Homemade Lemon Pickle Recipe| Lime Pickle

Hope you all are enjoying the weekend!! After I start going to office, I am really waiting for the weekends to try some new cooking and blogging. But even on weekends we are really busy with our weekly shopping, taking Happy to play area and spending some valuable time with her. So blogging takes second priority and I am here in this space less often. I will try my level best to focus on this in the near future.
              And coming to today's post, it is homemade pickle which was lying in my drafts for such a long time now. I always wanted to try pickles at home. I soaked the lemon and salt, 15 days before my mom's last visit to Chennai. When she came here, the lemons where ready  and mom tempered it while I was clicking. It was really hard to digest that while preparation Mom was here and while posting she was no more. Maybe we cannot have her physical appearance, but she is living with us in almost everything we have in our home.

Chilli Cheese Toast Recipe

Chilli Cheese Toast is one of my all time favorite toasts that can be made in a jiffy. When I was in hostel, I usually have my morning breakfast at office and most of the days I order chilli cheese toast. I got this recipe from the shop guy, who was preparing it for me. It was very simple and easy to make. After I got a sandwich maker, I tried it in my home and it tastes good. Jany's cousins really loved this chilli cheese toast which I offered them during their last visit. I have presented the recipe with sandwich maker and I have included stove top method in the notes section as well.

Varutharacha Chicken Curry Recipe | Kerala style Chicken Curry| My 100th Post (Mom's Special Recipe)

Yet another milestone for  Happy's Cook, it's 100th post.  When my mom was there, we planned something special for this occasion. But somehow my mom's signature recipe came as my 100th post. I am really happy and blessed to present you all this simple and yummy chicken curry which my mom makes. I usually make Chicken curry differently (I will try to post that too). But Jany likes this chicken curry which they make it in my home. So two weeks back, he was asking for this chicken curry and I tried it on that Sunday. It came out really well. Here we go for the recipe:
