    Exotic Name, Exotic Dish Diwali week is ever so busy in general, but more so for me this year as my maid decided not to come to work and to top it up came down with a bad flu and fever. So I nearly sat out this theme. What am I talking about? Its the FoodieMonday/Bloghop day. The #115th theme – Awadhi Cuisine was decided by Kriti who blogs at Krispy Kadhai.    I was really in no mood or didn’t have the energy to really do any research on that cuisine. However, eat we all must whether sick or not and I had a huge slab of paneer staring at me whenever I opened the fridge. So, do you get those days when with…

    MEGA BLOGGING MARATHON -SEPT 2017 #80TH BLOGGING MARATHON THEME: PROTEIN RICH DISHES DAY:4    Anywhere you go, for dinner parties, weddings, engagements or any social gathering, people tend to fill their stomach with starters. When we were planning for my son and daughter’s weddings, we spent so much time discussing the starters and according to that it was then easy to choose the main dishes. For guests to appreciate the meal, the starters have to be the stars, then the rest just falls into place. Whenever I’m entertaining at home, and if we’re more than 10, I prefer to make starters that are easy to put together. This way I have more time to prepare the main dishes and desserts. If there’s a pot luck or bring a…

    Healthy One Pot Meal The #95 theme for #FoodieMonday #Bloghop group is One Pot Meal suggested by our group member Sujata. I nearly skipped this week as on Friday I had to close down my kitchen as we are travelling to India and then Canada. It’s going to be nearly 3 months that I’ll be away from home. Well, not that I am complaining. The first 14 days  its going to be time spent with my daughter and son in law and we’ll be busy enjoying a wedding.My daughter’s best friends are getting married. Then we fly off to Canada to spend time with her twin brother. Usually when we travel, I tend to close down my kitchen a day before and order take away.…

    Guest No.10          I was supposed to post this last week but the whole schedule got messed up. I had some posts that had to b live on certain dates (that’s what happens when you’re in too many groups!) and problems with the internet. It rained a lot last week and many places in Mombasa were flooded.           My 10th Guest on the blog, its my sister in law Heni. She’s married to my cousin Hiren. His mum was my 3rd guest. She had prepared Tangy Creamy Potato Curry. I’ve not had much opportunity to spend time with Heni, but whatever time we spend together at my dad’s home, their home or an outing, its fun. When I first met…

    Satvik Food According to the Ayurveda(Indian traditional medicine), food is divided into 3 main groups, Satvik (Satvic), Tamasic and Rajasic. Food not only nourishes the body but affects the mind too. In this fast paced world our food is not only loaded with chemicals through fertilizers, canning, processing but we tend to overindulge in fast foods that are bad for our body, mind and health.We all get tempted by cheesy pizzas, delish bakes, silky chocolates. Satvik foods are smooth, savory, easy to digest, light and fresh. Satvik foods encourage mental clarity, good health and peace.Foods belonging to this group are rich in Prana(life force). Foods included in this category are basically lacto vegetarian foods like fresh fruits, vegetables, fresh diary products, grains and pulses, natural…

  • 577. Vegetable Masala Buns

    Sometimes you need some spice             Its time to post our bake for the ‘We Knead to Bake’ group. For the month of July our host for the #41st bake was Ankita Dave of Anki’s Cakery. She requested us to bake Vegetable Masala Buns. Whatever international cuisine is made in an Indian kitchen has to spiced up. Bread also is spiced up to give it that typical ‘chatpata’ taste. Ankita suggested we could use pizza sauce. However, I thought of using a typical Indian option. What better ‘sauce’ to use then a chutney.Besides being a masala or spicy bread, what was unique about these buns is the way they were shaped. Loved the shape.          We Knead to…

    Ramadan Mubarak Mondays are appearing too fast. Barely blinked my eyes and Monday is at my doorstep. Imagine, nearly half of 2106 is getting over. For the 43rd #FoodieMonday #Bloghop, our theme was #Ramadan Special. What is Ramadan(Ramazan)? Ramadan is the ninth month of the Muslim calendar during which all devout Muslims fast from sunrise to sunset for the whole month. Observing fast during this month is considered one of the highest form of Islamic worship. Muslims believe that the holy text Quran was first revealed during the ninth month. Islam follow the lunar calendar, therefore fasting month each year varies. This time round its June -July. That means Muslims in some countries like Iceland, Germany, Norway, Sweden etc will be practically fasting for over…

  • 449. raw banana and paneer kofta curry

    November 3, 2014mayurisjikoni

    raw banana, sweet plantain, plantains My mum use to make raw banana or plantain bhajias or fritters for Ekadashi. No measurements, she would just mix grated banana with mashed potatoes and spices. Simple and yummy. However, I was yearning for some kofta curry. Ekadashi and kofta curry. Well that is possible. I made them with plantains and paneer. Kofta curry without onions and garlic you might question? Well its totally possible. I didn’t want to make rajgira puris as I find them too oily. Instead, I made some farari theplas and the meal was ready. Normal sweet bananas are eaten as a fruit and the green plantains, sweet plantains or raw bananas are different. They belong to the banana family but are used as a…
