Rajma Masala is a favourite. I always end up making it, So wanted to try a Pulao with rajma. Here u go with Rajma Pulao. Its a power-packed one pot meal. The only planning u need to do is to soak rajma overnight. Otherwise it can be made in a jiffy. I was wondering if rajma would get cooked along with rice and Yes! It got cooked perfectly right ๐Ÿ™‚ If u are in doubt, check my video below. Enjoy this simple yet flavourful easy lunch box recipe.

Idli/Dosa Milagai Podi

January 8, 2018 CondimentsPodi/PowdersSide Dish for Idli/Dosa  2 comments

Idli/Dosa Milagai Podi or Chutney Powder is an item that is always available in my pantry. It is a must for idli/dosa even if I have any number of other side dishes like Tiffin Sambar or Coconut Chutney. I make sure that a fresh batch of this podi is refilled just before the old batch gets over. It goes well when combined with gingely oil or ghee. I had posted this recipe long time back. Now have updated with new pics and video as well. Do check my collection of side dishes for idli/dosa HERE.

Aloo Poori – Potato Poori

December 23, 2017 Breakfast/DinnerKids Bay  2 comments

Aloo Poori is a delicious poori flavoured with potato and spices. The golden colour of this poori is really very attractive for kids. It is a good method to get the hidden benefits of the veggie for those totally fussy kids. Poori is always my favourite since childhood. Poori & tomato thokku is my most wanted combo. This would be my standard demand on my birthday’s! ๐Ÿ™‚ I served this Aloo Poori too with the same thakkali thokku, though this can be had without a side dish as it is fully flavoured.

Tawa Paneer Masala – Paneer Recipes

December 5, 2017 Dals/GraviesPaneer Dishes  No comments

Paneer is always a favourite at home. This Tawa Paneer Masala is full of flavours. Its a super-yummy, semi-dry curry that goes well with roti & pulao varieties. Ideally as the name suggests it is made in a tawa. Since I do not have one ideal to make this, I made it in my usual pan. Its the quickest paneer recipe unlike the usual Paneer Butter Masala or Shahi Paneer. Not much planning is needed here as it just calls for the usual ingredients available in the pantry. A good dose of capsicum adds a magical flavour.

November 28, 2017 Soups  One comment

Winter days are already here & its freeeeezing now-a-days. All I want is something hot to drink. Soups are always welcome at home. This Butternut Squash caught my eye during last week’s shopping. Hence the result – Butternut Squash Soup ๐Ÿ™‚ I should say it is deliciously creamy & sweet. It has a mild nutty flavour which I loved the most. I bought a small tin of cream too, but did not find the need to use it in the soup as it was super thick & creamy. So try this warm, hearty & filling soup. Its a perfect soup to pack it in a flask for lunch too!
