Call it “Hakka Noodles” or “Chinese Noodles” with Indian twist, it means same for me. One of my all time favourite dish. If go to any buffet or any place where these noodles are in menu, I will never be able to say no, such a big fan 😀
About 2 years ago I posted recipe for bruschetta con funghi, one of pizza express delicacies. Inspired by same, I had tried bruschetta bread with toppings of mushroom and cheese, and I made this again one of those “ready in minutes” starter. This “cheesy mushroom bruschetta” is really simple to make and you can certainly earn brownie points from your guests, as it tastes simply superb! Thanks to the crunchy crust and cheesy topping, it tastes like mine pizza.
Chickpea chat or Chana chaat is a popular street food, especially in northern part of India. You can make this with white chickpeas or fresh green chickpeas, or black chickpeas. I am using these black chickpeas only for one reason that I like it 🙂
Soak chana overnight, and then you can get this protein rich snack ready in minutes. I still remember my childhood days when my mom used to give overnight soaked chickpeas to me and my brother in morning, thanks to its protein content.
Mixed Fruit Raita is one of the quick, easy and healthy option to eat anytime during any season. Mixed Fruit Raita is prepared by mixing yogurt with fresh fruits like apple, pineapple, pomegranate, pears, oranges etc.
How many times you have got papad / poppadam as condiment in a restaurant? A few times, I think the answer would be if you have visited an authentic Indian restaurant. But have you tried masala papad? Masala papad or poppadom is crispy papad fried in oil, topped with onion, tomatoes, coriander leaves, chillies and spices primarily.
When was the last time you visited any Indian restaurant? Did you get served red pickled onion as condiment before your food was served? Red pickled onion or Vinegar Onion or sirke wale pyaz (सिरके वाले प्याज ) is one thing that I ask as first thing in any Indian restaurant and generally I end up dishing that out with green chutney, and pickle, much before even starters are served.
