Kothu Paratha Recipe | Vegetarian Koththu Roti or Parotta (Indo-Chinese) Recipe by Foodomania.com

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: Indians love their version of Chinese food. So much so that besides making many Chinese recipes our own, we’ve gone ahead and extrapolated the flavors to our local dishes too!

This vegetarian Chilli Kothu Paratha is one such dish that combines the best of Indian and Chinese cuisines. You’ll find this dish in most restaurants in Tamil Nadu. I’m not sure it is popular outside the state. But if it isn’t it should be. It tastes amazing!   (more…)

Roasted tomato sauce recipe has changed my life forever.

Seriously, no drama.

The flavor – so much better, more intense and more fresh! A long roast lets the flavors of fresh  tomatoes slowly concentrate into a chunky sauce. This sauce bursts with the flavors of the summer! It is simple, for there aren’t too many ingredients to complicate the flavors.  (more…)

Fresh cubes of paneer delicately spiced with garam masala and sandwiched between fresh veggies in a hot and soft roll!

I’ve made a Subway-inspired Sandwich before. The success of that recipe inspired me to recreate some of my favorite Subs with an Indian twist. This paneer tikka subway sandwich combines the fine art of sandwich making with classic North Indian flavors. Unlike a typical paneer tikka masala, this recipe for Paneer tikka doesn’t call for too many ingredients. With a tonne of protein packed into a little sandwich, this is also a great healthy option for snack or lunch or dinner time.   (more…)

Vegetarian Chinese Sizzler Recipe | Indo-Chinese Inspired Recipes | Written by Kavitha Ramaswamy of Foodomania.com

There is no one way to make Sizzlers. The name of the dish is inspired by how the food is presented to you – hot and sizzling. So you could serve pretty much anything on a hot, sizzling iron plate and call it your own Sizzler. You’ll need a special kind of serving dish known as the Sizzler plate. It comes with a wooden stand and a groove with an iron plate. You cook the food and add it to the hot burning iron plate. And to avoid burning yourself, you place the plate on the wooden stand. If you don’t find this plate or do not want to buy it, you could mimic its functions by placing the food on any iron plate and placing that plate on a wooden board.
