Curry Mela - 27th week

Welcome back to the 27th Curry Mela again.. I almost postponed today Curry mela till next weekend, when I decided not to. Anyway here were are yet again, I hope you will enjoy, as you always have. Cheers.


Sorakaya Paala Kootu

Let us start with somethign different. This is Sorakaya Paala Kootu or Bottle Gourd cooked in Milk. We have something similar which we call modhujaan or something in Manipur. Had been meaning to cook it for a long time now, even got the Kaali Til and all that for the recipe. Enjoy this till then....

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


Aloo Zucchini Posto

Now this one is Aloo and Zucchini Posto, now I love Posto, Aloo Posto, Zhinge Posto. These are amazing Poppy (Khus Khus or khas khas) based Bengali Recipes.
--------------------------------------------------------------

Veg Sandwich

A very tasty and healthy mid-meal bombay snackBombay vegetable Sandwich, and you thought there were only Vada Paos in Mumbai..

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


Sambar Arachuvita
Arachuvita Sambar, Now this blogger used to refer to this sambar as Hotel Sambar as kid :-) I can definitely understand how we wished our mom cooked like they do in the restaurants or Hotels. We realised how we miss Home cooking only now....

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


Chilli Chicken

Chilli Chicken, the safest recipe or dish to try when you are unsure of what to order in a new Chinese restaurant.
--------------------------------------------------------------


Balti Chicken

Balti Chicken Sounds like it came straight the menu board of a Dhaba, but then it is from a Dhaba :-)

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


Linzer Cookies


Delectable Linzer Cookies, literal eye candy, oops cookies.
--------------------------------------------------------------


Pepper Rasam


"Can I have some Paper rasam please?"

"Which paper, sir, We have Time of India, Hindustan Times, Eenadu, which paper do you want with the Rasam sir."

"You Stupid fellow, I want Paper, not newspaper"

This Pepper Rasam had created quite a stir..
--------------------------------------------------------------


Bitter Gourd and Mango

This Bitter Gourd and Green Chilli Curry is something I must try. I love Bitter Gourd or karelas with Potatoes but Green mango is something I must try.
--------------------------------------------------------------




Yummy Dessert, this berry dessert is.. Like the blogger said, very berry dessert, vanilla yoghurt and all that.
--------------------------------------------------------------




Wow, Egg and drumstick curry, or Kodigudu Mullakaaya Pulusu something that must go into my side bar's egg menu.
--------------------------------------------------------------


Chilli Porota


Chilli Porota or Kothu Porota, This is somehow related to what the north and west Indians call Parathas, but porotas or parotas are quite different in both its spiral Looks and good taste. This recipe is one made from shredded porotas, and she has given some other non-veg variants, which would no doubt be amazing...

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


Fat Free Snacks

Fat free Snacks and specially Bhel are something I love. I have been wanting to post some fat-free, low calorie and healthy recipes, since remaining Healthy easily have become a premium in the rushed lifestyle we all lead today.

Let me close today's curry mela with this Healthy recipe... Hope you enjoyed and will try some of today's spread. And of course check out this new blogger, Monica gi Chakhum, which means Monica's Kitchen. Chakhum is Kitchen in Manipuri, expect some authentic Manipuri recipes from her Blog.

Hey Tony,I am doing pretty good:) preparing for finals for summer sem.
Abt the site probs,I sometimes get this pop-up asking me to download some Active-X,which I refuse.Also,the comment box does take infintely long time to open.Unless these problems are confined to few people,I would say new visitors may not be coming back to ur site....so do look into it.
I do think the home page has too much stuff to load..maybe putting in separate pages may help.
Anyway,keep up the good work!!!!

hi tony, finally the ban is lifted. from yesterday, i could access the blogs. it was so frustrating having to access your own blog through some obscure proxy server. thank god, whoever did this must have realised the futility of their silly acts. so, carry on with your great curry melas. its a boon to those who needs a quick overview of the curry blogosphere !
