Flavored Brown Rice

Vangibath Powder

During the 7 day marathon, Harini’s theme was rice varieties and she used vangibath powder in 2 or 3 rice varieties that she prepared. Couple of other bloggers also used it in their rice dish. I was surprised to see the versatility of the powder. Vangibath is a rice preparation made with brinjals or eggplant […]

Day 5 – Sweet Corn Pakoda ~ Sweet Corn Fritters

Couple of years ago when I was in India, I visited an aunt. Her maid or helper in the kitchen made yummy pakodas and she kept on asking us how it tasted over and over again. We thought that was a little strange. My aunt then told us the reason. She, the helper saw these […]

Poor athamma (aunt) does all the cutting, sautéing, clean up after the cooking and mamayya gets […]

Day 3 – Fish Cutlet

Day 2 – Mushroom Bruschetta and Sandwich

I wanted to make bruschetta with a french baguette.  It was extremely cold yesterday and could not get myself to walk down to the store to pick up a loaf.  So, I used regular sandwich bread that I had in my pantry.   Since I used regular bread, I was in a dilemma weather to name […]
