vahreh vah is all about Inspiring others to cook..I think by now you catched the point this is the dish I made with Vahrehvahs receipe .....
From my childhood I am core fan of Bitter guard and would love any receipe made with it..
This was almost my 10th time in 2 months I reapeated this dish...
Most of the people I know some how dont like this vegetable ...but trust me you will love this one .
It will not taste bitter at all.....
Bitter guards- 4
onions big- 2
chilli pwd (according to your spice level)
amchur pwd(1 tbsp)
chopped corriander(1 handful)
ginger and garlic paste(1/2 tbsp)

scrape bitter guards , split it and deseed it.

Keep the seeds a side we will use them later
Now take a pan and heat oil in it.
add cumin seeds, fry them and now add onions.
when onion turns soft add turmeric, ginger and garlic paste,salt,basan and bitterguard seeds
when they are cooked nicely add the amchur powder, salt and chilli powder.

cool down the mixture.
now stuff this into the bitterguards.
keep some oil in a pan and cook them on medium flame by covering with a lid.
you are ready with your dish after 20-30 min cooking .
Serve with rice and enjoy your meal.

Simple whole Egg fry.

Here comes my First dish... expiration dates for eggs is approaching and i dont want to go with the regular fry and pulusu curries. So when I had the same conversation with my dear friend she gave me this recipe and asked her permision to post this in the blog too...
So frens...
Eggs -7( boiled and peeled)
peanuts- 1cup( i use my rice measuring cup here)
Fried chana dhal- 2 cups(putnala pappu)
Dhaniya-3/4 cup
Garammasala whole or u can use pwd - 1 spoon

For seasoning:
mustard seeds
cumin seeds
curry leaves
Oil (little bit more than what is necessary for seasoning)

chillie pwd( according to ur spice level)
salt (for taste)
turmeric pwd(2-3 pinches)

Fry all the Ingredients in pwd menu and make coarse pwd and keep a side
Now keep the pan and heat the oil and add the seasoning ingredients.
Fry them well and add turmeric .
Now add the eggs ( which are cut into halfs)
and fry them till they turn into nice golden colour with Turmeric coating and add the pwd
dont forget to add salt and chillie pwd to the pwd ( as I did that mistake).
