Ever since I moved to UK, ability to get spices, vegetables or food that you get in India is somewhat limited. I must admit that there are numerous asian stores (more so in London) where getting such asian grocery is more accessible.
Its a long time that I have shared any recipe and I was wondering what shall I share this time around, I thought why not share something which I made recently.
I had some excess yogurt at home and I had bought Spinach to make Palak Paneer, but when I asked my partner if he fancies having palak paneer, he did not sound too excited about it. Immediately I thought I can make “Palak Kadhi / Spinach Kadhi” (पालक की कढ़ी). It was like killing three birds in a go. 1. I can use yogurt, 2. I can use my spinach and lastly it gives me a good meal too.
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. St David’s day is celebrated in Wales and the festivities includes eating leek based food. This “Vegan Leek and Pea Aranchini” is a great snack (or a meal), and if you a leek lover, you gotta love this.
For all of you who have been regular reader of my blog, I have got something common, healthy and yet tasty recipe this time. It is my latest obsession, and this is “Guacamole”, made out of Avocado, which is full of benefits.
Off late, I make this Guacamole so frequently that its always in my fridge. Reasons why I am obsessed? It is suitable for vegetarians like me, it is tasty and acts as dips or spread on my bread or wrap, or eat it with my munchies like nachos.
Keto diet is probably one of the most popular diet plan used by many these days. I heard about Ketogenic diet about 4 years, however it was only recently that one of my follower asked me to give her a Keto recipe. She wished for a keto recipe with indian twist. So, here I am with this “Keto Chicken Korma”.
Its been a couple of months I visited a local Thai restaurant, and had Pad Thai. Ever since then I had idea brewing in my mind to create something which is a good fusion of Indian and Thai cuisine. Both these cuisines have distinct flavour, hence I wanted to preserve the same and offer something scrumptious yet authentic. Hence I decided to play gently with flavours to maintain originality and offer newness.
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 sweet memories of this sweet, as its one of my favourite sweet. 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.
Rasmalai is a bengali dish made with spongy cottage cheese balls, and the word ‘Ras’ indicates the juice that oozes out of these cheese balls. Below is the detailed step by step recipe to make Rasmalai at home.
Whenever I make Rasgulla, I invariably make some Rasmalai too 🙂 You can not evade this delicacy once you have had it once, it is so much tempting.
