Onion Kara Chutney Recipe

Onion Kara Chutney is an easy chutney that can be prepared in 10 minutes. No fancy ingredients just regular red onion is fine and is perfect accompaniment for Idli / Dosa / Adai / Paniyarams. I prepared this chutney to go with Wheat Adai Dosai/Dalia Adai Dosai. I used Guntur Chillies so the chutney got nice color and it was spicy too.

Egg Bhurji Recipe is an easy and very simple side dish for Paratha Phulka , Chapathi and even as a Sandwich filling for Bread. Egg Bhurji is one of my most favorite side dish for rotis and this dish has some sweet childhood memories. One of my dear friend brings Egg Bhurji & Plain Paratha for lunch almost everyday. But she never ate her Paratha & Bhurji for lunch because me and my other friends will finish it off even before lunch breakπŸ˜‚ and we gave our lunch(mostly rice dishes or Idlis) to her. My Friend's Mom' Egg Bhurji is unbeatable. I tried my best to recreate Her recipe and the bhurji turned out as good as Her's. But can't beat Mom's preparation rt?! This recipe of Egg Bhurji requires lots of onion and tomato which needs to be saute in oil nice and soft, so that the Egg gets cooked well with the masala and the bhurji will be juicy without dry scrambled eggs texture. Do checkout the video and try it this way and am sure you gonna love it.

After a long time sharing an authentic South Indian Curry/ Kuzhambu Variety - Kara Kuzhambu Recipe.

I used Homemade Kuzhambu Milagai Thool & Coriander Powder. Kuzhambu turned out so good and the bright red color due to Guntur Byadagi Chillies was so appetizing and we enjoyed it with hot rice & Sutta Appalam/Fire roasted papads. Kara Kuzhambu color, taste and flavor everything was amazing and much much better than Hotel Kara Kuzhambu. Not exaggerating just try it and am sure you will accept my words πŸ˜€

Chilli Cheese Sandwich is a very simple breakfast recipe which my kids loved most. I prefer to keep the sandwich filling simple with just Onion & Capsicum alone and extra green chillies for the spiciness to balance the richness from mozzarella cheese.

Adjust chilli and spices to your taste and also you can add more veggies like carrot, tomato and some boiled corn kernels.
