Wish You All The Reader's Of Mom's Recipies a Very Happy And Prosperous Gudi Padwa and Ugadi


Happy Independence Day to you all


Tiranga is a hindi word which as such means Tricolour or three colours but for an indian tiranga always means our flag (In India, the term "tricolour" [Tirangā – तिरंगा (in Hindi)] almost always refers to the Indian national flag.)

The Indian National Flag was designed by "Pingali Venkayya". The flag contains three equal strips of Saffron, White and Green colors respectively. The ratio of its width to its length is two is to three. A navy blue color "Chakra" known as 'Ashoka Chakra' having twenty-four spokes, is present in the middle of the white strip. According to standard set down by ISI (Indian Standard Institution) it should occupy seventy five percent of the space of the white strip.The saffron stands for courage, sacrifice and the spirit of renunciation; the white, for purity and truth; the green for faith and fertility.

Onion Chutney


Here’s a recipe for a
chutney that is very easier to prepare. This is something I learnt from my mother-in-law.It serves as the perfect accompaniment to idlis and dosas.

Ingredients:-

Onion (chopped) - 1medium sized
Coarsely chopped Coconut - three one inch square pieces
Red Chilli Powder – 1 ½ tsp
Fried Gram Dal(Dalva)- 2 tbsp
Salt to taste


Method:-


  1. In a shallow pan, heat the oil. Add the onions, stir fry them till they become transparent and the edges turn golden brown.
  2. Turn off the heat and let them cool for a few minutes.
  3. When cooled, blend together the onions, coconut, chilli Powder,salt,Fried gram dal till it makes a smooth paste.
  4. Add a few teaspoons of water if necessary.

Tip: This chutney can be preserved for 3 days in the refrigerator, and is an excellent accompaniment to dosas, or idlis.
