Simple Mushroom Appetizers/Starters Recipe | Lemon Zest Mushroom Fry

Huh… these days I can see myself transforming into a cookaholic wife, for, the husband asks for ‘variety’ in taste. So I had to incarnate in the form of …say… a Marie Curie! Experimenting with different produce…. different recipes….different cooking techniques and so on in my kitchen lab…! The best part is when my Pierre Curie [yeah, you should understand it’s the husband] assist me with some ideas and cooking tricks into the dishes! Being a blogger you should understand that I cook with a camera hanging from my neck, holding it for a perfect shot every time I add in any ingredients during the cooking process. While my eyes will be glued to the camera’s viewfinder and my right hand glued to the shutter release button, I will be needing assistance in, say, to spoon the ingredients into the wok or to grab the right spatula from the kitchen… Continue reading »

Puliyodharai paste recipe ~ Home-made Puliyogare mix ~ Pulikachal

Sourashtra-style Puliyodharai mix ~ Pulikachal ~ South-Indian Tamarind Rice paste Haven’t we chatted on Sourashtrian Cuisine in one of my earlier posts? This is yet another post that will boast about their dishes. Right from my childhood, I had liked and enjoyed many of their dishes, especially variety rice; Puliyodharai, Lemon Rice, Tomato Rice, Venpongal, Sambar and more. This Pulikachal recipe is one among those dishes that I learnt from my friends here. It is different from what we normally make because this pulikachal recipe requires no roasting or grinding job. A very simple puliyogare paste recipe that tastes HEAVVVVENLY! Truly! We lived in a street where there used to be several Sourashtra neighbors. We also had many friends at school, who were also sourashtra. Those times, we used to go out for dinner almost on every Sundays. Or Appa will get parcels from one of the many sourashtrian restaurants… Continue reading »
