Curry Leaves Chicken

Hey! I got fresh organic curry leaves from a local shop and they were so aromatic, so fresh and I don't want to use them the regular way, in tempering and all. So I tried them in this recipe and it was great!
I am not a big fan of non-veg in summers ( it's really hot here) but enjoy having it on weekends. This recipe with a little twist, gives it a very subtle taste of curry leaves. You can easily grow curry leaves at home and enjoy their freshness. Hope you will like it! Get the recipe here

Melon seeds-jaggery balls

Melon seeds are nutrients-packed super food but they are usually ignored. They are loaded with vitamins and minerals. Melon seeds are a good source of vitamin B, magnesium, essential amino acids, fatty acids, proteins and fibers. They help in preventing heart diseases, blood pressure, diabetes  and are also good for skin and boosting energy levels. So add melon seeds in salads, soups, gravy or even cakes.
 This recipe is very simple and common but instead of using peanuts(that is usually added), I've used melon seeds for the above mentioned benefits. Unlike peanut brittle (chikki), these balls are soft, NOT hard. And as we all know that jaggery is good for digestion, so these balls are perfect for after-meals sweet cravings. Get the recipe here

Cucumber Gazpacho

When we think of summer vegetables, the first name that comes to our mind is CUCUMBER. This crunchy vegetable has low calories, fat and cholesterol . It is a good source of potassium, anti-oxidants and vitamins. It not only keeps you hydrated but also flushes out toxins. And hey it's good for your skin too. You can grow cucumbers at home in a pot or in garden as well but try to buy organic seeds for more health benefits.
Gazpacho is a cold soup and is basically salad in liquid form. Before this post I used to think that we can't make gazpacho without tomatoes but after some research I found out that you can use any vegetable or even fruits. And that's how this recipe created! I've used one green veggie and one green fruit. So go ahead and create your own gazpacho, your style. I'll be glad if you share it with me. Hope you'll like it! Get thre recipe

Chocolate cupcakes

How you celebrated Mother's day? I baked my girl's favourite chocolate cupcakes to thank her for giving me the joy of motherhood. It is fantastic to be a Mother, isn't it? This recipe is the easiest I've tried and is really good. Ok, I have a confession to make :( , by mistake I put very little coco powder(1/3tsp instead of 1/3 cup), but but but  I fixed everything up and the cakes did their work. For some reason I could not click the original looking cupcakes, so yours will be different than my pictured cupcakes!
Go ahead and enjoy baking these delicious cup cakes! Get the recipe here

It is good for heart, skin, bones, teeth and protects against diabetes, cancer, anaemia and many more. So eat this wonder food as much as you can. And what's more, it can grow very easily at home, so grow your own ladyfinger for more benefits. This recipe is very simple, but the perfect blend of ingredients makes it very tasty and visually its very appealing, isn't it?
