Weekend food coma

Filed under: food, recipe — Tags: , , , , , , — yaadayaada @ 7:56 pm

Tasty dinner to ward away the cooking and blogging slump. Gobi mussallam, Roti, Blackeyed pea and mung dhal! Followed the recipe from Tarla Dalal website. Although slightly altered the recipe by adding creamy yoghurt to the marinade. Also baked the whole thing in the oven instead of pan roasting it.

On Saturday, had cousins over for dinner, so made masala dosa, onion tomato chutney, Idiyappam and Vegetable stew. Followed the stew recipe from here. Turned out to be awesome stew.

On Sunday, a friend’s family stopped by for lunch. Made Keerai molagoottal, Beans paruppu usili, Carrot cucumber salad, Pineapple rasam, ulli theeyal, curd and rice. Ulli theeyal was out of the world. I am sure it will capture a permanent place in the weekly menu for some time.

So Sunday night dinner was a lite affair with Asparagus soup!!

Hopefully, this weekend post will get me to post about the many posts(India trip, Hyderabad visit, Kahaani the movie, various Tamil movies and Hollywood movies, etc) that I have in my brain as draft!!
