Ivy Gourd - Potato & Egg Stir Fry

This tasty, healthy and less spicy stir fry is an excellent option for kids lunchbox menu as it contains kids favourite potato along with a healthy ivy gourd and egg. The addition of peanuts gives a crunchy taste to the stir fry and also gives a delicious taste when eaten with veggies. I have used only green chillies for the spicy taste which can also be replaced with red chilli powder or extra chillies to adjust according to the taste bud. This stir fry goes well with any varieties of rice and personally, I served with lemon rice.

Ingredients :

12 Ivy Gourd, chopped or sliced into small diagonal pieces
2 Potatoes, chopped into cubes or diagonal pieces
2 Eggs 
1 Tbsp Oil 
1/2 Tsp Jeera / Cumin seeds
2 Tbsp Groundnuts / Peanuts 
2 Springs of Curry leaves 
3 Green chillies, Finely chopped ( Adjust according to taste bud ) 
Less than 1/4 Tsp Turmeric powder
Salt to taste 

Method :

Heat oil in a pan and add cumin seeds followed by peanuts, finely chopped green chillies, turmeric powder and curry leaves.

Add the potato pieces and saute it together for a minute.

Add 2 Tbsp water and cook it till the potatoes gets half cooked in a medium flame.

Now add the ivy gourd pieces along with the required amount of salt and 2 tbsp of water.

Cook it again in the low flame till the veggies gets cooked.

Meanwhile, break the eggs in a small bowl and slightly beat it using fork.

Move the veggies to one side of the pan and add the eggs.

Scramble it for a minute and combine it along with the veggies.

Adjust salt and cook it for another couple of minutes or till the stir fry becomes dry.

Once done, remove from the flame and serve hot.

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.
