    I will be doing idli dosa, but don't want to invest 100$ for Indian mixe or grinder for now.. planning to do idling in big frying pan in flat plates.. suggest a American blender/mixer ( around 30$ )which works approximately well to grind batter..

    Will you be needing the blender for baby food and other Indian gravies? If yes, then buy Oster brand for $20.

    If you are buying blender only for idly-dosa batter, I suggest you can just buy ready-made batter available in Indian grocery stores.

    Thanks for reply I use mixe for few cooking but can manage without one.. but I am thinking it's best to buy some blender which can help me make batter at least if it matches 80% of Indian mixer/grinder m ok.. and ok to invest up to 50$ for mixer/blender

    For 3 months, maybe store bought batter is a better option. Also you could plan to cook more of one pot meals and tiffin like upmas to reduce buying too many Pots and pans. There are these clips that are available in ikea which you could use to cilp the pouches of the groceries. You don't need to transfer them into ziplock in that case
