Ripe Mango Curry (Parndu Kukku Sasime)

Who does not love Mango... Some times I think the only reason we love summer in my family is because of Mangoes and Jackfruit. I learned this recipe from my cousin who served it to us when we went to her house. Quick and easy to make and tasty to the core..

You Need:
Ripe Mango - 1 cup Pureed
Coconut - 1/2 cup grated
Green chillies - 2
Red chilies - 2
Tamarind - 1/2" piece (add only if your mango is not sour)
Salt to taste

Grind all the above except the Mango pulp into a fine paste with 1 cup water.
Add it to the Mango pulp and mix well.
Serve with rice or dosa :)

Methi Muttar Pulao

As I had decided to make Mango sasime today, instead of serving it with plain rice I thought I will make Methi Muttar Pulao.

You Need:
Methi leaves - 2 cup finely chopped
Peas - 1/2 cup
Potato - 1/2 cup cut into 1cm cubes
Onion - 1/2 cup finely sliced
Cardamom - 2
Cloves - 4
Pepper corn - 4
Cinnamon - 1" piece
Green Chillies - 4 to 5 (as per taste)
Ghee - 1 tbsp
Rice - 1 cup

Soak Rice for 10 mins
Soak the methi leaves in water with 1 tbsp salt for 10 mins
In the pressure cooker, add ghee
Add onions and saute till onions become pink
Add cardamom, pepper corn, cloves, cinnamon and green chillies, saute for a min
Add the methi leaves, fry for 2 mins
Add the peas, potato, salt and rice
Fry for another 2 mins
Add 2.5 cups of water  and cook for 3 whistles
Once the pressure is off transfer to the serving bowl spread the rice and allow it to cool.

Eggless Banana Pancake

For this month's Shhhh cooking Secretly I was paired with Niloufer Riyaz and she gave me two awesome ingredients - Banana and Potato. I had big plans of preparing something new and awesome for this event but my back gave up :( So I decided to make something simple and easy with Banana.

Eggless Pancake is one of Anagha's all tie favorite food.

You need:
Banana - 3 small ones
All purpose flour - 3 tbsp
Milk - 1 cup

Grind all the above ingredients except Ghee 
The consistency should be that of dosa batter
Heat the Tava
Drop spoon full of batter on the Tava
Cook on reduced flame till  golden brown
Drizzle some ghee on top
Turn and cook for 2 mins
Serve :)
