Almost every Indian will have some childhood  memories associated with Coconut buns. Right from Bakeries in the cities to the Laalaa Kadai (Mobile shop in a tricycle) in villages, coconut bun used to occupy a special place. I wanted to try these buns for a long time and came across this eggless recipe from Mahi's kitchen.The recipe is quite simple. I have a love and hate relationship with baking with yeast. But luckily so far all my attempt with  Thengai buns has been good.

My son loves anything that has coriander in it and he loves coriander rice. Usually I mix kothamalli thokku or thogayal with rice for an instant version of kothamalli rice. I came across this flavorful recipe here and I have been making coriander rice only this way since then.The author (Nags) has mentioned that the original recipe called for mixed vegetables. However I think the recipe goes well only with green peas as tried by her.The ingredients might sound simple but the flavor and taste of the rice was great.

Both my kids love chocolate chip cookies and it is one of the recipes that they are always willing to help me out (so that they can gobble few chocolate chips).I came across this recipe here and immediately tried it with my kids.The cookies turned out to be great. I have tried other recipes for chocolate chip cookies before and I would say this recipe is the best so far.The recipe is quite simple for beginners as well.
