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......

Milagu Thattai | Pepper thattai

At last, successfully I tried posting two sweet recipes for this Diwali. This was so long in my mind. This is milagu thattai different from elladai or normal thattai which we add sesame seeds. In this milagu/pepper is added for a different flavor. My MIL do this way, my mom does the other way. Will try to post the elladai soon.....

Besan ladoo

Besan ladoo is the easiest sweet. Sweet done under 15-20 minutes. Many dry roast the besan flour and then mix the hot ghee. But when besan flour is fried in ghee the flour enhance the flavor of ghee and taste really good. I was out of cashews so used chopped almonds. The almonds fried in ghee was a wonderful combination.
