Recipe Index - Portland

Recipes from our Portland Kitchen

I have spent close to two delightful months here in Portland with my son and daughter-in-law, and our trip is drawing to a close. We’ve had quite an eventful time, with several interesting trips and excursions in and around Portland. As usual, one of our major interests were with different kinds of foods and recipes! People from different parts of the world converging in the US over the years have not forgotten to bring along with them, their traditional culinary expertise. Consequently arrays of global cuisines are available here.

During our picnics and visits to various places of interest, we enjoyed multi-national cuisine from various restaurants and food courts from Oriental to Lebanese - Ethiopian to Western, and not to mention all time favourites from Mexican and Italian cuisines and so many more. Since vegetarianism and vegan foods are in high demand these days, there is no dearth of these dishes in any of the eateries.

I wish to share about all the travel and food experiences we enjoyed here in this new series. I will also be posting the recipes of the different dishes that we prepared at home.

Thank you Yosee for the lively mascot of this series as well.

Dear Vanaja,

I am glad that you found the recipes useful.South Indian Vegetarian dishes are normally agreeable to young children.
Children do not like their food hot ( khaaram).I usually add a scoop of cooked and mashed dal and a little ghee to the normal rasam rice.
I have a grand daughter who is two years old.She relishes rasam rice with dal but refuses to eat vegetables.My daughter makes a puree out of cooked mixed vegetables and adds it to the rasam rice, dosas and idlies as well.
I think this is the best way to give them some nutritious food till they start relishing the vegetables by themselves.
Best wishes to you and little Nakshatra.
