Wash and cut the tomatoes into pieces and keep aside. Roast the sesame seeds till light brown in colour and keep aside.Heat oil in a kadai and at first roast the green chillies and curry leaves and keep aside.Then add tomatoes to it and let cook till tender.When cooked allow to cool and grind all the ingredients together with a little salt.The chutney is ready Add the seasoning and serve.
  2. Cutlets are tasty and easy to prepare. They are an ideal evening as they are shallow fried and not deep fried.This receipe includes beetroot and potatoes. Children are fussy eaters and will love this one with the goodness of beetroot. The ingredients that one needs are three potatoes,boiled and mashed,one beetroot which is boiled and grated ,two onions finely cut ,a little bit of ginger garlic paste ,half a teaspoon of garam masala powder, salt,finely chopped coriander, red chilli powder, fine semolina and oil for shallow frying. Take a bowl and mix the boiled and mashed potato,beetroot and all other ingredients except semolina and oil. Mix well. Heat a tawa. Make balls of the mixture and keep aside. Take a ball and flatten it between your palms. Dip it in semolina. Pour a little oil on the tawa as the cutlets should not stick to it. Put the dipped ball on the tawa and add a little oil. Roast it on both sides till golden brown. Serve hot with tomato ketchup or green chutney.
  3. I think mozrella cheese is best to be used for pizza.It is better to use tomato puree ok tomato ketchup,which is readily available.
  4. i would like to try apple pie. The next is avocado---something out of it.
  5. yoghurt is made as mentioned by other members i.e previous curd to warm milk and allowing it to set for 6-7 hours.but the quantity of curd used has to be very little -a quarter spoon is more than enough.If the quantity of curd added for setting is more, than the curds will turn sour.In south india,curds rice is a must at the end of the food .The curd ,having the good bacteria in it is very good for health.It can be used in salads.Shrikhand is a swet dish made out of hung curd.It can be refrigerated for many days.
