Green Apple Chutney

I followed this recipe from Suma's blog and I should say, I enjoyed it most with hot pej (rice soup) and some pickle and pappad. Perfect for a cold day.


  1. Green Apple grated: 1
  2. Grated coconut: 1/4 cup
  3. Pearl Onions: 5
  4. 1 tsp oil
  5. 3 Dry Red Chilly (adjust to suit your spice level)


Grind all the ingredients and drizzle the oil. Serve with hot pej (kanji, കഞ്ഞി ).

Spinach Cheese Swirls

A very belated Happy New Year to all my blog readers ! I am very glad to say V gifted me with a brand new Black and Decker Toaster Oven from BJ's store recently. It costs around $65. Now I can make and bake to my hearts content :) . Since the Super Bowl season is nearing, I thought, why not make something for that occasion. I have often noticed the Spinach-Cheese Swirls recipe on the Pepperidge Puff Pastry sheet box and always forgotten to make them though they always looked delicious. I decided today to make them for the first time in my toaster oven. And I should say they came out very well and tasted awesome ! That was a new kind of lunch I packed for V today. I made a second batch after he left for office today and enjoyed them with a hot cup of tea while watching my favorite show - NCIS ;) . It was then that I realized, this can be a good Super Bowl snack. Here is the recipe :

Spinach -Cheese Swirls

  1. Spinach (frozen, thawed, and drained well) - 1 cup
  2. Puff Pastry sheet : 1 fold, thawed according to instructions on it's cover
  3. Any type of shredded cheese - 1/2 cup
  4. Parmesan cheese powder - 1/4 cup
  5. Onion chopped finely - 1
  6. Garlic minced / powder - 1/2 teaspoon
  7. Pepper and Salt to taste
  8. 1 egg beaten lightly with 1 tablespoon of water in small bowl


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degree F
  2. Line a baking tray with parchment paper and grease it lightly
  3. Combine the cheeses, onion , garlic with a fork in a medium bowl.
  4. Apply the egg wash on the puff pastry sheet
