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…

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.

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…
