Fruit and Nut Dalia (Broken Wheat Porridge)

31 Jan

Fruit and Nut Dalia

Add some fruity, nutty excitement to your porridge bowl. Dalia (broken wheat) is a favored breakfast food in many Indian homes โ€“ the grain is made by milling raw wheat grains, and is especially nutritious as it is unrefined. Dalia is a great source of vitamins, minerals, dietary fibre โ€“ all that at an affordable price.

Nutty, sweet flavors complement beans very well – I had taken to this idea when I first made string beans with peanuts and jaggery.

My story may not be as dramatic as that of families reuniting tearfully after watching Sansar, but it’s still worth telling for those in a culinary quandary similar to mine.

29 Jan

The very versatile spinach goes into this very green one-pot rice meal, making it a wholesome Sunday lunch option.

I normally keep coriander pesto handy in the fridge for a quick addition to salads or sandwich spread. Putting some pesto into spinach rice, along with the garnish of fried cashew nuts, worked wonders with the otherwise simple meal.

Peas and Cashew Fried Rice

28 Aug

A one-dish rich rice meal bulging with flavors -whole garam masala, the heat and crunch of peppercorns, peas and cashew nuts, fried onions and ghee. On a Sunday afternoon at home, what more could I ask for?
