Prawn curry in coconut milk

Today’s lunch was trully mind-blowing and reminded my best memories of childhood.Out of all the one my mind loves the most is coconut curry .

It just takes coconut kernels ,fresh cream,tiger prawns,salt,Termeric,sugar,white mustard a bit

Take oil in a pan > fry prawns > add salt> Termeric > pinch of sugar > add mixture of coconut kernel paste mixed with white mustard paste > let it be for few minutes to fry all together and get gel with each other and boil as well.A nice smell will indicate completion of the dish.Takw time and keep all it in a very low flame ..

Time to enjoy

Winter has come!


Though my city feels heat most of the times this time people are enjoying winter,enjoying momos ,wearing Christmas hats ,coffee and midnight snacks more than last few years.I have faith on myself for midnight coffees but for momos i rely on nearby counters.Drinking too much coffee/green tea may cause lack of sleep some times.Winter comes with variety of vegetables,fruits .You will get ample cabbage ,turnip,cauliflower,broccoli, beans,green peas etc.My favorite is cauliflower out of all :)Nothing can replace the fun of enjoying fried cauliflowers / typical pakora of cauliflower

Winter has come earlier.blankets has got freedom from shelves and being used frequently,Coffee jars are being re-filled soon ๐Ÿ˜€


but often our skin feels dryness,itchiness and lack of moisture in winters .Try to use natural stuffs like milk,light oils

Being eggetarian for the day : A break from green vegetables ;)

I badly needed a break from green vegetables .Though fish,red meat was calling me like anything I made a way to escape using eggs only

Dimer kosha

This is a typical ‘bong’ spicy recipe of egg which takes 15-20 mins of yours

1.Boil eggs

2.Heat non stick / kadhai and pour oil to heat there

3.Fry pieces of potatoes and egg till it becomes brown and keep it aside

Frying eggs causes the white skin crisper and that appears more tasty to me.

4.Heat oil ,add bay leaf ,cardamom ,sugar,dried red chili and fry it till some nice smell comes

5.Add chopped onion,tomato and fry it till it becomes brown.Add garam masala,cumin powder,coriander powder ,salt,turmeric and fry till oil comes out of the it

6.Now add fried eggs,potatoes to it and keep mixing Make sure its not over fried

7.Once masala,egg, potatoes are fried those become reddish brown .Pour some water (as per your taste)and mix it properly to make the gravy.Heat the entire thing

8.Garnishing : All fresh coriander leaves before serving

* Quantity of all ingredients to vary depending on no.of people to be served and their taste *

This dish goes well with steamed rice an salad

Try it and let me know how it is ๐Ÿ™‚

OMG ! MY first post is being published

Cant cook without these spatulas

Still canโ€™t believe that I am towards publishing my first post ..I feel like I am thousand kilometers away from a crowded city where I used to go through a tough grindingย  session of deadlines every day ๐Ÿ˜‰ Its like a blessing of peace to me ..

Well, I know I will get support from majority if I will say its tough to dine with a (100%) veggie being a food lover who cant live without oily ,spicy meat and order different foods for the same single table ! Seems like it was an incident of yesterday when I used to scream even thinking of a plate in front of me with green fried vegetables even without smell / color of animal protein but now I also make eatable complete vegetarian foods.

After God I must say thanks to my husband who had always bear with (still doing so!) my chemical reactions .I mean stuffs (or food to be served as dinner / lunch)created during a chemical process which is termed as cooking to me ! ๐Ÿ˜€ He always had a faith that one day I will make something eatable with adequate salt ,sugar, turmeric..His reaction is changing every day after our dinner so I feel like I am close to my target
