Fluffy as cotton balls, white as the moon’ - every South Indian
remembers those fond descriptions of Idli that mom used to convince them to eat breakfast when they were kids.
Indeed, that is how the perfect Idli must be too. Grinding of batter and the preparation of Idli is an almost daily affair in South Indian homes. Being a safe, tasty and wholesome breakfast, it is preferred by people all over the world now.
Choose good quality par-boiled rice (ask for idli rice, which is small and stout) and urad for making idlis, as the colour and softness of the end product depends on it.
The amount of water to be added when grinding the urad changes according to the quality of the dal, so keep adding little by little till the batter is soft and fluffy, and do not make it watery.
After making the required idlis store the remaining batter in the fridge. It remains good for almost a week, and can be used to make Sada Dosa
and dainty Appe
Readymade popcorn is nice and crunchy when you buy the tub and munch on it right away. But, if you buy a large quantity and bring it home for a party or get-together, it loses its crunch in no time at all! Why opt for that option, when you can easily make crisp and fresh popcorn right at home, that too very easily in the microwave oven.
A microwave-safe bowl, butter, salt, maize kernels, and a few minutes are all that you need to conjure up yummy popcorn! You can have the Microwave Popcorn plain or with your favourite seasonings!
Mumbai’s very own burger. The vada is made of a spicy potato filling deep fried in a gram flour batter. Along with a hot and spicy garlic chutney, it is served inside a small "Laddi Pav".
I have fond memories of sharing a vada pav with my son while travelling on a business trip to Vapi by train.
Although vada pav is a Maharashtrian
dish, I was surprised to find it popular even in Gujarat. Another travelling ritual on my frequent drives to Pune is to stop at a small café on the highway to grab a quick vada pav and a steaming hot cup of Masala Tea
that chases away all my travel fatigue
Chaklis are an indispensable snack for the Diwali season! Not only are they ideal to accompany the sweets you share with friends and family, but they also come in handy when you want to have a quick snack with tea. Made of spiced rice flour bound by curds and butter to make a soft dough, chaklis are super-crisp deep-fried savouries, which can be easily preserved for around two weeks provided you keep them in a dry and airtight container. While you might initially find it difficult to press out the chaklis into perfect circles, it will be a breeze once you get the hang of it!
The Veg Frankie of Mumbai is now so famous that you can find Frankie stalls all over the country – in parks and beaches, on the street and in food courts.
A satiating snack
that can be relished even on-the-go, the Veg Frankie is made by rolling up a tongue-tickling potato mixture inside roti wraps.
It is one of Mumbai’s most famous roadside snacks and its a very appetising experience to watch the Frankie-wala deftly preparing one.
The rotis are made beforehand, but cooked again with butter before making the Frankie. It’s not just the masaledar potato mixture that makes the Frankie so tasty but also the crunch of onions and the tangy masala water that’s sprinkled on it.
Every single ingredient – from the butter-cooked rotis to the tangy water, the crunchy onions and zesty Frankie masala – contributes to the flavour of the Veg Frankie.
Follow this authentic recipe to recreate the magic in your own kitchen. There are many more variants of this versatile and handy snack, including Jain, Schezwan and Cheesy versions.

or Schezuan Chopsuey Dosa
A handy snack of puffed rice and peanuts sautéed with garlic, curry leaves and spice powders. The addition of red chilli powder adds a spicy dimension to the Kolhapuri Bhadang Murmura, which is highlighted well by the addition of a wee bit of sugar! The crispness of the peanuts is a wonderful value-add to this snack, as it complements the melt-in-the-mouth texture of murmura quite effectively.
Make a batch of this spicy snack and keep it on hand, to munch on whenever you are hungry. You can enjoy it as it is, or with a dash of lemon juice and grated veggies like carrots and raw mango. It is also ideal to carry along when you travel because it is quite filling.

Rice Appe is a simply awesome snack, which can be had as a tea-time treat or served along with idli, pongal, dosa or khichdi to add more josh to your breakfast. Made by cooking a fermented batter of rice and urad dal in an appe mould, the appe are crisp outside but soft and spongy inside. A tempering of mustard and cumin seeds together with onions and crushed peanuts give the Rice Appe an amazing taste and mouth-feel, which make it enticing to young and old alike. You can enjoy the appe just plain or with your choice of sambhar and chutney. Make sure you serve it immediately to enjoy the nice crispness. Once it cools, the crisp outer tends to harden and get a bit chewy.
Khaman dhokla, a famous snack sold in every street of Gujarat, it is no longer restricted to that region -- it is readily available in every part of the country. People love these yummy dhoklas as a breakfast, snack or as a farsan (savoury accompaniment) in the lunch or dinner menu.
We made it in a jiffy using besan, but it can also be made by soaking and grinding chana dal. These versatile dhoklas can be steamed in a traditional dhokla steamer
or in a microwave
These dhoklas can be used to make variants like Amiri Khaman
, Rasawala Dhokla
and Pav Bhaji Dhokla
Everything about this starter is peppy – from the potato fingers to the sauce. Unlike many recipes, which derive the flavour mainly from the sauce and seasonings, here the potatoes perked up with garlic and chilli powder, even before deep-frying, to make sure that the flavour seeps in right to the core. The crisp potato fingers are then tossed with more garlic, spices, sauces and of course, honey, to make mouth-watering Honey Chilli Potatoes. This sweet and spicy treat can be served as a starter or as an accompaniment for noodles or fried rice.
Mumbai’s favourite street food merges with Oriental culture, in this exciting version of Bhel. Rather than being made with puffed rice, this unique Chinese Bhel is made with fried noodles, tossed with colourful sautéed veggies and garnished with crunchy spring onions. A generous dose of sauces is also added to bind the Bhel together in a tangy way! Prepare this snack just before serving, as the fried noodles tends to get soggy over time.
A chatpata sandwich that is perfect for the desi palate! The best part about this sandwich is that is captures the best of both worlds – tongue-tickling spices and gooey cheese too. This sandwich holds potato slices and cheese spiced up with chaat masala and green chutney.
The aroma that wafts out of the sandwich griller when this Potato Cheese Grilled Sandwich cooks just makes you drool, and the resulting amalgam of spices, potatoes and cheese housed within the crisp grilled sandwich is just mind-blowing!
A Vegetable Grill Sandwich this is, but far more exciting than the subtle continental versions! Yes, Mumbai’s roadside vendors take pride in offering the most tongue-tickling treats of all, and this Vegetable Grill Sandwich is no different. Made with a large assortment of vegetables, oodles of butter, a lavish splash of chutneys and a peppy sandwich masala, this snack is a real indulgence.
Dosa is as popular in South Indian
cuisine as Idli
is! Crisp and thin pancakes made of a rice and urad dal batter, dosas are even more exciting than idlis. In fact, while idlis are considered to be an easy, comfortable steamed food, dosas are often considered a more indulgent alternative! While dosas were traditionally made using iron griddles, nowadays non-stick tavas have made the job much easier. You can roast your dosas using oil, ghee or sometimes butter too! Enjoy them hot and crisp, with chutney and sambhar. If you are going to have the dosas after a while, make them slightly thick, so that they will remain soft and springy even after a while.
Crispy wafers made out of yellow bananas are an all-time favourite all over the country, especially in regions of Kerala and Tamil Nadu where yellow bananas are available all year round. You need to choose hard and raw yellow bananas to make these wafers.

Follow the procedure of adding salt, and other steps, exactly as mentioned in this recipe in order to get perfect Yellow Banana Chips. The outcome will be so fabulous that your Raw Banana Wafers will earn you many compliments!
