Deep fried foods are perfect for cold weather right..But I do feel a little bit guilty when I eat these kinds of dishes, because this drastically affects my waistline..But if I make this I can enjoy it with no guilty feeling..Its because this recipe has tons and tons of veggies as you can see in the pictures..And I know this does good for me too..

I love sweet corn in any thing. I even add sweet corn in the pulav which I make. I love sweet corn soup and sweet corn fritters. When I feel hungry and I don’t feel like cooking anything then what I do is, I take a cup of frozen sweetcorn and microwave it for 5 mins..Then add a blob of butter with some salt and pepper and dig in straight away. I even add some desi spices like chat masala or channa masala in this too..

I love to have light and healthy breakfast..I don’t like to have sweet stuffs for breakfast. Most of the days my breakfast will be some juice or fruits. I often have bread with egg, and I love it too. But some day I don’t like to have eggs in the morning, then I was trying to get some egg substitute in my dishes ..Hence this dish was invented.

As I promised I am delivering you amma’s special appam recipe. This is one of those recipe which stayed in our home for centuries. Amma makes appam like this always. Everyone have their own way of making appam batter, but I think this is the simplest one. Traditionally this is made in a appa chati, but you could easily make this in regular tawa..But you won’t get the shape of traditional appam. But its ok as long as it taste same.

Amma makes a huge batch of dosa batter each weekend which will last us for that whole week..For grinding this, she uses a old fashioned big wet grinder which we are having for more than 25 years..While she plan to grind dosa batter, she also make appam batter and ada batter in the same day to prevent less washing of dishes..Sometimes she makes vada batter too..

I love cooking with paneer often because it taste so awesome and my siblings love this a lot. The cool thing about paneer is, since it is so bland it picks up all the flavours which we add into it..
This recipe is so simple but definitely rich in taste...I served it with paper roast and it was a total hit.You could actually make some chapati or naan to go with it.
