Friday with a Friend 5th Guest Post in Mahaslovelyhome by Subha of Subha Dairy Free Treats | Baby Corn Mushroom Masala | Vegan Gravy Recipes |

 last week I missed posting a guest post. Actually, It was Priya`s menu choice to share a guest post, but I think she was busy and missed sending the recipe. Anyway, I`ll try to contact her again. By the way, this Friday, we have a beautiful guest and a nice post too. She is Subha who blogs at Subha`s dairy-free treats. Yeah..she posts dairy free recipes.
You can find lots of food blogs which sharing all kind of recipes, but there are very few blogs which share dairy-free recipes, For those who prefer dairy-free baking can enjoy her space...Though I met her recently, likes her and her recipes always which are very healthy. I should say thanks to Fb who introduced so many good friends here. When I asked for a guest post she accepted it without doing any late. In her busy schedule also, she tried to find some time and sent recipe and answers...Such a sweet lady she is...Thank you so much, Subha and I wish you very all the best in your life. Keep blogging. keep sharing wonderful recipes..:)

1    1.Few words about u/some thing special which we don`t know??      
      Few words about myself : I am a fun loving person who enjoys cooking, listening to music and driving. My life revolves around my 7 year old girl and her interests. I love watching Malayalam and Tamil movies.

2. 3 Food photography tips or  3 useful kitchen tips??
2.       3 Kitchen tips – 1.  Follow your intuition and try new ingredients in recipes you feel comfortable cooking and most of the time it would be a great success. 2. Look for fresh and healthy ingredients when you go to the supermarkets or fruit and vegetable markets. 3. Cook fresh everyday – It takes a bit of effort and planning to practise this but it creates a big positive impact in one’s life.

  3. How to imporove fans n followers for food blog n food bog face book page?? 
3.       How to improve fan following on FB pages and blog – Always post quality content on the blog. Share recipes on various foodie groups and create a rapport with other bloggers. These really help in making your presence felt in the blogging world.

4. How food blog changed ur life? How many recipes your posting in a month approximately and your memorable moments which related to blog?? 
4.       How food blog changed my life – First of all, it gave me a lot of confidence. I started blogging with a purpose – It was very hard for me to find recipes which are dairy free (especially cakes, cupcakes and muffins) when I started baking for my little one. I wanted to create a blog with only dairy free recipes so that the milk allergic people can also enjoy yummy treats which suit their lifestyle. It brings me great joy when someone says that they could make cupcakes for their little ones (dairy allergic) or that they enjoyed a tasty dairy free meal following my recipes. I have got a lot of good friends through blogging and it wouldn’t have happened if I had not started it..

 5. Finally, tell me a few words abt MLH??
5.       Mahas Lovely Home is a great place to find a variety of recipes – be it Vegetarian or Non-Vegetarian, North Indian or South Indian..Mahas Lovely Home has all of them with step wise instructions. Another great feature of the blog – It has got a section “Conversions of baking ingredients” which is very helpful for beginners and experts alike. Love this blog and will definitely keep coming back..


Usha Rani or Maha needs no introduction – she is a very talented and energetic blogger and runs the Maha’s Food Collection Group for all bloggers to share their recipes. When she asked me to do a guest post I did not have to think twice. I am quite amazed by her dedication towards blogging and I have always thought how she manages her time with two kids and do so many blog posts continuously. That clearly shows her passion towards blogging. Thank you, Maha for inviting me to your space and I feel very happy to share this recipe with your readers.

Mushroom Babycorn Masala

This is a very flavourful dish that goes very well with Rotis / Chapathis or even rice. We love mushrooms and babycorn at home. This dish is one of my daughter’s favourites. Hope you all like it..
Chopped mushrooms
1 cup
Boiled and chopped baby corn
1 cup
Sliced onions
1 /2 cup
Chopped tomato
1 cup
Bay leaf
1 or 2
Cinnamon stick
I small
Chopped ginger
1 tbsp
Chopped garlic
1 tbsp
Garam Masala (optional)
1 tsp
Coriander Masala
1 tbsp
Cumin seeds
1 tsp
Red chilli powder
1 tsp
Green chillies (optional)
1 or 2
KasuriMethi (crushed and heated on a tawa)
2 tsp
Coconut milk
1/4 cup
as needed
as needed
KasuriMethi (crushed and heated on a tawa)
2 tsp

Method of Preparation:

1.       Wash and boil the baby corn in water until they are done. Chop them into small pieces and keep aside.
2.       In a pan, heat a little oil. Add bay leaf and cinnamon stick.
3.       Add chopped ginger, chopped garlic and sliced onions. Saute the onions and allow them to become light brown in colour. Add chopped tomatoes and cook with a little water (if needed) until they turn mushy.
4.       Keep the onion tomato mixture aside and grind it in a mixer after it cools down. Please remove the bay leaf and cinnamon stick before grinding.
5.       In the same pan, add some more oil and when the oil is hot, add cumin seeds and green chillies (optional). When the cumin seeds crackle, add chopped mushrooms.
6.       Add a little salt and allow it to cook on medium flame. After about 8-10 minutes, when the mushrooms are almost done, add the baby corn and tomato puree.
7.       Add the spice powders namely coriander powder, coriander powder, red chilli powder and garam masala (optional) and cook for about 2 – 3 minutes on low flame.
8.       Check the salt again. In a small tawa, heat the Kasurimethi for about a minute to bring out its flavour. Add it to the dish and finish off with thick coconut milk. Switch off the stove after adding the coconut milk.
9.       Serve hot with Rotis.
You can use a cream on top. I did not use it as it does not suit our diet (I blog only dairy free recipes).

That`s a wonderful recipe. Personally, I love Mushrooms and posted different recipes too. But, never tried this combination and Iam sure this tastes very delicious with hot rotis or pulkas..Definitely, I`ll try this recipe dear
