Sathumaavu Modhagam|Multigrain Modhaks|Sathumaavu Kozhukkattai

Sathumaavu Modhagam|Multigrain Modhaks|Sathumaavu Kozhukkattai:


As mentioned in moong dhal modhagam post, I have been waiting to try a proper and perfect modhagam this year. Last year I made kambu maavu kozhukkattai with nuts filling but I didn’t have a proper shape.T his year I luckily got a mould and also learnt all secret tips from the experts in the family to make soft and spongy modaks. After learning everything wouldn’t be unfair if I just try a usual one? So I made a try with sathumaavu/multigrain health drink mix along with yellow moong dal stuffing. Kitchen Kathukutty should always stick to the purpose of the blog too? Right?. It was extremely good and there was no huge difference in taste too. I am sure all mothers will happily try this recipe and kids will enjoy this version of sathumaavu

Moong Dhal Modhagam|Moong Dhal Kozhukkattai|Paasi Payaru Kozhukkattai

Moong Dhal Modhagam|Moong Dhal Kozhukkattai|Paasi Paruppu Kozhukkattai:

I hope all of you are geared up for Vinayagar Chathurthi Celebrations. I have been waiting to try a modhagam recipe and share my blog for 2 weeks but it happened only today morning. I didn’t plan anything. I had some dhal made for my son for today’s lunch and I had rice flour and tada…Modhak was done.It is Moong Dhal Modhagam. I am a beginner and all time failure when it comes to modhagam. I miss something or the other every time. Last year I had made bajra/kambu/pearl millet flour kozhukkattai with dry fruit and nut stuffing. I missed clicking on a few steps and haven’t posted it on my blog. It was almost close to perfect. This time I collected enough tips from every master chef of the family and tried two variants and they came out so well. I made exactly 4 with a small quantity for each variety. I am sharing the measurements for a higher quantity. Without much delay, I am getting to the recipe of yellow moong dhal /paasi payaru modhagam.

Paneer Tikka Recipe-In Oven/OTG

Paneer Tikka Recipe:

Our family is a huge fan of tandoori paneer tikka. We used to make it so often during the early of our purchase of our OTG. Little one loves it to be served with the skewers. He finds the paneer tikka recipe to be so interesting to grab from the skewers. My best half loves only paneer tikka when it comes to paneer recipes due to the spicy nature of the recipe. I just followed the recipe available with the manual. The recipe is the same for baby potato tikka too.

Spinach Soup for Babies, Toddlers and Kids:

Spinach/Keerai/Greens-All of us are very well aware that they are rich in nutrients and every parent would have a huge struggle making kids consume keerai/spinach.

Chettinad Urulai Curry-Small Potato Gravy



Chettinadu Urulai Curry-Chettinadu cuisine is known for its unique flavours and taste. We had bought a bag of small potatoes and I had to make different recipes with it to finish the stock. I made a biriyani, simple gravies, deep fry, shallow fry and tikka. I had this recipe in my mind for a long time and I tried as I had to finish the stock too. The recipe of Chettinad Urulai Curry/Small Potato Gravy is very simple and it can be made in a jiffy. We relished it with rice. You can serve the Chettinad Urulai Curry with dosa/idly and even rotis. Today being teachers day I extend my warm wishes and heartfelt gratitude to all my teachers through my school and college and all my mentors at work and life. This is the noblest profession and I salute all real noble souls. Continue reading “Chettinad Urulai Curry-Small Potato Gravy”

Cheesy Corn Fusilli-Whole Wheat Pasta

Cheesy Corn Fusilli-Whole Wheat Pasta:

I am a die-hard fan of pasta/macaroni especially the cheesy white sauce ones. You may even notice that one of my earliest posts was white sauce pasta. Like Mother, Like son- This little miracle of us also loves pasta varieties. When he began exploring and loving them I had to look deeper into the nutrition details of the pasta because most of them are maida/refined flour based. Initially, I had a belief that durum wheat pasta was better when compared to maida based ones. But unfortunately, it is not so 100%. Whole wheat pasta is the best in terms of nutrition. You can find the various brands of whole wheat pasta available below and click to buy from here. Continue reading “Cheesy Corn Fusilli-Whole Wheat Pasta”
