Mixture/Chivda is a south indian savory snack which is made by mixing sev, variety of nuts & spices. My daughter is very fond of mixture so my hubby bought 1/2 kg last week only for her but as a responsible mom....(he he...... at times the devil/angel inside me don't jus allow me to give the shop bought oil snacks to my her).....I wanted her to eat something healthy or homemade so I mixed all vegetables with the mixture and made this salad. It is tasted like bhel puri and she loved it.

Broccoli has lots of health benefits but making the kids to eat broccoli is really a mountain climbing task.
Once i tried adding broccoli in maggi noodles but didnt work. Same with sandwich also. Since my l'il one loves fritters/bajji items I tried this broccoli bajjis and believe me she finished all the bajjis within 5 mins. Then I made onion bajji for rest of us...:-)
Do give a try with your kids too.........

When I was small, to grow my hair my mom & dad together use to make coconut oil at home specially for my hair. And my grandma used to send selected coconut for making oil at home through whoever comes from my native. It was my whole family who took much efforts to grow my hair.

Since its made of wheat + Ragi flour I happily went to the shop Immediately & got 10 pkds.....ha ha......

Green Peas Masala is my favorite dosa side dish. Actually my mother - in-law use to make this very well. I just learned the perfect version from her & tried this week. It came out exactly like hers but my daughter liked only my version and she told her aachi( grand ma) also that but the way she told was very funny. So her aachi laughed & chased her for the whole day....:-)
Here's my MIL 's recipe for u.

Summer has started already......and as a sign you could feel the scorching hot in the morning itself....and you could also see the watermelons, tender coconuts, baby cucumbers everywhere....
It is must to keep your body cool during summer. And best is to consume lots & lots of fruits & vegetables.
Baby cucumber is a simple yet wonderful vegetable which keeps the body very cool. And pomegranate fruit has lot of benefits in it. So I have prepared a simple salad combining these 2.
Fruit + vegetable = Heavenly healthy salad
