Pachadi, Radish

Mullangi Pachadi

Radish as we call it as in English. Suitable for hot plain rice or any Rice dish. It has got a unique taste to it . Some people do not like Mooli / Radish because of the smell after it is cooked. In this dish though the smell is not present and the taste is superb.


7 Cup Burfi

This is popular sweet in bengaluru and mysore, my native place in India. Everybody must be wondering when you saw the header l “7 Cup Sweet” as to why it is called so ?
Ans : In this sweet we use different ingredients on each cups and each ingredient is of 1 cup measurement or more. So it is called 7 cup. This is similar in taste like mysore pak. Most of the people make this instead of mysore pak becoz mysore pak is difficult to make compare to this. Some people make both.

Corn, Roti

Corn Roti

In South India (especially Karnataka) almost everyone makes or knows rice /akki rotti and finger millet / ragi rotti. This i have made using corn flour. Lovely brunch i would say. Very Healty too. Very tasty with some spicy coconut chutney. Definitely try in your kitchen. Easy to prepare & not much ingredients.

Pineapple, Side Dish

Pineapple Gojju

Pineapple Gojju is another type of Gojju with different ingredients and different taste rather than normal gojju recipe which I have posted. This is very rarely made at home. Normaly this is made in functions most of the time I have had it in marriages ( including mine too). You can use same masala ingredients which is used in the Okra Gojju Recipe.


Simple Aloo Chaat

This is a simple fast food. This chaat i have made on my own. This dish can be made as a starter item. It’s a very easy & simple dish. Bachelors can make this when they want to eat some spicy food without.


Rice Flakes Chivda

In my kitchen pantry..there is a box full of plain corn flakes. Bored to have the plain ones..Then i got an idea why dont i try making chivda using these instead of rice flakes(poha).

I made it and within 2 days it was finished off…Loved by my family… I made it a wee-bit spicy.. I am sure kids will enjoy it too.
