I make omelette very often at home. Mushroom is one of my favorite veggie, and I try to incorporate it in my food as much as possible. When I was thinking about an eggless version of an omelette, I came across Chef. Revathi Shanmugam ‘s Mushroom Omelette. I tried it three days back, and liked it so much. It resembles like an adai, but tastes good. Vegetarians, you are going to love this recipe. You can serve it with sambar, rasam and even Curd Rice .
Last week, I promised that I would post some chaat recipes and I am so happy that I fulfilled it. My cold has gone away, but still have cough. Hope you all are liking my chaat recipes. Aloo Chana Chaat is even more simple and easy to make. You can add or minus any ingredients you want. Every thursday, I do pooja so will always have chickpeas at home. I thought I should make some chaat with chick peas and finally I am here with the recipe. Except for soaking and cooking the chick peas, everything else is very easy. This is one of my favorite chaat recipes. It needs only basic ingredients of Chaat:Meetha Chutney/Dates Tamarind Chutney,Green Chutney, and Chaat Masala Powder. Rest of the ingredients we will always have at home. Now let’s go to the recipe.
Gj loves salad kind of recipes. If I make chaat recipes, he would request me if I could make healthy chaat recipes. Only then it popped into my mind, “why not try something healthy like sprouts”. I made this yesterday for evening and Gj loved it. Only if Gj likes my recipes, only then I will post it in my blog. It is a very healthy recipe and has lots of proteins and vitamin C,. You should all try it.
I love chaat recipes especially the ones that has curd in it. When you eat this Dahi Papdi Chaat, you would get a burst of flavors because of crispy papdis, sweet Fresh Curd, soft potatoes and tangy chutneys (Green Chutney,Meetha Chutney/Dates Tamarind Chutney) etc. It tastes yumm! I made this on Sunday evening during India Pakistan match. Just loved it. Make sure you add the sweet curd instead of the regular Fresh Curd When you have sev, chaat chutneys (Green Chutney,Meetha Chutney/Dates Tamarind Chutney) and papdis at home, you can make this Dahi Papdi Chaat in no time. Try this tasty chaat and fall in love with it.
Three years ago, my friend called me and said that she is going to try Golgappa recipe for the fifth time. When I asked her why fifth time? She grumbled to me that all the four times Golgappa did not come out well. Next day, I went to visit her and she looked very tired. I asked her what happened. With a sad and disappointed face, she complianed that fifth time also it did not come out well. Her puris were white and did not puff at all. She also showed me the puris. She then went to the Indian store and bought the puris.
Usually I make chaat chutneys, Meetha Chutney/Dates Tamarind Chutney and Green Chutney, in batches once in 4 months and would freeze it. I will use whenever I need it.This is a very simple recipe to make. There are many versions of Green Chutney and this one is far simple and easy than the other ones.The shelf life is also not bad. It stays good for 3 to 4 days, if refrigerated. I will post the other versions soon. Lemon juice preserves the green color of the chutney, however adding it is optional. I am planning to post some chaat recipes in the coming weeks. Lets see. If I plan something, it never happens. Sanvi got cold from school and gave it to me, so right now I have sore throat and running nose. So definitely no mood to eat chaats. At this moment, I would want to have some tasty and soup that soothes my throat. Ok, now off to the recipe…
Garlic Chutney is one of my favorite chutneys. When I am super lazy, I make this Poondu (Garlic) Chutney. I learned this recipe from my friend who makes it very often at home. This chutney goes well with rice, idli and dosa. The more thicker the chutney is, the more tasty it will be. This Garlic Chutney is ideal for traveling because it keeps well for 2 days even at room temperature. You can pack this chutney and have it along with dosa, idli and even Chappathi . Try this out and you will like it.
Seppakizhangu Varuval is one of the dishes that I make when I am super lazy and also when I have less veggies at home. It goes well with any dishes. I learned this recipe from my paternal athai. She makes it very often when I go to her house. Just love it. My mom also makes this very often. You can make the same dish with potatoes, yam, bittergourd etc. I have already posted Plantain Fry and Crispy Bitter Gourd Fries. Many of my readers liked both the recipes so much and now here comes another one…Hope you all like this too.\
A super easy and moist cake made with basic ingredients and grated carrot. Kids will adore this cake for its taste and would not mind the grated carrots in it. This cake has become one of my favorites, so whenever I crave for a cake, I make this quick 1 minute carrot cake. It satisfies both my craving and hunger.
My friend Vanessa called me on Sunday night and said “Nithya, guess what? I made cake without adding any flour. ” I was surprised and then asked myself, “Can we bake a cake without any flour? How does the cake form and taste like?” Vanessa told me that the cake was simply delicious and brought some for me the next day. When I tasted it, the cake was super moist, soft, and had an extra kick of chocolate flavor in it. When I say flourless and very few ingredients, did you guess what goes in it? Eggs, butter and chocolate…I hear you!
Lemon Mug Cake is very simple and easy recipe. All you need are some basic ingredients and three minutes time. I drizzled some Lemon Glaze on this Lemon Mug Cake and it was super yummy. It only takes 2 minutes to make Lemon Glaze. Have the Lemon Mug Cake with Lemon Glaze and you will like it. The mug cake will turn out to be light and fluffy. Should I say it tasted absolutely delicious??? If you top Lemon Curd on Lemon Mug Cake, it tasted awesome. I have tried both and I loved both. I will post lemon curd topping soon. Besides a heavenly aroma, every bite of this moist cake will have a burst of zesty lemon flavor. Now lets move on to the recipe…
