Mensinakai Bonda / Mirchi Bonda

This is my dad's favorite snack and when he was visiting us last year i couldnt make it for him. Today is father's day so made his favorite snack. I have tried many times but still the chillies are ended up being too hot to eat. I got an idea to soak it in the sour buttermilk for a whole day to take off the heat. Dipped in the besan flour (gram flour)and deep fried it. Serve it with chutney & it was really yummy. Also made a cake as my son wanted to make one for his dad :). Happy Fathers day to all.

Soppina Palya / Soppu Karimbdh

Soppina Palya / Soppu karimbdh I havent made any simple curry / palya / karimbdh in my blog. One of my viewers requested me to post some simple one's. This is mixed all green leaves. During my growing up years, I remember that the vegetable vendor used to get very fresh green leaves & veggies right to the doorstep. All the ladies would gather around him and buy the veggies for the day. Some fond and strange (seems now) memories. This is a very simple recipe. To make it more tastier i have added toor dal and this can be made without dal too. This is best with hot plain rice or even chapatis.
