Malai Peda Recipe


 Hi Friends
 Hope you all are doing good..After a very short break of 10 days i am back to blogging  now. I took break as I am not feeling well and now I am ok with my health and happy to be back.
I am back with a sweet recipe,Malai Peda Classic Indian sweets. Pedas are me and my sister's favorite one..My Perima makes peda with fresh milk and we will fight each other to divide our share :) so funny days...My mom learnt from her and make it only on special occasions. we love it a lot. Malai Peda is little different in taste and is more rich, delicious than simple Doodh Pedas. Very easy and simple recipe and it taste divine and melts in mouth...so delicious one..Malai pedas can be made in different ways i made it with milk and condensed milk. I got this recipe from here.

Vegetable Omelet Paniyaram


        I am not much fond of omelet,but my Hubby's favorite..most of his breakfast will be simple omelet and banana or any sandwich & a fruit. My kids also not fond of omelet they like only scrambled or pepper fried eggs...but when I made this omelet in paniyaram pan with mixed vegs,they really liked it very much n finished it off in no minutes and also my son called it as "egg vadai" :) Eggs are rich in protein and is one of the highest quality protein found in any food.Eggs are very good for growing children.


Green Beans Thoran (with Coconut Masala)


       Usually I do not add coconut to my poriyals/stir fry instead I add cooked tuvar dal or moongdal to it. But after trying Chitra's Okra Aviyal recipe, i just love the coconut masala very much and also it gives nice flavor, great taste to the dish. I can't stop cooking without that coconut masala. I altered the recipe to my taste and we loved it very much...so yummy. This Green Beans Thoran goes well with rasam and curd rice.
