Noodles with peanut touch

 I loved the outside recipe from a store which I do not want to mention name. I got inspired from them, and started trying my own at home with linguine which I made it ready. So Linguine in peanut with little other ingredients I got the recipe and taste which I like. Adding a couple of veggies to make it healthy.

Onions - 1 chopped
Carrots - 2 grated
Brocolli florets - 1 cup
Peanuts - grinded (not total soft... but nutty flavor) - 1/4-1/2cup
Linguine - cooked as per instructions on box. (you can use other noodles also)
Oil - 2-3 tablespoons
Jeera/Cumin seeds - 1/2 teaspoon
Soy sauce - 1 spoon
hot and sweet sauce - 2- 3 spoons (can adjust according to your taste)

Method of preparation

The recipe is simple. Cook the linguini or noodles according to the package instructions. drain it and make them ready. Take a pan and add oil to it. once oil is heated add cumin and then rest of the veggies. once the veggies are slightly cooked, add the soy sauce and hot and sweet sauce to it along with the noodles (linguine in this case). Add the peanut powder at this point so that the noodles have it mixed in between. serve it hot once done.

Dondakaya Aloo Fry/Tindora Potato Fry curry

This was  a quick and fast curry made and kids will surely love it. I chopped the Tindora pieces very small  (vertical 4-6 slits and then 4-6 horizontal wise on them). I used teh bed bath and beyong chopper to cut both of them so that I can get same height of the pieces getting cooked and looks nice too.

Tindora - chopped very small (Cut vertically 4-6 slices and then chop into very small bits)
Potatos - try to chop them small too (may be a little bigger than tindora but not too big)
Red chilli powder
Salt to taste
Mustard seeds (optional)

Method of preparation
Take a pan and add some oil to it. When oil is hot then add cumin seeds and add the tindora and potato's to it. This curry will not take much time to cook as the pieces are very small. So make sure you are near the stove or stir it in between. Add red chilli powder, salt and coriander powder (optional). your curry is ready to serve. Enjoy!!!

Strawberry Ice-cream (made at home)

This is first time when I used my icecream maker to do some ice-cream at home. It is little healthy as it contains all the strawberries puree (from fresh strawberries).

I used the following ice-cream maker. One thing I observed is I reduced the sugar quantity and it turned out to be a little sour. As my husband says "it is just like I am eating strawberry :0 ". Well I took it as a compliment. 
 Here is the way I served them the fresh ice-cream. Since the sugar quantity is low, I served then in a cone. The cone biscuit compensated the less sugar and it turned out to be really good while eating. I topped it with little tutti-fruity. so Enjoy the view and I will post the standard recipe I used soon. Till then... Happy Cooking.....
