Beetroot Pulao – Rice Varieties

November 8, 2017 Bachelor Friendly RecipesLunch Box Menu  One comment

Beetroot is not my favourite. Hubby & Chotu love it though. I usually make this Beetroot Fry for chapathi/rice & love this Halwa!. This time I made this Beetroot Pulao as an one pot meal. It was perfect & quick for a lazy weekend. The lovely colour will attract kids and people who do not like beetroot like me will not make a big fuss! This Pulao and a simple raita would do to compile a hearty meal.

It is a goo...

Capsicum Sambar – Kudamilagai Sambar

November 1, 2017 Kuzhambu/Rasam Varieties  No comments

Sambar is an essential item in every South Indian household. Usually it is made with veggies like drumstick, brinjal.. This time I tried it with capsicum and to my surprise it added a magical flavour to it. It so happened that a friend of mine had come home & I had nothing in the fridge other than capsicum. So made this Capsicum Sambar & garlic potato fry. Just could not believe that I gained many junior fans for this sambar. Since then, I was wanting to make this post. Finally clicked & shot the video as well. So trust me it is a very flavourful one. Do try it!

Sweet Potato Tawa Fry

September 25, 2017 Kootu / Poriyal VarietiesPotato Recipes  One comment

Tawa frying veggies has been my long time wish. I have seen many people tawa frying yam. I made this Sweet Potato Tawa Fry last week and it was a super hit. I somehow feel like making some non-veg as it resembles fish fry. Sweet Potatoes were the best to tawa fry as they get cooked very quickly. They were sweet, spicy, crispy.. Yumm!! I guess this will be on repeat mode for a while. 🙂 All u need is to plan 30 mins for the marinating part, otherwise it can be made in just 15 mins.

Paal Kesari or Milk Kesari is a simple South Indian sweet. I made this for the 1st day of Navaratri (today). Perfect for this festive season and for sudden cravings/guests. It is very similar to the normal Rava Kesari. The addition of milk gives it a magical taste. It tasted more like a halwa! The needed ingredients are always available at home. All u need is 15-20 mins. Do check my Semiya Kesari & Aval Kesari recipes too.

Red Capsicum Soup – Roasted Capsicum Soup

September 19, 2017 Soups  One comment

Soups are recently in demand at home, since the weather has started changing. Its getting really cold. I feel, a hot bowl of a filling soup in the evenings is a better alternative to tea/coffee. Later a light supper/dinner would do, to finish the day. This Red Capsicum Soup had been in my to do list since a long time. I usually prefer the green and yellow peppers as I feel the red ones have a slight fruity flavour. But the red ones served best in making this soup. It was so flavourful. The colour is very attractive to tempt kids as well.
