This is a simple regular stir fry. It tasted excellent as I made this after many months. I remember a saying "Heard Melodies are sweeter; those unheard are sweetest. Something that is made after a long time tastes the best and gets more appreciation as if we have not cooked so good before..
Brinjal - small - 1/4 kg
Sambar Powder 1 tbsp - levelled
Big Onion (smaller in size) -1
Chop Brinjals and onions into thin strips lengthwise.
Heat oil in a Pan. When hot, add mustard seeds. When they start popping up, add urad dhal, curry leaves and onions.When onions turn translucent, add chopped brinjals. Fry for a while and then sprinkle sambar powder and salt.
Fry for few minutes until the masala and salt gets combined well. Sprinkle little water and increase the flame to medium heat. When the water is evaporated completely, simmer the flame and fry till it turns brown, crispy and done.
Serve with steamed rice and sambar or curd rice.
And, now coming to the awards.. I've this habit of preparing and distributing awards to fellow bloggers. To know about my first set of awards and why I started this, check out here. I am not very good in photoshop but did my best to personalize awards..
Who else can motivate others other than Priya suresh of Priya's Versatile Recipes. She is enthusiastic, completes challenges on the day 1 and innovates recipes with different combination of ingredients. I think she can cook with anything and everything. Few months back, I saw a cookie recipe in her blog and thought would give a try. Somehow I forgot to bookmark it. When I went to her Recipe Index page, I was scrolling on and on, It didn't come to an end. Meanwhile, I got interested in many other recipes and bookmarked them without forgetting . At last, I forgot what I was searching for. Till now, I am not able to recall it.. As a person, she is really wonderful. She comments even in a beginner's blog when I find some experienced bloggers do not love to. I think Divya Pramil has also mentioned this in one of her posts. Well, she deserves this Motivating blogger Award.
Shanavi of Kitchen secrets and snippers gets this Stylish Blogger award. I like the appearance of her blog, so neat and organized with awesome clicks. I simply like her power point presentation in the main page. She is very lovable. She told me my blog is neat and organized; I was really shocked as I was just waiting for a chance to tell her the same. I've much more reasons to explore her blog. I've bookmarked a few of her non veg recipes and sweet recipes.
I came to know about her and her blog very recently. She is famous not only for her clicks but also for her cutlery she collects. Who is she? She is none other than Preeti Tamilarasan of Indian Kitchen. In FB, few have commented that they are going to steal her cutlery. I think all of us would like to see her haul post with all those materials she uses while clicking. She makes her image much more artisitic with those different cutlery and background. She knows what to use. She is very lovable person to help me when I chatted with her for the first time. I wanted help to resize images; she told me how she does. She gets this Fantastic Food Photographer award.
Another stylish blogger is Divya Pramil of You too can cook. I think she needs no introduction. She runs the SNC event successfully. Her blog is stylish and looks very professional and ofcourse with mind blowing clicks. Can anyone think of making a desert with Idli? She does. Her recipes are stylish too as her blog. I do not know her much personally. But I've heard through others how lovable she is..
I've so many favorite recipes from you all gals. This time, it is very difficult to name a few. I request the awardees to collect the awards from this page. I've some more bloggers in my mind to be awarded. I will try to create awards personally for them in future..
