After series of Fish recipes, here comes a flavourful and aromatic kuzhambu prepared using Seer Fish. Seer fish is also called as King Fish which is popularly known as Vanjaram in Tamil, Ney Meen in Malayalam and Vanjiram in Telugu. Apart from kuzhambu, these slices are perfect for fish masala fry or tawa fry. In this recipe, I have used freshly ground masala using fresh curry leaves and pepper corns which enhances the flavour and gives a lovely aroma. Adding coconut milk gives an excellent taste to the kuzhambu and also it is optional. This kuzhambu goes perfect with hot plain rice or Idly or Dosa. Especially, one day prior kuzhambu gives a lovely flavour and pairs up excellent with hot and fluffy idlis. Nothing can beat the taste of this combo and its so heavenly.

Jeera Ajwaini Aloo

Jeera Ajwani Aloo is a tasty and flavourful side dish to serve with Roti and Rice. Usually in most of the houses, either cumin/jeera or ajwani seeds / carom is used as tadka for side dish, but I learnt this simple yet flavourful recipe from one of my co-blogger Jolly Makker's page. I had bookmarked this recipe long back and waiting for the right time to prepare. Luckily for the Recipe Swap Challenge event, I was paired with Jolly Makker who blogs at jollyhomemaderecipes.com. Recipe swap challenge is an interesting event hosted by two the lovely bloggers Vidya Narayan and Jolly Makkar. The concept of the theme was to recreate the recipe from our partner's webpage.


So here is the delicious potato recipe from my partner Jolly's page. The potato tasted so delicious and the addition of ajwain gave a refreshing taste to the dish. Thanks Jolly for posting such a delicious recipe on your page.

Ingredients :

3 Potatoes, Cut into desired shape 
1 1/2 Tbsp Oil 
2 Tsp Cumin seeds / Jeera 

Garlic Knots

After April month swap post "Hong Kong Noodle Soup", here comes my second month participation in an interesting event Food Bloggers Recipe Swap hosted by Amber Dawn. For May month, I was paired with an amazing blogger Sapana who blogs at cookingwithsapana.com. The concept of the theme was to select one recipe from my partner's page and recreate the recipe. It took so much time for me to choose one recipe from her page while all her recipes looked so inviting and tempting. Finally tried these beautiful baked garlic knots which was a super hit in my place. These garlic knots are perfect with hot tea and also, can be served as breakfast along with salsa, jam or sauce. The actual recipe calls for the parsley, but I have replaced it with coriander leaves in garlic butter. Thank you Sapana for sharing such a delicious baked snack.

Aloo Palda / Himachali Cuisine

Aloo palda is a pahari style potato curry cooked along with the spices and yogurt. This creamy and delicious curry pairs perfectly with hot plain rice or Roti. Though the actual recipe included more amount of Elachi, I have reduced and made changes according to my family's taste bud. This recipe goes to my favourite event "shhh cooking secretly challenge" which is happening among a group of bloggers. Click HERE to get the detailed information and recipes which I had posted so far for the event. When we got the theme for May month as Himachali cuisine, Aloo palda was my first thought and luckily got the same secret ingredients ( Yogurt and Aloo ) from my partner Vidya Narayan. Vidya is an amazing blogger who blogs at masalachilli.wordpress.com and have to mention that I am a huge fan of her writing. Her writing gives a lively feel while reading her post which is truly a great talent. And also, her page is loaded with many more delicious and inviting recipes. Don't mi…

Bajra Khichdi / Pearl Millet Khichdi / Hariyanvi Recipes

When we got the theme as Hariyanvi cuisine in our Shhh Cooking Secretly Challenge group, the first recipe which flashed on my mind was Bajra Khichdi as it is a traditional food in Haryana. Bajra which is also known as Pearl Millet in English is a variety of millet. It is rich in fibre and also has few important minerals like magnesium, iron and phosphorous. Since bajra takes time to cook, soak it for 5 - 6 hours or overnight which ease the cooking process. This khichdi is quite easy to prepare and also, does not require any over dosage of masala ingredients and vegetables. Innovation can also be done based on our taste bud and nutritious factor by including vegetables like peas, potatoes etc.

For the April month, I was paired with an amazing blogger Sujata Roy who blogs at batterupwithsujata.wordpress.com. She have a wonderful page in which loads of healthy, traditional and regional cuisines are there. Don't forget to visit her page to check out all her delicious recipes. Bajra a…

Hong Kong Noodle Soup

This is my first time participating in an interesting event happening among food bloggers called Food Bloggers Recipe Swap. The concept of the group is that we have to recreate recipe from our co-blogger to whom we got paired with. This month I was paired with an amazing blogger as well as a trained Chef Mireille who blogs at www.theschizochef.com. I was truly amazed with the varieties of cuisine and recipe in her page. I have almost checked all her recipes from Recipe index and got into a confusion of which one to try. Even I had bookmarked few recipes to try them in the future. Such an amazing space and must visit page. While browsing her page for a recipe , my little one happened to see her delicious Hong Kong Noodles and got tempted as he love soupy noodles a lot. In addition, the word Hong Kong fascinated him as it was his first international trip. All the more reason for him to be back of me to prepare this Hong Kong Noodle Soup. As a mother, I fulfilled his cute request and he…
