Mixed Veg Curry - Restaurant Style

I had tried this Mix veg curry long time back. It turned out very creamy and tasted just like in restaurants. I used frozen mix veg bag along with some other cut vegetables, to increase the volume. This dish is perfect for feeding a crowd. Relatively quick, filling,  uncomplicated and tasty!

Do try!

Spinach Pulav

This recipe is similar to the last recipe. Almost same recipe, just change in vegetable, gives you a very different tasting rice bath. It is very easy to make and a good option for lunch box. 

It tastes like palak paneer mixed with rice and kids will love it. I felt addition of potatoes or fried paneer would’ve gone well with the taste. 

Do try!

Corn Pulav

It’s interesting how change of vegetables can change the flavor of rice baths drastically. I tried couple of rice baths from the same blog, with almost similar masala, but just change in vegetables. I was very happy with the outcome. I just tweaked the recipe a little bit. Other than that everything else was followed as in original recipe. 
Corn makes it very likable for kids too. 

Do try!

Spinach Chutney

Presenting another healthy and tasty chutney recipe, that I had tried sometime back. Very very very tasty and very easy to make. Adding garlic tadka is like icing on the cake. 
I might have added more palak than required(in the original recipe), as my chutney was much greener than the original recipe. It took me a good amount of spinach to make a decent amount of chutney. But you can always reduce the spinach and add more masala like in the original recipe. 

Enjoy this yummy chutney with some hot rice in this cold weather!

Sweet Potato(Genasu) Bajji / Bajji batter

I wanted to post something special for New Year. I thought so long and hard as to what to post, by the time Sankranthi was here :) 
Sankranthi came and went, but I am still thinking. Frustrated, I opened my laptop today and decided to post something and just be done with it :) 

Thankfully I found Genasu bajji(which I had completely forgotten), which I recently learnt from my mom. 

This is my mom’s trademark recipe. Unlike other bajjis, here you add freshly ground masala, which gives a very unique taste. I’m glad to share this special recipe with you’ll today. 

Happy New Year! Happy Sankranthi!!

Masala Puri

One plate Masala Puri and one plate bhel puri, on a rainy day in monsoon season, was my most cherished snack cum dinner back in Bangalore. 

My parents never let me and my brother eat road-side food and hence we never tasted chats for a very long time. Chats were/still is thought of to be prepared in unclean environments. Then when my father got to know about this chat-angadi with proper infrastructure and visibly convincing cleanliness, he started bringing it home. He used to bring a big pack of masala puri and bhel puri, packed to go, coming back from his office. Assembling them was my job. I can still remember the fragrance of the ragda that’s added to the masala puri, that would make me want to dig in asap, right out of the container.

With the temperature dipping in the bay area, what better to eat than our very own spicy Masala Puri.

Masala Puri is one of those chats, which even Mumbaites might not know(I might be wrong). It’s basically crushed chat-puris served with peas-ragda(gravy) with typical chat garnishing. 

When I came across this bangalore-style masala puri recipe in one of my favorite blogs, Swampaaka, I jumped with joy. Because whatever recipe I’ve tried of this blog has come out well so far. I was sure this would come out good too. It turned out better than my already high expectations.
