Carrot Thoran Rice – Simply Variety

    It was a long chapati week for us. Chapati is Ayden’s favorite food, but I make them very rarely because he won’t eat anything else with chapati, just plain chapaties. And it’s hard to feed him some vegetables or non veg. So I gave him chapaties for few days and I have stopped chapati menu for now. This Carrot Thoran Rice is very delicious and especially kids will love this. It’s an easy recipe for lunch box, can prepare with leftover thoran. We had the rice with fish fry and raita, that’s just more than enough and perfect combo. Try my recipe and share with your loved once. Read more

One Pot Pepper Potato Rice

    There is a new routine got started in our life, our little boy started going to Kinder care. He is very excited and happy to be with his friends. We all are fully dedicated for him, my evening cooking got shifted to morning, Binson will pick Ayden & drop him home, by lunch time I finish my work and will be ready to spend rest of the day with Ayden. When somebody is there with us we won’t do anything more for them, but we feel to do some special things when they are with us for limited time, yes, now there is a time I miss Ayden. Right now am trying to reduce my cooking time & concentrate more on my boy. Read more

Beetroot Pulav

    Beetroot is all about sweet taste. Preparing any spicy dish with beet is really challenging. Am not so found of beetroot dishes with rice because of it’s dominating sweetness & what I usually do is cook separately the beets, drain out the beet water to make beet syrup & serve them as a healthy drink and boiled beets will be used for spicy dish preparation. When taking healthy aspects, every meal should be nutrient dense, this recipe is dense in nutrients, easy to cook, colorful & attractive. Try this out even with less spice, kids gonna love this.

Vishu Special

    My most beautiful memory about  Vishu is “Kannikonna”. A tree full of hanging flowers with lovely bright yellow color, wow, what a visual treat from nature. There was a Kannikonna in front of my house, which I used to watch the changes during these days, no leaves will be there on the tree as Vishu come closer, just full of flowers.
    Obviously the next favorite thing is “Vishukatta”, our hindu family friends inform us a day before, not to cook anything & they bring lot of curries, Vishukatta, fries, payasam….. It’s so nice to eat a lot without any effort…

But today I took the effort and prepared the Vishukatta and mango curry. Hope you all enjoyed the day, once again Happy Vishu !!!  Read more
