Vegetable Sagu (No Onion No Garlic recipe)

Vegetable Sagu is a very popular side dish served in the South Indian State of Karnataka. It is commonly served with Set dosas or with Pooris. It equally tastes well with phulkas or chapattis too:) The recipe that I am sharing today is a NO-ONION NO-GARLIC recipe. But if you desire, you may add onion and garlic. It sure will enhance the taste of the curry.

Kocchu Uppinakai - Instant Mango Pickle

Today's post is a very special post as I will be sharing a recipe of an Indian Pickle "Achhar" for the first time in my blog:) In India, pickles are prepared by finely chopping the vegetables and marinating them in brine solution or edible oils.

Rice Kheer / Rice Pudding / Paal Payasam

Rice Kheer is a delicious and popular pudding prepared during festivals or to celebrate happy occasions. It is very easy to prepare and makes a great dessert for parties as you can prepare it well in advance and refrigerate it. Rice is cooked in milk on slow heat, sweetened with sugar and finally garnished with cardamom, saffron and nuts. This kheer is prepared in the north as well as the south of India. In the northern parts, the kheer is served with a thicker consistency while in the southern  parts of the country, the kheer or payasam has a running or thinner consistency. Personally , I love the thicker consistency:)
