Simple roasted potatoes

These roasted potatoes are very simple to make, my daughters gave a little twist to simple roasted potatoes by adding a topping on them but believe me it turned out extremely good , i always  encourage my daughters to try out something different with their own ideas and imaginations they always surprised me with more tastier and innovative dishes do you also do that ???must share some of your little ones creations with me ..

1 tsp butter
1 tbsps olive oil
2 clove garlic
salt, parsley

For topping :
1 cup grated cheese
1 big onion
1 big tomatoes
2 green chilies
Mix herbs as required


1.Wash  Potatoes properly ( proper cleaning is  really very important as we are using potatoes with peel) .Cut potatoes  in half lengthwise in thin slices so that potatoes can stand firmly on the ground

Oats dosa with drumsticks sambhar

Oates Dosa

Health is wealth is really important to be fit and healthy. I realised that, some change in lifestyle can help in maintaining a balanced diet. To apply it in daily routine...I have started a Diet food series.
There's nothing more inviting than hot South Indian breakfast: strong filter coffee, piping hot drumstick sambher with little bits of coconut, tasty coconut chutney gunpowder and golden-crisp Dosa! I love dosas and in fact I'm planning to make one today in breakfast. And it's not just because they taste divine but also because they're really fun to make: Right from grinding down the urad dal and rice, letting the white stuff ferment to running your ladle through the batter checking for lumps, it's almost therapeutic. After your pour the batter down a hot sizzling pan, even the wait to figure whether the dosa will stick or not is a delicious feeling....Dosa with healthy twist will make this delicious treat more interesting.

Gur chana / jaggery coated roasted chickpeas

Very tasty, crunchy yet healthy snack for kids, full of protein . I often make this crunchy delight for munching. 
 Jaggery Coated roasted chickpeas

Shalgam ki sabzi is very good for health as it is very low in calories and fat, and a good source of fiber and several vitamins like Vitamin C, Vitamin B, VitaminB3, Vitamin B6. Gur is Hindi/Punjabi for jaggery.  This creamy version from Punjab is one of our favourites.

She was excellent at cooking all panjabi dishes like sarson ka saag, makkai ki roti, gur ke chawal  or any vegetable like turnip or kormas, . I have learnt almost all panjabi dishes from her and I really wanted to thank her for that , today whatever I make related to punjab reminds me of her . Lov…
