Navratri Special ~ Katte Pongali – Rice with Moong dal

Katte Pongali is a traditional Andhra style rice and moong dal recipe that is often served in temples as Prasadam (Prashad).

Quick & Easy Chicken Pulao

Many frown upon the plain ‘pulao’ considering it inferior to the pampered ‘biryani’. The chicken pulao that we make at home is no less than any saffron laced biryani in spite of its simplicity. A straightforward and quick pulao recipe that features basmati rice, chicken, coconut milk and fragrant spices. As this decadent one pot dish simmers, the khushboo (aroma) that emanates the kitchen, will put the glamorous biryani to shame.


Hyderabadi Aloo Biryani

There is something really good about Vizag weather since the past few days. Pleasant cool weather during peak summer season is very unusual and called for leisure vegetarian cooking with warming flavors. Aloo Biryani and Capsicum Tomato curry was our meal this afternoon.


Pudina Pulao – Mint Rice

Light, aromatic and immensely flavorful rice dish that uses very few ingredients. The mint flavor is subtly infused in the rice without being overpowering. Tinted with a light green shade, smelling of warmth and sunshine, pudina pulao makes for an endearing meal to serve family and friends.


Egg Biryani

Comfort food, Egg biryani, makes for a perfect weekend meal with raita and curry. Yesterday, I was inspired to make a flavored rice and since our family loves eggs, I decided on Egg biryani which has a striking resemblance to Hyderabadi Chicken Dum Biryani. Its easy to put together, substantial and full of flavor.
