Mixed Vegetable Salad

Reliance Fresh And Summer Salads

Satish can live off salads 365 days, literally. Unfortunately we don’t get lettuce which is his favorite but I try my best to get some, thanks to my chef friends who get fresh lettuce from their regular suppliers.:) With the recent opening of Reliance Fresh in Vizag, I have been able to find some vegetables […]

Andhra Style Masala Dosa

Erra Karam Masala Dosa

The ever versatile masala dosa in all its variations and myraid fillings is a meal by itself. Erra kaaram masala dosa is basically one of the incarnations of the masala dosa.

Thotakura Vepudu - Chauli/Amaranth Stir Fry

Thotakura Vepudu – Amaranth Leaves Stir-Fry

Greens hold a special place in my kitchen, though I have a tough time getting Nehal overcome his aversion to eating greens. What I usually do is camoflauge a greens stir fry dish with some grated cheese and tomato sauce and prepare a sandwich for him.:) Satish and I are fond of most greens and […]

Rava Idli

Rava Idli – Groundnut Pachadi (Peanut Chutney)

Rolled out tortillas before preparing taco shells

My son, Nehal relishes his favorite Mexican snack – tacos and I set myself the task of preparing home made taco shells right from scratch using corn tortillas, loaded with a delicious paneer-vegetable-baked beans filling as a tea-time snack and use the left over tortillas to prepare enchilada casserole for dinner. The tacos I prepare […]

Chettinad Chicken Curry

Chettinad Style Chicken Curry

I first had this fiery, deeply flavorful chicken dish as a friend’s home along with dosas and ever since hooked to it. I was told it’s a traditional Chettinad chicken curry and that there are quite a few variations to this recipe. In today’s version, chicken is simmered in coconut milk and gets its unique […]

Thotakura Pappu - Amaranth Leaves Tur Dal

Thotakura Pappu – Amaranth Leaves-Tur Dal

There is nothing more comforting, wholesome and nutritious than a bowl of rice and dal cooked with greens. Simple, honest food at its best is what I’d describe lentils cooked with greens. It was thotakura pappu and beetroot vepudu (stir-fry) with rice for lunch today. Thotakura (amaranth, chauli, mulakeerai) Thotakura aka amaranth leaves are available […]

Tomato Coriander Chutney with Idlis

Tomato Kothimira Pachadi

There is nothing more satisfying than cooking with vegetables grown in one’s own backyard. Today I used a few not so ripe orange tinge tomatoes from our vegetable garden to make a perfectly simple pachadi. To make this deliciously tangy pachadi all you need are simple everyday ingredients like fresh firm tomatoes, coriander, green chillis, […]
