Last week lot of things came in between,so I couldnt able to do blogging.Hope you are all doing good.Last week I celebrated my birthday,I turned 26(yeah I am pretty young).It was great.Strawberry margaritta and stuffed mushroom are nothing to do with my birthday.These are in my draft for so long time.
In my life I always came across this circumstance like, if there is any good thing is happening to me soon I will face some bad thing.Same If there is any bad thing happening to me,soon I will face some good thing.So instead of worring for the bad thing that happened, I started enjoying it because I know soon, something good going to happen.Ok I dont want you gals to get bore with my stupid philosophy.Letz get back to the margaritta.
I am huge fan of margaritta.I love any margaritta my favorite is lemon lime..I love sour taste.But I tried this strawberry margaritta for the first time I love it.Something to go along with it we had this stuffed mushroom its vegetarian.
For Margaritta You need
Strawberry Margaritta Mix-3 cups
crushed ice-1 cup
margaritta salt-to rim the edges(optional)
Fresh strawberries-for garnishing
Mix the strawberry margaritta mix,tequilla and crushed ice in a cocktail shaker.Give it really a good shake.
Rim the edges with fresh strawberries and immerse it in the margaritta salt.
Pour the mix in the glass,add the fresh strawberry in the glass
For Stuffed Mushroom you need
Medium sized Mushroom-8
potatao-1(medium boiled and mashed)
Gring the onion,garlic and green chillies to a paste.
Remove the stalk from the mushroom and chop it finely
In a wok add some oil and fry the grinded mixture until the raw smell goes off.Add the potato and the stalk of the mushroom.Fry it for few mnts.Stuff mixture is ready
In a oven plate arrange the mushroom and stuff all with the stuff mixture and top all with some cheese of your choice.

Thanks a lot gals..I feel so honored..Thanks again.
We just bought these brinkmann four burner gas grill.
Oh my god it was awesome.The chicken grilled in a gas grill was totally different than the oven method,because of the open fire.My hubby dear marinated and grilled the chicken.I have to admit that He did an awesome job.He made it like a pro.This is one of our dish in our barbeque party.But at that time I couldnt find time to take pictures.But my hubby dear made it again for me..its so nice of him..He also promised me that he is going to make it every weekend until the summer..It doesnt have any fat involved so its an guilt free dish..
Chicken legs-1 lb(cleaned all skin removed)
shan tandoori masala-1/2 Packet(use less if you like it mild)
lime juice-from 1+1/2 limes
Ginger garlic paste-1+1/2 tbsp
Mix all the ingredients together and marinate the chicken for over night.
Heat the gas grill to 400 degree place the chicken and close the lid.
After few mnts turn and cook in the other side..until both the sides are nicely browned and cooked fully
Garnish it and enjoy!!
You can also add some onion and peppers coated with the remaining mixture and grill it and have it with your chicken.

I guess I have already mentioned that my hubby is a huge snack fan.Whenever I make him pakoras he will be so happy..When my hubby was a kid he used to love Bajji(deep fried snack),so one day he was crying to his mom to make bajji..but his uncle was thier it seeems he didnt like kids behaving cranky like this .So what he did you know.. he made almost 50 bajji asking my hubby to eat all that..My hubby dear ate all that..So after that you all know ,he never asked his mom bajji in near future...
I tried the same way with my son who used to love choclate like anything..I almost gave 10 chocolates at the same time...He ate all that..After an hour he came to me again and asked can I some chocolates mommmy...I thought oh my god these chocolates and kids are inseperable..
To make this Snack little healthy I added some spinach..Ok girls I can hear you are all saying.. What is a point in making healthy in a deep fried snack..ha..ha..
Spinach-2 handfull(finely chopped)
Rice flour-2 tbsp
Onion-1/2 (finely chopped)
Green chillies-2(finely chopped)
Boil the semiya and then drain and wash it off with cold water and keep it aside.
Add the rice flour and the remaining item no need to add any water.rice flour will act as an binding agent and give crispiness to the vada.
Heat the oil and and make the vada using batter and deep fry it.
I always need onion and tomato to cook..Whenever I start cooking my first step is cutting the onion..If I dont have onion/tomato in pantry/refridgerator I feel like like there is nothing to cook.At those time morkulambu is one of my saviour,it doesnt require onion/tomato.You can add vegetables like white pumkin/arvi to this gravy..Even carrot is good.This gravy is tamilnadu speciality..This goes well with the rice,you dont even need any side dish just a pickle will work good..
chana dhal-1 tbsp
toor dhal-1 tbsp
turmeric powder-1/2 tsp
Ginger- a small piece
Soak the Dhal and dhania in water for 30 minutes and grind it along with the ingridient given under the grinding section
Beat the curd well with water and add the grided mixture to it.
In a kadai fry the okra until it slightly turns slightly brown,now add the curd mixture to it and add salt and turmeric powder
Boil the mixture until the bubbles comes out switch off the stove,and tempered it..
Viola your morkulambu is ready...Enjoy it with Hot rice and hot pickle...
