Tamarind Sevai/Sevai Puliyodharai

Sevai is nothing its just rice vermicelli which is quite popular in Tamilnadu. Though this vermicelli can be prepared easily with rice flour at home, store bought sevai are easily available to dish out some fabulous easy breezy dishes with it. Store bought sevai are seriously very handy as you can prepare dishes either for your breakfast or your dinner. I have already cooked couple of dishes with different vegetables and ingredients. However i love both lemon sevai and tamarind sevai very much. They are just prefect to pack in anyone's lunch box especially in a kid's lunch box. Yes if you have homemade tamarind paste in in fridge or instant tamarind rice powder,  trust me this dish gets quickly than you can imagine..

Zucchini, Carrot & Tofu Paratha

Have you ever prepared paratha with tofu, if not you should give a try them. Tofu gives a fabulous softness to the paratha and its stays prefectly soft even to pack in a kid's lunch box. I have been cooking with tofu since a long. Earlier i was bit skeptical to use this soya cheese as its was quite an unknown ingredient for me. However i have learned myself to cook with this incredible tofu and now its quite our favourite cheese which i never fail to cook with. I can easily get this soya cheese as am living in China town. Obviously tofu have its own place in my weekly cooking. Tofu exists in three varieties, silken tofu is used often in vegan desserts, firm tofu and extra firm tofu for making dishes out of it.
