Day 51: Katsu curry

I have to admit, it’s great to have an older sibling who can cook well! My sister was missing her college and her friends and was reminiscing about how they would make this curry at least once week. So I just thought it will be nice if somehow we could replicate the experience here underContinue reading “Day 51: Katsu curry”

Day 51: Beetroot and mango salad with black rice, spinach and walnuts

It’s mango season! Dad loves mangoes and so do my sister and I. What better way to use it than in a hearty and delicious salad? Black rice gives it a bit of nuttyness, roasted beets provides texture and colour and works well with the brightness of the mango. Adding spinach gives it an extraContinue reading “Day 51: Beetroot and mango salad with black rice, spinach and walnuts”

Day 49 : Aloo Gobi

I don’t know about you, but I am finding that the weekdays merge into the weekends. It all seems to be the same. I actually thought yesterday was a Sunday and hence went in for this big yummy meal of Sukka Chicken and Malabar paranthas! Today I want to keep it simple and have aContinue reading “Day 49 : Aloo Gobi”

Day 46: Shiraae

Very simple dish with few ingredients and barely any cooking! It’s a cool, refreshing Japanese salad which is very flavoursome and healthy. When my mother told me it was highly nutritious I was naturally against the idea because I thought of bland food, but this is light and beautifully flavoured. Ingredients 1. 200 g firmContinue reading “Day 46: Shiraae”

Day 42 : Chana dal with wadi and palak (lentils with sun-dried spiced dumplings and spinach)

We rarely make this at home but it is my Nani’s favourite and I thought this could be something for her this Mother’s Day. She loves the taste of wadi because it adds an amazing flavour and can even uplift the simplest of dishes (like ghia sabzi). Wadi is an intrinsically Punjabi ingredient which transportsContinue reading “Day 42 : Chana dal with wadi and palak (lentils with sun-dried spiced dumplings and spinach)”

Day 30: Kadhi

Kadhi – Simple or with Chicken I don’t think anyone makes Kadhi like my Nani – among her family and friends, she’s famous for it. At the langar she was known as the ‘kadhi wali bibi’ aka Kadhi Lady! No , kadhi is not kari(curry). It is a gravy dish but not a curry. TheContinue reading “Day 30: Kadhi”

Day 14: Dal Bukhara

Kali dal or Dal Bukhara We continue with the weekend indulgence with this special and yummy dal! Now my mom tells me there are many ways to make this depending on your level of patience. The perfect way is to cook it in a slow cooker for 10-12 hours. With the household chores to doContinue reading “Day 14: Dal Bukhara”
