Slutty Brownies | Fudgy Brownie Recipes

You must be wondering why these brownies are called slutty brownies! Well, I'm guessing because they are so sinfully delicious and rich! When I found this recipe I simply had to try it! I have made many brownies and this has become one of my favourites!

This brownie has 3 layers, a cookie dough layer, a sandwich cookie layer (like oreo) and an outrageous brownie layer on top. If you want to indulge, then this is the recipe for you!

Mushroom Do Pyaza makes a delicious side dish for rotis and even dosa. The dish is called Do Pyaza since there are two types of onions used or the onion is added twice. This addition of onions makes this dish very tasty and different.

Eggless Chocolate Mousse Cake

It was that time of the year again when I become a 2 day celebrity in my home and everybody fusses over me! It was my birthday again!! It's the same thing every year but I must say I enjoy every bit of the fussing! 

So every year I bake my own birthday cake and I get to bake whatever I want. Last year I made the Eggless No Bake Chocolate Chilli Cheesecake and this year I chose a simple Chocolate Mousse Cake! Oh how sinfully delicious this cake turned out to be! Mousse cakes are always a delight, I love my Eggless Mango Mousse Cake & Eggless Strawberry Mousse Cake.

The speciality of this cake is that I have not used any setting agents to make this cake. I know a lot of people don't want to use gelatin or agar agar and this works well. The cake as usual is one of my most favourites, the egg free dairy free chocolate cake and tastes absolutely delightful! And for the mouse I used my recipe chocolate mousse with ganache. Do make this cake and enjoy!

Soya Biryani | Soya Recipes

I am so much in love with the tiny soya nuggets, tastes so good and is so soft, turns out delicious in which ever curry I use it in. I have made soya masala and soya kurma using the same small nuggets and we loved that too.

My in laws were visiting us and they are vegetarians, they love soya so I made this biryani for them. This is a no fail, sure hit recipe!

I add a tbsp milk to a saucepan full of water and soak the soya to remove the raw odour, I have found this works well.

Murungakkai Masala | Drumstick Curry

Drumstick is one of my favorite veggie. Growing up, I was a fussy eater, did not like eating vegetables but then these drumsticks were a favorite even at that time! My mom made a lot of drumstick recipes and potato recipes for my school. It's such a wonder that I turned out to be such a food lover!

I have posted a murunga keerai poriyal recipe earlier and a murungakkai kara kuzhambu recipe too which I love so much! This drumstick curry is a simple fuss free side dish that goes very well with rice.

Varagu Arisi Thayir Sadam | Kodo Millet Curd Rice | Millet Recipes

Varagu Arisi also called as Kodo Millet in English is a very healthy alternative to white rice. Millets which were forgotten is now finding it's way back into many homes. We include millets atleast 3 times a week.

Kodo millet curd rice tastes very delicious just as any other curd rice and it's all the better since this is much more healthy. If your kids won't eat millets, you can try to make it as curd rice and they wont know the difference!

Carrot Rice | Easy Lunch Box Recipes

Carrot Rice is my fall back recipe whenever I'm thinking of my daughter's lunch box. If nothing else comes to mind then it's carrot rice for her and she doesn't complain! 

There are two ways I make carrot rice, one is this method and the other is, I make like how I've made this Peas Pulao. Mostly for my daughter's lunch box, I make it as a pulao - Carrot Pulao (which I will post later) where the carrot is cooked well. In this method, the carrot is crunchy. We adults prefer this carrot rice and my daughter prefers the carrot pulao. Either way this is a healthy lunch box option!

Check out the other easy lunch box recipes.

Soya Kurma | Meal Maker Kurma

Soya nuggets are so rich in protein next to meat, for vegetarians this is a wonderful alternative to meat. If you don't take meat and eggs then you can rely on soya nuggets to meet your daily protein quota. These soya nuggets are also great for kids who don't like eating meat. I prefer the small sized soya chunks to the larger ones. I have already posted soya 65 and soya masala
I love making kurma, my family too loves kurma for idli, dosa and roti. This kurma is finger licking good!

Fried Chicken Biryani | Chicken 65 Biryani | Biryani Recipes

Who doesn't like Chicken Biryani! We have it almost every weekend! For that reason I wanted to make the chicken biryani slightly different. In this recipe we fry the chicken first and then use it in biryani. The chicken pieces in this biryani is more flavorful and more tender and soft since it's cooked twice.
For a more simpler and quicker option, you can use store bought chicken 65 but I chose to marinate and fry the chicken and this was truly delicious! We loved this biryani!
