Fresh Garbanzo Beans Pulao with Tomato Yogurt Pachadi November 12, 2010

Last week, I visited my cousin for Diwali and she made green chana eka fresh green garbanzo beans pulao.  That made me nostalgic!  Back home, every winter, these green chana, also called hari boot or hari bhoot would make it to the dining table very often.  At times, it was our  breakfast or evening snack as sautéed chana and sometimes  as rice pulao for lunch.

This is my first Sweet Punch participation and one of the sweets chosen of this month was Eggless Instant Chocolate Mousse. The other two recipes were Tomato Souffle and Chocolate Mousse with egg. I joined the sweet punch group just before Dasera and what better day to start off the new event than on Dasera! Hence, the sweet for this Dasera was eggless chocolate mousse. I also wanted to try tomato souffle before the deadline but never got to bake it.

Savory Onion Crackers ~ Baked Nippattu November 3, 2010

Deepavali or Diwali is next week and I normally do not prepare any savouries and sweets for the festival, unlike the tradition back home. This year however, seeing the preparations of fellow bloggers, I was motivated to prepare some at home. Sunday morning, I baked Nippattu from Red Chillies and she says baked nippattu are very popular in Bangalore bakeries.
