    Dalia kanji

    Hi Rukmani,

    Dalia( broken wheat ) is like rice. You can cook it in the microwave but it will take about 20 minutes. Better to pressure cook it. The proportion to use will be 1 cup dalia to 2 to 2/12 cups of water. Pressure cook for 3 whistles. The softer the better for you todler. It will come out just like rice. Once cooked, you can add milk , sugar and then a little elakkai for flavor( optional) . You can give it as is if your kid likes the grainy texture. otherwise i would recomend mashing the cooked dalia in a mixer to make it smooth and then mix with milkand sugar. Hope this helps

    1 tbsp. dried bread crumbs, fine
    1 tbsp. butter
    Salt to taste
    1 tbsp. oil

    Method

    1. Mix ginger, garlic,
    2. Mash one potato well, cut fingers of the other.
    3. Mix rice, mashed potato, cornflour, chilli powder, soyasauce, ketchup, salt.
    4. Cut off cap from both tomato and capsicum. Scrape tomato from inside to form hollow.
    5. Place capsicum in boiling water till limp. Drain and pat dry.
    6. Fill both tomato and capsicum with rice filling. Brush with a little butter. Keep aside
    7. Shape pattie of remaining mixture and shallow fry with oil. Keep aside.

    To assemble sizzler:
    1. Heat sizzler tray, place half butter in centre, add all vegetables, salt and stirfry.
    2. Push to the sides, put remaining butter in centre. Add noodles, sprinkle salt and pepper, toss.
    3. Push to sides inside the veggies. Place the capsicum, tomato and pattie in centre.

    5. Transfer tray to its wooden container.

    7. Serve piping hot with sauce, garlic rolls, etc.

    Making time: 1 hour
    Makes: 1 large serving bowl
    Shelflife: Serve immediately, prior preparation as convenient. Note: To make for a large number of guests, it would be better to use the same method but use a large griddle (tawa used for pav bhaji) to accommodate for all. Increase all the ingredients accordingly.

    Hello Heena !

    Select ripe mangoes. Cut into segments. Scoop out the pulp as close to the skin as possible. Liquidise thoroughly. Freeze in boxes. I always do this - preserves well.
    Love & regards,
    Chithra.

    Me again, Heena !

    I freeze it in usual airtight freezer ( plastic) boxes.
    Ice will not form. Previous day tranfer from freezer, lower down, to the fridge. Take it out & thaw for 2-3 hrs before using. I use this for puddings, mangola & other kuzambus.
    Love & regards,
    Chithra.

    Please help with a recipe for Brussels sprouts

    Hello,

    I'm new here, and I'm looking for help. I'm a university student in Texas, and I have a professor who says that it is impossible to make brussels sprouts so that she will eat them. Just a few minutes earlier, she had made the statement that Indian food is the best food in the world, so I raised my hand and asked, "What about Brussels Sprouts Vindaloo?" I know that there is probably no such dish, but she said that that might be a way to make them taste good. So, what I'm wondering, does anybody have any good recipes where I can make a curry, or some other Indian dish, out of brussels sprouts?

    Thanks,

    Ethan Muse (no, I'm not Indian, nor am I a lady...just needing a recipe).
