Lasooni/Lehsuni (Garlic) Dal Tadka with Step-by-Step Pictures

Hello all! 😀 Lasooni Dal is one of my most frequently made recipes of all time. This goes really well with a plate of hot, plain basmati rice and of course, ghee on top! 😉 Its simplicity is what makes it taste so amazing; eat it with some pickle on the side and add some…

Corn Capsicum Masala

Hi Everyone! 🙂 I’m Sathya! You guys must know me as Nithya’s sister – I’m not new to this blog, and i’ve already written a post here (Veg Pizza). I’m taking over this blog for a while just so that we can fill in for each other when busy, so you as readers won’t see…

Gobi Mutter Masala – Gravy style (without tomato)

Cauliflower belongs to the cruciferous vegetables family. It has really significant detox, antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties which are of great value to your health. I hated Cauliflower when I was young. I was completely disgusted by the critters and worms that would pop out of the vegetable while cleaning it. I would refuse to touch…

Quick & Tasty Paneer Butter Masala

Paneer butter masala is a creamy, yummy, gravy-style dish. While I was growing up, this used to be standard order alongside a plate of Tandoori Roti or Butter Naan. It is best eaten at a restaurant was my opinion: D The reason most people prefer eating this dish at a restaurant, is because restaurant gravies…

Quick and Easy Methi Mutter Pulao with Paneer Capsicum Curry

Methi and Mutter are made for each other in the culinary world 😀 This pulao comes together in about 10 minutes flat if you have pre-cooked rice on hand.

Baby Potatoes and Green Peas Curry – Gravy style

Most of the curry gravies I make are tomato-based. That I love all things tomato is no secret. DH, on the other hand, does not really love it like I do. The only tomato dish he will happily eat is the tomato chutney. Anything else has ‘too much tomato’ for him. Humph. As if there…

Kadai Paneer (Cottage Cheese Curry with Bell Peppers)

It is surprising how quick this dish is to put together; yet the end result does not at all look like it has come together in a matter of minutes. Kadai Paneer is an aromatic, colorful and delicious curry. IMHO, although the main ingredient is cottage cheese, the hero of this dish is (surprisingly again)…

Jeera Rice & Dahi Bhindi Masala

Another hot steaming plate of comfort food during the rains! 🙂 Jeera rice is nothing but steamed Basmati white rice seasoned with Cumin. Dahi Bhindi Masala translated means Okra in spiced Yoghurt sauce. Jeera rice is a breeze to make, and the Dahi Bhindi Masala (although involves some effort) compliments the rice deliciously well.  Read on…

Creamy Mutter Paneer

I love Paneer in any form – as bhurji, in sweets, in parathas, gravies, samosas, bread rolls etc. I add it aleast once a week to the menu at home. This is one of the simplest yet tastiest among Paneer curries that I enjoy making and serving. So I thought, why not start off my…
