Hi !!! I am back again :-) Gautham's school has started. Since he is in LKG they asked parents to wait there, after coming back in the hot sun I was so.. tried. My sister visited us, so I was little busy. since i am coming back after dropping back both the kids, I will be updating my blog and i will visit all your blogs too.

My daughter likes to take chapati for lunch. So, i have to think something daily, which should be a balanced diet and nutritious. Usually, i grind my atta by adding Soy bean and Channa to make protein rich. I add any vegetable to that and give her with Curd. She likes it so... much.


Palak leaves chopped - 1 cup
Chopped onions - 1/4 cup
chili powder, salt and garam masala to taste
Atta required to make dough


1. Steam the palak leaves in microwave.
2. Combine palak, chili powder, garam masala , salt and add atta to make a dough.
3. Roll it as chapatti,
4. Heat a griddle and toast the roti with Ghee.
5. Serve with Curd.

Green Buttermilk


Curd - 1/2 cup
Cilantro - 1/2 cup
salt, pepper powder as per taste


1. Grind the cilantro and extract the juice.

2. Add curd, water , salt and pepper powder to that and blend well.

Thank you gals for the lovley comments. It really means lot to me.

I have never tried the combo of cilantro and pepper in buttermilk...nice cooler vidya!:)


Hi vidhya,
thx for stopping by my blog and ur comments dear....Ya, about cakes, u really dont need an oven. My mom makes cakes in her non-stick saucepan by keeping the lid tight and in very low flame. I used to make all cakes in this method before i had oven including brownies. They take lesser time. Just see if the middle part if springy to touch and well risen. Its just that like oven, it doesnt brown on top wen u cook in gas stove.

Loved the buttermilk drink. Cilantro is one of my all time fav herbs - never thought of adding it to buttermilk. With a dash of pepper, it sounds irresistible, especially during summer.
