Bottle Gourd Tomato Gravy ~ Sorakaya Shorva

Today is the last day of this marathon and I decided to post a shorva recipe.  As I mentioned couple of days ago, I was undecided about today’s curry.  I was debating on what to post until 3-4 of hours ago.  We had gone out of town this weekend and got back this evening.  We […]

Mushrooms Fry

Mushrooms are one of my favorite vegetables.  Unfortunately, husband (Mr.U)  is not as enthusiastic about this vegetable as I am.  He would not mind eating it once in a while, once 3-6 months and he prefers dry mushroom curry to gravy mushroom curry.   Just like okra, when cooked, mushrooms shrink in size and yield very […]

Omelet Curry

My theme for this marathon is curry in a hurry under 30 minutes. Whenever I am pressed for time, tomato shorva and eggs come to my rescue. In my house, especially for men, a morsel of food would not go down the throat with out meats, poultry, seafood or eggs and the men folk would […]

Butternut Squash Curry

Yesterday afternoon, I was going thru my refrigerator to see what I could have for lunch and I had only mango dal. I knew I did not have many veggies in my crisper and was going thru my freezer to see if I had any vegetables I could use up to make a subzi. Then […]

Fenugreek Green Beans Stir Fry

Couple of weeks ago, when Srivalli announced blogging marathon # 5, I was visiting my sister-in-law in California. She has a nice cookbooks collection and once I decided to take part in the marathon, I went through her (SIL) cook book collection for some recipe ideas. Fenugreek green beans stir fry caught my eye. The […]

When growing up, one of my cousin’s visited us frequently during holidays. Whenever she visited us, she made it a point to go and meet her paternal cousin V, during her stay with us. Her cousin is lot older than us and her children are our age. She is a bubbly lady, always smiling and […]
