Hi all,

Pasta, Indian style



Mix.Veg Poha(ಅವಲಕ್ಕಿ)



Aloo Paratha with Papad, Curds and Pickle



There are few foods which do not require any recipes to
explain. So I do post it in "Food in photo". Or sometimes, my dish comes out so good, but I will not be having time to post on the same day. That time I will post only photos and the recipes are posted later!!!
(Good reason to hide laziness !!!)

But these photos are specially going to Divya's
(divya-dilse.blogspot.com)

Sesame seeds poli(ಎಳ್ಳಿನ ಹೋಳಿಗೆ)

Tried and tasted by Nivedita
Hi all,


Here is the recipe for a sweet, which is common in North Karnataka. It is good in Winter as it is made of Sesame seeds(Til or ಎಳ್ಳು). It can be stored for a week also. I use it often in South Indian curries.
In UAE, we get Tahina (i.e sesame seeds paste) paste in super markets, which is used to make humous. It was regular in my house when I was back in UAE.
Not only are sesame seeds a very good source of manganese and copper, but they are also a good source of calcium, magnesium, iron, phosphorus, vitamin B1, zinc and dietary fiber.Read more on this, in http://whfoods.org/genpage.php?tname=foodspice&dbid=84

Here goes the recipe,

Sesame seeds - 1 cup
Jaggery - 1 cup(or 3/4 cup, if jaggery is very sweet)
Cardamom - 2
Wheat flour - 3/4 cup
Maida - 1/4 cup
Fine rawa(Suji) - 2 tbsp
Oil - 1 tbsp
Salt a pinch
Mix the Wheat flour, Maida and Fine rawa with 1 tbsp oil, salt and water to make dough. (Little softer than we make for chapati.)
Keep it covered aside for 2 - 3 hours.
Roast the sesame seeds on a very slow flame, till nice aroma comes. After it is cool, grind it with jaggery and cardamom.
Now make small balls of dough(small lemon size). Take one ball, spread on the palm, and fill it with ready powder.
Roll it in to small puri size. Roast like chapati. No need to put oil. Repeat for other balls.
Sesame seeds poli(ಎಳ್ಳಿನ ಹೋಳಿಗೆ) is ready to eat. It tastes very delicious with Ghee spread on it.

I am sending this to
this month event,
OPEN SESAME!!who signed up with Sunitha .

Keep smiling,
