Today i'm sharing an another interesting and healthy recipe prepared from Vallarai Keerai / Brahmi Leaves. I was looking for some baked indian snacks when i got this idea of baked keerai vadai. I was not sure about the correct oven temp and settings. I referred Priya akka's recipe for the oven temperature and also referred a tamil cookbook for the recipe. I have modified most of the ingredients. I made 4 Baked Masala Vadai & 3 Deep Fried Vadai from the Batter. Do try this healthy version of south-India's famous Snack. Lets check the recipe,

Vallarai Keerai Sambar, an another variety of south-Indian style curry which is healthy and also very filling. Just like other sambar varieties, mashed toor dal is cooked with Vallarai Keerai. Some like to add grated coconut, but i'm not comfortable with that. 
The most important seasoning ingredient of any south-Indian style veg curries is Vadagam which gives a nice aroma. You will get it in any local grocery stores. I have already shared "Vallarai Keerai kootu" recipe, and will try to share many other varieties with this Keerai. Lets move on to today's recipe,

Samai Thayir Sadam / Little Millet Curd Rice, a perfect lunch option to beat the summer. Instead of regular white rice, i have tried this with Little Millet. You can try this with any millet rice varieties.
I dont have any special likings for curd rice. Even in marriages or any other functions, i try to avoid this rice and better go with kara kuzhambu or vathal kuzhambu. I always keep looking for something spicy to keep my tummy filling. I got this millets recipes book from an organic store. While i was looking for something to try, i got the recipe for Kambu Thayir Sorru. Instead of Kambu, i tried it with Samai. This tastes even better than normal Curd Rice. Lets check the recipe,
