Ribbon Pakoda

                                                               Ribbon/Nada/Tape Pakoda as it is called in different names because of its lengthy ribbon-like shape.It is a spicy type of  Thenkuzhal, made during diwali in most of the South Indian homes.It is very easy to make that it can be made anytime of the year.It tastes great with a cup of coffee that you will not be able to resist especially on a rainy day.
I always look for Meenakshi amma's cook book for my traditional recipes.I just followed her recipe in "Samaithu Par". Since I made it during a regular but rainy day, I just added crushed garlic for the flavour which is purely optional.

Vegetable Jalfrezi

                                                                   Vegetable Jalfrezi is a North Indian  Dry Curry(stir fry).It is a very colourful and simple subzi that goes well with all the Indian Breads.Since it is a dry one it is always followed by some kind of simple dal in my house.
The one thing special about this curry is you add pounded fresh coriander seeds to the subzi.It gives a great aroma and taste to the vegetables.
