Are you guys excited for the change in season? I was hardly in Seattle for summer this year, it’s only the last 1 month that I stayed at home. We didn’t do any grilling, no summer...

Bhindi Do Pyaza

Double the onions and lots of spices, surely make this Bhindi Do Pyaza very flavorful. This is one of my favorite ways to enjoy okra with roti or paratha.

We get a lot of veggies here in the US, however one veggie which I don’t see very often here is okra or what we call bhindi in hindi. Bhindi is a very popular vegetable back home and most people I know love it! Me and hubby are big bhindi fans and I try to make it at least once a month for our dinner. Bhindi sabzi with dal and roti – you...

Litti Chokha

Litti Chokha is a traditional dish that has its origin from the state of Bihar in India. Whole wheat dough balls are filled with sattu, a flour made from roasted bengal gram and eaten with chokha, a spicy poatato-tomato-eggplant mash.

Cauliflower Peas Pulao

Aromatic pulao/pilaf with spices, cauliflower and green peas. Making this pulao is a breeze if you already have some pre-cooked rice in your refrigerator. It’s full of flavors and vegan too.

I come from a country where rice is always on the table. The food in north India might be very different from the one in south, which again might be very different from the one in east but if there’s one thing that’s common – it’s rice. Throughout the country, you will find...

Rajasthani Dal Bati

Dal Bati -a traditional dish from the state of Rajasthan in India. Hard wheat balls are baked and then eaten a spicy mix of lentils. It’s topped with lots of ghee which makes it extremely flavorful.

India has a very rich culture, that is of course well known all over the world. However I think how rich and diverse our food is not really known. Indian food in the west is synonyms with curry and naan. And that actually is just a fraction of our food. Each state in India has it’s...

Zucchini Chana Dal

Zucchini cooked with chana dal, onion, tomatoes & fresh ginger makes a flavorful dish. This dal is great with roti or with rice. Healthy & vegan!

When I was little, mom would often make Chanal Dal (Split Garbanzo Beans) with Lauki (bottle gourd). Lentils (or dals as we call them) are a part of everyday Indian diet so we ate some or the other lentil every day. Chana dal was made not everyday since it’s little heavy on the stomach compared to other dals like toor/arhar or moong....
