Yellow and Green Zucchini Curry

This is one of my favorite dishes! I love zucchini - grilled, cooked, baked, as a cream-soup etc... This dish is very light and easy to cook, great as a side dish or as a light main course.

This recipe comes from one of my favorite cook-book (and a lot others are yet to come!).  So I basically translate it for you into english.

For 4 Portions you need:

2 yellow zucchini
2 green zucchini
1 Tee spoon Coriander Seeds
2 Table spoons Ghee (or other oil)
2 Table spoons Ginger
1/2 tee spoon cumin 
1/2 tee spoon curcuma 
1/2 tee spoon garam masala
1 cup coconut milch 
salt, pepper, chives

What to do:

Fry Coriander Seed on a dry pan, then mill them. Let Ghee get warm on the pan, add ginger and cumin, fry it for about 2-3 minutes. Add zucchini and cook for another 5 minutes. Add garam masala, curcuma, coriander seeds, salt and pepper, coconut milch and cook all together for 10 minutes - till zucchini are ready. Serve with chives or other greens. 

Bon appetit! ;)

Easter - Russian Style

Easter is one of my favorite Fest! It is a very special day - this day it feels like a start of something new, like everything around us is awaking. This day is alway sunny! And the tradition of painting the eggs and baking special cakes (Paska & Kulich) make it so colorful and bright!

This year I baked my first Kulich and cooked my first fresh-cheese Paska. 
I am happy to bring russian traditions in our german home! 

Let me share just some pictures with you... (the recipes are too complicated, may be i upload them someday later).

Green Borsch (Sorrel Soup)

   Finally it's spring! And it's time for one of my favorite soups - Green Borsch! It's a traditional Russian and Ukrainian spring soup which is cooked without any beets but with a LOT of Sorrel (schavel in rus.)! Now you can find it everywhere, mostly on the farmer markets of cause. But in Metro Cash & Carry they have it as well. Well, let's start and let the spring taste great!
