Spring Fritatta

The swaying little green leaves, wild flowers and all the trees in their best attire. Spring makes my world looks like heaven. Am happy for the fact that i can see some more vegetables over the racks in the groceries. My kid is going out in the park and is well enjoying with some water works that he does there. It's a great relief for me as am not use to such cold harsh weather but am use to some 40 C to 45 C. Next month i go back my home for some days. Month of may is said to be a terrible time as the sun is at its peaks in India and almost everything is fuming. People find out several ways to adapt themselves to such hot weather. In kolkata it's worse as its hot and extremely humid, you keep sweating and you go tried in just minutes. Am getting myself ready to fight with summer. But before the war begins i just want to enjoy the spring here in Germany to its fullest. Therefore i prepared some spring fritatta.  As the name suggests all colorful vegetables goes into this dish.

Hainanese Rice(Singapore Style)

Hainanese chicken rice. Served with gobi manchurian and a glass of apple juice.

I have been hunting for some other ways to prepare the flavored rice other than the regular biryani and fried rice. This led me to search for some east Asian food and to my luck i found this really awesome recipe. This is basically served with chicken or a combination of sauce but i gave it a twist and served it with cauliflower Manchurian. This rice goes perfect with any spicy curry or veggies or any meat.

Gobi Manchurian(Cauliflower Manchurian)

Gobi Manchurian

I am a great fan of Indo -Chinese cuisine. I have always loved all kinds of Manchurian dishes. Say it and i start craving for them. I love Chicken Manchurian, Vegetable Manchurian and Gobi Manchurian.  For the add on with this Manchurian i prepared some famous singapore recipe, Hainanese Rice.
This flavoured rice is a add-on for the saucy dish.

French Beans and Potato Stir Fry Curry

French beans are one of my favorite vegetable. I really like them in noodles , spaghetti  and also in mix vegetable. But today i prepared the french beans with potato, the stir fry style. My mom prepares the beans curry which is always the best. I really like the beans curry gravy with chapati and rice.
My mom's kitchen garden bean plants where like super plants. On a plot of 2 meter square they yielded like 2 to 3 kilo grams of beans per day. Everyday i plucked them and i would also pluck some tender ones with a thought that the next day these plant doesn't make me work again so much. But to my dismay i had to just keep plucking them the other day also.I just miss my good old days and those super plants. Now i don't even get to see kitchen garden any more. These days like all i head to the supermarkets and grab a kilo of them at an obvious high rate.
