ROSE FALOODA POPSICLE RECIPE | EASY POPSICLE RECIPES

Falooda-popsicle
Rose falooda i wanted to post this in a tall glass like how it is served in restaurants. But twice while carefully bringing it from the kitchen to the clicking spot(living room) i spilled the ice cream on the top and so turned it into a popsicle. I wanted to post rose falooda in glass and kesar kulfi falooda in kulfi moulds, but it didn't work. Will post the kulfi falooda, also in sometime. I personally love that as it reminds of our Paal ice and semiya ice of our child hood days. While writing itself i am drooling. My daughter who is a big fan of rosemilk enjoyed this popsicle very much..

MINT LEMON JUICE | SUMMER COOLER RECIPES

Lemon mint juice
 Mint lemon cooler, i have tasted this first time at a cousin's place in chennai. When we went to her house she served us with this mint lemon juice. On seeing the vibrant green colour in a glass, i was bit reluctant to drink this as i felt it will be too strong. Turned out to my surprise, it tasted so awesome. Shamelessly, i asked for one more serving and relished every sip of it. Last week when i was picking fresh mint leaves from the market, this mint lemon juice flashed into my mind, and since the summer is in peak i thought it will be a refreshing one for the summer.

Cauliflower masala dosai I first taste some 20 years back when i was in school. My friend's sister got engaged and she took both of us to a famous restaurant in Madurai . In the menu board which was written outside as "Today's special", it was mentioned Cauliflower masala dosai. Though we always make masala dosa with potato, we tried this cauliflower masala dosa . It tasted very nice. In the past few years i tried this masala dosa few times at home but somehow couldn't click the pictures. Finally made this last week and clicked the pictures. Due  to some technical problems, i have given my laptop for servicing. Finally got it back yesterday . Will be resuming to routine from today. Thank you so much for your support.

Capsicum when added in most of the food will give aromatic and flavourful.  We generally add capsicum|bell pepper in sambar, fried rice, paratha and some times in raita too. This south indian style of carrot capsicum thayir pachadi will be a perfect combo vatha kuzhambu or sambar rice too. Instead of making some fried accompaniments for sambar, this raita| thayir pachadi will be a perfect accompaniment, especially for this summer.
