Fruit and Nut Dalia

Add some fruity, nutty excitement to your porridge bowl.

Methi Gobhi

Fenugreek leaves are in season. Homemade meals sparkle green with a fenugreek dish on the menu every day: methi parathas with imli chutney for Sunday brunch, methi chhole with jeera rice for the Monday lunchbox.

Banana Peanut Smoothie

21 Aug

Peanut butter in smoothies is all the rage and I have been thinking that some of us might not want to invest in a full jar of peanut butter just for the occasional smoothie. At least in India, peanut butter isn’t a regular in most households – it is expensive and not available in smaller grocery stores.

Is there an alternative? You are in luck – I have a happy solution for you.

Green Beans with Roasted Nuts and Cranberries

Nutty, sweet flavors complement beans very well – I had taken to this idea when I first made string beans with peanuts and jaggery. This time I had green beans (French beans) on hand, which meant a milder flavor and more crunch. This felt like a good opportunity to up the experimental quotient on "nutty, sweet flavors".
