Cabbage Thoran / Cabbage Cooked in a Spicy Coconut Masala


Thorans are easy to throw together, because everything calls for the same spices which are ground with coconut and stir fried. You can make thoran with beetroots, carrots, cucumber and many more. I love this because they are so easy to make in the morning, this one takes less than 15 mins to make. And the taste is so fresh and clean.

Chicken Manchow Soup



This soup was in my mind ever since I had it one of the restaurant which we went recently. That was the first time I heard and tasted this yummy goodness. It was spicy at the same time it has lots of flavours in it. The whole soup was finished with a crispy noodle topping which really made it. I wanted to recreate this soup and post it here.So I made this one night and had it with grilled chicken sandwich and baked chicken nuggets. They were delicious.

முள்ளங்கி சாம்பார் / Radish Sambar / Radish & Channa Dal Gravy



Yay..It the end of the week. I can't believe how fast this week has gone. It was such a tiring week for me. I should do something or go somewhere this weekend..Lets see what we have in store for us..

Now moving back to the recipe. Radish was one of the most hated vegetable of mine before marriage. But after marriage I started to pick few radishes when I was visiting market. Radishes are not only cheap, it is packed with lots of minerals. Mainly it is good for people who are in diet, radishes helps in losing weight.  So what I make with that, somedays I make this Radish paratha, but most of the time it will this yummy sambar. This sambar is packed with full flavour, those radishes give this sambar a unique taste and aroma..

Baked Chicken Nuggets


Chicken Nuggets are my favorite. I have a fried version here, which I don't make often because I kind off stayed away from fried foods.. I wanted to make a baked version of these so I can enjoy it often. The one thing which turned off me these many days is I always thought that the chicken will turn dry when it is baked. But when I came across this recipe, I wanted to try it ASAP. I was quite surprised with the result. These nuggets turned so juicy and moist at the same time it was crispy. Hope you will try it someday.

Spaghetti Aglio e Olio / Spaghetti Aio Oio / Spaghetti with Olive Oil, Garlic & Red Chilli Flakes


I was quite surprised when i came across this recipe, because i always thought that pasta taste good when it is had with some strong sauces like tomato sauce or cheese sauce. But this recipe calls for only garlic, chilli and olive oil. So i decided to give it a try. Yesterday i was starving in hunger, so decided to try this because it takes only minutes to make. Frankly speaking the minute when the pasta is done the flavourful oil is done. Then you have to just toss the pasta in this and dig in straight away.

Layered Cherry Panna cotta

 
Panna cotta's are very new in my life. When i came across this, i wondered why i didn try it for these many days. Because i am fan of puddings.

Penne Pasta with Roasted Red Bell Pepper Sauce ( Indian Twist )



I crave for pasta very often..The cool thing about pasta is whatever you add is completely absorbed by those starchy pasta and makes it flavourful. Specially I love Penne Pasta because the hollowness in this pasta scoops up more sauce and each mouthful will just explode as you take a bite.

Fruit Cocktail Cake with Buttery Coconut Icing & Walnuts



Yesterday evening I experienced the best surprise in my life…My hubby gave me a gift which I have dreamt of..Want to know the gift, wait till tomorrow..Now back to the recipe..I had some leftover fruit cocktail after my trifle recipe..I wanted to try a cake with that, I know it will taste great in a cake so decided to go for it. I made a simple cake and topped it with a buttery coconut sauce..Actually the cake doesn't have any fat in it so that icing is rich and buttery which really makes it.

Trifle with Sponge Cake, Vanilla Custard and Fruit Cocktail


I love trifles, they are my absolute favorite..I have tried them in one of the bakery. They use a awesome sponge cake base which is filled with creamy custard and topped  with jelly. I took that theme and made it so simple…

I used awesome stuff of dreams, Fruit Cocktail. These are so versatile, they are fruit which is already chopped for you and sealed in a can, so you don’t have to worry about peeling, chopping any of those overly ripe fruits and make yourself messy..All you have to do is just open up a can.

Hawaiian Chicken Burger Recipe



I recently discovered that hawaii is famous for its pineapples..All their food has pineapples in it, starting from curries to rice... Specially their  burgers, it has pineapples. I was quite confused how chicken and pineapples go together, I mean, How a fruit can be added to a meat. But once I tried it, I was totally SURPRISED…Yes I highly recommend you to try this burger..This burger turned out to be super juicy one. I think its because of the Crushed Pineapple which we add in this makes it super moist and tender.
