After reading my recipe's name as Raw banana/vazhakkai kofta, you might be wondering how could this even work!! Even I had never seen any gravy recipe with raw banana until I came across Sneha akka's The Secret Ingredient Blog. Her recipe photos are extremely professional taken by Sathya anna and looks so yummy that you can never miss trying them out. (Excuse my bad photography, yet to buy a DSLR and master it!) I knew only to make some usual side dishes for rice from vazhakkai, so i thought of giving this a try and I must say that it turned out real good!!
Green and Healthy chutney for your dosas and idlis, quick and easy. This is my favorite chutney since childhood, compared to all other chutneys my mom makes. And this is the best way i could add mint and corriander into my diet.
Small Onions - 10
Green chillies - 2 or 3
Corriander leaves - 1 cup
Mint leaves - 1 cup
Cocunut scrapped - 2 tbsp
Tamarind - a small pinch
Kadai Mushroom or Kadai Paneer is the easiest and quickest sidedish I would ever make for roti/chappati. No grinding you see ;)... This time it's my own recipe because i love to try anything with mushrooms. I know many of you are showing faces, most of you dont like mushrooms is it?? Poor mushys!! I love mushrooms than paneer. And my hubby loves capsicum in any form, so had to make this often.
Mushroom (each one diced into 4) - 1 cup
Onion sliced - 2
Tomatoes chopped - 2
Capsicum cubed - 1
Ginger Garlic paste - 1 tblsp
Green chillies - 2 (optional)
Red chilli powder - 1 tsp
Dhaniya/coriander powder - 1 tsp
Garam masala powder - 3/4 tsp
Turmeric powder - 1/8 tsp
Coriander leaves chopped - 2 tblsp
Another tried and tested recipe from Rak's Kitchen. First time I tried dum aaloo recipe and it came out pretty good. My Hubby says only the truth when it comes to my cooking and he liked it :)
Here is the link to the recipe: Dum Aloo Recipe.
My Tweaks to the recipe:
# Didnt have black cardamom
# And skipped adding lemon
Happy Cooking!! Are you going to try this one?
I had been trying to make my best pulao, ever since I started cooking and you know what I finally made it!! :) I follow a lot of food bloggers to get inspired in cooking new recipies everyday. I dont like to repeat any recipies often and bore others too. One of the food blogger who is my favorite and has never let me down is Rak's Kitchen. Her photos are amazing, lip smacking and will definitely urge you to try them. This recipe is inspired from her tomato and peas pulao recipe. I do not want to repeat it's version, so here is the link to the recipe: Tomato Pulao Recipe.
My tweaks to the recipe:
# Avoided green chillies to reduce the spice and elaichi because i dont like it's flavor much :(
Do let me know if this recipe turned out well for you too.
