I am a absolute shopping junkie, specially when it comes to kitchen stuffs and food products. I collect all sorts of stuffs and mount it in my kitchen. Certain stuffs in my kitchen are yet to be used. Hubby and I go food shopping together, we used to buy whole bunch of products when it is on sale. Yesterday when we are shopping we found extra virgin olive oil on deal, It is a buy one get one offer, Aha we found a awesome deal. Guess what we bought 4 bottle, each a liter capacity for around 25 dollars( 1400 Rs). It was such a amazing deal. Now I can cook lots of pastas and italian foods…

Frankly speaking I could never get a perfect recipe for frying sardine fish. I know frying fish is one of the simplest thing you could ever imagine. But each and everytime I make it, I find it is lacking something. Sometimes I find it very bland, sometimes it gets stuck to the pan and fall apart. But this was the time I got it perfect. The fish turned out perfectly cooked, and had full of flavour. Everything came together beautifully.

Few weeks back,hubby and I went to a restaurant named "VV Grand" in our place. It is a beautiful restaurant with a lovely atmosphere. We ordered this recipe over there and I was so impressed with that. It tasted so awesome and it was love at first sight. From that moment I know that I should try my hands on it. I am working on the restaurant review for that amazing restaurant. Will post that soon.

Andhra is known for spicy foods, so think about their style of making puliyogare and stuffs like that. When I got a glance of this recipe in one my friend's blog, I know I should definitely try it immediately. Believe it or not I made it the next day itself. The meal came together in less than 30 mins. I served it with papad and pickle.

Channa & Potatoes are such a lovely combination to cook with. They make awesome curries when cooked, because they both have the tendency to absorb the flavours which you add in. I already have a dry version of aloo channa in my blog, this is a gravy version of it which I make very often at home. You can serve this with roti, parotas or rice. Hope you will enjoy it.

You can place orders through this page with all the cakes & cookies which i supply with the price & details, but sadly i can supply only for the folks who live in my place (nagercoil) . But soon will take it to the next level. So please like my page & place your orders.

Hope you guys had a great weekend and are getting ready to enjoy your week. Mondays always seems to be a rush in my house, it is hard for me to get over from the weekend hangover and prepare for my week. Monday mornings are always a tough one, I can never think of making a breakfast, for those time pancakes are my saviour, because I can prepare the batter the night before and make some delicious pancakes on the mornings.

Halloween is getting near, and diwali too. But I have started cooking for halloween rather than for diwali. Actually there is no halloween here, we celebrate only diwali. Am I sounding weird. YES I DO. But actually speaking I love halloween, even though we don't celebrate here. I have watched how that day goes through televison and internet. And have admired that. So I thought of cooking for halloween, but definitely I will post more recipes for diwali in the coming days.

Sometimes when you are up against the stress, making a fish curry seams like pulling a mountain. Its all because of a simple coconut. You have to do lots of work to that, starting from crack opening the coconut,grate it, grind it, Oh man that is tons of work. So when you are in those period of time try out this simple tangy fish curry which uses only onions and tomatoes.

What do you want when you throw a party or a get together or just playing card games with your friends, you just need some good food and some good drinks to wash it up. I got lots of request to post finger food recipe in my blog. This is for them.
When you are having a good chat with your friends or playing in your own home, you just need something to eat which doesn't make a lot of mess like dripping and so on. You need something which doesn't need any cutlery to eat. So i came up with this yummy roll ups made with wheat tortilla, some grilled spicy paneer, some crunchy veggies. They are so healthy, you can put them in your kids lunch boxes or make it for parties too..

நேந்திரம் பழம் பாயசம் / Nendrapazham Pradhaman (Payasam) / Ripe Plantain Kheer- Onam Special Recipes
Amma used to give us steamed bananas when we were little. Whenever she makes puttu, she will add cut bananas along with the coconut inside the steamer and cook it. We used to fight for that steamed banana pieces. Specially the ripe plantain(a variety of banana) which gets more tasty when it is steamed. They are not only tasty but so healthy. I have heard that they mash up steamed banana and feed toddlers. This makes them chubby and healthy.
