Ulundhu kali is south Indian delight which is high in protein,low in fat and very good for women which helps to strengthen hip bones. One of the most healthy dishes given especially to girls. Its traditionally eaten with jaggery and gingelly oil.  Especially when a girl reaches her puberty age, this is one such nutritional rich laddo that will be tasty as well as so healthy that gives her enough strength to manage her rest of her days especially during the period days as well as during pregnancy.

Mango Kulfi, another refreshing "Beat the Heat" lip-smacking dish! We can easily make this wonderful delight with few ingredients that are mostly available anytime in our home. Especially during mango season, we get fresh mangoes and we can make homemade mango kulfi. I got Banganapalli mangoes from Indian Store and immediately my kids asked for kulfi and so I made a fresh batch. Kulfi tastes even better when we use the traditional clay pots to freeze but if not we can use the normal popsicle moulds and we can make these yummy Kulfi.

Adai is a very scrumptious breakfast dish. Adai Aviyal is one of the famous dish in most of the restaurants in Southern India. Broken Wheat is a very healthy ingredient which is often recommended by all the nutritionist whenever we start speaking about dieting. Broken wheat Adai is a healthy breakfast dish as we are not including rice in this preparation, yet a very tasty adai which goes very well with aviyal. I personally like serving this samba godhumai adai with panavellam (jaggery / palm sugar).

Munthiri kothu (Chittu Urundai) is a popular sweet dish in Kanyakumari. Since my MIL is from Nagercoil, she used to make this munthiri kothu often. Even for Ganesha Chaturti, she used to make this as yummy Munthiri kothu as an offering to Lord Ganesha. The main ingredients for filling are Green moong, Sesame seeds, Dry coconut and jaggery. For the outer cover, we need to make a batter with rice and wheat flour and which is used to coat the moong balls and finally deep fry the modak. Mundhiri means "cashew nuts"but, there is no relationship between cashew and this recipe and it doesn't even use cashew in it. In colloquial Tamil of southern districts of tamilnadu and in kerala, mundhiri translate as grapes. It is also deep fried as bunches of three or four which resembles a bunch of grapes, hence the name. 

Most of the time, thinking of kids friendly lunch box dishes are our main challenge. Most of the times, kids tend to bring back most of their lunch back because of many silly reasons. I personally feel that  right dishes with perfect taste always makes them love their lunch. I try to experiment with many dishes and for my kids, and personally my kids love all rice varieties. Especially Cabbage rice and carrot rice are their favorite. This Cabbage Rice is pretty simple to make. Most of us make this same method and prepare poriyal but with this poriyal we can add rice and enrich with ghee and you won't believe kids will love this awesome dish and for us the purpose of making them eat a vegetable also gets completed with this rice!

Paneer Kolhapuri is a very popular Kolhapuri dish which is rich in Paneer and spices. Usually served with Chapati, poori or any Indian Breads. Kolhapuri is a city in Maharashtra and this is one of the famous and popular dish. Spice is on the little higher side in this dish and I love this spicier gravy with Indian Breads. Also this time, I made this awesome dish on a fasting day and hence this is a No Onion No Garlic dish. This No Onion No Garlic Paneer Kolhapuri subzi is good with fried rice or pulao also.

Onion Pakoda is a yummy, crispy evening snack. A cup of tea/Coffee with spicy onion pakoda is a wonderful combination. Onion Pakoda is one of the popular evening snack in many fast food shops / pantries / restaurants. We can make many variations of pakoda like Oats Pakoda / Semiya pakoda / Cashewnuts pakoda / peanuts pakoda. Whatsoever new variations we make, the conventional onion pakoda is always a big hit in my family. Especially, during cloudy / rainy days, a cup of hot coffee / tea with a bowl of onion pakoda would make the evening more wonderful.

Chitra Pournami
The full moon day on tamil calendar month “Chitra” is observed  as Chitra Pournami. It is a special occasion for Chitragupta who is the assistant of Lord Yama, the God of Death. This auspicious day is also dedicated to Lord Indra, the God of Devas. Chithra pournami is famous for Meenakshi amman and Kallazhagar also.  It is mentioned in our religious books that those who observe fast on this day would be relieved of death fear(Yama Bayam Neengum).

Easy to make delicious Jamuns made with homemade or store bought Paneer. Quick and simple to make yummy dessert! Most of us get store-bought Jamun Mix which makes our work easier, but this Paneer Jamun is very simple to make with less hassle and no big expertise needed. With small kids at home, mostly every week I get Paneer from the Indian Store as most of the kids love Paneer! Usually I make Paneer gravies, last week I made Paneer Kheer and my kids loved it and this week its Paneer Gulab Jamun!

Lauki Kofta is made of deep fried bottle gourd dumplings immersed in a spicy tomato-Curd gravy. We can also do this with usual onion-tomato gravy, but I tried making this as no onion no garlic so that we can even make this yummy dish on the fasting days also. This is one of the simple to make kofta curry. Whenever we think of kofta, we all love Malai kofta so much than any other varieties. But Bottlegourd is also very delicious and also healthy. We can also steam cook the bottle gourd dumplings or use Paniyaram pan to avoid more oil. Try this No Onion No Garlic Lauki Kofta and Im sure you will enjoy with Roti!

Punugulu / Punukkulu is a Andhra snack and common street food in Vijayawada and few coastal districts of Andhra Pradesh. Punugulu is a deep fried snack made with rice, urad dal and other spices. But we can make this delicious and crispy Punugulu with left over Idli / Dosa batter or even with fresh Idli Batter. Most of us make Idli batter every week for breakfast so mostly its very handy to make it with idli batter. Idli batter along with few other ingredients makes this wonderful evening snack!
