ID- Ragi Paniyaram with Dill and Onions - Slurpy Platter

I love millets and my diet is mainly comprised of at least one millet that I use to make my meals. Ragi, for one is great with fiber and also known to have cooling properties. Of course, not to forget the potassium and calcium that entail it 🙂 No wonder it is a staple in most households in Karnataka. It takes longer to digest, hence leaving you full and preventing you from binge eating, while also strengthening your bones.

Having said this, I’m a hardcore no-readymade-store-bought-batter kinda person who prefers to make idli/dose (dosa) batter at home, since I have a mini version of me who needs to be fed all-in-all-homemade-stuff 🙂

But, when you’re pressed for time and have those unusually lazy mornings when all you need is a quick brekkie then the last resort would be to make an instant dosa or make do with cereals. This time though I tried the ID Ragi batter, and to my surprise the paniyarams turned out to be really soft, fluffy and flavourful.

The best part is that the dill and onions gave it a really nice flavour. ID batter does not use preservatives and soda either, so this was a welcome change in the breakfast menu from the usual grind.

When you have a really hectic morning and if you have to make a quick breakfast, all you need is a handful of dill leaves and an onion plus a few chillis that you need to fry and add to the batter, and pour them into paniyaram pans to get fluffy paddu that goes well with coconut chutney or chutney pudi (well, it is totally your choice as to what you want to pair it with). But, if you have a strong dislike towards dill (cuz of its overpowering flavour, which , by the way I love, You can substitute it with spinach or methi or just do with the onions). Either ways, these paniyarams are great for breakfast or even a light dinner if you prefer.

So here is a really simple recipe for dill and onion paniyaram.

PS: The batter is slightly salted and you might want to add a lil more salt if you prefer. Suggest, you try making one or two paniyarams and then adjust the salt as per your preference.

Ingredients
  • 1Cup SugarBrown sugar also works but you'll get a darker caramel sauce
  • 60ml WaterRoom temperature
  • 1/2Cup ButterSoft, At Room temperature
  • 3/4Cup Fresh CreamI used Amul
Instructions
  1. In a heavy bottomed pan, add sugar and water(on medium flame), bring to a boil and scrape the side very slowly and ensure the sugar dissolves and the crystals don't stick to the pan. Do this till the mixture attains a light amber colour or turns slightly golden brown.
  2. Now add the butter and stir slowly until it melts. The mixture will now bubble up slightly.
  3. At this point, keep the flame completely low or take the pan off the heat and add the cream. The mixture will bubble up rapidly. Keep stirring and scraping the sides as the sauce may appear to bubble up. Check for smoothness and ensure there are no lumps. Cool the sauce completely and transfer it to an airtight container. It has lasted me for more than a month so ensure you refrigerate it properly.

Korean Japchae Noodles Recipe (Sweet Potato Starch Noodles)

Korean Japchae Noodles Recipe (Sweet Potato Starch Noodles)

This classic Korean Japchae Noodles (sweet potato noodles) is a popular Korean delicacy that has a melange of stir-fried vegetables, with a savoury sauce.

Japchae - Sweet-Potato Noodles- Slurpy Platter

When I first heard/wrote about Japchae while I was working for my client (have written so much about Asian cuisine that I can probably hold a P.hd in authentic and modern Asian cuisine :P) back in my office days, I used to wonder what it tasted like. I was curious as hell! Then, after a successful campaign the client decided to send us all a huge goodie bag of Asian products which also had these sweet potato noodles.

If you’re wondering, what is Japchae

It is no different from our (seviya), just that it is made from Sweet potato starch. It is also known as Korean glass noodles and it means – jap meaning “mix” and chae meaning “vegetable”. Sweet potato is a healthier option compared to other noodles as it is rich in fiber and lesser carbs.

Japchae is chewy in nature and is kinda pale grey in colour. It is typically prepared with dangmyeon, a type of cellophane noodles made from sweet potato starch. You could find these sweet potato noodles at places such as Foodhall, Nature’s basket or Asian food stores that sell gourmet stuff. 

Japchae - Sweet-Potato Noodles- Slurpy Platter

The best bet would be to get someone to carry it for you if they’re coming from US, AU or any other South East Asian country. Of course there’s no substitute for sweet potato starch noodles, however, if you have no access to any of these special food stores in India, you can buy the sweet pototo noodles here if it is in stock. Or you could use Thai rice/glass noodles which is again a good option.

Japchae was once a royal dish in the Korean cuisine. Now it is usually served on special ocassions such as weddings, gatherings and birthdays. It was also a side dish (Banchan) earlier. The Koreans take their side dishes (Banchan) very seriously as they have various health benefits and the process of making them involves fermentation in earthen pots. There are at least 300 different kinds of Kimchi that you could find in the Korean cuisine.  So much about Japchae and Korean cuisine happened right? 🙂 I absolutely LUUUURVVV Asian cuisine after Indian because of the diversity and also, for the fact that most of their customs are similar to our culture(Esp Thailand, Malaysia and Indonesia).
