Watermelon dosa or dosai recipe - i am a big fan of all varieties of dosa. This is a delicious dosa made with the batter of watermelon rind, raw rice and coconut. It is perfect for either breakfast or in the evening for after school snack. This is similar to cucumber dosa. I always add coconut to such dosa. It gives rich tate to the dosa.. After making juice from the red portion of the watermelon, the remaining white portion is used to make dosa. If you are making dosa using watermelon rind, peel the skin and use the white part.

Bhindi masala recipe - Ladies finger or bhindi is one of my favorite vegetables. This is a perishable vegetable and it should be used when it is fresh. Even in the refrigerator the ladies finger gets spoiled quickly. I buy okras in small quantity and love to make either bhindi masala, bhindi sambar, kadai bhindi, bhindi raita, bharli bhindi or bhende sukke. In this dish the ladies finger gets flavor from the mustard seeds, curry leaves, asafoetida, coriander seeds powder and chilly powder. Fresh coocnut adds an extra taste to the dish.You can make this dish to pack in the lunch box with some soft chapati. This is a very eays recipe that you can make quickly within few minutes.

Muga mole randayi recipe - Muga mole randayi is one of the famous and common sabzi varieties of Karnataka and every house hold has its own version to prepare it. Muga mole literally means sprouted green grams and randayi means thick coconut based sabzi which is also known as palya in kannada.The sprouted green grams and raw banana combination is awesome and it is my favorite too. This palya is perfect with hot chapati, phulka, rice rotti and stemed rice.It is very flavorful with the addition of freshly ground masla. The spices in the masala adds inviting aroma and the chilly powder adds taste and the coconut gives a thick consistency to the palya. For a variation you can use potato in the place of plantain and that combination also tastes great.

Shyavige uppittu recipe - Shyavige uppittu, popularly known as sevai upma is a best way to use some vegetables and vermicelli together. Mostly, I make vermicelli kheer in combination with sago, but upma with sevai also tastes equally good. If you make upma for breakfast, you can roast the vermicelli well in advance at night. Also you can chop the carrots and place it in the refrigerator for the further use. It looks so attractive with carrot and green peas and can be a pleaser for kids. I made it yesterday for breakfast and make often at least once in a fortnight. I also make upma with semolina and oats. Sevai upma is so simple to prepare that you can try for evening teatime snack.
