Roasted Cabbage Wedges

Cabbage wedge salad is one of my favorite roasted salads which you might have seen, but, the below one is a twist with mustard and cheese. I prepared this on last Saturday in a family get-together and believe me it was an eye catcher and was real yummmmmmmmmmmm.

This would be fantastic dish next to a main course or as a lighter lunch option also. Either way, if you are a cream cheese mustard fan, you'll likely love this, so be sure to give it a try.

Cabbage wedges salad ( serves 2):


1 big cabbage cut into small wedges

Mustard sauce (2 table spoons)

Chaat masala ( as per taste)

Black pepper (as per taste)

Bread crumps(4 breads grinded for ½ a minute)

Spread cheese or cream cheese (2 -3 table spoons)

Oil ( 1 tsp)

Add the cabbage wedges in a baking dish and then sprinkle bread crumps, chaat masala, pepper and 1 table spoon of cheese and then add another layer of bread crumps and sprinkle again chaat masala, pepper , cheese and mustard sauce. Add 2-3 drops of oil over the crumps and place the dish in the owen.  Roast at 350F for 15-20 mins (till the bread crumps starts turning golden brown) and then serve hot.

Fabric Button : DIY

I was always fascinated towards fabric buttons. A few days back only, my aunt told me an easy way to make them at home without any market supplies. That was the moment and I made many at home for my daughter’s frocks and other accessories.

“Fabric button” is a fun and the most simple fabric project and the only things required are: a needle, thread, a fabric and a button (recycle old clothes buttons).
Cut a square fabric of your choice, place your button in the middle and mark a circle at 1and1/2 inches from the button and finally cut it into a circle shape.
Now make a thread circle with needle as shown in the figure.
Finally pull the threads from the both ends and cut the extra thread.

Fabric button is ready to be incorporated in your other designed products…………agoodstuff : )

Green beans with garlic & sesame

This Sunday, I was just looking for a little variety in green beans, since we have made these only with potato or with rice for biryani’s or pulao’s. I tried a thai recipe this time and the final product was this delicious, flavorful and super healthy side dish that got absolutely devoured at lunch on Sunday.

Ingredients: Green beans, 1sp grated carrot Garlic, ginger, sesame seeds, dry coriander powder, red chilli, oil and salt.

Recipe:  Chop the ends of the beans and put them aside. Blanching process: Boil plain water and at the point of bubbles showing up, add the beans and a little salt to it. Boil the beans for 2-3 mins only and take them out of water before they change their color. Yes, we need the green of the beans do not over cook them.

Peel and chop garlic & ginger in 2: 1 ratio ( more garlic and less ginger). Now put a pan on the flame and add a little bit of oil. Add garlic and ginger to it and keep stirring. Now, add beans before the garlic turns brown.  Sprinkle grated carrot, coriander powder, red chilli, sesame seeds ( a pinch only)  and again keep stirring for 2 mins.

 ( optional: You can also add soya sauce and crushed peanuts at the time of serving).

Serve warm as a side dish……………………… :  ) agoodstuff

Beat the heat with this cool and refreshing summer drink.

All you need is a mango, 1/2 cup curd and an orange. Blend the mango pulp and curd with a little sugar. And finally add a tinge ( 3-4 spoons) of orange juice to make it more tangy and refreshing. Serve it chilled by adding crushed ice.

Ummmmmm……….totally irresistible……my kiddos favorite...........................  : ) agoodstuff
