My mum used to do this but she does it as a side dish for rice. But till now I didn't know the other name for it. One of my colleague used to bring for his chapathi. I love it as it is a little spicy and easy to pack as it is a semi dry gravy. Recently my husband wants to have cabbage in his diet more often.. So I wanted to try this for our chapati / roti. This goes well with rice too..Pin It Now!

Pinwheel with Puff pastry - Masala pinwheel with puff pastry - Puff pastry pinewheel recipe - Snack recipes - puff pastry recipes - appetizer recipes
My kids are big fans of puff pastry. I had one puff pastry sheet left to finish. I had this puff pastry pinwheel in one restaurant in India. So I have decided to try it out. I made the stuffing with potato and peas. You can have it with mixed vegetables. If you are adding mixed vegetables reduce potato by 1 and replace it with 1/2 cup of mixed vegetables. Make sure your vegetables are chopped finely. This can be served alone. This is a perfect after school / tea time snack. Also good party starter / appetizer.Pin It Now!

Any mix vegetables rice / briyani is my go-to recipe esp for a lazy weekend lunch esp Sunday. I have posted many vegetable briyani versions, Mughali veg rice and Mugalai Pulav with Fruits. I wanted to try Fruit and Veg together. Also I wanted to do mixed rice without much Indian masala so this rice has less masala. If you don't have all the spices it would be still fine just use whatever is available. This is a perfect way to feed your kids with both vegetables and fruits in one dishPin It Now!
My son wanted simple Vanilla cake for quite some time. I wanted to try something diff. So I decided to make almond vanilla cake. I had some left over Milk powder. I read in some magazine that milk powder gives nice texture to cake so I decided to use Milk Powder. I have used my own measurements (didn't follow any of my previous cakes) and was crossing my fingers. When I tasted the batter (yes I do that to check the consistency and sweetness) I got my confidence back. It came out pretty good. My kids enjoy it as evening snack also as morning breakfast cakePin It Now!
Vazhaipoo Kuzhambu Recipe - Valaipoo Puli Kulambu Recipe - Banana flower Kulambu recipe - Plantain Flower Recipes - Vazhaipoo Recipes
I love to try different puli kulambu recipes. It is a every other week esp for a weekend meal. After Pakora, I was left with handful of Valaipoo and was not sure what to do. It is good enough only for kulambu or sambar. I never heard about sambar before so wated to try kulambu. I thought that masala, tamarind paste would make great combination with Valaipoo. As expected, it came out pretty good. Even if you are not a big fan of Plantain Flower you should try. This is perfect for both steamed white or brown rice. So do try out this recipe with Plantain flower / Valaipoo / Bhale Hoova / Arati Poovu..Pin It Now!

I love mor kulambu in any form. Our family's most favourite Sunday special esp after all the one pot meals is mor kulambu. It goes well with most of the side dish too. It is also most simple meal option for me. I had this recently in my cousin's place. I am very happy that I got another variation to my favourite dish. I followed same method as paruppu urundai mor kulambu recipe with some modification to the gravy and replacing paruppu urndai with bonda As a slight variation you can grind the masala with 1/4 leaves. It would be nice too.Pin It Now!
Poori is one of the easiest recipe to try even for bachelors. It is also quick to do when you have visitors. This is also the most favourite dish for a lot of kids. The other day I wanted to make a quick dinner and had some left over chana masala. So I wanted to do some flavoured one so that I don't have to top up with any side dish. As this has all the masala and plain yogurt go well too. Everyone at home loved it. If you haven't tried so far do try it outPin It Now!
I love the Achari (Pickle) flavour. The combination of mustrad seeds and fenugreek seeds is really interesting. I have posted Achari Paneer, Achari Vegetable rice in my space. The other day when I wanted to make some baby potato side I was wondering why not try Achari flavoured one! For sure someone must have posted the recipe on the net. So When I searched I found quite a few posts. I have tried using my own combo which I have used for rice. If you don't have Yogurt you can add Vinegar. This can be served as starter tooPin It Now!
Salem Thattu Vadai Set recipe - Thattai Vadai sandwich recipe - Snack recipes - Kids friendly Recipes
My kids love any snack esp right after coming back from school. This recipe is something new for me. Normally I make Thattai chaat. I kind of this version of "chaat" as this allows me to sneak in vegetables.. Even though in the cookery show and the blogs I have seen beet, carrot, onion you can let your creativity run wild with this. You can add sprouts, boiled potato even avocado in this. I referred recipe from Raks Kitchen for this post. But I have tried with tomatoes, avocados too.. It tastes good alsoPin It Now!
