Hope you are having a great weekend. We are enjoying the weekend at our cousin’s house in Delaware, kids are running around and the adults are catching up on what’s happening in life. Tomorrow we will all be back to business. My 6 year old wants 2 day week and 5 day weekends and sometimes I have the same feeling too, though I don’t say it loud to him 🙂
Our super talented blogger friend Valli @ Spicing your life & Cooking4allseasons has started another blog event called ‘Cooking from Cookbook Challenge‘, so starting today a group of bloggers will be posting recipes on the weekend from cookbooks, recipes jotted down from cooking shows, paper clippings etc. Like everybody I have a ton of cookbooks, 5~6 diaries filled with jotted down recipes from various sources, so I was thrilled when Valli announced this event. This will be a perfect way to try as many dishes as I can from my books and folders.
For the first week, I have a rich and creamy gravy curry that I made during the A-Z Andhra Dishes. I served it with Zafrani pulao and Kadhu ki Dalcha and it was a super hit at home. Recipe courtesy is a cooking show called ‘Just Cooking‘ n Maa Gold.
Original recipe had the arvi/ colacassia deep fried, but I didn’t see the need for deep frying. I shallow fried arvi in couple of tablespoons of oil and the end result was quite tasty.
