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.

Refined Sugar-Free Quinoa Digestives: Fiber Rich, Nutrient Dense, Sugarless Quinoa Recipe

Have you heard of quinoa digestives? I did an Internet search to find it out, but couldn't trace any quinoa digestives recipe. Perhaps we have yet not moved to supergrains when it comes to digestives. When it comes to digestives, most of us can't think beyond whole wheat flour and oats. Perhaps dgestives require fiber-rich oats because it gives the biscuit the perfect digestives structure. I love oats so much so that I have compiled a collection of over 200 oats recipes. Now coming to quinoa digestives recipe, I have tried out too many digestives, including amaranth digestives, pistachio digestives, Mcvities digestives, and Nutri choice-like digestives. This time I wanted to skip whole wheat and include quinoa. Yes, if you remember, I have already shared a few quinoa recipes here, including quinoa nankhatais without baking soda/baking powder.

What I did next was exactly this!
My goal with each recipe is to get the better out of me!  Quinoa substitutes whole wheat
Yes, my dear…

Kid-Friendly Badam Oats Cookies: Sugarfree, Fiber Rich, Eggless

Recently, there is a Sunfeast advertisement on Moms Magic cookies. This has attracted my attention. So what happened next is history. As you already know me, the cookie big has bitten me badly, so I jumped into experimenting with badam cookies. I have never tasted these cookies from Sunfeast, as I do not buy outside biscuits these days. So the oats cookie recipe is the result of my own healthy baking experiment. Did the experiment disappoint?
Of course, not!

You have got to be a cookie lover to try out a new cookie every other day. My airfryer has made life easier for me, and I find it the best investment for my baking journey.

Ever since my airfryer homecoming, I have always chosen to go for airfryer cookies, and not touched my convection ever since. That's the beauty of airfryer baking.

Okay, so let's come back to the badam cookie recipe. Did I say this is a no raising agent cookie recipe?
