Ingredient: coconut milk

Tofu in peanut and coconut gravy

This time decided to use peanuts and a bit of coconut milk for a different flavour. It definitely tasted delicious and went really well with the phulkas I had made for dinner. You can adjust the proportion of peanuts and coconut milk to suit your taste.

 

Tofu and mixed vegetable curry with chickpeas – Side dish for rice or quinoa

Rice is quite tempting for us. But as we have been avoiding it as much as possible for quite sometime now and have been using wholegrains in our cooking. I have mentioned this before and highly proteineceous quinoa is one of them. So I make tomato quinoa or lemon quinoa or some salad with it. The other day, I saw this recipe of a vegan side dish served with quinoa in one of the blogs, I quickly bookmarked it and made it very soon. I changed the ingredients to my convinience and taste. I loved the combination of tofu and…

 

Black channa curry recipe – No onion Garlic recipes

I have made this several times and have also loved it.I even made in a big bulk for a friend for a party. I once served with vegetable rice when I had some friends home. It was liked by all. My friend asked me to post this recipe and I am doing it after a long time.This is quite similar to the kadalai curry with puttu , I had posted years ago. But not entirely same, so its more richer and tastier. It goes well with rice, mixed rice,dosas ,chapatis and even pooris. I have made both with and without…

Pumpkin curry with coconut milk recipe | Side dish for chapatis or rice

Many people I met hate pumpkin as its quite sweet to taste.But I love this vegetable because no matter how spicy you make it, it tastes really good according to me. You can be quite generous with the green chillies you add because it gives an appropriate spiciness to the pumpkin. I had seen this recipe in a Sanjeev kapoor cooker show many years back. I had noted down the recipe and its very similar to the south Indianolan sans the lentils. I wouldn’t say this is the best dish with pumpkin but it tasted good. I served with some…

 

How to make Banana payasam – payasam recipes

It feels so good to be back to blogging after almost a week. I had taken a break with the intention of relaxing and spending quality time with my family. But things do not always turn up as expected. It was not a good time for us last week. I know it could have been worse and I am so much thankful to God that things are back to normal again. When I began checking my mails this weekend, It was a sweet and a pleasant surprise for me to see Usha’s(of veg inspirations) mail stating that I was the…

 

Vegetable Kurma- Version 2

A few days back, I had posted a mixed vegetable recipe and had mentioned that I try to make it slightly different each time. So todays post is a second version of how I make it. This one has a lovely flavour because of the freshly ground spice. Kurma is a south Indian speciality with coconut milk and spices. Its basically served with parota in the South. But it goes very well with cumin/jeera rice and chapatis/pooris too. My mom used to serve with toasted bread which was a good alternative too and made a yummy breakfast. She used to…

Coconut jelly/pudding

My sister and I made this for a dessert one day. We bought a packet of orange flavoured china grass. We were looking for a recipe, and then I had a packet of coconut milk sitting in my pantry for sometime. So we thought of adding that. And it was a good idea. The taste was really good. We loved the coconut flavour in the vibrant orange coloured dessert.
