About Us!

My name is Swathi (Ambujom Saraswathy), and I was conceived and gotten Trivandrum Kerala, India and as of now living in Texas USA with two children and hubby. In the wake of completing my PhD in Microbiology I got opportunity to work in Japan, Sweden and US as a major aspect of my postdoctoral examinations. I got hitched in 2004 to an awesome individual who bolsters me in all things and had my first conceived young lady in 2009 and afterward had a child on 2012. In the wake of having children, I like to deal with kids and began this blog as side interest. I used to compose my plans, and once in a while the ones that I found from cook books and different locales in my note pad. I had finished right around two books, when my hubby said why you don't begin composing a blog. That will be a put down online account contrasted with these books. I began blogging as a set up account for my little girl who sometime may be keen on cooking. I constantly needed to trade thoughts and get tips from others about different dishes. Furthermore, all the while on the off chance that I could helps other people, at that point it would be an incredible inclination. Indeed a peruser has heaps of choice to take a gander at different nourishment web journals. The Veg Food kitchen contains plans tried in my kitchen and it has been affirmed by two little children and my nourishment energetic hubby. I generally attempt to give a legitimate choice about the dishes; in the event that it is bombed I won't stop for a second to place in the blog. I generally think about the individuals who set aside the effort to peruse my web journals and maybe burn through their effort and esteemed materials in making this dish. Henceforth I generally make a point to give a definite thought of what you can expect with a dish and clarify altogether the bit by bit with pictures and clarifications and the estimated time you have to make the dish.

Firstly wash all the bhindi under running water, strain the bhindi so that they are free from water. Wipe the bhindi with a cotton cloth and make sure the bhindi is all dry. Cut and discard the head and tail of the bhindi. Cut the bhindi into pieces large or medium size. How to cook the bhindi masala: Take a wok or cooking vessel. Into it add oil and heat it.

Cook for few more minutes. Once the bhindi is cooked soft, switch off the flame. Serve hot with phulka or chapathi.

WATERMELON JUICE RECIPE

Ramadan is almost around the corner and I would suggest to have chunks of this fruit or make a juice out of it quickly as empty stomach develops more heat inside the body and once we break the fast with dates, this is the best fruit to be followed that gives a big relief to the tummy along with the refreshing drinks. Cut the watermelon into two haves and then try to divide the half part into more parts and cut the pinkish pulp into small cubes using a knife. Making watermelon juice: Take a blending jar, add the watermelon cubes into it. Add sugar as per requirement. Add mint leaves. Close the lid of the jar and blend the juice well. Take a bowl and with the help of a strainer, strain the juice. Add black salt and lemon extract into the juice. Stir well. Discard the seeds. Take serving glasses, pour the juice into the glasses. Add ice cubes into the glasses. Serve chilled. Notes If the watermelon is sweet then take care of the quantity of the sugar added while blending the juice or sugar can be skipped if the fruit is too sweet. If the watermelon is less sweeter then do add sugar as per requirement or as per the sweetness preferred. Adding mint leaves is totally optional and they can be skipped if the taste of mint is not suitable. Adding ice cubes at the end or while blending can be opted according to one's choice. There are some watermelons where seeds are not attached to the pulp and in such cases juice need not be strained and directly served.
