Cheddar Cheese Sandwiches


          As I had mentioned in my earlier post, I had bought this very good quality cheddar cheese from the mall here. I had used it in a few dishes, these sandwiches being one of them. This is a very simple recipe, I have used just some spring onions and tomatoes along with the cheese. The sandwiches tasted too good, they are very filling too and we loved the cheddar cheese, tomato and spring onion combo..

Cabbage Akki Roti, Cabbage Rice Roti


          Akki Rotis are simple and delicious rotis made using rice flour ( akki meaning rice in Kannada ), very popular dish in Karnataka and they make many varieties, plain ones and then so many versions using different vegetables. The first few times that I made them, I usually make a dough just like we make it for rotis, later I learnt that it should be slightly wet dough, this gives you much softer and delicious rotis. I adapted the recipe from here, and I have added finely chopped cabbage to the dough. The rotis came out too good and we loved it with peanut chutney..

Poricha Rasam


          I make rasam only once or twice a week, because it's only during the weekends, we have a full course meal for lunch, the other days I pack lunch, it's either rotis or some rice and most of the days and I make only the simple tomato and garlic rasam, once in a while I make a different one. Coming to today's Poricha Rasam, we use two varieties of dal/lentils, tuvar and moong dal and a ground paste of coconut and other spices. This rasam is slightly thicker and the flavor from the ground paste is awesome and usually I make this rasam on days that I don't make sambar. When mixed with rice, it tastes divine with some pappads or potato curry on the side..

Jackfruit Seeds Cutlet, Kathal Bij-Er Chop, Palakottai Cutlets


          The next dish that I had tried this Jackfruit season are these Cutlets With Jackfruit Seeds, Palakottai Cutlets. It's actually a Bengali dish, called as Kathal Bij-Er Chop, we use mashed jackfruit seeds and potatoes along with other spices and crushed peanuts, shape them into cutlets and deep fry them, but I have shallow fried them to keep it a little healthy. These cutlets can be served as a snack along with some tomato sauce, but I am telling you, they tasted so good that we didn't need anything to go with it. You can also serve them as a side to go with any meal, do try this before the jackfruit season ends..
