    Dearest Chitrama,
    Here i am with my fb for Peas dokhla. The Dokhlas were amazing and a super hit :banana:banana
    I steamed them in my small idli cooker (which can make exactly 8idlis) kept it for exactly 20minutes and it was super fluffy and soft. We(me & DH) literally hogged as soon as i transferred it into the plate. My DH asked for more after having them. So again prepared the second set of dhoklas, this time the plain ones and kept in the PP for the same 20minutes with the whistle but the dhokhlas turned bit harder this time. Should we steam with the whistle or without the whistle??
    My DH asked me to prepare the Peas dhokhlas again for next weekend also :yes::2thumbsup:

    Cant thankyou enough for all that you are doing Chitrama :)

    Luv,
    PS

    Dear chithramma,

    Today nonmbu adais were pramadham. It is the first time in my life i have done adai in 2 years of married life last year i celeberated with my mil so no chance of doing. When i said i am going to do everyone said take care not to alandhufy adai. It came out verywell without alandhufying. One of my kerala friend ate it and told very tasty. My hubby as usual gobbled it.

    As u said i bought preethi blue leaf with juice extractor. I am very happy that i have a person to guide me for the right choice.thankyou madam.

    Nombu aacha??

    Hi Mrs.C,

    so, nombu ellam aacha?? We too had a nice nombu with adais frm yr step by step recipes. Lots of FBs for nombu adai, and here I am with the same FB. Both of them came out well. Thanks for taking too many efforts, really mean a lot to all of us.

    Curious to know, do you always add grated coconut to adai, not pallu thengai??

    Forgot to tell that I used MWing method to break The hardest vellam. worked out like a charm!!

    Bye.

    Mrs. C,

    Happy Nombu to you. I followed your step by step recipes and made sure the rice flour was roasted the right way. A picture is worth a thousand words, that is so true.

    My adai came out very well which is a very good Lakshanam according to me.
    My adais have never come out so well before.

    thanks again.
    Another feed back i wanted to give you. You had mentioned that chappatis come out soft if we use Maida flour to dip the balls in for rolling. i tried it out and am very impressed with the outcome. You must convey my thanks to your daughter as well. thank you.

    Dear Chithra Mam,

    I made Nombu Adai today. First time doing nombu myself, and made adai myself. While speaking with mom yesterda, I told her I already knew how to do adai and mom was surprised :) then she said 'Oh Chithra Aunty recipe la kathintiya ?' :)

    Your step by step pics helped very well.

    But I could not get Karamani :( Made it simple.

    Thanks for the recipe mam..

    Love,
    Sowmya

    Suddenly, veg medley seems to be on the way to popularity chart!!
    Do change the side dish for puri for a variety, Varloo!
    That sour malai burfi tasted like some bengali dish shows your sense of humour & I had a good laugh!!:rotfl
    Try to make atleast 2,3 variwties of idli for a change from the regular one.
    You deserve a break from tension as well, after A's exams are over!! :)
    Love,
    Chithra.
