Chettinad Shallot Masala Kuzhambu/Chettinad Vengaya Masala Kuzhambu

Usually prepared with country side vegetables, Chettinad masala kuzhambu can be prepared very well simply with Shallots aka small pearl onions. This fingerlicking no tamarind kuzhambu goes for an easy and quick cooking process. The basic ingredient for this gravy is a coconut based grounded masala. Most of the chettinad gravies calls for grounded spiced coconut paste and that is the best part of their cuisine. My today's post is also prepared with masala paste which calls for freshly grated coconut, cashew nuts, fennel seeds and dry red chillies with sauteed onions and tomatoes. This paste brings wonderful taste, spiciness and definitely the thickness to this simple gravy.

General Tso's Tofu/Vegan Tofu Kangjung

Few of my bookmarked recipes are still sitting sadly to give a try at home. Obviously am trying to clear them one by one. I have been planning for the popular General Tso's chicken for a while, but somehow i couldnt able to dish out. But thank god, i tried my hands with Soya paneer aka Tofu recently. Oh my god, what a easy breezy dish to make at home. I simply loved the mix of sweetness, spiciness and sourness in this dish. This dish makes an excellent side dish to serve along with cooked rice or simply sauteed noodles.

Mushroom, Flat Beans Fried Rice

Weather is too hot here, obviously am trying to cook earlier in weekends as well as in weekdays. Since we are crossing the highest level of hot temperature for the past three days, obviously we are sticking to drinking more water and eating salads than having some solid foods. However if you have some hungry tummies around you to feed especially for weekday lunches, you have to stick with some easy breezy dishes to dish and serve them quickly. My today's dish is one among those easy breezy but yet a filling and healthy dish to serve with simple side dishes.
