For the very first time I have made "PIE". I can't believe it... :-) :-)
Since this is the first I didn't want to try the traditional pie....instead I took a shortcut of using biscuits for making crust. The taste of the pie was amazing. :-)
The cooking smell of these pies, filled my house completely & it was there even the next day.
So here comes my not simple but yummy recipe. :-)

You don't need to cook, bake & fry for Date Chocolate Balls. Just do mixing & make balls in less than 10 mins :-) :-)
Actually this recipe came in Chennai Times, titled as A Date Everday. since I had all the mentioned ingredients in my fridge I just gave a try & it came so nice.....and yummy :-)
**I have adjusted the quantity & garnishing as per my taste.
Here's the recipe for u.
I had some leftover rice from last night's dinner in my fridge and I didn't feel like to throwing it....the reason is..... you know the price of rice has increased so much now. And yesterday while talking, suddenly my MIL asked me to make bondas because its veryyyy.... long since we had one.
While thinking about it, I got a spark of using this leftover cooked rice in stuffing the bonda & believe me....my parents-in-law enjoyed this bonda very much (FYI they are not suppose to eat potatoes and this bonda tasted like potato bonda).
And my little one finished 2 plates of bonda with ketchup :-) .
So what are waiting for....here's the recipe.

Yesterday night my daughter was so adament and was not having dinner till 11. Don't know why...she was crying & little cranky right from the morning.
I made potatoes peas masala & roti for dinner she didn't even touched it. She was crying..crying....& crying. After long time of pacification, she pacified & agreed to eat only egg....that's when I tried this egg roll & thank God she liked & finished the complete egg roll :-)

Increasing the immune level by giving the natural food to the kids are extremely difficult than a rocket science to the moms.
Since gooseberry places major role in increasing immune level, I use to give my daughter fresh gooseberry, gooseberry candy, dried sweet gooseberry....hmmmm..... nothing worked out :(
She loves mosambi & lemon juices very much so i gave a try with a combination of gooseberry + lemon juice and its a great success......:-) :-). She now asks for this juice everyday.
Just give a cup of gooseberry juice to your kids when they are back from school....and stay coolll...:-) :-)
I love shopping in eBay. eBay has wide range of collections. All the products that i have shopped in eBay so far has reached before the delivery time with good quality. So I prefer eBay.
If I make this yam kara kuzhambu for lunch today, I'll serve the remaining Kara kuzhambu with idilis the next day for breakfast. And everybody in my home loves it that way which is easy for me 2 in 1 ;). And here is my recipe for you....u too can follow my style :-)

Please don't think that I'm a lazy goose seeing all my simple version recipes..ok. I always prefer fast & simple version because I'll be running out of time everyday in the morning.
Need to cook & pack breakfast & lunch for my daughter, hubby & myself. Ahaaa....imagine how busy I'll be...that's y I have hands-on on all simple versions ;)
Here is another simple version recipe... he he....
Whenever I call my baby( daughter) to come to eat, the very moment she'll ask "whats the food" & if I name any vegetables that's all.....i have to run behind her for at least an hour to have lunch/dinner.
But she is happy with "Eggs". She treats her equally to chicken & mutton....which makes my job easy ha ha....so now a days I'm having stock of eggs & recipes :-)
Here is one of my egg recipes.

Plantain stem has lot of health benefits and I have witnessed it.
Once my brother had kidney stones and doctors advised him for the laser treatment. But my mom made my brother to be on strict plantain diet and as a miracle, the stone itself got cleared within 3 days and the treatment was cancelled. Thank God.
Plaintain stem is a wonderful vegetable so make sure to eat at least once a week.
Here comes my recipe of Plantain Stem Koottu.
Carrot is one of my favorite vegetables. In fact I use to eat & think carrot only is a vegetable when I was very young. My thought process about vegetables have changed a lot since my marriage. I do lot of mix & match in my recipes with veggies. Carrot baby corn rice is one of the kind :-). Hope you like it.

Soon it'll be mangoes every where...because the season is nearing.... luckily my dear hubby saw mangoes in the nearby fruit shop yesterday & bought it. :-)
I made a chilled Mango Lazzi today out of those mangoes & here is the recipe.
BTW mango is a super fruit with vitamin A & C. Curd is with vitamin A, B & E.
Today evening my daughter asked me to make bajji. Generally by friday all my vegetables will be over & I'll clean the fridge to store fresh veggis for coming week. So there was only some whole wheat bread slices left in my fridge. I thought of giving a try with it & it worked fabulously. Even my parents- in -law loved it. They eat only wheat food most of the time. They really enjoyed this bajji.
