Tomato Salsa

 

A packet of tortilla chips has been lying in my grocery storage for the last 1 month.. and craving for attention. I have just been putting it off site thinking not today … One fine evening , I was thinking of a starter before Pasta .Then remembered about this recipe which is an ideal medley.. and something tat’s quite fresh n healthy.This mexican side is quite an ideal combi with tortilla chips.

Coriander Chutney

 
This week has been quite buzy with my regular routine that I am hardly finding time to blog. Just managed to catch up with all my pending blog visits today.

Green Chutney alias Coriander Chutney is one of my kitchen essentials. I prefer to prepare them and stack in my freezer. This could be used as Sandwitch Spread or as spicy chutney for Chats.
You can try the other chat essential Dates Chutney too.

Chole Puri with Onion-Cucumber raitha


Call it Chole Puri or Chana Bhatura or Chick pea curry with Puffed Flat bread ,its the same and something which is quite popular in many Northindian houses. Quite simple to make & anytime one thinks of this dish, we finally end up drooling.
An interesting story goes behind the making.

Cilantro Balls – Kothamili thogayal

Its a great accompaniment with many of Tam Brahmin kitchen dishes like Keerai Masiyal- Spinach mash , Molagutal and many more. It has been my brother’s & mine hot favourite and I remember my mother storing it in Jar for 1 month or so everytime she made it.
Some of my pre marriage dinner time nostalgic memories are linked with this pickle like thing.With my mother’s receipe in my cook book , I tried to replicate it .. It was just the same in GUI & taste. What a sigh of relief when I completed it & had it with curd rice.
