Gavar-Cluster Beansis a popular vegetable in Maharashtra. They are available all year round here for a very modest price. The only hitch in buying these beans is the time taken to cut them- remove the ends and string them along, pulling the edged fibre. Pluck into small pieces (with hand) at the nodes of the pods. Tender Green Cluster bean pods spiced up with some Kala/ Goda Masala dish up a delectable curry that can be served with Roti or Rice. __________________________________________________________
Pindi Chole as the name suggests is a Chole (Kabuli Chana/Chick pea) recipe originating from the Rawalpindi region of Pakistan. This is again my friend’s recipe whose family hails from the Rawalpindi region of Pakistan. Simple Pindi Chole with a delicious blend of spices – my 2nd entry for Richa’s RCI-Punjabi Cuisine. __________________________________________________________
I have been resisting the temptation to make these Pakodas for a long time now. Monsoon brings with it cravings for hot,spicy,fried food. I am not a great fan of fried foods, but during the rainy season it is difficult for me too,to resist the temptation of these delicious minty Paneer Pudina Pakodas- PPP J (Cottage cheese-Mint fritters). This Friday for the Monsoon Magic seriesI have a recipe for spicy Paneer Pudina Pakoda. This is one of the recipes I would list under my ‘Culinary Accidents’. This accident sure was rewarding. See if you like it.
Incessant rains and frequent power cuts have kept me off blogging for the past week. Getting to work and back seemed like a big ordeal when rain Gods decided to visit us for 3-4 days continuously. The only positive aspect was the lovely rainy weather (which makes you creep under a blanket with a book in hand, music and some thing to nibble) encouraged me to try some spicy hot recipes. Today, for my Friday -Monsoon Magicseries I have a recipe for Kutchi Dabeli or Double Roti. As the name suggests this recipe finds its origin in the Kutch region…
I love sandwiches for breakfast -They are very quick to make, you can sandwich almost anything between two slices of bread (sometimes even leftover curries), and very easy to carry. Usually I have my breakfast on my way to work so I usually end up making sandwiches for breakfast. This is a spicy but healthy Sandwich.I make it quite often especially,when I am in a hurry with the available veggies. I am sending my Nutri-Sandwich all the way to Newfoundland & Labradorfor Trupti’s WBB#12 –Spice it Up. Nutri-Sandwich for Trupti’s WBB#12 -Spice it Up
