Fish curry with ground coconut / Thenga aracha Meencurry

Keeping things simple should be our way of life. This would make it so much easier to appreciate and enjoy life not just for ourselves but for all. I hope that every single person wishes good for every other being making this world a better place to live...

Philosophy aside, I would like you all to give this really simple and easy fish curry recipe a try! I have prepared this quite often at home but rarely got around  to taking a snap of the dish :) I have a traditional 'meen chatti' (earthen pot) handed over by my amma to me, which I always make use whilst making this dish :D

We use similar coconut ground mixture while preparing toor dal (parippu) curry with fried shallots and curry leaves garnish. This was sort of my staple food during school days (slurp!!)... and it is yet to make way to my little space here.

Olan {Sadya Recipe}

Onam this year is fast approaching and few of the sadya recipes have been in my drafts since last Onam! 

Sometimes I am amazed at some of the loveliest sadya dishes for their simplicity and this sure is one of them. Pretty straightforward recipe and a quick one too. My only challenge is sourcing the ingredients here. Go on give it a try and I hope you enjoy it.

Victoria Sponge Cake with a twist

Well everyone bakes a Victoria sponge and here is mine! Good friends and good food on a fine summer day... good enough to celebrate with a beautiful sponge with lots of lovely summer strawberries :)
I added a dash of rose extract to give the usual Victoria sponge a new refreshing flavour. Baking a naked cake with some lovely summer fruits was the idea, like a fancy Victoria sponge cake :D

After an evening with friends,  the cake vanished and I knew I had got it right ;)
