Corn Cheese Sandwich Recipe | Corn Cheese Mayonise Sandwich | Grilled Corn Cheese Sandwich | Easy Breakfast Recipe

After coming to Sydney, our weekday's busy breakfast revolves around sandwiches. These days Jany is having his breakfast on the way to his office and he prefers sandwich when compared to south Indian tiffin since it is easy for him to carry. So, I am exploring different sandwiches with vegetables and eggs stuffing. Hopefully, I will be posting much more soon. This corn cheese sandwich is similar to the Chilli Cheese sandwich which I have already posted. Check out my Chicken Sandwich and Egg in a Toast too.

Crab Meat Podimas Recipe | Crab Meat Burji | Nandu Podimas | Njandu Podimas

As mentioned in the Crab Masala post, cooking and eating crab is very new to me since mom doesn't cook crab.   I am very afraid to handle crabs and prawns while cooking. When we were in Chennai, our weekend shopping usually ends up with a lunch in Anjappar:) And during each visit, I order something new just to explore the dishes I am not familiar with. Once I ordered this crab meat podimas and it tasted too good. I was asking about this recipe to a person who was working there, he gave me some tips for the preparation and ingredients involved. The next weekend, I ordered crab meat in Supreme Seafood since I am not good at cleaning. They delivered me the fresh crab meat and I prepared this on the same day. It came out very well and here is the recipe for you:

Mushroom Roast Recipe | Kalan/Koon Roast | Mushroom Ularthiyathu | Spicy Sauteed Mushrooms

Recently after coming to Sydney, I am exploring a lot of mushroom recipes. After tasting the Mushroom Biryani couple of times, we are attracted towards the mushrooms. I have few more recipes on hand which I will be trying it this week. I made this mushroom roast for lunch to pair up with steamed rice and rasam. However soon after I made it, we used it as a stuffing on wholemeal bread along with grated cheese for our morning breakfast. It tastes too good and I am happy about my new healthy sandwich recipe which I can prepare for busy weekdays :) This is a simple and easy to make recipe which goes well with Rice, Chapathi and Bread. Let us move on to the recipe:

Coriander Chutney Recipe | Coriander Flavored Coconut Chutney | Hotel Style Coriander Chutney | Chutney Recipes for Idli Dosa

Saravana Bhavan is one of my favourite restaurants in Chennai to explore south Indian tiffin varieties. When I was staying in the hostel, I skip hostel lunch just to relish the Saravana Bhavan delicacies in the office cafeteria. Mostly I order some variety of dosa, especially to taste the spread of chutneys served. Though I like all the chutneys served, green chutney tops the list and I usually go for extra serving :) Jany also loves that green chutney and hence thought of trying it at home. After so much googling, I finally came up with this recipe using the inputs from many other blogs. It might not be the exact recipe of Saravana Bhavan chutney, but it tastes equally good. Check out my Coriander-Mint Chutney too. Off to the recipe:

Yet another Oats recipe and this was lying in my drafts for such a long time. Finally, it is making its way here and this is a south Indian style oats recipe :). I have already posted Apple Honey Oatmeal and Oats Raisins Walnut Cookies. This is one of my signature dishes which my mom and mom in law like the most. I was making this more often when I started cooking since everybody appreciated. This is one such recipe which I learned because of blogging since it was posted by many of the bloggers. Let us move on to the recipe:

Varutharacha mutton curry Recipe | Mutton curry with dry roasted coconut masala | Goat meat curry with roasted coconut | Mutton in roasted coconut Gravy

I love varutharacha mutton or chicken curry than the normal curry because of the nice aroma that comes from the dry roasted coconut masala. I have already posted mom's varutharacha chicken curry, and I wanted to post this mutton curry too. This recipe has been tweaked a little from the original mom's recipe and it also came out well. The preparation process might be lengthy, but it is worth giving a try. Nothing is coming to my mind at the moment since I am rushing to finish this post before I pick Happy from playschool. So, without much delay let us move on to the recipe:

Mushroom Biryani Recipe | Easy Pressure Cooker Mushroom Biryani | Kaalan Biryani | Lunch Box Ideas / Quick lunch Ideas

Many of my readers and friends were asking about Mushroom recipes for such a long time now and finally I am posting this recipe. This is the first ever mushroom recipe in this space and hopefully, I will be posting much more soon. Yesterday, Jany had the potluck in his office and he wanted to take both veg and non-veg dishes since many of his colleagues prefer vegetarian dishes. We kept the menu to be simple and I made this mushroom biryani, Chicken Cutlet, and Wheat Flour Unniyappam. I will post the wheat flour Unniyappam next week, you can check out my rice flour version of unniyappam until then. 
Winter has already started in Sydney and I am not able to click any dish that I prepare in the early morning since I am not receiving enough natural light. I am not satisfied with these pictures too, I will update this when I take good Photographs.
