I love pickles!! Its a divine combo with curd rice. I am more than happy to have curd rice and pickle rather than an elaborate meal! This Garlic Pickle is an easy and lip-smacking pickle variety. Pickles are always the best when freshly made at home. My grandma was an expert in pickles, in fact in whatever she cooked. I have followed the same basic pickle powder that she used to make. This Garlic Pickle is yet another instant pickle that can made in just 15-20 mins.

Bread Besan Toast is an easy and yummy breakfast/snack that can be made in a jiffy. Unlike the Bread Bajji which is deep fried, this Bread Besan Toast is a low fat guilt free version. U just need to whisk a few ingredients, dip and coat the bread in it and toast it. How easy is that?!? If u do not eat eggs, this is the best alternative to a french toast.

Pakodas always have a high demand at home, am sure it is the same in every household. This Paneer Pakoda is an easy and tempting pakoda variety. I totally forgot to use a litre of milk and realised it only when it went overdue the expiry date. It curdled upon boiling which was what I expected!! So I added some curd and made it as paneer/cottage cheese. Make sure to check that the paneer is not sour. If it is please do not use it, if it tastes good continue to use it.
