[VeganMoFo 2014 Recipe] Sprouted Moong Dal Chilla (Cheela) + Two Book Giveaways To Win: Hot Tea Across India and The Cast Iron Skillet Cookbook


Once a week, I make today's dish (Sprouted Moong Dal Chilla) as our breakfast especially for that extra protein kick from the sprouted legumes. A simple chutney on the side and we are not hungry again till lunch; it is such a filling snack too! Also, today is the last day for the book giveaways I planned for 12 lucky readers of this blog. Time flew and still can't believe it is end of the week. There are two more books up for grabs today and scroll down to participate. I will randomly choose and announce the winners on 30th September morning. Two more days to leave a comment on the respective posts. Lady Luck might favor you. Enter today!

[VeganMoFo 2014 Recipe] Minapa Vadiyalu Pulusu | Black Gram Wadi Curry + Four Giveaways To Win: Rude Food; Gluten-Free, Sugar-free Cookbook; BongMom's Cookbook and Quick-fix Indian Book


Like many of you out there I am a HUGE lover (read as hoarder) of cookbooks and books based on food writing. I don't need any reason in particular to buy one. Sometimes it's the theme of the cookbook; sometimes the author; sometimes the reviews are so great that I can't stop myself from ordering a copy; sometimes it is as silly as the book cover. Whatever may be the reason, now I have a selection of books that I seldom use and book giveaways to few lucky readers was something I wanted to do since a long time. I handpicked 12 such books (4 of which are featured today) that I simply loved for each day of this week. Winners will be randomly picked and there are few more simple ways to increase your chances. Scroll down to the end of the post for more details on how to participate. Don't forget to check out (if you haven't already) on Day 1, Day 2 and Day 3 posts as well. All it takes is to leave a comment and we never know, you might be THE winner. Enter and try your luck! Click here to access all book giveaways on a SINGLE page.

Also, since it's VeganMoFo, a vegan friendly recipe is a must. Today, I made amma's favorite dish - a tangy curry with fried black gram (urad dal) wadis. On days when your tastebuds are craving for a different yet simple curry, try this. There is something really magical when fried wadis are dunked in onion-tomato-tamarind flavored stew. The wadis absorb all the juices and the result is truly wonderful. Rice is the best accompaniment and if are a non-vegan, don't forget to add a tsp of melted ghee on top.

If there is always one accompaniment while having breakfast at my mum's place, it is definitely this Under 15 minute Easy South Indian Coconut Chutney.
