Stuffed Bitter Gourd With A Bengal Gram Filling | चना दाल वाले भरवां करेले | Step Wise | No Onion-Ginger-Garlic Preparation

I’m back again with a vegetable which is not liked by many people and this time again I’m posting a stuffed version and that too using chana besan (Chickpea Flour) but used in an unprocessed form i.e, I’m using the lentils. In my previous version posted here years back, I had used the chickpea flour as well as the Bengal gram and Split black gram. Other than the Bengal Gram, the ingredients used in making both the fillings are quite different.

Tender Mangoes Pickle Without Oil | बाळ कैरीचं पाण्यातलं लोणचं | Midi Maavin Uppinkayi | Step Wise | Vegan | Dairy Free

Hi All!!
I mentioned my love for the tender mangoes in my tender mangoes in brine post and here I’m with my second post on tender mangoes and this time it’s a pickle. I was very fond of pickles in my childhood and my school lunch box would always have 3-4 pieces of mango pickle. My mom’s mango pickle was very popular amongst my school friends as well as friends in the neighbourhood, so it was customary for me to carry extra pieces in  my lunch box. Though, now it sounds funny but I would wipe off all the spices first with the paratha and then wash the pickle piece and eat it.

Today while I surfed through my old pictures, I landed on these Pooris and realized that I have the recipe lying in my drafts for ages now. I kept wondering how I missed posting this but at the same time was happy too, as it is just the right time for me to post it for my current event ‘Only’ Cooking With Grains running through this month and is guest hosted by Shruti.

How To Make Tender Mangoes In Brine | Uppu Niralli Midi Maavin Kayi | खाऱ्या पाण्यातल्या बाळ कैऱ्य्। | Kitchen- Basics

Hi All!
I can’t recollect when was the first time that I had tasted the tender mango pickle but ever since then, I’m in love with it. Unfortunately in North India, the tender mangoes are not so readily available unless one has a tree at home, so I never indulged into trying a pickle using them. But in South India, the baby mangoes are readily available in season and I was too eager to brine them and also try the pickle. In this post however I will share how I preserved the tender mangoes in brine. But before I explain further it’s important to know what a brine is..It is basically a salty solution that can be used as a preservative to prevent bacterial growth.

Learning Pizza @ Pizza Corner Party




Hi All!

You might say that it 1st April so I’m trying to fool you. So just to confirm there’s no fooling around in this post so read it seriously Winking smile.

The next day after I landed back in the city after the well deserved break recently, I was invited to learn the art of Pizza making by Pizza Corner. I was in double minds as there was fatigue because of travel, I was still unpacking, the kid had a half day at school and I had a whole lot of other things to finish. But somehow things happened smoothly and since I had already committed, I didn’t want to back off. I knew that a similar kind of event was done at Bangalore and bloggers had loved it, so that motivated me even more.
