October 30, 2019 Biryani/PulaoLunch Box MenuMixed VegRice Varieties  No comments

Tawa Pulao or Pav Bhaji Pulao is a popular street style Pulao of Mumbai. Street vendors use a big sized tawa. I simply love the way they make Pav Bhaji. Wanted to try this Tawa Pulao since a long time but wanted to try a small amount as to fit my size of Tawa. Made it on a day when I cooked lunch only for me πŸ™‚ Made this just to post it here, otherwise would have ended up eating noodles or Pasta. Came out very well. Apparently just gave a taster to my boys and made it again the next day on popular demand. πŸ™‚ Check the video..

May 3, 2019 Biryani/PulaoLunch Box MenuMixed VegRice Varieties  No comments

Quinoa Biryani, Yes it is!! Quinoa has become a recent favourite. Have started to use it quite often in our diet due to its health benefits.

Veg Quesadilla or Quesadilla – Until last month (during our India trip) I had no clue on what this Quesadilla was. All I knew was “Kaise kaise bhi ho, acha hai ye paratha” hahahahaha. Do u recognise this dialogue? This is what Sridevi said about it in the movie English Vinglish. Even then I was least bothered to know about it & was just glued to her expression in the movie. Now back to the recipe, my BIL (brother in law) made this for us and it was just yumm!! Especially Chotu, his tummy got expanded to fill in some extras! Β Infact even mine πŸ™‚

Bisi Bele Bath

June 21, 2017 Mixed VegRice Varieties  2 comments

Bisi Bele Bath is a speciality of Karnataka. It is quite similar to our Sambar Sadham except for some changes in the masala! I so so love both the versions! Its such a breeze to make. U can have it with a simple papad as it is loaded with veggies and does not need any side dish as such. I prefer to make this on a weekend as we love to have it hot! And also the consistency is best when served hot & fresh.

Veg Kurma – Mixed Vegetable Kurma

June 4, 2017 Dals/GraviesMixed Veg  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..Β 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.. πŸ™‚ Post updated with video on 04/06/17
