vegetable-biryani-recipe      
   I always wanted to try this way of “ Layered vegetable Biryani” for long time now, in which the basmati rice flavour and the masalas and spices are blended to give a unique taste and flavour. I make this way usually which I already have posted. This is the 2nd or may be third time I am making this way of layering. But the first two times I tried a long time back. So recently remembered and wanted to try. I referred Vah chef’s video and this recipe. This can be made when you have guests at home or if you want to make a special meal Happy.

butter-paneer-masala-recipe     Other than eating Paneer butter masala at restaurant, the recipe was first introduced to me by my friend Sangeeta. Till then I had no clue about the creamy texture that we get in restaurants. So first of all thanks to her for the recipe. I make this often now a days for Aj. Vj is not big fan of paneer, if I have to make him eat, the paneer has to be cut into tiny cubes. Otherwise he says its bland. I also add pepper for extra spicinessHappy.

         Homemade-paneer-recipe
    This is the first time I am making paneer at home, other than I made it for making Rasgulla. That is this is the first time I am setting paneer and made to cubes. Here paneer is bit expensive and also cannot rely on a specific brand. The place where I shop always changes the brand they are selling, so get puzzled at the ingredients and the quality. I love amul paneer but its been ages since they kept it here for sale. After that tried few unknown brands and was not that satisfied.I then liked kohinoor paneer, but they stopped keeping that tooSigh. From that time onwards I used to think I should try making at home. But always wondered, 1 litre milk makes only this much paneer? But not bad you know, its enough to make once any paneer dish, that serves 2-3.

mango-milkshake-recipe    Mango milkshake is not my favourite, that’s coz I am not a big fan of mango. But not any more. This mango season, I have changed a bit! I love the Banganapalli mangoes we get here in Singapore. It’s so so sweet and yumm! Actually I feel a bit awkward every time to tell people that I am not a mango fan, that too being brought up in Salem, which is known for mangoes!! But seriously I have not seen that much mangoes in Salem. May be I am not aware those days… And all of a sudden, I am now liking mangoes. But always I used to love frooti, maaza and slice. even now, I can drink bottles!

potato-kurma-for-puri
    I make this kurma for puri or even some times for biryani / tomato rice / mild pulao. I wanted to post this recipe last week, but some how could not. Aj always prefers kurma for poori than the usual puri masala. This one is very similar to my mixed vegetable kurma. But all potato makes this one really yummy and flavourful!

thavala-vadai-recipe
This thavala vadai recipe is also one of the recipe my In-laws shared me, they saw this recipe in a cookery show by Mrs. Revathi Shanmugam. Before going to the recipe, I disclaim, this may not be a traditional recipe and it is no related to the “Thavala Adai” , this is “thavala VADAI recipe” Happy. Most of the recipes has only rice and mixture of dal, but this recipe has sago in it, which I liked the best in this vadai. One more thing that tasted out of world was the coconut bits that came here and there. On the whole I love love loved it and enjoyed eating it a lot. It dint drink much oil too. A great tea time snack. That too you can win elder’s heart if you make this for them as snack Big Grin.

guacamole-recipe
    Avocado is introduced to me by a friend of mine here in Singapore. She had made avocado milkshake. But I was bit hesitant to taste. But so many years after that, now again Anu (friend through blogger) asked me to try out the fruit. She just pushed me to try her avocado spinach pasta and told we can even make this dip. So I searched in Tastespotting for the recipe and referred few to make this. I opted for chunky version as I love it this way. You can make the same by grinding the avocado smoothly.
