Keerai vadai, an easy, crispy Indian snack made with urad dal, spinach & fresh coriander. How to make keerai vadai recipe or Tamil Nadu keerai medu vadai
I always have left over Idlis when I prepare Idlis for breakfast or dinner. When I am in need of a quick snack, all I do is saute the crumbled cold refrigerated idlis with a spiced base of onions and lots of fresh coriander leaves. I tend to play with the spices each time I go the crumbled idli upma way.
Amaranth leaves are much loved in our home and take the form of stir fry, dal and stews in our daily meals. In recent past, I have used these nutritious greens along with chick pea flour (besan) to prepare fritters. They are easy to make, work great as appetizers for parties and also make for a wonderful tea time snack.
I have a lot of childhood memories associated with this savory snack. My Ammamma and Amma would prepare huge quantities of Maida Biscuits (the name they go by at home) and store them in large containers. Back from school, we would head straight to the pantry and grab a plateful of maida biscuits and savor them like there was no tomorrow. Maida chips, maida biscuits, diamond cuts, maida squares, khara biscuits, whatever the name, they were extremely popular among us kids and friends.
With 4 slices of left over bread and boiled potatoes (prepared Aloo parathas yesterday), I prepared quick bread cutlets for our evening tea snack. Not much of a recipe really, used left overs that I combined with spices, chopped onions and fresh coriander leaves and shallow fried till golden crisp. Fun, fast, healthy and tasty alternate to deep fried snacks.
Its not everyday that I find myself sitting in the verandah overlooking the garden, relishing deep-fried comforts over a cup of masala chai. Well, today was one such day that I treated myself to a crispy North Indian snack over a cup of hot chai. I prepared Matri that makes a great snack with tea. […]
This corn snack is a regular at my home. I use left over cooked rice as a binding ingredient instead of potato. Very tasty afternoon snack to go with a hot cup of tea.
