Malai Kofta/ Fried Cottage Cheese Balls in a Creamy Gravy

And finally my 100th post. It has taken me a long time to reach here but the journey sure was thrilling.

There is an ongoing myth that vegetarian menus cannot be as extravagant and lavish as the non-vegetarian menus; and I do call it a myth. There are a myriad of options that can be dished out as exuberantly as its non-vegetarian counterparts.;and the first dish that comes to my mind is the Malai Kofta.

Heuvos Rancheros/ Mexican Rancher's Eggs

Heuvos Rancheros is a popular Mexican breakfast and simply means Rancher's Eggs. The dish consists of eggs fried in rancher's sauce served with tortilla, frijoles refritos, avocado or guacamole and sometimes Mexican-style rice and is usually served in farms in Mexico more as a brunch than a breakfast. So this was our weekend breakfast and a spicy, filling way to gobble up a heavy breakfast instead of the "boring" Big Breakfast! (Look who's talking!)
