Rice And Paneer Cutlets


          Today's post is once again for the ' Shhhhh Cooking Secretly ' event, I was supposed to cook and post it for last month, but then, since my kitchen was getting renovated, I couldn't do it till last week. I was paired with Shama of Easy2Cook Recipes and she had given me rice and paneer as the secret ingredients. I didn't think too much, the moment the ingredients were given, the first thing that came to my mind was these cutlets. I used leftover rice, paneer along with some capsicum and onion and spices and then shaped them into these cutlets. Since I wanted to keep it healthy, I shallow fried them, they turned out super delicious, it can be served with some green coriander chutney, but I served them with just some tomato sauce, perfect evening snack..

Stuffed Ridge Gourd (Peerkangai, Beerakaya,Turai)


          This month, for the ' Shhhhh Cooking Secretly Challenge ' event ( started by Priya ), I was paired up Sangee Vijay of Spicy Treats, and she had given me ridge gourd and cabbage as the two ingredients. I don't have to give an introduction for Sangee, she is well known in the blogger community and her blog has so many delicious recipes, and also, she is one of the first few people to comment and encourage me in my beginning days of blogging. Coming to the ingredients, I was slightly skeptical, both of them vegetables and I was not sure how I was going to combine them in a dish. Then the idea of stuffing the ridge gourd popped up, I have seen a lot of recipes, most of them used a peanut based stuffing, I thought I could use the cabbage as a stuffing. The dish turned out absolutely delicious, the cabbage stuffing tasted really good with the ridge gourd, we had it with rotis and dal but I am sure, it would go well with rice too..

Godhumai Roti, Wheat Flour Roti ( Adai )


          I have always made rotis, parathas, pooris and dosas using whole wheat flour, I have heard about this Godhumai Roti/Adai, but never gave it a try until a couple of weeks back. The roti/adai is very easy to make, I have added some sauteed onions, chopped coriander, coconut to the whole wheat flour to make a soft dough and made the rotis, even beginners who find it difficult to make soft chappathis can make this. They came out really soft and stayed that way even when cold, and tasted great with some tomato thokku or pickle, try these rotis/adais when you want a change from the regular chappathis..

Carrot Rice With Kuthiraivali (Barnyard Millet)


          My new kitchen is all done and I was slightly busy with arranging everything back, so I couldn't post for the last couple of days. Have to start cooking and clicking, it's been a long time now, almost more than a month. Coming to today's dish, I had made it, some time back, for lunch, a simple and healthy recipe with millets, I have used Kuthiraivali/Barnyard Millet and carrots, actually, while making it, I was not very sure and almost expected it to turn out mushy like carrot pongal, but it came out very good, the final dish had the perfect texture and taste..
