Vatha Kuzhambu is always delicious. We can make vatha kuzhambu with dried sundakkai or manathakali vathal or we can also add veggies such as onions, ladysfinger, carrot etc. Bitter gourd, we all know is a very healthy vegetable. A must to include veggie especially for Diabetic patients. Adding bitter gourd, makes this vatha kuzhambu more healthy and delicious. I have added little jaggery to bring out the tanginess of the tamarind. Mix this healthy Bittergourd Vatha Kuzhambu with rice and you would surely want more and more!

Red Coconut Chutney, is a very popular chutney variety in most of the southern parts of Tamil Nadu. A spicy version of Coconut chutney with a rich flavor of garlic and onions. A perfect accompaniment for Idli, dosa and many breakfast dishes. Adding 1 garlic clove itself gives a high aroma. This is one of the chutney very famous in Murugan Idli Shop in Tamilnadu. 

Onion thepla (Onion Paratha), Onions salted with masala along with generous addition of fresh coriander leaves are mixed with wheat flour and made it into delicious paratha (thepla). A very unique and tasty Paratha variety. Always we tend to use veggies like carrot, radish, bottle gourd and many more veggies in making thepla. But this onion-masala will be very delicious. The fresh coriander leaves will make this ultimately yummy and tasty. Serve this delicious Onion Thepla with raita or dal or any gravies of your choice and enjoy the dish!

Rasam is a very light and tasty main course for rice. Rasam can also be served as soup. Generally tomato-dal rasam is the conventional. We do make different variety of rasam. Lemon rasam is one such variety. This is a orange season, and I use the orange peel to make delicious Orange kuzhambu. When I made orange kuzhambu today, I got an idea of making orange rasam. Then I tried making orange rasam and it turned out delicious. Orange Rasam, a Rasam flavored with Orange zest, lemon and orange juice, and freshly ground rasam powder. A very tempting and appetizing rasam. Can be served as soup also. 

Adai Aviyal is one of the famous tamil traditional protein rich breakfast dish. Aviyal goes very well with Adai. This Aviyal is little different from the Aviyal i make for the lunch. I add curd instead of tamarind here. Next time when you have any guest for the breakfast, try adai aviyal instead of conventional idly/dosa and I am sure they will appreciate this dish. You can also try this for an evening snack though its heavy.

Paneer Bhurji is a very famous dish. Crumbled Paneer are cooked with spices and its a perfect breakfast dish or accompaniment for Indian Bread. Paneer Bhurji masala, is concocted with crumbled paneer, onion-tomato-cashew gravy. This is a very rich and delicious vegetarian gravy that is a perfect accompaniment for any Indian Bread. Most of is like paneer so much and this would be a great paneer dish to impress your family.

Peas Pulao is a simple rice variety made using Basmati rice and Green Peas. We can cook this in a pressure cooker, microwave, rice cooker or directly in a Tawa. I prefer not to use the pressure cooker for the Pulao as the rice will get s]mashed due to the pressure. A very simple and easy to make rice variety. Since this is very plain rice without much of masalas or spices, it is better to serve with dal or any other veggie gravy along with a raitha of your choice. 

Ulli Vadai (Onion Vada | Onion Dumplings) is a very famous snacks being sold in the tea shops in Nagercoil (and in Kerala too).  The aroma of the fried onion with fresh masala is very appetizing and its a great accompaniment for the evening coffee/tea.  This can be made very quickly and and with very few ingredients that we have in our household. Next time, you may want to treat your guest with Ulli Vadai and i am sure that they will like it very much. 

Cookies are always favorite for kids. Most of the store bought cookies  might have been made of bleached flour which is not good for the health. I would love to make cookies at home using wholewheat flour which is considerably better than the store bought cookies. This is one such simple cookie made with wholewheat flour. These Wholewheat Butter Cookies are very crispy and delicious and a best accompaniment for a cup of hot coffee / tea.

Red Velvet Cake, a cake with red color or red-brown color. It is traditionally prepared as a layered cake with cream cheese topping. Beetroot or red food color is added to get the dark red color in the cake. A moist Red Velvet cake is a perfect dessert for a festive mood. As valentine's Day is approaching, I thought this recipe would be useful. This is an eggless version. But still we get the same moist and spongy cake and with the cream cheese frosting and sugar sprinklers, this would be really an awesome dessert.

Brussel Sprouts are like mini cabbages. This leafy vegetable is rich in vitamins. We can find these nutrition rich vegetable in salad section of the departmental stores. Usually used in salads, but we can also stir-fry or saute it. I tried out this Brussel Sprouts masala and it came out awesome. I used cashew to make the gravy much more delicious. My family enjoyed this masala with chapati. Try this unique Brussel Sprouts Masala and I'm sure you would love it.

Masala Peanuts, a quick and yummy snack for a evening tea. A most favourite snack for all age groups.  Simple, quick to make and crunchy snack for a perfect evening.  Most of us look for a crunchy snack with evening tea. This is one of the popular evening snack served in many office pantries, sweet shops, road side shops and even in many restaurants. A handful of crispy masala peanuts with a cup of hot tea, hmmm lovely combo in the evening!

Masala Chaai (Masala Tea) is a one of the favorite Indian beverage. Aroma rich homemade masala powder along with fresh ginger, milk, sugar & tea powder, makes this tea really delicious. Most of us love Masala chai compared to plain tea. Instead of using whole masala every time we make tea, we can use the whole masala to make masala powder and store it in air-tight container and use it whenever we make tea. This masala chai powder gives a wonderful flavor to the tea and the spice we will enjoy with the hot tea.

Kara Vadai is one of the popular snack in Nagercoil. A simple to make crispy evening snack. Its made with urial , raw rice and parboiled rice along with spices and herbs. Sometimes, we feel to bit something spice and crispy in the evening along with a hot tea / coffee. This would be so good when you serve hot. If the kara vadai cools down, then it will be little tough to consume. Also we need a dip like coconut chutney or green coconut chutney to consume this delicious Kara vadai.

Beetroot poriyal, a healthy thuvaran / poriyal for any rice varieties. This recipe is slightly different from the traditional way of doing poriyal. Generally we cook the vegetable and then do the seasoning. I tasted this wonderful taste of beetroot poriyal in one of my Telugu friends home and the variation made the dish an extraordinary taste. Especially the kids will enjoy this dish.

Gobi 65 is a popular appetizer or starter made using cauliflower and mixed blend of Indian Spices. It is quite popular dish in any Indian Restaurants. A perfect dish for any potluck or parties. There are many variation in making Gobi 65. I have adopted one of the commonly used method of making this crunchy and munchy Gobi 65. We can also serve this as an accompaniment for Vegetable Fried Rice.

PuliKuzhambu is one of the Instant kuzhambu variety. Easy, Quick & yummy kuzhambu that you can make in 10-15 mins without any hassle. All we need to have is Puli Kuzhambu Powder which is a handy ingredient that makes the dish instant and quick to make. Onion always gives a wonderful flavour to Puli kuzhambu or Kara kuzhambu. Adding ladysfinger along with onion gives an additional flavour. Serve this tasty Onion Puli Kuzhambu with hot steaming rice and enjoy the dish!
