Raw Food Feast / Iyarkai Unavu Virundhu

6 years back I had the chance to attend Isha yoga basic course. During the course one day full raw food meals were provided. I was very impressed by the fact that a full course of raw food could have so many varieties and so fulfilling. Even though we have salads and raw foods at home( from time to time, not consistent though šŸ˜¦ ) I had always wanted to recreate the full raw food feast. Finally got a chance to do that. When my students arranged for the college culturals, they had asked for staff participation too. There was one event that suited my interest.NO FIRE COOKING – ONLY RAW FOODS. I devised a plan in advance and along with my two team mates prepared 18 dishes in one hour. The result was better than expected and we won the first prize. For now i have added the recipe names and pictures. Will explain the recipes in detail after some time.We prepared the following dishes.

Low Calorie Potato Bonda

After seeing the announcement for tried&tested event ( originally started by Zlamushka ) at Priya’s easyntastyrecipes I visited DK’s blog chef in you. She has a variety of healthy recipes. She uses innovative techniques to make the recipes healthy and low calorie. One recipe that caught my eye was that of low calorie aloo bonda. Well…potato bonda and me go back a long time. It is one of my favorite snacks. I love the taste of yummy soft potatoes in crispy coating of gram flour. In this recipe DK uses the pancake-puff pan ( kuzhi paniyaram pan ) to make the bondas instead of deep frying them. Thanks to DK I can now indulge in my favourite snack with out the guilt of having deep-fried oil rich food. I have followed her recipe as such. You can find the recipe here.
