Raw Banana Peel Chutney / Kachche Kele Ki Chutney

We make so many kinds of chutney in our day to day life and most common among them is coriander and imli chutney so I thought why not do away with them and try one chutney which is not made that frequently in our household so I made Raw Banana Peel Chutney or as some people call it kachche kele ki chutney. This chutney is really delicious and when you are eating it you can’t even guess what it is made of. This chutney goes very well with all North & South Indian dishes but tastes really good with South Indian dishes. So next time you want to make some different chutney with your food then do try this delicious recipe.

Navratan Daal Khichdi

It was the occasion of Makar Sakranti and I Though why not make traditional Khichdi as dinner but instead of making Khichdi the regular way I tried making it with combination of nine daal/lentils and the result was amazing. The taste and flavor was so wholesome and what a complete meal it was. Even my little one loved it so I found easiest way to make everyone in my family eat 9 lentils in one go Navratan Khichdi is not only healthy but also very tasty. And as the saying goes " Khichdi ke char yaar- Chokha, Chutney,Ghee and Aachar" so don't forget to eat your Khichdi with its char yaar.
