Gujarati Fajeto Recipe

Mango, king of fruits, season is in full swing!! Who doesn’t like the sweet, luscious taste of mangoes? When I heard about this Gujarati Fajeto Recipe from a dear friend, I just had to try it out. Also known as Mango Kadhi, aam ras kadhi or Fajeto, it is a Gujarati dish made with a combination of ripe mango pulp, yogurt, chickpea flour and a few selected spices. It is eaten specially with aamras and puri, but you can also serve it with steamed rice and phulkas.

Drumstick Rasam Recipe | Murungakkai Rasam

I’m pretty sure most of you agree that a South Indian meal feels incomplete without the humble rasam. There are many variations to rasam and this Drumstick Rasam Recipe is one of my favourites.

Drumsticks are widely used in many South Indian preparations and also in Bengali and Konkani cuisines. You can’t imagine what an amazing flavour this magical slender, green juicy vegetable can impart!! Only the insides of the drumsticks are edible – that is, the …

Chicken Rasam or Indian Style Chicken Soup

A bowl of soup may take up so many other names, call it broth, stew, chowder, gumbo, bouillabaisse, potage, bouillon….according to its texture, ingredients and also the cuisine it belongs to. Nevertheless, a bowl of soup by another name would be as comforting as rasam, a spicy South Indian soup, a must in most Indian vegetarian cuisine. But today’s Chicken Rasam or Indian Style Chicken Soup, my second post to the Blog hop theme “RASAM RECIPES”, uses almost the same spices used in the regular rasam – cumin seeds, red chillies, black/white peppercorns, mustard seeds – minus the tamarind essence and asafoetida plus …
