Romanian Meatballs Recipe | Chiftele | Meatballs

Today's recipe brings me so many amazing memories of our trip to Paris in 2015. We visited many places in Paris during our stay and once Jany's French friend and colleague Robert invited us to his home. We stayed in his home for a night before we went on a two-day trip to Lisieux with his family. That night Robert's wife Emilia served us yum dinner with French and Romanian dishes. (They were originally from Romania and settled in Paris). She served us these meatballs with rice and it was so delicious. I got this recipe from her before leaving Paris and tried it once after coming to Chennai. It turned out very well and I wanted to post it on the blog from then. However, I missed to post it here these many days. Recently, I found the handwritten recipe note(written in French and translated into English) handed over by Emilia. The very next day, I tried and clicked it. Finally, I am here with the recipe:

Jangri Recipe | Mini Jangri | How to make Jangri | Diwali Special Recipe

I never thought that I would make Jangri at home and the blogging journey is pushing me out of my comfort zone to explore more recipes. Last year I made Boondhi Ladoo and Tirunelveli Halwa, and I was jumping in joy when I achieved the perfect outcome. This year I was planning for Jangri and I tried it this Friday. It tasted so yummy; however, I was not satisfied with the shape and size. I made a big hole in the piping bag and the Jangri was very big than I expected. Also, I was struggling to take a decent photo and the output was not up to my satisfaction. So, today I made it again and I am really happy about the result. Do check out my other Diwali Collections too. Let's move to the recipe:

Today I am sharing yet another interesting recipe, Sweet Sev. This was one of my childhood favourite snacks that I lost interest when I grow up. However, Jany likes this and he prefers to eat it along with Spicy Karasev. Since he doesn't show much interest in payasam or sweets, I made sweet sev and kara sev for his birthday last year. That was the first time I made this sweet sev and it came out super delicious. From that time I was planning to click it for the blog and finally did it yesterday.

Agra Petha Recipe | Ash Gourd Candy | Kumbalanga Sweet | Diwali Special Recipe

The exciting part of being a food blogger is to learn new recipes based on upcoming festivals. This year too I have planned new recipes and already started trying some, which I will be posting in the coming days. Today's recipe is from the drafts that I tried during the last Diwali and missed to post it here.  I am very much fond of this sweet during my childhood and we call it Kumbalanga (Ash gourd) Sweet. We buy this from Tirunelveli Arasan Bakery or Nagercoil Agarwal sweets. Once, my mama tried this Agra petha and shared a photo on WhatsApp, I was super tempted to try that immediately. However, finding Limestone/Sunnambu in Sydney is really hard and I never thought that I could find. I started looking for it in all the Indian shops around me and luckily I found it in a shop. When I tried the first time, it was a big disaster. I didn't lose hope and again tried it the next day. It came out really well and I am here with the recipe. Check out my already existing Diwali Sweets/Snacks from the blog. Let's see the preparation:

Happy Ganesh Chathurthi to everyone celebrating. I had a great time making Ulundu Kara Kozhukattai that I posted yesterday and this Peanut Modak. I shared it with my friends and they gave a big thumbs up for this recipe. During one of our regular calls, my friend Gomathy was telling that she made this peanut kozhukattai as the after-school snack for her kids. Also, she told that she usually has this powdered jaggery and peanut filling in the fridge and it comes in handy for any quick sweet fix. So, when I was planning for Vinayagar chathurthi recipes, I called and got this recipe from her. She gave an amazing tip for making the outer layer really soft and it worked like a charm for me.

Ulundu Kara Kozhukattai Recipe | Ulundu Pidi Kozhukattai | Ganesh Chathurthi Recipes

Though we don't celebrate Ganesh Chaturthi at home, I have seen my mum making kozhukattai during this festival season. She makes Paal Kozhukattai, Arisi Pidi Kozhukattai and Therali Kozhukattai. When I was a kid, I don't prefer any of these kozhukattai and I started loving it when I grow up. I ask mum to make kozhukattai whenever I feel like eating it and to continue that tradition I am making kozhukattai now. Happy has slowly started showing interest in Paal kozhukattai and I want to introduce a variety of kozhukattai to her.  Today, I am sharing the recipe of ulundu kozhukattai that I saw recently in Rak's Kitchen. This can be made it for breakfast or dinner and it goes very well with coconut chutney or any other spicy chutney. Do check out the collection of my Ganesh Chaturthi recipes from the blog.

Long Beans Potato Poriyal Recipe | Karamani Urulai poriyal | Karamani Potato Poriyal

Beans varieties are my least preferred vegetable for making poriyal. I can eat it only in the form of paruppu usili.

I always end up making usili with that and once I asked her about the dishes she makes with karamani. She gave this recipe with the combination of potato.

Egg Kothu Parotta Recipe | Mutta Kothu parotta | Parotta with Egg

Most of us love to eat parotta from the roadside shops, though we all know it is not healthy. The taste of that maida parotta is really yummy, especially the spicy kothu parotta with lots of onions and green chillies. In my native, we have a helper akka whose husband makes the yummiest parotta. So, whenever we go on vacation, he comes home and makes parotta for us in our kitchen at least once.  Last time when he made, I reserved few parotta to try kothu parotta. Though I have not followed the restaurant style method of mixing plain salna at the end, it tasted very delicious. This egg kothu parotta can be made in a jiffy if we have parotta in hand either frozen or fresh. This post was lying in my draft for more than a year now and finally, the time has come for it to go live:) Let's see the simple preparation steps:
