Chutney # 23 My daughter loves tendli fry, a stir fry curry made with ivy gourd. So I always end up buying lots of tendli. However to my dismay, many a times, upon chopping this vegetable, I realize that they have ripened. And thus cannot be used to make the stir fry curry. What do you do of these ripe Dondakaya? Make tangy and tasty chutney! My mother-in-law introduced me to this wonderful chutney and from them onwards, I am hooked to it. I would like to share this recipe with all of you…

Red Bell Pepper And Coriander Chutney Chutney # 22 This is one of my favorite chutneys. I have very fond memories associated with this chutney. My husbands aunty used to always prepare this chutney when I visited her in West Nyack. As a student studying in New Jersey, away from home, in a distant country, I often visited her and my husbands uncle during the weekends. And relished the delicious food, she used to prepare. This was indeed one of the biggest incentives for me to travel for two…

The All Time Favourite Three VegetableS Curry The first time my mother in law made this potato, onion and tomato curry, I was in love with it. Some of the traditional ladies, usually of the older generation in Andhra Pradesh (and other parts of South India) do not prefer to have dishes in which garam masala is used. Garam masala is a mix of various assorted spices like cinnamon, clove, pepper, cardamom etc. with garlic or without garlic. This masala is added to curries and rice to impart…

Raw Mango Gravy 9/#52cookbookpact By cooking some mango dishes, I am trying to recreate the summer mango magic. Alas, the mango season is over, though the heat is not welcoming in summer, the mangoes definitely are always welcome!

Brinjal And Tomato Chutney Chutney # 17 When I went home from office, yesterday, my mother-in-law asked me to taste a chutney, which she had made. As we love chutneys (especially she, me and my mother), I tasted it and was intrigued with its taste and could not name the chutney. She told me it was Brinjal and tomato chutney.
