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.
Be it holy month of Ramzan or not, Kebabs are super hit any day. Talking of Kebabs, discussion can never end with out bringing Shami Kebab (शामी कबाब) into the mix. Shami Kebab is popular Pakistani and Indian style of kebab, it is different from other kebabs mainly because this one is not fried on a skewer. Shami kebab does not fall in the tandoori family. This one is made by mixing minced chicken along with spices and then frying it.
Liver fry or tawa kaleji fry is simple way to cook chicken, lamb or mutton liver using some simple spices on a flat pan. This process of cooking yields a dry dish which can be used as a side dish or can be consumed with naan bread. Not everyone loves livers. As they say either you love liver or don’t love it, just like marmite, you either love it or hate it.
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.
Pav Bhaji (पाव भाजी) is a spicy curry of mixed vegetables (bhaji) cooked in a special blend of spices and served with soft buttered pav (white rolls slightly toasted with butter). It is any Indian food lover’s dream to have it hot with a piece of buttery shallow fried bun and some chopped onions.
If you love sea food, chances are high that you will love prawns too. Prawns have a distinct taste and fabulous source of protein. Though I am a vegetarian, I love seeing my partner enjoy his food, and he loves his non-veg. This makes me give all sort of suggestion to my partner to try out various non-vegetarian recipes. It seems his Prawn capsicum recipe was hit between his friends and hence I suggested this time that he tries out prawn skewers. This recipe does not require oven, but if you wish you can use oven (check recipe notes at the bottom of this recipe).
