Kootu a traditional South Indian rice accompaniment. This araichuvitta kootu is made with freshly ground masala, that gives it a lovely aroma and finger licking taste
Posting a lunch plate after eons!! On my plate here
🥗Carrot, apple and nectarine salad with crunchy walnuts
🥗sweet potato stir fry 🥗Cucumber raita
🥗quinoa cooked with mixed veggies, amaranth leaves and paneer.
.
Yes, I agree all you see is green leaves but trust me there is quinoa there! 2-3 tbsp quinoa cooked with a bunch of amaranth leaves and 1.5cups of mixed veggies(cauliflower, carrot, peas, capsicum) .
The salad happened last minute, I had some sad apple and about to die nectarine, so mixed them up and a good squeeze of lemon and a sprinkle of salt, you get a refreshing salad, add some walnuts for that crunchy element! .

Serving Crazy with Curry - Amulya Malladi
7/35, Goodread Reading Challenge

I felt like watching a Balachandar or sridhar movie while reading this one. If you are a tamil movie buff, that too old movies, you will know what i m talking about. These 2 directors were way ahead of their time and the women centric subjects they took, were a revolution at that time. 
Coming to this story, a small family in US, a mother, father and 2 daughters and a lovely grandma. 
All the 3 female leads are given a wonderful intro and a great presence all through the book. 
Avinash/Avi, a loving father, knew his daughters well, who in his process of becoming a provider lost his love for his wife.
Saroj, a typical indian mom, who expresses her love thru cooking and she talks, talks and talks like hell and she gets teary-eyed easily. 
Shobha and devi, are daughters of avinash and saroj.
Shobha is successful in all ways, flying high in her career as VP at an young age, married at the right age that too arranged marriage, which makes her mumma more happy and daddo a bit sad. Given that both avi and saroj had a love marriage, and their daughter wants them to find a guy for her, came as a shock for avi. But is she happy with her life, a big no! As successful she looks on the outside to others, she is equally dissappointed with herself inside.

Kootu, a south Indian style dal that is relatively thick made with veggies and choice of dal mostly moong/Chana.
I make kootu most of the tines, even today I made beets kootu with rotis for my hubby’s lunch dabba.
This one is malabar vellari /Indian yellow cucumber, a regular veggie in my grocery cart.
This kootu is made with freshly ground masala, a few common spices and coconut. The taste of araichuvitta kootu is scintillating, the freshness of the masala makes this one delicious accompaniment with rice.

Easy cheddar cheese roll ups! A simple bread slice with a cheese slice or shredded cheese sprinkled with some seasoning, rolled and pan fried. A quickie after school snack, pretty party idea too.
I make these whenever I m too tired for anything interesting to make and kids wants to eat something exciting, these rolls take almost no time. The rolls are pan-fired, and you can go versatile with the filling, add some chutney or  some  herb filling with the cheese. .

A Breath of fresh air- amulya malladi 
6/35 2019, goodreads reading challenge.

I finished this book in 2.5 hours. I read fast and If I find the book interesting I read in one go, thankfully had less chores yesterday and I could finish without any disturbance. 
A story of a divorcée, who is remarried to a person whom she loves in many ways better than her previous husband, they don’t have much on the money front but have loads of Love to share.
Anju/Anjali a Bhopal gas tragedy survivor living  with her husband Sandeep and only son Amar in Ooty. Husband and wife both are in teaching profession. 
They don’t have much but whatever they have they feel content about it.
Anjali one day meets her ex-husband in the market and it brings back whole lot of bitter memories and a struggle between her present life and the what if’s , if she lived the past in life, is the story.
The struggles are real, as usual I like the narration, if it isn’t catchy I won’t be finishing the book.
The final chapter with amar in the hospital i expected that  it is going to have a totally different end, but it is the expected end and it makes you feel sad, mind it you know the end, even then it makes you sad. 
Pick this book, if you are ok with reading a novel about a regular woman whom you can find in your neighborhood her life and her emotional battles.

Sometimes back @thelittleplantation hosted a Instagram food photography challenge. One of the themes in light was using #harshlight. I couldn’t do this when the challenge was going on. 
When I saw the #foodflatlaylove challenge by @platterjoy, I was excited I tried to click a #flatlay in harshlight.
This ingredients click was taken around 9 am in the morning, when I have bright light in my balcony where I usually shoot my picture.
Amongst the 10-20 clicks I tried I like this one best. Though it cannot be compared with the rest, I m happy that I tried something out of my comfort zone.
This is my entry for #foodflatlaylove challenge @platterjoy

Simple, yet colorful and refreshing lemonade with roohafza & basil seeds. A perfect party drink
Roohafza Lemonade with basil/subza seeds a refreshing and colorful summer drink. We tasted this drink in one of our friends birthdays party in a restaurant. Kids loved the color and taste so I had to make it at home.
It takes very little time to put this together. I have used ice cold water, you can add ice cubes or even use sparkling water for a different taste. Those chubby basil/subza seeds add a fun element and a nice texture to the drink. Why not try this for your Iftar today.
.
Recipe
🍷2-3 tbsp roohafza syrup 🍷2-3 tbsp sugar 🍷2 cups ice cold water 🍷1 tbsp subza/basil seeds soaked in 1/4 cup water
🍷juice of lemon or 2
🍷mint leaves a few, chopped roughly .
Just mix it all together in a pitcher/jug and serve chilled.
Adjust the lemon juice according to your preference.
