Podalangai Kootu with Coconut n it was hit with my kids too. And few weeks back, i wanted to make poriyal/fry with this veg and made this simple recipe. For this Poriyal i used Dalia(pottukadali)-Sesame powder which gives nice flavor n texture to this fry and also i like to add some cooked chana dal or moong dal to this poriyal n added chana dal this time. This goes well with any variety rice,curd rice,sambar sadham,rasam etc. I even love it with dosa n chapathi also. We had with curd n Tamarind rice(blogged soon). Now to the recipe...

Sliced Potato Fry. But for a change this time added 1/2 cup of chopped capsicum n masala powder to my fry. It was so flavorful n yummy, we had this potato capsicum fry with Mixed Beans Dhal Bhat. Very Simple Recipe, even kids will love this stir fry if it made less spicy. So please adjust spices to your taste. For this fry i used Yukon Gold Potatoes n Red Potatoes. Both tastes good for stir fry/curry/roasting. Now to the recipe...

For the Past two years, we faced so many health issues and we felt that we are recovering from all those problems but from last week i am having severe headache n dizziness. And on this Weekend i suffered lot due to Dizziness, went to Urgent Care n now in medications. Still Having headache and dizziness comes n goes. That's the reason i couldn't spend much time on Blogging n blog Hop. I couldn't sit and read , i feel like riding on a boat, n in worst condition the dizziness leads to vomiting n dehydration. Dr. told that theres no specific reason n no need to worry about it n will be alright within a week. Hoping for the best. I really really miss visiting other blogs for their recipes,pictures and writing. But still some of my blogger friends are more supportive n never fail to visit mine...They are very prompt but i couldn't be like that, So Sorry friends n don't mistake me will check your posts once i am back to normal. All my Blogging Marathon recipes for this week n next week were made ahead and even few were scheduled. So will be posting for the committed one and hope U all will continue your support n keep visiting my space. Thanks!!
Another session of BM starts today n for this week I have chosen the theme, Indian Basics. I should say that this is the first Basic recipe in my blog, so far I did not shared any such recipes, becoz of one main reason, h to click n present them?!. But after seeing this month's BM theme I decided its time for me to work on it n some how tried my best!! In that row, today we going to see Ginger Garlic paste, one of the main basic ingredient for most of the Indian curry, Biryani/Pulao, stir fry, gravies etc.

with unique combo of ingredients and very aromatic too. Ridge gourd-cilantro-cumin-coconut were the four main ingredients for this delicious Thogayal. It turned out awesome n such a delicious accompaniment for rice. We all loved it. After that i tried this chutney 3 four times, yes at least once in a week. I love this thogayal that much and totally forgot to use Ridge gourd in curry, pulao, chutney, Stir Fry form. We had this Thogayal for our lunch along with rice, Brinjal Roast & Paruppu Rasam. This goes well with curd rice also it tasted so so yummy...do give it a try, sure u will love it. Now to the recipe.

poriyal,sambar,n masiyal with dal n this recipe is without dal n very quick and easy too. I just love eating this keerai masiyal with rice n papad, so comfort n satisfying meal. This is my Mom's n Grand Mom's recipe, they use to make this masiyal with all types of greens/keerai. And also they use Homemade Thalippu Vadagam for tempering to this keerai masiyal, that really gives nice flavor n unique taste to the masiyal. But i don't have that in hand so did with usual tempering ingredients. I love adding more garlic to Keerai masiyal if u don't like you can skip or just add only 1 or 2 garlic cloves. The recipe as follows..
