I love Chennai very much as I born and brought up in Chennai being a North Indian … I spent my childhood at north Chennai were I did my schooling before marriage .. After marriage i introduced to a lovely place Saidapet which is a neighbourhood in Chennai . I reside in saidapet from past 17 years.. In the beginning i reside at Jones road which is the main road to connect from Mount road… I love Jones road as its a cool and calm place !!!!
Now i shifted and reside at kodambakam road near Manthope school in west Saidapet connecting by the Jones road subway which started recently easy to connect Mount Road within few minutes…
Karneeswarar Temple is a Hindu temple located in the neighborhood of Saidapet in Chennai. Its a famous temple and it has a big pond connecting Jones road… It is said that people who take a ritual bath in this tank on full moon days get cured of many of their illnesses. .This temple is located next to the Saidapet Railway station. I use to go on every thursday with my friends to distribute home food to the beggars sitting outside the temple as i am a member of food bank chennai (we provide food to homeless people)
We can get trains to reach beach station to Tambaram, Chengalpattu & Kanchipuram from Saidapet railway station…We also go to saidapet railway station on thursday evening as we can find many blind people sitting inside the railway station .. We ask them if any help they need and try to fulfil their small help by giving biscuits, bread, food as well peanut burfie (for selling) helping in their business too….
If you or your kids get bored we can go to Amma park situated near Manthope school is really amazing park ..Kids have lot of play area they will sure enjoy playing outing , breathing fresh air as its fill of green palnts allround .. . There are many excercising eqipments inside the Amma park,we can go for a daily walk and be fit & fine .
Shopping, how can i forget this i really love shopping in Kodambakam road & Jones road.. There lot of retail shops were we can get A – Z things we need .. We have reliance shop and MORE to get all our household items…
From Jayaraj Theater Bus Stop , we can get MTC buses easily to reach Parrys, Anna Salai, K.K. Nagar and T. Nagar . Its a bus depo. so we can get seats easy to go enjoy the journey…
ANNAI VELLAKANNI school and colleges are ther to help students recognise the academic ability and to accept responsibility for its development.

Once my friend came from Mumbai she loved rajasthani dishes very much so i wanted to give her pleasant dinner making khobaroti.. which is eaten with Moong daal…
An authentic Rajasthani thali is traditionally vegetarian. The Rajasthani Khoba is a famous and traditional dish it looks thick and crusty, and tastier than the regular chappati. The success of this recipe depends a lot on how you knead the atta, so do spend a considerable amount of time kneading with your knuckles…
So let see how can make khoba roti.
Wheat flour (atta) (1 cup)
Salt (¼ tsp)
Desi ghee (2 tbsp)
Water to make a thick dough
1. Take flour is a big bowl and then Add salt and 50 grms ghee in flour and mix well. Now add little water at a time and knead bit hard dough than required for making regular roti and cover it keep aside for 15 minutes to set.
2. After 15 min over just take the flour apply some oil in ur palm and knead the dough again until it is smooth
3. Make a round dough ball(each three-times the size of the balls used for normal rotis). Place the dough ball on rolling plate and roll like u roll for roti…
4. Heat a tawa on a medium flame and place the roti on it. Flip it once light brown patches begin to appear on the inside and take a knife and just pinch it 4-5 times as it wont comes out like roti..
5.Now turn the roti and make small peaks with help of your thumb and finger on the roasted side of your roti. Make peaks on the entire roti.
6.Roast until roti gets brown spots on the other side. Take the roti off the tawa and plop it directly onto a low flame until it gets brown spots on both sides.
7. Place the roti on a plate & apply desi ghee on it… Now ur khoba roti is ready serve hot
I served to my friend with moong daal as well we can eat khoba roti with jaggery and ghee like it is shown in the plate in the pic… She really enjoyed it very well ..
You all too try it and surprise your friends who love Rajasthani dishes.. A ny doubt am always there to guide u friends …..
