Happy new year all of you! Its 2020! I hope the year has kicked off positively for all of you. Thinking of January, reminded me of festivals in January and the foremost festival celebrated widely in India during January is “Makar Sankranti” or “Pongal” or “Lohri“, depending on where you are in india, you will be celebrating one of these. This reminded of the most common thing made in north Indian households during this festival, i.e. “Sesame Seeds Ladoo” or “Til Ladoo”.
Recently I have acquired taste for some Japanese food and have been exploring some authentic Japanese eating joints in and around London. My partner too have developed special liking for Teriyaki sauce, and he was looking around to see how it is made, so that he can try out few teriyaki dishes.
Being a mum what is anyone’s biggest challenge? Mine is feeding kids! Kids don’t want to eat this or that or sometimes they get bored of one thing or other. I keep thinking of ways to feed them by either giving friendly shape to food (call it food art), or feed them by playing games, or sometimes just creating some fusion.Continue reading “Vegan Fruity Chocolate Dosa | Crepes”
Its full on apple season in the UK, and with no surprises apples are blooming at peak in September across many households, thanks to good UK weather and that it is common to find apple tree in backyard of many British homes.
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.
Paneer Tikka (पनीर टिक्का) originates from India, and is made from chunks of Paneer (cottage cheese) marinated in spices and grilled in tandoor. It is one of the supreme delicacy for vegetarians, as an alternative to Chicken tikka. In absence of tandoor, you can also make it on tava, however tandoor offers the special smokey flavour. I made it using a Barbecue tandoor as well as tava. Below is my simple to follow step by step recipe, the key to success here is marination.
Preparation time : 10 minutes (Excluding time for leaving aside for marination)
Cooking time : 15-20 minutes (Excludes heating the tandoor)
Serving : 5-6
Rashogulla also called Rasgulla being a Bengali (Eastern part of India) sweet is very delicious and easy to make which requires only few basic ingredients from the kitchen cupboard. There has been a long debate if rasgulla originated from bengal or orissa, now its confirmed that its from orissa / odisha.
This melt in mouth, soft and spongy cheese ball originated from Orissa but is famous among all northern and eastern part of india. Below is my “step by step recipe of making rasgulla”
Been living in UK for a while now, and heard about Chokhi Dhani London from a friend in November last year. This led me to explore them and a little google showed that they are originally based in Jaipur, India. There can’t be a better timing for me to discover this, as I was going to be in Jaipur in Dec/ Jan. Here in this blog, I am trying to share my experience of Chokhi Dhani Jaipur and at the time of publishing this, I am yet to explore London’s Chokhi Dhani.
A very happy new year to all those who are reading this in Jan. I know its review of December box, but as some of you know I was travelling during December, I barely got any opportunity to try out products in December box of Degusta, I got my box delivered in second week of Jan and here is me sharing my thoughts on the contents of the box.
Its officially December now and I am yet to receive my December box (it normally comes around 20th of the month, so have few days for before I get it), in any case am here sharing what my thoughts are for the November box which I got in November.
Hola! If you are a regular follower of my blog you may have seen me sharing two apple based recipes, and I said I will be doing a trilogy of apple recipes.
