Vada Pav

I have had a lot of Indian food in the USA including chats, samosas and Indo chinese. But the one thing I really miss straight from our the streets is vada pav. I have had certain versions but none were even a close hit as compared  to what we get in Mumbai or Pune. So, I make my own at home to satisfy the street food cravings. Presenting our very own Indian burger.

Thenga Thogayal

I'm back to blogging after a short break!My kid has his summer vacation and I did not even dream that vacations would be so damn busier than the school days. Moreover my parents are here with me so I'm chauffering them all around the place, shopping et all. I'm really having a gala time but miss blogging a lot too. So, I said to my self that no excuse is good enough and I need to post atleast once a week.
Well here is a coconut dish which is  a perfect accompaniment to steamed rice.

Mavadu/ Vadu Mangai/ Kadukku mangai/ Baby mangoes in brine pickle

I have more than a single reason to be happy. One because blikki.com mentioned What's cooking @ Kavita's kitchen? as one among 10 great food sites to watch this summer. A big thanks to Joyce Alaxander the publisher of blikki.org. Check this out http://www.blikki.org/nutrition-june-2012/.
The other reason for celebration is my parents are here with me for vacation.So now you will see a lot of recipes cooked by my mom on this space and I'm going to take care of just photographing and blogging about it. Sounds cool doesn't it? So why the wait? Let's start right away with the first recipe which is baby mangoes in brine ( salt water) pickle.
