Tava Pulao | Bombay Pulao

This pulao is very popular & tasty dish. I have seen it being made only in Mumbai. Made by the PaoBhaaji waalas and also in many restaurants. This is made on a Tava & hence called Tava Pulao Simple to make & super tasty too. At home we normally do think about things such as hygenic OR whether it has too much grease or oily fats etc., but in eatouts / restaurants we tend to ignore OR not bother about this. Sometimes we all tend to think that if something is readily available in restaurants why take the stress to try it at home. I am also guilty of this thought so many times & I have also proven myself wrong. Trying foods at home, which was eaten or liked elsewhere, is not a bad idea at all. We can also make it more grease free and/or hygenic. This rice i usually make for lunch box or brunch. Curds or Raita go well with this rice.

Pairthuparppu Vade | Moong Dal Vade

This is the one more simple vade recipe. Similar like ambode but different method and procedure. Best suits for rasam rice or with coconut chutney. Today is Sankranti festival and wishing all my viewers a very happy pongal and makara sankranti. We can add Onions too to this recipe and it will be a different & also quite tasty.
