Masala Khichdi (Rice and Moong Dal)

Gluten Free, Quick & Easy, Rice, , , , , , , ,

Masala Khichdi is a spicy variation of simple khichdi. This is healthy but ultimate comfort food. Khichdi is basically prepared with rice and lentils. Every hosehold has their own recipe for khichdi. At my home khichdi was made just with rice and moong dal. Adding a few vegetables with spicy tomato seasoning makes khichdi a complete meal. Usually khichdi is served with yogurt, pickle and papdam.

Sweet Corn China Grass Kheer by Thangalakshmi

Sweet Corn China Grass Kheer

User Submitted Recipes, ,

Sweet Corn has a natural sweetness and a wonderful flavor that suits best for a kheer. China grass or kadal paasi (as we call in Tamil Nadu) is very good for health and it is used in a famous drink called Jiharthanda. It adds a great texture to the drink. Hence I combined both and developed this delicious Kheer.

Steamed Delight Recipe by Roshni Ramesan

Steamed Delight

User Submitted Recipes, ,

When I saw that the ingredient was rice for the contest, I remembered one of my childhood favorites (Ila Ada and Kozhukatta). Both have the same dough and the same filling, but that they are in different shapes. Ila ada is made by spreading the dough thinly onto banana leaves and has a sweet filling in the center, while kozhukkatta is just the rice dough shaped like a ball with the same sweet filling stuffed in the center. Both are steamed, hence making both very healthy and light.
