comfort food : five jewelled daal

When you talk about Indian food the first thing which comes to our mind is DAAL-RICE !!Its a staple in every indian household and there is something very homely and loving  about this meal.
I still remember our hostel days when the first thing I used to eat reaching home was daal rice...coz there is no comparison to home cooked daal rice.
Talking about pulses/daal there is a whole variety from chana ,moong,masur,arhar....But we usually eat arhar which is my hubby's fav.
Here I am sharing with you a five jewelled daal which is basically a mix of five pulses tempered with for all those days when you get bored of the usual daal you can try this one.
Hubby loved it and so this goes on our list of fav too !!



50 gm urad daal
50 gm chana daal
50 gm masoor(red lentils)
50 gm arhar/toor daal
100 gm green moong(chilka moong)
1 tsp turmeric
Salt to taste 

For tempering
3 tbsp ghee
A pinch of asafoetida
1 tsp cumin seeds
1 large onion sliced
3 cloves of garlic
A piece of ginger
2-3 green chillies
1 tsp chopped coriander

For garnish
1tsp of butter/ghee
A pinch of red chilli powder



Wash and soak the lentils in warm water for an hour.Cook the lentils with turmeric and salt until done.
In a pan heat  ghee and add asafoetida and cumin seeds.Once they begin to splutter add onions and fry till golden.Add garlic,ginger and green chillies and fry till the mixture turns golden brown.Toss the mixture in the daal and give it a good mix.Serve it in a bowl drizzled with chilli butter.

hubby's favourite "pancakes"

Well.... I have been away from blogging for quite a longtime ...was busy shifting home which was such a gigantic task in itself....from packing to unpacking ...the sadness of leaving your first home to the excitement of moving on to a new place....drains you completely !!!!

Well this has been lying in my drafts for quite some time... so before I begin experiments in my new kitchen lemme share with you this super simple and super delicious recipe of pancakes !!!

Hubby loves pancakes.......during our courtship period we went to Mocha once and had  pancakes there....then I came to know how much he loves that time I had no clue how to make infact I used to think its something very difficult and out of the world ....and then fate brought me to London exposing us to all kinds of pancakes and waffles !!!

Picture taken in 2011 at Mocha ,G.K Delhi

I am a fan of Nigella shows and love all her dessert recipes...her recipes are simply no fuss and yield great results.I tried her  pancake mix which is a great way to make instant pancakes.But here's one small modification I made in making the batter which is the magic ingredient called BUTTERMILK.I used buttermilk which yields such velvety melt in mouth pancakes !!!


4 cups all purpose flour
3 tbsp baking powder
2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
3 tbsp sugar

For batter

For every 1 cup of pancake mix

1 egg
1/4 tsp vanila extract
1 cup buttermilk 

For blueberry syrup

1/2 cup blueberries
2 tbsp sugar
1 tsp honey
1 tbsp water


Mix all the dry ingredients and store it an airtight container .Whenever you feel like having pancakes just take one cup of mix add 1 beaten egg,vanilla extract and buttermilk.If its too thick then add some milk.

Heat a  pan,add butter and spoon drops of 1 1/2 to 2 tablespoons of batter onto the pan and when bubbles appear on the surface of the pancake flip it over to make them golden brown on both sides. A minute or so a side should do it.

For the syrup combine all ingredients and let it simmer till it thickens.Serve with pancakes.Leftovers can also be used as jam on bread!!!!

Enjoy these velvety pancakes!!!!!!!

simple cooking : lemon rice

 “I have just three things to teach: simplicity, patience, compassion. These three are your greatest treasures.” — Lao Tzu

I read this somewhere and just loved it ...this is so true ... these  are the golden mantras of happy living !
And how surprisingly this applies to cooking as well !!!
  • Keep it simple !
  • Be patient (This is the biggest mantra of cooking I learnt from my Mom ...whenever I got upset on my cooking disasters mom always used to tell me not to be sad and that cooking is all about patience.!!!)
  • And compassion...if you are not compassionate about it you won't enjoy it !!!

Well am I sounding like a preacher ???
Well talking about simplicity lemme share with you a simple yet flavourful dish LEMON RICE !!!

 Lemon rice is one of my favourite varieties of rice ....I love its refreshing taste and vibrant colour and its so easy and quick to prepare with just a handful of ingredients !

Most of us would agree with this as in our daily lives some of the most unplanned events or trips turn out to be the best and the most memorable ones !!!!!!!
Similar is the case in kitchen, specially when you are dealing with leftovers...imagination runs wild and you end up cooking something really out of the world !!!
So this is what happened here !
I had some leftover cheddar after the pasta dish which I made for hubby's bday...And then I had been longing to bake a bread too....So tried these utterly yummy cheese and onion rolls.

These rolls will fill your home with a wonderful aroma of fresh bread that you will be dying to grab a piece straight out of the oven... ..!!
Very simple and very tasty !!!But yes full of cheese !!!But the whole experience of baking and eating is so gratifying that you can definitely workout a little extra for these ;) ;) !!!!

3/4 tbsp yeast 
1 tsp Salt
1 tbsp Sugar

Mix yeast in 1 tbsp  warm water and let it sit for five minutes until it froths.Take flour and mix salt, sugar,yeast mixture and warm water to form a smooth and sticky dough.Add oil and knead well for 4-5 minutes till it turns into a smooth  dough.Rest it for 2 hours.
Fry  the onions till light golden and keep aside.Now take the dough and knock down the air.Roll it into a thick round shape and then place the fried it with cheese and sprinkle garlic powder.Now roll it like wrap and slice into eight small rolls.Arrange them in a baking pan and wrap it with a cling film.Allow to proof it for 1 hour.

mango chocolate cake for hubby's bday !!

Just after we were back from Swiss holiday up next was hubby's bday and I have been wracking my brains thinking what cake to bake for him......
Had to be something special with hubby's favourite flavours after much deliberation I decided to try a combination of mango and chocolate ..and yes it was a hit  !!!

For the chocolate base I decided to keep it safe with my tried and tested recipe of chocolate cake  and a mango mousse to top it with...and to make it  more beautiful I made a heart shaped mango mirror using my cookie cutter.


For chocolate cake

My ultimate chocolate cake recipe

For mango mousse
1 cup Mango puree
1 cup Whipping cream
2 sheets Gelatin
3tbsp Sugar(or depending on your taste )
3 tbsp water for dissolving gelatin 

For mango mirror
1/4 cup Mango puree
1 sheet gelatin
1 tbsp sugar
 1 tbsp  Water
1 tbsp water for dissolving gelatin 


Allow the cake to cool completely and then slice it into two.
Whip the cream to stiff peaks along with sugar and then fold the puree in. Soak the gelatin sheets in cold water for five minutes.Squeeze and strain it and then mix and  melt it on a low flame in lukewarm water. Do not boil.You just need to dissolve  the gelatin  in the water completely.Allow it to cool a bit  and then  fold it into the mango mixture.Using a knife apply some mousse on a cake slice and place the second slice on it.Now gently cover the entire cake with the mousse and leave it in fridge for 7-8 hours .

After 8 hours the mousse will be set and then you can decorate it as you want.I used dairymilk chocolate fingers for the sides  and then made a heart shaped  mango mirror .

For mango mirror 
Take Mango puree and mix it with water.Add gelatin  treating it the same way you did earlier for mango mousse.I placed a  greased cutter in the center of the cake and poured this mixture on it(Make the sure the mixture has cooled down).Allow it to sit for one hour and then carefully take out the cookie cutter.

The cake is ready to surprise your loved ones !!!!
Enjoy !!!

Here is a one for my blog friends !!!

Coming back to food you know that I have been experimenting with tofu for sometime is another version of  tofu which can be served as an appetizer as well as a side dish .
This dish tastes very similar to Hakka chilli paneer. I lately had this in an Indian restaurant here in London called Roti Chai .If you are looking for authentic Indian street food you must go there..Will be sharing the reviews very soon !!!
But for now here' s the recipe for hot and spicy tofu fry !!!It does takes tofu to a new level and I bet you'll start relishing tofu from now it is not the same bland tofu anymore !!!


150 gm Tofu (cubed)
1/4 cup cubed bell pepper
1 large onion (cubed)
1 small carrot (chopped)
2 spring onions (chopped)
2 tsp ginger garlic and green chilli  paste 
1 tbsp soya sauce
1 tsp tomato paste  ketchup
1/3 tsp sugar
1 tbsp cornflour + 3tbsp water 
Salt to taste
Black pepper 

3 tbsp flour
2 tbsp corn flour / corn starch
1 tsp freshly ground pepper
1 tsp minced garlic
A pinch of salt


 Make a thick paste with the ingredients for marinade. Marinate  the tofu  pieces for about 10 minutes. 
Add  oil in a pan and shallow fry the tofu pieces, turning them over when the cooked sides are brown.
In the same pan, add chopped onions, green chillies, carrot and capsicum. Cook until the onions turn transparent for 2-3 mins.  Next, turn the flame to high and add soya sauce, green chilli  ginger garlic paste, sugar and tomato sauce. Stir-fry  until well blended and turn the flame to medium-low.  Add the fried tofu cubes and the cornflour-water paste. Taste and adjust salt. Stir and cook for another 3-4 mins until the sauce comes around and thickens due to the cornflour. 
Serve hot with noodles or rice  and say yes to healthy TOFU !!!!

  • Dust the dough with flour and roll it out thin, about 1/8 inch in thickness, into an oval shape.
  • Using a knife cut the rolled dough to make two equal portions.
  • Wet the edges and make a cone  and fill it with the stuffing. Seal it using a flour and water paste.
  • Deep fry the samosa till they turn golden all over. Please note that the oil should not be too hot and fry them on medium low heat.

chicken with roast potatoes and asparagus !!

There s a famous saying which goes "You eat with your eyes"
Plating and food presentation play a huge role in how we experience food. The presentation of your dish  takes it to a new level...So this Easter I tried to incorporate my learnings from the episode series of MasterChef Australia to our meal ... and cooked up this  traditional dinner of Roast,Potatoes and Veggies!!!

So here's how you can make this simple yet exquisite dinner for your loved ones !!!

Chicken Roast 

2 Chicken Breast Fillets
1/4 cup Yoghurt
1 Spring onion chopped
1/2 tsp ginger garlic paste
1/4 tsp cumin pwd
1/4 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp tandoori masala
1/4 tsp coriander pwd
Salt to taste

For the marinade blend all the above ingredients in a blender.Marinate the fillets for about 2 hours . Take out the fillets from the marinade and brush with oil .Now roast in the oven for about 40 minutes at 180C.

Roast Potatoes


2 Large potatoes
2 tbsp oil
Salt,pepper  and chilli flakes

Place the potatoes in a large saucepan and just cover with cold water. Bring to the boil then boil, uncovered, for 7-8 minutes.Meanwhile, switch the oven to 220C and place the oil  in a large roasting tin towards the top of the oven to heat thoroughly.Drain the potatoes thoroughly . Return them to the pan in batches and shake vigorously to soften the edges, or you can scratch them with a fork.Take the tin from the oven and add the potatoes. Turn them quickly in the oil then cook at the top of the oven for 50-60 minutes, turning once halfway through cooking until crisp and golden on the outside and soft in the centre. Drain and sprinkle with salt,pepper and chilli flakes. Serve immediately.


 4 Asparagus
 1/2 tsp Olive oil
Salt to taste
1/2 tsp Lemon juice

Trim the edges of asparagus and brush it with oil .Bake it in the oven for 15 minutes at 180C.Take it out and season it with salt and a drizzle of lemon juice.

For rice go to my previous post (The only change is turmeric instead of soya sauce ).

Plate up rice on the plate.Place the chicken fillet on top.Place roast potatoes and asparagus as sides.
Enjoy the pleasure of fine dining at your own home ...:)  :)
