Isn't that beetiful?

I just had to say that. I promise, no more bad jokes. Seriously.

Don't you just love that earthy sweetness of the beets? And pair it with the extremely vibrant pink color and then you wonder, who wouldn't love something like beets. Right? Wrong, my fussier half in the house won't eat beets. At least not in cooked form. And as he ages, he tends to become even more stubborn about not eating them. So, I have to come up with recipes that will convince him that beets aren't that bad. And with this recipe, I have him convinced, at least for now.

WHAT IS A PARATHA?

Paratha is a North Indian flatbread made mostly from whole wheat flour. It can be plain or stuffed with vegetables, eggs, meat or cheese. The dough can be made entirely of whole wheat flour or partly of whole wheat flour and partly of all purpose flour (maida). The dough is plain and simple, just made from flour, water and salt. It has no rising agents, no yeast and really requires very little rest time. It also stays well in the fridge for 4-5 days easily. The dough is rolled and then stuffed, sealed, and rolled out again. The paratha is then fried in a pan. On the streets, in North India, a paratha is fried in so much oil, it is almost deep fried, but at home, a lot less oil is used.

BEETROOT PARATHA

The most common paratha is definitely the Aloo Paratha stuffed with boiled potatoes. You are unlikely to find a beetroot paratha on the menu of any restaurant. But that doesn't mean the Beetroot Paratha is any inferior. 

To make the beetroot paratha, I peeled and grated the beets, and then mixed in hot spices like garam masala and red chilli powder and the sour dried mango powder, aka, amchur along with salt to make the stuffing. I lightly cooked the stuffing so that it doesn't ooze out of the paratha. I also added in a little bit of besan or chickpea flour to absorb any juice that does ooze out of the beets. This makes it easier to roll out the paratha when stuffed.

Summer is almost over and the love of my summers is going to go out from markets soon. Until then we are going to honour the king of fruits - Mango. For us, in the tropics, summer isn't all about the Sun, we see the Sun all year round. But summer brings with it the delicious juicy selection of seasonal fruits like the mango, jackfruit, guavas and melons. But it has always been the mango that rules my heart.

If you love Mangoes as much as I do, you may enjoy these other mango recipes:

Lalbagh in Bangalore has been hosting the annual Mango Mela or Mango Festival for years. Every year farmers from around Bangalore set up their stalls to sell naturally ripened mangoes and organic mangoes. In 2019, it started from 1st June and it is scheduled to be around for 3 weeks. So if you are in the city, do not miss it. They have a wide variety at very competitive prices. We went there on Saturday ago and bought several kilograms of Alphonso, and some of these tiny Sugar Baby or Sakre Gutti. 

I bought the Sugar Baby mangoes only to make this sweet and sour ripe mango curry. You heard it right, ripe mango not raw. The first time I made it I called up several people and collected 5 different recipes, before I decided to make this one given to me by my very close friend from Goa. The Goan version uses Turmeric and Asafoetida, which is optional in the Mangalore version.

There are 2 major variants of this curry - cooked and uncooked. The recipe listed here is the cooked one. The other one, where the coconut masala is not cooked, resembles this Tambuli recipe.

This Mango Curry is best served with rice, but can also be served with bread on the side.

Enjoy the mango season while it lasts!

P.S - This is a repost of a 2015 post. Video instructions are added and the post is altered slightly, but the recipe remains the same.

Sweet and Sour Mango Curry | Saasav | Pashingiri

Sweet and Sour Mango curry made with ripe mangoes and fresh coconut. This recipe is famous along the Konkan coast (Western coast of India) and is a popular curry in Summers.

Recipe Type:  Main Course
Cuisine:          South Indian/ Mangalorean/ Goan
Prep Time:     10 minutes
Cook time:     30 minutes
Yield:              3 Servings

Ingredients:


8 small Ripe Mangoes
1 cup Desiccated Coconut
1 tsp Mustard seeds
2-3 Dry red chillies
2-3 Tbsp Jaggery or Sugar
A marble sized ball Tamarind (Optional)
8-10 Curry leaves
1/2 tsp Turmeric powder / Haldi (Optional)
A pinch Asafoetida / Hing (Optional)
2 tsp Oil
Salt
Water

Method:


1. Wash and peel the mangoes and keep aside
2. Soak the tamarind in half a cup of water and keep aside
3. Dry roast 1/2 tsp of the mustard seeds in a pan on low heat for 1 min. Be careful not to burn it otherwise the curry will turn bitter. 
4. Heat 1 tsp of the oil in the pan, add the red chillies and fry for 30 sec or until the chillies are crisp.
5. Grind the coconut, roasted mustard seeds and red chillies into a coarse paste with a little water. 
6. Heat the remaining oil and add the remaining mustard seeds
7. Once they splutter, add the curry leaves and lower the heat
8. Add the coconut paste, turmeric and asafoetida and mix well. Add 0.5 cup of water and simmer for 6-8 minutes. Turmeric and Asafoetida are used in the Goan version of the curry, while it is optional in the Mangalore version.
9. Slightly mash the mangoes and add to the curry
10. Add water to achieve the desired consistency. Add more if eating with rice and less if with bread.
11. Add salt and jaggery. Do not add all the jaggery at once, taste and add. If the mangoes are very sweet, you may not need much. 
12. Squeeze the tamarind in the water and remove the pulp. Add this sour liquid to the curry. Again, like the jaggery, do not add all the liquid at once, taste and add. If the mangoes are very sour, you may not need it.
13. Cook on low heat for 5 mins.
14. Serve warm with rice or bread.

A quick weeknight fix. That's exactly what this Mavinkayi Chitranna or Raw Mango Rice is.

We've had a week of thunderstorms here in Bangalore and it's been scary. I scare easy, but thunder has never scared me, but I have been pretty jumpy the last weekend. The sound was akin to the sky ripping apart and a few of these extremely loud ones even managed to wake me up. Although we've been swamped with unseasonal rains, I still believe it is Summer, because mangoes, you know. While Bangalore really doesn't have a season for most things, that is, you can find pumpkins and beets all year round, but Mangoes, come only once a year in Summer. So when Summer gives you mangoes, you make sure you make use of it to the fullest. Ripe, raw and everything in between. If you like Mangoes, as much as me, you may also enjoy these other Mango recipes:

raw mango rice


I usually shop for the week on Saturday and then prep my veggies for the week ahead. Amidst the thunder and the crazy winds and the heavy downpour, I barely managed to get any meal prep done last weekend. So this Raw Mango Rice just pulled me through Monday. No prep really required, except may be cooking the rice.

Mavinkayi is the Kannada word for raw mangoes and Chitranna, well that's just colorful rice. In all other seasons, Chitranna is made using lemons or limes, but come Summer, tart raw mangoes are the preferred choice. Mavinkayi Chitranna is more of a South Indian fried rice in which leftover rice is tossed with a raw mangoes.

To make Mavinkayi Chitranna, use firm and tart raw mangoes. All green mangoes aren't raw, so pick carefully. Once you have the raw mangoes and some leftover rice, you are all sorted. To make the Raw Mango Rice, all we do is make a tempering of mustard seeds, a few lentils and then toss in grated raw mango along with turmeric and salt and allow the raw mango to cook down slightly. Then toss in the rice and add salt and mix well. Yes, it's as simple as that.

This tastes amazing with a side of Mango pickle, yes more mangoes, or a simple raita.

P.S. - This is a repost of a 2015 post. Only video is added and a few photos. Recipe remains the same.

Maharashtrian Tomato Saar Recipe [Video]


Nothing says Summer like red juicy ripe tomatoes. Use the tomatoes to make this simple vegan curry from India. The Tomato Saar is vegan and gluten free.

Vegan tomato curry from Maharashtra, Maharshtrian tomato saar

Red juicy tomatoes = Summer, right?

Summer is the best and worst time to be in India. Yeah. Let's go with the bad thing first, it is worst because of the heat. If it weren't for the summer rains in Bangalore, I would probably be swimming in a pool of my own sweat. Ugly visual, scratch that. But the best past about Summer, the best fruits and vegetables. 

If you want to have the sweetest fruits, the juiciest fruits, you have to come to India in Summer and then probably hide yourself in an AC room the entire day. 

Come April, I had a good list of recipes I wanted to cook for Summer and share with you guys. As predicted, I never stuck to that list. I really never do, I don't know why I bother. Instead of making what I had so patiently planned (I even set a Google Calendar reminder, I know, that's deep), I went on cooking with what I found in the market. I think it worked out better this way. At least I have been cooking seasonal to a large extent.

Vegan tomato curry from Maharashtra, Maharshtrian tomato saar

This Tomato Saar is just that, seasonal and delicious. But then you get tomatoes all year round, so what's your excuse to not make this? I assume you have nothing, so read ahead.

The history, I first encountered this Tomato Saar when I was in College. We were working to change the hostel mess menu when someone suggested this, and the cooks (lazy as they were) actually agreed to make this. They made it for the trial menu one weekday lunch and for some reason, while I really enjoyed it, it never did make the cut to the final menu. I tend to blame the cook's stubbornness to change, that led to it being out, because it was so delicious. A term I rarely used on anything that came out of the hostel kitchen.

Ever since, I've made this many times when I want a quick curry that does not require me to boil dal or make some elaborate masala. This Tomato Saar is simple, quick, vegan, healthy, gluten free and foremost, it is tasty. It is tangy and spicy and pairs perfectly with rice or with bread. 

To make the Tomato Saar, boil tomatoes, blend them with coconut, garlic and chillies, boil this puree again and season it. That's literally it! I'm really not giving you any excuses to chicken out, am I?

So wishing you a Happy Summer! May you cook with the best of the season's produce.

Vegan Jackfruit Burger Recipe [Video]

vegan jackfruit burger with jackfruit patty

I've had one of those weeks, where all I want to do is curl on my bed under my comfy blanket and call it a night and sleep off the whole weekend. A wish that I know I cannot fulfill, not this weekend. A busy weekend ahead :(

But I plan to have the next best thing going, a burger. A good burger to me is like that comfy blanket, it is comfort food when I am stressed out. What makes a good burger for you? For me, it is a delicious patty, preferably not too greasy, a bunch of veggies, a good bun (always!) and no ketchup. Yes, no ketchup. I am one of those ketchup haters of the world. I never understood ketchup, and I doubt I ever will. And this Jackfruit Burger is that and more!

I was super tempted to make a Jackfruit burger, because of 2 reasons - one, because it is Summer and Summer is definitely peak jackfruit season and you should always take full advantage of seasonal produce. And two, cause, ever since a cafe opened up near the house that sells Jackfruit Burger, I've wanted to have it! Those were reasons enough for me to attempt one last week, and may I say we were all very very impressed with this beauty. 

vegan jackfruit burger with jackfruit patty

The internet says the Jackfruit burger is very popular. Most of the recipes out there are for bbq pulled jackfruit style sandwiches, something I wasn't game for. So I made what I am comfortable with and what I love eating - a jackfruit patty. Making the patty is super easy and it only requires a few ingredients. The patty is made with shredded boiled jackfruit, boiled potatoes and spices. I totally Indianized the burger with Garam Masala, because that is what we Indians do. We add our spicy touch to any cuisine and make it our own. Then I formed the patties and shallow fried it. Can I say (without bragging), that it was yum.

YUM.

The burger buns were homemade, and for the first time ever they ended up with that pretty brown color and they were soft, like burger buns are meant to be. I followed N'Oven's recipe to make the burger buns, I just eliminated the milk powder and it worked fine. I like Mayo in my burgers, so I used some vegan mayo. Use any sauce of your choice - mustard, sriracha, guac or even ketchup. Only after that, I may never speak to you again. Just kidding!

Have a burger filled weekend.

Aam Panna Recipe | Kairi Panna Recipe [Video]


Aam Panna or Kairi Panna is a drink made from boiled raw mangoes and jaggery. Aam Panna is popularly made in summer across India.

In a hurry? Jump to Video or Jump to Recipe

raw mango drink

Aam Panna, a beverage from my school days. My best friend's mom made the best Aam Panna ever and she never forgot to share a bottle of the concentrate with me. It was she who introduced me to this tangy sweet spicy beverage made of raw mangoes that is so popular during summers.

As I write this I realize it isn't really the right time to post this. By right time, I mean right now, this instant. Because it has just rained heavily and it is so cool that all I feel the need for is a hot cup of tea. But then I had this post all ready to go with the recipe jotted down, photos edited and the video uploaded. So I decided to go ahead and post it. And anyway it may not have rained in your city and it may be the absolute perfect time for you to try this golden treat.

Aam Panna is made in several ways, as I have learnt over the years. Earlier in my blogging days, I had posted one recipe that does not require boiling of the mangoes. That recipe involves grating the raw mango and soaking it in water, allowing the flavor of the mangoes to infuse into the water. That takes a little more time and the results are markedly different. I would not rate one above the other as each has its own taste. I've also seen recipes where the raw mango is roasted on coals or a gas stove until it is charred instead of boiling the mangoes. While I have not tried this recipe, it does sound very interesting. The one I am sharing today is the most common recipe out there.

raw mango drink

To make the Aam Panna, select firm raw mangoes. The mangoes are supposed to be unripe and sour. The mangoes are boiled, either with skin or without and then the pulp is mashed in a blender along with a sugar and spices like cumin and pepper. Some folks add cardamom too, but I feel it overpowers the fragrance of the mango, so I skip it. I also replaced the sugar with powdered organic jaggery and hence the bright orange color of my Aam Panna. If you use sugar, you tend to get a more golden color. You can also add mint while blending the panna. However, I don't recommend it if you plan to store the panna for long as the mint tends to get bitter after a few days. The blended puree is a concentrate and can be stored in the fridge for the whole of Summer. When you feel like having Panna, dilute it with water until the taste feels just right and serve. You can also add muddled mint leaves or mint puree while serving. The Aam Panna can also be diluted with Soda water or sparkling water for some added zing.

A homemade panna never has a bright green color. If you want that color, you can add food coloring, but I don't recommend it.
