It was a few months back, when I received an email from a Local News Channel willing to invite me to their cooking show.. Theme was fusion, and I came up with three recipes for them.. One of them was this Cheesy Chili Idli..
As Mothers Day is so close, I thought to cook with my mom this time.. You know it well, as my dear mumma loves Idlis, I had to come with something on the lines.. So, we together cooked the dish..
I must say, my mom is slightly camera shy, just like I was.. But as we shoot more with her, it’ll overcome 🙂 And yes, If you’re a Indian & looking for some delectable recipes in our National Language, wait is all over.. Coming up soon some delectable recipes 🙂
Back to the recipe, this is really great.. It’s kind of a dish, I can have anytime.. It’s spicy, chatpata & balanced as well.. At once, you get a taste of South India from the onion chutney & then there is the fusion thing. Let’s watch the recipe first 🙂
Start by greasing mini/button idli plates. Fill the trays ¼th of the way with the idli batter. Chop the cheese slices into small pieces and put them over the batter. Cover with more batter.
Tap a couple of times and steam the idlis in a idli steamer or a pressure cooker(without whistle) for 7-8 minutes. (2-3 mins in high, rest in medium flame)
After the idlis have been steamed, take them out and let them cool for 5 mins before scooping out from the plates.
In a pan, add 2 tbsp of oil and while you wait for it to get hot; crush ginger, garlic, chili in a mortar & pestle.
To the hot oil, add the mustard seeds. As they splutter add asafoetida, curry leaves, chana dal, urad dal. After the tempering is done, add the chopped onions & crushed ginger garlic chili mix. Stir & cook for a moment.
Add salt to taste, and cook till the onions start going golden. Then add in the bell peppers & the tomatoes. Stir and cook for 2-3 minutes.
As the peppers are cooked, add the chili flakes, tomato sauce, chili sauce, and some sugar to balance it. Stir well.
Then add in the onion chutney and some water if needed. Stir, and then add the idlis. Toss it, and Serve Hot!
You can enjoy the cheesy idlis as it is as well 😀
Soft Idlis, with cheese inside is scrummy on its own, with the sauces & veggies it just goes to the next level! Do try it, and let us know how you like it 🙂
Bread Pulao, or Bread Upma is one dish that we’ve been eating as a lunch since years.. You must be remembering, there was either one or two days in a week(or alternate), when you got something special in the lunch box as a kid.. My mom still does that for me..
And what used to be in those special days? Something experimental, or our subtle and amusing Bread Pulao, Poha and so on.. Fond memories isn’t it?
Let’s make some Bread Pulao this time around for the Kids Lunch Box Series 🙂
Start by heating up a pan with a tablespoon of oil. Add the mustard seeds, after they splutter add the chopped green chili and onions.
Cook the onions, once they start getting golden add the chopped tomatoes, salt to taste and cook until it is mushy.
Add some chopped coriander leaves, red chili powder and ketchup mix and cook for a minute. Add a tsp of sugar and stir.. Then add the cubed bread slices. Mix it all well together, add some more coriander and serve or pack in lunch box! Enjoy!
Curry Leaves can be added in the tempering.
Just remember, loading the bread pulao with bhujia…. Total bliss! I want to enjoy again, so let me go.. That’s all for today!

So, I thought to make a Vegetable Wrap this time for Kids Lunch Box Series, and believe me, it is amazing! The vegetables give a crunch, marinated paneer has something on its own, along with the chatakedaar chutney(coriander chutney made with yogurt and used black salt), and ofcourse our humble leftover rotis!

Yogurt : 1 Tsp
Chat Masala : 1½ Tsp
Red Chili : 1 Tsp
Salt : as per taste

Start by marinating paneer, to do so take a plate, add the yogurt, 1 tsp chat masala, 1 tsp kashmiri red chili powder, about ½ tbsp of green chutney and salt to taste. Mix well and then add the paneer strips and coat well.
Cook the paneer strips in a hot pan with some oil until golden, flip and cook on both sides. Keep aside.
In the same pan, add about ½ tsp of oil and then add the carrots, beans, onions, capsicums. Saute for two minutes. Add the chat masala, switch off the flame and add the salt. Stir well for a minute, add the cabbage and stir well. Transfer to a plate and let it cool. The veggies should be cooked, but need to have a slight crunch.
To make the wrap, take a roti, smear about a tablespoon of chutney. Then some lettuce, vegetable mix, paneer, sprinkle of salt, some ketchup, and roll it up! Either wrap half of it with aluminum foil and pack, or pack however you wish or just half it and serve! Enjoy the delicious wrap 🙂
