Tasty Healthy Home Food with Gomathy Mami’s Batters
Millets is the new age food and we can confirm it with the number of restaurants offering millet based food aka healthy food. Healthy food is not something we want to eat once in a while and to make it regular, it must be prepared at home. This was one area which we were not familiar with as we belong to the city bred crowd. So we ended up hunting for such food and brought home ready to cook powders with which we can prepare dosai or adai. The problem with the powder is the dryness we get when preparing dosa or adai. It is manageable if we eat it immediately and how much ever we soak the powder, there is that hard feel in the end product. This is when we came across Gomathy Mami’s home batter and had the opportunity to try out 6 different batters –
Brown Rice Dosai , Multi grain Adai , Bajra (Kambu) Dosai, Horse gram (Kollu) Dosai, Ragi (Kezhviragu) Dosai, Regular Rice based Dosa / Idly and Paruppu Adai from them. I must say I am more than happy with the product in the pricing, quality and taste. Here is our experience –
The batters come in 500 ml packs and the regular dosa /idli is an exception with 1 kg packing. We were a bit apprehensive about the 500 ml packs if it could satisfy a family of 3 adult members.
Except the regular dosa/idli batter, everything else comes with minimum water and salt. This was a bonus because we can add water according to what we want to prepare – More water if it is dosa, little lesser for adai and still lesser for Idli. We added half teaspoon of salt and about 100 ml for dosai, 75 ml for adai and 50 ml for Idli. This is approximate and we would advise discretion while adding water.
Surprisingly each and every batter has unique combination of spices making it interesting. Our 500 ml packs gave us about 6 adai and 8 dosai. We could get crispy adai with less oil and we could prepare it in a regular iron tawa, no compulsion to use a non-stick one. We did try preparing it plain and also with onions and the end product was amazing, fresh and very tasty.
My family does not have preference for millet based food and it is a challenge to make them accept it. It is no flattery – Gomathy Mami Batter won them all. The batters have a shelf life of 5 days and so we found it convenient to use it for breakfast every day with our choice of chutneys.
Another advantage is the pricing of the batter. Here is the pricing as of December 2016 –
