Mushroom Soup

Last week daughter was sick and was not able to eat anything because of tonsillitis. I was very hard to see her in pain even to drink water. The only food doctor suggested was to give her warm soup. It was quite painful for her in first two days even to drink liquid. Because she took antibiotics she recovered fast and is able to eat now. For her i learnt to make soups and since last few days everyday i am making soup. The other day  I made mushroom soup as demanded by my daughter. Here goes the mushroom soup recipe.


Mushroom 4
Chicken stock 3 cups
Pepper 5-6
Garlic 1 chopped
Onions 1 chopped

Hyderabadi Kheema

It's been a while i updated my blog. Was quite hectic since last few days. Wrote few post  on my Iphone while commuting home from my work place. These day i am using my iphone to take pictures and those pictures doesn't match with the pictures one can see on other blogs and websites. Here goes another famous recipe from hyderabad, hyderabadi Kheema, the spicy and tasty side dish goes every well with hot tandoori nana or roti.


Keema/mutton mince 500 gms
Onions chopped 2
Green chillies chopped 2
Curd 1 cup
Turmeric powder a pinch
Ginger garlic paste 2 tbsp
Garam masala powder 1 tbsp
Coriander powder 1 tbsp
Zeera powder 1/2 tsp
Pepper whole 6-7
Bat leaf 1
Tomato 1 chopped finely
Salt to taste
Oil 3 tbsp


Marinate kheema with ginger garlic paste, curd,salt,turmeric powder,red chilly powder and garam masala powder for 1-2 hours.

Heat oil in a pan, once hot add onions, green chillies,pepper and bay leaves. Fry till onions are brown in colour. Now add tomatoes and fry till oil start coming out of the tomatoes.

Now add the marinated kheema. Mix thoroughly and cover the pan. Usually water is not required when the pan is covered by lid. The kheema will get cooked with its own water and curd.
Water can be added if the kheema is not cooked. Add enough water and close the pan with the lid.

Serve hot with rice or roti :)
