kozhukattai recipes - Kolukattai Recipes - Modak recipes - Modagam Recipes - List of Kolukattai recipes

Kolukattai is a traditional dish made during Ganesh chaturthi / vinayagar chaturthi. During my school days my mum does it only during Ganesha chaturthi. These days you get it almost every day. I like both savory and sweet ones esp the ones sweetened with jaggery. The shop at Bay area near my Chennai office, has different types of Kolukattai. Bengal gram stuffing (it is a more traditional one) is my most favourite. I normally do it with iddiyappam flour but now days you get kolukattai flour too. You can try either one.

Vegan Vegetable Thai Yellow curry recipe - Thai recipes - Gravy Recipes - Curry Recipes

I love Thai Recipes. Recently my first son also started liking Thai recipes. Normally my sis buys vegetarian red curry paste from US for me. However I wanted to try this Yellow curry from scratch. I searched thro' net. I have tried based on what I had and my preference. Our family is not a big fan of raw coriander seeds so I had used powder. If you don't have Red bird eye fresh chillies use dry red chillies. If you are using dried one soak it hot water for 30 mins before using it. I had this with rice as well as with Chapathi. Both went well. I have used homemade coconut milk. You can use canned coconut milk too

My mum does Ennai katharikai sambar differently. I wanted to post her version since it is still not on the blog. My kids are not big fans of Eggplant so I seldom buy brinjal. But after seeing this version in Raks space, I was so tempted. This version sounded very traditional and uses all freshly grinded spices. I always like the aroma and taste of any dish which is made from fresh grounded masala. I had this with brown rice. Next day my helper had it with steamed white rice / Rice upma. She said the taste was good too. This requires more oil. I have followed the recipe from Raks place but adjusted the qty based on my preference

Mango Sorbet recipe - Easy Sorbet Recipe - Summer Recipes

This year somehow we got mango from India for the entire mango season. We really enjoyed this mango season with tons of Mangoes. Since the rest of my family is strict about having mangoes just by itself, rather than trying to do some dishes with it. So when I want to try any dish with it, I have to drag myself to do it. However there are few exceptions like Mango milkshake, Mango Lassi. Others mostly I ended up doing it. Other day when I was out for shopping I tried this mango Sorbet. So flavourful and refreshing. So I decided to try even if it meant I had to finish it by myself. No regrets! A tasty and refreshing summer treat with king of the fruit!
