Breakfast from Andhra - Pesaratu

Think about Andhra ,things that strike your mind are Avakkai oorgai, Gongura Chutney and Pesaratu. Pesaratu is one of the wholesome and filling breakfast which can be had with spicy Ginger chutney. This is a very tasty combination that can make a difference in the usual breakfast menu of dosa and idli.


1 1/2 cup of green moong dal

1 cup of channa dal

1 onion - sliced thinly

2 green chillies

1 small piece of ginger

Salt to taste

Oil as required

Method :

Soak the moong dal and channa dal for about 2 hours after washing it well

Grind it along with ginger, green chillies to make a adai batter consistency

Add the sliced onions and adjust salt to taste

Heat a dosa griddle

Take a laddle full of batter and pour it like a dosa

Flip it to cook well and serve hot with Ginger Chutney

This yummy Pesaratu goes to Cooking with Seeds Event at Priya 's place


Delectable Dish from Chettinand cuisine - Kuli Panniyaram -

I love Kuli Paniyaram, and has always wanted to make it at home. After so much thinking and talking at home, I finally got my Kuli Panniyara pan. Though I am yet to make the dish in my pan. I made it for my nieces, K and T when they had come down to India in July. They loved it. Its always a pleasure when there is some one who relishes the foohat you cook. that kind of motivates me always to cook a vareity of dishes.
This Kuli Panniyaram is very simple. I made use of left over Dosa batter, addes some spices along with onion and green chillies.


  1. Dosa Batter - 2 cups
  2. 1 Onion - cut into small pieces
  3. 1 green chilli - cut into fine pieces
  4. A small pinch of turmeric powder
  5. Salt to taste
  6. Mustard Seeds
  7. Oil as required


  1. Heat the Kulipanniyaram pan. Add a little oil in each of the holes.
  2. While it heats up, in a seperate wok add a little oil along with mustard seeds.
  3. Let them sputter, add the onions and green chillies. Saute for a minute or two.
  4. Add this to the batter, along with turmeric powder and salt.
  5. Mix the batter well
  6. When the Paniyaram pan is hot, laddle in one spoon of batter into each of the holes and let it cook well

7. Keep tossing the panniyaram till its cooked well.
8. I had downplayed the level of spice as my nieces are not used to the level of spice we use here in India. Serve the panniyaram with chutney or sauce, I was given no time to serve it even with Sauce, the plate got over even before I could put it on the table. The girls loved it.

Sending these Panniyarams to Srivalli's Snack Mela

Blogging Marathon # 8 - Kids Delight - Dairy Milk Shake

Day 6 of blogging marathon is time for a Kids delight. My simple recipe for today is Dairy Milk shake. I had offered two dairy milk choclates for Lord Krishna on Janmastami. So I guess its apt to make a milk shake so that it satifies the kids in me ;-) ( jokes apart). I prepared this especially for my dad. He loves milkshakes and choclates, so a combination of them will surely satisfy his taste buds.

1. Dairy Milk Choclate- 1
2. Milk - 1.5 glass
1. Take the dairy milk and break it into small pieces
2. In a blender take the milk and choclate pieces and blend well
2. Serve chilled
