Media feature and Navratri Sundal recipe.


First up, I would like to share that I was featured in NDTV Hindu where there was an interview of mine regarding blogging and how regional blogs have been gaining momentum. I do not know how to get hold of the video. But it was a different feeling seeing myself on TV.

Secondly I was featured in Indian Express. Please check the link Vegetarian Food options for a change

Thirdly my blog was featured in Prismma, an online digital decor magazine.Shalini@Sanctified Spaces.

This festive season has been so kind to me. Thank you to the azure blue! 

The goddess beautifully adorned

I did make Sundal during Navratri. Do check the recipe here.

Ingredients
Sprouted Green Gram-1/4 kg
Grated Coconut-2 or 3 tablespoons
Turmeric a pinch 
Salt to taste

For tempering
Oil-1 tsp
Mustard-1 tsp
Urad Dal-1/2 a tsp
Hing-a pinch
Red Chilly-2 or 3
Curry Leaves-a sprig

Method- Boil green gram with enough water, salt and turmeric. Cook well till done. But this should not turn too mushy. Now temper the ingredients given above and add it to the green gram. Take this mixture off the pot and add grated coconut. The content of folic acid increases when green gram is germinated and this is a good source of protein too. This is nutritious and simple to make. One can incorporate this sundal in their meal everyday. This tastes great too.
