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…

“Kheema” – using Impossible Beef!

Keema is a popular dish in India, made with minced mutton or beef and can be prepared as a curry or semi dry. It goes well with bread, chappati, paratha or rice.For this preparation, I used Impossible Beef (which has no meat, but made from plants!) and added carrots and sweet potato as well. I…

Fried Tom Yum Bee Hoon

This fried tom yam bee hoon recipe is from my sister and it’s a ‘go to recipe’ for a quick and easy dish to prepare, especially when having unexpected guests over. It’s a dish we have all enjoyed tremendously, as it has the tangy taste of the tom yam paste and the bunga kantan, also…

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…

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…

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…
