Veg Hakka Noodles

There was a small little Indo-Chinese joint near my college which served the usual fare of Hakka noodles, fried rice and manchurian. The lovely part was that one plate of noodles or rice was just Rs. 25 and even better that it was sufficient to satiate two college kids. The best part of that was…

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…

Clear Onion Soup

I am not a huge fan of clear soups. Therefore the logical conclusion is that the husband is. He does not understand why soups need to be creamy, rich purees as against light soups with lots of flavour and I fail to comprehend why I need such clear soups when water will do the trick….

Mushroom Almond Soup

When I made the broccoli soup yesterday, I kinda blanched way too many almonds and I knew if I didn’t use them at the earliest, in will forget and it will be discovered years later by my grandchildren. So I figured I could do another almond based soup and promptly tick that box. That’s when…

Crustless Mushroom & Spinach Quiche

Like I said in my last post, I shouldn’t be trying out recipes from the experienced marathoners. I tried the crustless quiche and had quite a tough time making it a quiche and had to resort to ramekins to save the day. But the saving grace was that it tasted quite good and was worth…

Vegetarian Lasagna…well almost

   I discovered two things today – I am getting old “Add more cheese” does not solve all problems. Really! So I decided to make the vegetarian lasagna for the first time because I had made a new year resolution of trying new dishes and also using up stuff without wasting. I bought the lasagna…

Baked Mushroom Parmesan

    If you have read more than three posts in my blog, you will know I simply love Parmesan. It lends itself beautifully to grating unlike cheddar which has to be frozen or mozzarella which sticks to the grater and makes cleaning a mess. It’s not just the ease but it’s perfectly salty and creamy…

Cheesy Paneer Enchiladas

CHEESY PANEER ENCHILADAS My entry for today under Tortilla based dishes is Paneer Enchiladas. This recipe has everything I love – paneer, mushroom and cheese! So I was pretty excited making it. The good thing is that the husband hates paneer and so I usually get to have the lion’s share of all paneer-ness. Now…
