Karuveppilai Thuvaiyal – Karuveppilai Thogayal

July 27, 2020 Chutney Recipes  No comments

Karuveppilai Thuvaiyal is a healthy & easy recipe to go with rice or even idli/dosa. I prefer consuming curry leaves in the form of this thogayal or thokku rather than adding it in dishes just for fragrance and discarding it while eating πŸ™‚ And I must mention, curry leaves are expensive here, so no wasting! Karuveppilai or curry leaves is known for its health benefits. Its rich in iron. Thuvaiyal is meant to be thick rather than a normal chutney. Try this Karuveppilai Thokku recipe if interested.

Sodhi Recipe – Tirunelveli Sodhi Recipe

July 18, 2020 Kuzhambu Varieties  No comments

Sodhi is a very rich coconut milk based recipe which is native to our place (Tirunelveli). This is a must in our marriages. It is usully made on the next day of the wedding known as Maru Veedu. Our weddings are like a 3 day festival and the highlight is this Sodhi Sapadu. This is served with Inji Thuvaiyal (recipe coming next), potato fry & potato chips. Totally divine. A tip for eating this which many are not aware – It is meant to be eaten like Rasam Rice and not like Sambar Rice. Meaning you must pour more sodhi generously than the amount of rice. Eating this on a banana leaf is a trick yet heavenly. Goes well with dosa as well.

Paneer Lababdar – Paneer Recipes

July 14, 2020 Paneer Dishes  No comments

Paneer Lababdar is a creamy, delicious paneer recipe which is quite different from the usual Paneer Butter Masala. I came to know about this recipe from a friend. We all really loved it. It is easy to make. No complicated steps, just a few tweaks here and there from the usual paneer gravy and this results in an unique taste. The addition of scrambled paneer does the magic. Goes well with roti, naan & pulao varieties. Do check out the video..

Brownies are always a favourite at home. Eggless Brownies is such an easy, no fail recipe that any novice can make it perfectly. As u all know or rather I have repeatedly said ” Baking is like working in a chemistry lab for me” So when I can make it, you all can make it too. I felt as happy as when I baked the No Alcohol Christmas Cake. I have been making this batch after batch since I made it the 1st time. Chotu just loves it. πŸ™‚ It is perfect with a scoop of Vanilla Ice Cream or even with a simple glass of plain milk. Do check out the video..
