Suzhiyam, Suyam, Seeyam Recipe


          Suzhiyam/Suyam is one sweet that my mother never misses to make on Diwali, but for some reason, I never made it at all till now. This year, I made it for Diwali, but of course, I didn't get a chance to post it then, since I made it on the festival day, but I managed to take some pictures. This is an easy dish, and if you like sweets made with jaggery, then you will definitely like this..

Methi Moong Dal Sabzi, Fenugreek Leaves With Lentils


          Every week, I get a bunch of fresh organic methi, and I was browsing the web for a new dish that I can try out with it, when I came across this Methi Moong Dal Sabzi, fresh fenugreek leaves cooked with moong dal. The recipe is a simple stir fry and in fact I didn't expect it to taste this good, it goes very well with rotis but you can serve it as a part of a South Indian meal too..

100% Whole Wheat Bread With Flax Seeds


          100% Whole Wheat Bread, I already have a version of it here on my blog, but I was always looking for a better and different version. I was thinking about adding some flax seed powder to the bread dough and then I came across this recipe for whole wheat bread using egg, and of course a little bread flour was used in the recipe. I didn't want to use egg and also I didn't want to use bread flour or all purpose flour, so after trying out a couple of times, I finally arrived at the perfect bread ( at least for the time being, if I find another version, I'll surely blog about it here). I have used organic whole wheat/ atta for making the bread and I have used instant yeast for baking. Because of the milk and flax seeds ued, the bread was much softer, less denser and less crumbly than the previous 100% Whole Wheat Bread, do give this a try..

Spinach Soup, Keerai (Palak) Soup


          Today's post is going to be a simple and healthy soup with spinach. I had made pizza for lunch and since we can add only so much vegetables to it, I wanted to make a salad or soup on the side to compensate for that. I had got fresh organic spinach that day, so decided to make the soup with it. As always, when I am cooking spinach, I like to keep the flavors simple without too many spices and masalas, so this soup also has just some grated garlic and pepper for flavor and some Parmesan cheese for a little taste and richness..
