Bangaladumpa Vepudu ~ Potato Fry (2)

Potato stir fry in all its variations never disappoints. I am especially enamored by this particular stir fry (I could eat it every day and still never get enough). A second helping is always a must with this stir fry. Any left overs (which is rare), goes as a filling in my sandwich.

Gutti Vankaya ~ Stuffed Eggplant Roast

Its July and its raining. Overcast skies and drizzles have made their appearance in Vizag. Monsoon that has been long overdue has finally arrived and hopefully we will have good rains this year. On many a rain-filled day you will find me serving hot chocolate to Nehal while we adults enjoy a hot cuppa of […]

Bendakaya Vepudu ~ Okra Stir fry

The ever-abundant okra is a regular at our home. Armed with fresh tender okra from rythu bazaar (farmer’s market), I made this light, bright and healthy okra stir fry along with Pappu pulusu for our meal today. The addition of roasted peanuts enlivens the okra and lends a crunchy layer of flavor. Just do your […]

Dondakaya Vepudu – Tendli Stir fry (3)

An every day vegetable, ordinary in looks, affordable and available all year round is dondakaya aka ivy gourd. My visit to the Rythu bazaar (farmers market) would be incomplete if I didn’t buy atleast half a kilo of dondakayalu. And the gravitational pull towards dondakaya stir fry is especially high on days when pappu pulusu […]

Royallu Vepudu – Prawn Stir Fry

Prawns are our family’s favorite sea-food. A few readers emailed me requesting for more sea food recipes since they find very few recipes featuring fish, prawns and crabs. The reason there are hardly any sea food recipes is because, I usually prepare sea-food for dinner (I buy the fresh catch that arrives after 2 pm) […]

Vankaya Bangaladumpa Vepudu – Brinjal Potato Stir fry

Today we have an unassuming, simple stir fry prepared with very familiar everyday vegetables, Potato and Brinjals. In this vepudu recipe, the potatoes are cooked until fork-tender while the cubed brinjals tend to lose shape with the fleshy pulp melding with the spices to bring out sharp caramalized flavors. Isn’t wonderful how two down-to-earth vegetables […]

Vankaya Vepudu – Eggplant Stir fry (2)

The key to this stir fry recipe is a roasted and powdered magic spice blend that sets everything off, taking the quartered eggplants to their full glory. Don’t miss out on the asafoetida, just a pinch gives a whole new perspective to this easy stir fry that goes well with rotis and rice. Not to […]

A simple, crunchy, dry saute (vepudu/poriyal) is Cabbage stir-fry with the perfect blend of color and taste. A stand-out recipe where cabbage is mildly spiced with red chilli, cumin and coriander powders and garnished with fresh coriander leaves. One of my favorites as a side to go with rice, rasam and appadam. Today, I made […]
