See Notes**
Makes about 10 small appam

  • 1 cup Rava
  • 1/3 cup curd (not too sour)
  • 1/3 cup coconut
  • Half onion roughly chopped
  • 1 cup water
  • Salt as per taste 
  • 1/4tsp Baking soda
  • Ghee/ Oil for greasing (optional)
  1. Take 1 cup rava, curd, coconut, onion along with 1 cup water into in a big mixer jar and grind it to a smooth paste. (Make sure not to add more water than mentioned) **
  2. Pour the batter into a utensil and add salt as per taste and 1/4 teaspoon baking soda** and mix well 
  3. Heat a tawa/pan and grease with oil or ghee (optional)
  4. Once hot, add a ladle of batter and spread it a little, should be like a pancake or Appam. 
  5. When you see bubbles coming up, flip and turn over to cook the other side
  6. Make more appam with rest of the batter
  7. Serve hot with sambhar or any chutney of your choice. We usually have these with this Coconut chutney
  • These measurements mentioned makes only about 10 small appams. Make sure to double the quantity for more appams. 
  • Make sure NOT to add more water than mentioned as it will make the batter too runny. We need a thick batter for this. 
  • Remember to add baking soda right at the end. If you plan to keep the batter for while for later use then Do NOT add baking soda before. Just add before using
  • The curd which you will use should not be very sour. 
  • Baking soda makes it super soft and fluffy. But you can avoid it if you want. If avoiding baking soda make sure to keep the batter for about 15 mins before using it.

Easy Sambar (without tamarind)

Sambar is a must in most south Indian families and like others even I have grown up having dosa- sambhar and chutney's. A Sambar is a lentil based vegetable stew or curry cooked with dal/lentils along with some veggies and some tamarind pulp. There are coconut based sambar as well and each region has its own sambar variation. In my house, we all prefer quick meals, but yet tasty. My mother who was a working lady would make elaborate meals only during holidays or special occasions. Rest all the meals would be quick yet very very tasty. This is one such sambar which my mom has taught me and is super quick.  This doesn't use tamarind like in a traditional sambar and gets its tangy flavour from tomatoes. Its quick, one pot sambar recipe. Lets dive in and see how its done: Ingredients: Serves 3 1/2 to 1 cup Tur Dal/ Yellow Lentils 2-3 tomatoes chopped (depending on size) 1/2 cup Veggies each of your choice cubed Turmeric powder A pinch of Asafoetida/ Hing 1/2 tsp chilli powder Salt

Home-Made Nuts Powder

Home-Made Nuts powder is something which I have been making since Jeremy was a 9 month old. Initially to introduce nuts, I used to powder each nut separately (one day each) and mix with every food. As he grew older I realized he hates whole nuts especially Almonds and Pistachios. Cashews are still ok with him provided they are salted ones. But still he wasn't consuming much.

But this fine nut powder is a winner and I add it up in almost everything on a daily basis.  So this nut powder is perfect for fussy kid like mine or if you just wanna introduce nuts to your kids diet, this is a good solution. Its pretty simple and fuss free.   The powder is suitable for babies over 8 months, but before you feed this to your baby, make sure that baby has already tried the powdered version o
