                                                                This is a kind of Vathakozhambu or some call it the Venthaya kozhambu with appalam.I had never heard about it until i got married.Instead of the vegetable we use broken appalam fried in gingelly oil along with mustard seeds,tur dhal and red chillies and most importantly some fenugreek seeds and then cooked in tamarind water and the powders.

Dhal fry and Vegetable Kohlapuri

                                                         I decided to try something different today so looked for recipes in Tarla dala's book and looked at Maharashtrian Recipes and decided on Vegetable kohlapuri.The ingredients were different slightly so decided to make a dhal fry along with it in case the kids do not like it(it was a back up).Let me give you the Recipe for both.

                                                                This upma is a welcome change for south Indians eating rotis everyday for health reasons.It is quiet similar to rawa upma (except that you don't need to roast the rawa in the begining)just that it  has lot of vegetables and it is very  helathy!!!!!!You can refer to rawa upma for stpewise pictures

Vegetable au gratin

                                                               Once in a while i try different recipes like this.Au gratin is a french dish.Of course i have modified it a little.I have combined vegetables with macaroni in white sauce and baked it with cheese.It is a side dish usually served with garlic bread.
