When we started this edition of Blogging Marathon, Srivalli gave us some interesting themes and we were also given a choice of doing two themes a week. I chose 'Cooking without fire for kids' and 'condiments' as the theme for this week. For the past three days I blogged some recipes that kids will love and the moms need not spend time in front of the MW / stove top. A recap of those recipes.....
Day 1 - Fruity Breakfast Crunch
Day 2 - Bonda Juice
Day 3 - Banana Relish
For the next four days, I will be sharing some of the condiments from my kitchen and here is the first among the lot......
Of late I have been using a flax seeds in a lot of dishes. I add it to smoothies, use it as an Egg replacement in cakes, sometimes as a garnish, prepare spice mixes etc. I saw this chutney recipe in Priya's blog and had bookmarked it.It is a delicious side dish to go with dosa / Idli.
