B'day Wishes

Today is Biju Charles birthday. This man....he's a gift. He's a gift to me every single day. I'm so glad that he has so much abundance in him, because it just extends to everyone around him - including all of you. It's so beautiful to witness that first hand each day.
Today he wanted to celebrate his birthday at an old age home, so we baked around 200 cupcakes and took it for them; it was such an amazing experience.
Made this marble cake for him with a replica of his very old Vespa scooter, which is as old as him and loves to drive it when ever possible. A big time critic of my cakes, hope he will like this Cake. Happy Birthday Biju

When North meets South - Punjabi Karela and Kerala Pulissery for Lunch

Taste has no boundaries, its how your palate can take it .

So here's today's story. I had an amazing lunch - thanks to the oven fresh grilled fish, salads, plus Pulissery ( curd curry) as we call in Kerala and Punjabi karela. All the varied dishes on the dinner table, vented out a unique taste & flavor to relish.

Punjabi Karela Recipe
This delicious karela dish is a great side dish to any meal ( rice or chappati) and it's simple and easy to prepare. Follow this recipe to make it in your home.

Punjabi Karela 

  1. 5-6 medium sized karela/bitter gourd
  2. 2 medium sized onions
  3. ½ tsp turmeric powder
  4. ¼ tsp red chili powder
  5. ¼ tsp garam masala powder
  6. ½ tsp amchur powder or dry mango powder
  7. 2 tbsp oil
  8. salt
  • Chop the karela into small pieces.
  • Slice the onions
  • Heat oil in a pan and add the chopped Karela.
  • Saute karela on low flame for 2 minutes. Reduce the heat and saute for 2-3 minutes more.
  • Now add the sliced onions and mix the sliced onions with the karela.
  • Saute for another 2-3 minutes and add turmeric,Chili and salt, stir well
  • Cook Karela without any lid for 7-8 minutes till both the karela and onions are cooked and sauted well. 
  • The onions will become brown. Keep on stirring in between, add on chili or salt if needed.
  • When the Karela is ready, sprinkle the amchur and garam masala powder. Mix it well.

Serve Karela with phulkas or rice and the punjabi kadhi, here I had something similar which is the kerala pulisery. Check this link for  Pulisery recipe.
