I often meet people who say there are not many vegetables they can eat, hence they have to eat non-veg food. I have grown up in a vegetarian family, and there are options umpteen. Today I am sharing recipe of a vegetable from gourd family. This is called Pointed Gourd, commonly referred as Parwal (परवल). You can make a few things itself with this simple veg, I will try to cover those in my future posts, today I am sharing curry of pointed gourd made with potato.
1997 miles! Yes thats what India measures from North to South, and “1822 miles” from east to west. With such massive country size dialects and culture changes every 50 miles and so does food and eating habits.
I never got chance to visit western part of India, and was less exposed to things it offers till moved to a cosmopolitan city. Guess what I got introduced to more flavours of India while I got to UK than I ever got in India, shocking! Isn’t it?
Kapil (my partner) is widely travelled in India and he has been to all four corners of India and he suggested me to try out thepla once from a local grocery shop in London.
For a lamb lover, two things are difficult to ignore, one is Lamb Biryani, and second is Lamb Chops. With no exception, Kapil (my partner) loves both, and then he decided to try out Lamb Chops curry, a spicy curry infused with traditional Indian spices along with Lamb Chops. This recipe is semi dry and can be used along with Indian flat bread or with rice, and no surprise that it tastes equally awesome.
For those who do not know about bhatura, it is one of the most popular punjabi dish and is a thick leveled fried indian bread. Bhatura is different from Puri in the way dough is prepared and generally bhatura is made from all purpose flour (maida) and not wheat flour. Puri and Bhatura taste widely different.
It is not possible everyday that you have elaborate time to do detailed cooking, especially if its a family of working couple, during weekdays it is sometimes barely possible to spend more than 30 mins in kitchen. What do you do then? Eat ready made meals? Eat left overs? Eat junk? Eat cereals? May be all of these! This “Asparagus Salmon Foil bake”, is an answer to these problems. It is quick to make, contains goodness of Asparagus and Salmon (packed with Protein!) and still super scrumptious.
Prawn Fried rice is a meal which can be made jiffy, not much of fuss and guess if you a prawn lover, you will love it. This recipe comes from my partner’s bag. He is the one who loves prawns and lately has passed on the taste to my little one. With two prawn lovers in house now, am out numbered, but still pleased that my family gets to eat what they love. This recipe is an Indian adaptation of Chinese prawn rice.
