Rasam ~ Chaaru

Rasam or Chaaru is one of my favorite Indian Soups.  Chaaru is usually served with rice and is a perfect comfort food in cold, winter weathers.  I for one, don’t mind eating it anytime of the year!  I am so fond of chaaru that when growing up, whenever I visited my aunt, she would prepare […]

Kheema Palak ~ Ground Meat & Spinach Fry

Spinach is one of very few vegetables that we both like and I cook it at least once a week.  I usually stir fry spinach, just like the green chard fry that I blogged about a while back.  Sometimes, I also make  spinach raita.  But the last time I cooked spinach, I added some kheema […]

Rasam Powder

When I started blogging couple of years ago, everyone in the food blogoshpere talked about Pedatha’s Cookbook.  That was the first time I heard about the book.  Since everyone was talking about it, I went a head and bought myself a copy of Cooking at Home with Pedatha.   This book is a collection of […]

Brinjal Raita

Couple of years ago when my cousins visited us, their acquaintance  invited us for dinner.    It was a delicious dinner and on the menu was brinjal raita.  It was outrageously delicious!  It was the first time I ever tasted it and was awesome.  Ever since, I wanted to try it and unfortunately I did […]
