Curry Mela 17th

And... It's already time for the Curry Mela yet again. This will be the 17th Curry Mela. I can't believe that it is been going on for so long... We have a round up of some amazing dishes. And some new bloggers too... I hope you will enjoy this week's curry mela like you always do...




Little Hearts, Cinnamon almond palmiers, look at it and imagine how it will melt in your mouth..umm heavenly...

-----------------------------------------------------------------



We sure have a lot of healthy food today.. This Green plantain chutney(Aratikaya pachadi) is another recipe which is as healthy as it taste yum... a must try

-----------------------------------------------------------------


I am not so sure how many of my reader have ever tried the Roasted Garlic, I have and this is one addictive food accessory, lol. taste good, and keep your immune system strong. I always have this when I feel that I might catch cold or fever. And believe me, I am seldom sick. it's very yummy too...

-----------------------------------------------------------------


Sago upma, a very nice breakfast recipe. It is very healthy too.

-----------------------------------------------------------------

Tamarind rice (puliyodharai), been a long time since I had this. A simple and quite yummy rice preparation, quite popular in the Southern india.

-----------------------------------------------------------------


A very healthy, tasty and filling recipe, and an all time favorite, Aloo methi..

-----------------------------------------------------------------


Ridgegourd curry, lemme assure you, this particular vegetable takes a very special skill to turn to something nice. But, if you know how too cook a good ridge gourd curry, it will taste excellent. And it sure taste the mettle of a chef :-) This , here, is a very nice recipe...


-----------------------------------------------------------------



Chivda, such a delight to have as an in-between-meals Snack or while working generally. Haldiram's minted Millions out of it, untill somebody posted the recipe her. Check out this amazing Chivda recipe, fairly easy too.


-----------------------------------------------------------------


Stew fried Tofu, a vegetarian Chinese dish from a blogger far from here... Bachelors fresh out of home, specially MS students and young IT freshers, who start cooking at a bachelor pad find Tofu in the supermarkets and often confuse it with paneer. Well, At least a friedn did, lol so I made it up for all like him. Anyway Tofu is not paneer. Is it make from Soy??? Google it..

-----------------------------------------------------------------


Vankaaya kura, a brinjal curry. Was it Akbar who said brinjal was the king of vegetables? BTW, is there a difference between Egg plant and brinjal? This curry was prepared with egg plant. back home we get the deep purple large Brinjals that makes great vadas or pakoras, and smaller roundish variety is I guess the egg plant. I mean if there were a difference. We also get this long and thin, like fingers, Brinjals which make great Stirr fried dish with Peanuts, my all time favorite...

-----------------------------------------------------------------

Lots of shrimps today ;-), have I mentioned how much I love Shrimps, shrimps pakodas, and shrimps stir fried with Mint, or pudina leaves, just heaven. Check out this Shrimp curry in spicy onion tomato


-----------------------------------------------------------------


Vanilla Flavored Shrimps?? Now this is what I call creativity. And a great appetizer, it is. HAve with wine says the blogger...

-----------------------------------------------------------------


Ginger peanut bar and a nice write-up on the values of ginger...

-----------------------------------------------------------------

Mango chicken, now who says we don't get new dishes every weekend??

-----------------------------------------------------------------


Scrambled egg in coriander curry, I had a list of eggy post a long time.. I haven't had eggs since the bird blu though, lol. I guess it's time to start again. What better excuse than this excellent post... This blogger also has done excellent eggy treats...

-----------------------------------------------------------------

Chocolate chip crumble !! The kind of recipes that gives me a tinge of envy... I am a bad baker.. lol.
-----------------------------------------------------------------


The blogger wrote about this dish Acar, "Acar is a Malaysian spicy pickled crunchy salad that is commonly served as condiment or relish to be eaten with a main course. It is sort of a must have item in the food served in Indian & Malay weddings in Malaysia."

-----------------------------------------------------------------


Soya Granules Curry kind of reminds me of Kheema. The vegetarian's non veg replacement.

-----------------------------------------------------------------


The last entry and The first Pork dish on my Blog, from an Indian chef, I guess.. Pork Fry from a new blogger, Sumitha Shibu. Let me take this opportunity to introduce this new blog as well..
