Raddish and Potato Hooman - A Goan curry

 This is one of the authentic Goan curries which is usually made with seafood. This is prepared in every Goan kitchen paired with fish, prawn, or other sea food. 

But as a vegetarian, My mother in law who stayed in Goa for a long time came up with this idea of making this curry with just vegetables like radish, potato, and onion. All these vegetables are sauteed and mixed with a coconut-based gravy and spices. There is one spice called 'Tephla' which is used in making Goan Curries. It gives a great flavor to the curry. But since I do not get them in my place. I haven't added it.

As you all know Daikon Radish is an excellent source of nutrients including calcium, magnesium, potassium, and copper. It is highest in Vitamin C and folate. Potatoes, being a starchy vegetable are a good source of carbohydrates and also contain Vitamin C, potassium, and vitamin B6. Coconuts needless to say are a superfood. High in fiber, vitamins, minerals, and a source of good fats. Overall a very healthy dish especially for vegetarians. Also, all the spices give this dish a lovely aroma and helpful in digestion too.

This is a very simple recipe with amazing taste that you can cook within 30 minutes. Since my husband is from Goa, I learned this recipe from my Mother in law and make it when we get bored of usual curries.

So let's dive into the recipe

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
