Red chilly pickle recipe

Garlic ,tamarind and jaggery is added to suppress the pungent fiery taste of the red chillies. But it is still very spicy. I love to have it with my curd rice , chapatis or dosas sometimes.

This is a very easy recipe and its my go to recipe whenever I don’t have much time for cooking. This does not really require any side dish as such though you can serve a side dish of your choice if you like it that way. Papads or chips should be a good choice to serve with too!

Banana stem stir fry – side dish for chapatis

My sister had once suggested to try a stir fry with it using onions and all. So when I got the stem last month, I decided to make it this way. It was spicy and delicious and it really tasted great with phulkas. We all enjoyed it and am sure I will making this again and again.

 
purple carrot juice

Purple carrot juice- Gajar ki kanji

This is a spicy fermented non alcoholic drink made with purple carrots. The taste is absolutely different from any other drink you have had to date. It has a pungent odour and tastes sour. My family did not like it much though my hubby had a few glasses after it was chilled.

 
pumpkin

Pumpkin fibre thuvayal /pumpkin fibre chutney

Today morning, I was cutting a whole pumpkin for making olan. I had seperated the fibrous portion along with the seeds at the center and planning to discard it as we usually do. But my grandmom who is visiting us suggested that we could make chutney with it. This really impressed me and I immediately thought of doing a blog post.
