Fusion Thandai Recipes. I made Thandai Kulfi thinking that I’ve definitely created something different. Unfortunately that was not the case, as other participants had made souffles, galettes,  thandai barfi with cherry glaze, thandai baked yogurt etc. That was the first…

    EVENT: FOODIEMONDAY/BLOGHOP THEME: #249 MONSOON MUNCHIES For India, the hype of summer with people going on holidays, enjoying late nights out, street food, ice creams, mango delights all passed by without much celebration this year with the lockdown because of Covid 19. Some states are already experiencing rains while others are waiting for the Monsoon. Monsoon in India equates to hot hot bhajias (pakoras), steaming or roasted corn and garam garam (hot) chai.  Theme this week on FoodieMonday/Bloghop Archana who blogs at The Mad Scientist’s Kitchen suggested Monsoon food and I was thinking like I really don’t want to fry anything or even make a hot soup as it has been just too hot for the past week or so in Mombasa. We are suppose…

  • Lavender Lemon Panna Cotta with Lemon Curd

    May 25, 2020mayurisjikoni

    EVENT: FOODIEMONDAY/BLOGHOP THEME: #248 LEMON LOVE For this week’s theme, I’ve made a Lavender and Lemon infused panna cotta with lemon curd. Lemons are bright yellow citrus fruits with an acidic juice. Lemons are an integral part of many dishes, from just a dash of the juice to including whole lemons. FoodieMonday/Bloghop Theme This week’s theme was suggested by Waagmi who blogs at Cooking is Funn. Her photography speaks volumes, making every dish appear delectable. She suggested we use Lemon to prepare our dish for this week’s theme. Most of us are still cooking with basic ingredients that are available in our pantries. Keeping lemon in mind I would love to try out Waagmi’s simple and yet tempting Eggless Lemon Cake. Lemons Since I was…

    EVENT: FOODIEMONDAY/BLOGHOP THEME: #247 IT’S CHAAT TIME Summer time in India equates to not only mangoes but also Chaats and loads of it. This is the time when most kitchens are closed especially in the evenings and families venture out to sample lip smacking street food and chaats. However, this year I’m sure its a totally different scenario with everyone cooped up at home. However, that doesn’t mean that one cannot enjoy Chaats from the comforts of their homes. FoodieMonday/Bloghop Theme Here in Kenya, we don’t get Chaats as street food, as it has its own street food specials like Mahamari, Fried Mogo, Kebabs, Chicken Tikka, Kachri Bateta, Viazi Karai, etc. If we want to enjoy some Chaats we either have to make them at…
