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…

Creamy Cauliflower & Tempeh

I just cannot recall where I found this recipe from and unfortunately I did not book mark it either. I have tried this recipe out twice now and have made slight modifications.

Mushroom Stuffed Potato Cakes

This recipe is from my friend Sushma, who had previously given the recipe for Shahi Paneer. I have not tried this dish before and if I were to make it, I think I will substitute something else for the mushrooms, as I am not a huge fan of it. Perhaps some mixed veggies would be…

Unniappam

Mum made these after eons and boy, were we drooling just knowing that she was going to make them for tea, as it was an all-time favourite of ours once upon a time! I guess it still is a favourite of ours, though now we are more health conscious over fried food etc., but still…

Honestly this is a super easy dish to make. I had extra piece of tofu in the fridge and just wanted to do something different instead of my usual tofu sambal and I thought why not make a curry out of it. If you like tofu, do give this a try. Follow me on Instagram…

Tomato Fry
