Spicy Curry Rice




Spicy Curry Rice

This is not that famous Singapore Curry Rice. Instead I came up with my own curried rice recipe when I wanted to cook one pot meal. These days my cooking is limited to few dishes. If you look for some spicy but still time saving rice recipe, try this. Sure, you’ll like. When I cook this rice, my home is filled with aroma of the spices. Not only that; the spices add flavours to the rice while turmeric gives an appealing look.

Pan Fried Pomfret Fish

It is not a secret that most of us like to eat fried fish. Sometimes we don’t care the health benefits when it comes to the concern about the taste. A fried fish with crispy outside and flaky inside makes a mouthwatering dish for anyone. But how do you fry it keeping the maximum nutrient value? Select pan frying instead of deep frying. Always pan fried fish are better than deep fried fish.

Sri Lankan Breakfast in Anuradhapura



 
Sri Lankan  Breakfast in Anuradhapura
Remember I shared my experience with a road trip in Sri Lanka? Now this is the part 2 of the post.
We started day two, early in the morning to avoid the crowd and the heat. Our plan was to visit Sri Maha Bodhi tree before the place is too crowded. Sri Maha Bodhiya is one of the sacred places to Buddhists and is situated in Anuradhapura, Sri Lanka.

Sri Lankan Carrot Curry /Mild Spicy

Sri Lankan Carrot Curry /Mild Spicy
Sri Lankan Carrot Curry /carrot kirata


Do you like carrot? Of course, I like. However, usually I like to include carrot in a salad. But sometimes, I cook it as a curry. So, today recipe is a Sri Lankan carrot curry (aka Carrot kirata). In this curry, I cooked carrot with thick coconut milk using green chili. Therefore, the curry has a vibrant orange colour, which I really like. This curry is not so spicy due to addition of green chili instead of red chili powder. The way of cooking is really easy and good to prepare if you are in a hurry.

It’s All Good: Choosing Healthy Weight Loss


By Leslie Vandever
 


So You’ve noticed that there’s a little more of you recently. Your skinny jeans seem to have shrunk and your favorite skirt is somehow tighter across the hips than you like. Your cheekbones are vanishing and your jawline has softened.

Well, you can always buy a new skirt and jeans, and a little make-up, artfully applied, will take care of the rest.

Simple Sri Lankan Beetroot Curry




Sri Lankan Beetroot Curry

This is a simple and easy Beetroot curry from Sri Lanka.I cook beetroot in this method when I am in a hurry to cook. When it is cooked in thick coconut milk as a dry curry, it tastes much and well goes with plain rice. I really like to add the leaves of the beet to the curry. But most of the time I can’t find beetroots with the leaves.

How to create a Media Kit for your Blog and a Sample Media Kit



How to create a Media Kit for your Blog and a Sample Media Kit

If you are a PR friendly blogger, then a media kit is a must. Whenever a company or a PR agent contact, they will ask for statistics or some other data related with the blog. It is always possible to type and send back. But, it is not professional and on the other way, it is time consuming to type details for each email. Finally, don’t forget that a Media kit represents you and it is your brand!

Easy Egg Salad



Easy Egg Salad

I usually add salads to our meal simply because; it is fresh, easy and healthy. Sometimes I add hard boiled eggs too. In this egg salad, I added hard boiled eggs to a tomato, onion and green chili mix.It was fine.Just keep in mind to not to overcook the eggs. Once overcooked, the yolk looks darker and tastes different. It is not appealing too.
When I want to hard boil eggs, I simply use the steamer part of the Rice Cooker and steam it when I cook rice. Once rice is cooked, I remove the steamer from the rice cooker and rinse the eggs under cool water. In this way I prevent eggs from overcooking.
