Palak Dal Rasam / Keerai Paruppu Rasam, today I'm sharing another variation of regular rasam which can be prepared with spinach puree or any other keerai variety.
As we know rasam is good for health and also light to tummy, make it more healthy with an addition of spinach along with cooked toor dal. Serve it either with hot cooked rice or just sip it as soup.
I felt photos have come really bad either because of my bad mood or it was difficult to shoot rasam on a brown board. Whatever it is, but i really enjoyed the rasam with Boiled Egg Fry and Sambar Sadam / Rice.

Lemon Pepper Roasted Chicken / Whole Roasted Chicken


Lemon Pepper Roasted Chicken / Whole Roasted Chicken
Lemon Pepper Roasted Chicken / Whole Roasted Chicken

Whole Roasted Chicken with Lemon & Pepper, a simple yet delicious whole roasted chicken which can be enjoyed with Mayonnaise or Mint-Coriander Chutney. This is first time i tried to roast a whole chicken which was pending in my to do list for a long while. I bookmarked this recipe from Priya's Space. The moment i saw this recipe on her blog, i wanted to try it badly. 
The whole preparation is simple, but takes time for marination. You can either marinate it for 3 hrs or can do it overnight. Remember to wash your hands properly while handling the chicken in order to prevent bacterial infection.  I brushed the chicken with little olive oil before baking. This is optional. You can also add little garam masala or tandoori masala powder for additional flavors. Lets check the recipe,

Saamai Arisi Ladoo / Little Millet Laddu - Millet Recipes

Saamai Arisi Ladoo / Little Millet Laddu

Samai Arisi Ladoo / Little Millet Laddu, i have shared two versions of ladoo here. The dry ladoo is prepared without milk. And it will be little harder similar to Porulvilangai Urundai. The soft ladoo is made adding milk and it has less shelf life. You should consume it within 2-3 days.
To make it more healthy, i have also Health Mix Powder which is optional. You can skip it and add little cardamom powder for nice flavor. You can try this laddu with any other millets and can replace jaggery with sugar. But i would suggest jaggery or karupatti for more healthier option.
