Karuvepillai Baby Corn Masala / Baby Corn & Curry Leaves Curry

Karuvepillai Baby Corn Masala, a south-Indian style twist to regular baby corn masala, cooked to perfection with curry leaves and coriander seeds masala. This is one flavorful masala which I've tried with rajma / kidney beans, paneer, egg, chicken, mutton and prawn. Though we are using same masala, the taste differs when combined with any of the above mentioned ingredients. Lets check the recipe,

Burnt Garlic Fried Rice / Meal Maker & Gobi Fried Rice, a complete one pot meal which contains cauliflower, soya chunks and flavored with smoky garlic. You can image how flavorful it would be. Though, I have added garam masala, it doesn't dominate. Instead of cauliflower, you can try this with broccoli, paneer, egg, chicken or prawns.
Burnt Garlic Rice was in my to-do list for long time and finally I made it for tonight's dinner and served with Egg Masala. This recipe is very simple to follow and doesn't require much ingredients. I made equal ratio of vegetable and rice (1:1). You can either increase the rice quantity or decrease vegetable quantity. I made it very simple, by not adding more vegetables like carrot, beans or spring onion. The hero of this recipe is garlic. Cauliflower gives crunchiness and soya chunks looks more like chicken to me :) I had previously shared Indian Style Paneer Fried Rice and Chinese Style Egg Fried Rice.

Chimli Urundai Recipe / Ragi & Sesame Seeds Balls


Ragi Til Ladoo / Chimli Urundai, a healthy and traditional ladoo recipe made from Ragi, Sesame Seeds and Peanuts. For sweetness, we are adding Karupati Vellam / Palm Jaggery. Overall, these sweet balls can be enjoyed by any age group people starting from kids to elders. 
My mom's friend shared this recipe with me. And she mentioned that in Vellore side, they also call it as Ellu Urundai. I had only 1/2 cup black sesame seeds, so I made use of white sesame seeds too. This recipe is simple to follow. You need to prepare ragi roti and break into pieces and grind it with roasted peanuts, sesame seeds and jaggery. For variations, replace peanuts with almond. You can also add 1 tbsp cocoa powder to make it chocolatey. 
Here, I made use of Homemade Ragi flour, which gives an awesome flavor. Slowly, I'm making an habit to prepare all kind of flours from scratch. Check out another traditional sweet varieties which i learnt from my grandma, Kuluku Roti & Porulvilangai Urundai / Multigrain Ladoo. Lets check the recipe,
