Brinjal Curry Ennai Kathirikai Kulambu

Posted on

When I saw baby graffiti eggplant/aubergines in the shop, I bought them first, then thought of how to use them. I ended up with this recipe. It was quite tasty.


Papaya Fruit Dip

Posted on

I had some dressing (consisting of papaya, yoghurt, and lemon juice) left over from my salad, so I added maple syrup and used it as a fruit dip.

Sprouted Fenugreek Salad with Fruity Dressing

Posted on

This has to be one of the prettiest salads I’ve ever made. The dressing was initially a little bland, probably because the papaya wasn’t a very good one. I perked it up with a squeeze of lemon juice and that made all the difference.

It’s an unusual way of enjoying a mix of fruits and vegetables.

Chanterelle Pasta

Posted on

To make this, I pan-fried chanterelles in a bit of oil. Meanwhile I cooked the pasta in boiling water along with one toe of garlic, which I later disposed of. The mushrooms are so delicate in taste that any more direct garlic would have overwhelmed them. I added some frozen peas just before draining the pasta. The pasta, together with the peas, were added to the mushrooms, along with salt, pepper, and oat cream. I cooked it until the cream coated the pasta. I topped it with parsley.

This kidney bean and tomato curry is quite simple to make as it requires relatively few ingredients.

Cucumber Peanut Salad

Posted on

This salad contains spinach, cucumber, and roasted peanuts. I used agave syrup in place of honey to make the salad vegan. I found the peanuts were especially tasty due to being cooked with garlic.

Methiche Varan

The last time I cooked fenugreek leaves with lentils, I followed a south Indian recipe. This time I used a Maharashtrian recipe, substituting oil for the ghee. I used frozen fenugreek leaves because I have such a hard time finding them fresh.
