Besan Ke Tinde | Round gourd roasted with gram flour

Another  recipe in the series 'summer bites'. Tinda / round guard or Indian baby pumpkin whatever you say, taste wise I would give 10/10 to this vegetable if cooked properly with love and passion. I always recommend this vegetable as it easily creates a place in your party menu also. In my previous posts I had shared the  recipe 

A very interesting recipe, tinda's roasted in achari masalas and germ flour. It's very aromatic and tasty. The blend of different spices that is used to pickle it is called the achari masala and achari is a type of curry made in India by using a combination of these masalas. It gives a very aromatic flavor to a curry.

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.

My dietitian sugges…

GURWALE SHALGAM ( SWEET AND TANGY TURNIPS) punjabi style

Turnips are called Shalgam in Punjabi/Hindi, Gonglu in Punjabi and Gogji in Kashmiri. They are mild in taste and absorb spices well. We love it in various forms. 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.
