Chetinadu Vegetable kurma

Woohoo it has been an year and 2 months since I started this blog. Very happy that i am keeping up with posting the recipes I make, sometimes I happen to take long breaks between posts also. Some of the recipes are half drafted and do not make it to the blog, while others are still in my head yet to be drafted :). Over the year many of my friends and family have got to know about my blog, some of them have tried a few of my recipes.. I started this blog as i wanted to save the recipes i experiment and those that get approval from my family… More in the coming year. There has been some life style changes as I have started to follow ayurvedic system. Many recipes I will have to experiment without adding tomatoes… Will keep the posts coming…Looking forward for another great year of blogging.. Happy 1st Birthday to my blog 🙂 ….

Here is one of my favorite recipes which has many vegetables cooked in chetinadu style which I learnt from my friend…enjoy!! (this one still has the tomatoes in the ingredients 🙂 ..)..
