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.

I follow various methods to prepare potato fry. This is first time i tried Sweet Potato with some spices. I got this idea from a regional cookery show. But i made use of regular set of ingredients used to prepare Potato Varuval. This varuval was spicy and also sweet.
In another method, you can try adding sambar powder instead of red chili powder. Just skip cumin seeds and pepper powder. Instead add fennel seeds while tampering mustard seeds. There are various ways to prepare simple potato varuval with variation in ingredients. Lets check the recipe,
