Palkova / Thirattupaal/ Sweet Khoya

Homemade sweets are always special as you have control over the sweetness ( well, i agree you cannot compromise on the sugar added to a sweet recipe) however we can assure brown sugar or jaggery could be substituted wherever possible and free of food colors and any other preservatives. In today's recipe, i'm going to share about a simple two-ingredient recipe which uses cow's milk - its palkova aka thirattupaal (sweet khoya). The process is quite cumbersome, however with a heavy bottomed non-stick pan, you can skip stirring quite often and sit back and watch while it gets simmered without being burnt. Choose the right vessel for this dish and you would be rest assured a hassle free recipe. Let's get into recipe and the steps. You can use full cream milk or buffalo's milk instead of cow's milk. Cow's milk gives the best of taste you can ever get! Happy ready and hope you try out this recipe at your home and share your valuable feedback. Ingredients

Egg capsicum curry

Egg capsicum curry is little more spicy and equally tasty. The usual routine of eating either boiled eggs or egg burji or omlette is boring at times and we would like to eat something new recipe with boiled eggs. Capsicum is always available at our home, as i would prefer to use bell peppers in one or the other dish atleast thrice a week. If not one whole capsicum, atleast i use a portion of it in my lunch meals. Sometimes, i use all the colors available in the market for chicken skewers as they give a more appeasing look to the kabob! Each tastes different. The yellow bell peppers are spicy as compared to it's siblings - green, red and orange. The egg capscium curry is made using sliced onions, ginger-garlic paste, green chillies and garam masala. That extra hot spiciness to the dish comes from the freshly ground black pepper corns, fennel seeds and cumin seeds. Let's quickly see what goes into the pan for making this yummy egg curry. Ingredients: 4 eggs 1 large o
