Baby Corn Pulao

April 29, 2015 Rice Varieties  11 comments

I always love to make one pot meals. The reason behind it is, cooking gets over very quickly, and the best part is I dont have to wash too many vessels.. This Baby Corn Pulao is one such easy and quick rice variety that can be made in a jiffy. This is a flavourful pulao with crunchy baby corns and a magical aroma of freshly ground mint leaves. Goes well with a simple raita. If u serve with any gravy, it would rather be a feast!!

April 27, 2015 Breakfast/DinnerRoti/Paratha  13 comments

Poori is an Indian bread that is deep fried in oil. Masala Poori is a slight variation to it. This is made by adding few spice powders to whole wheat flour and then deep fried. It goes well with any gravy, sabji or just with any pickle too. It is ideal for breakfast/dinner. Usually when I make this Masala Poori we have it as is or with any pickle. This time I served it with Aloo Mattar Gravy.

There is no tomato or tamarind in this rasam. Lemon is the hero of this recipe!! It gives a very refreshing flavour along the freshly ground rasam powder..
