Indori poha recipe – Easy indian breakfast recipes

Poha has been a regular thing at my place since my childhood. Its made once or twice every week for our breakfast or sometimes even a snack. Its made so often that I never ever thought of posting it in my blog. My mother used to serve poha often garnished with some sev or grated coconut on the top.

Subz Badami recipe- side dish for naan,rotis and rice

I had had something called subz badami in a restaurant in India which looked and tasted very different from the recipe I am posting today. It was a spicy and a rich curry we had with naans. I wont say it wasn’t delicious. But I took the basic idea and made this vegetable gravy which went very well with hot and steaming basmati rice.I basically wanted to avoid cream in the gravy which actually makes it so delicious.

Badam Burfi recipe- Badam kathli- How to make almond fudge- Easy diwali sweet recipes

We are a family of sweet lovers. Though we dont have it too often, also because its not so readilly available around except in the Indian stores.And also a bit scary thinking of the enormous amounts of ghee (fats) and sugar we would be consuming.

When I visit all the blogs especially nowdays ,its loaded with sweets and I do feel like making everything I see and…
