Indian food is full of flavours and no secret that it offers so much of variety that if you decide to eat a new dish every day, you won’t get chance to repeat same dish in years to come. Today am sharing this thing called Kachori (कचौरी), which is basically a flour based flat bread with stuffing in it and deep fried. The stuffing can be of numerous things, though its normally potatoes or lentils (dal). Speaking of lentils, normally moong is used, however in my recipe I have used Urad dal.
My lovely readers, you have seen all sorts of recipes on this blog and whilst I try to cook healthy, there are few recipes where it yields food which has high calorific content or not suitable for Vegans. Hence I thought I will share something which is more vegan friendly as well as ticks the boxes of those following Paleo diet too.
This is Date and Fig roll, which is a no-cook recipe too.
St. David’s day is round the corner and as a celebration to that, I am sharing this recipe of leek in collaboration with British Leeks. This recipe has been curated by them and has twist added by me.

Think of biryani and thoughts that crosses mind is of aromatic smell spices and an image of long grain rice in a plate. Normally biryani would also bring images of chicken or lamb biryani in mind. For vegetarians, it would mean the image of vegetable biryani.
Non-vegetarian food in India (or Indian Cuisine) is incomplete with out Biryani. Biryani can be from Awadh, Hyderabad, or Delhi, and based on its location, there would be somewhat variations. I have seen biryani served in normal Indian takeaways or restaurants in UK, and I won’t call it biryani, its just pieces of chicken/ lamb/ prawn tossed in rice and some curry added on top. To explore the true taste, you need to go to the roots and discover real meaning of biryani where rice is cooked in layers of meat, along with spices on a low heat by sealing the lid, that’s what I call “Dum Biryani”.
Rabdi (रबड़ी) or Rabri is a popular north Indian dessert made out of milk. It does not require a long list of ingredients to make Rabri, but it simply tastes divine and out of this world.

I have grown seeing my mum make rabdi at home numerous times, and this was one popular dessert at our home anytime a guest used to come for a meal.
