Yum

Popular Indian accompaniment made with yogurt, boondi (fried gram flour balls) and spices.

Indian accompaniment made with yogurt, boondi (fried gram flour balls) and spices

Namaste guys!! Happy friday, it is weekend, almost!! I hope you are planning for a relaxing weekend.

I've realised that my weekends are busier than my weekdays. I plan every Sunday night, that my next weekend will be relaxed and I won't take on more than I can do, but come weekend, and I'm either cleaning or cooking or gardening and by Sunday night, I need another weekend to recover from my weekend.

But this Sunday is relax-day for sure. It is my Birthday!!! and seriously who cooks or does laundry on their birthday. So I'm all ready to chill out and eat what others have cooked. I've made dinner plans with family for Saturday night and I plan to spend the d-day at home reflecting on my year's achievements. Not really!!! I just plan to not plan anything for Sunday, cause I'm tired of planning. So let's see how Sunday goes, I'll keep you updated on Instagram (may be).

Indian accompaniment made with yogurt, boondi (fried gram flour balls) and spices

Anyway, this Boondi Raita is as chill as I want to be. It is my favorite kind of raita. Raita is a popular Indian condiment or accompaniment to spicy rice dishes like Biryani. Raita is always made with yogurt and either cooked or raw vegetables, sometime, fruits like pineapple too (I love this one too). In this case it is made with Boondi. Boondi is fried gram flour balls. Boondi can be sweet or savory, in the raita, we always use the savory one. The boondi is soaked in warm water until it gets soft and added to whisked dahi or yogurt or curd and a mix of spices are added to mildly flavor the raita. You can find boondi in the snacks section of supermarket or you can buy "Raita Boondi" online.

Raita is best served slightly cool or at room temperature. It is cooling accompaniment to any spicy meal.

Achari Bhindi Dahiwali | Spicy Okra Curry with Yogurt [Video]

Yum

Pan fried okra cooked in a curry made with pickle spices and yogurt.

Pan fried okra cooked in a curry made with pickle spices and yogurt.

There are 2 kinds of people in the world, one who love Okra or Bhindi and one that wouldn't be caught dead eating it. I was a latter, I hated bhindi all through my childhood - I mean which kid really enjoys the slime? Until about 5 years ago, when I had run out of veggies to cook for the day, I picked up some fresh bhindi and decided I could try to convert the hate to at least a tolerable feeling. Frankly, all I needed to do that was learn how to cook the okra correctly. See my tips below.

I have the following tips to cook the okra, just right:

  • The first tip for cooking okra, if you don't like slime, is to never cover it while cooking. Cook the okra in an open pan, always.
  • Preferably use a flat pan and do not crowd it. A wok or a kadhai, ends up steaming a few pieces of okra at least, and when steamed, okra tends to get slimy.
  • Be liberal with the oil. If cooking on a stove, use sufficient oil. The oil helps make the okra crispy and stops it from steaming. If you want to use less oil, grill the okra in a pan in the oven. This recipe tastes equally delicious with grilled okra.
  • Cook okra on medium to high heat stirring regularly. Okra cooked in low heat, again, tends to get slimy.
  • Avoid adding water to the okra while cooking. Okra loves oil, let it cook in oil alone. Don't add any water or any ingredients that may leave their juices (like tomatoes) until the okra is almost cooked.
Once I had mastered the art of cooking okra, there was no turning back. I've made okra innumerable times since then, and loved it.

Pan fried okra cooked in a curry made with pickle spices and yogurt.

This Achari Bhindi Dahiwali translates simply into Pickled Okra in Yogurt. This curry uses the pickling spices used in North Indian pickles. While the okra is not pickled, it is cooked with a spice blend made inspired by the pickles. Pickle spices usually include - fennel seeds (saunf), carom seeds (ajwain), mustard seeds (rai), fenugreek seeds (methi dana), asafoetida (hing) and dried mango powder (amchur). I have reduced the quantity of fenugreek seeds as they are bitter in taste. 

To make this recipe vegan, use vegan yogurt like cashew yogurt or coconut yogurt.

To make Achari Bhindi Dahiwali, we first slice the okra lengthwise. You can chop it how you please, lengthwise just made it visually appealing to me. The okra is pan fried with oil. I've made it before by grilling the okra in the oven, the curry tastes the same and uses a lot less oil.

Then the gravy is made by cooking onions and tomatoes with the pickling spices and blending it. Whisked yogurt is added to the gravy to finish it off. Toss in the cooked okra and serve it hot with rotis.

Bread Pizza Cups [Video]

Yum
Pizza in a cup - cups made with bread, filled with your favorite pizza toppings and sauce, topped with cheese and baked until the bread is crisp and cheese is oozy.

cups made with bread, filled with pizza toppings,sauce and cheese and baked

Tell me, do you love Pizza? Did you just say yes??? Then you will LOVE this recipe.

So, since you asked for more snacks, I've been sharing recipes for snacks here. Just early this week, I shared the recipe for Masala Bread Toast - a popular bakery item in Bangalore. And today, I bring to you Pizza in a cup. Cute, right?

These Pizza cups are straight out easy to make and they are highly customizable. All you need are fresh bread slices, your favorite pizza sauce, toppings - again just use what you love or you have leftover in the fridge, and cheese. Yes, lots of cheese. I say the cheese is never enough. 

Okay, so there is a reason I mentioned fresh bread slices up there. The fresher the bread, the softer and easier to work with. The bread won't crumble when you try to shape them. I had a few slices that just crumbled on touch, so bad for the pizza cups. Use wholewheat bread to make it healthier.

cups made with bread, filled with pizza toppings,sauce and cheese and baked

Next, the Pizza Sauce. I made my own sauce following an older recipe of Eggplant Pizza, and I think this Basil Almond Pesto will also go famously. You can get creative and use this Manchurian Sauce instead or you can just buy the Pizza Sauce. If you don't want to go through all the fuss, just use Ketchup and add some Italian seasoning or Oregano to it.

The best part of any Pizza is the toppings. I kept mine super simple - chopped tomatoes, capsicum and sweet corn. It tasted delicious. But this is where you want to get creative and add what you love or as I suggested before, just use up leftovers. Also, a brilliant way to sneak in those healthy veggies your family won't eat.

I topped my Pizza Cups with Mozzarella cause I love the way the cheese melts and gets all stringy. Use any cheese you love, but remember, for cheese, less is never more!! Add more cheese, always!

So where all can you show these Pizza Cups off, let see:

  • High Tea - These Pizza cups will perfectly complement those cute little pastries you have for high tea
  • Kid's birthday parties - What's more fun is you can make the kid's add their own toppings. 
  • Cocktail Parties - let's just agree, these are perfect for any party, really!
  • Snack boxes?? I wouldn't highly recommend this, cause the bread may get soggy, but if you have non-fussy family, I say go ahead. I actually kept aside a few for 2-3 hours and ate them later and they still held and were just as tasty.

10 Delicious Vegetarian Snacks | 6 Vegan Finger Foods

Yum

A compilation of top ten delicious vegetarian snacks or six vegan finger foods.



Hey guys, how you doing?? So it's Friday and I'm all set to welcome in the weekend. How about you?

While the month on the calendar still says Summer, the weather does not feel like summer. It's been raining almost the entire month of May. And when it rains, I crave for delicious finger food with a hot cuppa tea. I love curling up with my hot snacks near the window and watch the rain. Do you love rain?

Here, in this post today, I have compiled a list of 10 of my favorite go to snacks when it rains. I hope you enjoy them.

1) Curried Brown Rice and Zucchini Fritters [Vegan]


Who said healthy has to be boring? We've taken healthy brown rice and zucchini and created a perfect snack. These fritters are flavored with spices and shallow fried in a pan. These fritters are also an awesome way to use leftover rice.

chawal tikki garam masala vegan pan fried snacks appetizer


2) Maggi Pakoda [Vegan]


Everyone knows that when it rains, it is the perfect time to eat Maggi. Maggi is an instant noodles from Nestle. The instant noodles are cooked and then dipped in a chickpea flour batter and deep fried until crunchy.  Use your favorite instant noodles to make these fritters / pakoda.

3. Instant Paneer Tikka


Chunks of Paneer or Cottage cheese marinated in instant marinade made of spices and chickpea flours and grilled. While Paneer Tikka is traditionally baked in a Tandoor oven, you can enjoy this delicacy at home with this instant version.

4. Cucumber Pakoda [Vegan]


Pakodas are the ultimate Indian snack when it rains. Generally made with a variety of vegetables like onions, potatoes, capsicum, we have made this deep fried snack a little healthier by using cucumbers. Sliced cucumbers are dipped in a spiced chickpea batter and deep fried to make crispy pakodas.

5. Baked Wholewheat Chips [Vegan]


My Indian version of nachos. These whole wheat chips are made by baking chapatis or whole wheat flat breads into crispy chips. Serve it with freshly made guacamole.



6. Sabudana Vada [Vegan]


Sabudana Vadas are shallow fried vadas or poppers made with Sabudana/Sago, peanuts and mashed potatoes. While these can be deep fried, I have pan fried them to reduce the oil consumed.

7. Chilli Basil Potato [Vegan]


Potato stir fried with fresh basil leaves and spicy red chilli flakes makes for a delicious snack. Unlike french fries, these are not deep fried but sauteed in oil until cooked.

8. Dahi Kebab


Dahi kebabs are yogurt kebabs. Thick yogurt is strained further, chickpea flour and spices are mixed in and then pan fried until golden brown. Crisp on the outside and cheesy on the inside, these will win you over for sure.

9. Broccoli and Zucchini Fritters

Indian street food, chaat, made with bread, yogurt, chutneys and spices


Happy Tuesday! I hope all of you had an awesome fun filled weekend. I sure did. In fact, I had a fun filled week!

If you follow me on Instagram, you would know, I was out vacationing the last week in Karkala at my in-law's place. I met a lot of relatives, ate a lot of good food and visited a lot of places. And my favorite among them was this beautiful little Jain temple at Varanga. Set amidst a lake and surrounded by greenery, it was mesmerizing. The temple is 850 years old!!! Check out the pics on Instagram.

There was also a TV serial shooting going on there, so we had some of our own fun directing it among ourselves, we created so many story lines in a short span on 10 minutes. Don't you just love making up your own movies? I definitely do. 

Indian street food, chaat, made with bread, yogurt, chutneys and spices


Now back to my recipe - Dahi Bread Chaat. I asked a few of my readers who I know personally what they would like me to publish, and a few of them wanted quick snacks, so here it is. This Dahi Bread Chaat is my take on Dahi Bhalla, only it is super instant. No soaking, no grinding, no frying. Healthy and ready in a jiffy. Could you ask for more?

Dahi Bread Chaat is made by layering a few goodies like papdis and boiled chickpeas along with plain toasted bread and soaking them in generous portions of dahi (yogurt), tamarind chutney and green chutney. A dash of spice and a sprinkle of fresh pomegranate seeds and you have a delicious healthy snack to squash that evening hunger. The recipes for baked papdi, yogurt, tamarind chutney and mint-coriander chutney are all available on the blog, however, you can also buy them in stores or online here- Date and Tamarind Chutney, Mint Chutney,

Dahi Bread Chaat is the perfect dish, if you are personally catering to a small group of friends or family or kitty parties. It requires minimal prep and can be assembled quickly, so you won't be spending all your time in the kitchen instead of mingling with your loved ones. This is also ideal as an after school snack for kids.

To make this dish vegan, use any vegan yogurt such as soy yogurt or cashew yogurt.

Eggless Blueberry Muffin Recipe [Video Recipe]

Yum

This is the ONLY recipe you will ever need for Eggless Blueberry Muffins! Moist, dense and basically just perfect, these Blueberry muffins will win over your loved ones.


Eggless Blueberry Muffins with streusel topping



Eggless Blueberry Muffins with streusel topping


These Blueberry Muffins got voted Number 1!!! Seriously!! By my biggest food critic, my sister.

I've got a perfect sister. Don't get me wrong, I'm not calling her perfect (after all only one of us can be perfect, and I'm the "one"), but that she plays her part of being the older sister perfectly. When we were younger, the 5 year age gap between us seemed so wide. I annoyed her incessantly -  I followed her around, I copied her all the time. I had to have the exact same dress she bought. I loved using her stuff. I basically just wanted to be her. Then we moved to a phase where I think neither could stand the other very long - we had millions of wars, some could pass off as world wars. And then overnight, we became the best of friends. Just like that. We knew what the other was thinking, we did not even have to finish our sentences. The age gap seems non existent now. 

Back to the perfect sister bit - she smothers me with love, she's always been protective but she's also annoyingly critical. So when she ate these Blueberry Muffins and she ranked number 1 on her list of favorite baked desserts, I was super excited. And I knew I had to share it with you guys. Wouldn't you want to try my number ONE Blueberry Muffins?

Eggless Blueberry Muffins with streusel topping


And it is the perfect season for these muffins. Spring is in the air, the freshest and plumpest of the berries are making their way to the markets.

This isn't really a new recipe. I actually made these muffins for the first time 5 years ago and then for some reason, never made it again. I've had it on the blog for the past 5 years with sad little photos that did not make justice to the deliciousness of these Blueberry Muffins. Back then I had used canned blueberries as I could not find fresh ones. But this time it was all fresh fruit in my muffins. I have to say, the fresh ones triumph over the canned ones any day. I got these wonderful berries for a steal at Namdhari's Fresh. They were on sale for almost half the price. So if you are based in Bangalore, check out your closest outlet and they may still be available at that price. 


Eggless Blueberry Muffins with streusel topping

These muffins are vegetarian and are baked without using egg or egg replacer, yet they were moist and perfectly dense, just as muffins are meant to be. I topped these muffins with a simple streusel made from butter, vanilla, white and brown sugar which is totally optional but definitely recommended. 

Also, in the video recipe, you will see a small difference in color in the wet ingredient mix, this is because I made these muffins twice, once with melted butter and once with oil. And I kinda messed up a part of my video when I made them with butter, so I had to re-shoot that part of the video when I remade the muffins with oil. You can use either butter or oil, but I highly recommend butter, as it adds more richness to the muffins.

Psst... Want to know what else made it to Gee's list? This Persian Love Cake and then the Almond brownies.
