Spring Onion Sabji – Hari Pyaaz Sabzi

June 25, 2018 Dry Sabji  No comments

Spring Onion is a veggie which many of u might use just to garnish in salads or soups. This Spring Onion Sabji is a simple yet yummy side dish to go with chapathi or even rice. This is Chotu’s favourite. Chopping spring onion might take some time but it is not a difficult task. It will reduce in amount once it gets cooked so u might have to watch out the amount of spring onion u need for your family. Trust me, this sabji is so unique and flavourful.

Stuffed Brinjal Fry – Stuffed Brinjal Curry

March 28, 2017 Dry SabjiKootu / Poriyal Varieties  2 comments

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. Ennai Kathirkkai is my favourite too.

Beetroot Fry is a simple yet yummy stir fry which I make quite often. I am always in the look of some sabji to pair with roti and dal, which is our usual lunch menu during week days. This Beetroot Fry has a simple twist which makes it suitable for both roti as well as rice. Though am not a big fan of beetroot, Chotu and hubby love it. U can either grate the beetroot or chop it finely like I have done. I personally dont prefer the grating part, Lazy me!!

I always try to make some variations in making potato fry. This Garlic Potato Fry is yet another simple and lip-smacking, spicy fry. I actually wanted to make this with baby potatoes, but unfortunately the baby potatoes that I got where oversized. So had to make it as normal one. This goes well with rice or roti. With simple ingredients that are usually available in the pantry, this Garlic Potato Fry can be made in a jiffy.

Chayote, known as chow chow in tamil is usually made as a kootu in any South Indian household. I make this Chow Chow Fry quite often than kootu. This fry goes well with roti and rice. So whenever I make this, Chotu has it with rice and we have it as a roti wrap for lunch. Two in one purpose solved right?!? This veggie takes very less time to cook and is a super easy recipe.
