Mutton Kheema Masala Kuzhambu/Minced Meat Masala

Minced meat Masala is my hubby's favourite, he just love this masala with anything. When served with dosas, idlies or else with rotis, one can enjoy this lipsmacking kuzhambu without any fuss. Its a prefect dish for meat lovers. Excellent to relish even with mildly flavoured pulao or parottas this dish is definitely a must try. My meat lovers at home are crazy fan of this dish, however i love to prepare this minced meat masala with both chicken and mutton. My today's post is Minced mutton, and i opted for pressure cooking method. Yes this dish is one pot dish, as you need just a pressure cooker to prepare this fingerlicking masala. However you can dish this incredible dish even  by cooking them in traditional way as much as like other mutton dishes. If you are a vegetarian, you can dish this spicy and flavourful dish with minced soya chunks, crumbled paneer or else with crumbled tofu.

Vegan Radish Greens Channadal Kootu

Radish greens are the green leaves on stalks on top of the root vegetable  aka the radish . Radish is an extremely popular vegetable in the world. Different parts of the plant, including the seeds, sprouts, and leaves, can be used both in culinary applications and traditional medical treatments. In some parts of the world, radishes are actually cultivated specifically for their leaves, as they continue to grow while the root develops.These radish greens have a peppery, earthen taste, making them an interesting addition to any salad and they can also be added to sandwiches or even boiled down and salted for a great side dish. These leaves contain much higher concentrations of certain nutrients than the vegetable itself, so if you are one of the countless people who simply throw away radish greens, change your ways and add this nutritious new food to your diet.
