Thattai Murukku Recipe | Diwali Snack Recipes

Today I am sharing Thattai Murukku recipe here. Some friends of mine used to call this thattu vadai too. This is my favorite type of murukku and my dad used to get a pack specially for me from a shop near home. According to me, that is where they make the best thattai murukku. But now being away from home, I have been missing that murukku, so I started making it myself. Also this is the first variety of murukku I learnt to make. I used to make this for  every diwali since then but still couldn't post this in the blog. This time I definitely wanted to post this in the blog as Diwali special. The recipe is very easy and this does not need special murukku press/maker too. But the key for crispy thattai lies in how thinly you flatten it and also the temperature of the oil has to be perfect, neither too high nor too low.

Butter Murukku Recipe | Easy Diwali Recipes

Today I am sharing Butter murukku recipe here. My kids are in vacation and I wanted to make something for them to munch on. As diwali is coming near, I thought if I made murukku I can feed both my blog and the kids. I must say this murukku is quite addictive and they were vanishing in a quite high speed. Kids loved this and they wanted to help me while I was making it too. But since this involved oil and frying, I was afraid to let them help. So my daughter helped me by shooting the video of butter murukku making process. It was shot in low light and in phone, so video quality is not the best but since my daughter shot it I had uploaded it in you tube and also thought it might be helpful for beginners in cooking to understand better. Also this is the first video in Divya's Culinary Journey. Coming to today's recipe, I made this butter murukku with store bought rice flour. It is easy to make and even a beginner in cooking can make perfect butter murukkus without any difficulty following this recipe.

Senai Kizhangu Fry | Yam Fry

Today I am sharing a simple recipe for Yam Fry (Senai Kizhangu Fry). It is one of my favorite vegetable since childhood. It was only after marriage I came to know that this vegetable is also know as Karunai Kizhangu. In English this is called as Elephant foot yam or just as elephant yam. My mom makes different recipes with this yam but the one I love the most is deep fried yam seasoned with salt and chilli powder. Whenever she makes this I would finish my food without any complaints. I tried to recreate the taste of it in this recipe without actually deep frying it. My kids loved this too.

Baby Corn Manchurian Recipe | Baby Corn Recipes

I am going to share Baby corn Manchurian recipe today. I prepared the semi dry version and it can be served as an appetizer. This is a Indo Chinese recipe where baby corn fritters are tossed in a sweet,spicy,tangy sauce. I have already posted Gobi Manchurian and Mushroom Manchurian recipe before.  I felt this is very easy to make and just that it is a little time consuming but it is totally worth it. My kids totally loved this baby corn manchurian. Even before the manchurian was ready, my kids kept gobbling the baby corn fritters as I was preparing them. I had to shoo them away to save them from finishing it before I could toss them in the sauce. Then they couldn't wait till I finished clicking the pictures. They loved the end product too. Some how this baby corn manchurian is a great hit at home. It can be served with Vegetable fried Rice or noodles or can be had just as an appetizer.

Oven Roasted Brussel Sprouts

Today I am going to share a simple recipe for Oven Roasted Brussel sprouts. This week Hubby got brussel sprouts fresh from the market, on the way back home from work. I must admit that I am not much familiar with this vegetable. My daughter calls them "baby cabbage" because they look like miniature cabbages. I have prepared this once before and decided to cook these in the same way too- Oven roast them. I tossed them with few ingredients and roasted them in oven and they are ready. We had it just like that as you would eat french fries. They tasted best when they were warm.

Strawberry Muffins Recipe (without Eggs & Butter) | Egg less Strawberry Muffins

I have been posting capsicum recipes for the past three days. My daughter was so upset that I have been making capsicum everyday at home and to cheer her up I baked Strawberry muffins for breakfast yesterday. I have already posted strawberry muffin recipe with egg and also Strawberry banana muffins made in whole wheat flour. I usually follow either of the 2 recipes for baking strawberry muffins. But this time I wanted to bake without egg and tried this recipe. It came out so soft and spongy. Kids loved it. It is definitely a fool proof recipe for the perfect egg less strawberry muffin.
