    Pudina Semiya (Vermicelli in Mint Sauce)

    This recipe is inspired by Pudina Shavige or Semiya Upma which belongs to Karnataka (State in Southern India) cuisine. The recipe is mostly the same but I removed major ingredients like curry leaves and urad dal (of course, without spoiling the taste) from the main recipe. So I didn’t use the traditional name. Also, I want it to make it convenient to cook with basic ingredients for people from all over the world. The best thing about this recipe is that I am not going to use any dry spice in it. Therefore it’s good for breakfast time when you shouldn’t take too spicy food. You can have it with your favourite chutney…

The word Gulab means Rose and Jamun is a type of black coloured berry fruit which is mostly available in India. Maybe because these black coloured balls we’re soaked in…

    Fruit Raita (Yoghurt & Fruits with Spices)
