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…

Gluten Free Sandwich Bread

This gluten free sandwich bread is truly wonderful. This bread is really simple to make and the best part is that it does not require kneading! I guess everyone believes that bread requires a lot of kneading but not in this recipe. All you need is the stand mixer with the paddle attachment and it…

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…

Paleo Buttermilk Pancakes

As you may know, I just love pancakes…. of almost any kind. But as I am trying to avoid gluten, I am always on the look out for alternatives. The reviews I got from my first pancake recipe that I wrote about was that it had too many flour ingredients – from brown rice flour,…

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…

Gluten Free Banana Bread

I had not baked a banana cake in a long time and felt like baking one; that too a gluten free version. I’m really into gluten free baking these days and honestly, you will not be able to tell the difference, unless you’re told so! I also prefer to follow a recipe that has multiple…

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…
