Palak Paneer

1 bunch palak(spinach), washed and chopped
1 medium tomato
2-3 green chillies
3-4 cloves of garlic
A small piece ginger
1 onion, chopped finely
1/2 tsp chilli powder
1 tsp cumin powder
1 tsp dhania powder
2 tbsp Curd
Salt to taste
Oil for frying
1 cup of fried cubed paneer

Chop the palak, tomato, ginger, garlic and green chillies.Put it in a large pan with 1 cup of water.Boil till well done. This should take about 8-10 minutes. Let it cool for a while. Blend the boiled mixture to get a coarse paste. (can use the pulse button to do this.)

Heat some oil and fry the onion till well browned. Now add the spices, stir for a minute and add the palak paste and salt to taste. Add fried paneer pieces and heat through. Add yogurt and let it cook for few more mins. Serve hot with chapati or Nan or both(like our dinner last night! ) Big smile

Wanted to surprise my hubby last night....(in preparation to today's celebration - Our Anniversary!! Wink ). This is one of his favorite and he and kids like the Naan where as I am more of a chapathi person. So we had both Chapthi & Nan with our favorite side!
(p.s. Not able to give the photo at this point...will try to do it, may be later today.)

Bisebelabath ( sambar sadham):

There are various versions of bisebelabath; this is how we make in our house Smile


1 cup raw rice
1/2 cup tuvar dhal
1" long cut vegetables - carrot, french beans, potato, drumstick, optional cauliflower - 2 cups
3/4 cup shallots
2 tbsp - groundnuts
lemon size tamarind soaked in 3 1/2 cups water
turmeric powder
mustard seeds
curry leaves

for masala
2 tbsps - channa dhal
1 tbsp - coriander seeds
1 tsp - black pepper
dry red chillies - 8 (or more)
star anise seeds - 5
marati mogu - 5 ( i donot what language this is , so am giving a picture)
1/4 coconut grated
roast the masala items in very little oil and grind to a smooth paste with water

Preparation :
Pressure cook rice and tuvar dhal together (rendum serndu nalla kalandu irukkanum). It is better if they are slightly over cooked. If your cooker is big, groundnuts and vegetables also can be pressure cooked in another container simultaneously.

In a kadai, heat oil, add mustard seeds, when they splutter , add shallots and fry till the colour changes.Add the curry leaves and fry little more. Pour the tamarind water and add turmeric powder. When the raw smell of tamarind water goes, add the masala paste and let it boil. Switch off.

In a big vessel, mix everything together - rice/dhal , vegetables, cooked peanuts, shallot kolambu. Add reqd salt. Pour raw sesame oil on top. Serve hot.

The best side dish for this is cucumber raita and javarasi vadam Smile.


The vadai in the plate is paruppu vadai - ingredients different from Caryn's version.

1 cup - channa dhal, 1 tbsp - dry green mutter, 6 green chillies - soaked and grind coarsely and added hing and salt. Then added 1 spoon saunf, chopped onion, chopped coriander leaves, curry leaves, grated coconut. Before deep frying in the oil, added 1 tbsp hot oil to the vadai maavu.

Til Rice(ellu saadham):

If you like the smell and taste of til (sesame), this is very simple to make.

Dry roast 3 tbsp of sesame seeds ( white) and grind it to a coarse powder - just 2 rotations in the mixie - else it can be become oily.

In a kadai heat oil, splutter mustard seeds, add 1 tsp channa dal, 1 tsp -urad dhal, 1 tbsp peanuts, when they are roasted , add cut green chilles,curry leaves & turmeric powder. Add cooked rice, til powder, salt and mix well. Garnish with coriander leaves. This can be served with avial or more kuzhambu.

OK Guys, From now I also starting to give receipes.

Today Special is SEVAI(Idiyaapam)

Soak parboiled rice.
Grind it with water.
In a nonstick pan, put a spoonful of oil, and add one glass of water. If you are planning to do sweet sevai don't add salt, otherwise add little salt.
Mix it well in few minuites, the water will absorbed and the sevai dough will come nicely without sticking in the vessel.(surundu varum)
Now keep the dough separate, and take sevainazhi or the one we use for making sev or omapodi, and make the sevai and stream it for 7 minutes. Sevai is ready.

Dal Sevai(High in protein)

Soak 3/4cup of uraddal, handful of tuardal and channadal.
Grind it with redchillies, asafoteida and salt with little water. In Kadai add oil and seanson with mustard seeds and urad dal and little asafotida and turmeric powderand curry leaves. Now add the ground mixture and cook it till it separares,(like paruppuaracha kari) and add the cooked sevai and garnish with cilantro, and Dal Sevai is ready to serve.

Coconut Sevai:(high in cholestrol) Wink

Cut 5-6 greenchillies into small pieces, cut ginger too in to small pieces.
1 full coconut(Turuvi)

Ina kadai add 4 spoons of oil, season with mustard seeds, channadal, urad dal and asafotedia and curry leaves. Then add chillies and ginger and fry for a minute and add the coconut and salt and cook for few minutes now mix it cooked Sevai and garnish with cilantro. Now Coconut Sevai is ready to serve. (If you add this to cooked rice it becomes coconut rice)

Vegetable Sevai:

Cut potato, carrot, beans, cauliflower and peas into small pieces.

Ina kadai, add some oil and again season with mustard, urad dal and asafotedia and curry leaves. Add the vegs. and add some turmeric, redchillie powder and salt. Cook till all the vegs. get soft and now add the Sevai and garnish with cilanto. Now Vegtable Sevai is ready to serve.

Sweet Sevai:

Ina kadai add 2 spoonful of ghee and fry some cashews and add elachi. Now add little water and jaggery and little coconut(2 spoon). Wait till the jaggery is dissolves and raw smell goes off. Now put the cooked Sevai and wait till all the water gets absorbed. Now Sweet Sevai is also ready.
