My kid has few favourite veggies,in that baby corn is one. So weekly once this will be in the menu for him . He loves baby corn sabzi with steamed basmati rice and simple yellow dal for his lunch. So here is the recipe for baby corn sabzi.
Fry for a minute and transfer to the serving bowl. Serve as accompaniment for rice or roti .

I am trying this paneer jalfrezi recipe for first time and loved its simple procedure yet a yummy dish,I love it wrapped as Kathi roll,perfect idea for kid’s lunch box/snack box. Being paneer my kid’s favourite, this recipe has crunchy carrots,capsicum and beans too in it.So make its whole some when wrapped inside roti !! I love it because its tangy !!Yumm…
- Changes I made to the original recipe are,I omitted methi seeds and kalonji seeds(onion seeds) in the tadka part. Also I added roasted methi seeds powder instead towards the end.
- Original recipe asked for amchur powder,I had no stock so added lemon juice.
- So if you can get the above items,you can try that too.
Transfer to the serving bowl..
I like to wrap it in thin rolled roties and enjoy!

I don’t like ginger at all, except Mango ginger/Maa inji. I tasted them only once and was amazed by its taste. No smell of ginger at all,not even 1%. It was tasting like mango,only that its crunchiness,texture was like ginger! I never got a chance to make this maa inji uruguai before. Last weekend got this pack of mango ginger in Mustafa and without second thought bought it. My hubby asked to make pickle out of it,so called my mom to get the recipe. It was very very simple.

My MIL made this once for me and I was surprised when I knew it was soya bean. Then every time when I go to Chennai,my MIL has a pack of this dry soya bean to pass it to me. I make this curry just like her or make it as a simple sundal with no onion or garlic. Love it either way and eat as such … I make this when I run out of veggies and the job gets easily done in the early morning,if you soak overnight, morning just have to pressure cook in a separate vessel when we keep rice and no cutting veggie part,we can easily make an accompaniment for rice. Club this with any rasam so its a perfect, comfort lunch box idea!!
Serve as accompaniment for rice or enjoy as such!!

Ram Navami / Rama Navami for this year 2011 falls on 12th April,Tuesday. With Rama Navami coming up, thought of posting the traditional recipe of the drink “Panakam” here in my blog.This is how my mom/grandma used to make and I used to enjoy this a lot in my childhood days. Perfect thirst quencher for this summer too,smells and tastes D-I-V-I-N-E-L-Y !! I always love jaggery and pachai karpooram(edible camphor) combo in sweet pongal and also in this.. My paati adds Thulasi(Holy Basil) though, since I dint had I omitted in this recipe. In my child hood, the temple near our home gives pankam and neer more for free. Some volunteers will provide this on the day of ram navami, radha kalyanam or even when Thai poosam when the people pull ‘ther’(தேர்) around the streets near by…
Serve chilled though tastes great as such!!
- Adjust jaggery and lemon juice to suit your taste buds!

I have tried an eggless banana bread recipe before once,but always wanted to bake a banana muffin and vanilla muffin for a long time now. One fine day,got inspired after seeing this recipe,as it has no butter and used oil instead. So I had everything needed in hand,so just halved the quantity and tried immediately. Actually I dint expected the result to be so awesomely soft and spongy like this, I loved it to the core! I loved the walnuts very very much in the muffins…
Enjoy the full soft and spongy banana muffins with the walnuts,the best part in it !!

I always wanted to try this mixed vegetable paratha,and when I saw my sis in law’s post - How to make square parathas, I was way too tempted. So I tried to make square parathas with stuffing to suit my kids taste,with spices and his favourite veggies. He loved it a lot and here after he wants ‘only’ square parathas!
