Mixed Vegetable Subji | Chapathi side dish recipe
My husband and I have chapathis for lunch almost 3-4 days a week and making a subji (side) to go with chapathi everyday is challenging. The challenge is because my husband does not want lentils or grains as side dish and all I am left to do is vegetable kurma, egg curry or non vegetarian sides. But with the boredom of making the usual staples one day I tried a simple mixed vegetable side that had a good variety of veggies like broccoli, yellow and red carrots, cauliflower, green and red capsicum the result was a delicious side packed with flavors. If you love costco like I do, I get this huge bag of organic mixed veggies in the frozen section. I have repeated this recipe for almost 50 times and my husband never complains eating it ;-). 

Masala Pori | Kara Pori | Spicy Murmura | Easy Indian snacks

We all love snacks and if its Indian ad spicy no one can say no. I love to have something to much along with my cardamom tea. But most Indian snacks are deep fried and sometimes we look for something light. This masala pori or spicy murmura is so easy to do, crunchy and light. You can make a big batch of it and save it. You can add nuts and seeds to this for a good crunch. I have added garlic for a fragrant flavor, you can skip it if you don't use garlic in cooking.  Pori is basically puffed rice, usually sold plain or found in mixtures.

Butterless Tres Leches Cake Recipe
4 years it is :-). So thankful to God for bringing us together to grow together, and through it all we strive to be better each day and through each joy and through each struggle. We may not be perfect and never strive to be perfect as a couple but each day we strive to be a better person for us. Over the years I have learnt to cherish, understand, love and make him happy. 

So this year I was bit different in planning for a cake, I started late (not my usual self i know) but I was sure of what I wanted the minute I decided the cake. I have seen this cake many a times but never tasted it but I have seen many rave about this cake so much that I just wanted to have it. I made a decadent Tres leches cake ( 3 milk cake) I wonder who created this recipe is it Mexican or Latin American however this is one to die for cake (not literally) but in a sense it is too hard to resist. Mind u loads of eggs and milk and no butter so if you are making this for a crowd better to make sure that none are lactose intolerant. Usually tres leches cake is made as a sheet cake and generous 3 milk is poured over the cake and soaked up before being topped with whipped cream and maraschino cherries. The fatless sponge it an excellent and best recipe I have ever tried, its so good that you can almost adapt it for any sponge cake or base as a layered cake. Leave it to your imagination that just a good recipe and you can do so many variations with this sponge, its is so good. Have I said enough? ;-) but trust me no matter what there has to a tres leches in your life and you will come back to thank me :-). We happily cut the cake and forgot to add candles :p and the cake vanished as we wanted to pass on few pieces to friends and I forgot to get a decent pic of the sliced cake :-/ but I know you won't punish me :-) so here comes the recipe to the bestest tres leches I say....
