Weekly Photo Challenge: Treat

Why to buy dried herbs when I can grow fresh herbs in my garden to enhance the taste of my platter. Nothing to beat the aroma of a freshly chopped mint or coriander. My small kitchen garden in my backyard provides me everything which is necessary to make food tasty, I spent time indulging myself in aromatic feasts.

How ? Look at the pictures and you will get an idea !

First on the list is corn on the cob which I am sure my blogger friends Marilyn & Garry gonna like it. It’s their favorite. They are milky and taste like heaven ! You can have it boiled, roasted or in any other form. I enjoy it with a pinch of salt rubbed on it with half sliced lemon.

When my garden gives me lemon, I SQUEEZE IT HARD TO MAKE LEMONADE !  Have you ever used curry leaves in south Indian dishes? Try it in upma, poha and sambar. In fact curry leaves can be used in any vegetable for that matter. The aroma will make you fall in love with south Indian food.

How about some mint, stevia and coriander ! O, yes ! I have fresh lemon grass to spice up my herbal tea and thai platter.

Wait a minute. If you think that I only grow herbs then you may be wrong. There are plenty of veggies too in my farm, like…..

What do you think? Wanna join me for an organic meal ? I bet you won’t regret !

  1. Your herb selections are a little different to ours, but I too have a garden full and use them in my dishes: sage, thyme, rosemary and marjory. I planted corn but the next morning there were holes in the ground where the mice had fed themselves. Eventually I had success, but it took a while. Your custard apples resemble our artichokes, which are a thistle vegetable.

    1. I would love to see the pictures of your herbs and especially artichokes some day. Corn is easy to grow here but saving it from squirrels is a BIG challenge.They love it ! I have thyme too but didn’t had the picture.


    1. That’s the bonus I believe. We have two major crop seasons that is ‘Rabi’and ‘Kharif’ and in between the third crop ‘zaid’ exists. There is a problem of pests though in this area. One has to be vigilant all the time.
