Horse Gram / Kollu seeds are generally known to us as cattle feed but its also good for our health. Great remedy for cold, cough and body aches. Good source of protein and iron. Most of all helps in loosing weight. Lets steal atleast few of those good qualities by including it in our diet atleast once a week. Rasam will be one good choice to start with when you introduce this legume to your family.

Few days back, I got lucky to find drumstick leaves at Patel Bros and they were surprisingly fresh. I couldn't resist my hands grabbing a few stalks… here we are not talking bunches as they are extremely expensive. So picked about 6 long stalks which should be sufficient to feed 3 adults. I remember the moment I left the store, after that, my mind was filled with thoughts as to how to prepare these healthy greens. My top pick was preparing it as poriyal which we serve with rice. This keerai is a familiar side for Kezhvaragu Koozh.
No introduction needed for this item, just gather the ingredients, grab your pots and pans and start cooking……….. enjoy the feast !!

Adyar grand sweets is one of the favorite spots which we never miss during our visit to India. We usually buy a lot of sweets, savories and pickles/thokkus, pack them for our return trip. This malli thokku is similar to the ones which we get there, a great side for almost anything. One down side though- 2 bunches for coriander will yield only about a 200 grams of thokku which is about 3/4 of a regular pickle bottle. This thokku has longer shelf life, if kept at room temperature will last for about 2 weeks and for about 1 month when refrigerated.
A huge pack of Idli rava was sleeping in my pantry.., guess it might be the same with many of you too. I couldn't think of anything productive other than turning them to Hotel Idlis. Well, home made idlis with regular idli rice are whiter, spongy and soft. Whereas these Rava idlis…when steamed turn out to be slightly yellowish, soft but bulgy. They turn out to be like the ones which we get in restaurants. Mostly these are kind of staple in many telugu households but to us or atleast me they remind me of hotel idlis.
A Very rich mughlai curry loved by my family.
