Recipes relished and devoured!!!

Hey folks! Hope alls well at every ones end. Been a while since I put up my last post.... I've been in these weird moods in the past few days, and I feel like doing nothing, but sleep!  Cooking has been taking a back seat too. I have been making only the simplest of recipes that don't take more than 30-40 mins of time. Here are some of them that I picked from different blogs. I have tried the dishes myself, and enjoyed them thoroughly! Hope you guys like them too!!

  1. Nupur's Khichdi-Kadhi: This is indeed a comfort food!!! Just perfect for the times when you want something soothing and not to spicy.... It is just perfect for all occasions!! I really loved the way Nupur describes the authentic and traditional way of making Khichdi.... I HAD to try this one!! This one also goes out to my reader and friend,  Sonal, who has been asking me for this recipe since a long time....Enjoy!!
  2. Latha's Potato Stir Fry: Well, this one was exactly what I wanted.... Something simple, yet very different!! The white sesame seeds (Til in Hindi- Ellu in Kannada) added a unique flavor to this stir fry. A great accompaniment with rice-rasam or curd rice!!
  3. Manjula's Batate Song: Batate means Potato in Konkani, and Batate Song is an authentic mangalorean Konkani dish. The aroma of coconut oil blended with onions and potatoes brought back old memories... I made this with Akki Rotti and it was a great combo!!
  4. Nav's Taro Root Curry: Taro Root (called Kesavina Gedde in Kannada) is a new veggie to me. Somehow my mom never made anything with it anytime.... Or maybe she did, and me being very picky about food, just chose to ignore it and never bothered to taste.... :D. Anyway, one of my friends was mentioning about taro root and it was only then that I noticed this veggie in the market. I picked up a couple of them and tried this curry. It was indeed good.... Tangy and sweet!!! Goes really well with rice...
  5. EC's Jeera Aloo: As you all know, aloo is very versatile and one of the easiest veggies to cook. So, I ended up choosing one more aloo dish and it turned out yummy too!! You can barely go wrong with such simple and yummy recipes... Tastes great with rotis or even just rice.
  6. Ashakka's Brussels Sprouts Fry: This one was super easy... and tasted great too!!! I had made rasam to go with it and it was a splendid combo!! But for this recipe of Ashakka, I would never have tried Brussels sprouts.. Thank you!! :)

Well, I don't have any pictures to go with the recipes, but the authors definitely have them on their posts and that should help.... Thanx again dear bloggers for sharing such lovely recipes!
