drumstick tomato chutney

Hi folks! Long-time no see!

So yeah, my other non blogger life consumed all my time for the last month and I have been slowly limping into this life since last week. More of that later, or maybe never.

It is in those super busy days, that I appreciate simple recipes like this Moringa Chutney. It is easy and quick to make, it stores well in the fridge for a few weeks and it is so delicious and versatile. You can eat it as a side with roti/chapati, you can mix it with rice and make flavored rice, you can spread it on bread or you can dip chips in it.

And the best thing about it? It's also very healthy.

drumstick tomato chutney


Moringa, also commonly known as drumsticks in India is a plant native to Africa and Asia. The seed pods are called drumsticks and are popularly added to curry in South India. The leaves are the most nutritious part of the tree. Moringa leaves are rich in vitamins and protein. They are also used as a dietary supplement to enhance weight loss.

Since it is the season when the leaves are available aplenty in the market, it is just appropriate that I share this recipe with you guys.

To make the Moringa Chutney, wilt the moringa leaves by cooking them on low heat in a little bit of oil. Keep it aside to cool. In the meantime, cook onions, garlic, green chillies, and tomatoes until they are soft. I used green tomatoes because they were in season, you can use regular red tomatoes as well. I also used the non-spicy banana peppers or bhajji chilli instead of regular green chillies, but you can use what you have available to spice up the chutney. Once everything is cooked down and cooled, blend it with a little salt and water until you have a smooth paste. Make a quick tempering of mustard seeds and curry leaves and add the chutney to it and simmer for 3-4 minutes.

The chutney can be stored in a glass jar in the fridge for 2-3 weeks.

Moringa Chutney is vegan and gluten-free. It also suits a plant-based diet.

Punjabi Dum Aloo [Video]

Punjabi Dum Aloo is rich, creamy yet vegan curry in which baby potatoes are simmered in a delicately spiced tomato-based gravy.

Vegan glutenfree creamy north indian punjabi dum aloo baby potatoes masala gravy

Once in a while I indulge… in cooking and eating. Everyone deserves a reward for working hard all week. And a long weekend is the perfect time to indulge. Don’t you agree?

I never buy potatoes with any specific plan of using them. I just add them to any mix vegetable thing I’m cooking or when there are fussy eaters around. Coz which fussy eater does not like potatoes, right?

But when I saw these cute little baby potatoes in the supermarket, I wanted to buy them and make them shine. What better dish to cook with baby potatoes than Punjabi Dum Aloo.


Vegan glutenfree creamy north indian punjabi dum aloo baby potatoes masala gravy



Vegan glutenfree creamy north indian punjabi dum aloo baby potatoes masala gravy

There are different types of Dum Aloo all over India, there is a Kashmiri Dum Aloo, a UP Dum Aloo and a Bengali Dum Aloo as well apart from the Punjabi Dum Aloo. Each one has a different kind of gravy the baby potatoes are simmered in. 

I'm trying to find traditional recipes for the remaining Dum Aloo since I've never tried them. If you have one, contact ME! I would love to try out the other varieties and compare them.

Vegan glutenfree creamy north indian punjabi dum aloo baby potatoes masala gravy

I've tried to keep this indulgent Punjabi Dum Aloo as healthy as possible without losing out on the taste. Some of it's highlights:

  • It is VEGAN - Yesss! Vegan yet creamy is obtained by the addition of a silky smooth Cashew nut paste. Being a Goan, I love my Cashews in anything and everything, so why not in a Punjabi Dum Aloo. Bring it ON! A more traditional Punjabi Dum Aloo has added yogurt or thick cream. I skipped both and only increased the number of cashew nuts used. This gave me all the creamy texture without any dairy in it. Hurray!!
  • Potatoes are boiled, not fried - A lot of Punjabi Dum Aloo recipes call for deep frying of the potatoes. While everyone loves deep-fried potatoes, they are not so much in line with the whole eating healthy food movement. So I boiled them and then tossed them in a hot pan to get a slight char. Feel free to bake them as well. Give it your own twist. 
  • Quick-cooking - Dum Pukht is a form of cooking in which meat or vegetables are cooked over very low heat in sealed containers. This helps develop flavor. While this makes a major difference to meat (at least that's what I've heard), it barely does much for the potatoes in this case. Hence. I pressure cooked the potatoes and later simmered them for a while in the gravy. I can assure you, no flavor was lost in this process.

Masala Puri Chaat Recipe | Bangalore Street Style Masala Puri Recipe [Video]


Masala Puri is a popular street food in Bangalore that is made by topping crushed crispy puris with boiled peas, spicy coconut masala gravy, finely chopped vegetables and Sev. Vegan and delicious!

In a hurry? Jump to Video or Jump to Recipe

bangalore street food masala puri chat

What's the first thing that comes to your mind when you think of Street Food?

To me, it used to be Pani Puri, but since I moved to Bangalore, it has always been Masala Puri. The cozy spicy warmth of Masala Puri is perfect for these rainy evenings.

I was introduced to this by Raj. In fact, this doubled up as his dinner most days. He had a regular street vendor who made the best Masala Puri I've ever eaten. Unfortunately, the guy relocated and we never found out where. Since then I've been on the quest to find the perfect recipe to make it at home. And I arrived at this recipe. I first posted it 6 years ago, in July 2013, but the recipe was different back then. I have hence, updated the recipe and this is as close as I have gotten to the street version.

bangalore street food masala puri chat

What is Masala Puri? 

Masala Puri is a “chaat” or street food that originated in Karnataka. Masala Puri is spicy, warm, vegan snack that is a mix of various textures. It is made of crispy puris, green peas, a spicy gravy, sev and fresh vegetables.

The base of the Masala Puri is the crispy puris, the ones used to make Pani Puri. These puris are crushed to make a base, so you can use all the puris that did not fluff up or ones that have holes in them. If you don’t have access to puris, you can use any savory crispy base, like chips, papdi, crackers or even papads. Preferably, something plain and not flavoured. 

The crushed puris are topped with boiled green peas. Dried green peas are used and never fresh peas. The taste of the two varies significantly, hence use the dried ones only. The dried peas are rehydrated overnight and then cooked with a little salt until completely cooked. 

This is then topped with the masala gravy. This gravy is what flavours the masala puri. The gravy is made by blending roasted whole spices with coconut and a little of the cooked green peas. The blended paste is then salted and simmered to develop flavour. I have made different versions of the gravy, sometimes I add in the cinnamon and the cloves, and sometimes I leave it out. Which is why I have marked them optional in the recipe below. Masala Puri is always served warm to hot, so heat up the gravy before serving. 

This is then topped with a mix of finely chopped vegetables like onions, tomatoes, carrots and coriander leaves and Sev. Sev is a deep fried gram flour noodles. The end result is a warm spicy bowl of comfort.

Vegan Omelette Recipe | How to make omelet without eggs [Video]

Vegan Omelette or Vegetarian Omelet without eggs! This omelet is made using chickpea flour and plain all purpose flour.  Enjoy it guilt free!

In a hurry? Jump to Video or Jump to Recipe

eggless omelette made with chickpea flour

This Vegan Omelette HAS to be on your breakfast menu!!

Eggs have always been so tightly associated with breakfast, that if you don't eat any (like me), you are left with very few options. Well, until now!! Presenting the Omelet without eggs, that tastes just like it was made with eggs. You can hardly tell the difference.

This Omelet has become a go-to breakfast for us on those busy weekday mornings or on those really lazy Sunday mornings. Sometimes, dinner too.

I have to thank Gee for introducing me to this recipe. She saw this online and made it for me. We LOVED it!! We were surprised that this tasted so much like the real deal. I've tried the cheese omelet and trust me, that is so so close to the Cheese Omelet made with eggs that you could fool anyone.

eggless omelette made with chickpea flour


Wondering what makes this taste like the real egg omelette? Black Salt. Just one simple ingredient.

The funky smell of black salt has always been equated to that of eggs. The smell comes because of the high sulphur content in the salt. Much like those hot water springs, but much milder. Black salt is now easily available online and pretty much all over the world. If you do buy black salt, you can use it in so many more recipes or sprinkle it over fruits or that salad for a different taste.

Why you SHOULD make this Omelette:

  • If you turned vegan and miss eating eggs, then you should make this and be guilt free. You can eat the cake and have it too!
  • It is so easy to make, you should definitely add it to your breakfast recipes list. After all, we are always looking for one more of those to add to the kitty.
  • If you've never eaten eggs in your life, at least, now you will know what they taste like and what the hypes all about.
  • Got any more good reasons? Leave a comment.

Beetroot Paratha Recipe [Video]


Beetroot Paratha is a Indian pan fried whole wheat flatbread that is stuffed with beetroot and spices. Earthy sweet beats are mixed with hot and sour spices before stuffing in dough and pan frying.

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.

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.

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.
