Fried Tom Yam Bee Hoon

This fried tom yam bee hoon recipe is from my sister and it’s a ‘go to recipe’ for a quick and easy dish to prepare, especially when having unexpected guests over. It’s a dish we have all enjoyed tremendously, as it has the tangy taste of the tom yam paste and the bunga kantan, also…

Methi Dal

Methi is fenugreek and I used fresh fenugreek leaves for this recipe and yellow moong dal. I have tried with toor dal also, but prefer yellow moong in this particular dish. I am yet to try with chana dal. Methi is mainly used in Indian recipes and has many health benefits like lowering blood cholesterol,…

Sweet and Sour Karela (Bitter Gourd)

You must be wondering how this can even be possible 😂! But trust me…. the sweet and tangy taste will truly deter you away from the bitterness of the bitter gourd (karela) 😉. Honestly, this was an “accidental” dish. I started off trying to make something different with bitter gourd and ended up getting an…

Scrambled Tofu

This is a good alternative to egg for those who are vegan and it’s a super easy and quick dish to prepare. It’s pretty much like scrambled eggs but instead of eggs, we use tofu. Or you may also use paneer and you can find my paneer bhurji recipe here. You can easily mash the…

Cauliflower and Tempeh

The recipe that I came across was originally sesame beef and broccoli and since I do not eat both, I substituted cauliflower for broccoli and tempeh for beef…😂. As I love both cauliflower and tempeh, I felt that it would be a great substitute and I was not disappointed with the end result. Tempeh is…

Channa Dal Palak

This is yet another favourite curry of mine. I love all kinds of dal in almost all kinds of preparation and I love spinach. So this is a great combo which is very delicious and nutritious. This recipe is originally from Tarla Dalal. Her recipes are so easy to follow and you truly cannot go…

Korean Style Spicy Tofu

I’ve not tried Korean cuisine before and the only reason I tried this out was for the two words that stood out – spicy and tofu…. ha ha. But honestly, it is not as spicy as you would expect it to be. This recipe calls for a Korean chilli paste called Gochujang and it is…

Baked Beetroot Cutlets

Hubby passed me a beetroot cutlet recipe and as I love beetroot, I wanted to give it a try. If you recall I also have the Carrot Beetroot recipe posted some time ago from my friend Savi, which you can find here. Besides beetroot, I have added carrot and cauliflower and when I started with…

Rasam

I guess you could call rasam a kind of Indian soup. You can either have it with your rice or you can drink it on its own. And rasam has many benefits as it contains lots of vitamins and minerals and helps in digestion too. My rasam is so very different from the way most…

Kadala (black chickpea) Curry

Kadala or black chickpea is one of my favourites. I can have it in curry form or the stir fry version, that can be had as a snack also. Usually people have it with puttu, but I like it with plain white rice. Chickpea is a healthy food packed with lots of vitamins, minerals, fiber…
