Vankaya Pakodi Kura is a traditional Andhra dish made with brinjal and deep fried besan fritters often served during wedding or other special occasions. My recipe is slightly contrary to the original recipe, as the original calls for deep frying brinjal pieces. Its upto you, either deep fry or saute… whichever you choose the final dish will still look good and taste great.

Lima Beans or Butter Beans is a good source of cholesterol lowering fiber. This factor prevents blood sugar levels from rising too rapidly after a meal, making these beans an especially good choice for individuals with diabetes, insulin resistance or hypoglycemia. Taking them on a regular basis is good for your health. These beans are sweet and very starchy.. suits well for any gravy or saute type of dishes. Recipe shown here is my attempt to introduce this flavourful beans to my family in the form of Poriyal / saute with coconut lentil combination. . . . → Read More: Lima Beans Poriyal
Avial is a well known Kerala side-dish for rice. And also a Kanyakumari favourite. The aroma that arises when my grandmother cooks it in a mud pot, still lingers around. It differs from the traditional recipe in just one way - she cooked it without adding curd. And so here is Tamil Nadu's version.

Brinjal Chops is just another fancy name for " Stuffed Brinjal curry /Ennai kathrikkai", this recipe has been already shared by me but this version is slightly different and its close to the one served with biryani by catering agencies. My recipe shared here is something which I learned from a Muslim bhai who caters biryani for special occasion's and its typical tamizh Muslim style. They prepare these with black sesame seeds, never add any garam masala and brinjal's don't get be stuffed, instead they are chopped lengthwise and literally float in sesame oil.

My husband was all praises for this snack which he used to get in the IIT canteen when he was in mumbai. He was asking me to try this recipe for a long time which i did finally. I had no idea what it tasted llike or what ingredients it had, and my husband couldnt do much help. So with the name as guidance i used my own formula and it came out sucessfully as a clone to the original recipe. This would make a yummy evening tea time snack or a surprise lunchbox snack for kids. . . . → Read More: Maggi Bonda
