Broccoli Rice Using Maggie Noodles Masala

Broccoli is one of the healthy veggie which is high in Vitamin C and Fiber. Earlier it was a very expensive veggie and used to find only in super markets but nowadays, even small veggie shops has such type of healthy n unique veggies. Lots of delicious recipes can be prepared using Broccoli like Rice, curries, soups and parathas etc.

 Broccoli Rice is one of the easy and healthy recipe which can be prepared using leftover rice and no extra spices required for this recipe. Just a small packet of leftover maggie Noodles masala will enhance the flavor of the rice and gives unique taste. Adding lemon juice is to balance the taste and flavor. I have used maggie masala but any noodles masala can be used for this rice. Perfect Lunch box menu and can be served with Tomato sauce, chilli sauce or any Raita.

Sankara Meen Kuzhambu / Red Snapper Fish Curry

Tangy and aromatic flavor of the curry along with a delicious taste of fish, when served with hot rice gives a joyous feeling for a FISH LOVER like me ;) This four letter word makes me drool any time and love it in any form of cuisine.
Generally Meen Kuzhambu is served with hot rice but it tastes more delicious and yummy when served with Hot steaming Idlis for the next day. The more the time, fish swims in the curry, the taste increases. Flavor of the Fish gets blend well with the curry and enhances the taste and aroma, when served it for the next day. 
Sankara fish has its unique taste and flavor and personally, I feel it gives delicious taste when prepared as kuzhambu than fry. Even few Restaurants started serving "Nethi Vacha meen Kuzhambu and Idli" in their menu.  

Are you a Fish Lover ?? Then get ready to Drool ;)

Ekadesi Kali

Happy Ekadesi Friends!

Vaikunta Ekadesi  is celebrated every year in the month of December or January and particularly on the 11th waxing moon that falls in the Margazhi month. Early morning of this day “the gate to Lord Vishnu 's inner Sanctum” is opened and in tamil we used to call it as “sorga vassal”. And according to our family culture, we used to fast on this  particular day by taking only tiffin items ( No rice allowed). Along with that, Kali is made as offering for god. And the next day of ekadesi is called as Dhuvadesi, on which fast is broken with the preparation of rice and curry with 21 vegetables. My mom prepares karakuzhambu with 21 veggies and according to my in laws place we prepare sambhar with 21 veggies.
