Saturday mornings are special for us. It’s the only time we get to be together, without having to rush for work/school. Though it is my day off, ‘getting up late or sleeping in’ luxury is not for me. The son ensures that. He loves to sleep in on weekdays, when we have to rush for school/work but on a Saturday he is up and shining at 6. Last Saturday was also the same and he insisted to go on a morning walk! He is mighty impressed by some superhero on TV and believes this is the only way to build up muscles!
I had planned Dosas for our post walk brunch but was not in the mood for elaborate chutney or Sambar to go with it. Wanted something quick and simple. I saw this recipe for Almond powder a few days ago at Talimpu. I had a pack of almonds which was threatening to get rancid and waiting to be used up! The recipe itself looked quick and simple and used all the day –to-day ingredients.
We enjoyed the delicate, nutty flavour of the lightly spiced powder on the hot dosa; a good variation from the usual Chutney powder. Thanks Raji for this lovely idea
I tweaked the original recipe to suit our taste. I did not use the recommended oil at all and added a pinch of jaggery powder while grinding.
Here’s the recipe:
