A very Long weekend with an award and Maaladu

It has been a long time since i wrote something in my blog.This long weekend started for us on thursday itself.We took my in-laws to Newyork and Niagra.They enjoyed the trip a lot.We had lots of fun.It is the first time for me too to visit these places.It was so lovable.

Lot of recipes are pending to get into my blog.But now-a-days ,i am so busy that i hardly get time to sit with my laptop.So my krishna jeyanthi celebration comes so late on vinayaka chathurthi in my page.

This year krishna jeyanthi was so nice having my inlaws with me.My mom in law taught me all the snacks that Lord krishna likes and we both made them.I think i can post them individually so that you all can make it and enjoy.
Today i will start with my favorite and simple tasty maaladu.

I am also so happy to get an award from Easy Crafts.She has a very good cooking blog along with many other interesting blogs.Thank you EC.I am passing this award to Shriya and Nithu ,lothi,madhuram ,aartee

Now lets move on to the recipe.

Chana Dalia ------------3 cups
Ghee--------------------1/2 cup
Roasted Cashews.

Fry the chana Dalia (pottu kadalai)lightly to remove the moist.
Grind it to a fine powder
Grind the sugar and make powder it.
Now mix them both along with roasted cashews and then make it as laddu.

This was the first sweet i made after my wedding and this is so simple you can make it any time.

Tomato Curry

Last night i was making chappathi's and so confused what to make for curry.I remembered this curry and made it.Actually my friend aarti used to do this often.With little changes i made this and it was good.

Garam masala----------1/2 spoon
Coriander Powder------1/2 spoon
Chili Powder----------1/2 spoon

Heat oil in kadai and fry fennel seeds,cumin seeds.
Then fry onion to pinkish and add tomato and capsicum.
When the tomato is mostly cooked,add garam masala,chili powder,coriander powder and salt along with little water and allow it to cook.
When it is mostly cooked just fry pieces of redchili and add to this gravy.

This tastes so good and extra chappathis were consumed in our house.
so try and let me know your valuable comments.

Tomato is so rich in calcium.So i am sending this to sangeeths's Calcium rich Contest.
