Baby corn & Capsicum Sabzi

Whooo..i'm back after a gap. Everytime i start my blog, write one or two posts and then disappear. This has happened twice. So when i take a break to my blogging i will eventually end up discontinuing. But this time i did not let that happen. Though i was very busy with my lovely kiddo's Birthday party and Ayush homam with so many relatives and friends visiting us, finally i made it today. All the hustle bustle went down and our lives became to normalcy only a few days before.

Today my FIL has bought a bunch of babycorn from the vendor. It's a surprise. Yeah! surprise and strange, because there are few veggies which are brought to home on my insistence for trying  new recipes. I will experiment on them and my family has to taste it inevitably. 

Sometimes i do not get them properly. Though the recipe has become shapeless and colorless, i always manage to get the taste right.

Paper Thin Poha 1 cup
Grated coconut Half cup
Half tea spoon salt
Half tea spoon Mirchi powder

Curry Powder - Koora podi alias Mirappodi

Curry Powder aka Mirappodi is one of the main ingredients used for making curries at my MIL's place. This powder is used as seasoning for curries like Aloo, Brinjal, Carrot, Beetroot, Capsicum, Drumstick, Ladies finger, Ridgegourd, Yam,  etc., We use this powder for almost all the vegetables. 
Let me tell you one fantastic thing about this powder. This powder comes in handy whenever i've no mood or no time to do Chutney for Idly, Dosa, Upma and even for Pongal. Take 4 Table spoons of this powder add a pinch of salt and mix it with Water, Curd, Oil or Ghee to prepare a paste. 2 mins of preparation and your side dish is ready.
So its a Miracle powder which you can use in almost any recipe to enhance the taste.

An Inspiration

Since my childhood days i've been a voracious reader who read books, magazines, novels etc., In the process of growing up, i graduated myself from reading "in print" to "on the net". I always wanted to try my hand in creative writing but never succeeded. I was unsure of what to write and how to write, until i wrote this post. As this is my first post and says "An Inspiration" on the title, i should tell you how it started.
