My hubby Loves broccoli a lot but he is not a big fan of cauliflower so I usually subsititute broccoli instead of cauliflower in some recipes.I like Gobi ka paratha a lot as to suit my family I made Broccoli paratha and they enjoyed it a lot. This is lying in my draft for so long I thought it time to clean up my drafts first. This a perfect healthy lunch box you will enjoyed making as it tastes so yumm. My daughter doesn't like broccoli as is so stuffed Paratha's is wonderful way to hide the ingredients and give her ;) . Lets quickly move on to the recipe.

Chaats always my fav , no street food can beat Indian spicy chaat corners. I and husband love to have any chaat it might be, one of our recent fav is Chole tikki chaat . I thought of trying it at home and we just couldn't stop us from digging in. There many variation of Chole chaat with samosa, kachoris, even masala vadai i have tried and even with Tikki . Chaats look so simple but there is so many ingredients to be included makes it delicious. Even though the process might be long when it comes to chaat this is a very simple dish to cook. This is one among the popular street food, some tikki are made with a filling for this chaat which taste yummier even but i made a simple version. Lets quickly move the chaat recipe.

My first encounter of this yummy snack was Thripathi , though we are jains we do pray all gods, for people living in chennai is visiting thripathi balaji temple is a mandatory. My father used to take us to this temple at least once a year after him didn't really get a chance to go there. Am eagerly waiting for India trip so that I visit the temple and also taste the garam bhel which so popular in winter there, you can see many men having a garam pori basket set as i did the images which is just a miniature basket I have tried to place. Few days back we had this 5 days of black and white photography challenge and planned to set this miniature bhel basket and take the BW challenge for one day.

If you want your kids to indulge in cooking and helping then this is the perfect treat for them to Do it them self and making them proud . My daughter enjoyed making them and enjoyed snacking them. I love to work with my kidoo and this one memorable treat we enjoyed making. I actually made them for Christmas to blog but I just got to blog them now. I love making quick treat for kids and this one is just super with only 2-3 ingredients . They are super easy, you can make them in minutes if you have all the ingredients available. I gave them a snowmen look for this season you can even customize as needed. Anyway it is decorated kids will just enjoy them. Lets quickly move on to the recipe.
Puffy Poori's are always my fav with spicy curries. For a change I tried it more colorful way. If you have been to blog before you will know how well I connect with colorful dishes, I simply love any rainbow inspired food or colorful food attract me a lot. So I was planning to make poori on fine fine day had some spinach and beetroots ding !!! ( a bulb glows) and taadaaaa you can see the result. Pinwheel poori are now my fav. I wanted click them when they where till puffy but couldn't succeed I had to take them any way. It is sure gonna attract kids as my kidoo was "wooowww I want to eat them now", as she same as me loves anything which looks attractive. I know I have been not so regular in blogging but missed to blog every day.

Pongal is a 4 day harvest festival celebrated in tamil nadu , the place I was born and bought up ..In north it is celebrated in the name of makar sakranti / Lohri . Pongal is on 15th I have some nostalgic memories about this festival. The first day of pongal was meant to burn all the unwanted accessories in our home , so when we wake in the morning it was all smoky in the morning .As we were surrounded my tamil makkal the night before pongal my neighbors used put beautiful rangoli's which we loved to watch. We as a kid used to wait for this festival to taste the ganna/ sugar cane we just loved to use our teeth to peel all the sugar cane skin and just chew the juice was so much fun, our neighbors were always kind enough to share pongal and the palagaram they made with us and the whole day we used to keep on munching some pongal delicacies , Miss those times.
