I made cilantro chapati last night and it cameout so flavourful. I will post the recipe soon. When I was thinking to make a curry to go with it. I remembered the chopped carrot and beans which I kept frozen couple of weeks ago and also the almonds which were lying in the fridge. I thought of making something with that, then came to a conclusion of making a vegetable curry with almonds..I also throwed one potato which I cubed along with a hanful of peas in it..It came out so good and hubby loved it a lot.

Tamarind is such a basic ingrediant in indian cooking. No recipe is complete without this awesome fruit. The tartness in this makes any gravy spectacular. The one hard thing is extracting the juice from this. Soaking it and then squeezing the pulp and straining it. I really find it hard when you have no time on hand. So i came up with a homemade pulp recipe which makes your life so easier.It is very easy to make too...

கனவா குழம்பு / Koonthal Kulambu / Kadamba Fish Curry / Baby Squid Cooked in a Roasted Coconut Sauce /
This is gravy which I was talking about. My hubby's favorite one. My first attempt of cleaning and making of a spicy squid gravy, which turned out sensational. Everyone in my family loved it, I even send a small container for my sister and she loved it a lot. I have another batch of squidy lying in my freezer, I am planning to make something different with that. May be it will turn into calamari fries or a spicy squid roast, who knows..I will updates as soon as I am done with that.

Homemade Spring Roll Sheets( Samosa Sheets) / Spring Roll Wrappers / Spring Roll Pastry (WITH VIDEO)
Spring rolls are one of my favorite. I even got a order for 100 spring rolls for a function in my neighbourhood. Though it takes sometime to make, it is completely worth every second. It involves some steps to make spring rolls. The most important part is making of the sheets. It takes most of the time, but once you have made sheets and filling, then you are few minutes away from a crispy spring rolls. I have given couple of videos as well for this.
