Favorite Herb In Garden

Cilantro is my favorite and my gujju dishes are incomplete without it.

Cilantro is so easy to grow . If you keep designated area for it, it will produce seeds that will fall in the ground and will produce more cilantro. I love to pick it fresh from garden.

Garlic is also so easy. Store bought garlic , just plant in garden and it will also help keeping pest out.

Used fresh cilantro and green garlic in mung soup.

What’s your favorite herb that you use regularly? Try to play in garden or pot.

Spend time with Mother Nature .

Happy Mother’s Day !!!


Do you love to grow flowers ? I planted glads bulb last year and this year they are growing nice and red is new color . Last year it was orange only. Also more flowers this year.


Avocado From Seed

Have you tried to grow avocado from seed that you bought to eat? And it never grew. I was in the same boat. This time I planted in summer in a pot and forgot abt it. It took forever but finally it did come up. It takes more than a month for it to sprout and then to see some green leaves seems to take few months. I was gonna use pot for something else when nothing appeared but then I dug seed and saw it had sprouted so I buried it again. And it did grow.

If you like to have house plants, then this will cost nothing . And it’s fun experiment.

So keep patience and forget abt it after planting. Also try in Summer , Spring and keep planting all avocado seeds after eating .


Sweet Potato Masala

Now in this age of Insta pot and so many cooking gadgets , meals are easy to prepare, isn’t it ? Sweet potatoes with spices taste good and you can eat it as a side dish just like that too. Recipe is from vahrevah. Here’s the link:

When you don’t know what to make for dinner , I like to boil , steam something even if it doesn’t feel appealing. Because when you get hungry and there’s nothing else you can make , it will be handy. So steam the sweet potatoes in your insta pot just enough so you can chop it on 1 of those days.

  • Heat coconut oil, crack some mustard seeds. Add urad dal , torn red chili, curry leaves, turmeric and red chili powder.
