Rosemilk_0785

Rosemilk brings back a lot of childhood memories. We used to make Rosemilk with Roohafza syrup. Am not sure if that is still available in the market. Trust me, making Rose Syrup at home is not a big deal. Moreover it does not contain any preservatives, making it a much better option than the store bought ones. I made Rosemilk Popsicles earlier. U can make this Rosemilk and pour it in popsicle moulds and enjoy too. If u ask me, I would not be patient enough to let it freeze and would simply slurp it with a straw :)

CoconutRiceCurdRicePotatoBananaChips_0758

In the lunch menu series, this week its a very simple yet delicious South Indian Variety Rice menu. I made this during the weekdays to pack as a lunch. My favourite among variety rice is puliyodharai and curd rice is always a comfort food. I made a batch of raw banana chips as an evening snack, but most of it got over for lunch itself. So this added some crunchiness to the simple Variety Rice Menu. See below for other options of variety rice and side dishes.

Panagam_1126

Panagam or Panakam is a traditional drink made especially on Rama Navami. It is a Hindu festival celebrating the birth of Lord Rama. As Rama Navami falls on the 5th of April, thought of posting this traditional recipe. This is a child hood favourite. My grandma used to make this for her daily pooja as a prasad, especially during summer time. It is a perfect thirst quencher too. The addition of cardamom and ginger powder gives a divine taste to it.

Rosemilk is a childhood favourite flavour. I recently made Rosemilk with homemade rosemilk syrup. Recipe coming soon HERE. I wanted to make it as a popsicle but did not want to use the syrup.

I agree with you, the waiting time to let it freeze is really boring. But it’s worth the wait! So try it out. :)

StuffedBrinjalFry_0546

Brinjal is my all time favourite! I can eat brinjal in any form. This Stuffed Brinjal Fry is a simple and flavourful curry to go with rice or roti. The freshly ground masala does the magic here. Usually the stuffing will be made with peanuts and sesame seeds. Since am not a big fan of that combo, have changed the flavours according to our taste buds. If u are like me, try this combo. Have given the usual masala powder option in the tips.

PotatoPuttu_0742

Puttu is basically peeled and mashed vegetable that is tempered with spices, green chillies and onion. This Potato Puttu is a simple yet flavourful side dish for rice. This goes well with sambar, rasam & most of all with any spicy kuzhambu. Usually I make some kootu variety to pair with it, but this Potato Puttu is also a favourite at home. When we get bored with the usual potato fry with all the masalas, I make this much milder version.
