Potato Stew is a very easy and simple dish of Kerala that goes well with Appam, Poori, Chapathi, Puttu, Idiyappam, or even with plain bread. Recently, I tasted this in my friend's house. She served this yummy potato stew with brown rice Idiyappam and it tasted divine.  My MIL used to grind the coconut and add the coconut paste to this stew, but my friend told that its conventional to use the coconut milk instead of grinding and adding the coconut paste. So, this time, I tried adding coconut milk and it turned out so yummy. Also, instead of adding only potato, I enriched with peas, carrot and beans to make it much healthier.

Fresh and aroma rich mint leaves are very healthy. Adding the fresh mint leaves to rasam enhances the flavour and also would be a variation from the usual tomato rasam. Many of us love to have rasam as a soup. We can either mix the rasam with rice or drink the rasam after a heavy meals. This mint rasam would be very nutritious and good for our stomach and helps in digestion. We can either saute the mint leaves along with the seasoning or we can grind it. If we grind the mint leaves, the rasam will rich aroma which some of us might not like. So we can saute it and make the rasam little mild. Try this version of the mint rasam and share your experience!

Thanksgiving is almost here, Cranberry season started.  Fresh cranberries are always tempting me. I love making cranberry chutney and cranberry thokku.

Kothamalli thogayal, is a very easy aromatic and yummy thogayal variety. Coriander leaves are very healthy greens. Most of us use coriander leaves for garnishing. Sometimes our kids doesn't like to see chopped coriander leaves added in rasam, sambar or other gravies. Thogayal is one easy dish to make them eat this healthy greens. This thogayal is a great kids lunch box dish too. We just need to dry grind the thogayal and then add the seasoning and mix with cooked fluffy rice and there you go! You will have a nice aromatic and tasty kothamalli thogayal rice ready to for packed lunch! I have published another version of this kothamalli thogayal which is a spicier version and mostly used as pickle. This is a mild version for kids!

Paratha, Indian flat bread are so delicious and healthy. We can make Parathas with many different veggies and greens and make it healthier. I personally like spinach paratha because its one way to make my kids eat spinach without much trouble. This time, I wanted to make Basil Paratha. Freshly grown basil in my garden always tempts me to make some basil recipes. So, instead of regular spinach paratha, I used fresh basil leaves. Wow! they are awesome. The basil leaves gives a lovely aroma and flavour to the whole dish. We can serve these basil paratha with dal/ gravy or ant raitha of your choice and enjoy the dish!

Rawa (Sooji) Kesari is one of the traditional sweet variety in every Indian Kitchen. It is one of the simplest sweet dish to learn and do easily even for teens.

We all prepare this Rava kesari for many occasions including festivals, events or simple parties. 

Okkarai is a famous traditional South Indian sweet dish that is made on the auspicious day of Diwali. I still remember my older days where in my mom prepares only Okkarai and Vadai for Diwali. Probably we weren't afford to make other sweets and snacks during those days.

This simple dish Okkarai needs only less expensive ingredients and readily available materials in any house. Lets see how to prepare this yummy sweet dish now...

Motichoor Ladoos are one of the most popular Sweet sold in most of the mithai shop in India. Till last year, I was looking for the boondhi ladle that has tiny holes. But many shops told that specific tiny holed boondhi ladle is available only in North India. Then when I had a casual talk with one of my friend who is a Maharashtrian, she advised me to use the usual perforated ladle and then grind the ladoo mixture to a coarse paste. Though the ladoo doesn't look like the motichoor ladoo we get it in shops, still the coarse and nutty texture has the same flavour and taste and my family enjoyed this ladoo very much. The orange color of this ladoo make the ladoos look more appealing and appetizing.For most of the festivals, we would love to share the sweets we made with our family, friends and relatives. This is one such best sweet that can be given as a gift to all our friends and relatives.

Mullu Thenguzhal (Mullu Muruku) or Magizhambpoo Murukku is one of the crispy, easy to make recipe. We can do this quickly with store bough rice flour.

For marriages, seemandham, and many other events, this magizhampoo murukku is kept as seer dish. For Diwali festival, it is a tradition in my family to make magizhampoo murukku along with ribbon pakoda (nada).
