Paneer Jalfrezi – Paneer Recipes

November 19, 2018 Paneer Dishes  No comments

Paneer Jalfrezi is a simple and delicious sabzi variety to go with roti, naan or paratha. It is a semi-dry dish, more like a stir fry with full of flavours. Though Paneer Butter Masala is my all time favourite, this has become a recent favourite too, may be because of the simplicity in making it. No grinding or any long procedure involved. All u need are a few ingredients and this can be made in 15-20 mins. This can wrapped in roti/chapathi and served as a perfect lunch for kids/adults. Recipe with video..

Kunukku Recipe – Adai Mavu Kunukku

October 1, 2018 Snacks / Starters  No comments

Kunukku is a simple deep fried snack made with rice and lentils. This is made from left over adai batter. If u have some left over adai batter this can be made in no time. So next time when u grind adai batter, plan to keep a small amount of it separately for this humble evening or after school snack. U might have to add a little bit of water to make adai, so it is better to keep aside some of the batter if u want to make this snack. I have used this Adai Batter as the base. Kunukku can also be made with urad dal batter. Shall post that recipe soon 🙂

Aglio E Olio – Italian Pasta Aglio E Olio

August 16, 2018 Pasta / Pizza Recipes  No comments

Aglio E Olio is a traditional Italian recipe made with either spaghetti or pasta. I recently tasted this in a Italian restaurant. It was an open kitchen kind of restaurant and the chef made the food right in front of us. So I was curious to know the recipe when we ordered this. Trust me this is such a simple recipe with full of flavours from garlic and olive oil. We just loved it for its flavours. Compared to my Cheesy Pasta recipe, this is a guilt-free recipe as not much cheese is added here. The chef just drizzled some parmesan cheese on top, but I have skipped that as well.

Kasi Halwa – White Pumpkin Halwa

July 19, 2018 Diwali SweetsHalwa RecipesSweets/Desserts  One comment

Kasi Halwa is a very popular South Indian Halwa served in weddings. It is nothing but Halwa made out of grated white pumpkin (also known as ash gourd). The only job is to grate white pumpkin. It can be made very quickly and easily. Does not require a lot of ghee unlike this Atta Halwa. Love the glossy texture of this Halwa. I have had no plans of making this halwa at home as we hardly get White Pumpkin here. So when I happened to see it during my shopping, was so excited that I almost bought half of a big sized pumpkin. Only after reaching home did I realise the weight & price. Its so damn costly here 🙁  But after making this halwa, was so happy and totally forgot everything 🙂
