Lima Beans Curry

Lima Beans are also called as Butter Beans.. this is a healthy bean that gives out a number of variety dishes which I am still learning :) I have tried a curry with it for now. The recipe is very simple to keep as any other regular curries, but just because of these beans, there is a huge variation in the taste of the curry. This bean is very very low in Saturated fat and cholesterol and is very very high in Protein and Dietary fiber. This is also a very good source of Vitamin C. Yet to try out the variety recipes of Lima Beans.. will try to get you more and more dishes with this Healthy Bean.

Aloo Cutlet / Potato Patties

Who will not love a dish that's made with Aloo/Potato?? Here comes one of those interesting recipes. Aloo cutlet was one such snack which my mom used to prepare for us in my childhood days.. :) I need not actually say anything much about this dish as it's well known to everyone :) Let's begin with the recipe.. Here again, there are many many versions of preparing these patties.. I leave it to your choice about adding the vegetables accompanying the Potatoes.. if you are not willing to add up any other vegetable to this, go ahead with just Potatoes and Peas. These patties, as a change from the regular Aloo cutlet chat, can be sandwiched with the toasted Bread :)

Gunta Ponganalu / Snack with Dosa Batter

Gunta Poganalu is a very favorite snack of mine.. Dipping those Gooey 'Punugulu' with the coconut chutney and having them is just mmm.. mouth watering. Whenever dosa batter is prepared some part of it is kept aside without diluting it with water, so as to use it for the 'Gunta Punugulu' preparation. To make this, the Dosa batter should be little thick unlike the way it is while preparing a Dosa. You need to have a Punugulu pan for this which makes the dish more convenient to prepare. Let's start with it :)

Turnip Greens Masala

Turnip Greens are the leaves of the Turnip, a root-vegetable. I have always made Turnip Dal but this time, wanted something different out of it in our Indian style. Tried it the way Aloe Palak is made and surprisingly, it came out very very delicious than I was expecting. All you need to take care while cooking these greens is to wash the leaves very thoroughly since it carries lot of sand/dust. Turnip Greens are very rich in Vitamin B6, Vitamin C, Calcium, Phosphorus and a very good source of Fiber. Leafy veggies as known, are always good. Try this recipe!

Bread-Egg Upma

Hello Viewers.. Today, I have come up with yet another yummy dish 'Bread-Egg Upma'. Eggs are a good source of Riboflavin, Vitamin B12 and Protein. Where as, they are again high in saturated fat and cholesterol. So, it's ideal have them in your diet once a while but not very regular. However, the white's of the egg never does any harm if taken frequently too. Keeping now-a-day's calorie consciousness in mind, I have taken the main Ingredient Bread too, to be made up of whole wheat. It tasted equally good as the regular bread does and hope you all would enjoy this. Following is the video with the whole process in detail.. Check it out!
