Saamai ( Little Millet ) And Vegetable Upma


           This is my 500th post, it took me more than 3 years to do this, with my laziness, I can't believe that I have done so many posts. Actually I should have celebrated it with something sweet, but I noticed it only now, Well then, coming to today's post, Millet Upma, I have started including millets in our diet at least 2 or 3 times in a week, mostly I use it in the place of rice, in idlis, dosas, pongal and pilafs. I made this upma, some time back, I have used saamai/little millet and I have made it slightly different from the regular upma. The upma was very flavorful and colorful from the different vegetables and was very filling too. We can serve it either with coconut chutney or even with yoghurt/curd..

Eggless Banana Walnut Bread


          I have tried making banana bread couple of times, in the past, they have all come out good, but this one, that I made two weeks back, is the best ever. The bread was moist and the texture perfect, but the best part is, I made it with whole wheat flour ( I used regular atta, used for making rotis ). I followed the recipe from here and I have replaced the eggs with chia seeds and yogurt/curd. The bread was an absolute hit at home, no more looking for another banana bread recipe, this is it..

Narthangai ( Citron ) Pachadi


          Narthangai/Citron Pachadi, this is my mother-in-law's recipe, the first time I tasted it, I simply loved it, and I wanted to try it out myself. Couple of months back, I got half a dozen of these citrons and I couldn't wait to make this pachadi. The recipe is very simple, but peeling and taking the inner part of the narthangai is the time consuming part. I peeled and made everything ready the previous night and made the pachadi the next morning. This pachadi can be had, mixed with some white rice or as a side with some curd rice, do try this, the next time you get narthangai..

Lasooni Palak, Garlicky Spinach


          Lasooni Palak/Garlicky Spinach, as the name suggests has loads of garlic in it and we all know that spinach and garlic go together very well. I have made a puree with the spinach and then cooked it with garlic and other spices and then again finally garnished with some more garlic. It goes very well with rotis, naans or even with mild pilafs, if you like spinach and garlic, then you'll love this delicious curry..
