Cook's Hideout: T&T: Mahanandi

T&T: Mahanandi

Indira & Mahanandi don’t need any introduction. To me is like Whenever I want to make simple homemade food, the first blog that I visit is Mahanandi. There are so many easy to make Andhra recipes, restaurant-style recipes, simple food but presented clearly & elegantly with fabulous pictures. I have tried many of her recipes, but there are lot many that I’ve bookmarked for trying.

Here are some of them I have tried and tested for Zlamushka’s T&T event.

Puri: I followed the Puri pictorial to the T. They turned out just delicious and not greasy at all unlike my own puris that usually left you with a unpleasant oil taste in your mouth.

Chole: Again I followed recipe to the T.

Palak Pasta: I used Indira’s Palak Paneer recipe and instead of adding paneer, I added pasta (campanelle) and it was amazing. I fed my son the same sauce with his pastina and he was smacking his lips the whole time.


  1. I love puri and chickpea and this looks yumm.
    Lov ethe pasta with spinach too

  2. Everything looks yum. Love the new look.

  3. I made the spinach pasta too..Nice change in template..

  4. palak pasta is a nice recipe but I will settle down with poori chole:)

  5. Puri with chickpeas is a heavenly combo. I loved that u used pasta for Paneer. Must have tasted great.
