Sorakkai Chutney, Bottle Gourd ( Lauki ) Chutney


          Today's post is going to be another healthy and delicious chutney with bottle gourd, Sorakkai Chutney, Bottle Gourd or Lauki Chutney. The first time I tasted it, I was even surprised to know that there was bottle gourd in the chutney, but now when I think about it, we make chutneys with almost all vegetables and greens. Though, basically this chutney is made to go with idlis and dosas, you can still have it with rotis or even have it with some plain rice..

Suran Sabzi, Senai Kizhangu Curry, Yam Curry


          Whenever I bought Senai Kizhangu/ suran/ yam, the first dish that I made with it was always the senai kizhangu fry, and the next one would be the masiyal and sometimes I have made a gravy/ kuzhambu with it to go with rice. I have never tried making a curry with it to go with rotis, this is the first time that I tried this sabzi with suran. It's a curd/yogurt based gravy which gives the thickness and creaminess to it and it goes very well with both rotis and rice..

Soy Chunks Pulao, Meal Maker Pulao


          We like soy chunks at home, it's a good source of protein in a vegetarian diet, usually I add it to kurmas, briyani and I have also made parathas with it too. Recently I made this pulao with soy chunks, it's a simple and flavorful dish and very nutritious. Serve it along with a vegetable raitha or kurma for a complete and delicious meal..

Eggless Quinoa Muffins


          It's been a long time time since I had baked some muffins or cakes, in fact I have not been doing much baking because of the hot weather also, but now the temperatures have come done, so might be I'll be baking more. Coming to today's post, I have wanted to use quinoa in baking for a long time, but the first time, I had used uncooked quinoa in baking and the results were not good. After that, for some reason, didn't do it again until now, this time I used cooked quinoa in these Quinoa Muffins and they turned out good and I was very satisfied with them. I have used whole wheat flour/ atta along with the cooked quinoa, and they are not too sweet, so they are perfect for breakfast or snack. I have also added some grated carrots, golden raisins and walnuts and they tasted very good with a nutty texture from the quinoa..
