YELLOW WATERMELON JUICE

       I came to know about yellow watermelon only through my friend Sangeeta, then immediately bought the melon and tried… After long time now, I made this juice again and thought of posting… The yellow watermelon tastes similar to the usual one,just that it is yellow in colour!

Easy palak paratha recipe

Spinach-Paratha
I had some left over palak after I made palak poori for my kid and it was too little to make palak paneer or anything else. I wanted to try aloo palak gravy for long time, but palak was too less. So ended up in making palak paratha. Had it with tomato garlic chutney,the best combo I would say!

Notes :

  • When making pizza cups, you can skip cutting in to circles and just keep the bread as such in the muffin mould.

Both ways and tasty evening snack for your kid is ready!

Vegetable stew recipe | Appam side dish

we eat aapam with sweetened(with jaggery) coconut milk.  But when we had our dinner last month in ‘Mango tree’ restaurant here in SG, for aapam we ordered ‘Vegetable Ishtu’ from their menu. Till then I have not tasted any stew. It was so simple,plain,pure white,with veggies and only the ginger flavour that wafted from the stew. For me it was smelling like the potato masala we make for poori,but with the richness of coconut milk and onion, it was just tasting and smelling divinely!  So I tried at home,with recipe adapted from Divya’s blog slightly,also keeping in mind of what I had in the restaurant. I could not get the pure white they had,but tasted the same!

Puli idiyappam recipe | Variety idiyappam recipes

Puli Idiyappam

Puli idiyappam is my mom’s signature recipe. She makes for dinner along with other varieties like sweet and Paruppu Idiyappam recipe I have blogged already. Just make plain Idiyappam and mix with pulikachal. Ready! My mom makes jaggery syrup and pulikachal in advanced so that she can mix and make sweet and puli idiyappam in no time. Of course making idiyappam is a tedious process. But we all used to help her… I can eat this non stop. Love it! And sure who ever loves puliyogare, will love this too!!

Oats paniyaram recipe (With mixed lentils) | Indian oats recipes

Indian Oats Recipes-Khara paniyaram
This is not an out and out oats recipe,but added with lots of  lentils/protein. I tried this paniyaram last week and just loved it…This is somewhat like the khara paniyaram recipe I have in my archive, just that I replaced rice with oats and the taste was really awesome and the paniyarams were so so soft. I don’t make any oats recipes which tastes sweet as I cant even eat two mouths and love to  try different savoury recipes with oats. Have it for breakfast(soak lentils over night),or dinner or even as an evening snack,you will love it!

Kumbakonam kadappa recipe | Side dish for idli dosa

Kumbakonam Kadappa Recipe
I tasted kadappa first time in my hostel mess in Trichy. That time I used to hate that. Then once after marriage my MIL made I totally developed taste for it,may be the way she made it, changed my taste. Though she avoids fennel in her recipe,I tried adding fennel and bay leaves in addition to the way she makes and the result was really awesome! I just love the flavour and makes a great combo with idly. Hubby doesn't like fennel at all,so I avoid it most of the times, still will add whenever I get a chance…
