Is your kid “foodthusiastic” at the dining table?

Do you cook once and eat it for a week? yuck! (sorry, I honestly didn’t mean to insult you) Are you killing your kid’s taste buds and enthusiasm with stale, reheated, boring food? Don’t you agree defrozen items from a Microwave Oven can never ever compare with a Mother’s warm and fresh magic delicacy?
In a world obsessed with Calories but not Kitchen Wisdom, at times when eating out is considered convenient and fashionable but cooking your daily food is looked down, with families hardly having enough time to cook, sit down and eat together, if your kid is NOT saying this everyday, every week, at least once in an year, then you as a parent is a complete failure:

“<grins>Mommy! You are the best cook in the world</grins>”

In the Pic below is one of the super man snacks that a kid can get… minapasunni

“ఇంటికి ఇనుము – ఒంటికి మినుము” కదా మరి 🙂

wanna generate your own bodyheat in cold winters? Try “Pudina Thepla”

Untitled

Wanna dine light but with hellafa fiber, anti-oxidants, low-calorie-high-energy cereals and essential elements with a punch of herbal medicine right in your kitchen? Taste this raw mint, cumin, coriander, saunf, red chilli and turmeric that went into the making of simple rotis served with a spicy curry of cabbage, carrot and beans.

When the dominating aroma of fresh mint reaches your nostrils, the strong flavor fills your palate and the cool aftertaste makes you close your eyes and bend your head back, then you know you are ready for dinner 🙂

Not to mention the heat it all generates, you surely would be more resilient to the winter weather 🙂 hail the herbs.

ఉల్లి పకోడీ

చలచల్లని చలి గాలుల్లోనూ ఉడుకుల వేసవి సాయంలోనూ
కాలాతీతం కావ్యోద్దీపం వెచ్చని పచ్చని ఉల్లి పకోడీ
వద్దనగలమా కాదనగలమా వద్దని కాదని వదిళెళ్ళడమా
ముందరి కాళ్ళకు బంధం వెయ్యదె వెచ్చని పచ్చని ఉల్లి పకోడీ.

VADA Science

Andhra’s staple food that is a science in itself. Simple to prepare yet very tough to get it right, energy warehouse for all ages, delicious in many varieties and is a true signature of whoever makes it. From grinding the lentils well aerated to mellifluously folding them in shape, from uniformly frying em golden yellow to nicely soaking all in full fat curds n spices, VADA is one dish that always gets all guts on 🙂

Back by popular demand for a potluck 🙂 and of course it would go on stage as Dahi Vada today 🙂
