Ven Pongal & Kathirikai Gotsu

Ven pongal is a popular south Indian breakfast recipe and a definite item in the menu for any Pongal celebration in South India.

Learn how to make Ven Pongal by following this simple receipe.   Pongal is made with raw rice, moong dal and seasoned with ginger, peppercorns, cumin seeds and cashewnuts. You can serve Ven Pongal with sambar and chutney or with Eggplant / Kathirikai gotsu(my amma and patti mostly used to do).  My hubby was asking me to prepare venpongal and gotsu for breakfast.  So here comes the receipe.

Poori or Puri Kizhangu / Poori or Puri Potato masala curry

Today I made Poori Kizhangu (masala potato) for lunch along with rasam, rice and potato (non masala curry).  My hubby's all time favourite.  I generally never used to do Poori kizhangau so frequently.  Since its holiday time and that too for this cold weather my hubby requested to do this and so here is the receipe.

So As I said, I started blogging my kitchen adventures to share with all of you :-))   Today I prepared this bisi bela for dinner.

The name Bisi bela bath is a Kannada phrase, which literally means "Hot Lentil Rice", as in Kannada, Bisi means hot, bela means Lentils and bath means a dish made of rice.

It is also known as Bisi bele huliyanna. The traditional preparation of this dish is quite elaborate and involves the use of spicy masala, thoor dal, and vegetables.

No more Away from blogging :-))

Its been very long since i have posted receipes in my food blog....The gap is over now :-)  Glad to be back here.  Dont forget to check with the receipes from tomorrow onwards.  :-)) My new resolution I would say (inspired by the movie "Julie & Julia").  Is there any condition that I need to start my resolution only by new year..I just cant wait to post my receipes(promise i'am not a good cook at all ). I always try other's receipes some number of times and I will get it usually by the third or fourth time(depending upon how fast i avoid lil lil mistakes while preparing the dish)
