Jini Dosa

When I posted the Farali Dosa few days ago, I spoke about the option of a French fries dosa. Surprisingly many of my blogging friends expressed an interest in it. I am yet to come to terms with that travesty but I thought it would be a good idea to include at least one dosa…

Gavhache Dhirde

We are at the end of the first week of this Mega Marathon and today’s alphabet is ‘G’. I had quite a few choices for this alphabet but I wanted to cover as many states of India as possible and so I picked this Maharashtrian dish. There was also Ghavan from Maharashtra but I thought…

Honey glazed carrots

For my third and final dish in the ‘One vegetable three ways’ theme, I chose to do the ever simple and ever popular dish -honey glazed carrots. Usually baby carrots are used for this recipe but since those aren’t available in my part of the world, I picked the bigger carrots and sliced them to…

Oven roasted carrot soup

If you want to make anything delicious, I suggest you roast it in the oven. Tomatoes, yes…onions, yes….carrots, yes….sweet potato, yes….garlic ,yes. I think I have made my case.

Cheese & Oats Paniyaram

Sprouted Mung Soup

Here we are. Today is the first day of our mega marathon for protein rich dishes. Like I said yesterday, I want to showcase as many protein sources for vegetarians as possible. There will be 2-3 recipes with eggs but no more. So, the plan is to have lentil based dishes for the two days…

Carrot Soup

Carrot soup has been on my list since the beginning of this mega marathon but I kept postponing it. I would buy carrots with the intention to make the soup but I would end up using it for upma or pulao and postpone it yet again. If nothing else, my daughter would eat up the carrots…

Chunky Vegetable Soup

I am writing this post from inside a box. The house is full of them and there are stuff all around. The daughter finds it highly amusing and is jumping in and out of the boxes and falling into piles of clothes. I have 50 boxes and I am just half way through and most…

Quick butter carrots

Its nice to be back on the blog after what feels like forever. Its been one month during which I made the mega move from Malaysia to India. So this is my first post from my temporary accommodation in Bangalore. I was not sure I could participate in this month’s BM since I would not…
