Quinoa Paniyayarm

Ingredients
Wild quinoa/Quinoa -1cup
Brown rice-1cup
Methi seeds-1teaspoon
Urad dal-1/4cup
Salt

Method
Wash and soak the rice-quinoa and methi seeds for 4 to 5 hours.
Wash and soak urad dal for 11/2 hour.[Can soak it separately or with quinoa itself, I soaked with quinoa]
Grind everything to a fine batter, add enough salt and let it ferment for at least 8 hours.
Check the consistency of the batter, add water if necessary while preparing paniyarams.

Heat a paniyaram pan on medium heat with little oil in each of the hole. Pour a small ladle of batter in each hole and let it cook.
Turn the paniyaram once its cooked on one side and cook on the other side. Remove them from the pan and serve hot with your choice of chutney.
We had it "Madurai chutney", perfect combo for paniyaram.
Note
I have used wild quinoa in this recipe so the color is little brown. If we use plain quinoa the color will be slightly different. Here is the picture of the paniyarm with normal quinoa.

Ridge gourd Stir-fry / Peerkangai Poriyal

Ingredients
Ridge gourd - 1 (chopped 1 cup)
Chopped onion-2tablespoons
Green chilly-1 or 2
Grated coconut-2teaspoons
Mustard seeds-1/2teaspoon
Channa dal & Urad dal-1/2teaspoon each
Oil
Salt

Method
Trim the edges and skin of the ridge gourd and cut it into desired shape pieces. [I like veggies to be on the bigger size so chopped them into small cubes]
Heat oil in the pan, add the mustard seeds and let them pop-up.
Add the channa and urad dal, let them turn golden in color.
Add the onion, green chilly, sauté for a minute and add the chopped veggie.
Sprinkle little water and cook for 4-5 minutes on medium heat. [Remember, just sprinkle water and don't add salt at this stage. Ridge gourd releases water and shrink in the size]
Once the veggie is done, add the salt and grated coconut. Give a good mix and put off the stove after a minute.
Mildly sweet and delicious stir fry is ready to serve.
Its a simple South Indian, in fact, kongu nadu special poriyal which can be a perfect side dish for rice-sambar-rasam etc. We had it with Pachaipayaru kadaisal and rasam.
