Happy Tamil New Year's Day. Adhirasam is a traditional Tamilnadu cuisine. It is mostly done during festivals especially Diwali. It is long process done for 3 or 4 day. The adhirasam maav is prepared earlier, and allow to rest for a week also to get the perfect taste. But can be done next day too. It is quite a big process but worth it. If stored in refrigerator, adhirasam maav can be kept for more than 6 months.

Paneer Tikka

I took a long long...... break in blogging. Happy to be here again :) Starting with a colorful appetizer. Paneer tikka is an Indian dish, marinated in yogurt/hung curd with spices and grilled in a tandoori. This is mostly done in oven but equivalently it can be done in stove top. A wonderful starter to go in a party.

Falafel is a middle eastern deep fried balls or patties served with warm pita bread. It is a perfect vegetarian food made with white chick peas. I shallow fried this for low calories. Adding vegetables is your choice, I wanted it to be colorful :).  It looks like a list of ingredients but all are simple and lies most of the time in our pantry.

I have tried the instant falafel mix, but it seems to be little dry. But this version you will love to the core. The sesame seeds enhance the flavor, I was out of it and did not use. Do use sesame seeds for perfect falafels in the cool evenings. I didn't serve with pita bread used taco shells instead. Stay tuned for falafel tacos :)

Coconut ladoo

This is one of the easiest sweet done under 15 minutes with only two main ingredients. The highlight of this sweet is it is vegan. Coconut mixed with jaggery and rolled as ladoos. This recipe was shared by my aunt. When tasted could not believe there was no ghee in it. The jaggery in it gave a nice glossy look too. Try this simple recipe if you are out of time......
