February 23, 2019 Lunch Menu Series  No comments

This lunch menu is a Biryani Meal along with a gravy. Made this on a weekend. On the plate is Veg Biryani, Ennai Kathirikkai, Onion Raita(my hubby’s style) & Potato chips (store bought). We love to switch to this menu in between the boring kuzhambu, rasam & poriyal meals. Usually biryani would be paired with just the onion raita. This time paired it with Ennai Kathirikkai, my all time favourite combo.

Kara Sev is an Indian snack made with besan/chickpea flour. It is a crunchy,easy to make snack. Perfect for special occasions like Diwali or even as a tea time snack. Usually it is made by pressing the dough on a perforated ladle directly into hot oil. I have used a murukku press for convenience. Do check my plain Sev/Om Podi recipe too. Savoury snacks are always a favourite at home. It just vanishes very soon. So do not have to wait for a special occasion to make it. Recipe with video.

Paneer Jalfrezi is a simple and delicious sabzi variety to go with roti, naan or paratha. It is a semi-dry dish, more like a stir fry with full of flavours.

Kunukku Recipe – Adai Mavu Kunukku

October 1, 2018 Snacks / Starters  No comments

Kunukku is a simple deep fried snack made with rice and lentils. This is made from left over adai batter. If u have some left over adai batter this can be made in no time. So next time when u grind adai batter, plan to keep a small amount of it separately for this humble evening or after school snack. U might have to add a little bit of water to make adai, so it is better to keep aside some of the batter if u want to make this snack. I have used this Adai BatterΒ as the base. Kunukku can also be made with urad dal batter. Shall post that recipe soon πŸ™‚

Aglio E Olio – Italian Pasta Aglio E Olio

August 16, 2018 Pasta / Pizza Recipes  No comments

Aglio E Olio is a traditional Italian recipe made with either spaghetti or pasta. I recently tasted this in a Italian restaurant. It was an open kitchen kind of restaurant and the chef made the food right in front of us. So I was curious to know the recipe when we ordered this. Trust me this is such a simple recipe with full of flavours from garlic and olive oil. We just loved it for its flavours. Compared to my Cheesy Pasta recipe, this is a guilt-free recipe as not much cheese is added here. The chef just drizzled some parmesan cheese on top, but I have skipped that as well.
