Aloo Poori – Potato Poori

December 23, 2017 Breakfast/DinnerKids Bay  2 comments

Aloo Poori is a delicious poori flavoured with potato and spices. The golden colour of this poori is really very attractive for kids. It is a good method to get the hidden benefits of the veggie for those totally fussy kids. Poori is always my favourite since childhood. Poori & tomato thokku is my most wanted combo. This would be my standard demand on my birthday’s! 🙂 I served this Aloo Poori too with the same thakkali thokku, though this can be had without a side dish as it is fully flavoured.

Tawa Paneer Masala – Paneer Recipes

December 5, 2017 Dals/GraviesPaneer Dishes  No comments

Paneer is always a favourite at home. This Tawa Paneer Masala is full of flavours. Its a super-yummy, semi-dry curry that goes well with roti & pulao varieties. Ideally as the name suggests it is made in a tawa. Since I do not have one ideal to make this, I made it in my usual pan. Its the quickest paneer recipe unlike the usual Paneer Butter Masala or Shahi Paneer. Not much planning is needed here as it just calls for the usual ingredients available in the pantry. A good dose of capsicum adds a magical flavour.

Butternut Squash Soup – Soup Recipes

November 28, 2017 Soups  One comment

Winter days are already here & its freeeeezing now-a-days. All I want is something hot to drink. Soups are always welcome at home. This Butternut Squash caught my eye during last week’s shopping. Hence the result – Butternut Squash Soup 🙂 I should say it is deliciously creamy & sweet. It has a mild nutty flavour which I loved the most. I bought a small tin of cream too, but did not find the need to use it in the soup as it was super thick & creamy. So try this warm, hearty & filling soup. Its a perfect soup to pack it in a flask for lunch too!

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!
