Vegetables In Palak Gravy

                                                                   This is a different gravy i learnt from my husband's athai.She is an excellent cook.Instead of the usual tomato onion gravy i thought this was very different and more healthy.Let us see how i made this.

                                                                     Aadi masam is here and even before that Chennai is sizzling with sale and festivities.From this Tamil month of the year all the festivals begin.I always look into Meenakshi ammal's "samaithu paar" for any festival delicacies(recipes).
                                                 I decided to make Thengai pal payasam which is important for "Aadi pandigai".They usually invite the newly weds to the house and make this payasam for the Son in law and give the couple new clothes and goodies.

Brinjal curry

Brinjal is not a favorite vegetable for many children.I hated it too as a kid .Later when I started cooking and experimenting on food I realised i was avoiding so many vegetables and left with not many choices.
Then i started trying out vegetables like bitter gourd and brinjal and many more.
This Brijal curry is a yummy one with Onions.It tastes great with rice and ghee that you don't even need a sambar(south Indian gravy)to go with it.
