Sometimes, it is nice to give up the crazy addiction for fast food and cook something light, refreshing and healthy! Keeping up with the promise I made to myself in the beginning of 2015 (to make healthy lifestyle changes), I’ve been consciously opting for ingredients that are healthy. Take Green Lentils (or Green Sprouts, if you may) for example. Packed with proteins and rendering a great texture when cooked, they are wonderful for making patties.

I’m not going to lead you to believe that a healthy lentil and oat burger will be infinitely tastier than your average burger. Health food can only do so much. However, the nuttier flavor kinda grows on you, leaving you satiated for a long time after.

If you’re looking to make a healthy vegetarian (vegan, even) choice, then do give these green lentil and oats burgers a try.. (more…)

A good paneer recipe can make my heart skip a beat. Among most Indian-food lovers – especially the vegetarian ones – Paneer is revered because it is the one ingredients that can made into whatever their heart desires… Kind of like an avocado. 😉

I experiment with Paneer quite often. This is my absolute favorite recipe for a Paneer Tikka Masala. It is classic, simple, zingy, flavorful and oh-so-spicy! This is the kind of recipe that Indian food dreams are made of! Admittedly, this recipe does involve a few steps that may not be an impatient guy’s cuppa tea. However, the recipe steps are quite easy and absolutely doable by any home-cook!

Indian restaurants make big bucks selling paneer tikka masala to Indian food enthusiasts. While a good curry in the restaurant is definitely worth the buck, you’d be better off if and when you make it at home – knowing fully well what goes into the gravy and well in control of the spices, salt and oil. And of course, a homemade dish is always going to leave you feeling satisfied. So without further ado, here’s how I like to make Paneer Tikka Masala.  (more…)

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…)

First things first. I know you’re thinking “why do these rolls look funny?”

Let me answer that for ya. A little someone that she was being economical. She thought she was cooking for herself so she decided to make a small batch. But she didn’t have the right pan for placing these rolls in. And what do you know? They decided to rise horizontally rather than vertically! Who is this great person, you ask? Why, you’re looking at her!

Now that we’ve got the initial awkwardness out of the way, can we get back to business? These rolls are no joke people…! Never have I dared to experiment with yeast . Besides my tried and tested pizza dough, I’ve rarely tried my hand and creating / trying recipes that contain anything but refined flour. But of course, we all try to make healthy choices along the way, don’t we? And Oats – being the wonder cereal that it is – makes for a great binder. These oatmeal dinner rolls contain part refined flour, part oatmeal and the usual – yeast, salt etc. They are low on fat (no butter) and can easily be converted to a vegan recipe by substituting the milk / cream wash with something else.

And best of all? these dinner rolls work for any meal of the day. And they retain their fluffy texture all day long!   (more…)
