1. Dry Green Peas Vada
Oggarane Dabbi, although off-air now, was a brilliant show for anyone who loves cooking. Host Murali, who has a huge fan following, would invite a guest; either a homemaker or someone who has a passion for cooking, to show us some of their favourite recipes. Not only did they cook the dish live, but Murali would then sit down with them and try out each and every dish. A perk was the small goodies the guests got after their dish was appreciated. While we can certainly hope that the show must make another season, today we will look at some yummy and quick snacks. Let me tell you why. It’s because the monsoons are here!! Sitting by your window, watching the rain and having some bisi-bisi snack is all one can think of when you think of the monsoon right?
