I made this rich and creamy jackfruit seeds korma. It went well with chapathi. Richness came from cashew and melon seeds. I wanted make it as white korma but addition of tomatoes changed the color. So if you prefer to have full white skip tomaotes. Jack fruit seeds alone gave nice taste. But you can do it with Mixed vegetables too. If you are adding vegetables reduce jackfruit seeds quantity. This is definitely must to try during this jackfruit season.Pin It Now!

Carrot halwa is one of my husband favourite. So wanted to try other fruit or vegetable base halwa. I wanted to try this papaya halwa for quite sometime however not very sure about he flavour of it as papaya has it's unique flavour and some people quite put off by it.

Since It is fruit base you cannot keep it for long try to finish it within couple of day. You can serve with Vanilla ice cream or loads of nutsPin It Now!
I love Raw Mango. Even though you get raw mango almost all year along these days the ones you get it during season (summer) is really amazing.. Esp I love the variety we get from my grand ma little garden. I was told that tree is there for past 60 over years (yes ... the fruit is tasted thro' 5 generations) My grandma used to make a sweet mango sambar which I like esp the mango after a day. I can finish 1 to 2 mangoes at one go. This is one of sweet dish I like from my childhood. I have posted Raw mango sambar in my space before. This recipe is almost same except addition of Jaggery. Another similar recipe is raw mango Pachadi but it is done without dalPin It Now!
Are you bored with regular upma (rava or rice)? I saw this mixed millet rava in the shop. When I opened it I thought the rava was a bit small so I was not sure whether it was for Kanji or upma. I had decided to give it a try for upma. I have followed the same recipe as rava upma. I have added vegetables to make it a one pot meal. If I make certain millet (Pearl and ragi in upma form) alone my hubby would complain. But this one no problem at all. I love the nutty taste in it. I had this for breakfast and it kept me full till lunch.Do try it out if you can get this mixed millet rava.Pin It Now!
I normally buy jack fruit at least once a week. I dry the seeds and collect it. Since we had some guest for the last couple of weeks, I ended up buying more Jackfruits. So I had quite a bit of seeds. I wanted to do the kara poriyal with that. I wanted to do something I have tasted a long time ago at my friends house back in India. I had some left over coconut thogaiyal in the fridge. So Instead of making fresh coconut paste I had used it. The poriyal tasted good (exactly same as what I had in my mind). Well yet another new dish!Pin It Now!

Dal dhokli, varan phal, or chakolya is a Gujarati / Maharashtrian dish. I tasted this during my college days since my sister's close friend is from Gujarat. So we got to enjoy their dishes. This is perfect for breakfast / brunch or as an after school snack. It is quite filling. It is a fairly simple dish except for the part of adding Dhoklis at right time / right temperature. Normally their dishes would have a tinge of sweetness but I didn't add Jaggery also I have added garam masala instead of whole spices. You can use 2 bay leaves, cloves 2, Cinnamon 1 inch. Since my kids prefer not to have whole spices in their mouth I have used garam masala. It is also a no garlic, onion and ginger recipePin It Now!
I have bookmarked from Nalini's space for a long time. I forgot about it. When I watched this in Venkatesh bhat show decided to try it out. Since my kids love poori and they have moved avay from Maida Poori. they are more open to try different flavours and with Wheat. I love the urad dhal flavour in Kachoris. It give nice aroma to the food. It was the reason for me to book mark it. I add Roasted Urad dhal flour when making puri for chaats. My kids love it. So I am pretty sure kids would love this combo too except for the ajwan flavour in it. It is quite rare in my home to use Ajwan in cooking. When I tried it everyone loved the combo! Gravy is also without onion, Garlic and tomatoesPin It Now!
Milk peda recipe - Paal peda recipe - Dhoodh peda recipe - Simple Diwali Sweet recipe - Milk Sweet recipe
I recently started ordering my vegetables from an online portal. This Rainbow carrot is their speciality. I wanted to try this roasted carrot (esp baby ones which are very attractive) after I saw it in foodgawker. After a couple of time finally I made it. It is really very tasty. I have added a teaspoon of garlic butter which I think made a big difference. If you are very health conscious you can skip it but I recommend strongly. The mixed carrots I got had mostly orange and yellow carrot. When I roasted that in microwave the whole house smelled lke the garlic flavour. Addition of butter enhanced it. This dish is very simple and easy to put together.Pin It Now!
I started eating Tofu when I moved into Singapore. How I started is a story. When I moved in, (Seems very long) I had one neighbor who was born and brought up in Singapore. He helped me to get used to the local Singapore Market. So we used to go for the vegetable marketing at the wet market. And she used to buy a lot of Tofu base stuff and of course she got really surprised that I don't eat meat or Egg. She repeatedly asked me not even one meal or not even few days in a week etc.. After that she told me Tofu is good for health esp for Vegetarian. Since I didn't even know what it was I never bought it for almost 2-3 years. After I started working, when we go out with colleagues if I am there they accommodate my dietary requirement most cases. Almost 6 month later they asked me whether I have tried any Chinesse vegetarian dishes like mock meat and Tofu etc.. I told them no. So they brought me to chinese restaurant and when the dish arrived I felt my heart beat. The first dish I tried was Crispy tofu coated with Cornflakes. I kind of liked it. So from there onwards I started to include tofu as part of diet once kids started going to school .Tofu became regular at our house hold. I have been doing this tofu sandwich all the time but most of the time during week days. I wanted to do a blog post on this all the time. Never got a chance. I had a few days off this week and I was at home so I decided to have a good brunch so I had this Sandwich as I had all the ingredients.Pin It Now!

Pound cake with Cream Cheese - Cream Cheese Pound cake - Eggless Cream cheese pound cake - Baking recipes - Cake recipes
Cheese cake is one the most loved baking recipe in my household esp eggless cheese cake. It is also one of the most popular recipe in my blog. I wanted to try pound cake with it. But every time I get cream cheese I end up making our favourite cheese cake. So this time when I bought cream cheese I purposely bought it in lower qty so that it is not enough to make cheese cake. When I started doing the cake my son was enquiring about what was I baking.I wanted to give some surprise so I didn't tell him about cream cheese. When I mentioned pound cake he went like are you hidding something? Because I have basic pound cake and eggless two tone cake already on the blog, he asked why I was still taking pictures. Finally when he tasted this cake, which was very rich and tasty, I told him about cream cheese and he said now the cat is out of the bag. Let's move on to the recipePin It Now!
