Paneer Ladoo

Paneer ladoo is something all kids and even elders would love to have. Melt in mouth kind delicacy it is. My kiddo's kindergarten here had informed us that if there is any festival that we celebrate in India with pomp and fervor, it would be great if I could just pen down the importance of the festival and pass that to them so that they could let other kids know the importance of these festivals.
I too was excited to pen down few words about the festival and pass on some homemade paneer ladoos for all the kids. It is an easy delicacy which could be prepared within 30 mins if you have paneer (cottage cheese) ready. I prepared fresh cottage cheese at home and then prepared the ladoos.
Here goes the recipe.

Easy Chakli recipe this Diwali/Maida Chakli

Diwali is around the corner and it is time to celebrate. Quite a relaxation it is, when I cook something for my family and friends. This time I tried my hands on Chakli. But usually chakli means, it involves too much effort when rice chakli is prepared. So an easy method is what I always look for. Here is a simple maida chakli recipe and I can bet that you will never go wrong with the measurements I mentioned. It is a failproof easy method.

OnaSadya/Onam Feast

We all bid adieu to Onam last week. Again for a delicious Onasadya we must wait an year altogether. I know I am late but I could just manage it today after a week. Hope it would be of some help to some one planning next year.
A list of 16 items were there to make up our Onam feast. Since it is sadya for very few persons, I made all delicacies in small quantities. If you wish to prepare one or the other on a day other than fest you could increase the ingredients proportionately. For Onam Sadya oil used is preferably coconut oil, if not available, choose what you prefer.
I will try my best to write up all the recipes one by one.
And here you go.

Stuffed Capsicum/Stuffed Peppers/Stuffed Paprika

Had been a long time that I tried stuffed bell peppers and yesterday got a chance to enjoy that. It was stuffed capsicum a part of our Sunday lunch. To make it healthy, my options were using minimum oil to cook the stuff mixture. The stuff I prepared was out of soya chunks and potatoes, and just a tsp. of oil to brush the peppers from outside before baking. It is a meal in itself, or it could be a side dish or even it could be a starter. In our case it was a starter for us yesterday for lunch.

Couscous Vegetable Salad

I put up a diet plan and just in 2-3 days time end up taking a day off from diet and eat all things out there and again think , o yea, I must follow a diet. But lately I really started liking the diet plan since I started this time with a wonderful salad for my lunch, with couscous and loads of veggies. It is extremely tasty for the natural flavors from all vegetables that ooze out. Let me pass my way of doing simple and easy couscous and vegetable salad.
