Sautéed Fresh Garbanzo Beans ~ Sautéed Green Chana December 8, 2010
Sweet Punch: Pear, Chocolate & Almond Crumble December 7, 2010
Sweet punch for the month of December is Pear, Chocolate and Almond crumble. I made this for Thanksgiving dinner and everyone loved it. I followed the recipe Divya gave us, with a few substitutions. I made one and half times the given recipe and used both store-bought pears and garden pears. My cousin sent some pears from California and I must tell you, pears from her garden are very sweet and juicy! In fact the pears I picked up from the store were tasteless and wished I had used garden pears instead. Despite the tasteless pears, the crumble turned out excellent! At least, that is the feedback I got from my nieces and nephews.

Broccoli is a very nutritional vegetable. Until few years ago, I did not like the vegetable and seldom cooked it at home. Once I acquired it’s taste, I like it very much and don’t mind making it at home once in a while. I usually steam it or just saute it in some oil with salt, pepper and some garlic. Lately, I have been making quick stir fry with basic Indian spices and some tomato, to make broccoli more flavorful. To make this stir fry even more healthier, I add some boiled egg whites to the fry. Egg whites are mostly for U, who loves eggs & meats, and is trying to eat healthy. Broccoli and egg whites stir fry is certainly a one healthy side dish to go with plain rice!

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.

Sweet Punch: Eggless Instant Chocolate Mousse November 7, 2010
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.
