Vegetable Fruits Salad Recipe | Easy Salad Recipes

Fruit and Vegetable Salad

Vegetable Fruit Salad is one of the salads that I make very often at home say at least once a week. When I have vegetables and fruits in surplus, I just cut them into pieces and toss them in a tablespoon of honey or just with pepper and serve. This one is super easy and requires no-cooking at all. Since it is a very easy salad, needless to say it is Gj’s favorite salad.

Prawn Varuval | How to Cook Prawns Fry | Prawn Fry Recipe

Prawn Fry

Prawn Fry is one of my favorite when it comes to non-vegetarian recipes. I still remember when I go to my Nadu-perippa’s house almost every Sunday, my perimma used to make Prawn Fry for lunch. She makes it so well that the taste still lingers in my mouth. Though this is not my perimma’s recipe, this recipe is very similar to hers. Very tasty and delicious. Hope you all like it!

Vazhaipoo Poriyal | Banana Flower Stir Fry Recipe

Vazhaipoo Poriyal

I always wanted to post this recipe for a long time. When I was in Delaware, I used to get Vazhaipoo very often there. I buy it once in two weeks and would make Vazhaipoo Adai  and Vazhaipoo Soup. Though I make this recipe often, for some reason I was postponing to post this recipe. In my subconscious mind, I would think…okay, I will buy Vazhaipoo next time and make this recipe and post it next week. It never happened. Now, the scenario has changed.

Chicken 65 Recipe|Restaurant Style Chicken 65|South Indian Chicken Fry

Chicken 65 Recipe

Chicken 65 is my family’s favorite recipe. Before my wedding, when we have guests at home, my dad would request my mom to make Chicken 65 as starter for the guest. My mom would have a big serving plate specifically for Chicken 65. She would either make Chicken Lollipop or Chicken 65 most often. After my wedding, I do not get to eat Chicken 65 often because Gj is not so fond of deep fried food. He was brought up like that. You won’t believe in the past 10 years, I have made Chicken 65 two versions just thrice. Though both of love it so much, we do not make it at home just because it is deep fried. Chicken 65 is so delicious, juicy, and has good flavors. When you eat it, you will get a burst of flavors.

Cream of Mushroom Soup |Vegetarian Cream of Mushroom Soup

Cream of Mushroom Soup

I make a variety of soups during winter season. I do not get time to click pictures and post it here. When Gj returns from work, I would serve him soup and breadsticks. Not on all days, but thrice a week. It is very difficult for me to take pictures in the evening because in my current kitchen, the light would be right above my stove. If I use flash, then all my pictures would be too bright. It is definitely a challenge for me.

For some reason, I always think making ginger garlic paste is kind of tough. Only for the past 4 to 5 years, I have started making ginger garlic paste at home. I make it almost everyday (i.e) I would never make it in batches and store them. I prefer fresh ginger garlic paste always. Even when I make coffee, I grind the coffee beans freshly.  Now I have two babies and life has changed a lot.
