My partner for this month’s Taste & Create is PJ @ Seduce your Tastebuds. PJ has a ton of quick and easy recipes and I tried quite a few from her blog in the past. But for this month’s Taste & Create, I chose a very quick and easy Mandakki Usal aka Masala Murmure from PJ’s blog.

I wanted to make something quick for my lunch one day and happened to this recipe on PJ’s blog. As she says, it takes no time to put together and is spicy and delicious. Since murmure don’t need to be cooked for long, the only time consuming part of the dish is chopping and cooking the veggies. I thought the addition of grated ginger really made the dish taste spicy and yummy!!
