Pear Mint Ginger Juice

Pear Mint Ginger Juice

Pears complement greens beautifully in juices. Their sweet, aromatic flesh adds volume and rich flavor to juice, masking less-pleasant ingredients (thinking kale?) in the mix. Pears are a good source of vitamins C and K, along with essential minerals.

This pear mint ginger juice dresses the goodness of raw ginger and mint in a pear base. Ginger and mint have digestive/medicinal properties; combined with pears, this juice works wonderfully as a palate cleanser.

Aloo Mooli Kadhi: Potato Radish Sticks in Gram Flour Curry

This aloo mooli kadhi (potato radish sticks in gram flour curry) recipe, adapted from Sanjeev Kapoor’s, is a simpler alternative to pakora kadhi, besides being an interesting way of adding radish (mooli) to the diet. The Indian white radish has a taste so powerfully pungent that one can’t have much of it raw. I like mooli paratha, but other ways of cooking mooli don’t excite me. Aloo mooli kadhi, though, had me sold from the word go. The potatoes tone down the sharpness of mooli, and the yogurt and gram flour cloak it all in a rich, delicious sauce.
