Half Fried Eggs in Coconut Masala

My mom didn't have a cook for daily cooking. But she had one who would come and cook when we had a large number of guests or if my mom had to go out somewhere. She used to make this desi-style half-fried eggs dish, which had onions, tomatoes, and grated coconut masala. I used to love it but never really paid attention to how she made it. She moved to a new house in Panvel after her husband retired and I gradually forgot about this dish. Then one day my friend and then colleague, Varsha, brought this dish in her tiffin. Now I am quite finicky about cold food and that's the reason I didn't like carrying a lunchbox when I was working. But this eggs masala tasted good even cold. I asked Varsha for the recipe and this time I made a point to remember it.

Stuffed Karela


When it comes to looks, Devansh is his dad's carbon copy. But luckily he has inherited my eating habits; he actually likes karela sabzi. I too have liked the stuffed karela sabzi—the way my mom used to make it—right from childhood. Although it's not impossible to cultivate a liking for this sabzi later on in life, it's best if we can get kids to eat this sabzi from early on. The list of health benefits provided by bitter gourd is endless really; to name a few—it's good for reducing sugar levels in blood and urine, it's good for constipation as it's a good source of fiber, it helps increase metabolism of fats, purifies blood, and strengthens immune system.

Cheesy Mushrooms in White Sauce

Devansh loves, no he LOVES, mushrooms. When we go out to eat and I order anything with mushrooms in it, I don't get to eat any because Devansh wants all the mushroom pieces. And you know exactly how many mushrooms they add in outside food right? Not enough to satiate the palate of a true-blue mushroom lover, which incidentally even I am one. So I thought of making something for Devansh where mushrooms are not a topping or one of the ingredients; it is THE ingredient. I knew he would even eat sliced mushrooms just sauted in butter, but I thought I will add some white sauce to make it a little more interesting. I mean I can hardly post that as a recipe on a blog right? :p As expected, the experiment was successful, with mushrooms, butter, and cheese you can hardly go wrong. Devansh usually takes forever to finish chewing food in his mouth but mushrooms he was chomping real fast so that I don't help myself to some while he's eating; I was lucky to get a couple of bites to taste. Hope your kids enjoy it as much as Devansh did.

Raspberry Banana Smoothie

I have had a blogger's block; if there's any such thing. :-) Paromita gave me this recipe a couple of weeks back and I have delayed posting it unnecessarily. But here it is now and the timing couldn't have been more perfect. Nothing like a yummy raspberry banana smoothie to beat the October heat. Paromita writes: This is not only refreshing but for mothers who kind of want to skip lunch, you can substitute lunch with this. Enjoy your smoothie!

Egg Curry

Devansh took a long time to cultivate the taste for eggs. I really really (I probably should add one more really here) wanted Devansh to start eating eggs because it provides the much needed protein in the almost vegetarians' (eggetarians') diet. Devansh didn't like eggs initially but now he absolutely LOVES them. We don't make eggs when my in-laws are staying with us as they're strict vegetarians. So I happened to make this egg curry, or anything eggs for that matter, after a gap of some two months. Devansh's response was something any mom can dream of, he had his lunch without any nataks what-so-ever.
