Palak Chicken

I made this dish on a whim and it turned out so well. Before I continue, let me tell you that I stopped eating all forms of meat about 2 years back, but I do make an occasional chicken dish for my husband. So, I bought chicken breast since I have not been cooking meat…

Egg Biryani

It’s been 2 years now since I’ve stopped eating mutton and chicken and when I crave for biryani, it’s usually fish. But this time I wanted something different; so I tried out egg biryani for a change. For me when it comes to biryani, it’s all in the gravy. The gravy has to be thick…

Potato & Baby Spinach

This is a very simple and quick dish to make and super delicious too! I used baby spinach for a change, just so that I would do away with the extra chopping of the usual spinach with the stems and all. With baby spinach, you just have to wash them and it’s ready to be…

Aloo Gobi

In Hindi, aloo means potato and gobi can either be cabbage or cauliflower. This is a typical North Indian dish and in my opinion, the key to any good North Indian dish is the generous amount of cumin seeds and tomatoes. Do not stinge on either of these and your dishes will be yummy! This…

Meatless Meat with Chickpeas

This meatless meat or vegan meat is the latest craze in town, but I really don’t understand why it has to be so expensive! Anyway, when I saw this in the local supermarket, I just had to try it. If you recall, I had tried the other latest craze called Impossible Beef and made kheema…

Indian Fish Curry with Tom Yam Twist

This fish curry is made using tom yam paste and coconut milk and has a nice, tangy punch. Once you try making this dish, you may not want to try any other variety again, as it’s so addictive. I’ve made this a few times now and this is the best version so far. I’ve tried…

Simple Egg Curry

This is a very simple egg curry that you can make in a jiffy and it goes well literally with anything! Am sure most people love eggs and if you don’t or can’t have them due to an allergy, by all means do substitute with tofu or paneer. I have tried so many variants of…

Methi Fish Curry

Here is another recipe using fresh methi (fenugreek) leaves. I love cooking with fresh methi leaves, as it has lots of health benefits including lowering cholesterol, high blood pressure and diabetes. My first attempt at cooking anything with fresh methi leaves was Aloo Methi, that I liked very much and recently I tried Methi Dal…

Spinach and Moong Dal Curry

This is one of my favourite curries and it’s so easy to make. It goes well with any stir-fry veggie and a piece of fried fish.I’m really not sure of the English name for this particular type of spinach that I use. It’s green and red in colour. You can even use your favourite type…

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,…
