Hi all
The blogging has become an addiction for me!!!!

I just cannot stay away from blogging, posting and very good entry from other blogger. This is taking my most of the time!  I am happy to be here, but I must take a break from this for few days, as I have two exams at the end of this month. There is so much to study and a project work to finish and submit this week. 
I will be missing all my activities for these days.  I will be missing all the participation for  the events! 
But, definitely, I will be checking all the updates from my sweet blogging friends. 
And if you get at least one posting from my blog during my break, don't get surprised. I am so much attached to this world now!!!!
Wish me all the best and I will be back after my exams.
We will meet next month. Till then, Saayonara!!!

Keep smiling,

14 mixed pulses gravy(reposted for the event)

Tried and tasted by Nivedita
Hi All,

Here is a recipe which is colorful and a very healthy for all the ages.
I prepare this at least once in ten days. It goes well with chapatis, hot rice or even just like that as an evening snack.

Here is the recipe,
Mixed pulses - 1 cup(soaked over night, washed )
(You can choose any pulses of your choice. The pulses I have used, you can see in the photo and with that I have added toor dal, yellow moong dal and chana dal)
Boil the pulses in a cooker just for one whistle with tej patta and haldi a pinch. Keep the same tej patta for masala.
Onion - 1 big, chopped
Tomato - 1 big or 2 medium, chopped or grated or even tomato puree will be fine
Tej patta -1 big
chilli powder - 2 tbsp
Dhania powder - 1 tbsp
Garam masala - 1 tsp
Haldi - a pinch
Hing - a pinch
(or if one likes ginger & garlic flavor, add 1 tbsp paste)
Oil - 2 tbsp
Salt to taste.
Fresh coriander to garnish.
Heat oil in a thick bottom kadai, add tej patta, onion. Let it cook till brown. Now add hing or ginger garlic paste. saute it for some time.
Add tomato and other dry powders. Cook till tomato starts leaving oil. Now add boiled pulses with little water. Mix it properly and boil it for 5 minutes. Garnish with fresh coriander.
Mixed pulses gravy is ready.
If you want to have is as a snack or side dish, let the water dry from the gravy.

This is going to participate in
