I've decided that every time we get a new member from another country, I will do a search on their city and area. I'm really learning a lot. Here's what I came up from your city. If you have a better site, please let me know.
extremely sorry for this late reply. As i had taken a looooooooong break, i could not log in earlier and check the messages. since 2 days, checking everything.
Constance, pls chk the few links to know some more abt Banglaore. Wd be glad to offer more info
and Amber I wd be certainly offering plenty of veg receipes frm my side and coastal receipes of karnataka (both veg + non veg) receipes frm my hubby dear.
one receipe for a salad follows now :
(pls pardon my clumsiness with measurement - as i don't exactly measure the ingredients )
take a medium sized green cucumber (abt 8-10 inches long).
peel its skin and chop it into small pieces.
1 green chili: chop
few coriander leaves : chop
u can also chop n add 1 ripened tomato
add salt as per taste
mix everything well and add a cup of yogurt in the end and serve
it is a basic receipe. but seasoning can also be used :
put 1 tsp oil in a small pan and put mustard seeds. once they splutter, add curry leaves (if available) and pour on top of the salad and mix everything
if u find green chilie too hot, pls substitute with pepper powder which again gives a different taste
There are other variants for the above salad.
U can add a small cup of sprouted green gram (to sprout green gram, soak it overnight, drain water, and keep it covered for a day. the gram wd sprout).
if u want u can also add chopped onion (one small wd do)
