I love rasam. It is plain and simple, the best comfort food. A good rasam reminds me of the time I had at my friends’s house. A good rasam is very easy to make and can be enjoyed as a simple pre-appetizer or a palate cleanser. There are many variations of rasam and this recipe will talk about using lemon to make this dish. I hope you enjoy making and eating it.
Puff pastries are very light and fluffy food that can be baked to a perfection. So less calories but mobile. This adds to perfect picnic food that can be eaten plenty. I particularly like Veg puffs in this categories. They are savory version of puff pastries that can pack a plenty punch of protein with a good stuffing. I like to use my mix vegetable stuffing for this purpose. The stuffing has a lot of sprouts and mix of vegetables. So lots of good stuff for the body and those taste buds.
For my version of veg puffs, I buy puff pastry sheets from the Indian store. But you can even use Pillsbury rolls for making your veg puffs. Now lets get started.

So, when the other day I felt like making Bruchetta, but had no fresh basil in hand, I made an alternative version. I used pesto instead and it came out splendid! I wish to share with you this twist to Bruchetta.
If you are like me, then you will always have an abundance of Dosa batter ready at home. But what can you do when you have a new batch and you have still have to finish the old batch. One easy and tongue tested way to finish the batter is to make shallow fried dumplings. These are also called “Kunipaniharam” in Tamil. But in the interest of able to identify with my readers (for whom the above might not be easy to pronounce), I just call these dumplings. These are super easy to make and are a sure hit with my family. Continue reading
