Beetroot Kurma recipe |Side dish for chapati

Kurma| korma is an easy side dish for chapathi | poori. I have posted many chapathi side dish recipes and kurma variaties, but for the first time, I am trying kurma with one of my favorite veggie beetroot. If you are not a beetroot lover, try the same kurma with mixed vegetables or peas or paneer. My mom is a regular viewer of the Venkatesh bhat show and she was hooked by his kurma recipe. This episode was telecasted almost an year back. From then she was telling me to try this recipe but finally i tried the same style by replacing veggies with beetroot and green peas. We all loved the recipe and it paired well with poori and chapathi too. I am back from my 3 weeks vacation to chennai. Slowly coming back to routine. Stay tuned for interesting recipes coming for this Pongal season.

Filipino fruit salad | Easy dessert recipes

Filipino fruit salad |Buko salad, is similar to the Indian fruit cream recipe. This easy and exotic dessert was introduced to me by my helper Joann, 2 years back. Also the mango float recipe also she only taught me. Most of my guests had tasted this yummy dessert and tried at home too. I made this for the guests who came for my cookery show in London. Everyone was impressed by this surprise dessert and asked me for the recipe. And many guests who tasted this asked me whether i have this recipe of fruit salad in jeyashris kitchen, so finally i have made this one day to make a post . In this recipe i used the tinned fruit cocktail, where as you can replace with fresh fruits like pineapple, pomegranate, grapes, mango and apple. Do not use fruits which are very sour. Also i have used the nata de coco, which i get here in tetra packs in the local Singapore fair price shops. You can chop the tender coconut meat (ilaneer thengai) and add to this. Try out this easy dessert recipe and impress your family and guests. A perfect dessert for potluck parties, where you can make this ahead and keep it in the refrigerator, as it tastes best when chilled.

Garlic rasam recipe with coconut milk| Rasam recipes

Poondu rasam with coconut milk

Garlic rasam with coconut milk, an aromatic south Indian rasam recipe, even can be had as a soup. Few weeks back we have my cousins here and  we roamed around the city crazily and had loads of fun with them. As we all are foodies, while talking about rasam, my cousin shared with me this recipe of garlic rasam with coconut milk, which she learnt from her mil. Though i make garlic rasam regularly and also posted the recipe long back, this version sounds so different and interesting. I tried the garlic rasam yesterday and it turned out very well. The rasam accompanied by hot rice and potato curry was totally out of the world. Try this rasam for this cool weather and let me know how it turned out.
