Malai Kofta

One of the very authentic and popular recipes of India, being the favorite of all is Malai Kofta. It refers to deep-fried Potato Paneer dumplings in a creamy smooth Velvety Tomato gravy. This is one of the most popular vegetarian dishes across the world. One can always find it in a Menu card of any Indian Restaurant and is an exotic dish. We always craved for this side dish when dining out along with Rotis/Naans...how I wish I would go back and live those childhood days. Melt in mouth protein-rich Koftas dumped in a lip-smacking tomato gravy not only is tasty and comforting but a feast to your eyes too. It is not a very complicated process and you can achieve Restaurant style taste if you follow the instructions properly. All the spices that go inside this dish make it so flavourful and I bet your house will be filled with its aroma. Boiled Potatoes and Paneer are two important ingredients for the Kofta. This is an ultimate combination and a feast fo

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 g

Bendekayi Nuggikayi Huli(Sambar)-North Karnataka style

Huli is one of the most popular thick Sambars made specially in North Karnataka. This is basically a type of sambar made with cooked pigeon peas/Tur dal, any veggies like potato onion, carrot, shallots, drumstick, or green leafy veggies, along with Huli pudi and other spices and simmered well. It goes very well with plain rice, chapati as well. This is specially made in North Karnataka Brahmin household.and it is different from the one prepared in South Karnataka, the main difference being the Huli pudi ingredients which are different from the sambar powder and also grated/ground coconut paste is not extensively used in North Karnataka. So here I will be sharing with you a mouthwatering, finger-licking good Bendikayi/Okra Huli along with drumstick, shallots, and tomatoes. Once you will try this, you can't resist making it again and again. It is so simple yet satisfying!! This recipe requires Huli Pudi which gives it a distinct flavor. You can check the recip

Gujarati Kadhi

Gujarati Kadhi is one of the most delicious, sweet-sour yogurt kadhi made with chickpea flour and yogurt and tempered with spices. It is basically a yogurt-based gravy dish that goes well with Khichdi, basmati rice, or soft phulkas. This is one of my personal favorites, and the first time I had tasted it in a kathiyawadi restaurant. Since then I love making this whenever I get bored of making Sambar and Rasam. This Kadhi is an essential part of Gujarati cuisine. They like it to be thinner, use less began, unlike Punjabi kadhi which is thicker in consistency. One thing to be kept in mind is to never cook the kadhi on very high flame and also use room temperature yogurt...so the kadhi won't split or curdle. This simple recipe involves a lot of aromatic spices like cinnamon, cloves, cumin seeds, asafoetida which are all so good for digestion and light on the stomach. They also give a distinct and unique flavor to Kadhi and taste awesome without onion and garlic. With just
