Vegetable Biryani

I love my meat and honestly believed that the term Biryani is reserved only for non vegetarian rice dishes. Many of my vegetarian friends would disagree though. The process is similar to making a nonveg biryani so I believe the title can be shared if I am being generous. I have adapted this recipe slightly from cookwithmanali.coms recipe. I don’t eat …

Instant Rawa Idli and Chilli Garlic Coconut Chutney

I have only eaten this Rawa idli at my mom’s house. My sister makes it for us, and I like how it pairs well with this pungent chutney to make a filling and delicious breakfast. Though it is an instant idli recipe, the process isn’t instant. Worth the effort, especially if you have forgotten to …
