Thakkali Sambar / Instant Tiffin Sambar

I can never imagine making a sambar without lentils, PERIOD! Pressure cooked, mashed lentils is used mainly for getting thicker consistency. So, when I had this thakkali sambar at my friend's place, I simply couldn't believe that the sambar hadn't use any kind of lentils / thickening agents. 

Infact, I did not believe until I tried it for myself. And YES, this sambar is one of the quickest & easiest recipes around that goes with any kind of south-Indian breakfast.

Beets Stir-fry

"Beets Stir-fry" - One of the many ways to enjoy beets. Grated beets aids in quick cooking and you can enjoy this curry as a side... or as a rice-mix or even better, as a simple salad. The addition of moong dal to this curry not only makes it hearty & healthy, but super-filling too!

Kala Channa Masala

Of late, I am focusing more on adding traffic to the blog. One such effort of mine is to get the blog "Yummly Certified". Yummly has a large user base and features some of the best food blogs from around the world. All I had to do was to write a guest-post for them with a new, simple recipe (that is not featured in my blog so far), with high resolution pics. If they approve of my recipe and the pictures, then the recipe is featured in their site while the blog also gets "Yummly Certified"! "Win-win"!!!
