Beetroot rice: beetroot gave this beautiful colour to the ordinary steamed white rice and turned it into a special dish. Took just five minutes. A hint of lemon at the end balances the sweetness of the beetroot. My daughter called it red lemon rice

Spinach and cabbage salad: isn’t it lovely to be able to use your garden greens to make something healthy. I added a bit of grated coconut as well to the salad. A quick, healthy and tasty salad.

from my garden

I managed to have some greens from my planters the other day.

Beans with Spinach Recipe

Beans with Spinach Recipe

Just before her second birthday Achala was diagnosed anemic due to iron deficiency. It is quite difficult to make her eat vegetables. Most of  the times Achala eats only roti (Indian bread) and only chawal (steamed rice) without any dal (pulses) or sabji (vegetable dish). She is very choosy about what to eat. So I mix two or three vegetables to make a dish (which I think she will eat). In this dish I have used spinach and okra (ladyfinger) with french beans
