Keema Parwal

It is a spicy semi-dry preparation of parwal cooked with mutton mince.

Instead of stuffing the keema in the parwals, as we do in potoler dorma, I tried out this way. It came out very well. Have it with naan/chapatti. For veg. version, you can use soya granules, mushrooms or rice.

Tindora (Ivy gourd) masala

Tindora is very popular in the South, especially Andhra. I prepared this dish with a tempering of mustard, curry leaves and asafoetida and finishing off with a combination of masalas like coriander, cummin, sesame and red chillies. I used lemon juice instead of tamarind for that tangy taste. Goes well with chapattis or as a side dish.
