SWEET POTATO ROLLS
    I had a lone sweet potato after making some other recipe and was thinking what to make with it. Then saw this Sweet Potato Buns recipe in a cookbook I took from the library (The Best Veggie Burgers On The Planet – by Joni Marie Newman). I was more than happy to try it out. And I always wanted to experiment buns with longer kneading time, as my previous attempts has no much kneading time.

Vazhaipoo-vadai-recipe
  I rarely make vazhaipoo vadai, most of the times I make vazhaipoo poriyal. Usually, for making vazhaipoo vadai, the mixture is ground bit smoother than we do for the masala vada, but I do grind more coarse as I like that way. You can adjust this as per your preference. But its yummy both ways and that’s really what counts right?Smug

Aloo-bhendi-masala
     I got this recipe from my friend Sangeeta, she was so sweet to mail me a complete ‘North Indian Thali menu. The menu was so simple and I will soon post that. But first I thought of posting this recipe in my blog. I always wanted to try aloo and bhidi combo for long time. And she read my mind!

   I am making Uppu seedai and vella seedai for the first time for Gokulashtami. This has been always a nightmare as I am so afraid of bursting of seedai… Thank God it didn't this time. Before this,3 years back I had that experience. After that I had never thought of attempting. Now I thought its high time to attempt again, thanks to the blog world, seeing all the seedai recipes around, I too got confidence that I will get it right too.

kai-murukku-suthu-murukku

   My grandma is an expert in making these “Kai murukku”. She makes it so fast and its will look so elegant when she makes it with ease. My mom too makes kai murukku, but both their style differs a lot. I always loved watching them making it for Gokulashtami. I used to sit and hear all those stories and gossips they both used to talk. My paati also makes murukku in shapes of some small kolams specially for me. They will be so so cute.These home made kai murukkus are so different in flavour and taste than we buy from the shops. I love this home made murukkus for its flavour and unique taste.

       Aglio Olio, is a simple pasta recipe which is nothing but Angel hair pasta cooked in olive oil flavoured with garlic and spiced with the red chillies. Once when I ordered this from ‘Pasta Mania’, I loved the simplicity of the ingredients and loved the taste the best of all pasta dishes. It is a treat for those who doesn’t like the usual pasta tomato sauce.

Mysore-bonda
   I recently became a fan of this Mysore bonda AKA Ulundu bonda. I tasted this in my periyamma’s house. Actually I helped her in making this bonda,while she kept ready the batter ground. We made in large numbers and I totally loved making balls (that too bigger size bondas) and deep frying them in a big kadai…… and a big laddle……,fun!!. Its crisp out and soft inside,love the coconut bits the best in this one. Yesterday I ground batter for vadai for aadi perukku and decided to make bondas in the evening and post it here in my blog!
