Advanced Gokulashtami/Krishna Jeyanthi wishes to all my dear readers. Hope everyone is busy preparing the snacks for tomorrow's festival.  To add on to my already existing Special recipes for Krishna Jeyanthi, I am sharing the recipe of Vella Seedai today. Last Friday I managed to try this vella seedai after sending Happy to school. Though it was not very much appealing like the Uppu seedai, it tasted so good. I reserved it for Happy's after school snack and I had a feeling that she will not try any. However, to my surprise, she started eating and liked it very much. She gulped almost half of the below-presented bowl in one go 😛 and I am very happy. Let us move on to the recipe:

Eggless Wheat Flour Banana Muffin Recipe | Wheat Banana Chocolate Chip Muffin | Banana Muffin | Eggless Wheat Banana Muffin

I don't prefer cakes with so much of icing and I like mildly sweet plain cakes. Also, I  love banana flavoured bread, cake and muffin. For one of the Christmas during my college days, Paneer Anna brought a banana cake from a far away bakery. That is the first time, I tasted a banana cake and it tastes so delicious. Paneer Anna drives our car in native and he is a very close family friend. Hence, whenever I visit native, he will try to bring me that cake. After I started baking, I had tried Eggless Banana Walnut Muffin and Banana Bread. I was thinking about trying some whole wheat cake recipes when my sister in- law started asking about it. To my rescue Hari Chandana posted this recipe on her Instagram and I bookmarked the recipe.
In Happy's school, teachers involve kids in some kinds of cooking or baking once in a week. She loves that very much and after seeing that interest, I involve her whenever I make play dough. Recently, she was asking me to make a cake along with her. Since I was very busy arranging the new house, I couldn't bake any. Finally, two days back I tried this recipe along with Happy and it came out very well. She was very excited about the outcome and she wanted to eat one soon after it is out of the oven. She told it is very tasty and here I am with the recipe:

Kadachakka Bajji Recipe | Breadfruit Bajji | Cheema Chakka Bajji | How to prepare Breadfruit Bajji

We were moving to another suburb in Sydney and I was completely occupied. Hence, you could not see any new posts from me. Now, we have settled in the new house and I hope to continue blogging. Today I am sharing a recipe of Kadachakka and it is one of the favourites from my native. Jany's house has Kadachakka tree in their backyard and my mom-inlaw makes yummy thoran with that.  I have already posted her recipe of Kadachakka thoran. During my recent India trip, we visited Jany's aunt and she served us this bhaji. It was so tasty and I asked her the recipe immediately. After I returned to Sydney, I saw breadfruit quite a few times in Udhaya. It really tempted me to buy and I bought one. I prepared bajji with half and chips with the remaining.

Mango Lassi Recipe | How to make Mango Lassi | Mango Recipes

I am back to the blog after a long time and the break was not intentional. I was a bit occupied with my personal things and I was really lazy to post something here. When people started to ask about my absence from the blog, I realised the long break. I sincerely thank each one of you who personally messaged, emailed and rang me to ask about the break. Hope everyone in India is relishing the delicious and juicy mangoes. In my part of the world (Sydney), we are entering the winter season and mangoes are not in season. In Australia, we get mangoes in December.  However, I have few mango recipes in drafts from the last season and I thought of posting it now. Let us move on to the recipe.

Radish Sambhar Recipe | Mullangi Sambhar | Sambhar Recipe for Rice

Jany loves Sambhar very much and especially he likes the Capsicum Sambhar. I always try to explore different sambhar recipes. Once my friend, Florence was sharing her lunch scene with radish sambhar. It reminded my hostel days and I almost forgot this sambhar until I saw her photo. I was very much tempted to try it and I was waiting for the availability of white radish in the market. However, I was able to find only the pink radish and I end up making with it. There is no compromise in the taste and it turned out super yummy. Check out my other sambhar varieties like Mixed vegetable sambhar, tiffin sambhar and varutharacha sambhar too. Let us move on to the recipe:

Pineapple Kesari Recipe | Pineapple Rava Kesari | Pineapple Sheera | Pineapple Kesari Bath

Happy Vishu and Happy Tamil New Year to everyone out there. Hope you all are enjoying the long weekend. I have not prepared any special items to celebrate this occasion since it is Good Friday. We were busy with the Good Friday rituals in the church and the day went peacefully. Before winding up the day, I thought to share a special recipe of Pineapple Kesari from my drafts. 
During my recent India trip, dad got us few fresh pineapples and it was very tasty. After having few slices of pineapple, I thought of making few dishes using it. I made this pineapple kesari for our special lunch during the church thiruvizha in my native. It came out very well and everyone liked it very much. My uncle (Jany's dad) was asking for a second serving of the kesari since he liked it.

Payaru Kanji Recipe | Green Gram Rice Porridge | Cheru Payar Kanji | Pachai Payaru Kanji | Payaru Kanji with Thengai Chammanthi | Good Friday Special

Payar Kanji is a comforting and traditional food for many Keralites and for people from Kanyakumari District. It is very nutritious, filling and easily digestible.  My mum and grandma make this payar kanji at least once in a week and it is very close to my heart. Still, I follow the tradition and make it once in a week for dinner. It is very easy to make and it goes very well with coconut chammanthi or pickle. Whenever I feel bored to cook or I am sick, we end up making this since it is nutritious than buying from hotels. Since Good Friday is nearing, I thought of sharing this recipe on the blog. We make Payaru Kanji for lunch on Good Friday and even in Churches, it is served. Check out my Cheru payar Thoran which goes well with Plain rice Kanji. Traditionally, they make it in a big pot. However, you can make it in a pressure cooker too. (check notes)Let us move on to the preparation of kanji:

I have already posted 10+ chutney recipes in the blog and to add on this list, today I am sharing yummy red capsicum chutney. Chutney with veggies are very new to me and I started to learn only after my blog.

It was so delicious and it goes well with Idli/Dosa, Chapathi and also steamed rice. Recently, I tried it at home and it turns out super delicious.

Kerala Style Nandu Roast Recipe | Nadan Njandu Roast | Spicy crab roast in Kerala Style

When I was in Chennai, I had got crabs quite a few times since my neighbour helped me with the cleaning of the crabs. After making Crab Masala with Coconut, I was searching for some other recipes without coconut and this recipe caught my attention. I gave it a try and it came out very well. I was postponing this post since the pictures were not good. However, I am never going to buy crab until someone is there to help me out with cleaning. So, I just thought of posting the recipe with my very old pictures. Let us move on to the recipe:

Broccoli Rice Recipe | Indian Style Broccoli Rice | Variety Rice Recipes for Lunch Box | Lunch Box Ideas

Broccoli has a lot of health benefits and I would like to include it in our diet. I don't really like the taste of broccoli and whenever I make Broccoli stir fry or Broccoli potato roast, Jany and I eat it considering its health benefits. However, Happy doesn't eat it and to make her eat, I tried Broccoli paratha. She liked it very much and when I was thinking something similar to that, this broccoli rice came to mind. Since we are grinding the broccoli for this recipe, she didn't complain and had it. I will share a pulao recipe soon without grinding the broccoli. Let us move on to the recipe:

Kadai Paneer Dry Recipe | Spicy Kadai Paneer | Dry Kadai Paneer | Restaurant Style Kadai Paneer

I am not a crazy fan of Paneer, I can have it once in a while. I always make paneer butter masala whenever I have paneer at home. Even Jany and Happy don't show much interest in paneer. I try new paneer recipes, just for the sake of the blog. However, after trying Paneer 65 and Kadai Paneer, I started liking Paneer. I am planning to try more recipes in the future. I always use homemade paneer for my recipes and this Kadai paneer goes very well with Roti or Pulao. Let us move on to the recipe and do check out my Chilli Paneer Dry and Mattar Paneer.

Pachai Payaru Javvarisi Payasam Recipe | Green Gram Sago Kheer | Paasipayaru Payasam | Moong Bean Payasam | Payasam Recipes

When I was asked to prepare some green gram recipes for an event, I made this Payasam along with the other green gram recipes that I posted earlier. Initially, I was planning to make this payasam with Karupatti (Palm Jaggery). However, I ran out of karupatti at that time and hence I made it with normal Jaggery. Green Gram and Karupatti are very nutritious and I suggest you make this payasam with karupatti. Unlike other lentils, the green gram doesn't upset the stomach and it has a lot of nutrients. Do give it a try and let me know the results. Also, check out my other green recipes too: Green Gram Ladoo, Green Gram Suzhiyam, Green Gram Poli, Green Gram sweet sundal, Puttu Payaru Pappadum and Green Gram Thoran.

Mango Shrikhand Recipe | Amrakhand | Mango Recipes | Mango Flavored Yoghurt

Today is a special day for me, yes, it is both my birthday and my dad's birthday. Though we both miss mum on this day, we know she is always with us and she is our strength. The day went well with a lot of blessings and wishes from the family and friends. To celebrate this day, I am sharing a recipe with my favourite fruit mango. Shrikhand is a yoghurt based thick dessert which can be made with any fruit. Mango (Aam) Shrikhand is called as Amrakhand and it is usually served along with Poori or as a dessert. I would relate this to the flavoured yoghurt which we get in tubs.  The Shrikhand is made using hung yoghurt/curd and unlike Mango lassi it is thick.

Paruppu Sevai Recipe | Paruppu Idiyappam | Lentil Rice Noodles | Idiyappam Varieties

Idiyappam/Sevai is one of our staple breakfast/dinner in south India. At home, we always pair it with Non-Veg Curries or Sodhi (Vegetable Stew). When I was working with TCS, one of my colleagues usually brings different types of Idiyappam. It was very new to me at that time and I have tasted her coconut sevai and sweet sevai, it was so delicious. At Jany's friend's engagement, I have tasted lemon sevai and from that day I wanted to try all these sevai at home. I feel really lazy to make Idiyappam at home. However, I force myself to make it since Happy likes it a lot. Recently, I tried three kinds of sevai and it came out super delicious. Today, I am sharing the paruppu sevai and I will post few more varieties too in the coming days. Let us move on to the recipe:

Tempered Tapioca Recipe | Kappa Thalichathu Recipe | Thalicha Marchini | Coconut Kappa | Tapioca cooked and tempered with Coconut

Hope all the Tapioca lovers over there liked the Kappa Masala that I posted yesterday. Today I am sharing, yet another Tapioca recipe. This is very easy to make and it goes well with evening Coffee or Tea. Whenever I make Kappa masala, I reserve some cooked Tapioca and temper it in the evening to serve along with evening tea. Tapioca with lots of freshly grated coconut is a pure bliss for the rainy day evening. I clicked these pictures when I was in my hometown recently. By the way, the glass cup in the picture is my grandfather's. He was using it for many years and I am happy to use it for my blog. Let us move on to the recipe:

Tapioca Masala Recipe | Kappa Masala | Marchini Kizhangu Masala | Maravalli Kizhangu Masala

Being born and brought up in Kanyakumari district, the word 'Marchini Kizhangu' itself creates goosebumps and it gives me many nostalgic memories. When I was a kid, we always had fresh tapioca from our farm. Mum used to make different dishes and this Kappa Masala is one of my favourites. It goes very well with Fish Kuzhambu and there were days when I had this Kappa Masala with fish as my lunch. Jany too is very much fond of Tapioca and in Sydney we got it in an Indian shop, quite a few times. However, it didn't have the taste like the one we get in native. So, during my recent India trip, we had it for lunch most of the days along with rice and fish. I too clicked it once to share it in the blog and without much delay let us move on to the recipe:

Fish Egg Thoran Recipe | Meen Mutta Thoran | Fish Roe Stir Fry

When I was in Chennai, I usually order fish through Supreme Seafood and once they were asking me to try Fish Eggs. I have never tasted it before or cooked it. However, I have heard it through my cousins. Dad also told it is very tasty and rich in nutrients. Hence, I ordered a small amount and tried it over a weekend. (almost 2 years ago 😁). I was searching recipes online and this thoran caught my attention. It is very similar to our vegetable thoran and the fish egg should be fried before making the thoran. The fish eggs don't seem to be appealing, but it tasted awesome and I am planning to make it in the future too. Before moving to the recipe, check out my other Seafood collections too.

Prawn Fried Rice Recipe | Prawn & Egg Fried Rice | Fried rice with prawns fry and Egg

Fried rice is one of my childhood favourites and I prefer it more when compared to Biryani.

Hence, I make some kinds of fried rice for our lunch often. Do check out the fried rice varieties that I have posted already on the blog.

Raw Mango Rice Recipe | Mangai Sadham | Mango Rice | Lunch Box Recipes

As mentioned in few of my earlier posts, I am very crazy about mango and jack fruit. I can sit and eat just the mangoes and jackfruits, the whole day skipping all other food. During my recent India trip, dad has reserved some homegrown fresh mangoes and jackfruits. I enjoyed it to the core and along with the ripe mango, dad had some raw mangoes too. Vanitha akka made mango pickle, aviyal and fish curry using those raw mangoes. Jany was eating the raw mango with some salt and chilli powder. Being a blogger, the first thing comes to mind after seeing raw mango in the tree, is to use it for the blog. Hence, I planned and prepared this mango rice to post it here. It came out very well and dad liked it very much. We had it with Drumsticks Thoran, Mutton Chukka Varuval and Sambharam. Let us move on to the recipe:

Idli Milagai Podi Recipe | Homemade Idli Podi | Idli Podi | Chutney Podi for Idli & Dosa

Making Idli Podi at home is one of my dreams come true. I felt really excited and proud when I made my first batch of Idli podi. When I was in the hostel, mom used to send me bottles of homemade idli podi and I am addicted towards the podi that she makes. After mom, Vanitha akka follows her recipe and sends me a lot of Idli podi whenever dad visits Chennai. After coming to Sydney, I wanted to try my hands in making this podi. However, my first attempt was a failure and I thought of asking dad to send me the podi from home. During my recent India trip, I asked Vanitha akka to prepare it for me and I was with her when she made it. I got the confidence to try it again and I prepared it soon after I came from the vacation. It came out super awesome and I am here with the recipe. This version is simple with very few ingredients and I will be posting another version of Idli Milagai podi soon.

How to Sprout Green Gram at home | Sprouted Green Gram |Sprouted Mung Bean

A few months back during our usual phone conversation, my mom-in-law told me that she is tempering the sprouted green gram for the mid-afternoon snack. She told it is very tasty and it has a lot of health benefits. She explained to me the procedure of sprouting since I was not aware of it and asked me to try it for Happy. After a week, I tried it at home and I was very much excited when I saw the sprouts. From that day I started exploring many recipes using sprouted green gram and I have a few recipes in my drafts as well. However, before sharing those recipes, I wanted to share a post for beginners like me about sprouting the green gram at home. Hence, I was delaying the recipes that I have in hand. This weekend when I sprouted the green gram, I captured the steps and I am here with the preparation steps:

Potato Fry Recipe | Urulaikilangu Varuval | Aloo Fry | South Indian Style Potato Roast

Weekends are always busy for us and if I think of posting something on the blog, mostly it will not work. Today I found some time when Happy and Jany were busy with the swimming practice and I am here with the recipe of easy to make potato roast. Potato is one of my all time favorite vegetable. However, I don't make it quite often thinking it causes gas and bloating. Recently, Happy started liking the potato roast and hence we are indulging on the potato frequently. I add a lot of asafoetida and garlic for easy digestion. The potato roast that I am posting today goes very well with Sambhar rice and Curd rice. I use the same roast potato as the filling for breakfast sandwich if I make it in excess. Let us move on to the preparation steps:
