Beetroot Rice

          What to pack for lunch tomorrow, this is always a big question for most of us, in my house it has to be either rotis or parathas with some curry or some mixed rice, that's the reason you can see a lot of curries and rice ( one pot meals ) in my blog. Today's dish is another simple rice using beets, I have used the simple basic South Indian seasoning of mustard seeds and urad dal and a coarse paste of coconut, chillies and ginger to give a nice flavor and taste to the rice. If you like beets, go ahead and make this delicious rice, it takes very less time and tastes great with some raitha or chips on the side..

Zucchini And Green Peas Curry

          Zucchini is another favorite vegetable at home, whenever I happen to see them fresh, I always pick them up. I usually add them to pasta or make a chutney, this time I had just one zucchini and I wanted to make a curry to go with rotis, since a curry with only one zucchini would be very less, I combined it with some green peas, green beans and potato along with a coconut and coriander paste. The curry turned out very delicious and tasted really good with the rotis, and I am sure that it would taste good with rice too..

Rice And Paneer Cutlets

          Today's post is once again for the ' Shhhhh Cooking Secretly ' event, I was supposed to cook and post it for last month, but then, since my kitchen was getting renovated, I couldn't do it till last week. I was paired with Shama of Easy2Cook Recipes and she had given me rice and paneer as the secret ingredients. I didn't think too much, the moment the ingredients were given, the first thing that came to my mind was these cutlets. I used leftover rice, paneer along with some capsicum and onion and spices and then shaped them into these cutlets. Since I wanted to keep it healthy, I shallow fried them, they turned out super delicious, it can be served with some green coriander chutney, but I served them with just some tomato sauce, perfect evening snack..

Stuffed Ridge Gourd (Peerkangai, Beerakaya,Turai)

          This month, for the ' Shhhhh Cooking Secretly Challenge ' event ( started by Priya ), I was paired up Sangee Vijay of Spicy Treats, and she had given me ridge gourd and cabbage as the two ingredients. I don't have to give an introduction for Sangee, she is well known in the blogger community and her blog has so many delicious recipes, and also, she is one of the first few people to comment and encourage me in my beginning days of blogging. Coming to the ingredients, I was slightly skeptical, both of them vegetables and I was not sure how I was going to combine them in a dish. Then the idea of stuffing the ridge gourd popped up, I have seen a lot of recipes, most of them used a peanut based stuffing, I thought I could use the cabbage as a stuffing. The dish turned out absolutely delicious, the cabbage stuffing tasted really good with the ridge gourd, we had it with rotis and dal but I am sure, it would go well with rice too..
