    i made it in the kuzhipaniyaram pan @sumarathi. i make vadai and koftas and more in this..i just use a few drops of oil. instead of frying in loads of oil..konjam porumai venum but no compromise on taste..

    @satchitananda i love the variety in your plate today.

    @sumanrathi go slow on the raw chilli chutney..summer is coming..have lots of laban..

    Sundays are mostly one pot meals and fil loves these one pot meals where he does not need to do more work..like mixing curries, rasam or sabji..happy family. what more do i need.

    today ds said why don't you make kitchidi maa..long time but please don't make kadhi..kitchdi and kadhi is the way it is done..so it was just two cookers ..one for all and one specially for me..some raita nad papads..

    I am happy, that he wanted it, for someone who does not like mushy food he sure loves kitchdi..and there are some vegetables sneaked in diced.. IMG_20150329_130814.jpg IMG_20150329_130826.jpg

    samai+whole moong dal split kitchdi with vegetables, onion raitha, mwed papad, and a tender mango pickle..

    the same wholemoong dal split+rice with vegetables kitchdi for the rest of the family.

    verdict from fil and dd was that samai kitchdi did not taste different and nobody would be able to find unless i told them...

    Shan,

    Yesterday I made Varagu Bisibelabath & pumpkin raita. DH still now does not know that it is not rice. Nowadays for kichidi & pongal also I use millets for all of us. I need to make sure the side-dish is apt when I do that!

    @Satchi,

    Is this yours usual quantity of the lunch? With the variety that you make aren't you tempted for another serving?

    @damini, same combination here too:)

    @satchi - I have the same question as damini :)@

    @sumanrathi - dosa looks yummy. do you use ragi flour or soak and grind ragi? If the latter, can you please share the ratio? TIA
