BOMBAY TOASTIE - FOR THE SATURDAY AND SUNDAY SLURP

Looking for some easy finger food ideas for Chai and Gupshup? Then, this is the right  party snack. The Bombay Toastie is one such desired quickie sold as a push cart street food by the Sandwichwalas of  Bombay (re-christened Mumbai though I prefer saying Bombay). 

BISI BELE HULI ANNA @ BISI BELE BAATH

Bisi (Hot) Bele (Lentils) Bath (Rice) needs no introduction to many.  This classic South Indian recipe is home to Karnataka 
(Udupi cuisine to be specific), India and the name this recipe takes is in the Kannada language. With a medley of vegetables, ghee and aromatic spices, it is hard not to taste this. At times, this recipe does not need any fried accompaniment (which is common). Depending on the spice level, this can be a nutritious meal for children as well as a favoured delight for all. In the Tamilian context, this is nearly a Sambar rice. Though the basic recipe is more a standard, umpteen versions in improvements and in preferred tastes exist. This one is from my MIL who spent her early years of her marriage in Bangalore.
