Rice & Corn Salad; Light Meal On Monday; Vegan Recipe

Rice & Corn Salad

Hi all!

Wish you all a very Happy New Year. This happens to be my first post of 2016. I had actually started wondering whether I would be able to post anything in this month or rather the next few months. The younger one appears for his X boards this year and currently he is writing his pre-boards.

2015 was a very tough year for the family but I’m more than glad that we fought and have survived it so far. God willing we would sail through it. Next few months are challenging till we finish the boards, after that I and kid will get some breathing space. I’m so looking forward to visiting my Mum whom I have’nt visited in 2years. I also intend to take a vacation with the family if S gets leave from his office. Our family vacation is equally due.

Rachana's Arugula-Cottage Cheese & Pasta Salad With Honey-Mustard-Lemon Vinaigrette- Stepwise Post; Light Meal On Monday - Post 4

Cottage Cheese & Arugula Salad With Lemon-Honey-Mustard Dressing


I’m back with another post on Light Meal On Monday. Last Monday happened to be my birthday so there was definitely no light eating on that day, hence did not post a light meal.

About two months back we met our long time friends Rachana & Mohit after a long interval of 7yrs. It was our first social interaction at a family level after moving to Mumbai. I was in no mood to cook as I was on a cooking spree ever since we moved to this city and insisted Rachana to meet outside for a lunch so that she also gets a break from the kitchen along with me and we all could chit chat without the baggage of cooking and feeding our families.

Three Recipes- Arugula/Roquette leaf Pesto Two Ways; Bruschetta With Arugula Pesto, Product Review- Maharaja Whiteline Flora Mixer Grinder

Arugula Pesto- Two Ways


After moving to Mumbai, I have explored many more exotic vegetables which were not easily available in Chennai, one of them is the Arugula or Roquette Leaves. I'm in love with this leafy vegetable which has a sharp taste and adds a punch to the food with it’s distinguishing flavour. It has a taste which is a milder combination of radish and mustard leaves put together.

With the winter setting in and loads of winter bounty to cherish, it's soups and salads for us at nights. I'm going to post  more  recipes using the Arugula, as it's a great ingredient for salads, topping for crostini and appetisers.

Idlis in Jackfruit Leaves-Stepwise; Khotte/Khotte Kadubu; Light Meal On Monday - Post 3

Khotte Idli

Hello!  I couldn’t post anything last Monday as my head was too occupied with Chennai floods disaster and during that week I was feeling to low to cook or post anything elaborate when so many out there in Chennai had lost their homes.
I have a sentimental attachment with the city where I have spent 5 good years of my life, during two stints and have lived their till 8 months back. Many of my blogger friends spent days without power and proper food, I went sleepless during those days, feeling helpless and miserable.
All the while I prayed, that God shows mercy, the rain stops and people could get back to their normal lives. Now that things have normalised in the city, my head and heart can focus back on the blog

Spaghetti Aglio e Olio or Pasta with Garlic & Oil; Light Meal On Monday- Post 2; Stepwise


I’m back with another post on ‘Light Meal On Monday’. As I’ve mentioned to you in my last Monday’s post of Spicy Soba Noodles & Tofu Salad in Peanut butter- Basil Dressing, that Monday is when I prefer to eat light. This weekend we did binge as it was S’s birthday and now it’s time to eat light and healthy food to balance all the binging done earlier.

Spicy Soba Noodles & Tofu Salad In Peanut Butter-Basil Dressing;Maharaja Whiteline TurboMix King Hand Blender’s Review; Light Meal On Monday- Post 1; Step Wise

Spicy Soba Noodles & Tofu Salad in Peanut Butter and Basil dressing

I work through the week and also make three meals a day, so when weekend comes, my only requirement is to break the monotony and eat out. And probably like me, many families relax on weekends and eat out, so it becomes important that to balance it, we eat healthy and light food on the Monday, giving due rest to our stomach, which finally keeps our digestive system healthy and improves digestion.
I have been planning to start this series of ‘Light Meal On Mondays’ for quite some time now but somehow it was just getting postponed because of the currently more important commitments at home. I know I’m pushing my boundaries but I am going to really try hard and post a recipe to a light meal once in the week, preferably on a Monday hence forth.
