Mint chutney usually known as Green chutney or hari chutney is one of the most flavorful Indian condiment which can be prepared in just few minutes. It is a blend of mint, coriander, yogurt, garlic, onion, lemon juice, chilies and salt. Mint chutney can be serve with kebabs, fritters, on a toast or as a dip.
This rather rustic looking ‘Spanish- style’ as I would like to call it, chorizo and chickpea stew is a favorite at our home. The rich, spicy stew really hits the spot on cold winter nights. I first tasted this stew when I was in Barcelona and got hooked to it since then. The stew is made with Spanish chorizo, Pata Negra (Spanish ham) and potatoes traditionally, but I love to bulk up with other veggies as well, while the base recipe—what I’ve shared with you here is always the same.
A wonderfully refreshing drink. I really like Chia Fresca, especially with the fresh mint leaves. It is super hydrating, perfect for hot summer days and for long endurance runs, rides and intense workouts.
Butter chicken or Murgh Makhani has been an instant hit through the years. Along with Chicken Tikka Masala this is one of the most well-known Indian dishes around the world. It originated in the 50’s at Moti Mahal restaurant in Delhi. Eating butter chicken in Moti Mahal is like reading Shakespeare’s Hamlet.
Super simple, elegant and refreshing beet salad with tons of flavor in every bite. Deliciously sweet this salad is rich in vitamin C and potassium and the leaves are high in calcium and iron. A combination of yellow, red and striped beets makes for a colorful salad. Topped with creamy goat cheese, toasted pecans, and sherry, mustard and honey vinaigrette will make this salad a hit at any summer party.
This is my mom’s recipe and my all-time favorite sabzi. This ordinary looking vegetable is cooked with very basic ingredients retaining its natural sweet taste and keeping it healthy at the same time. This is a lovely side dish to Indian meals. It can be served on its own with chapati or as a side to any daal (lentil soup).
Crispy, crackly on the outside and moist, succulent on the inside, these roasted chicken legs appear on the my dinner table more than any other chicken dish. Not only easy to prepare, it is budget friendly too. Chicken legs coated in a mixture of olive oil, ginger, garlic, lemon juice and seasonings, then roasted in the oven. Full of flavors this dish is hands-down!
Sometimes simplest of recipes are the best. Simple ingredients, simple execution…simply delightful. This Cream and Coriander Chicken fits the description here. And if you are a herb lover like me, this dish will become a standard in your repertoire.
This is one dish that can be found on every Indian restaurant menu. Grilled chunks of chicken wrapped in creamy tomato sauce. The perfection comes from the combination of yogurt, spices, tomatoes and cream. Chicken Tikka Masala is hugely popular in U.K also so much so that in 2001 it was declared as British national dish.
