Tangy Chickpea salad

I think the least number of recipes are posted under the “salad”cateogory of my blog. I do make salads regularly though not everyday. My kids like to have chopped raw carrots almost everyday or I make raita/pachadi with different veggies. But eating vegetables in raw form almost everyday is not […]


Pineapple raitha recipe – Easy Side dishes for pulao and biryani

This is one fruit which really fascinates me. I used to love pineapple juices and milkshakes when we used to go out during my college days. Nowadays I buy them whenever I can. My kiddo loves to eat them as such. I add them in fruit salads and custards as I make them quite often nowdays. I have used them in my bakes , but not so often and am quite tempted to do so very soon. And also there is one starter recipe which is so simple to make which I had in a restaurant couple of years ago….

Peanut chaat /peanut salad recipe

I made this during the weekend when we all felt like eating something spicy. Infact we were watching a movie that time and I needed to make something really quick. I just had to pressure cook the peanuts as we do for the chundals and throw in some spice powders along with some chopped onions and tomatoes. Hardly a recipe, so I just clicked the pictures of the final product. It was just delicious. A fuss free recipe, where I could do the things during the break without missing the movie!!! Notes-


Broccoli with corn and peas- Salad

Just like soups , I had been ignoring salad from my diet for a very long time. To be more precise, salad was a rare occurence on our dinner table. But the healthy diet awareness which I have been hearing about in the blogosphere, magazines and television and my goal to lose weight has made me include them in my diet. I had definitely cut down the inclusion of too much fats in food, having more of low carb foods and more helping of pulses and vegetables. But the inclusion of raw food which contains the maximum amount of fibre…


Pumpkin Raitha recipe – pumpkin recipes

I have a few Indian friends in my neighbourhood. We meet each other every evening in a nearby park. We have a chat while our kids play in the park. So evenings are real fun here. In those chats , we discuss recipes too and get lot of tips from each other. We especially discuss recipes which are easy to make and requires less time(probably because everyone is frustrated about what to cook everyday!!!the same old story!!!). So this easy raitha with pumpkin came up during one of those chats. Indeed,its a really easy one. And it goes well with…

Yes we met again. This time with more foodies. We had a great time. It was nice to meet so many like minded people. We had the kitchen connect event organised by lakshmi.
