Mushroom And Peas Curry

          Today's dish is another curry, mushrooms and peas go very well together, I have already posted a kurma and a rice with this combination. In this curry, I have used a paste with fried tomatoes and onions, this gives the gravy for the dish and a nice flavor and color to the curry. It's a simple curry, other than the time taken to roast and grind the paste, it takes very less time as the mushrooms and peas get cooked fast and it goes very well with both rice and rotis..

Potato Stuffed Pavakkai ( Bitter Gourd, Karela )

          Not many people like bitter gourd, but I know people who really love it too, my family lies in between, as long as I make something with it which doesn't taste very bitter, they will have it. Today's dish is again my friend's recipe, I loved it, the first time I tasted it, before this dish, I've never seen baby bitter gourds which are slightly bigger ( the size of a lemon ), I have used only the very small ones ( you can check out the recipe here ). I think, this variety is available in Bangalore and cities in Tamilnadu that are closer to Bangalore. Anyway, coming to the recipe, we stuff the bitter gourds with a potato filling and deep fry them, of course, I agree this is not the healthy way of eating this vegetable, but you can make this as special dish for an occasion. They came out so crispy and delicious, would go very well with rice and dal or sambar saadam, but it tasted it so good, I can have this as an appetizer too..

Blueberry And Cream Cheese Muffins

          I can't believe, it's now 3 years since I started this blog, I just did it like that, though I was a regular visitor to many blogs, I never thought that I would start a blog some day. Now, this blog has become a part of my life, I am trying to be as regular as possible, in posting, visiting other blogs and also trying to present the dishes as best as I could. The comments and encouragement from my fellow bloggers and friends is my inspiration which drives me to keep doing this, I should thank you all for that. I would have loved to share a delicious multi-layered cake today, but I am a little lazy when it comes to frosting and cake decoration, so at least I thought, I shall do something sweet for today. These Blueberry And Cream Cheese Muffins are absolutely delicious, at the same time are very easy to make too and they are eggless and butterless, can have them for breakfast or as an evening snack along with your tea or coffee..

Potato Dishes

          The potato is a very versatile vegetable and is liked by most of us, be it kids or adults, very few people do not like this vegetable. Curries made out of it, either a dry, semi-dry or gravy go very well with both rice and rotis/flat breads, we can even use them in sandwiches, they are used as a stuffing for flat breads, along with other vegetables in rice varieties and also in desserts ( I have to still try them out in sweets ). I have a large collection of potato dishes, so thought of compiling them together and putting them under categories, so that it'll be easy to browse through them. In most of the dishes the potato is the main ingredient or it's used in combination with another vegetable..
