Egg Dum Biryani Recipe | Easy Egg Dum Biryani | Egg Biryani Recipe

Egg Dum Biryani Recipe
Egg Dum Biryani or Egg Biryani using Dum Method is a flavor rich and delicious Biryani and my kids favorite biryani too. Some how this Egg Dum Biryani tastes similar to the Restaurant style Dum Biryani. This is the recipe I recently cooked for blog and the Egg Biryani turned out pretty well.
I usually prefer one pot method for cooking Biryani, that is cooking rice and gravy together with all spices, herbs and vegetables or meat in one pot method. As, this method is easy and quick and the entire biryani can be done in 30 minutes or less.

Mango Pineapple Smoothie Recipe | Easy Mango Smoothie With Pineapple

Mango Pineapple Smoothie
Today's recipe is a delicious and refreshing smoothie using the tropical fruits - Mango and Pineapple. This smoothie requires only 3 ingredients - Fruits, Ice cubes & Simple Syrup. This Mango Pineapple Smoothie is similar to the Jamba Juice' smoothies. Here, Jamba Juice is popular for their fresh fruit smoothies. There is no artificial color and flavors added to the smoothies. We love all their fruit combo smoothies and this Mango Pineapple is our most favorite of all. I simply recreated this smoothie at house following their method, as they make smoothies in front of our eyes. This is almost a year old post in my draft and finally managed to post it this summer.  Enjoy this refreshing and healthy smoothie before the tropical fruit season ends,

Aloo Tikki / Stuffed Aloo Tikki Chaat recipe with step by step photos. I have already shared the recipe for Aloo Tikki/How to Make Aloo Tikki, this is slightly different from that recipe. Here, i used stuffed aloo tikkis for chaat. For stuffing I used Whole moong/Green Moong but you can also use yellow moong or plain aloo tikkis to make tikki chaat. Likewise, adding yogurt/curd to chaat is purely optional.

Mini Pepper Podi Idli | Pepper Podi Idli Recipe | Milagu Podi Idli Recipe

Pepper Podi Idli
Milagu Podi Idli / Mini Pepper Idli Recipe is a simple kids friendly breakfast or lunch box recipe. You can even serve this as a after school snack for kids. This is almost similar to my Podi Idli except the addition of freshly crushed black pepper. I made this long back when my kid was caught with cold and cough. I wanted to have him Milagu Rasam and Rice but he doesn't like rasam rice and asked whether he could have idli, so suddenly this idea came to my mind and the Milagu Podi Idli was super hit with kids and they loved it a lot. You don't even need any special side dish for this ildi, just  a ketchup is enough. But you can also serve with Tiffin Sambar or Chutney.

Chicken Chalna Recipe | Hotel Style Chicken Chalna Recipe | Chicken Chalna For Parotta

Chicken Chalna Recipe
I thought, after sharing my pain with my friends and readers, I will feel bit better but it didn't helped me. I only felt so down and weak, not able to do any thing. Past two days went simply sitting and crying, today somehow pushed myself and started writing this post. Coming to the recipe, Chicken Chalna or Chicken Salna is a spicy south Indian Style Chicken Gravy that is served with Parotta or Idli /Dosa or even with Biryani. This Chicken Chalna recipe is my Mom's recipe and she got this recipe from a Parotta Master who lived as our neighbor in my Home Town. He just gave the hint of the recipe and she recreated it perfectly. This Chalna is tend to be darker in color which we couldn't with natural spices. I think they may use some artificial color to get that deep greenish brown colored gravy. Other wise the taste was similar to the hotel chalna. Instead of Chicken, You can even use vegetables to make vegetable chalna. Now off to the recipe...

Indo-Chinese Veg Fried Rice Recipe | Vegetable Fried Rice Recipe | Restaurant Style Veg Fried Rice(Indo-Chinese Style)

Veg Fried Rice Recipe
Amma/Mom, the word itself gives so much happiness, energy and hope to life. No one and nothing can compensate a Mom and her unconditional love and care. I lost my MOM  on May 20th 2016 due to sudden cardiac arrest at the age of just 50. I never thought that I will not meet her forever.
It is one month now but I am in that same state of shock, pain, fear and loss. I have no good reason to console myself and stay strong. She is not that much old or not sick person. On May 19th night 9.45 pm India Time, I spoke to her and she was normal happy and excited because of her daughter( My sis) and grand daughter's arrival. It was only a 13 minutes conversation, usually our call will not end before 2 hours but that day I wasn't feeling well  with severe dizziness and headache that i couldn't lift my head. So she felt sad for me and told me to take rest and said, that she will call me in the morning to check how I am doing.
