Monday blues came in early this week. I had a one day weekend. Just Sunday… Sigh! I technically had a Saturday, but that was spent attending an event at Office and all my usual Saturday stuff landed into my Sunday and I was left with no rest day.

Between my load of laundry and dusting the house, I have absolutely no idea where that Sunday just disappeared into thin air. Literally, I blinked and my weekend was over.

I’m a planner, at least I try to be most of the times. Not necessarily execute all that I planned but plan I do. My weekly meals are all well planned on Saturday. I buy all the groceries and vegetables over the weekend and chalk out a small menu on a post it and stick it onto my fridge. This way I don’t need to stress out on weekdays wondering what to cook next. I still fret around about what to cook, but that fretting is now limited to Saturdays. I also wash all my vegetables and fruits on the weekend and sometimes chop them and store them in the fridge to make my weeknights easier. With my erratic work schedule, I need all the prep I can do.

Guess what happens when the planner loses one day of prep time. She panics!!!

That’s when come out simple recipes that can be whipped up in a jiffy. And so I made this evergreen Mint Rice or Pudina Rice. I did not have to go out and buy anything. Well… at least not the hero of the dish – the Mint. I’ve spoken a lot about my little Mint patch many times before, so I won’t bore you with that once again. 

This Mint Rice requires no prep in advance at all. It also uses exactly 2 vessels – the blender or mixer and the pressure cooker. Just blend together the mint, coriander leaves, spices, ginger and garlic and cook it along with the rice and some optional vegetables in the pressure cooker. You can use your rice cooker or even a deep saucepan to make this Mint Rice.

I added potato, tomato and green peas. You can skip them or go ahead and add vegetables like green beans or broccoli. I assure you it will taste amazing. 

Mint Rice tastes great with mixed vegetable Raita or plain yoghurt.

Pani Puri | Golgappa | Puchka Recipe

Yum

The KING of Indian Street food - Pani Puri or Golgappa or Puchka. Crispy fried dough balls stuffed with a potato pea mash, sweet tamarind chutney and a chilled spicy coriander-mint water.

How to make pani puri recipe, how to make puchka recipe, how to make golgappa recipe, pani puri ka pani recipe at www.oneteaspoonoflife.com

What kind of a place would the world be if there was no street food? Boring???

I think Street Food talks a lot more than Restaurant food. Street food is like the soul of the place. You learn so much more about the culture and people just by looking at the street food being sold. While restaurant food is usually mellowed down and modified to suit the palate of the customers it serves, street food is bold and original. If you haven't eaten street food, you probably haven't tasted the city yet.

India wouldn't be India if it were not for its "Chaat". Chaat refers to a variety of savory sweet tangy food sold on the roadsides from either small stalls or little food carts. And according to me, the most popular Chaat has always been - Pani Puri, also known as Golgappa in the North and Puchka towards the East. Names may vary, but the love for this dish does not. You can find Pani Puri being sold in every nook and corner of any city in India. But each one has their own favorite stall that they are extremely loyal to. Our favorite, is the Bihari guy outside a supermarket in Jayanagar 4th Block. He makes the crispest puri there is. I have never made my own Puris, that is an experiment for some other day. Buying is a lot easier.

Puris are crispy hollow balls made of deep fried dough. These balls are gently tapped with fingers to make a hole on one side. Then comes the stuffing, the stuffing varies according to the region you are in. It can be a potato mash, potato-green pea mash, sprouts, black chana, chickpeas etc. A little bit of this stuffed is stuffed into the puri. Then comes the celebration - the Pani or water. The Pani awakens every teeny weeny taste bud in your mouth. It is sour, it is spicy, it is salty. Made of mint, coriander, tamarind, chillies and spices, it is a flavor bomb. One of the essential ingredients for making the perfect pani is Black Salt or Kala Namak. A funky smelling salt that has its origin in the Himalayas. The pani is stirred before dipping the puri in it to fill up the puri with this wonderful Pani. Now if you want, you can add jaggery or sugar to the Pani to make it slightly sweet, or you can make the Date Tamarind Chutney like it is traditionally done and spoon in a little of it along with the Pani to get a slightly sweet Pani Puri. Keeping the sweet chutney separate from the Pani allows you to adjust the sweetness according to each individual's taste.

Once the puri is filled with the pani, it has to be eaten immediately. Eating a Pani Puri can be tricky if you have never had it. You have to eat the puri in one go. It is like a filled water balloon, you try to cut it in half and all the water will be out and you will be left with a soggy puri. 

My love for Pani Puri comes from my Dad. He never missed a chance to eat a plate of pani puri, neither does Raj. When I am shopping for weekly groceries at the super market, he's outside sneaking a plate of pani puri. In this one matter, we are definitely made for each other. We are 2 bottomless holes when it comes to pani puris. We can just keep on going!!

Healthy Millet Salad

Yum
This Healthy Millet Salad is made from Foxtail Millet, kidney beans, sprouts and mix vegetables. It is very healthy, very tasty and very filling. 

foxtail millet navane sprouts carrot capsicum cucumber beans healthy proteins thinai tabouleh

You go to the supermarket and are immediately drawn to the shelf that holds these exotic ingredients that you've only heard of but never eaten. It looks nice in it's classy looking packaging. You start remembering that recipe you saw on TV or that food photo that featured in the Magazine, wondering which of them should you cook. You glance at the price, and that wonderful dream of cooking with something exotic just evaporates. Smile replaced by shock. Deja vu, anyone?

I replay this scene everytime I go to stores like FoodHall or Godrej Nature's Basket. And sometimes I do it knowing that it will be an anti-climax. By now I know I will never buy Quinoa because of it's insane cost. Quinoa is being touted as THE superfood. High in protein, not high in calories, it's kind of  a win-win for those who can access it easily.

Quinoa is not Indian. Although, recently, some farmers are toying with the idea of growing Quinoa, it is still not popular enough to replace any of our ancient grains and seeds.

I use Millet instead. India has been the home of millet for centuries. Millets are just as rich as Quinoa. It is rich in fibre and magnesium. It has a low glycemic index and is a rich source of protein. And it is very light on your pocket. In short, millet is affordable super food that are easily available anywhere.

There are various types of Millet:

  • Pearl Millet or Bajra
  • Foxtail Millet or Navane
  • Finger Millet or Ragi
  • Sorghum Millet or Jowar
There are so many more, but these are the famous ones.

navane millet thinai foxtail sama rice

Let's  get back to this super tasty and healthy Foxtail Millet Salad. I've had it two days in a row and I just cannot have enough of it !!! 

This is a super simple salad. The dressing is made with just Olive oil, lime juice, honey, salt and pepper. Everything you already have at home, so there is no excuse to skip making it. Use any oil you like if you have run out of Olive Oil.

Now, usually, I say that there are things that are optional in a recipe. But in this one, the beans are definitely not optional. They are one the major building blocks of this salad. I really don't believe this salad will taste as good if you skip them. Also really needed are the fresh ingredients - tomatoes, cucumbers and mint. Everything else in the salad can either be skipped or replaced. You can substitute the coriander with parsley. Skip the sprouts if you don't have any. I personally like the light sweetness of the carrots in the salad and would recommend keeping it in there.

This salad was pretty filling due to all the protein in it and the slowly digesting millet. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

Mint Peanut Chutney | Pudina Mungfali Chutney

Yum

Call it what you like - Mint and Peanut Chutney or Mint Pesto, there is no doubt you will fall in love with it.

mint peanut dip chutney pudina mungfali

I'm sure by now you are aware of my complete and total obsession with Mint. I simply cannot get over it. While the pot in the balcony keeps spilling over with fresh Mint, I will continue to use it in my kitchen. 

This Mint Peanut Chutney is a hand me down recipe. I got it from my sister Gee and she got it from her Mother-in-Law. I totally hated hand me downs when I was a kid. The books, the clothes, the toys. But I'm always open to hand me down recipes. It only means the recipe is tried, tested and loved. This one is all three and more. It is so simple and so versatile. I eat it as a chutney with Dosa, I use it as a dip for my chips, I use it as a spread on bread. 

mint peanut dip chutney pudina mungfali

I was very excited about this post. Most of all because of my cute little mason jars. Do you see how cute they are? I've always had my eyes open for them, but they are expensive and I never found the size I liked. Finally, last weekend I got the size I wanted at a price I wanted, ain't I lucky? I had to use them in photos and this mint chutney was the perfect recipe to showcase my little jars. 

Back to my Mint Peanut Chutney - because all the ingredients are cooked before grinding into a chutney, this chutney keeps well for almost 10 days in the fridge. But don't worry, it never lasts that long. It will be over in the blink of an eye.


Step by Step Instructions:



1) Wash the mint leaves thoroughly.
2) Heat oil in a pan and add the mint leaves to the pan along with slit green chillies.
3) Fry for 5 minutes.



4) Add chopped tomato, peanuts and salt into the pan and cook for another 3-5 minutes. Keep stirring occasionally.
7) Remove from heat and allow it to cool.
8) Grind with a little water. The chutney should not be very smooth, it should be slightly coarse.

Mint Lime Cooler | Pudina Lime Juice

Yum

Pudina lemon juice limonana chia basil seeds sabze ka beej


The evening just became PERFECT. I'm sitting in my balcony and gazing at the stars. The moon is peeking from behind the clouds. There is that din of daily traffic that comforts me that I'm not alone. The radio is playing those melodious songs from old black and white movies. AND. I am sipping on my new summer drink - Mint Lime Cooler as I much on some spicy roasted nuts.

This first paragraph on twinkling stars, I wrote yesterday, but then it was late and all I wanted to do was crash into the bed and go to sleep. And something happened overnight. The weather changed. I mean it is weather and it is supposed to change. But I have rarely seen such a drastic change. It was summer yesterday, perfect for my Mint Lime Cooler and today, I'm sitting in the exact same place, but Brrrr...., I'd rather have a cup of steaming hot ginger tea than anything that is "COOL".

It rained in the evening and how the mercury dropped!!! My stars, have hidden behind those orange clouds that are lighting up the sky and the Moon, I'm not even sure if it has risen today.

I know that this cool weather may not last long. For all I know, it's gonna be bright and sunny and hot tomorrow and I'm gonna want to reach out to my Mint Lime Cooler.

Pudina lemon juice limonana chia basil seeds sabze ka beej


For all of you not as fortunate to have a cool weather wave going on, let me list down why this is the best and most economical drink to lift up your hot summer days:

Mint - It is a natural stimulant. Mint charges your batteries and gets your brain functioning. It helps lift your spirits when you are sluggish or anxious or depressed. And guess what? Mint also helps you lose fat.

Lemon - I'm not sure this blog post is enough to list down all the good things about the Lemon. It is rich in Vitamin C and sooo many other nutrients. It apparently helps prevent digestive ailments, diabetes and what not. In short, it is a wonder fruit.

Basil Seeds / Sabza - These seeds are very similar to chia seeds. They fluff up when soaked in any liquid. They form a major part of Falooda - another summer drink. They are known to reduce cholesterol and I've heard they help cool down the body.

Honey Sesame Baked Tofu Tacos with Corn and Raw Mango Salsa

Yum

mint yogurt sauce pudina raita vegan phulka wholewheat roti tortilla chapati

These Honey Sesame Baked Tofu Tacos are set to BRIGHTEN up your Weeknights. Crispy sweet salty baked Tofu... Salsa made with sweet juicy corn and tart raw mango and a cooling mint, coriander and yogurt sauce...

I remember a time when I absolutely hated Tofu. I wondered how anyone loved it. And then I discovered deep fried Tofu and I was converted. Can you imagine that sinfully CRISPY Tofu? Crisp on the outside, soft on the inside. And I just melted away with a bite of that Tofu.

And then I found BAKED Tofu. It is just as tasty, but it is BAKED... So much taste for so less oil.


Is it true that eating colorful food makes you all cheerful? These colorful tacos did that to me. The honey-soy marinade gives the otherwise pale Tofu this interesting DARK look. The corn salsa is the real color overload here - yellow, read, pink, green... it is like a rainbow. May be I should call it a rainbow salsa. 




The mint-coriander-yogurt sauce was my replacement for a regular guacamole. It is just a seasonal issue. Summer, you see, apparently, isn't the best time for the Avocado and they are all out of the market. I did manage to get a couple of good looking ones, but then, looks aren't everything. They just didn't taste as good. So I decided to skip the old Guac and add my own Minty sauce.


This is the biggest advantage of growing your own food. One fine day I took a sprig of mint and simple stuffed it in a pot in my balcony. That little act is totally paying off!!! Now I have not one, but THREE pots bursting with fresh mint. I love that fragrance of fresh mint. Every time I touch those mint plants, my hand smells like mint. Absolutely love it!!! So every time I'm undecided on what sauce to make or what chutney to make, I always turn to Mint. This mint, coriander and yogurt sauce is a cooling addition to the taco. You can totally replace this sauce with any sauce or dip you love - Guacamole, Sour cream, Mayo - whatever pleases you and fits in with your diet choices.
