Rajmah curry(Kidney beans curry)

Kidney beans are quite popular everywhere. I just love this rajmah curry with rice. It is a superb combination. I know like me there are many rajmah curry fans.
This dish is quite popular in Indian restaurants. My hubby loves it and therefore i prepare it every now and then. Preparing it becomes easier with the canned kidney beans. Otherwise the kidney beans need to be soaked in water overnight and then boiled before it can be assembled along with the spices.

Kadhi pakoda(Fritters in yogurt gravy, Kadhi curry)

I remember one of my Punjabi neighbour who prepared mouth watering kadhi pakoras. This curry is  a total inspiration from her. I learnt many more punjab special dishes from her like cabbage paratha, aloo paratha and sarson ka saag recipe. Anyways my hubby likes having Kadhi with rice. The gravy turns out to be so simple yet serene in taste. At times i skip preparing dal along with rice instead i prepare this kadhi for a change.
Try this aloo pakoda kadhi and enjoy this dish.

Rawa Idli- Quick microwave recipe

Idli is the king of South Indian Breakfast but the whole country have it every now and then. This rice and lentil steamed dumpling is a great way to start the day. The side dish like coconut chutney and sambar makes the meal complete. Its a solution for fast food. I remember back in Bangalore whenever i could not have my breakfast at home i would rush to my office canteen to grab a plate of idli. This plate of idli would make me not feel hungry until the lunch time and thus helped me to concentrate on my work.
