    Surprise the “surpriser” recipe

    Loved that concept, ArSu. Btw, do you not have to wash the rice and toor dal before grinding them?

  12. shynee Says:

    I have added this to my to do list and shall definitely leave my feed back…thanx for sharing!!

  13. ArSu Says:

    Yes Vaishali you need to wash and dry them before u make rava out of them.

    Hi Shynee!
    So delighted to hear that you will try it soon. Hope you’ll like it.

    Nice recipe. Nice Blog. Thanx for sharing your recipe.

    Pleasure is mine. Thanks for stopping by!

    Hey ArSu,
    That was a neat quickfix for unexpected guests! Really makes sense to keep a readymix powder stored for immediate use in the refrigerator. The patties bear a striking resemblance to the “adai” preparation of Tamil Nadu. For adais, we coarsely blend together one measure of raw rice, one measure of polished rice, half measure of toor dal, half measure of gram dal and 1 tablespoon of urad dal. Finely chopped onions, a pinch of asofoetida, powdered red chillies, cumin seeds and finely chopped curry leaves are then added to this and cooked on the tava like your patties.

    Hi Meenakshi ! Welcome to by blog. I am happy that you liked the idea of the readymix powder. We do prepare adai but your recipe sounds interesting and delicious. Thanks for sharing the recipe. Hope you would visit me often and offer your valuable suggestions. 🙂

    Hi ArSu,
    We are just about setting up our blog and are quite excited about it. We do have a website http://www.pritya.com. We are still trying to figure out wordpress fully. I really like your blog layout – simple and smart. I notice that the latest comments appear in the side bar. Did you do it up yourself?

    Hi Pritya,

    I have heard from fellow bloggers about ” Cooking at home with Pedatha ” and from the description and pictures from your website I am inspired in buying a copy soon. I am really looking forward for your blog, I am sure everyone would enjoy it.

    I am glad that you liked the layout of my blog :-). Regarding the “recent comments” on the side bar, It’s already available in the layout template in WordPress along with other choices like Search, Flickr, Meebo (a web-based instant message service that lets your blog visitors having account in major IM services like YahooMessenger,Msn Chat,GoogleTalk etc., to chat with the you in a browser window), Archives, Blog Statistics etc., Depending upon the layout template we choose in WordPress, these options may vary slightly. Hope this would help. I would be glad to help you further, if you need. You can also reach me at flavourride@gmail.com. Happy blogging!:-)

    Awesome article. There’s a lot of great data right here, though I would like to let you know something – I am running Ubuntu with the up-to-date beta of Firefox, and the layout of your site is sort of bizarre for me. I could understand the post, but the navigation does not function so good.
