Capsicum Chutney / Bell Pepper Chutney





Capsicum chutney is a delicious chutney that pairs well with any dosa , uttapam or idli. This is a wonderful alternative to the traditional coconut chutney. I make these type of alternative chutneys when I am short on coconut or just as a pleasant change from the usual coconut chutney.

Overnight Oats



A healthy,hearty breakfast is very necessary to give a good start to the day. It fuels the body for the whole day grind. It is necessary to intake food with good amount of proteins and fiber. But on top of all the health benefits, if your breakfast is easy to prepare or if I may say, it is ready to eat when you wake up in the morning, then its just ultimate.

Tomato Onion Saasmi (Tomato Onions in a mustard-coconut gravy)





The word "Saasmi" or "Saasve" means mustard seeds. Tomato Onion Saasmi is a curry with cooked tomatoes and onion in a mustard-coconut gravy. This curry is served with rice and usually eaten before the main entree "Sambar" . The saasmi recipes that I have shared earlier are fruit based (Mango Saasmi and Pineapple Saasmi) and have a sweet touch to them. Tomato - Onion Saasmi is savory and spicy in taste. In mango and pineapple saasmi recipes, I used dry red chillies while in this recipe, I have used green chillies.
