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…

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…

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. Hope you will enjoy it as well. Cauliflower and tempeh (fermented soybean) make an excellent combo and if you have not tried this…

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…

Brazilian Fish Stew

This is a Brazilian recipe based on fish or shrimps and it’s simple to make. I was curious when I saw the recipe, as I’ve never had Brazilian cuisine before. But the picture on the internet was enough to make me drool! So I scrolled down the page to see the full recipe and just…

Varutharacha Mackerel Curry

Ayala (Mackerel) is a type of fish most commonly known here as Ikan Tenggiri. Varutharacha – Varutha means roasted and Aracha means ground. Basically, we would fry/saute or dry roast the shredded coconut (together with other ingredients like coriander seeds, dried chilli etc.) till it turns golden brown, depending on the recipe. In this recipe,…

Fish Tofu Soup

I am sure there are days when you just want something light for lunch or dinner and here is a quick and easy dish to prepare. Remember how I had mentioned in a previous post about the Shaoxing wine? Well, this dish has it too, so you can more or less get the authentic type…
