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. I recently picked some small sized zucchinis JUST to make zoodles and it came just fine. I love how it comes together so easily and tastes so much like the real deal.. but healthier.. and tastier.

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 …

Broccoli Curry

broccoli_gravy Growing up, I used to be such a picky eater and refused to eat vegetables. Give me any fruit, I would eat it without complaining. Even now I’m not a big fan of any vegetable, but I have grown old enough to realize that whether you like it or not, you gotta eat it. I try to make it easy to eat by cooking it in a way which I would like. After lots of experimentation with broccoli, now I have started to like broccoli if it’s made this way. No biggie. Just another  tomato-onion gravy with broccoli in it and I loved it. Not just me, my brother who never ever comments on food said that this curry is too good. Here’s how I made it..Read More …

Hi guys, today I’m sharing the “recipe” for citrus flavored sugar. You can buy this kinda sugar from any store or you can make it yourself at home for a fraction of cost.
