அனைவருக்கும் இனிய தமிழ் புத்தாண்டு வாழ்த்துக்கள்.

Happy Tamil New Year to all my readers. 

Rava Kesari is one of my favorite sweets and perhaps that was the very first sweet that I learnt from my mom.I have tried various versions of kesari using aval and semiya. Both these versions are relatively easier than Rava kesari. They do not form any lumps.

Enjoy this delicious Semiya Kesari for this New Year

This is a very simple pulao that I learnt from one of my friends.Whenever I feel like having a one pot meal but still lazy enough to make biriyani, I prepare this vegetable pulao in pressure cooker.It is quite easy to prepare with handy ingredients and goes well with paneer side dishes or just with plain raita.

Some recipes are too simple to prepare but tastes great. Peanut ladoo is one such recipe. When my mom does not have any time for preparing after school snack, I used to eat roasted peanuts with a piece of jaggery.My Grandma once saw this and suggested to make peanut ladoos instead. My grandma is an expert in making such delicious ladoos with her pounding stone.

Peanuts/Groundnuts may aggravate Pita. So do not take more ladoos at a time.
