This time I get the opportunity to cook from Sowmya of Nivedhanam food blog a wonderful festive recipe Kadalai Parupu Sundal. It is basically a wonderful South Indian snacks made with chana dal. From her blog I get to know that this is the festive dish during c Navaratri as in my part Bengal, it is the most biggest festive time of the year so I thought my readers will also find it wonderful. I make the recipe as it is but as we Bong love our Channa dal little sweet so add a spoonful of sugar and lemon juice at the end. You can make it the authentic way or try my add, in both way Kadalai Parupu Sundal is just awesome. Thanks to Sowmya for sharing this wonderful recipe with us.

Rajma Masala / Spicy Indian Red Kidney Beans Curry

Rajma masala is a typical North Indian dish. You will find it in every roadside Punjabi dhaba , high end restaurant who are serving North Indian cuisine and not to mention every Punjabi house it is part of their regular cuisine. Even the langhar at Gurudwara serve this. I have tasted it in quiet a number of places from road side dhaba to five star hotels but every time the taste goes different though the basic creamy base of onion and ginger garlic and tomato remain the same. With all the taste that are stored in memory I tried to recreate rajma masala in my kitchen and to my surprise it really turned well. My version of rajma masala though loaded with calories but it’s definitely the creamiest version. Give it a try and let me know whether you agree my opinion or not. Today I am taking this recipe to our Potluck Party Cyber Style.

Ganesh Chaturthi Special Pistachio Modaks

Ganesha Chaturthi is the Hindu festival celebrated on the birthday (rebirth) of LordGanesha, the son of Shiva and Parvati. Ganesha is widely worshipped as the god of wisdom, prosperity and good fortune and traditionally invoked at the beginning of any new venture or at the start of travel. Today I am sharing with you special sweets for this festival Modaks. Modaks have a special importance in the worship of Ganesh; modak is believed to be his favorite food, which begets him the moniker modakapriya (the one who likes modak) in Sanskrit. During the Ganesh worship ceremony, known in India asGanesh Chaturthi the puja always concludes with an offering of twenty one modaks to the deity and as prasad. In my part Ganeshji’s puja is done with ladoo’s but for the first time I try my hand on modaks, the shape is not picture perfect but I must say it is yummylicious. I use pista for the outer covering just to give a nutty crunchy filling. It goes well. Hope you all like this little twist in reg…
