Carrot & Tomato Raita

Raita is like a side dish and usually made with raw vegetables like carrots, tomatoes, cucumber, onion, pineapple, pomegranate seeds and many many more. You can also use boondi (tiny puffy balls made from gram flour) and this is my all-time favourite. Just add the boondi seconds before serving, so as to maintain the crunch…

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…
