This indo chinese cuisine is an all time favourite at my home. This can be just had as a snack/starter or as a side dish with rotis, though I never tried making it at home. I actually wanted to make manchurian with baby corn, but somehow never found time for that. So today when I wanted to try something different with cauliflower, I thought of making this. Here’s the recipe for this.
I first tasted this sweet during my cousin’s wedding and since then I have seen this in most of the tamil wedding parties. I had little pumpkin left after using it for a subji. So thought of trying this.It was so easy to make, took very less time and tasted really good. My hubby simply loved it. And now about the award. I am so thrilled to receive the “nice matters award” from Swati raman garg of Chatkhor. It says “Nice Matters Award is for those bloggers who are nice people; good blog friends and those who inspire good feelings…
It is ages I made something with mangoes. When Arundati announced the Mango madness event, I was tempted to do something. But somehow I was never fond of the kind of mangoes available here and never bought them. So it was almost two years I did not have them. But during my trip to India last month, mangoes were specially ordered for us as the mango season was just beginning and we were taken care of as if we were celebrities:)). Having mangoes after two years, was so divine ,as if I was tasting nectar. Anyway I found indian alphonso…
Last tuesday was our wedding anniversary. So I decided to bake a cake. I really don’t get enough time for making cakes often, though I want to(mainly to improve my baking skills:o)),and hence I am in lookout for such occasions. And the microwave cake took just a few minutes. I took the recipe for the cake from here. I just made minor changes Cake really tasted good. It was quite spongy and moist too. Keep checking in between, when the cake is getting microwaved. Overdoing may cause the cake to get hard.
Serve hot with any chutney. My hubby prefers mint chutney. You can also use mixture of rice flour and maida in case you don’t have batter. Use the same method.
One good thing about food blogging is it makes me hunt for more recipes and try out those food which I never thought of making. Now for the RCI Rajasthan event, after googling and debating on what to make out of so many dishes, I settled on making Rajasthani dal and missi roti. So here is how I made them. Missi roti- Serve hot. Shahi ghatte is a good combination with missi roti. Rajasthani panchmel dal – (side dish for chapatis /rice)
I have never tried making dhoklas, though I wanted to make it from a very long time. When the microwave event was announced this month, the theme being steamed foods, I decided to try this dhoklas which I found in Tarla Dalal’s microwave cooking. The addition of green peas made it nutritious.It was easy to make requiring very less preparation time. Though it did not come out very fluffy, it was soft and tasted delicious and had authentic flavour. This goes to Srivalli’s MEC- Steamed dishes.
After a hectic trip to India, it is being bit difficult to get back to the usual routine. So microwave is a life saver for me at present. This simple breakfast dish adapted from Tarla Dalal’s microwave cooking seems to be a variation of favourite Gujarathi delicacy usually made with rice flour.Sesame oil is used traditionally,but any other refined oil can be used. I am sending this recipe to easycrafts for WBB microwave foods.
Buttermilk is the best drink to beat the scorching heat of the hot summers. And cucumber eaten raw or in juiced form quenches thirst and always keeps your body hydrated,as it is rightly said”as cool as cucumber”. Combining this makes a ideal drink for the summer. One can refrigerate this and can have the chilled drink number of times a day. It has a lot of health benefits also. I am sending this as my entry for fun ‘n’ sun event hosted by easycrafts.
I have been seeing lots of very impressive dosa varieties being posted in many blogs. After googling for some dosa recipes , I decided to combine flour,oats and carrots to make a instant mixed dosa.It tasted good and was quite filling, at the same time very healthy too. I am sending this to Srivalli’s dosa mela and also to WBB#20- balanced breakfast hosted by Mansi.
