Vegetable Seekh Kebab/Kabab

                                                               Seekh Kababs or Kebabs are usually made with minced meat and spices but this is a vegetarian Kebab made with mashed vegetables,spices and cashew nut powder and cooked in the similar way.If you have a Tandoor you can surely make it in that,otherwise you can bake it in the oven or grill it or you can simple toast it on a hot tawa.It is served with sliced onions lime juice and mint chutney with curd.All of us love Vegetable seekh Kebab and whenever we go out for dinner to a North Indian restaurant or Kebab place this kebab is our first choice!!!

Drumstick Soup/Murungakkai Soup

                                                                  I have been looking for iron rich recipes these days and in the process found this soup.I have tasted a light version of this soup in some restaurants but never tried it.I decided to make this today and going through a lot of recipes on various blogs.Ultimately i made my own version of it.While picking drumsticks for a soup let them be little thick and pulpy.

Guacomole/Avacado dip

                                                   Guacomole is a dip made from  ripened avacaodo.It originated in mexico.It is a very simple,healthy and non cheesy recipe with few ingredients.
I was not very familiar with avacado but as my kids are growing up i have to keep innovating new recipes.
You choose a ripened avacado by pressing the fruit and if it is a little soft on the outside and which has a dark colour skin that is when it is rightly ripened.

Fajeto/Mango Khadi

                                                                 I came to know of this mango khadi very recently.Even in gujarthi and rajasthani restaurants i have only tasted normal khadi.I saw it recently in a blog and i love mangoes so tried it immediately.It tasted yumm and it is even better than the normal khadi.It will go excellently well with palak roti and masala theplas.Last it tastes great with rice and ghee.

Carrot and Beans Curry/Poriyal

Carrot and beans curry(as we call it)poriyal is one of our favourites.I like it for its colour and taste.My mother used to make only beans curry with sambar and other spicy gravies but one of my friend told me to combine carrots along with it which is more healthy,tasty and colorful.It goes well with sambar and vathakuzhambu.I like to add  half a spoon of sugar when the gravy is a little spicy.
