2-Min Microwave Fudgy Mug Chocolate Cake

This chocolate fudge treat is perfect for those sudden sweet tooth cravings in the night and can be ready under 10 mins. Right now we all are in a situation we never thought we would ever be. And with limited supplies at home and no food from outside I am sure we all are craving for something which would lift up our spirits a little more and be positive in this gloomy situation. This recipe was shared to me by my biggest support, my critic, my little sister Annu who tried this 2 min mug cake. She said its a must try and it hardly takes any effort.
Well, I did try and she was right. This is one of the easiest and quickest cake I have ever made. I had seen this recipe many times but never ever thought of making it. Thanks to quarantine life and my sister, tested it finally and yum. All you need is few simple ingredients which mostly all would already have at home and a simple coffee mug or a bowl. So here goes the recipe.

Easy Sambar (without tamarind)

Sambar is a must in most south Indian families and like others even I have grown up having dosa- sambhar and chutney's. A Sambar is a lentil based vegetable stew or curry cooked with dal/lentils along with some veggies and some tamarind pulp. There are coconut based sambar as well and each region has its own sambar variation. In my house, we all prefer quick meals, but yet tasty. My mother who was a working lady would make elaborate meals only during holidays or special occasions. Rest all the meals would be quick yet very very tasty. This is one such sambar which my mom has taught me and is super quick.  This doesn't use tamarind like in a traditional sambar and gets its tangy flavour from tomatoes. Its quick, one pot sambar recipe. Lets dive in and see how its done: Ingredients: Serves 3 1/2 to 1 cup Tur Dal/ Yellow Lentils 2-3 tomatoes chopped (depending on size) 1/2 cup Veggies each of your choice cubed Turmeric powder A pinch of Asafoetida/ Hing 1/2 tsp chilli powder Salt

Chicken Stew- Kerala chicken curry (Video Recipe)

This simple recipe is every Malayalee's favorite and if you have Appams along with it, its heavenly. It is lightly spiced coconut milk flavoured curry with just a hint of spices. You can make it a vegetable stew by just adding some carrots, beans, peas etc or a chicken stew. You can also combine both veggies and chicken to it and make a delicious kerala style stew. It is mostly combined with appam (thin lacey pancakes) or idiyappam (string hoppers / steamed rice noodles). We also have it with breads and with dosa some times. The addition of vegetables along with chicken gives it a different texture as well. Many recipes add cashew paste to the curry to make it thicker. I usually make them without the cashew paste  and only add coconut milk with the veggies and chicken/ mutton. Kerala is famous for its usage of coconut, and this dish is no different to all the other kerala dishes where coconut milk and coconut oil is used to give that authentic flavour. Let's see how its
