Navrati / Golu just started and its 9 days of celebration. Navrati / Golu is starting this 21st Sep, Thursday and I am sure the next two weekends will be busy with visiting friends and family. That also means celebration through food. I love this season of the year. Navrati rolls into Halloween followed by Diwali then Thanksgiving, Karthikai, Christmas, New Year and Pongal in January.The next few months is going to be so busy.
This year I am unable to host a golu party as we are renovating my kitchen and the house is pretty messy (well, except the living/reading room I mentioned yesterday). But I will make sundals everyday to offer as a prasadam to God. I have created a “Golu Menu Plan” which might be useful for some of you. Do read my post about Navrati / Golu here. As much as I want to make elaborate food for my family, I am tied to a tight timeline. In between work, kid’s classes, I need to come up with healthy, simple yet nutritious meal options. My kids love dosa with my homemade ghee with sugar or sambar , chutneys or homemade yogurt.
My top priority to-do thing on a Sunday is to grind dosa batter. I have shared the recipe for the same here. On days when I don’t want to grind the dosa batter, I buy a tub from Indian store. I mix about 1/4-1/2 cup of dosa batter with 1 cup water and 1/2 cup or more multigrain flour (sathumaavu). You can add any flour you want. It could be finger millet, whole wheat, oats, horse gram, green gram. I pair the meal with salad and a dip. In this picture you will see that my dinner was 2 multigrain dosa with poondu kozhambhu (garlic-tamarind sauce) and salad. You can serve them as uthappam or paniyaram too. I make thin lacy ones. It reminded me of Ethiopian Injera breads.
- Dosa batter as required
- 1/2-1 cup water
- 1/2 cup multigrain flour or any flour of your choice
- 1 onion, finely chopped (optional for kids)
- 1 green chilly, minced (optional for kids)
- Mix them all and make dosas or uthappam. Serve hot with a dip and salad
