When its panniyaram, I always make sweet one for snacks ( may be because of my sweet tooth).My daughter always insist me to make kara/savory.Very rare I make kara panniyaram by mixing residual idli batter with avaliable flours in my pantry.One day when I want to make a different dinner apart from roti/rice I made this panniyaram with my left over millet dough along with fresh vegetables.Here I have used the vegetable as such but if you prefer you can slightly saute them in oil and add it to the batter.
Mango chia seeds pudding is a vegan pudding made with coconut milk, chia seeds & mango pulp.This is my first vegan dessert and last mango recipe of the year.I mostly prefer/use milk in my dessert since my kids were fond of the coconut flavor in desserts.A packet of chia seeds was left unnoticed for a long time and want to use it soon.If you don't have this chia seeds you can also use sabja seeds which will be used in falooda.Making this dessert it so easily the only time consuming one is the time needed for the seeds to soak in coconut milk otherwise it will be
ready in few minutes.
Idiyappam/ string hoppers is a food which is soft,steam cooked and is easily digested by all all age groups of people.When kids or people fall sick and in recovery stage doctor mostly refers easily digestible steamed food like idli or idiyappam.When it is idiyappam for dinner my kids will be waiting to indulge init.Mostly I serve with plain red coconut chutney and very rarely some non-veg dish.
