The beautiful view from Gunpowder


With such a huge backlog of post to update on TheFoodoholic, I stopped for a minute and looked for inspiration around. As I closed my eyes, I saw nothing but a huge cover of green… well, nothing but green. The blue from the sky merging into the green of the trees making it a hazy […]

Its Raining Coconuts: Payasam with raisins and coconut


Wrapping up the meal with a hot and steaming Payasam, loaded with raisins and the crunchy of the freshly greated coconut? I say Aye!!! Payasam is another quick recipe and loved by people of all ages. You can easily curb that sweet craving in the middle of the day when having tea or snacks. In […]

Its raining Coconuts: Vegetable Korma with Shredded Coconut


Continuing with the coconut frenzy, my next HOT item had to be a nice  vegetable korma… I believe it a hot favorite of vegetarians coz it gives you so many flavors in one dish. Moreover, depending on your liking you can combine various vegetables and leave out the ones that you don’t fancy. My version of the […]

Though I am told that the place has a smaller seating as compared to the original Dakshin in or near Chennai, […]

Mango and Tomato Chutney: Just the tangy you needed


I have come to realize that weekends are more hectic that the usual 5 day week. I mean one has to look after all the piled up chores, exercise, meet up wit friends, go out for a movie, maybe a dinner, shopping, head out to a spa and relax/unwind and rejuvenate. I sympathize with the […]

Beans Paruppusili


A recent visit to Dakshin made me try a new vegetable that is quite popular in South India. Lucky me that I was not given the usual option of ordering a dosa/ idli/ uttapam, I chose a vegetable stew in coconut curry, a dry vegetable and some appams. The food was delicious and from there […]
