Greens Sarvapindi !!

Sarvapindi also known as Akki roti in some areas, is a Telangana dish ( a state of India ) a famous snack or brunch dish.. It is traditionally made in two varieties either using Green chilli paste or red chilli powder... They taste great either ways but might differ in appearance... The authentic way of making this involved the copper bowl n coal stove..but these days those are hard to find..and moreover they were teeth breaking n jaw hurting hard to eat..but after so many trials n errors initially , i finally could make one that are soft n chewable... These can be stored for couple of days depending on the weather.. These are filling and very satisfying so preferred during travel n long journeys as well !!

Dharwad Pedha !!

Dharwad pedha is a sweet delicacy unique to the taste of Karnataka , India. It derives its name from the city of Dharwad in Karnataka.This has an history of around 175 years . 
     This peda is traditionally made using Milk,mawa and sugar.The ingredients might sound simple,where as the process is time consuming and labour intensive as the mawa,milk and sugar are cooked for hours together by stirring continuously until all the moisture evaporates and turns into caramel like color and dry in texture.Then its cooled to room temperature later kneaded until soft using all the muscle power and later shaped into pedha's !! Pheww !!
So i came up with this quick microwave version that is not only easy to make but also yields exactly similar texture and flavor to that of the traditional one !

Apple Pie !!
