Lemon-Lime Rice

How to make Lemon-Lime Rice

         The Lemon Rice as we know it has taken a turn for the better in this Bold & Tangy Lemon-Lime Rice!! I have been making my Lemon rice this way as my family likes its bold flavor. I prefer not to use Basmati rice, as the flavor of Basmati doesn't compliment this dish.

         This is excellent for picnics, travel, lunch boxes and Valaikkappu (Indian Baby Shower). I bet the pregnant ladies would love this tangy rice. It can be served with Potato fry / pickles / chips or pappad.

Oreo Milk Shake

How to make Oreo Milk Shake

            The first time I ever saw Oreo's in this wonderful land of opportunity, I wasn't ready to try it, under the presumption that it was the bitter kind of chocolate. I was so naive; I had no clue as to, what I was missing. I am thankful to my son - for giving me the positive reviews & making me try this amazing cookie. If you need a crowd pleaser for a gathering, you should give this recipe a try. I always get 'Two Thumbs Up' from all the kids for whom, I have whipped up this drink plus, it makes a filling snack as well. I have had kids come up to me & ask for the recipe too :)

Special Dal with vegetables

How to make Special Dal (with Ridge Gourd)

                I like to add vegetables in my dal, so i can sneak in atleast one more serving of vegetables during dinner/lunch. You can omit the vegetable altogether or substitute the Ridge Gourd (Peerkangai) with any other vegetable of your choice. Vegetables with a high water content works well for this dal, ex: Bottle Gourd (Sorakkai), Chayote Squash (Chow-Chow or Bangalore Brinjal),Spinach or other greens. As a plus, you can also use the peel/skin of the Ridge Gourd to make a yummy Chutney/Thuvayal.

How to make Vendakai Poriyal

           Okra or Bhindi (in Hindi) as we know it, has been my most favorite vegetable since childhood; not because of its qualities but because of how my mom used to make it for us. If you are thinking of Okra as a slimy vegetable, you will have to try this recipe & it will change the way you think of it.

Pudalangai Poriyal /Snake Gourd Curry

How to make Pudalangai Poriyal/Snake gourd Curry

              The Snake Gourd (Pudalangai in Tamil) was not on my favorites list until I tasted a variation of this vegetable at my friends (Ms.U) place. That reminds me, I should try to get that recipe from her. If you or anyone in your family is like most of us, then you should definitely try this recipe. This is a very easy & tasty recipe which needs just a few simple ingredients.
