Bokchoy Salad with Toasted Sesame Dressing

One of the simple, nutritious, and the best bokchoy salads that you will love as much as I do.....Trust me.! This salad consists of blanched bokchoy along with creamy toasted sesame dressing and finished with a drizzle of coconut aminos.

Bokchoy is a Chinese cabbage which means "white vegetables".They have white stems and green leaves. Usually, they are stir-fried with some chopped garlic. But if you want something refreshing then this salad is for you.

Toasted Sesame dressing is perfect for this salad as it is creamy, sweet, and slightly tangy. Every bite is bursting with lovely flavors. I have used Coconut aminos in place of Soya Sauce as it is a healthier alternative. You can buy it here.

 This easy Asian side dish is comforting for every day and gorgeous looking for family gatherings. So let's get started with the ingredients.

Serves: 4 people
Total time:15 mins


For the Toasted Sesame Dressing:
White Sesame seeds 1 tbsp
Black sesame seeds 1/2 tsp
Crushed garlic 1 clove
Vegenaise 4 tbsp
Rice Vinegar 1.5 tbsp
Tahini 2 tsp

For the Salad:
Bokchoy 5-6
Toasted Sesame Dressing (prepared) 2-3 tbsp
Red paprika 


1. Let's make the toasted sesame dressing, In a dry skillet, toast the sesame seeds over low heat for 2-3 minutes. Keep stirring back and forth so they don't burn. Once roasted, keep them aside to cool.

2. Grind the seeds with a mortar pestle or a grinder until smooth.

3. In a bowl add all other ingredients mentioned under toasted sesame dressing ingredients and whisk until creamy smooth Adjust the seasoning as per your liking. Keep it aside. You can also keep this refrigerated for 1 week if desired after using for the salad.

4. Now let's make the salad. For that, you need to wash the bokchoy under running water, drain, pat dry and separate the stems.
5. Boil water in a large pot and blanch them for about 1 minute. Take them out with the help of a slotted spoon and rinse in cold water to stop them from cooking further.

6. Gently squeeze out the water from them and place them over a serving dish.

7. In a different bowl, combine the toasted sesame dressing and coconut aminos.

8. Pour the sauce over the bok choy one spoon at a time until your desired quantity. Garnish with some red paprika. Serve it at room temperature or chilled.

I hope you will love this flavourful salad and relish it with family and friends. Do comment me the feedback, share and subscribe for more yummy recipes.

Eggless Brazilian Cheese Bread

Pao de Queijo (pronounced as pown -deh- kay-zho) aka Brazilian Cheese Bread is a small baked cheese bun, a popular snack and breakfast food that originated in the state Minas Gerais of Brazil. These are bread/buns usually made with tapioca flour, milk, oil, cheese, salt, and egg/egg substitute. Since I don't use eggs in my baking I have used vinegar instead. These are soft, chewy and so addictive. I love to make healthy bakes from all around the world. Inspired by this YouTube video by Something Dave and I gave it a try as it was an eggless version.These came out so well. These are super simple and easy to make with just five ingredients. A must try because they are gluten-free, contain no yeast, no baking powder, yet so soft and cheesy😋 I had never tried baking with tapioca flour...and found it so interesting to bake with. The dough is too sticky and you will need some extra flour to be dusted to make balls out of it. I have used plant-based pa

Huli pudi (Sambar Powder) North Karnataka style

Huli Pudi is one of the authentic traditional Sambar powders which has been passed on from generation to generation. This is specially made in North Karnataka. There is a wide variety of sambar powders not only within Karnataka but within South India. Each region has it's own way of adding ingredients and making them. In North Karnataka brahmin families, you can usually see two types of Sambars, firstly 'Saaru ' which can also be called Rasam with Toor dal. The consistency is thin and usually made with Tur dal and tomatoes or Tamarind. The other one is 'Huli' which is thicker in consistency and usually includes some veggies or greens. So here I am sharing the Sambar powder that is used to make a typical Huli. This is so unique and different from South Karnataka Sambar powders. The main difference being the omission of urad dal and Tur dal. This powder is just made with dried spices. This can be made in advance in large quantities/batches and stored in a
