Its a real pleasure getting a "satisfied" feedback while they come back from school..

Mangalore Fish Curry


Once when I tasted a Manglorean fish curry from our neighbour, I didn't like the taste. She added only little tamarind and that was incompatible with our taste buds.. :) Things have been changed when the amount of tamarind increased, now it has been one of the favourites.. ! Ingredients needed, fish fillets 6 medium size Used king fish. small onions 8 tomato 1 big garlic cloves 4 red chillies (image)

Egg Puri


My blog turns 5 on this Newyear's Eve. Alhamdulillah.. Thanks to my readers, friends and relatives who supported me all these years..I have nothing special to give you all on this special occasion. My niece was asking mom to make this puri when she saw it in a kid's magazine. Soon I a took some pics with my mobile when she prepared.. :) The recipe was for moms, to make it for their kids. I hope (image)

Kanji Vellam Halwa / Rice Soup Halwa


I have been seeing the neglected comments and unanswered queries here since few days... please bear with me, I have a big reason for that.. A great loss in my life, my uppa (father) left us.. I don't know what to write here and was trying to hide.. But I love this little space in net and that took me back.. I would cook nothing special nowadays and this one was in the draft.. This is mom's (image)

Broccoli Egg Dry Fry


Normally steaming is the best option to consume broccoli in a healthy way, stir-frying also helps.. Experimenting on whatever ingredient you cook may bring out nice results, some times.. This simple dish was born once when I got bored of our ordinary veg curries. Serve this with rice or roti, your kids may let you fill their lunch box with this... :)Ingredients,broccoli 1 mediumegg 1onion 1ginger(image)

Homemade Chocolate Brownies


As most of you know I’m not that fond of baking, but I love to treat myself at the bakery once in a while. However, some baking recipes can be so easy that you really don’t need to be a top chef with restaurant insurance to make them, and they are also crowd pleasing. One of these is homemade chocolate brownies, which can be nicer than bought in the shop as you get the delicious smell around your(image)

Thalassery Chicken Biryani


While writing this post I thought about a song, which we used to sing in the childhood.. biryani vekkalalla perunnalu... :) Yeah, that is true, but I was waiting to give you all my special Eid gift, this Thalassery Biryani. This one is easy to prepare, not much worries about the cooking time of rice, but the amount of ghee used is much higher than the other biryani recipes I have posted here. (image)

Macaroni Payasam / Kheer


Was very busy since few days, thats why couldn't meet you all... And this is the blessed month,so there are many things to do, hope you all are busy with prayers and reciting Quran.. Did any one of you invited few for iftar? I love to do but this time haven't done much... :) Here you have a simple macaroni / pasta kheer from me, it will be a great addition to the iftar party insha Allah, try out(image)

Spicy Brinjal Curry


You might have heard a lot about BT Brinjal from the various news sources. Nowadays nothing much is heard about it, it seems that all the commotions have died down and people started forgetting the issue. Bt brinjals are really very much dangerous to our health, it can destroy our internal organs. How could we make sure such crops are not reaching us.. Recently read some where the issue is only(image)

Stuffed Buns


Am not much fond of baking. I don't feel it as easy as the normal stove top cooking. Here is the stuffed bun recipe that I tried out recently.I think the bun was not much good as the one we get from the bakeries. Didn't have much patience to wait until I get a good result. I used the beef masala mixture for stuffing buns, that can be used as samosa filling. Anyway this would be an healthier (image)

Spring Onion Soup


H was very excited to talk about the person who is managing a vegetable garden in Fujairah. He is an engineer from Holland, lucky enough to grow vegetables for own use.We too were lucky to get a bag of veggies from there! :) Lots of mint leaves, cabbage, carrots, onions and spring onions were there in the collection, and I was thinking what to do with this much of spring onions. There was a (image)

Paneer Makhani / Butter Paneer Masala


I had no hope that my kids will eat paneer before making this dish. I didn't like paneer and so wouldn't buy it. When we were kids (me, sis and bro) mom had made paneer at home as per the instructions published in the news paper cooking column. I still remember that paneer preparation appeared under the title "paalirachi" (milk-meat) !.. :) At that time, we had a cow and therefore plenty of milk(image)

Prawn Pulav / Shrimp Pilaf


Eating vegetables is a hard task for my kids.. :) My son wouldn't have lunch if I give him ordinary rice and veg curries. He comes back home tired, it made me worried every time. So I started giving rice dishes, especially Arabic rice, or vegetable or egg biryani or prawns pulavu etc. Preparing this simple form of biryani is really easy and no worry at all! Now before leaving to school, he checks(image)

Beaten Rice With Jaggery And Coconut / Aval Nanachathu


My son is often confused of the words,aval (beaten rice), avial and avoli (pomphret).I had to find out the english words for many malayalam things to make him satisfied.That is an interesting 'advantage' I got after spending few years in Dubai. Some times I felt difficult to find an appropriate word for the things what the children asked. My D thought the dry leaf of coconut tree is a 'big quill'(image)

Mutton Rogan Josh / Kashmiri Mutton Curry


You may be confused if you are searching for a rogan josh recipe in the net. The ingredients vary in each recipe, some use onions and tomatoes, some omit it , and some add garlic and others do not.. Even within the Kashmir itself , the recipes vary according to regions and traditions. (read it here) I added little onion to satisfy my self, but omitted tomato completely. I didn't get the (image)

Turkish Eggplant Pilaf / Patlicanli Pilav


Eggplant / aubergine has an important role in Turkish Cusine. You can find various Turkish dishes prepared with eggplants. This one is similar to the brinjal rice recipe from Middle Eastern Cuisine, that I had posted long back.Ingredients,eggplants 3 mediumonion 1tomato 1 bigcinnamon 1 " sticklong grain rice / basmati rice 2 cupscoriander leaves chopped 1 Tbspmint leaves chopped 1 tsppepper (image)

Pineapple Coconut Delight / Cardamom Flavoured Pineapple Coconut Drink


A few of you may remember the famous "Pina colada " while seeing this.. This one has no connection with that, it's a Keralite naadan drink prepared using some sweet pineapple chunks and little coconut! This is completely home made, those lovely pineapple collected from the backyard and of-course coconut too.. I added some cardamoms and the outcome was a delicious lovely drink! Am sure you are (image)

Andhra Chicken Fry


I hadn't got a chance to taste Andhra chicken fry before, so am not sure about the look and taste of this dish.. :) I was happy when I tried this recipe, my family enjoyed it. I think this should be little more colorful.. Any way it reminded me of the "chicken chukka"that we would buy from the restaurant near by our residence in Dubai.Ingredients,chicken 500 gonion 2garlic paste 2 tspginger paste(image)
