Rava Idli(Sooji Idli)

Rava Idli is one of my favourite tiffin item. Including me I have seen many people who hate to eat idli.  But Rava Idli is an exception. It is very tasty, spongy  and most of the people likes it. You can also add baking soda or ENO to make it spongy. I made it without adding those and yet the idlis...

Vegetable Vermicelli

Semiya upma is also known as Vermicelli upma which is my all time favourite. Though we make Rava upma frequently at home, I like semiya upma than rava upma. Whenever I make, either it will not be cooked properly or it will become mushy. It took sometime to make Vermicelli upma perfectly. Once learnt, it is very easy to make tiffin...

Sooji Roti

Rava Roti or Sooji Roti is completely a different recipe for me. Usually we make upma, idli and dosai out of semolina. I came across this recipe in a cookbook and want to give a try. The recipe tasted different and it can be made in a jiffy. I loved this recipe and ‘K’ too.  We had this with tomato...
