Google to cook

What happens when ?

Camera Missing ….. Batteries Cells Missing for the Other Camera … OR you don’t prepare Anything Interesting / Non – Interesting then …

No Gossip in Kitchen :(

So what if no Gossip, I’ve too many old Gossip which I haven’t shared yet :P

Enough of Pakofying 8-} …. I met this huge food blogging world thanks to Google ! After that I tried and tasted too many of food blog recipes; but even today there are many recipes I just Google and still it leads to this space of ours.

Yeah I found these ones when I Googled, for something specific and guess what.. Met our friends there :D

Raddish Greens Poriyal

Though I often follow Malar’s vast blog cookbook, I found this recipe when Googled for Radish Leaves recipe. This was for our weekday dinner on one boring day, so wanted to prepare the Green in some new way.


Verdict: I am a big time nautanki especially wrt Green Vegetables while The Foodie loves anything veg :D So I had my apprehension about Radish Leaves. But liked this version with peanuts and red chili, it gave a very Maharastrian feel to the Poriyal :)

Aloo Bhendi

I wanted to prepare the authentic North Indian recipes all starting with Aloos :D So I started with The Foodies favorite Okra – I got a huge list of Authentic recipes ;;) but somewhere down the line I spot one of my favorite blog name – Sailus Kitchen so obviously I had to try her version of Aloo Bhendi.


Verdict: I had known that the typical North Indian spices are added along with the tempering stuffs in the heated oil, but never tried earlier. But this really helps each and every spice to get into every piece of okra. It was the perfect restaurant ishtyle of Aloo Bhendi. Thanks Sailaja :)

After two months of posting this Kitchen chronicle is hosting T&T-Saliu's Kitchen original event by Zlamushka, So off goes my Aloo Bhendi to this event.

So Do Google to Cook :D
