Some days back we had been to Tea House Restaurant in Bengaluru. There we saw Onion Rigs in the Menu.So we order it. Onion Rings along with Coffee tasted Great.

Today it was raining heavily in Benagaluru. I thought of preparing something Hot and Spicy.So Suddenly I remembered Onion Rings and Prepared it. Here is the recipe:)

Heat Oil for deep frying. Dip each onion disc on the batter prepared and fry till golden Brown.Serve Hot with tomato Sauce or Ketchup.

Soppina Sambar[Type 1]

Bengaluru style of Soppina Sambar has an authentic taste. Mostly Soppina Sambar is made with Danttina soppu.I really love to have it with Ragi mudde.

You need to Have:

Bunch of Amaranth Leaves/Dantina Soopu
1 cup toor dal
1 cup grated coconut
2 chopped tomatoes
1 tbs sambar powder
1 tbs Salt
1 tbs Khus Khus(Gasgase)
8-10 garlic flakes
1 large onion
small piece of cinnamon
2 Marathi Moggu
bunch of coriander leaves
1 tsp Oil
1/4 tsp mustard seeds

Cook the toor dal in pressure cooker for 3-4 whistles. Mean while remove outer cover of onion and place it in micro mode of micro oven for 3 minutes.If not then put onion on fire for 6-7 min.

Finely Chop Amaranth Leaves and wash it 2-3 times and keep it aside.

Add grated coconut,chopped tomatoes,sambar powder,Khus Khus,onion,cinnamon,Marathi Moggu , coriander leaves into mixer and make a smooth paste.Keep it aside.

In a thick bottomed vessel add oil and mustard seed , once it starts spluttering, Add chopped
Amaranth Leaves and cook it for 10 mins. Add ground masala ,Cooked toor dal and mix well.Keep this on flame for another 8-10 min .

Serve with Ragi mudde or Rice.

Ragi Mudde

Ragi ... also known as millet. is rich in calcium iron, protein and some rare nutrients such as methionine. Methionine assists in the breakdown of fats and thereby prevents the build-up of fat in the arteries, as well as assisting with the digestive system and removing heavy metals from the body. Digests easily from infancy through old age, and its nutrients are highly absorbed. Costs less than wheat, rice, or dairy milk, while delivering superior nutrition.


Mom prepares varieties of food from Ragi . Ragi Mudde, Ragi Dosa, Ragi Biscut , Ragi Hurihittu and Ragi Halbayi are few amongst them.

Me and my husband are great lover's of Ragi Mudde.Yesterday night I prepared it and served it with Soppina Sambar,and here is the recipe of delicious Ragi Mudde.

Ragi Mudde:

You will need:

2 cups Ragi flour
4 cups Water
1 tbs salt
4-5 tbs Rice(optional)

Boil water in a thick bottomed vessel. add 1 tbs salt and 5 tbs of cooked rice.Adding rice is optional.

In a small bowl add 2tbs of Ragi flour ,10 tbs of water and mix well.Add this to boiling water.let it boil for 2-3 min. This method will prevents formation of lumps in Ragi mudde.

Next add remaining Ragi flour to it. Don't still immediately. let water flow over Ragi Flour.

Then stir well making sure that it doesn't form any lumps. (I stir it with the help of wooden spatula.). keep this on sim for 8 min.

Take out from flame and make small balls out of it. keep ice cubes beside you . Hands will get hot so frequenty apply ice cubes on your hands.

Server Hot along with Ghee and Soppina Sambar.
It increases the taste if Sambar is sprinkled with Lemon juice.
