I love to try smoothie for my breakfast. It is very fast to make and perfect for on the go food. I saw this smoothie in one US shop. I was bit hesitant to try but it kept lingering in my mind. Since I was at home the other day I was thinking why not try this .. Worst case I can find some alternate option .. This drink is so delicious and loved itPin It Now!
During my last trip to US I wanted to get some healthy noodles. Was talking to my sis about it. She was recommending this Edamame Spaghetti. She is particular about healthy food for her family. When I checked the ingredients I was surprised as normally there will be a very long list of ingredients this one had only a couple of it. So my sister wanted me to try it. I was very skeptical about the taste so I took a long time to try. Once I tried with green pesto / Green sauce it was so yummy.. I have to order few boxes during my next trip or have to find out whether we get it in Singapore. If you don't get it you can use this sauce with any of your favourite pastaPin It Now!

Masala Dosa is one of the most famous South Indian Dish esp for breakfast. I had this in my list for quite some time however I seldom do masala dosa as our family is not big fan of potato. During our last week holiday trip during our visit to restaurant to my surprise my son asked for masala dosa. So I was think why not do it at home also. So when we returned first thing I did is to try masala dosa at home. If you have left over masala you can do a sandwich with it. So here you go with the postPin It Now!
When I brought mushroom I had baked open stuffed mushroom in my mind. But My microwave got spoiled so I was wondering what else I can do. My helper was taking about deep fried stuffed mushroom. She vaguely remembered the recipe. I took the recipe from her and modified to our taste. My kids enjoyed every bite of it. I had more vegetable and less cheese. But you can vary the amount according to your taste.Pin It Now!
My kids love biriyani or fried rice.. So most of the time Sunday is time for some fried rice.. it also works fine for me as these one pot meals are little easy (well one of my friend says typical south Indian lunch which sambar, rasam, 1 kootu, 1 poriyal and yogurt is easier. I guess it goes with each and everyone's preference). This rice is quite rich and doesn't require any side dish other than simple raita. This is good for a party / can be part of your guest menuPin It Now!
Pesto Korma recipe - Mixed vegetable korma - Mixed vegetable kurma - Side dish for Roti, Idli, Dosa or fried rice
Pesto is one of my kids most favourite. Other day after doing Peas Pesto Pasta and I had left over pesto. Couple of days later I was planning to do roti. While thinking about what side dish to make, Pesto korma crossed my mind. Instead of using water to dilute the paste I thought of using coconut milk to enhance the flavour. While doing the dish I was crossing my fingers. Finally when my kids were having dinner they were completely surprised to hae "Pasta taste" in the korma. I told them it is made up of Pesto not pasta . They loved it!Pin It Now!

As mentioned in my Chocolate mocha breakfast shake post, these days I do take coffee once or twice a week. When I was having tooth pain my doctor advised not to take any hot beverages. When I first came to SG and in my first job, my boss brought me to Spinelli. When I was browsing thro' the menu I saw this cold coffee and out of my curiousity I ordered it. I preferred hot one to cold one. After that I tasted this cold coffee a couple of times only. After that I tried it only recently and I kind of liked it. May be I am more open to different food as food blogger .. Whatever be it I am enjoying more options of foodPin It Now!
After Beet pesto pasta I started to make pesto pasta with vegetables that my kids don't like. Peas one of the vegetable which my 2nd son has a huge hatred for. (He takes few pieces of Peas Kachori. No other peas base dish) I wanted to try this peas pesto. I added more Garlic and Onion while making this pesto. It turned out to be excellent. It is very simple too. I added finely chopped Carrot / beans also as my kids eat only dinner at home during school days. You can add / skip based on your preference.Pin It Now!
