    Some recipes are borrowed, some passed down and some – like the recipe for these no-knead garlic rolls – are invented by my over imaginative brain.

    There is a lot of thinking about food going on in my head all the time. I’ve been branded an obsessive foodie by many. And why should I be embarrassed about it? Yes – I may not seem normal to my next door neighbor; who cannot fathom why my eyes pop out when I smell beautiful onions caramelizing or when I see mint leaves growing right outside in the garden like there’s no tomorrow! The truth is – my brain goes into a recipe overdrive every time I see or get my hands on fresh ingredients.

    One day, I got myself some fresh, subtly pungent garlic cloves and plucked green chilies from my chili pot… and got to thinking about all the classic possibilities I could make with 2 most commonly used ingredients. I had made numerous variations of the garlic bread before. The one thing all of them involved was – KNEADING. While there isn’t anything wrong with getting some elbow grease, wouldn’t we all like to do away with the kneading a few times? After a few different attempts, I finally made some super soft rolls with a dough that barely involved any kneading!

    Mooli Paratha Recipe | Indian Radish Tortillas without Stuffing - Punjabi Mooli ke Parathe recipe by Foodomania.com

    I have to admit, radish isn’t one of my most loved vegetables.

    However, I do enjoy radish in a few forms, this paratha being one of them. Mooli is the Hindi name for Radish and this mooli paratha is just a radish flavored tortilla. Simple, spicy and delicious!

    Commonly served for breakfasts in the lands of Punjab, I’ve heard. But that hasn’t stopped any of us from enjoying these hot and soft flat-breads at varying times of the day. This recipe is the epitome of the saying – simplicity is profound. Radish, flour and some common spices found in an Indian’s pantry thrown together and voila! You’ve got yourselves the best recipe for mooli paratha! 🙂    (more…)

  • Sabudana Khichdi

    Sabudana Khichdi, from the western lands of Maharashtra, is a simple one pot meal dish commonly prepared for breakfasts or during religious festivals. Plump pearl tapioca cooked with ground peanuts and very mild spices can give you that subtle feeling of being infinitely satisfied with something so humble! 🙂

    I’m excited to share a dish I’ve long been enamored with – the Sabudana Khichdi.

    Is it THE most healthy dish you could ever make? Probably not. With clarified butter and potatoes and pearl tapioca, you can a good dose of starch and fat (something that healthy food these days seem to lack). However, it is a wholesome dish which would give you everything you need to keep up your energy all day  long.

    And did I mention how easy it is to put this together?

    Not to mention how simply deliciously chewy this Khichdi is?
