Lauki ki Kheer

“Lauki ki Kheer” (लौकी की खीर), also known as Bottle Gourd Pudding, Bottle Gourd Pasayam, Doodhi Kheer is a healthy, easy to digest and very refreshing dessert made with bottle gourd. This kheer is mainly made in my house during auspicious Navratri days, when we keep fast and can’t consume the regular rice kheer. It is surprisingly very easy and quick to make. Who says Navratri food needs to be boring? My platter is always full of such tasty food even during Navratri.

Whilst Lauki / Bottle Gourd Kofta curry is my favourite, but this dessert (Kheer) also leads in the things my guests love.

Aalo Ke Poori - Kachori | Your Food Fantasy

Aalo Ke Poori

When it comes to indian food, Poori aka Puri (puffed indian bread) is something that anyone can relate to and is as common as fish and chips in UK. If for once you can forget counting your calories, then this is one thing which is easy to make, absolutely fulfilling and heart contenting. I have earlier shared Bedmi Puri, and Spinach Puri, now sharing another simple variant of Puri. This Aalo Puri (आलू पूरी) is made with stuffing of Aalo (Potato) and hence the name Aalo Ke Poori. I must add that this is full of Carbs, hence surely not something to eat on daily basis, but a perfect dish (which goes on its own) for weekend brunch or those long train journeys in India. Keep reading for the step by step pictorial recipe of Aalo Ke Puri. As they say best memories are made with food, next time you have a guest for brunch try this recipe 🙂

Stuffed Mushrooms - Chickpea Filling | YourFoodFantasy.com by Meenu Gupta

Chickpea Stuffed Mushrooms

I am a huge fan of stuffed mushrooms. I don’t remember when did I first had this, but I find this as one of dish which acts great starter or even a meal. As the name itself suggests, the main ingredient here is edible mushrooms. These mushrooms are then stuffed with filling (something that you like, and works as good combination with mushrooms), and subsequently baked. These mushrooms are ideally best served hot, but if you fancy eating at room temperature or cold, enjoy the flavour. In this step by step Stuffed Mushroom recipe of mine, I have used Chickpea as filling and is perfect for vegetarians. This is my fusion of India meeting East. This recipe comes very handy when you want to try out something offbeat unlike Samosa, Aalo Tikki Chaat, or bread rolls.
