DSC_0021 copy

Hello Everyone 

Happy 150th Canada !!!

My home for past 6 years is 150 years young now.  I have a lot of fond memories about this place . I found out my passion for cooking , photography and brought back my passion for sining in my life . I am always thankful about all these little things in my life, to honour those am bringing a recipe for you all 

I thought of writing a very simple recipe which you can use it for todays BBQ . Yes we love our BBQ and during this day in particular. I am bringing you all grilled corn in 2 ways , one with a spicy tomatillo salsa and a simple lemon butter . A very simple recipe , easy to make , crowd pleaser as well as a very kid friendly dish. I don’t have many things to say about the recipe because its such an easy recipe. But you must be wondering what is a Tomatillo, it is a Mexican Green tomato which is really tart and used in making various salsa, sauces and dishes. I have attached a picture of some home grown fresh Tomatillo.

Let’s get into the recipe then . 

First I will write the tomatillo salsa recipe , then the grilling techniques and will leave in the notes how to make the lemon butter .

Ingredients
  1. Whole Corn - 4
  2. Tomatillo Salsa - 3 to 4 tablespoons (Recipe is written Separate )
  3. Lemon Butter - as required for flavouring (Recipe in notes)
Instructions
  1. 1. Heat your grill according to the instructions , I most certainly prefer a charcoal grill for the best flavour but you can also use the regular propane one for this .
  2. 2. Place the husked corn on the hot grill , brush some oil on top and grill it for 15 minutes by turning sides or till it is slightly charred like in the picture .
  3. 3. Spoon the salsa or the lemony butter on top off the corn and enjoy it hot
Lemony Butter
  1. 1. Bring the butter to room temperature first , it should be soft enough to whip it.
  2. 2. My ratio was 1/4 cup butter , half lemon juice and little salt you can change it according to your preference .
  3. 3. Using a hand held beater whip butter , lemon juice and salt thats it .

Kanda Batata Poha -Spicy beaten rice flakes with onion & potato

Poha 1

 

Hello Everyone 

Today I am bringing you all a a very delicious staple breakfast dish from western parts of India . this dish is famous in several states around India , I made one which is closer to the one made in the state of Maharashtra . This recipe is not an authentic one , its my take on this delicious dish , I have adopted flavours from few south Indian dishes because I like to do that with every dish I cook . So if you see there is a difference from the authentic recipe what your mom or mother in law might have taught you , please don’t punish me LOL 😉 . So I dont have much to talk about this recipe , its not taught nay my mom , I learned it as a necessity after I moved to canada in 2012 because my husband loves it . 

When I made it for the first time , I messed it up so much this dish turned out to be a big goop of carb lol . Then I had to watch several videos , read a bit how to make it properly without making a goopy mess . I have watched a lot of videos like veg recipes of India , vah re vah , manjulas kitchen , nishamadhullika ; I can’t determine from where I formulated this recipe I think its a mix from all these . 

So I am going to stop blabbering and give you the recipe .
