Potato dip ( aloo raita)

Aloo raita :

For this we required :
2 ........potatoes (medium size)
2 cup....curd
1/4 tsp...sugar
1/4 tsp...chilli powder
1/4 tsp...roasted cumin powder
4 tsp .....chopped mint leaves

Aloo raita or boiled potato curd dip is today's side dish in lunch , curd and potato is again a very good combination . I make aloo raita in two ways , sometimes I grate potatoes to make it and sometimes I just cut boiled potatoes in cubes and make it. You can use any of these methods, today I am using the first method i.e grating potatoes . For this I took two medium sized boiled potatoes ,And grated potatoes with grater .
I took two cups of curd in a bowl and beat it nicely so that it became smooth and added 1/4 tsp of sugar and salt as required , 1/4 tsp red chilli power , 1/4 tsp roasted cumin powder. After preparing this curd mixture I added grated potatoes and 4 tsp of chopped mint leaves in it . I put a little tadka in this raita I mixed it well and served as a side dish in lunch.

Oats dosa with drumsticks sambhar

Oates Dosa

Health is wealth .....it 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.

 Jaggery Coated roasted chickpeas 


Ingredients:

GURWALE SHALGAM ( SWEET AND TANGY TURNIPS) punjabi style

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…
