Mor Kuzhambu is one of the easiest and quickest gravy which can be made in jiffy time,apt for lazy days when we feel bored of cooking heavy items.You can make this gravy with any of these vegetables lady's fingerfinger,pumkin,cucmber,poosanikai,etc to it.Each one has it own taste & flavor.Everyone have their own version of making mor kuzhambu this is mine.I usually make it without coconut only.
After starting my baking with yeast I decided what not make a vegetable pizza first and tried this.I want it to be more indianised and made many changes,got some idea from here.You can change the toppings as your wish,it can be anything veg or non veg.I have decided to make a chicken version of it and will let you know once it turn out good.
As I have said earlier in my posts apart from white rice I use other cereals to make dosai,pongal.You can see many such pongals like oats pongal,wheat pongal,ragi dosai,thinnai dosai,etc.Try to use these cereals more in your food at least twice a week.This time I made kambu pongal and it was excellent.I made it in my rice cooker,you can even make it with your ordinary cooker.
Try this and let me know.
This besan ladoo by microwaved method I tried from Homely food blog of meena.First I thought how its going to be & will my kids like it,to say the truth my daughter who hates sweet dishes liked it very much and ate few ladoos,i always like sweets very much.It tasted awesome.Its very very easy as it by microwave means.

As I have said earlier I love to try baking & baked products,i want try out something with fondant.so searched,searched for it got some idea,making fondant with gelatin was little bit difficult it says for a beginner,but with marshmallow its quite easy.Then searched for marshmallow recipe,many was this corn syrup,but I think we don't get it here at last got recipe without corn syrup,gathered things for it & made it.
My main idea is to make fondant only but as my daughter as I have decided to make some marshmallow ice creams too with it,i will let u know about the recipes & post it when I make.Now lets see about the basic marshmallow making now.
As i have mentioned earlier i love to bake more,i never thought one day i would try a bun/bread at home and it will come success.First i thank God almighty for giving me the courage& wisdom to do so,secondly i thank all co-bloggers post about it,their step by step procedure,tips all helped me.
Also for this month egg less baking challenge,Gayathiri has announced to bake dinner rolls,first i thought how i am going to do it,baking a bread.bun would be a disaster.Then decided first lets try a bun and then confidently try other dinner rolls.Coming to the recipe i tried this from Raks Kitchen and the result was absolutely wonderful.When i checked for the yeast ,water become forthy then i was little confident that the buns would come good.
I am not a brownie person but seeing so many brownies in other blogs I too want to try it and taste.First I decided to make a easy one ,this recipe is no bake one and any one can it very easily.I got the recipe here.You can alter it by adding any nuts of ur choice.
As I have said earlier I love gardening,but no way for me in apartments,but I try to do some planting here.This leaves too I grow in my apartments.I pray that in future I must have an individual house so that I can have my own garden.
This methi leaves is rich in antioxidant,iron and good source of fibre,its diabetic friendly too.Try to use it once a week.If you don't get this leaves ,try to sow some methi seeds in any container ,it will surely grow.
When I write this post I do remember when I was small my granny use to mix curd with mathu and take the butter from it.After seeing many blogs I decided to take butter and to say for this I was collecting milk malai(aadai) for past 5 months.It came a medium sized container but the butter I got was just the quantity here.
Karuvepillai known as curry leaves plays a main role in south Indian cooking.It is rich in nutrients and has unique aroma & taste.Its a iron packed leaves and it prevent the hair from greying.In a TV show I heard a person saying ,a person from type2 diabetic heredity if eats this leaf in morning empty stomach,he may in future has very less chance to get diabetic.Try use this leaves more in ur cooking,for kids grind it in some means & give them.
When coming to breakfast one has to intake good & healthy of it to start a day.I usually replace white rice with other cereals ,you can see variety of dosa like that in my blog,pearlmillet,horse gram,oats,thinnai.Do try to replace white rice with some other gluten free,less fat one.Coming to this recipe quite easy to make,if u prefer u can use without fermentation also,here I have used fermentated one.Raisins as you know has more health benfits,my kids if u add it in any food they would take out,but in this chutney/dip method they like it most,try to give children raisins.I learnt that it prevent cancer cell formation,so use it.
