I take immense pleasure in announcing that I have succesfully completed the 'Show Me Your HITS' event with all your support and participation.A big Bunch of thanks to all my fellow bloggers & non bloggers who actively took part in the event,'Show me Your HITS -Iron Rich Foods'.I would like to thank Sangeetha (sangee)@ Spicy Treats,for giving me this wonderful opportunity and also sharing the maximum recipes(7) from her wonderful space.I received a total of 121+2=123 entries out of which I had 2 non blogger entries from Ranjitha too.(posted below)

Coming back to the roundup,Though all recipes are rich sources of iron but the  interesting HITS are-
* Rainbow Paratha -One of the unique & colorful parathas with all natural colors of beets,spinach & carrots..What else do we need more nutritious & lovely way to sneak kidoos with veggies..:-)

Rainbow Paratha

Khajur Satori (Dates Paratha)- Another interesting paratha in a row,but I couldn't resist the healthy filling with dates.I know whats going on reading this..stuffed with dates,feel like grabbing one,Ryt?

Ragi Murungai Keerai Adai -Ragi being one of the richest source of calcium and iron;and murungai keerai(drumstick leaves)another healthy source of iron,both together Rekha has made this beautiful adai:-)

Quinoa Idli- Quinoa is another healthy source and imagine a guilt free steamed food with quinoa ,Quinoa Idlis..Loved the texture and perfectly matched with red bell pepper kulambu:-)

Mixed Nuts & seeds Chikki- Peanuts,sesame,cashew,almonds,flax seeds,sunflower seeds,pistachio makes this awesome brittle with jaggery.A perfect healthy source of Iron and a loved brittle/chikki by all:)

NAME: Ranjitha Vridhachalam
1.NAME OF THE RECIPE: Brussel Sprouts Lentil Crumble (Paruppu Usili )

               Brussel Sprouts                  - 125gms( Washed &Chopped  )
                Toor Dhal                             - 2 table spoon 
                Spitted Moong Dhal        - 1 table Spoon
                Coconut-Shredded         -2 tea spoon      
                Chilly Powder                    -2 tea spoon
                Salt                                         - To taste
To Season:
                Mustard Seeds
                Curry Leaves
·         Soak toor dhal and moong dhal for some 30mins
·         Grind the soaked contents with shredded coconut, chili powder and salt
·         Now mix the paste with Chopped sprouts and cook over idli pot for some 20mins
Or microwave by sprinkling little water with often mixing in between.
Or we can even stem cook over the vegetable tray of Rice Cooker
·         In a pan pour some oil and add mustard seeds and as they crackle add Curry leaves and a pinch of hing
·         Add the cooked mix to the seasoning and mix well
·         Let it stay for a min and the Iron Rich recipe is all done easy and simple.

N2.NAME OF THE RECIPE:  Lemon Macaroni & Pepper Macaroni
Lemon Macaroni

This is a very easy and quick to make recipe out of Iron Rich Pastas. We usually have seen Pastas made with all spices, ginger/garlic paste but this is a very light and yummy dinner delight to make.SERVES-2                               COOKING TIME -20MINS,TO  COOK MACARONI:
·         In a pan take 280gms of macaroni and add water in 1:1.50 ratio
·         Also add a tea spoon of salt and 2 tea spoon of oil. Adding oil avoids macaroni being sticky
·         Now let it boil for around 10-12 mins or until tender with stirring in between
·         Once done strain the water completely with a strainer and show it to the cold tap water so that we get it all shinny and not sticking to each other.
The filtered out macaroni stock when added with jaggery and salt or pepper and salt, as per our taste makes a very tasty and healthy drink.


                Green Chili          -3nos
                Lemon Juice       -2 tea spoon
                Mustard Seeds-1/2 tea spoon
                Urad Dhal            -1 tea spoon
                Channa Dhal       -1 tea spoon
                Turmeric Powder- ¼  tea spoon
                Hing                       - a pinch
                Salt                         -to taste
                Oil                           -to season
                Curry Leaves
·         Add  oil to the pan and once hot add mustard seeds
·         As they crackle add urad dhal, channa dhal, curry leaves and hing one by one
·         Once they reach golden brown add green chilies and fry for a min
·         Now add turmeric powder and salt
·         Simmer the heat completely  and add the lemon juice
·         Then add half of the cooked & strained Macaroni and mix nicely
·         Let it stand for a min in medium heat and our tasty Lemon macaroni is ready to serve

                PEPPER MACARONI


                Mustard Seeds- ½ tea spoon
Urad Dhal            -1 tea spoon
                Cumin Seeds      -1 tea spoon
                Salt                         -to taste
                Ghee                     -to season

·         Add  ghee to the pan and once hot add mustard seeds
·         As they crackle add cumin seeds and Urad dhal one by one
·         As they reach golden brown add half of the cooked & strained Macaroni and mix nicely
