    Healthy Curry Theme: Main Course with Gravy/RiceBM#85 Week 2 Day 1   Its good to back with the Blogging Marathon team. I enjoy the themes. However, I missed December as I was on holiday and January as I didn’t have access to a kitchen. Every month Srivalli gives a choice of different themes and it becomes difficult to choose which ones to do. Keeping the healthy eating decision I’ve taken for 2018, I thought curries would fit that bill.    I know when most of you think of curries, you think of curries with lots of red chili powder, gallons of oil floating on top and basically unhealthy. However, let me assure you that most homes do not make curries that are floating in oil and color. My curries usually…

    Assam – The Red River State November is when the Shhh Cooking Secretly Group visited Assam. Assam is a state in the North East of India. Its strategic location makes it the ‘Gateway to the Seven Sister States of North East India’.

Assam is well known for its flora and fauna and the famous tea estates. Assam itself has nearly 500 varieties of orchids.

    Super Healthy    Navratri and Dussera are over, all the feasting is over..for now. After all the rich snacks and desserts, Saturday meal was a simple khichdi made using bajri (bajra, pearl millet) and moong dal.        The 112th theme for FoodieMonday/Bloghop suggested by Amrita who blogs at The Food Samaritan, was #1Tsp Oil. This theme couldn’t have come at a better time. Saturday meal was definitely light on the stomach and yet full of nutrition. Thanks Amrita for encouraging us to cook with little or no oil.     On my ‘to do list’ was this bajra khichdi ever since Sapana of Cooking with Sapana posted the recipe for the protein rich dishes theme. Sapana thank you so much, the khichdi turned out really delicious.  …

    MEGA BLOGGING MARATHON -SEPT 2017   #80TH BLOGGING MARATHON   THEME: PROTEIN RICH DISHES/LENTILS DAY:18 When one mentions Kenya, marathon runners, safari and wildlife comes to ones mind. Kenya is no doubt a beautiful country. From Mountains to beaches. Mount Kenya, the 2nd tallest mountain in Africa, is a mountain climbers dream with jagged peaks. Grasslands or Savannah, pristine beaches, The Rift Valley, every part of the country there is something to see. Kenya is well known for its wildlife like lions, cheetahs, leopards, zebras, gazelles, elephants, buffaloes, hippos, giraffes, rhinos and so much more. Shrubs to baobab trees, filled with all sorts of flora and fauna. The famous song in Lion King, Hakuna Matata means no problem. Simba means lion in Kiswahili and Rafiki…

    MEGA BLOGGING MARATHON -SEPT 2017 #80TH BLOGGING MARATHON THEME: PROTEIN RICH DISHES DAY:10 When one talks about a vegetarian protein rich diet, they think that our meals maybe very boring with just dals, sabjis and rice or rotis. For this Mega Blogging Marathon, I’ve tried to showcase basic protein rich ingredients that can be made into some exciting, delicious, tasty meals. When one talks about tasty meals or dish, the first thing that I can think of is chaats. Yes Chaats. So, what are chaats? They are basically a mixture of basic ingredients made into a lip smacking, tasty dish with a melange of all tastes…sweet, sour, salty, chili and not so bitter. Right from Kashmir to Kanyakumari, ( no please don’t start singing the…

    MEGA BLOGGING MARATHON -SEPT 2017 #80TH BLOGGING MARATHON THEME: PROTEIN RICH DISHES DAY:8 Coming back to Mombasa is certainly a jolt back to reality. No more wide pavements, traffic order, running water in taps, well stocked supermarkets etc etc. After a long journey from Montreal to Nairobi with a 3 hour stop in Paris, hubby and I were exhausted. As we came out from the arrivals terminal at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport, we thought just one more hour and we’ll be home. I could only think of my bed as I could barely keep my eyes open. Strong coffee too was not helping. One of the worst airports to move from one terminal to the other is Nairobi and Addis Ababa. Which of the…

    MEGA BLOGGING MARATHON -SEPT 2017 #80TH BLOGGING MARATHON THEME: PROTEIN RICH DISHES DAY:7    During our last few days in Montreal, hubby and son were wondering how come I’m not taking up their offer to dine out. Don’t get me wrong as much as I love preparing and trying new dishes both for blogging and otherwise  I at the same time love eating out. However they both didn’t know that I was on a mission to prepare Protein Rich Dishes with ingredients that I knew I would not get in Mombasa and Tofu being one of them. Sometimes I feel that we should shift to Nairobi and then I’d get all the ingredients I want. So hubby dear will say “OK I don’t mind, but…

    MEGA BLOGGING MARATHON -SEPT 2017 #80TH BLOGGING MARATHON THEME: PROTEIN RICH DISHES DAY:4    Anywhere you go, for dinner parties, weddings, engagements or any social gathering, people tend to fill their stomach with starters. When we were planning for my son and daughter’s weddings, we spent so much time discussing the starters and according to that it was then easy to choose the main dishes. For guests to appreciate the meal, the starters have to be the stars, then the rest just falls into place. Whenever I’m entertaining at home, and if we’re more than 10, I prefer to make starters that are easy to put together. This way I have more time to prepare the main dishes and desserts. If there’s a pot luck or bring a…

    MEGA BLOGGING MARATHON -SEPT 2017 #80TH BLOGGING MARATHON THEME: PROTEIN RICH DISHES DAY:3    The whole world jokes about how Gujaratis need to carry their food wherever they travel  in the world. Some joke that one would probably find theplas, dokhlas, muthias, fafda, patra, etc even on the moon if a Gujju lived there. Well, okay I don’t carry these things with me when I travel but I do take the handvo flour to Canada or Bangalore. This time round I forgot to carry some handvo flour  to Montreal. Soaking the rice and lentils overnight and then making handvo is easy. But coming to muthia, I required just a small amount and I really didn’t want to go through the whole process of soaking the rice and dal,…
