• Heart-Healthy Quick Noodles

    Ever heard of a dish that promises health and exhibits an exciting play of flavour and colour on our plates? We all know that in order to be healthy, we need to eat our colors, and in all forms - leaves, roots, stems and everything plants provide. There is this huge root with pulp that has a sweet taste and it is usually of a dark crimson red colour with purple tinges. (love love love!) Hated by most of us, but it is surely loved when converted into yummy dishes. Yes, Beetroot! The healthiest in the root-family and packed with essential nutrients, beetroots are a great source of fiber, folate…

  • Lauki Kofta Curry

    Bottle Gourd or Doodhi or Lauki is one of the highly underrated vegetables I guess. I really believe that all the haters of lauki that I know were not served the tastier versions of this very nutritious vegetable. Even in my home, I have seen only 2-3 versions including a sweet! You might have noticed that in hospitals they serve lauki generously; that is because it is high in water content (92%) and it helps lower bad cholesterol. It is a rich source of Vitamin C, Kand Calcium. It is also beneficial for diabetic patients.

  • Vegan Dalgona Coffee-Choco Cake

    What is better than having a dessert with two of your favorite 'serotonin boosters'? Right! I love coffee in every form - food, drink, mask or decor! Who doesn't like a good coffee shot after all! This lockdown, I mean the third lockdown is really boring, compared to the first one; or so I feel. The earlier had a lovely charm to it! So, taking one-day-at-a-time and trying to master myself in a lot of areas and not just culinary skills, I really am worked up since a couple of past weeks..!

  • Hummus made from okara / Hummus without chickpeas

    Back in 2015 when I went to UAE, I immediately fell in love with the Arabic and Lebanese food there and the side effects of that trip was an unending craving for a good hummus here in Mumbai, India. All my following trips to UAE also contributed in my ever-increasing love for the Arabic cuisine. It also happened that when I turned vegan almost 3 years ago, the only item I used to order at restaurants was a hummus platter or Chinese food as back then there were minimum or no options of vegan restaurants in Mumbai. In current date, veganism is extending and a lot of restaurants and cafes…

  • Soy-Spinach Pulav or Soya Palak Pulao

    I face this dilemma on daily basis about what to cook for dinner and I know a lot of people go through this! Especially when you don’t have any suggestions from your family but you know that they’re expecting some tasty restaurant style dish to be served. Also, one thing that is really bad is that I never think of anything ahead in time and I am never prepared with soaking grains or any similar stuff to make my cooking easy. So, yesterday I made this delicious pulav at home with 3 ingredients easily available with meĀ  – Soya chunks, Spinach and Basmati Rice. I am sure you’ll love it,…
