Drumstick Leaves Roti| Murunga Keerai Roti

The fact that moringa greens or drumstick leaves are full of health benefits is very well known. I try to use these greens in my cooking at least once every two weeks. Apart from adding them in dal tadka and sambar, uttappams and adais, one of my family’s most favourite ways to consume these greens is in the form of rotis!

Drumstick Leaves Roti or Murunga Keerai Roti are very simple to make, yet so very delicious. I add in a whole lot of ingredients in them, so they don’t really need to have an accompaniment with them. They are an ideal candidate for busy weekday lunches or dinners.

Pressure Cooker Chana Masala| Indian Chickpea Curry

Do you like Chana Masala?

Chana Masala is my go-to dish when I want to eat something different from the usual South Indian fare we make at home. Considering that it is a hot favourite with everyone in the family, it does find pride of place on our dining table quite often. More often than not, I make a big batch of chana masala, serving it with rotis or parathas, while I use the leftovers the next day to make chaat.

Like my mom, I make Chana Masala in a pressure cooker, which ensures that the dish is ready in a jiffy, with the least of hassle. This Pressure Cooker Chana Masala is super delish, the chickpeas absorbing the flavours from the gravy much better than those cooked in a pan. Using a pressure cooker also ensures that the chickpeas are done just right, without any over- or under-cooking.

Beetroot Poriyal| South Indian Beetroot Stir-Fry

Beetroot Poriyal is an absolute favourite in our household. We love having it with piping hot sambar or rasam and rice – often a weekend special lunch at home! 🙂

Beetroot and coconut is a match made in heaven, I think, and this South Indian-style stir-fry incorporates that very combination. The addition of curry leaves, mustard and green chillies elevates the taste of the dish to a whole new level. It is amazing how this Beetroot Poriyal uses a few ingredients, and how it can be put together so very easily, but is so delicious!
