I’ve been kind of obsessed with Mexican cuisine a lot these days! Bean burgers, pico de gallo, stuffed peppers, vegetarian chilli, nachos.. you name it and I’ve been cooking + eating all of them! You can expect a lot of Mexican food coming up on this blog soon! ūüôā

This veggie bean burger was one of my earliest attempts at making vegetarian Mexican food. It can be as healthy as you want it to be. If you have access to canned beans, this recipe will take you 30 minutes or less to make. But if you cook your beans, then I do suggest you plan¬†and cook the beans ahead of time. The patties mixture can also be made and frozen for up to 3 days.¬†If you’re not a fan of kidney beans, use whichever legume you like! This recipe really is forgiving and adaptable! ¬†¬† (more…)

Vegetable Manchurian

Chinese-inspired Vegetable Manchurian recipe with a detailed step by step pictorial

Vegetable Manchurian Recipe | Indo-Chinese Veg Manchurian

25 years ago, my mom kept a recipe journal. In it, she documented culinary experiments unfamiliar to her. Over the years, she got comfortable in the kitchen and developed her own style of cooking. The recipe journal lay forgotten, collecting dust in one of  the store rooms. Miraculously, she has never gotten rid of the journal. She took it with her every time we moved houses.

Fast forward to¬†January 2016. I discovered the journal¬†whilst cleaning my closet and immediately took to reading her recipes. (Side note: Oh, the cleaning session was forgotten). What excited me was that my mom’s¬†energy and enthusiasm about food burned¬†through every¬†page. It felt nice to know that my passion for good food comes from her. Sure, I take the passion to¬†a crazy new level in the family. But basically, what I’m tying to say is, my Ma is a great cook and I’d probably spend a lifetime trying to become as amazing as she is.

Anyway – this recipe journal has an ingenious¬†recipe for Vegetable Manchurian. The minute I saw it, I knew I had to give it a try. Incidentally, veg manchurian has also been one highly requested recipe on this blog. Here, I bring you a step by step pictorial of what I believe is a delicious homemade version of this popular recipe. ¬†¬† (more…)
