There are few food items which make you drool, when you see the pics or in movies..In a typical bollywood setting, you would find these amazing pedal/laddu's on the aarti thali :).. Have always wished, i was right there to receive the prasad :D..This dessert is something i had bookmarked from here ages ago and finally got a chance to make it!

Necessity is the Mother of Invention they say..does that apply to our kitchens?? Have there been times, when you decide to cook something, only to realize that you dont have the ingredients to make the dish :).. What do you do?? Do you make an alternative dish or land up substituting a new ingredient, which becomes your signature dish, that everyone can stop raving about :D

Paruppu (Lentil) Usili is a very popular dish and is done on all auspicious occasions be it weddings or festivals! Its called Usili, when we powder the the lentil and mix it with veggies...The best part of this dish is, we can alternate the taste by using different veggies like beans, cluster beans, capsicum, banana flower or even broccoli :)..

The onset of August means its Festival time :))..Before marriage, i have absolutely not helped my amma for any preparations.. for me it was just a holiday.. She would be so annoyed.. that i sleep so late on a festival day.. being a girl how will i manage after marriage..how i should help & learn a little..It all fell on deaf ears :).. My only concern would be the festival food !!

Assuming, this would be my last day on Earth and i am given a choice of one dish that i can have..then it has to be Vatha Kozhambu and Potato Fry! I am sure, anybody who has ever tasted this will agree with me :)).. Unlike other sambhar / kozhambu the tamarind water is boiled for a very long time, till it shrinks and thickens ( vathardhu meaning to drain/ shrink), hence the name!

Raw Banana(Vazha is banana & kai means raw) Karamedu or Poriyal is one of the easiest things to make. You could prepare so many dishes of them..be it chips, bajji's, different types of karamedu..gosh!.

A lot of things has kept me occupied.. travel, shifting to a new place and blogging unfortunately took a back seat..I am sure i am the ' Forgotten Fossil' of the Blog world :D, but its never too late to get back right.. atleast thats what my mom s been telling me :) n here i am, with a revamp of an old posted recipe..

Kodbale is a Karnataka snack and an absolute favorite! Its pronounced as 'Code' Ba-le :).. I guess it has the shape of cow horn and when joined resembles a bangle, hence the name!! When i saw the Valli's ICC announcement for this month ( I know, she has been kind enough to still have me as a part of the group :)), it got me excited!!
