My Very first dish I got appreciation from everyone. TH will go crazy whenever I make this and he finishes off it completely without even a trace 
Ofcourse the source is from amma. She used to make this for each and every trip and we never complained for dat. I even used to take this along with rice for lunch.

This thokku will suit to anything as such like a pickle for curd rice and can mix with rice as for Instant thakkali sadham and also as a side dish for idlis, chapathis and all that. This can be even stored for a week or so.  Store this in a dry and clean air-tight container.

Preparation time: 5 minutes
Cooking time: 30-45 minutes

Chicken Kuzhambhu | South Indian Chicken Curry

Chicken has been TH’s favorite. If I make anything out of it he will have it for sure. I have tried many other recipes and thought of sharing this simple gravy as a basic.  

This goes as a great combination with idli, dosa, idyappam, chapathi as well as rice.

Spicy Pepper Rasam | Milagu Rasam

 A perfect meal always ends with rasam.  Rasam plays a vital role in our south-indian meal. First part it helps in digesting the food easier and next, the spicy masalas helps to cure sore throat. I generally prefer having rasam whenever I feel sick.  Usually there are different varieties of rasam and one of my own favourite is “Edicha pepper rasam” which is awesome when u ve a bad throat.  This can be taken along with rice as a simple and yet spicy dish for lunch.

I ve tasted fried rice in most restaurants in Chennai. But I still feel the awesomeness of fast-food egg fried rice….  They ve a spl flavor for the dish… As you all know in fast foods they add vinegar and MSG to enhance the taste. Here is the recipe to do fried rice WITHOUT MSG AND VINEGAR but still it has the taste as like a fast-food.

Source of this recipe is from my amma. You can actually modify the recipe for chicken or mushroom fried rice by adding the ingredients, taking the base as an example. 

Hope you enjoy doing it.  Share your comments if you like it or any suggestions to do with...

Chicken Hariyali Tikka

One of my favorite chicken recipe “Chicken Hariyali Tikka”.  This can either be served as a starter or a side-dish. 

When I was in Chennai I tried this tikka in most restaurants and it really tasted yummy-delicious.  I used to try this at home. Since I used a stove-top it consumed so much oil but still I couldn't able to get the perfect texture.
Since I have a grill oven out here I tried this recipe and it came out really well...
