This is a super healthy and delicious side for those who loves bitter gourd. First time when I heard the name of this recipe from my mom , it sounded different as I never used coconut masala in bittergourd fry. But really this pairs wonderfully with rice items like sambar/rasam/curd rice. As you all know this veggie is loaded with vitamins , minerals and anti oxidants and is so good for diabetes . We enjoyed this dish thoroughly . Try this Masala Bittergourd Fry and let me know how it turned out for you.

Restaurant menu for breakfast starts with Idli ,Dosa ,Puri ,Vada , Pongal etc…. it goes like this… If there is Poori then there should be Poori masala , this combination is fantastic. I do love my pooris with Kurmas as well as Coconut chutney . But hubby dear and kid likes traditional side so I mostly go with this masal . You can also use this masala for making masala dosa or a stuffing for sandwich. Lets learn how to make traditional poori masala…

Briyani is a special treat on most of the special occasions. Dindigul Thalappakatti Briyani is very famous ,and I’m from that place , so obviously my favourite are Thalappakatti and Venu Briyani . Besides these hotel taste I’m a big fan of my mom’s version . The Chicken and Mutton Briyani made by my mom is the perfect one to me. It tastes delicious and loaded with lots of flavours. This one-pot meal catches its place often in our sunday menu. Moreover this Briyani is made using the pressure pan and I swear this is so easier to prepare. The key ingredient in this Briyani is the homemade Briyani powder (Refer the notes to prepare this powder). Please give it a try and let me know your views.

Rava Kesari is one of the popular Indian sweet which we make for most of the festivals . Not only for festivals I will make whenever I crave for something sweet and moreover I am a diehard fan of this semolina kesari . This is one of the easiest sweet preparation . Hubby got a pineapple last week so I tried this yummy kesari with pineapple and it was really a big hit . I recommend you to make this recipe with ripe pineapples that will add some more sweetness to the kesari . Be generous in adding ghee that will make the kesari melt in your mouth , the more the ghee added will make the kesari more tastier. Lets go to the recipe…

Mutton Chukka is a famous item that attracts most of our (non-veg lovers) attention in hotels . My father used to buy mutton chukka whenever we buy briyani from outside . It will be pretty dry and tastes awesome . This is the way my mother makes chukka at home . Mutton is not in our regular menu , we used to buy once in a month .The only thing that annoys me is the mutton I am getting here at Leeds is not as much good as we used to get in my home town . But I can say that its not much bad as I used to it now . I love it more spicy so adjust as per your taste. Try it if you crave for something more spicy and enjoy this with your family . Don’t forget to let me know your views about this recipe . Lets go to the preparation….
