Coriander Chutney

 
This week has been quite buzy with my regular routine that I am hardly finding time to blog. Just managed to catch up with all my pending blog visits today.

Green Chutney alias Coriander Chutney is one of my kitchen essentials. I prefer to prepare them and stack in my freezer. This could be used as Sandwitch Spread or as spicy chutney for Chats.
You can try the other chat essential Dates Chutney too.

Dal Makhani

Rewards…Awards 🙂 In high spirits, I am sharing my excitement of my recipe Dal Tiranga winning the Food for 7 Stages of Life – Pregnancy Event.
This is my first achievement after entering the blogosphere n am truely delighted.

As promised , I bring you one of the dishes from Diwali feast – Dal Makhani.
It is one of my Favourite Recipes I learnt a year ago . From Whr???? Vah re Vah!! The Chef , Sanjam Thumma makes it sound so simple that one is bound to try & will love the process. Most of our friends who have tasted this dish from my kitchen , has left licking fingers. Its for the authenticity in flavours !

Methi Namak Pare | Savory Pastry Diamonds

Fried Savory flour crispies also known as Namak Pare can be easily made at home. Make them ahead in time for Holi, Diwali or even T 20 cricket.

I have got Nostalgic memories linked with this Savory Bite.Lets go flash back about 12 years to Mumbai.We had a story about Kadu manga( Small mango in chilli gravy pickle) in our english  text books in Mumbai ( guess in my 8 th standard) . No one had ever heard or seen it ever in my school. I promised my friends to get it to school one day and let them taste wot it was. My friend Deepali just loved it , that she told me lets do a pact. You give me 1 bottle of Kadu Manga and I get you one Box of Methi Cuts ( Cant recollect the right name for it ).. Its also called Namak Pare..

Bean Burger

Diwali preparations in zing… We did want to grab something Hatke & jhatpat.
Thats when I remembered I have a few cooked kindney beans leftover from after using the majority of them for Dal Makhani….Had planned to make Rajma masala first – quicker version , then ditched this idea.. and came up with the idea of bean burger.
Looking at my experimenting in the kitchen ,My H has also become particular in opting for healthier version and oil-less version wherever possible. So I tried Shallow fry & Baked Version for making the Bean Pattice. Flavour n Taste no less than the burger from the Burger king.
