Thakkali Sadam | Tomato Rice (No onion recipe)

Today we have the ubiquitous tomato rice for the alphabet ‘T’. I make tomato rice 3-4 times a month and I was honestly surprised that I had not posted this dish as yet. Maybe it was awaiting the mega marathon. As I mentioned previously, I am trying to perfect recipes without onion and garlic because…

Rose and Saffron Pilaf

As I mentioned before, I was looking for dishes based on ingredients available in my pantry and those I wanted to finish up. So when I reached the alphabet R, I thought of multiple things but nothing worked. Finally in a fit of despair I looked for rose rice and guess what there is an…

Persian Saffron Rice

For today, I have this aromatic and flavourful Persian Saffron Rice. It is an easy dish to make and a lovely replacement for jeera rice or peas pulao. All you need are saffron, some spices and onions. Sounds yum, right? Before moving on to the recipe, I have to share this. As we stepped into…

Methi Rice | Fenugreek Rice

Mushroom Egg Rice

My second recipe with vegetable sources of protein is this simple mushroom and egg rice. Mushroom is one of the veggies to be high on protein. But like I mentioned yesterday, most of my recipes for this week has an additional protein source to truly qualify as a ‘protein rich’ dish. This dish is one…

Dal Khichdi

Today’s recipe is another classic dish. Dal Khichdi has as many recipes as there are people eating it and I thought I should put my version on paper (or screen) and send it into the world to jostle for space among the other simple and complex khichdi recipes. This is the version that the family…

Aloo Gobhi

Some dishes are very fancy in method and name while others are simple and pure bliss. I never did quite imagine I would be in raptures about the very traditional, very classic and as old as earth dish, aloo gobhi. Plain old potatoes and cauliflower, if made right, can make you float in the air…
