Today I made this with kababs and satay for an evening get together. For green chutney raita first I made green coriander and mint chutney for which I took half a bundle of coriander and half a cup mint leaves and cleaned and washed them properly in water . I chopped them nicely and put them in a mixer jar with 3 green chillies ,1 tsp tamarind pulp , 1/2 tsp sugar, salt as required and churned nicely in the mixture to make a paste . 
For raita I took 2 cups of curd and beat it nicely and then I added 4 to 5 tsp of green chutney in it . I mixed them nicely and then served it with my satay and kababs . It came out so well that I thought that I will try it as a barbecue sauce also next time.

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!

Shalgam is a winter vegetable and is a popular recipe from Punjabi cuisine. Shalgam (Turnip) belongs to the radish family. 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.
This recipe is from my mother in law's cook book , my mom In law was an excellent cook and being a panjabi, her excellency was panjabi cuisine. 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…
