I have been resisting the temptation to make these Pakodas for a long time now. Monsoon brings with it cravings for hot,spicy,fried food. I am not a great fan of fried foods, but during the rainy season it is difficult for me too,to resist the temptation of these delicious minty Paneer Pudina Pakodas- PPP J (Cottage cheese-Mint fritters). This Friday for the Monsoon Magic seriesI have a recipe for spicy Paneer Pudina Pakoda. This is one of the recipes I would list under my ‘Culinary Accidents’. This accident sure was rewarding. See if you like it.
Incessant rains and frequent power cuts have kept me off blogging for the past week. Getting to work and back seemed like a big ordeal when rain Gods decided to visit us for 3-4 days continuously. The only positive aspect was the lovely rainy weather (which makes you creep under a blanket with a book in hand, music and some thing to nibble) encouraged me to try some spicy hot recipes. Today, for my Friday -Monsoon Magicseries I have a recipe for Kutchi Dabeli or Double Roti. As the name suggests this recipe finds its origin in the Kutch region…
Rains and Corn (especially ‘Bhutta’-Corn on the Cob) go hand in hand. The fresh smell of the mud when it rains urges you to eat something steaming hot with a hot cup of Chai (tea). Steaming Corn Chat is another favourite ‘Corn-Monsoon’ recipe. Corn Chaat with a glass of garam garam (hot) chai _________________________________________________________Corn Chat recipe

Just few light pre-monsoon showers (monsoon starts anytime now) and I am already craving for spicy, hot, Bhajia’s..Samosas -all those Monsoon specialities. The cooling monsoon showers however, also bring along increased susceptibility to a lot of health problems and diseases, peculiar to this season. I like to start my day with a glass of Warm water (with honey and a dash of lime juice )alongwith a spoonful of Morawla (Amla Murabba/Amla Jam) to keep the doctor away.
