Jeeraga kuzhambu is one of the traditional kuzhambu variety. The rich aroma and flavour of cumin seeds adds a scrumptious taste to the kuzhambu. This is a very simple dish made with onion and garlic. Garlic is optional, we can skip garlic and use only onions also. During fasting days, we can skip both onion and garlic and add fried ladys finger to the kuzhambu. A quick and tasty kuzhambu. Serve this yummy Jeera kuzhambu with plain rice along with a teaspoon of gingelly oil or ghee and enjoy your food!!!

Thepla / Paratha is one of my favourite dish. We can make use many different vegetables and ingredients and make thepla. One such is Sweet Corn. Sweet Corn with coriander leaves and roasted fennel seeds mixed with wheat flour to make flat bread. This sweet corn coriander thepla is a unique variety of thepla with rich flavour of corn and coriander leaves. We can serve this yummy Sweet corn Coriander Thepla with any raitha or chutney or dal. 

Biryani is a mixed rice dish made with spices, rice and meat or vegetables. Generally Biriyani is associated with Mughal cuisine of Delhi or  it is traditionally associated with the Hyderabadi cuisine. Biryani has a stronger taste of curried rice due to a higher amount of spices than the Pulao. Normally, biriyani is cooked in low flame with layers. Two layers of rice with one layer of vegetable. But we can mix the rice and vegetables and cook it altogether also. This recipe is shared by one of my friend who stays in Hyderabad. She taught me to cook this simple and delicious biriyani. I am not sure about the reason for this name "Nawabi Biriyani":-) Guess it is from some Nawab in Hyderabad :-). When we have unplanned guests, this is one of the dish which could be made easily with available ingredients in our kitchen. Lets see how to cook this simple and tasty dish!!!

Idli is a conventional breakfast dish in Southern Parts of India. Idli is a healthy dish too as we are steam cooking it without adding any oil. Idli is very good even for infants and toddlers. The first solid dish that we start for any infants is Idli. Though Idli is very healthy, many of the kids even adults doesn't like to have Idli. So, to make the Idli more appetizing, we can make many varieties and variations and treat out kids and family. One such variety is Spicy Tawa Idli. Cooked Idlis are tossed in tawa along with capsicum, onion, tomatoes, peas and spice powders that make the whole dish appealing and increase the appetite to have more servings!!!

This is one of my favourite Lunch menu. This lunch menu is very tasty and also easy to make. Though all of the dishes involves grinding, still we could finish this menu quickly. Vazhaipoo Usili is the slightest complex dish among the 3 dishes as it takes more time to remove the kalan and chop the vazhaipoo. Also we need to soak the dals for usili the previous night. If we forget, then we could add hot boiling water to the dals and soak it for an hour before making usili. 

Bitter gourd/melon is one of the best plant foods that helps improve diabetic and toxemia conditions. Bitter gourds are very low in calories but dense with precious nutrients. It is an excellent source of vitamins B1, B2, and B3, C, magnesium, folate, zinc, phosphorus, manganese, and has high dietary fiber. It is rich in iron, contains twice the beta-carotene of broccoli, twice the calcium of spinach, and twice the potassium of a banana.

Such a heathly plant food is ignored by many of us because of its bitter taste. Especially, children ignore this because of its bitterness. Fortunately, my daughters love bitter gourd. For the people who has aversion to bittergourd, these Bittergourd Cutlet (Karela Tikkis) would be a best way to in take bittergourd. So now lets see how to make this Bittergourd Cutlet (Karela Tikkis)...

Adai is a popular dish in Southern Part of India especially in Tamilnadu. Adai is made of rice and mixed dals and it is usually served with Aviyal. I love having adai with jaggery. We can make adai with mixed millets to have a healthier dish. We can choose any different millets for this adai. In this recipe, I have chosen Kambu, Raagi and Thinai along with rice to make healthier adai. Lets see how to make this healthy and yummy Mixed Millets adai (Sirudhanya Paruppu Adai).

Manathakkali Keerai, is a very healthy greens especially for curing mouth-ulcers. In my childhood days, our manathakkali keerai was abundant in my garden and my mom used to make keerai masiyal often. Especially when I get mouth ulcer, my mom gives Manathakkali keerai saru which includes the greens and also the coconut milk, both of them play a very important role in curing mouth-ulcers. Even my grandmother ask us to chew the greens raw if we have severe mouth-ulcer. Such a good medicinal recipe would be of great help to many of us. Lets see how to make this healthy Manathakkali Keerai Saru Recipe.

Kadhamba curry is nothing but a mix of many vegetables. Here i have mixed beans, cabbage, carrot and peas. This is all time favourite for my husband and i believe many of us like this too as it is rich in combination of vegetables. This is again simple to make and kadamba curry would be helpful with respect to the quantity if we have guests at our home.

Sakkarai Pongal is a traditional sweet dish for Pongal festival and other festivals or events. In margazhi month, sakkarai pongal would be a main prasadam in most of the temples. Instead of the adding jaggery we can use palm sugar and make pongal. Panam Kalkandu Pongal (Palm Sugar Pongal), is a very healthy and yummy dish. Palm sugar is a very healthy ingredient especially for diabetic persons. I will help in preventing diabetics and also aids in loosing weight. So lets try to make this Palm sugar pongal for this pongal festival.

Thanni Kozhukattai is a popular kerala dish. Its a very healthier breakfast dish too as we are not going to use any oil for making this dish. Thanni Kozhukattai is nothing but, Parboiled rice with coconut balls cooked in boiling water. This is usually served with the water in which it is cooked. The water will be so yummy and my DIL would love to drink the water itself. The best accompaniment for this thanni kozhukattai is piping hot coconut chutney.  Lets see how to make this yummy breakfast dish!!!

Thinai (Foxtail millet) is a healthy and nutrition rich millet. I have given its benefits in my other posts. Such a wonderful millet should be our day to day ingredient in our kitchen. We can make lots of dishes using this healthy millet. The dishes which we prepare using rice can be substituted with Thinai. Generally during festivals, my MIL would make Kadalai Paruppu Pradaman or Moongdal Pradaman. Instead of these conventional payasam dishes, today I tried Thinai Pradaman and it turned out amazingly tasty and yummy and my MIL loved it so much. So lets all make this healthy pradaman for festivals and auspicious occasions. Lets see how to make this yummy and tasty Thinai Pradaman (Foxtail Millet Kheer)...
