Chakuli - Odisha's Dosa

chakli- odisha's dosa
Chakuli - A breakfast option from Odisha

This recipe uses the traditional same dosa ingredients, with the only difference being that it is softer to touch, feel, and relish. Makes a wholesome lunch meal as well.

I learned this recipe from my mother in law, who has amazing culinary skills. Chakuli is widely common in Odisha and savored as a breakfast or lunch. I can eat it for dinner as well.














Ingredients
2 cups- rice
1 cup- black lentils (urad dal)
1 tbsp- fenugreek seeds (methi dana) - optional

Other ingredients
oil
salt






Procedure
odisha dosa

  • Soak these three ingredients separately for 7-8 hours. I usually soak them overnight and grind them in the morning.
  • Next day, I grind these together without water.
  • Keep these aside for fermentation for another 4-5 hours. I usually leave them as such until evening.
  • When you are ready to make chakli, mix the batter well.
  • Take out the batter that you want to use instantly and keep the rest in refrigerator, especially during summers, as it risks getting sour. I usually make idlis with the remaining batter, so do not add water in the entire batter.
  • Add water to make the batter just like dosa batter. It should not be too runny, nor should it be too thick. Add salt as per taste.
  • Heat a tawa.
  • Pour 1 tsp of oil. Once it reaches smoking point, take a laddle full of the batter and pour over the oil. Spread it evenly on all sides. Do not use much force.
  • Chaklis are usually thicker than dosa.
  • Once done, flip the side and let it roast.
  • Enjoy with coconut chutney or any other chutney of your choice.
  • I usually make sambar aloo to enjoy chakli.

Eggless Cake Without Raising Agents: A No Baking Powder, No Baking Soda Sponge Cake Recipe

When you are able to bake an eggless cake without raising agents, your happiness knows no bounds, right? This is exactly what I am in for today. What started as an experiment has worked out wonders for me.


I was trying to hone my cake baking skills while learning a few baking basics. Then struck this idea of baking a cake without baking powder or baking soda. A loved one is suffering from histamine sensitivity, and these chemical agents trigger urticaria, which gives me goosebumps. So I decided to go the other way round - baking an eggless cake without raising agents.

You need a light flour here - something that would effectively replace maida/all-purpose flour/refined flour/white flour. I remember one dhaba wala telling me once about how they replace maida sometimes - using a mix of jau and rice flour.

So this is exactly what I needed. This has given me one of the simplest yet tastiest cakes. Please do not change the flours, as I am unsure how any other flour would work here. I will…

Think of South Indian food, and idli, sambar, and dosa would strike your mind first of all! Isn't it?






















Yes, this is the quintessential south Indian menu that has become widely popular world over for its rich taste, unique flavors, and nutritional boost! Well, this is exactly what inspires most of us north Indians to cook south Indian food. I  must admit I love Chettinad cuisine, Malayali food, and of course, Tamil recipes.
