Gojju Podi | Spice Mix/Masala From Karnataka Cuisine


Foodelicious-Gojju Podi

Hi all!!

Sharing another important spice mix used in Karnataka cuisine. This podi/spice mix/masala is used to make a traditional preparation called Gojju which is spicy-sweet-sour curry made using a select few vegetables and fruits. The most commonly used veggies and fruits are Okra, bittergourd, pineapple, mango, onion, tomato etc.

The freshly ground masala adds a better flavour to the gojju which tastes best with steamed rice.

Mushroom & Onions Focaccia


Foodelicious-Onion & Mushroom Focaccia


The Focaccia frequents my kitchen quite regularly as these are enriched breads which are easy to make. One can try making them with various toppings and variations. This one is the third focaccia recipe that I’m posting here. I’ve previously posted Rosemary-Onion Focaccia and Focaccia Caprese.

I was baking another batch of Focaccia Caprese when I decided to make this combination too. I wasn’t too sure how mushroom would taste on it but decided to give it a go and I was contented with the outcome. Focaccia is a very forgiving bread and one normally can’t mess it up. The combination worked and the addition of sea salt gave a nice coarse crunch and saltiness to the topping. I would recommend you not to skip the coarse sea salt. S’s verdict was that the focaccia tastes awesome because of the sea salt.

Kid’s Lunch Box Ideas| Thin Red Beaten Rice/Poha With Veggies | Step Wise | Vegan


Foodelicious- Red Beaten Rice With Veggies


I had taken an opinion poll on Facebook fan page, on what all of you would like to read next on the blog and I got an overwhelming response and most of them asked for a healthy kid’s lunch box recipe, it goes to show that the prime concern for all mothers is how to feed healthy food to their children.

As a mother of a teenager, I thrive to feed veggies to my son in every possible way. I find his lunch box most crucial as it’s the meal he has at school in the afternoon. I have to keep coming up with ideas which sound interesting to him and he can proudly share with his friends. As I’ve mentioned earlier that his friends look out for his lunch box and a boring lunch box is not what he would like to show to his friends. I can’t give him junk food or a deep fried items regularly too, which he would most happily eat to increase my discomfort.

Virgin Peach-Plum-Chilli Mojito For Sparkling Himalayan Mocktail Contest | Mocktail | Summer Drink




It’s monsoon time in most part of the country but here in my city it is always sultry and hot, so I do not need an occasion or season to make myself a glass of chilled juice or mocktail. The stone fruits have almost disappeared from the market and I was left with just three peaches and a few plums so decided to use them to make a cool drink. I love the peach schnappes and in peak summer the peach schnappes with loads of ice in it is more than welcomed. Unfortunately we do not get that in my city and I’m looking forward to visit Pondycherry to pick one bottle.

Kid's Lunch Box Ideas| Stuffed Cream and Fenugreek Flatbread | भरवाँ मेथी मलाई पराठा | Step Wise

Hi all!!
Fenugreek greens is a family favourite but unfortunately I get to see these greens rarely here. Last week when I visited my vegetable mart, I saw that fresh greens had just arrived and I was tempted to buy all the varieties. But knowing that the greens perish very fast, I controlled my temptations and narrowed my purchase to the fenugreek greens, coriander and mint.
When I returned home and asked S what he wants me to cook with the fenugreek, he gave me his favourite options of Methi Bhaath and Maatvadi Palya. Both I and the kid were in no mood to eat South Indian food, so I asked S to suggest more options, to which he replied conveniently ‘then you decide’. I was a bit annoyed initially that again I had to sit, then I thought of making mushroom methi matar but I didn’t want to go elaborate and make rice, daal, roti  too. I was about to give up and make a simple methi daal but then the grey cells decided to work …
