Amrakhand

amrakhand It’s raining mangoes in India and how I miss being in India now. Only good thing about Indian Summer is Mangoes, agree? If you know me well you know that I love fruits, mango especially. I’m a sucker for anything mango- raw mango, ripe mango, mango lassi, mango milkshake, mango sambar, mango pickle, you name it. Amrakhand is an ubiquitous Maharastrian/Gujrathi sweet made of hung(thick) yogurt and mangoes. It’s basically Shrikhand plus mangoes hence amrakhand.

Zucchini Spaghetti in Avocado-Pea-Radish greens Pesto

IMG_2733 I’ve been meaning to try spiralizing zucchini since long time, so glad that I finally made it to the zoodles bandwagon. a lil too late but oh well! We had a zucchini plant last summer which flooded us with jumbo zucchinis and I was running out of recipes. Since they were jumbo in size I couldn’t spiralize it then.

Moringa Leaves Stir-fry

  Growing up, I hated greens and vegetables. I vividly remember making faces at my mom whenever she force fed us. Little did I know the health benefits then, all I knew was spinach was Mr.Popeye’s favorite. Now, greens are a must for me not that I like it but I feel good when I eat it. I usually add it to my daily smoothies or else in curries like palak paneer, spinach dal tadka or a simple stir-fry like this one. This time I was surprised to find moringa leaves/ drumstick leaves/Murunga keerai in our Indian grocery story and grabbed it without second thoughts. My mom usually makes sambar or kootu, I wanted to just stir-fry it along with some moong dal.Read More …
