Khatta Dhokla

Today I post very famous breakfast recipe from Guajarati Cuisine, i.e. “Khatta Dhokla”. Under this recipe we prepare smooth batter with semolina/ sooji with yogurt and fruit salt. For tempering, use curry leaves and green chili, but we did not add water at the time of tempering.

Sooji Vegetable Toast

Today I post “Sooji Vegetable Toast” a great option for breakfast. This recipe is very easy and simple to prepare with in few minutes. Under this recipe, I prefer to use colorful vegetable like corn, tomatoes, onion, green chili, peppers and more. You can choose any veggies according availability or as per your kid’s preference. This is great option for picnic time or also for lunch boxes. In my family, kids call this easy bread pizza too.

Apple Banana Pudding

On the last day of 3rd week of BM, I post “Apple Banana Pudding” for lovely toddlers. This recipe is taken from Tarla Dalal sources which mostly prepared by my sister in law for my nephew. It’s really very healthy and easy to prepare within few minutes and also a great option for kids to serve different recipe instead of regular food. You can use any fruit instead of apple and banana but.....

In apple and banana, lots of vitamins and other nutrition value… because we all know “An apple a day keeps the doctor away”.

Moong Dal Khichdi

Today I post very healthy and nutritive “Moong Dal Khichdi” which is easy to prepare anytime with couple of few ingredients. This khichdi is very good option for toddlers… it’s a complete meal with rice, lentil and veggies…. You can prepare little liquid consistency which good for kids to digest.  

For adults… with little fusion, you can prepare this khichdi with onion and tomato tempering and serve with curd.

Monthly Series- "Foodabulous Fest"

Now the New Year 2013 is at our doors. On the New Year with new events that celebrates all the festivals and special days too.

India is a great country with vibrant colors, traditions, cultures, rituals, values and especially its lively festivals. So we can say India is a land of diverse festivals. Now a day’s celebration is not limited to the national boundaries. Today we will celebrate other countries too. Indians present several cultural festivals according to their own cultures. Basically the four major religion groups of India namely Hinduism, Islam, Christianity and Sikhism celebrate several colourful religious festivals in every year. 

Festival is a celebration of life. It brings peace and joy to the masses, builds family bonding and breaks the monotony of life. We can divide festivals and celebration in 4 type’s national, religious, seasonal and special days.
  • National are like Republic day, Independence Day, Children day and so many more.
  • Religious are like Diwali, Holi, Raksha Bandhan, Christmas, Durga Puja, Janmastami, Dusshera, Karwachauth, Lohri, Onam , Pongal, Ugadi, Eid, Ramzan, Easter, Bhaidooj , Navratri, Halloween and so many more.
  • Seasonal are like Teej, Ganesh Chaturthi, Baisakhi, Makarsakranti and so many more.
  • Special days are New year, Valentine day, Thanksgiving day, Friendship day, Mother day, Women day, Father day, Good Friday so many more.
Indian Festivals, celebrated by varied cultures and through their special rituals, add to the colours of the Indian Heritage. Some festivals welcome the seasons of the year, the harvest, the rains, or the full moon. Others celebrate religious occasions, the birthdays of divine beings, saints, and gurus (revered teachers), or the advent of the New Year. A number of these festivals are common to most parts of India. However, they may be called by different names in various parts of the country or may be celebrated in a different fashion.
Every celebration is centered on the rituals of prayer, seeking blessings, exchanging goodwill, decorating houses, wearing new clothes, music, and dance and feasting.

The emphasis laid on the different festivals differs in different parts of the country. For instance, Navaratri is celebrated with maximum fervour in West Bengal as compared to that in other parts of the country. Holi is celebrated with gusto in the north, and although it is also observed in the western and eastern parts of India, in the south it is almost unknown. There are also a few regional festivals like Pongal in Tamil Nadu; Onam in Kerala and the various other temple festivals devoted to the specific patron Gods and Goddesses of the temples, which are celebrated exclusively in those areas, which may be limited to one or a few villages. 
The event is based on the festivals and festive food that why I choose Foodabulous Fest, monthly based different festivals celebrated throughout India with great enthusiasm, from January to December.
