Curry Mela 15th

And I am, like 3 weeks late??
But guess what? I am back for good ;-)

Without further ado, Here goes my Curry Mela the 15th....

Peerkangai Tuvaiyal or ridged gourd Chutney.


Stacks of Mooli Parathas, amazingly photographed. But of course you have all seen it already ;-) . I just loved it so much I had to have it on the Curry Mela. Makes excellent Breakfast... And hey this can be deep frozen and kept for very long.....


Here is a simple food, on the lines of my blog's theme of easy recipes. Aloo tamatar subzi curried potatoes in Tomatoes, lol my and potatoes.

Mint Chocoloate tartlets, and how I love tarts... This is a definite show stealer... And hey pal, your new template rocks....


This is Chicken 65 without the fat, that is. Get the protiens without the fats eh!!! an Excellent Health food..

This Buttermilk Ricotta Pancakes looks so very buttery and tempting, Looks like they are screaming at me right out of the screen, TAKE ME TONY :-) and that strawberry on top is so ummm 9 1/2 weeks.

How I used to pester my Mom to make Sooji Halwa(sheera/sanja) for breakfast as a kid.. I can still rememeber the smell of bayleaves and of roast Sooji, when you raost sooji in ghee before adding the milk... Woh kagaz Ki kasti, Woh barish ka paani, aur Woh roasted sooji ki gaandh, Woh Bachpan ki Yaadein :-)


Check out this Baked Ras Malai , Ras malai is an all time favorite. It is the Queen of all sweets, RasoGollas being the King ;-) ... Noton Gurer Sandesh is another King though.. I do have a sweet tooth... But yes, I used to have ras malai for breakfast at one point of time... the juicy milky sweet ummmmmmm..... Mouth Watering....

Kerala ishtyle mutton ishtu (stew) and Ari pathiri (Rice Roti) , Oh! How I love Kerela Food (except for the pre-boiled rice *smiles*)


Jackfruit Paruppu Payasam, a traditional sweet dish of the south India. A must try....


Moong Dal Kosumbari, a ton of protiens the blogger says. This is a much for vegeterians who have to rely on pulses for essential protiens. Yummy protiens, I say.


OK, I love Potatoes. What If I look like a Potato? I am health concious, not in the weight watching category, but what-I-eat-shouldn't-damage my Digestive-tract-category, So I like greens too. Greens and leafy vegetables are somethings I never miss in my dinner. So obviously, I love beans...So this beans and potato curry came as an obvious favoriote :-)


But of course, I love Karela or bitter gourd. As you have seen my last post, I even have it with Biryani. Imagine my surprise, followed by a grin when I discovered this dish, Kakara kaaya Ullikaram Kura, a whole new way to prepare my favorite karela. Stuffed Karela no less... and I have been doing a lot of stuffing these days..


Shah Jeera Mutton sounds very yummy, looks yummy too ;-) . I love ShahJeera with Fish, Thanks to Parna of foodie's bar .. Can't wait to try with Mutton.


Mixed vegetable Stew, what the blogger calls Khat Khate, a very interesting Konkani Dish with an equally Interesting Nomenclature, I say.

***Thank you ***
