Dal Paratha recipe – easy indian breads

 

I had no hopes of making something for the SWC- Gujarat event, due to a very busy schedule this month, But at the end I managed it. I was browsing the net for some Gujarati recipes and found this Daal parathas extremely tempting. So tried making them and they tasted absolutely delicious. These parathas goes to Priyanka of Asankhana who is hosting SWC-Gujarat this month. This event was started by LG Of Taste of mysore for Singapore women’s club. I am also sending this tasty parathas to Srivalli who is hosting roti mela. I had something else in mind for…

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.

Tangy mango delight – mango recipes

 

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…

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.

Green peas dhokla – microwave version-Tarla dalal recipe

 

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.
