Veg Kurma – Mixed Vegetable Kurma

June 4, 2017 Dals/Gravies  13 comments

Veg Kurma / Mixed Vegetable Kurma is a perfect side dish for chapathi/poori. This combo is most popularly served in restaurants. Its a good blend of vegetables in a coconut based gravy. This appears in my kitchen quite rarely as most of the time I end up making Paneer Butter Masala, Methi Matar Malai etc.. I usually make this Veg Kurma when I have left over vegetables, in the sense very little of each veggie that is not enough to make a side dish of its own.. 🙂 Post updated with video on 04/06/17

Lauki Chana Dal – Bottle Gourd Chana Dal

November 30, 2016 Dals/Gravies  2 comments

Lauki Chana Dal is nothing but bottle gourd (sorakkai) cooked along with chana dal in a onion-tomato based gravy. Its a very simple and healthy gravy. Bottle gourd has a lot of health benefits, especially for lactating mothers. This gravy is quite a different way to use bottle gourd, rather than making the usual kootu. As u know I am always in the look for side dishes to go with roti/phulka, this is a perfect and complete meal altogether with roti.

Chow Chow Fry – Chayote Fry

February 9, 2016 Dry Sabji  5 comments

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.

Do try my Chow Chow Chutney too!!

I had posted this Baingan Bartha long back. Just wanted to update with new pics as I was not satisfied with the old ones. So here it is – As a new post!! 🙂

Brinjal is not liked by all, but it is one among chotu’s favorites.Hubby who hates brinjal, likes to eat it in this form.. It goes very well with rice or chapathi.

Whenever I make this sabji, we dont need a kuzhambu as this serves as a 2 in 1 recipe. I usually make it in quite a large batch and store it as a thooku for a week in the refrigerator!!

Raw Banana Kofta Curry – Kachhe Kele ki Kofta Curry

May 17, 2014 Dals/Gravies  11 comments

Raw Banana in a kofta?? Yes it tastes equally good as other kofta’s like potato, paneer etc. Raw Banana Kofta Curry is a sumptuous gravy recipe for roti, naan or pulav varieties. Usually recipes with raw banana are quite limited. I normally end up making the most common poriyal or stir fry. This is the best recipe with Raw Banana. U can serve these koftas as a snack by itself or dunk it in a rich creamy gravy and serve as a side dish.
