Mixed Veggie Subzi

Last saturday, I wanted to make rotis with some different subzi. Was actually bored of the usual ones. The fridge had some french beans, carrots and tomato in store. So I started to make mixed vegetable subzi. It turned out to be very tasty and spicy. One thing which I loved about this subzi is the color, very attractive.
What you need :
Beans - 1 cup
Carrot - 1 cup
Potato - 1 cup
Green chillies - 2 slit into two
Oil - 2 spoons
Cumin seeds - 1 tsp
Ginger/ garlic paste
To grind:
Onion - 1 cut
Tomato - 1 cut
Red chillies - 2
Green chillies - 1
Cut all the veggies into long pieces and boil them in a microwave. I do this to retain the color of the veggies. In the mean while grind the ingredients listed under " To grind" with minimal water.
Heat oil in a wok and add cumin seeds. As they sputter add the ground paste followed by the boiled veggies. Adjust salt as per taste. Simmer till it becomes a nice gravy and serve hot with rotis.
I love the color of the subzi .. this is due to the ground red chillies.. Loved it ..a lot.


Manoharam for ICC

Hi everybody, hope things are fine with you. I am blogging after a very very long time. Something or the other kept me away from blogging. This time I was determined to make it to the ICC.
I was happy with the outcome of my experiment, but was not able to make balls out of manoharam. Reason being my hands do not generally bear heat. So ended up making manoharam bits instead of balls. I had adapted the Recipe 1 given by Srivalli .
This is one snack that my dad simply loves. I usually buy it from Grandsweets, but this time I was very happy to make it at home. It did taste good and everybody at home relished it.
I simply love the color of Manoharam. This is the effect of jaggery that I got specifically to make syrup - it is called " Pagu Vellam". It has a deep brown color and tastes yum. Jaggery syrup is a usual item on my dining table as people at home loves to have it with Idli, Dosa, Upma , etc.,

All it takes is a start, this post has made me realise how much I missed blogging on the whole. I will be back with more recipes. Enjoy.
