A few podis that I cannot live without. I make these once in about 2 months in small quantities to retain freshness. I used to get these from my mom, but she’s older now and I’m older haha, so started making rasam podi and molagapodi on my own, and slowly started making pretty much all the podis. Especially with the covid situation!
Minestrone is an Italian soup made mostly with vegetables, stock, beans, and pasta. This is a lifesaver for vegetarians eating out, especially if you don’t do eggs – most restaurants make it with vegetable stock, but I always check to make sure it is not made with meat stock.
The soup is hearty, and very satisfying on a cold and blustery night. And it comes together beautifully with not much effort in about 30-45 minutes.
This is a salad bursting with colors and flavors. I created this as a variation of the corn and black bean salad, and substituted boiled peanuts for black beans, and used my homemade dressing of olive oil/lemon juice, salt and pepper. Instant hit at parties, I never have leftovers how much I make of this.
