Spanish Gazpacho

                                                                    I saw this new recipe in Food Food Channel i found it very intersting and yummy.You can call it a cold soup or a summer drink.It is very popular in the South of Spain.The original Gazpachos are made mainly with tomatoes,peppers,onions,garlic,cucumbers and few other vegetables pureed with vinegar,pepper,salt and chilled,but now there are lot of variations!!when i saw this recipe i liked it because you cannot feel the raw smell of the vegetables and the grapes makes it tasty and naturally sweet.

Corn Chaat/Salad

                                                       Corn is one of our favourite snack.I got introduced to butter corn when i used to live in Singapore they used to apply butter on the whole boiled corn and the aroma of corn used to spread throught the supermarket.Later we found butter corn,masala corn and even mexican flavoured corn selling every nook and corner of chennai and sure in most of the cities.
I love the butter corn and i feel it is a healthy snack inspite of a little butter in it.I love all the corn subzis and pulaos and the chinese dishes with corn kernels and the babycorn.
                                                        Coming to this simple corn salad or chaat it is a tasty and easy chaat to make.Even without the chutneys it tastes very good and gives the satisfaction of eating a chaat.I am trying out all these kinds of simple easy and healthy evening snack and this is the perfect one for those who love corn.My daughter really loves this one.....

Kaddu Ki Subzi/Pumpkin subzi

                                                      I have always wondered  if North Indians even  cooked Pumpkin because i have always seen them making subzis with potatoes,cauliflower,peas,radish and capsicum and sometimes the big brinjal.I have noticed the Gujarathis cooking some vegetables like sweet potato,raw banana cluster beans etc.I recently found some recipes with pumkin.
                                                      I have some extra ounce of pumkin from my neighbour's farm so i fisnhed making one round of sambar kootu etc now i thought let me try out something new for chapathis and when i was looking for recipes i found this one.It was simple and easy to make(my style)so immediately tried it out.It is a flavourful subzi with fenugreek seeds and tangy and sweet with jaggery and mango powder.
